Drezo Regalia Special Announcement to the Residence of Sky City Draconis
The curse of the Dragon has been subdued.
Since the conquering of the Pyramid of Light, the establishment of the Sky City Draconis, and the appearance of the Dragon Prince, the curse that has riddled all dragon species has been broken. All Drezo Regalia species can now shift form from dragon to human with one’s own will.
“No way,” the older generation of dragons cried out happily at the news that was given to them. “We can finally change without the time limit!”
The residence of the Sky City Draconis, especially dragon players, were thrilled. For something like this to happen would help them level up in hard areas a lot quicker than before, allowing them to catch up faster to the older generation players, but just when they were about to be jumping in joy, more messages appeared before them.
All dragons, starting from level 200, leveling requirement will take three times the amount to level up, but for compensation, for each level up, the strength, speed, magic of one’s general dragon race will be accommodated.
The players groaned, not liking the handicap that they were given. To take three times longer for them to level up was ridiculous in itself, but it was understandable. Their Origin form gave them double the status boost making them all into a formidable fighter that can rival high level players, giving them the edge.
Still messages continued to flood in front of them, informing of many changes to come.
Caution! Since the curse has been broken, the caster of the curse has been notified. Caution!
Their thoughts became darker. From great news, to mediocre, and finally to bad. The players didn’t know how to feel through the range of fluctuating emotions that seem to constantly toy with them, making them tired. Even still, they wearily read the red flaring messages as if it was a sign of dark tidings to come in the future days. Everyone knew that they that something was out there that caused them to be bound by a curse.
The thought of the demons prince, that came and ravaged their past generations, made them very weary, for they didn’t know what the future would hold for the residences of the Draconis city.
Blessing of the Dragon Prince
Protection from the Dragon Prince and his Generals has gone into effect. The Sky Cities barrier has risen in leaps and bounds. There is a saying that the barrier shall stand until the last remaining Dragon Generals and the Prince still lives. All monster class lower than the any of the Dragon General or the Prince will not be able to enter its the dragon’s domain. Dragon Fear status effect has gone into effect towards Demons, Monsters, and anyone who deems to harm the Dragon Prince and his General’s. For all non-citizens, the effect of fear will be cut down to the minimal till one becomes a citizen of the City. The dragon prince does not force anyone to live under his rule, but when one decides to go back to become a non-citizen and breaks away from the city, the Dragon Fear status effect will increase in output by three folds.
The residence life of the Sky City has slowly but surely begun to change. Each and everyone of them saw the large benefits of new buildings, new lands, and even the blessings that had been granted onto the residence. This made Sky City one of the number one safe place to be. Every day, the Sky City would stay up in the sky except for four hours to recharge, barriers will not be down during this time. Monsters on land wouldn’t dare to attack the city during that time, and sky monsters aren’t as abundant as the land monsters, giving them less to fight against.
Not only that, the barrier was almost exactly like the Fire Continent barrier that kept the whole Fire Continent safe for thousands of years. To have something like that around a small budding city was very special. The other Kingdoms had been countering monster invasions since the collapse of the barrier, making security that much more difficult than before. Lands ravaged, towns destroyed, and only the larger cities were able to keep most of the monster invasion at bay.
This caused quite a bit of devastation to the Kingdoms around the Continent, making living everyday life a lot more difficult than before. This was especially true for new players where the beginning grounds were becoming harder to train due to the random encounters of high level monsters that came bulldozing in and slaughtering them.
So far, only the big cities were able to protect what little beginners they had, but eventually after the update, the news of a safe zone for beginners were quickly posted on the web, becoming a hot topic for old and new players.
More beginner players chose the new races that appeared in the Sky City, while others started their base city in the City of Elements, quickly quadrupling the number of residences in the Sky City. Business in the Sky City has thrived to the point where monster subjugation was becoming less of a threat, while low level players made their way to the City of Elements to set up their base.
Every time new lands churned by magma magic, the residence of Sky City move into either cultivate the land or build more buildings to accommodate the rising number of people, living inside the ‘safe’ zone. Prices quickly rises, blacksmith, merchants, and other production class quickly made their way towards the Sky City to compete for a space on the buildings itself.
New buildings that were created became more extravagant, fitting in with the natural scenery of the elven trees that were growing quickly that Zero had planted. The elven architectures quickly demolished the older buildings, because of the lack of appeal and stating that the beauty of the dragon can’t be seen with such crude method and had quickly but surely changed the Sky City. Their allies, the elves, were quite persuasive towards the dragon race that it was hard enough to say no when they pushed their thoughts on construction.
Even many Elves took residences in Green Island because of the abundant magic that the elves especially liked. While the few handful of dwarves and blacksmith took their residency in the Fire Island. The trolls on the other hand seem to congregate towards the Black Island territory, for the island reminded them more close to home for its sandy and partial barren land.
What made the change even more reassuring was the Special Announcement throughout the whole server. The retrieval quest for the three kingdoms made it that much more appealing for high level players to flock towards the city to take part in a quest that could change the city life. For everyone who was anticipating for the start of the next major quest to go into effect.
