TAW Newsletter September 24th 2019

new event.png

building competition 2.png
Can you believe our current Portal Chamber hasn’t seen an upgrade for 8 years? It was first built in The Shire during the Age of Gods, one of the earliest Ages on TAW. It was located under the Shire, and remains there to this day – even after The Shire was destroyed all those years ago!

So that brings us to our new Build Competition. We want YOU to build our new Portal Chamber for the Ages! When the competition concludes we will be choosing 1 build to replace our old portal chamber. The Portal Chamber Building Competition begins this Saturday, September 28th at 12pm EST.

Watch the Orientation video below

Contact Drakortha to reserve a spot in the competition area.

There are prizes to be won for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. These are;

  • 1st Place
    A Stack of XP Bottles + A Gift from the Gods
    1 Month of Free TAW Premium Membership
  • 2nd Place
    A Stack of XP Bottles
    1 Month of Free TAW Membership
  • 3rd Place
    A Stack of XP Bottles

Requirements for the Build;

  • A Minimum of 12 Portals (more may be seen as a bonus)
  • At least 1 Central Portal that leads to the Port Orange Lighthouse
  • Must be enclosed (closed in walls, floors, and ceiling), as it will be located underground on TAW.

How to Join?
From the starting date you will be able to claim one of our competition portals. Simply PM Drakortha in-game or on Discord and he will assist you in claiming your portal.

We recommend something with an Ancient World theme. For example Ancient heads or something else familiar and recognizable. However, we will leave the creativity to you!

    This is a private global channel shared between you and your Faction mates. All players who are in a Faction have access to this channel. No cooldowns.
  • [World Channel] Global – Same World Only (Alias: wc)
    A global channel accessible to all players that can only be heard by others on the same world. Useful for making announcements, asking a question, making a trade offer, and other things of that nature.  180 second cooldown.
  • [Ancient Worlds Channel] Universal – All Worlds (Alias: taw)
    This is a Universal channel that is accessible to TAW Members and acts as a new form of chat that reaches all worlds. No cooldown. Note: This is a private channel and can only be heard by TAW Members & Staff

killer chronicles.png

unknown (3).png

Mrtrustme sits alone in his house

It was discovered that a bloodthirsty killer was living right under the noses of the Citizens of Voyager’s Wharf. The Killer, Mrtrustme, was ruthless in his serial killing of many innocents of the new city. Nobody suspected anything could have been wrong in the quaint port town. But sometimes evil can lurk in the dark corners of the most unexpected places..

Read the full story on the TAW Codex HERE



A mysterious portal opened up nearby the Freelancer Fort. A large group of well geared TAWers took the main road from Euloria to Freelancer Fort to investigate.

What they found was a dimensional portal with a strange mix between nether & aether spewing out a variety of mob types. Enderman, Endermites, Witches, Summoners, and Blazes poured from the gates and advanced towards Freelancer Fort. As the skies darkened the danger grew and the corruption spread further and faster.

Just as the situation grew further out of control, the heavens were said to have cracked open with a flash of light, and a being glowing with light descended, relighting the landscape below and smiting all evil mobs that were crawling the landscape. The corruption was purified, and a voice was heard. The Mortals below gathered to hear the words.
