Community News Into the Future: Using AI to Enhance Istaria Istaria Community Manager
April 1, 2023

Hello Istarians! We have exciting news to share with you today and we can't wait to dive in.

I am sure all of you have heard of the recent advancements in AI, but in case you have not, let us give you the rundown. Recent innovations in technology have resulted in very powerful AI - or artificial intelligence - programs, able to take prompts in plain English and return nearly anything you could ask for - scripts for plays, stories, conversations, and even images. AI has grown from the simple decision-making programs powering things such as our own monsters' wander paths to self-educating electronic brains capable of learning and evolving.

As you all know, we at Virtrium are a very small but dedicated team. Any help we can get to improve our game, we are excited to jump on. One of our biggest bottlenecks in producing new content and updates is the amount of manpower required to produce interesting storylines and art assets. We have seen the advancement of AI and are ecstatic to use it as a tool to improve our workflow.

To this end, we have decided to scale back the human involvement in our development process and submit to our new AI overlords. We hope as being among the first adopters of this unique technology that we may be spared in the upcoming collapse of society. The development process has been redefined to the following:

Live Updates Santva's Helper Event 2022 Istaria Community Manager
December 26, 2022

Greetings, one and all!

Recently, a hatchling has reached out to the Imperial Army for the assistance of the Gifted. She tends to Santva Claws' gift stock, acquiring materials for gifts and such. After the celebration, she found herself short of materials for the upcoming year.

With millions and millions of materials to gather over the year, there's no time to lose, Santva's Helper is requesting your council in New Trismus within the date range of December 27th (Chaos @ 12pm CST) and December 28th (Order @ 12pm CST). Many children and hatchling's next Gnomekindle is at stake!

Community News Silvane Istaria Community Manager
October 17, 2022
We noticed that Silvane was near completion on Chaos. Congratulations for your dedication. We’d like to tell you more about it.
The Silvane event is a side content of Stronghold of Nature update, the main course being the story quests at the Tower of Nature. Its goal was to provide a one time shard scale event where adventurers could protect crafters during their work, to bring the players community through a common project and also to offer a teleporting system close to the tower.
We’ve heard you wanted more than just crafting and we have listened. We asked AmonGwareth if we could go further, he took a puff on his cigar and told us: “Come get some.”. We understood it as a yes.
Ghosts in the rebuilt structures were meant to be used for “future content”. They will be put to good use with the next content update: more stories about Silvane and unique purchasable items will be available.
We are sorry to not provide the new content earlier, but we need to admit: Chaos players were faster than we expected.
Thank you for your patience and for playing Istaria.
