Greetings Adventurers! Welcome to the September Newsletter. It has been a long time since we have had a newsletter, so just to inform some of our adventurers who have recently joined, this newsletter will cover the most recent updates, new staff additions/promotions/demotions and Lachlan’s current journey on the TreasureWars server along with much more exciting information! Contributors to the September Newsletter: @Ultimate_Derp, @Jobmaximous, @FluffyBear and @CruderTax Server IP: treasurewars.net Forums: forum.treasurewars.net Server store: buy.treasurewars.net Discord: http://discord.gg/treasurewars Team POGO This month we have seen the return of Lachlan for his fourth season on the realm Cursed Desert! Joining him on his adventure will be a few familiar faces from the TreasureWars server and if you’re lucky enough, you might be able to join him on his adventure! Make sure you keep up to date with Lachlan’s series on his youtube channel, Lachlan.

Warzone Overhauls As our warzone maps were severely outdated, we decided to swap out the old and replace them with new maps ready for all the adventurers raring to start their journey alongside Lachlan. We also decided to place the warzones in their own world. This means that derps are no longer a problem but, if you still wish to derp, you may do so at your heart's content at any one of the six warps on the realm, though be sure to use these derps wisely! Clue Scrolls This update was major. With this recent update, our team introduced a variety of new steps for clue scrolls! Along with this, new rewards were added to the loot table, so start grinding XP for heroics and gain an overwhelming advantage over your opponents! For additional information, check out this server announcement thread. Battle of the Warzones Earlier this month, the Battle of the Warzones event was created. This once in a lifetime event allowed Players were able to claim the ancient battlegrounds of our past and use them to their advantage to raid an Admin box like no other. The event was successful with large community support. To view the full announcement thread for the event, click HERE. Duels As you all may know, the duels system was overhauled completely. You can now fight to the death in specially built arenas and spectate your friends spill some pixels on those that challenge them, all from a safe distance. For all the information and more changed in this update, please click HERE. Security At TreasureWars, security is taken seriously, which is why the security update was released! With this recent update, an optimized VPN blocker was introduced, meaning any users with a VPN enabled won’t be able connect. As well as this, two-step authentication was added. To activate 2fa, log into TreasureWars and execute the command ‘/2fa’ for further instructions. This update was introduced to prevent any malicious users using your account.

The Interactables Update Our most recent update at the time of writing this post, this content addition was completely centered around adding in ideas suggested by the community! Items including sell wands, resurrection skulls and statistic tomes were the first to make an appearance in this update. For more information, feel free to check out the server announcement here. Monthly Diaries For all of you returning players, we’re excited to let you all know we recently began to release new Treasure Diaries monthly!
