Keep an eye on this thread; we will update it with additional projects and updates as they are completed. Note: The game will be in beta at the time of the transition from Ironclaw. You may encounter unfinished areas, bugs, or other missed things. We will continue to work on these, but it may takeRead More →

Allegory Transition Meeting #2 (10/7/2019) by ironclaw - StoryHost Roo says, “I know some of you are new. Are you familiar with the changes that will be happening in a few months?” Mirage nods. Lady Wynter arrives through the exit of the Grand Pavilion. Lady Wynter waves to Niava, Jayland, Mirage, Bjorn and you. Jayland says, “That we’ll all going to become Human, and speaking in Italian accents..Aye.” You chuckle at Jayland. Niava says, “Not really. I literally just started haha But, I’ve been poking around the forums.” You smile at Niava, “Welcome.” Niava smiles. Niava says, “Thanks.” Lady Wynter waves to Niava, “Welcome!” You wave to Lady Wynter. Lady Wynter waves toRead More →
Allegory Transition Meeting #1 (10/7/2019) by ironclaw - StoryHost Roo says to Kilana, “In approximately 5-8 months, Skotos as a gaming community will be disbanding. What that means is the more popular games (ICO, CM, TEC, Lazarus) will be passed off to their respective hosts.” StoryHost Roo says, “That’s the short of it. There’s more info here –http://forum.skotos.net/forum/general-skotos/general-skotos-aa/1774640-splitting-up-skotos.” StoryHost Roo says, “As far as what this means for us…” StoryHost Roo says, “It’s a little complicated in that we have to have permission from the makers of Ironclaw to operate an Ironclaw themed game. The “contract” we have is very vague in that it doesn’t talk about if it can be transferred.” StoryHostRead More →
ATTENTION: Mandatory Evacuation (10/1/2019) by Kjell - On October 14th, there will be a mandatory evacuation for all characters to Three Corners so that we can finish preparations for the switch to Allegory of Empires on November 1st. Characters who do not voluntarily evacuate will be automatically moved to Three Corners at that time. During the temporary evacuation period, you will not have access to any of the locations in Triskellian, including your private room(s). You will not lose any of the items in your private room(s) unless they reference branded Ironclaw lore, but staff will not be retrieving items left behind for you during the evacuation. You are encouraged to take anyRead More →
RP & the Environment (9/2/2019) by Kjell - I want to take a moment to remind everyone that the game world extends well beyond the interactions that you have with other PCs and VPs. Everything around you, including the weather, NPC actions, and so on is intended to inspire your RP, and you should consider how your character(s) would or would not react to what you’re seeing as a player. How you handle it is up to you, but remember that nothing is there “just because.” Have fun with it and create some stories! KjellRead More →
Major Crafting Update (7/1/2019) by ironclaw - Greetings, As some of you have noticed, we’ve been doing quite a bit of work on the crafting databases in the last week or so. Our intent is to: * Add some diversity to crafting careers by allowing characters to build their own pattern databases * Merge similar careers to get rid of the annoying problem of not being able to find characters of certain skillsets General crafting career updates We have went through the majority of databases and redistributed items according to level. Each level has been (or will be) assigned 4 craftable items. For many careers, especially seamstress, this leaves a lot ofRead More →
Expected Downtime for June 21st (6/20/2019) by ironclaw - Ironclaw may experience some downtime on Friday June 21, 2019 between the hours of 2pm and 4pm eastern time for maintenance. Ironclaw’s machine will be receiving a much needed upgrade that will help with stability. Even if you are able to log in during this time, the machine may reboot and revert to an old backup. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause!Read More →
Mugger Updates (10/29/2018) by ironclaw - Just a few updates to the way muggers operate: Muggers will take no more than 20 denarii from a PC. Whenever defeating a mugger in combat, you will take whatever coin they happen to be carrying–unless you choose to let them go!   RooRead More →

Bug Fixes 06.06.2018 (6/6/2018) by ironclaw - Plants Many of the issues regarding plants have been addressed Fertilizer will now show the proper message when used on unfertilized plants. Many plants have lost their quality descriptors. Over the next couple of days, you should start to see those come back as the quality code corrects itself. There was a major bug with most plants incorrectly showing produce despite there being nothing to harvest. This caused them to never produce. This has been fixed and plants should start to grow produce over the next few days. The garden room in the Docktown boarding house has been updated to spawn with functional herbs. ThisRead More →
Regarding the Events Calendar (6/6/2018) by Roo - Until now, staff have been handling adding events to the event calendar. Going forward, I’d like to request that players help us out by creating a web account here and @assist so we can give you privileges to add your own events. Since there is no recurring event option, weekly meetings will need to be added manually. It is very taxing for us to remember who meets when and where so this is the best solution we have to ensure no one is forgotten about. If embassies/guilds/factions want to create a single universal account for all members to share, that’s fine. Just assist with theRead More →
Ironclaw Online: New Look (5/24/2018) by ironclaw - As you have probably  noticed by  now, Ironclaw Online now has a new look! We are by no means finished with adding all the content and help files we plan to add but we do have some other fun features for you to get excited about.   Web Accounts We will allow players to create web accounts on a trial basis, which will allow you to comment on posts. Other roles are available by request which allow you to post events to the event calendar, articles for the Calabrian Chronicle, and help files. If any of these roles interest you, reach out to a memberRead More →
Community Meeting Log 02/27/2018 (5/24/2018) by ironclaw - You say, “So the reason we called this meeting is we’ve had a lot of questions the last couple of weeks regarding the Sailors Guild. Which is awesome because it means things are happening in game.” Neith moves from StoryBuilder Cosmo to an oak desk. Neith sits down on an oak desk. Baronetess Morven silently cheers. Lady Meepers listens to you. You cheer Maddog Madalina mostly, “Look what you did.” Commander Roofus enters the world. Commander Roofus grumbles. Maddog Madalina smiles thankfully at you. Baronetess Morven applauds Maddog Madalina. Lady Meepers grins at Maddog Madalina. You say, “The most recent question, which I think isRead More →
Game Direction (5/21/2018) by ironclaw - The purpose of this thread is to share our game vision and the steps we will be taking to achieve this vision. What is our vision for Ironclaw Online? This little blurb on our website says it best: “Ironclaw Online is an anthropomorphic role-playing game set at the cusp of change on the large island continent of Calabria. Many different sentient races, cultures, and societies are converging upon the dock town city of Triskellian. As a player, you will start with humble beginnings, only to become involved in machinations as each noble house vies for control and the guilds strive for power. Which side willRead More →
