After four years of service to BA, our distinguished Legates Aravel and Vidguy have decided to step down from their positions as Legates due to a lack of time and lack of involvement in BA related games. They join CalmTerror, who has previously stepped down due to lack of involvement, as Legatus Emeritus.
We are delighted to announce that Kyrhie, Brewski, and Ezweb have accepted the position of Legate, to help lead and guide Bellum Aeternus as a Meta-Community.
After we completed the first two buildings our guild harvesters have been stockpiling harvested materials and our member gold donations have began to come in.
On Tuesday night we decided that we had enough gold and materials to erect additional buildings.
Upon checking the after-patch mat requirements we realized that Crom had smiled upon the AoC players: Funcom as lowered gold and mat requirements substantially for all buildings (sure glad we waited). After that some of the guild members decided to dig a little deeper and we were able to complete all first tier buildings.
There are some additional items that must be built before we can begin on tier two, such as weapons and walls, but this is a great start.
We wish to thank everyone that contributed gold and mats to this worthy endeavor. Keep up the great work and keep those donations coming.
Based on the results of a poll and recent security issues with Teamspeak, we are moving our Community Games voice chat to a Ventrilo Server. For the short term we will be losing the status block on the front page. I am looking to get one working with Ventrilo.
The good news is that you will no longer need to register to use the server. This will remain unless we start to have issues.
This server was originally specific to EQ2 folks and they still have a space on it. Please do not bug them.
Bellum Aeternus is proud to announce that we are involved in “Pirates of the Burning Sea”. PotBS Homepage
PotBS is a new MMO set in 1720, with ship combat, swashbuckling, crafting and some good old teamwork of blowing stuff up!
We currently have a small society of 9 members and are looking for more Captains to join us on the high seas!
Bellum Aeternus has a production line of crafting ships, upgrade cannons, ammo and consumables to keep our ships in top fighting form. We are preparing for action of doing group missions, small raids, gaining loot from our vanquished enemies and winning the map of the Caribbean with some good old PVP.
PotBS is a more casual style MMO game that anyone can play. A low level can group with higher levels, crafting is done using real time and rewards are plenty. Any type of player from the dedicated to the few hours per week player, everyone is useful and has a welcome place! Check out the BA PotBS forums.
Come play as a master and commander and take on heroic roles and complete amazing deeds as soon as you step aboard your ship.
Bellum Aeternus is currently raising our sails on the Morgan server as the Pirate class.
We use the community TeamSpeak server to get our game on!
And if anyone has a Sony Station Access Pass, you already have the game for free. Or if you are still playing PlanetSide or EQ2, it’s an easy upgrade to your account.
BA Community Games
For a while now we've had a "Community Games" section of our site, but aside from BF2142 we have not done much with it. I am pleased to announce that we are now planning to do a bit more with it.
We have added a new Pledge for "Bellum Aeternus Community Games". This will enable players to join Bellum Aeternus without having to join one of our existing MMO Provinces. At the same time we are making it easier to form up a Community Game. The first "Province Lite" to take advantage of this is Tabula Rasa. If you are interested in forming up a group for a game, with forum and voice comms, contact myself or one of the other Legates.
Almost a year ago when we were doing the new site, Destrider (one of our Original Legates) cooked up a new helm image for the site masthead. We never quite got around to putting it up, but now I have. You will likely need to force a refresh of the page (Ctrl-Click-Refresh in most browsers) to see it. I think it looks dandy.
Brewski, the awesome man that he is, has purchased a Team Fortress 2 server for us to use.
You can find it in one of three ways:
1) Look for "Bellum Aeternus TF2" in the server browser
2) Connect to 18.104.22.168:27015
3) Add a BA Member to your Steam List and get invited to the BA Steam Group so you can see what server we're on.
Note that the server is costing $38/month to run - If you would like to defray Brewski's costs, please donate to BA and we will pass the cash on. See News Item Below or the Donation Buttons on the right for donation details.
One Last Item:
If you are interested in playing in a TF2 Ladder, SpyderMonkey is forming up a group. Details can be found in his post here. If we get sufficiently dedicated players, TF2 will likely become a BA Province so we can recruit to it.
Bellum Aeternus needs your support. We are paying about $50/month for our new clean and clear Ventrilo Voice Hosting, and about $200/year for Web Hosting and Domains. We need your cash to help keep our servers running smoothly. In the past your Legates had paid for hosting out of their own pockets, but we would like to spread the burden around. Every bit helps and is appreciated.
There are two ways to support BA:
* A 1 Time donation
* A repeating donation of $5/month
Donate what you can, but a recurring donation is best, since it will only take 15 subscribers to support BA indefinitely.
