There has been a new system message!

[01:33]<System> Once again, Whispers filled with rumors are adrift, mingling with the citizenship and spreading like a plague...rumors of new discoveries made by the College of Silence.

Has anyone else seen other system messages of this nature recently? The last time was in the run up to the tower starting to come through the rift and then the kerberos happening.

If you have seen different messages, please post them here with the date they were sent.

Thanks,

-Eowan

Theory:

The messages observed aren't new but rather automated each time a new player climbs into the highest level of achievement in the "event"?

https://elgea.illyriad.co.uk/#/World/Events" rel="nofollow - https://elgea.illyriad.co.uk/#/World/Events

Can someone get a comment from Lupia [ITG] or Ryklaw [Ascn]?  Did they recently join Rupert?

Rationale: Every time someone reaches the highest level a new level must be created.  I know that Dominator of Kerberos 3 was already present because of Count Rupert's [nCrow] efforts.  But it could be a bug in the logic anytime (rather than just the first time) someone joins the highest level achieved that it triggers the System message.

Will there be some addition "released" by the College of Silence?  Perhaps when someone reaches the highest level of achievement.  I don't think it is based on a calendar but rather an accomplishment.  

Have you ever wondered how the College of Silence shares its information with System?  Silently.

Apparently Cerb repeated one of them but accidentally screwed up and posted as Cerb not system so it is not automated

Neither Ryklaw nor Lupia have received messages... Lupia is sending some diploes to the rift to see if that does anything.

When did Lupia move to their most recent level?

Apparently Lupia has been on a level with Rupert roughly for a while... rylkaw actually got to that level as a result of the messages...

Hmm... so System has become sentient as a result of the experimentation with Faction AI and started impersonating the devs....Illycon is a trap set by the machine in order to capture slaves to serve in its grand army and go to war with first person shooters?
Rikoo and Luna didn't leave the company, they were sacrificed to fuel System's rise to full sentience and then their bodies were fed to Audrey.

If Cerb misfired as himself rather than as System then you could conclude that something new is actually coming.  Or, I could suggest that each time a player reaches the highest level in this event the System makes an announcement but it is not automated.  

The next time a relevant System message appears in GC please check the leaderboard to see if anyone joined the top three or to see if Rupert has reached new heights!

Rule #1 of Rikoo is that we never mention Rikoo.

There is only one rational response to this news, we must come together and occupy all of the squares around each of the College's hubs!  The glowing elf warriors cannot spread to the uncorrupted Broken Lands of PvP perfection!   We've had previous scares in this game that we all remember, some of them were swift and ruinous and others were slowly eroding our rights to play the way we want others to play.  Offenses and rage abandonments abounded and some say the game will never recover.  We cannot let this happen again as my armies are already busy setting siege to inactive accounts that I never want to leave the game!

We will need leaders to organize the efforts at each hub, let me begin by delegating these responsibilities now.

1. Wyvale -  https://elgea.illyriad.co.uk/#/World/Map/-195/-2757" rel="nofollow - https://elgea.illyriad.co.uk/#/World/Map/-195/-2757 - snot will lead the way here given the name of her cities indicates that only she knows whether the l in Almenly is silent.  The College can be constrained by her lack of silence!

2. College of Silence -  https://elgea.illyriad.co.uk/#/World/Map/-768/-1910" rel="nofollow - https://elgea.illyriad.co.uk/#/World/Map/-768/-1910 - only one can lead us here into the heart of the glowing elf warriors, and that is biff.  His use of custom city icons clearly shows his ability to deceive the enemy while distracting them as a lunatic yelling insults from under a bridge to random travelers. 

3. Hall of Reflection -  https://elgea.illyriad.co.uk/#/World/Map/-375/-2119" rel="nofollow - https://elgea.illyriad.co.uk/#/World/Map/-375/-2119 - Clearly no one has spent more time reflecting on Illyriad than adrian.  He, like biff, has a one man alliance but unlike biff the player known as adrian has spent considerable time by himself on his island city pondering his ponderings.  The monkeys must have typed something useful by now!

I'll need a faithful forum reader to contact each of these players for me as I have most them blocked. 

Good luck!

Wartow seems to know what's going on and I fully support his action plan. I would personally quit the game if my cities were attacked by NPCs as I have opted for a pure PvP Illyriad experience. Any forced PvE would constitute bullying by the AI.

Please, save your local PvPers today and #stopthesilence.

I am sending my spies around his cities to investigate what kind of weed he is been growing around there and using...

I tried scouting the College of Silence as sometimes you can find a faction army sitting in hubs.

Nothing there at the moment.

Could it be that the devs are planning to give out some new units as tourney prizes?

Something new to try out E. I'm sure the College of Silence will be a bit more crowded the coming time.
And yeah Tens i think it could either be that, or some sort of faction to battle the Underworld troops. Shining armor sounds angelic, which would be the opposite of undead.
And maybe it is another way to obtain the long sought after ancient armor which so far hasn't been solved with the Hoc quest,through the underworld event. Lots to ponder and figure out.

Updates always appreciated Eeoworms if you are able to see anything.  I'm not so sure a change for what is still called an "event" is going to be detectable via diplos on hubs.

I don't have any scribes or spies rn... will look at getting some...
A scribe is being sent to the rift by lupia but they have very low movement speeds

Lupia had scouts hit the rift slightly before the last message in GC... could be linked?
Are these the normal reports for them?

I cannot find any 'slums' surrounding the College of Silence hub or any their faction hubs. Also cannot find any new NPC unit surround any of the College of Silence hubs, chalking it down to UFO sighting by some commoners. ConfusedGeek

The following spots are the slums:
From their faction page:

On my arrival I was somewhat shocked to find that, as a trader, I was directed to the dingiest, most miserable, labyrinthine maze of alleyways imaginable, in the shadow of the great college itself. In this ramshackle city I found a cramped market, shoddy lodgings, a bustle of traders and laborers and beggars, and, as the narrow streets are also open sewers, an unpleasant stench. 

If these don't sound like slums then what else would they be?
Have human t2 scouts hitting within the next 24 hrs

Yeh Eowan... I figured that much out, the slums are within the hubs...

How you managed to send diplo units to the hubs... I dont get that option...

Posted By: Wartow
Date Posted: 21 Jun 2018 at 12:17
I don't believe there is anything to be found via diplo or other player action at this time.  The System messages are all build up to another DEV content release.  Per typical Illy style there will be a lengthy build up.  I would suggest that an actionable release will occur shortly after the end of the Kodatournament.

I am accepting gold for anyone interested in purchasing that slum to the east of the College of Silence as suggested by Rajput.  I cannot guarantee that title will come through clean.

If you have to do a workaround such as this, or editing a URL, to get the option you desire then it is likely that the results of the effort are not going to be fruitful.

One exception I can think of is to harvest on a square where the option is not presented.  See the rare herb next to the Roetagh hub in the BL.  And don't fret, the herb isn't anything exciting, you aren't missing anything as far as I can tell.

Moving a town to a herb/mineral square is legal (assuming the square is non-NPC and otherwise legal). Arrival destroys the basic herb or mineral on the square.

I've a trader in the College of Silence hub in Westmarch, and have already hit it with thieves, scouts, and spies.
 
I think other folk are right in that this is most likely just a warning that the event is progressing / coming to an end rather than requiring any action on our part (though it's no harm to experiment!).
