Hail friends,

I have added "Fates of Twinion", the 1993 sequel to Yserbius, to my remake of Yserbius at https://www.medievalands.com. The two games play side by side on the same server, sharing a single chat room, guild system, and bulletin boards.

I have also added a new Treasure System with millions of new loot items to the two games. Players will now see items with powers never before seen in Yserbius. By picking the right mix of items you can now create a unique play style, whether that means focusing on healing your fellow party members, doing more damage with spells than any other player, or battering down skeletons with items that specifically harm undead monsters.

I have also added a new Item Bank in the Keep, which expands your inventory so you have space to keep your favorite quest items and loot drops.

In the past year, 500 people have logged on, 1,000 characters have been created, and 11 million monsters have been slain. There are nearly 1,000 posts on the in-game bulletin boards, and in total players have spent 25,000 hours online. I know it's no fortnite ;) but it's the biggest recreation of Yserbius since INNRevival. I hope to see you in the game!

Let me know if you have any questions. Take care and keep in touch,

Zane

Good ol' TSN. Do I know anyone here? I played as SavantFT or Baalzevuv, mostly Red Baron.

Zane,
If you go to the shadows of yserbius wiki, I think it is NOT referencing your version of YS.  There is this paragraph at the bottom of the wiki:
In early 2016, the server was shut down making online play not possible until recently.[citation needed]

There appears to be no reference to your version and no one apparently knew how to contact our benefactor. When I last played there my life was in a MAJOR upheaval which led to my divorce and new marriage to a man I played YS on TSN with, NO it was NOT Sovereign as he and I are still very good friends.  I would love hearing any updates before I pass on.  I have managed thus far to fight the odds by still being alive a year after the doctors told me I was inoperable and to get my affairs in order.  I lost count of how many heart attacks and stents they have inserted since then.  When I tried to go to yserbius.org it is no longer an active url.  I was hoping to read a few of the old posts, but oh well. I have kept in touch with several women as well as men that played there on TSN and INN.  A good deal of us are Ack grandparents today, including Sovereign.   Some have left this world and are exploring the next realm , if it exists!

Anyhow, I wanted to see if you still have YS online running.  I am positive I have lost any login and password I once had.  Please do not share ANY of the information I have shared regarding Sovereign or myself.  I would love to come back and play for a bit if it is still there.

I do NOT recommend playing Fates of Twinion. That game shipped after dozens of bug reports on fatal errors that were not getting fixed by Ybarra. I fixed all those fatals in Cawdor, but evidently all the guilds that told me they hated the way macros were destroying competitive balance were lying to me, as I also killed the macros in Cawdor and the Guilds all moved back to Yserbius. The most common of the fatals was in PVP when someone tried to flee the combat. The fleer got one extra pull on the semi-random table, which lost synchronicity on the other machines, which caused two (or more) different random numbers. That eventually would cause one of the players to think someone is dead and another player thinking they were alive, and the game would hang. If you've got Twinion source code, it would take two PCs and some time to find and fix that. The same bug is probably also in Yserbius.

Did they ever fix the PVP fatal bug (in SOY and FOT). If not, I can tell them how.
