What's New?

23 April 2004
Well, I have been working on a new site, since this one now has ads.  It should look very similar to the old site we had (YAY!).  I'll be putting the address here when we finally get it up and running.
 ~ Thepio

8 April 2004
I bid you all a very fond farewell. I leave the site for Thepio to take care of. I have discontinued payment and thus you will be receiving pop-ups when viewing the site. There is also a 20 MB space loss, so hopefully none of the pages are effected. Those of you that have me on messenger, keep in touch. I will keep my AE account active and may log in from time to time. We'll see. Well, until next time, I wish you all safe hunting and good drops.

9March 2004
Yes, you are not seeing things, but the news is being updated twice in one week.  This time it is news for AE.  This is from www.ashenempires.com: There are several other topics to cover in this message. First, the beta period officially ends 12:00 Noon PST on Friday, March 12, 2004. As promised, all customers with unexpired days in their Dransik accounts as of January 11, 2004, will receive full credit for those days when they sign up for an Ashen Empires account. Second, the monthly subscription pricing will be $8.95. Third, we will introduce three new servers to support three new game worlds, the names and rules of which will come from the Development Team in the next couple of days. 
There will also be an update at the end of March with many new things(check the AE news for details).

7 March 2004
Wow, I guess this should have been updated more often.  Alright I changed the Armory. It is now posted in the Task Force part of the forums. See there for details.  As always if you see something wrong with the site, send out an email for us to change.  Oh, and don't forget to check out Ram's post in the Dev Journals on Stratics, There are new graphics coming and they look good.

10 August 2003
I am currently doing a big update on the site with everything. I am doing my changes off all replys that Gentle gets from the "Greetings, DNM old and new, active , retired and MIA" Email. If you have not replied, do so soon!!!! Let me know if you have an idea, or think something is wrong (members list is one of the first things being updated so fear not). Don't forget, reply to Gentle!!!

All member must e-mail me their updated character information (ie server, rank, units, Main Skill) by midnight; 12:00 a.m.; 2400 (Dransik Time) Sunday night. I will be sending an e-mail to Admiral Rogers with a list of all members that dop not comply with this order.

24 June 2003
We got the 3rd book done, so hoepfully we will have the deed soon on KI. Thanks to all those who helped us try and get it.
I also made a few corrections to the members list. If you see something wrong or have an idea for the site, let me or Barazaph know (links above).

21 June 2003

17 June 2003
As stated by MAJ Thepio I have a new computer. I would have been here sooner but I have been extremely busy lately. I hope to be around more often now to keep the site updated as often as possible. Join Admiral Rogers this weekend in attempting to get the deed on Krythan Inception server. Active Dransik ClassiK members be sure to check in with Admiral Touch. If you find anything on the members page that doesn't fit about your character be sure to e-mail me or MAJ Thepio about it.

03 June 2003
Well I finally have had time to update the site, now that finals are done. Barazaph lost his computer to lightning so that is why there was a lack of updates. He has a new one and will hopefully be around more soon. I have members up to date from teh last list I got and am hoping to update more of the site in the next few days. Also the Armory is updated, Check it out!

28 April 2003
I'd like to welcome Captain Thepio as my new partner here in 'communications headquarters'. We are currently working on the Members Page to get the members and ranks up-to-date. Hopefully with the addition to the communications staff we can get updates to the site more swiftly for you.

24 April 2003
The open recruitment ended the 19th. We are back to invite only membership. Changes have been made to the Members Page.

10 April 2003
We have open recruitment for a limited time as many members have retired with the launch of Pay to Play. Ask any member details for joining. Updates have been made to the 'Members' and 'Friend or Foe' pages. Please comtinue to keep me informed on your rank and unit information. I sometimes overlook information that needs changed.

31 March 2003
Dransik is FULL pay-to-play.

Congratulations to Thepio, Ferro, Hogmeister, and dark vanilla on their recent promotions. With the launch of pay-to-play many great members have gone into early retirement. If you cannot pay-to-play and you are not marked as retired on the Members Page PLEASE contact me as soon as possible. We need to know who is still with us and who isn't. Also, with many retirements come many job openings. Lets start thinking about potential Navy&Marines and get them into the recruitment process.

Be sure you are checking the DNM Forums daily. New information is being presented there often. You don't want to miss out on anything.

Any comments or ideas, contact me with the link at the bottom of this page.

23 March 2003
Update done to Members Page. New page added for coming maps. Please check your information on Members page and Units page to be sure all information is up-to-date.

7 March 2003
Dransik goes 'Pay to Play' on 10 March 2003. Please everyone attend the next guild meeting this weekend. We need to know who is planning on sticking through pay to play and who isn't (for each server). If you have a character on the KI server Admiral Jeff Rogers would like for you to start leveling the character up. Please e-mail him with your character's name. Changes have been made to the 'Friend or Foe' page. I have added a new 'Informatin' page. Go check it out. Please continue to send me information on your characters. Such information is: character name(s), rank, unit(s), branch, 2-3 primary skills, and server(s) you character(s) are on. Any other information you send is up to you. I can't keep the site up-to-date if you don't send me the information. All member need to be registered on the DNM Forums. Guests, friends, and allies are welcome to register as well. Officers, please remember to use our officers club. It is there for convenience of speaking with other officers/unit heads.

16 February 2003
Rules have been added. I am also working on tables for weapon and armor prices, requirements, shop sold in, and what drops them. Equipment requirements on DC changed so this will take some time to do.

13 February 2003
You can now listen to music made for Dransik. Music was made by Paavo "Tarantula" Harkonen. The music is fitting for the High Seas!

10 February 2003
The following is news from the Dransik HoC chat from irc.stratics.com:


[KA]Soul: Is the ally chat, coming soon, meaning you can speak with your allies. How will this work, and what other plusses will guilds have?
Lothgar: Yes it is. In fact I will be working on that this week. Bascially guilds with allies will have a seperate chat button. Each member can also choose to ignore or listen to Allies and their chat.

Lonric2: Previous to to this HoC, the team had mentioned implementation of a Shipping system, hows the work coming with both that and the housing/construction systems?
Lothgar: Yes, ships will be in the game once all 9 races and their lands have been completed. The construction system will be released for testing within a few weeks. We are starting with pre-fabricated construction. This will help us test player run shops and player controlled guards as well as land ownership. Full construction will start in development in the first to mid part of March.

Tisp: Will changes be made to silvrest? Many people enjoy silvrest and would like it to stay there a bit longer then level 26 in a skill.
JeffDee: Soon all 3 races will have their own starting towns. Silvest will be one of them. Instead of an entire starting island, eaqch race town will have a starting protected region around it.
JeffDee: If your new character strays near the edge of the protected area, you'll be warned. If you leave the protected region, you lose that starting protection permanently.


I have also made a few more changes to the members page.

9 February 2003
We now have an alliance with Secret Service. Please treat them with the same respect as other allies and act always with honor. I have also updated the members page.

7 February 2003
I have made it so that the Officer's Club and Forums can be opened at the same time as they now open in seperate windows. I have updated the members and unit pages.

Congratulation Admiral Gentle Touch on the setting of the date for your wedding.

5 February 2003
I have added some images to the site to give it a little more character. Information is coming in but we still need information on alot of people, keep it coming so that your character information doesn't get out-of-date. Information is to include Charcter names, servers playing on for each character, primary skills for each character, units each character is in. Be sure to visit the DNM Forums by using th elink at the bottom of the page. There is a members only section where you may find information not open to public. Officers and unit heads, be sure to get with Admirals Jeff Rogers and Gentle Touch or myself to get the password for the Officer's Club. Keep up all the good work you are all doing.

3 February 2003
The Officer's Club is back up and ready for business! We have also changed the URL to www.dransikdnm.20m.com and have NO BANNERS or POP-UPS!! If you continue to use the old URL you will still get here as it is just a redirector, however you will get pop-ups if you use that URL. More member information has been updated, as well as a friend or foe page has been added. Keep the suggestions and information coming. As you can see many people have not yet sent in their character information. I need to know servers and units your characters are in.

Congratulations to those who received promotions earlier today. I have updated the members page to show those promotions.

30 January 2003
Please be sure to register on the forums. Important information can be found there. Also, I need for everyone to send me an e-mail notifying me of which server(s) you play on. Without the information I cannot make the list accurate. The 'DNM Private Messages' link is now the 'Officer's Club' link. The password for the Forum will be given out to Officers and Unit leader's upon discresion of Admirals Jeff Rogers and Gentle Touch.

28 January 2003
I would like to thank Caesir, Jeff Rogers, Gentle Touch, Sindrel, and Sharlath for there contributions and suggestions for the site.

27 January 2003
I am changing the forums. I would normally send out e-mails for a vote about this type of thing but I'm sure which way it would go. Check the forums and you will see what I am talking about. Need more input from members on site. If you want to see something the only way to get it is to let me know.

21 January 2003
I am having troubles with a couple files that contain text as well as images. I'll get it up this afternoon.~Barazaph

20 January 2003
Caesir and I got the files reformatted and I got most of them up. I'm going to take a little break to play some Dransik now. I'll get the rest up tonight.

19 January 2003
I had planned on adding the rank, unit, and MIA lists tonight but I am having difficulties with the files. I will get them up tomorrow instead.It looks like I'll be adding new pages soon as the information keeps coming to me. I added a few images I thought might make it feel a little more like home to the Sailors among us. I have received some positive feedback and a few suggestions. Thank you for your support and ideas coming my way. I will try to make this the best site I can.

17 January 2003
Uniforms page is up. If you have questions about what uniform to wear to meetings check the page or seek out Fleet Admirals Jeff Rogers and Gentle Touch. Also, Fleet Admiral Jeff Roger's as well as the Marine Commandant's Log Books are up. If you haven't received the password for the forums please e-mail me. More to come soon.

16 January 2003
The site is being worked on. I will be working on it quite a bit over the next couple days trying to get it done. I will keep news right here every time I make changes to the site and whenever something happens with the guild. Jeff Rogers and Gentle Touch will very soon have access to edit this site too. I hope you like the site!!

Any ideas or comments please e-mail us by using the links just to the left.

We understand that there are times that you must loot someone in order to regain your equipment or that of someone else's. In this case, you should only loot the equipment that belongs to you or the other person and everything else in the person's pack except for the following. (The person's weapon and main armor) This should not be difficult with the new rules that apply when you die now in Dransik.

There will be absolutely NO PKing. This will not be tolerated in DNM, there are times when you must PK to stop someone from being PKed by known looters but this should not be done so that it becomes a habit or considered harassment. Please check with leader or your higher-ranking officer before acting.

No elaboration needed.

4. No telling non-guild members guild information.
This is a strict rule and will not be tolerated, slips of the tongue are grounds for dismissal from the guild.

5. Weekly meetings with Guild leader and Captains, Bi-weekly meeting with entire guild.
Missing two meetings in a row is grounds for punishment. Punishment and can include reduction in rank or dismissal from the guild.

6. No Vulturing

7. Sextant must be carried at ALL times

8. No sharing account or character.

9. No macroing of any form.

If you are interested in joining, find members in game and talk to them, become friends with them. For the only way to join the ranks of the Dransik Navy & Marines is by invitation. When you receive an invitation the member will tell you how to receive an application. When you complete the application an interview will be set up. Questions concerning your application will be asked as well as many other questions at this interview. If you make it through the interview then the members of the guild will have 1 week to vote yes/no on your membership (thus making time you spend making friends in the guild very important). When the week is up you will receive an e-mail notifying you of your membership status.

Once in the guild don't forget to salute senior officers everytime you see them (if they leave your sight and come back you must salute again).

Hard work and much dedication will gain you rank. Hope to see you with the DNM tag soon!!

Join us in the game Dransik!!

Join us in IRC in channel #dransikdnm on irc.stratics.com.


Special thanks to Paavo 'Taranula' Harkonen for the Pirates song made for Ashen Empires on this site.
