“We are all students, from our first breath to our last. Imagine- the darkness which must surround those who have closed their minds!” Thoromind, Retired Archmage

The World of Arelith is a vast and ever changing landscape. The player's handbook is designed as a reference for new and veteran players alike to bring out the most enjoyable experience here.



Every great tale must one day come to an end to make way for new glorious stories. In the spirit of keeping the server and storylines dynamic, Arelith offers an 'Epic Character Retirement Program”.

You may, at your option, permanently retire (vault deletion) any character level 25 or above for a 5% chance of earning a custom skin or unique item for your next character.

To make arrangements for the 5% roll, contact Jjjerm and include your gamespy login, the name of the character you wish to retire and your request.

You may choose a non-standard skin, a custom alteration (such as wings or a tail) or request a unique item to be designed by the DM team. Please outline the concept for your new character in your request, and Jjjerm will get back to you to schedule the roll.

Please note- even if you do not succeed at the roll, the character will be removed from your vault. All requests are subject to approval from Jjjerm and the Dev team.

If you find an error or ommission, please send a forum PM to Jess or e-mail kallisti(at)live.com. Thanks!
