Hey Guys,

Soon we will be revealing a large scale event that will reveal the old gods of the First and Second ages,

These gods will become available to select for worship via the Shard store if you so choose, we have created something amazing that includes depictions of the gods themselves.

Whilst i am purposely being vague on the details, this is so the experience isn't ruined.

The event itself for sign up will be posted this coming week!

Hey Guys

The Thylacoleo is to be unlocked as a tamable creature for the server soon, This is due to the efforts of you, the players

In character an archivist will need to send letters to all settlements in Andorra before the knowledge is spread enough for them to become tamable. This will happen soon.

Hopefully we will see more lovely creatures becoming available

If you're new to research, here are some fantastic examples.

Cheers!

Hey Guys

In light of the server having low population, in order to help it Survive, i will allow everyone who wishes to help run a large scale recruitment drive to bring some new blood in.

If you have facebook, please share this post here

Reddit is also a pretty good place to get good players!

Please make sure you post the Below:

Survive Stormont is an RPVPVE Ark: Survival Evolved server based on the Xbox One/Cross Play located within Europe, however, all regions are welcome! We are dedicated to organizing a community of fellow Roleplayers who wish to contribute as actively as they can to the overall feeling of immersion in the story we have created. We strive for an open, pleasant, and fun atmosphere within the server and we welcome players from all experience levels who will add to this and embrace the tone we already have. We are unlike any other server with our detailed and professional website and our Custom Research and Class Systems.

Please only apply if you are a Roleplayer or are interested in learning to Roleplay

www.SurviveStormont.com

(Please post the below pictures along with the add)


Hey Guys

I wish i could come with better news but, here goes:

It's no secret that Stormont's player volume has completely dropped of, this usually happens towards the end of an Age, not early within it.

With that being said, Stormont cost alot of Work, Money and Time to run.

We have a large community of you who don't seem to be playing.

whether that be burnout with ark, or you're not sure where to take your character progression, it happens.

As you are all aware Ember Development is going well, very well actually. But i'll get to the point...

If people are no longer playing Stormont, i will take the money, time and resources it takes to run it...and put them towards the development of Ember.

Ember Development is a hundred times more costly than Stormont, and if Stormont is not being utilised. it will close.



This can be prevented, if the whole community work together to bring the server upto shape.

Cheers 

Hey everyone! You can find the Sixth episode of The Age of Heroes

here!

Enjoy!

So there was quite a heated discussion whilst i was away. I thought i would address it here where it won't get lost in the labyrinth of Discord.

Mormont was kind enough to list these into categorys i can respond to, so i will do that, although the answers may not be the ones you want to hear.

Class system

 Everybody was informed and made aware that there is an issue with the Ark Mechanic preventing us from going forward, this is a technicial issue and we have raised tickets with both Studio Wildcard and Nitrado for help.

Grey area

I will need more details on exactly what anyone means by grey area, unless it's a grey area between roleplaying classes, which would be caused by the above issue,therefore the solution is what we are waiting for.

Gather rates

These will not be changing, if you were going to fully roleplay it, you wouldn't be able to carry more than a few peices of wood at a time, The gather rates are fine as they are, and have been that way for 3 years.

there are thousands of servers with 10x everything, we are not nor ever will be that kind of server.

Research System

We had staffing issues with the research system, hence the very slow progression, vacancys were advertised on in several news post. I have however updated it to make it much simpler here




On the subject of research, i noticed alot of you were angry about the research you had submitted not being scored much, a few points really...

- Before causing a huge debate, maybe consider that the research has not been fully marked yet and is in progress.

- Always ask a member of staff before you complain publicly about something, you've clearly gotten wrong.

- Unless there is a news article or big announcement, do NOT assume anything.

- my scores listed are me keeping track, not your final score

IMPORTANT 

>> I had not applied any bonus's at the time of the debate. <<

I'd appreciate it if you allowed me to finish going through the backlog before you all jumped on the attack bandwagon.

Money is an issue

Would need more details on this, the same people who seem to say money is an issue also happen to be some of the richest people on the server, remember: shards and sterling and interchangable for a reason. Since allowing new players to apply directly to settlements new players now recieve 50 sterling, not 10.

Natural roleplay

Natural roleplay is great, need more detail.

Events

We are having staffing issues, staff roles have been advertised. but whilst i am forced to take more and more on, there will be less and less events.

Admins spawning stuff in

You can see what is spawned in on the rules 

you checked the little box on your application stating:

 "I agree to follow the rules that have been set in place by the server admins"

If you have suddenly decided that you no longer agree, you are not forced to be here against your own will.

Blueprints not handed out



Please see the first entry "Class System" pretty self explanitory, everything was explained in great detail to everyone from Grognak

Admin communication

I am going to need specific examples for this, we provide news and updates both on the website and discord every single time there is one, when we have technical issues, we alert everyone (like the class system)

when i am short on staff and need help to make things run, I alert everyone (vacancys are posted)

Communcation works both ways, in tonights event not ONE player asked if those research numbers were final before complaining about it.


People complaining an Admin or Staff doesn't respond to DM's. it's been said time and time again that if you need help. use the channels provided. We have an entire "Stormont help center" for that very specific purpose. we get hundreds of DM's, use the system we put in place for you. 



With all this being said i would like to announce there will not be a Survive Stormont: Fourth Age, you've pretty much kicked the will to do it out of me.

We have a small team of already over stretched and burnt out staff, Be careful how far you push us. Pretty safe to say i am pretty damn dissapointed in this community for it's inability to be patient so one guy can try to fix things out of his control.

Hey Guys

The Mammoth is to be unlocked as a tamable creature for the server soon, This is due to the efforts of you, the players...or in this case, Vinterheim

We are looking for a player to fill the role of: Research Archivist Of North Haven

Players from all corners of the server will come to you to bring their research, you will purchase this from them.

It will be your job to sort & organise research into a library.

When a significant amount of research on a creature has been submitted, you will proceed to invite players to meetings in order to share research knowledge.

Our research system has unfortunately faltered due to research staff inactivity, The successful applicant will be given full staff privilidges if they help us get the research system back into shape.

This role requires you to use the Website & Discord heavily as well as consistant communication with Admins.


If you are interested in the role please comment below, I will set up interviews in discord with all applicants.

[Dwarf] Ulfgar Battlehammer - Vinterheim I have some ideas and thoughts I would like to discuss with you. Perhaps tomorrow (Sunday) or something when you aren&rs...
[Sylvan] Maester Mormont-North Haven I possibly would have if i didn't have to stay in North Haven

Hey Guys

The Primary elections have begun.

Due to every eligable settlement Choosing Raen Azar as their first choice;

we will run a primary election between the runners up, the winner of the primarys will go against Raen in the final.

The runners up are Baldur Grimm Orrin Sparr

Hey Guys,

We will soon have starter packs for those who wish to move into Aserah Path

We would like to populate the sides of the road to create a micro-economy and community feel, and the roleplay that will bring.

We will also be contact a few of you to open some shops there, we will provide seperate assistance for this.

If you would like to express interest in this, there are a few requirements:



I: Must not be on probation (must be proven as a good roleplayer) This is due to Aserah path being somewhere new players travel through, they get their first impressions of the server and community there.

II: Must not be a resident of another settlement, if Aserah Path is going to be populated, people having secondary homes there will not ensure that (This does not apply to shops)

III: Must not build huge buildings around the path, a few nice buildings is fine.

IV: Aserah Path is under the jurisdiction of North Haven, you would be joining the North Haven Settlement, meaning you would have a Kiánard. 

V: Assist in keeping the path safe, it also helps to have a good trespasser policy ;)



If you have not already expressed your interest, please do so below!

Cheers!

[Nord] Fenrir I would like to open a stall on the path
Malthric Briarbeard x I still intend to run my saddlesmith shop from Aserah Path.
Orrin Sparr- Illiera Smithing Wo I would like to open a blacksmith shop on the toad

Hey Guys,

Unfortunately we are having a few technical issues implementing the new class system,

and it's going to take a little longer than expected

We will not resume implementing the new class system until the 12th however;

we don't want to prevent you from playing on the server

there are however a few things that need to happen;

Throw out ALL your blueprints, Admins will be going around making sure they are disposed of.

please do try and roleplay your class as best possible until the 12th.

we will then have another brief recess and we will then host a job fair type event at north haven

where people will be given a 1 off oppertunity to choose a new class

new blueprint packs will be given out for the new class system, they are different from the previous system (this is why you must dispose of your current blueprints)

The Server will resume,

Right now please focus on the Election for Kiánard of North Haven

Once all nominations have been recieved, we will begin voting.

Cheers!

The Fourth Episode of the Second Age Narrative; "The Age of Heroes" is finally up and available for you all to read and enjoy!

Find it here!

Thanks :)

Hey Guys, 

So today is an important day on the Server, It's election time:



North Haven is the Capital of Andorra, it holds all the knowledge and research that progress Andorra forward.

It also Houses the new Garda Alliance Headquarters, Library of Babel, The Great Library aswell as soon, the Central bank, This makes it a very important place, we will be bringing all of those things back inhouse to North Haven.

we are in the process of repopulating North Haven with citizens now that the Old Garda are no more.

So Why an election?

We will allow all settlements in the Garda Alliance to put forward their nomination for Kiánard.

The nominee does not have to be a citizen of that settlement, just someone they wish to put forward who they believe represents their best interest.

Nominees must accept their nomination, if they do not, put forward another candidate

We require Nominations from the following settlements



Eilean Gealach - Nominate Raen Azar

Daldinia - Nominate Raen Azar

Vinterheim

Everyone in Andorra has the right to vote in this Election.

This will be done via poll soon.

I also require the Settlements of Eilean Gealach, Daldinia and Vinterheim to appoint a Guardian who is to guide and monitor the new elected Kiánard, to ensure there is no corruption or abuse of power.

[Sylvan] Keelan - Hiraeth Farm a If you guys would read the news post, it's the settlements that put forward nominations.
Malthric Briarbeard x I, Master Dwarf, Nominate Bran Ericson of Vinterheim.

Hey Guys,

Just a heads up. 

I am going to be temporarily shut down Survive Stormont at 00:00 (GMT) on the 6th of September.

The recess will be for a few days, we will try and get it wrapped up sooner than later.

I will be performing maintenance aswell as introducing server improvements, we will look at implementing a new class system (this is a huge task, please bare with us)

I am currently not happy with the state of the server as it is, it needs improving.

There will also be some changes to the Staff of Survive Stormont, we have had a few Staffing issues of late and i wish to see that fixed.

We will be quite heavily posting on here and the discord during this time.

Please allow the time to take a little break from ark, things will be better on return!

Cheers! M

[Nord] Fenrir Thank Christ my character is going to his home place
