Game Update July 2023


Today we release three new exciting aspects for A Tempest Season!

  1.  The class Lunar Sages! A new class which embraces the moons of Amor and Honestus! You can read more about them here:
  2. Lunarian Alve, a race of beings from Amor and maybe Honestus! You can read more about them here:
  3. The class Solar Magus! A new class which worships the goddess Lumiaris, Goddess of Day from the 2nd Age! The counterpart to Zuloruk, the God of Night from the 2nd Age! This Class wields a mace and summons down blazing power from the sun and Lumiaris herself! Additionally, they can create a Burning Sun Throne and usher in powerful decrees during combat! They have large egos, and certainly, do not take no for an answer! You can read more about them here:

A few quick notes!

For the Solar Magus, Chat GPT was integrated into the game as a test to see how easy it is to help make abilities. This involved lots of coding up brand new parts of the game plus changing others. The class also uses the new Damage Tier System, so their numbers may be odd, as well as delay, reuse, and ability costs.

As you can see, the speed at which the Lunar Sage was created vs the Solar Magus is pretty impressive! I created the code updates for Chat GPT and the class itself in shorter time than the design phase of Lunar Sages!

Having said that, there has been LOTS of change to make these 3 additions happen. There will be bugs! And issues! And balance issues! Please report them on the forums in the bug section and we will fix them.

Thank you for playing and enjoy!

We’re Open for Beta Testing!




Actinate and myself are pleased to inform you that A Tempest Season is open for beta testing. We’ve worked intensively over the past 7 months to bring the game to you. It’s been a lot of work but also a lot of fun. We invite you to all give the game a try out and begin a new (or resume) a journey in Eihydia!

While the game is open and playable from levels 1 to 100, we are in open beta testing which means there will be issues and room for improvement. Please feel free to make suggestions or report bugs to us on our forums.

Thank you for all your support and dedication. We look forward to seeing you in the game!


Thanks,Dayrinni and Actinate

Beta Opening July 6th


door_opening-85Hello all!

Previously, Actinate and I were aiming for a July 1st opening date where Open Beta testing would begin. Unfortunately, we are going to have to push it back a bit to July 6th instead. We need some more time to finish up a few last areas around Tralisia.

Thanks and hope to see you soon!

New Horizons – Humble Beginnings

Hello everyone!!!

For those of you experienced with A Tempest Season’s early incarnations, welcome back! For those of you just tuning in, we hope you’ll enjoy your stay with us and have as much fun playing ATS as we had creating it.

I remember my first experience with a RPG. I was pretty young, and I was begging a friend’s older brother to let us play Dungeons and Dragons. After many temper tantrums, name calling and overall diaper pooping, I was allowed to join in on the festivities.

I don’t have all the details, but I remember being shuffled through a quick character creation process and immediately came face-to-face with a red dragon; it promptly took a flaming dump on my face.

I was dead…

I left the game pretty irritated and thinking that it would be much better to make my own game, one where other people could play and have fun. Dayrinni and I talked about the idea and began building a fantasy world with simple (and broken) mechanics that were similar to video games we’d played, movies we’d watched and things we thought would be cool to see in action.

Needless to say, those early incarnations were VERY bad in terms of design and mechanics, but the seed was planted and the framework was built. All it needed was a little love and care, and after twenty-five years of friendship, Dayrinni and I are still working on that process.

ATS started as a game called “The World of Gaia.” Later, it evolved into “Magical Seasons” and finally “A Tempest Season.” The game had a failed sequel, “Shattered Ages,” which introduced isometric art and a visual world to explore. It was a neat endeavor, but it was very time consuming. Both Dayrinni and I learned a lot from our failed experience with “Shattered Ages” and our experience with “A Tempest Season,” the first time it was in MUD format. We’re hoping to take what we’ve learned and apply it to this new incarnation of ATS to make a richer and more entertaining experience.

We encourage you to please visit our forums to help us build a community of gamers, and we implore you to read the lore on our website, which is in the process of being updated.

Ultimately, we want you to have a good experience, and we want you to have fun. So come join us this July as we re-explore the world of Eihydia! See you there!!!
