Welcome to the Ashlands!
It has begun: a raiding party has sacked Port Tyras, and it has become abundantly clear that a force not native to Gielinor has taken hold of territories further west. The Queen of Ashes has arrived, and she intends to spread her influence towards the main continent. There is only one option left, and that is facing the threat head-on! Travel further West than anyone has done before and rise up to the challenge!
Aims of this suggestion
Provide more hybrid combat incentive
Provide a hardcore survival environment, favouring skill over grind
Providing alternate sources of high tier ores
Summary of the idea
You can launch an expedition to the Ashlands (new western continent, NOT Zeah!) on your own or with friends. The Ashlands are separated into distinct zones, each ramping up in difficulty in comparison with the one before.
- Zone I: Open sea
- Zone II: Archipelago
- Zone III: Mainland
- Zone IV: Mountains
- Zone V: True Ashlands
An expedition entails visiting your target zone while travelling through the zones before it and back again, surviving everything that gets thrown at you. Each zone contains loot unique to that specific zone, making sure that an expedition to any zone remains useful. This setup makes it progressively harder to get to a ‘higher’ zone, meaning that the general utility of rewards from higher zones is higher.
One of the main features is surviving on a foreign continent using only what you’ve taken with you. At every moment in the Ashlands you have to take in account the following in addition to regular damage:
- Body temperature
If any of the relevant values hits 0 you’re dead. Dying is NOT safe in the Ashlands, and you’ll never retain any Ashland-related items which have not been on the main continent before to ensure you cannot smuggle any items out using death. Furthermore any type of remote banking is forbidden.
