Below you will find the development updates as of today 05/18/2018 and will be deployed tonight at approx 10 PM EST.
Thank you all for your patience. We know you all are very excited to see the startup of the new "Finvarra's Fortress" server and for the new life that has been given to "Despothes' Grove". We have been receiving a lot of feedback about the state of the Despothes' Grove's economy and we've heard you. We've decided to incorporate a gold sink into Despothes' Grove with a new item that will be available 05/27/2018, this item will cost 125,000,000 gold. This cost was calculated based on the average gold per character in the game. This item when used will reserve the consuming characters name forever on all servers. That means the only account that will ever be able to create that name again will be the one that character logged on when it uses the consumable.
We've received some information that players are attempting to receive support for The Realm from an unofficial "The Realm Online" Facebook group and that they're being told that the Norseman Games with whom they're doing business is a fraud. Let me address a few things here:

Hello Realmers! We've been working on bringing features forward from MW progressively over the past few weeks and we have a content patch ready to share with many of those changes. Expect changes to increase in frequency as we move toward our June 1st launch for Finvarra's Fortress.
Without further ado, here are the latest changes:
As always, we'd love to hear your feedback on the above changes after you've tested them!
This week has been pretty busy on some behind the scenes work that doesn't correlate to a lot of excitement for you all, but it does help to develop a stronger foundation for the product that we are planning to deliver to you. We've made some progress on some things like name reservations (yep we think we have a plan for this now), updating world files to bring back the nostalgic layout of the towns, and a whole new magic item progression system. There will be more on this in the next couple of weeks but for now our number one priority is to get the old town layouts back, add in the existing heroic dungeons, and completing the name reservation system.
