Tonight, all servers will be having server maintenance.

Expected Schedule:

All Servers Down: 11 pm PDT

All Servers Up: 2 am PDT

What time is that in your time zone?

Tonight's discussion topic is...

ART!

Art shapes how we see the world and can influence how we feel. It is a powerful tool that has been used for ages to convey what words could not. Ultimately, it is up to the individual to decide what is art, and what feelings it evokes.

Who is your favorite artist? They can be a master of any medium, just keep it within the Rules of Conduct!

This is a really tough one, but I'll have to go with Rothko. Standing before one of his pieces is an experience of its own, and really transforms how you view the piece. It's very meditative.

At first, it seems like something anyone could do, but once you see it in person that doesn't matter.

A close second would be yoshitaka amano, for what he did with The Dream Hunters.

Who is your favorite?

    I adore Yoshitaka Amano, outside of the obvious ties he has to another video game, his work from Dream Hunters and Vampire Hunter D are my favorite. I have quite a few of his art books here at my place, even his book Deva Zan

    I'm a big fan of Elizabeth Peyton. Her painting style is similar to my own so it's inspiring to view her work. For one of my classes I did research on her and part of that project involved re-creating some of her paintings. Loved doing that. Example of her work.

    Great, totally different from what our "new" German CM had told us two days ago. Now I am really confused. Mel any chance you know something about the new pvpve instance being fixed for Dyos Server with this weeks patch? It hasn't been working since the content patch (only the dwarf mines instance is playable for us).

    I checked with the team, and this should indeed be fixed. These notes don't include changes that are specific to Dyos, Shylia, and Milas, which is why this fix was not included. Sorry for the confusion!

    Can you try using the verify option on the launcher? That may help resolve this issue.

    I'll let the team know that this is still happening, but you may want to try installing the patches manually. You can find them here.
