The Past 12 Months
January 18 - Life Forge
In light of the changes that have been made within the past year, the Life Forge team is happy to announce that we've completed our checklist. Now that we've caught up with all previous roadmap / announced ideas, We've opened up a new realm of possibilities for Life Forge!
With that said, we'd love to invite you all to view our roadmap for the following month.

1: PVP Volcanic island with various high end resources allowing players to literally fight there way to the top!
2: Flushed out content from the beginning of the game. We're looking to further the experience at the beginning of the game, seeing as we've mainly focused on end game content. Expect flushed out content in area's between the levels of 1-30.
3: More raids and dungeons are coming! Look forward to delving into the depths of the sea, as well as the innards of a active Volcano!
4: Quests Galore! Expect a huge increase in quests, including a massive quest line that will bring the world of Life Forge together!

Christmas Event & Information!
December 16, 2017 - Life Forge
Father Christmas has been kidnapped and is been held by people on the Naughty List. Who will be able to save Father Christmas? Presents and Tree's have begun to appear across the lands to make it feel more Christmassy whilst you try and save Christmas Day!

"Father Christmas Rescue" where you will earn tokens to spend in the Christmas Shop on what ever you desire. This allows people to play and earn what they want, rather than force items on people. I hope to see everyone on and helping rescue Father Christmas!

To celebrate Christmas, All purchases will get an extra +15%. This mean when buying Platinum you will get (rounded UP) :

50 Plat > 58 Plat,
110 Plat > 127 Plat,
250 Plat > 288 Plat,
500 Plat > 575 Plat.

The Christmas Shop will be coming very soon which will include Furniture, Mounts, and Christmassy Cosmetics (Some [L] Limited items too!)

The above Platinum offer ends December 26th.
