The Nhur Athemon Sequence

Bob
The Nhur Athemon Sequence will be launched in all standard monster hexes (not the home hexes or the two "tutorial" monster hexes in -12,18 and 0,3) at 10 AM Pacific (or shortly after Daily Maintenance) on Thursday, December 20. That sequence will run through all of the currently available escalations in ascending order of difficulty, with a ten minute delay between escalations, culminating in a new escalation that is both more difficult and more rewarding than all the previous escalations.

Each settlement has a nearby hex assigned to it, listed below. Prizes will be awarded for the first, second and third settlements to complete the sequence in their assigned hex:

  • First Place: Ownership of Marketstead, Keep Structure Kit +0/1, choice of 7 structure kit sets (no keep, at most 1 large and 2 mediums, 1 set at +0-5, 1 set at +0-4, 1 set at +0-3, 2 sets at +0-2, 2 sets at +0-1), 1 structure kit recipe for each chosen set, 1000 of each bulk resource, 10 gold coins, choice of 10 recipes (at most 2 Tier 3 and 3 Tier 2), and choice of 10 standard raw ingredients (100 each, at most 2 Tier 3 and 3 Tier 2, no Aeon Stones or Victory Markers or other specialty ingredients, the new enchanting raw ingredients are fine, gatherable or salvage items are fine).
  • Second Place: Choice of 5 structure kit sets (no keep, at most 1 large and 2 mediums, 1 set at +0-4, 1 set at +0-3, 1 set at +0-2, 2 sets at +0-1), 1 structure kit recipe for each chosen set, 500 of each bulk resource, 5 gold coins, choice of 7 recipes (at most 1 Tier 3 and 2 Tier 2), and choice of 7 standard raw ingredients (50 each, at most 1 Tier 3 and 2 Tier 2, see restrictions from First Place prize).
  • Third Place: Choice of 3 structure kit sets (no large/keep and at most 1 medium, 1 set at +0-3, 1 set at +0-2, 1 set at +0-1), 1 structure kit recipe for each chosen set, 250 of each bulk resource, 3 gold coins, choice of 5 recipes (at most 1 Tier 3 and 1 Tier 2), and choice of 5 standard raw ingredients (25 each, at most 1 Tier 3 and 1 Tier 2, see restrictions from First Place prize).

In addition, we'll check every settlement's progress right after Daily Maintenance on Monday, January 7 and award prizes based on how far each settlement gets through the sequence in their assigned hex. Any settlement that completes the sequence by that date will receive a free copy of a new recipe for a spellcrafting structure we'll be adding soon, along with a +0 kit for that structure. We'll be moving enchanting off the iconographer and artificer buildings sometime after that structure becomes available, so that will be a very useful building to have, though spellcrafting will remain on the spellwright structure as well. In addition, every sequence escalation completed by that date will count as 1 point toward your choice of recipes (Tier 3 recipes cost 10 points, Tier 2 recipes cost 3 points, Tier 1 recipes cost 1 point).

For all prizes, final decisions on the reasonableness of any choices will be at Paizo's discretion. If you have any questions about what might be considered reasonable or unreasonable, particularly if there are things you think might meet the descriptions above but seem overly valuable compared to what was likely intended, please ask those questions now.

Finally, when together you manage to complete every Nhur Athemon Sequence across the map, you'll unlock the new escalation as part of the standard rotation, though at a slightly lower frequency than any of the other high-level escalations. That means clearing it from both the assigned and unassigned monster hexes, 46 sequences in all.

Here are the hexes assigned to each settlement:

  • Alderwag: -13,-6
  • Aragon: -2,2
  • Blackwood Glade: -2,14
  • Brighthaven: 6,13
  • Caer Coedwig: -11,-4
  • Callambea: -10,0
  • Canis Castrum: -14,11
  • Carpe Noctem: -1,4
  • Concordia: -4,5
  • Corbenik: -15,4
  • Dun Baile: -11,4
  • Emerald Lodge: -5,10
  • Forgeholm: 3,-2
  • Fort Ouroboros: -18,20
  • Golgotha: -5,7
  • Greystone Keep: -7,19
  • Hammerfall: -2,11
  • High Road: -20,1

  • Veggr Tor: -14,1

Settlement leaders, contact customer.support@pathfinderonline.com if you'd like to select a different unassigned hex, or to trade with another interested settlement, and we'll see what we can work out.

Happy adventuring!

I was wondering what the holiday extravaganza for this year was. Interesting prize. Can we get a hint of what the new escalation is?

Also, will the Monster Raid mechanics be turned off for this special event time period? It will be harsh my mellow if on top of trying to fight through this event, that this event's escalations are raiding our holdings at the same time.

Competition instead of cooperation this year hey? Interesting…

Also, I say leave the raid mechanic on - meaningful choices and all smile

Well, there's a pretty big hint in the name of this thread.

Sorry, they won't be turned off. All the more reason to take these down quickly. At least you only have to worry about the raids on your PvP days.

Well this reads almost like a dangerous affliction of some kind. I hope that lots show up for the mayhem. smile

Arrrrgh! I really, really wished they could have gotten their act together and connected the optic fibre this year, so I could have joined the fun. This morning I desynced and died to goblins of all things … and the occational lag makes even bandit hunting unnecessary exciting dometimes.

</venting>

The escalation raiding holdings? That is something I missed. Do those happens on a schedule? That is perhaps something I join in, helping the defence, dropping slowing arrows from safe distance…

@ Bob

Hey Bob! Considering that this is playing out into the holidays and the low (current) level of players, would you consider extending the "team divisions" to Settlement Alliance size rather than individual Settlement teams?
