    Earlier today, TalonRO faced an unanticipated outage with our host beyond our control. This has prompted us to perform urgent maintenance to switch to a new host immediately so as to bring TalonRO back online as fast and securely as possible. We sincerely apologize for this most unanticipated problem with our host. However, as we feel that our host can no longer provide a stable, secure connection in light of today's events - our best course of action is to begin this switch immediately. We are confident this is the best and most secure course of action, and we will be working around-the-clock to restore service. Please also rest assured that all player data is completely secured, backed-up, and no data have been lost in this outage. Due to the interruption of service, we are happy to announce two compensatory features which will be in place when we resume normal service tomorrow: We will be offering 12x EXP rates for the remainder of the week, starting when the server is back online and ending on Sunday, March 20th. We will be extending the 9th Anniversary Costume giveaway another day for all players, so that you may have an opportunity to claim this free and exclusive costume. In the meanwhile, we encourage you to drop by our Discord channel to chat with other Talonians, or leave us a RateMyServer view that you've been meaning to write! We're working hard to restore service as quickly and securely as possible, so thank you for your patience. 10:18am update Quick update. Last night when the network trouble started, we pretty much immediately ordered 4 (four) new high-end servers. These machines are yet another upgrade to the already fast systems that we have on our current host; they're crazy powerful. Overnight these servers were set up by our host so that we now have access to them. What we're doing right now is configuring all of these servers and to get them ready for usage. Once everything is installed, secured and stable, we will be moving over everything, such as the gameserver database, the webserver data, downloads, et cetera. That's all we can tell you for now

    Dear Talonians, A number of recent attempts have been made in-game to impersonate Game Master staff aimed at scamming players through fraud. These attempts may include: receiving PMs from GM impersonators, fraudulent Skype names, and chat rooms where a player structures a chat room to make it look as though a GM is in the chat as well. To protect yourself against these actions, we would like to remind all players of the following important account safety notifications: GMs will never, at any time, ask you for your password or other sensitive account information in-game. The only secure transmission with GM staff is through a Support Ticket, TalonRO's forum and related media, and in-game using !request. GMs will never, at any time, ask you to pay money to be on the GM staff nor will they contact you on official business through outside media unaffiliated with TalonRO, such as Skype or other non-TalonRO chat programs. Chat rooms always list the players who are inside; no one can ever be "invisible" inside of a chat room. GMs always have several layers of key identifying features to validate their staff identify: GMs have the characters "GM" in front of their names (e.g.: GM Boreas; GM Howl) GMs wear official Game Master staff clothing in-game, which is easily identifiable. GMs have their character names shown in yellow text, and speak in orange text when seeing them in-game. GMs are all able to respond to the !request command; when in doubt, use !request to send a message to all online GMs. GMs are all part of the "Tech_Assist" guild and will never appear in-game without being in this guild. Furthermore, we highly recommend that all players follow the below account safety precautions at all times: Never give out your account details to anyone for any reason. We highly discourage account sharing, as this opens your account to lots of potential vulnerabilities. This includes sharing in-game logins and forum account logins. If you suspect any player of impersonating a GM, please contact the Game Master staff immediately through a Support Ticket, a report filed into our General Reports subforum, or to any online GMs using !request. Any attempts by players to impersonate GM staff at any time for any reason will be sanctioned with a full ban from TalonRO. We consistently monitor the safety and security of your account at all times - and together we can keep the community safe and your gaming experience great. Thank you for your time and, as always, Happy Gaming.

    Hello! I'm toneru and I'm a full time freelance artist (and hopefully a comic artist soon)! I just wanted to have a place where I can show my art to my fellow TRO players so here I am! At the moment I do not offer commissions as I do not have the time to do them. However, this place will also serve as my art shop thing once I do decide to offer my skills in exchange for TRO currency. My posts might be a bit image heavy so I've decided to put them in spoilers. Find my other art here! Tumblr ✦ Facebook ✦ Twitter ✦ Instagram ✦ Youtube ✦ deviantArt Now for the actual art~ I'm currently really into My Hero Academia so I've been drawing each character these days. But today I drew my best boy, Tokoyami! I kinda regret not drawing Dark Shadow. Thanks for checking out my stuff!

    With fresh snow falling in Lutie and caroling voices lingering, silver bells and visions of sugar plums dance in Talonian's heads. With dreams of gifts sitting underneath the Yggdrasil Tree, the joyous people of Midgard eagerly await Christmas Day! In observing the generous spirit of the holidays, we're pleased to offer a new and innovative way of sharing Christmas cheer with your friends and fellow Talonians with our first-ever Secret Santa Gift Exchange! This year's exchange is simple: visit with the Secret Santa NPC in Lutie, where you'll be allowed to pack up one (1) special gift exchange box with an item from your inventory. Your gift will be given at random to another Talonian who is participating in the gift exchange - which is a wonderful way to make new friends, too! If you give a gift, you'll get a gift. You may only pack a single item type from the pre-approved list below. Each item type carries a minimum quantity - for example, you can choose to pack a minimum of 1 Buckler [1] or 90 Oridecon - but each item has an approximate equivalent Zeny value. You're welcome to give more than the minimum, of course - but you can only give one item type in total, so choose wisely! You must have the item you wish to give in your inventory, so make sure that you have it with you when visiting with the Secret Santa helper! After packing your gift box with your selected gift from your inventory, you can write a gift message inside! You'll be able to write up to four (4) lines of text as a special holiday message. Please note of course: inappropriate messages will not be tolerated and may lead to action taken against your account. When done, your box will be packed and added to the exchange! You can only perform this on one character on your forum account, and all gifts will be distributed at random shortly after Christmas. When Santa's elves have exchanged your gifts after Christmas, be sure to check your in-game mail box on your character, where a special Secret Santa gift and note will be waiting your arrival from a random Talonian. Below are the list and quantities of pre-approved items which are available to pack into your gift exchange box: Quantity Item Name 1 Angel Wing Ears[0] 3 Bearfoot Special [str+8] 1 Bloody Branch 200 Blue Herb 1 Buckler[1] 1 Chef Hat 2 Chiqita's Jewelry Box 75 Crystal Arrow Quiver 100 Crystal Fragment 50 Dead Branch 1 Dragon Breath Cocktail [int+10] 40 Elunium 6 Embryo 1 Evil Wing Ear[0] 1 Expert Ring[1] 1 Formal Suit[1] 60 Glistening Coat 12 Green Salad [dex+5] 1 Guard[1] 1 Handmade Chocolate 2 Hwergelmir's Tonic [dex+10] 7 Immaterial Arrow Quiver 400 Immortal Heart 15 Karvodailnirol 15 Mastela Fruit Wine [int+5] 1 Muffler[1] 15 Old Blue Box 1 Old Card Album 7 Old Purple Box 90 Oridecon 1 Panda Hat 1 Perfect Blue Gem 1 Perfect Green Gem 1 Perfect Red Gem 1 Perfect Yellow Gem 200 Piece of Cake 9 Poison Bottle 3 Royal Family Tea [int+8] 100 Shadow Arrow Quiver 1 Shoes[1] 1 Silver Guard[1] 3 Special Toast [dex+8] 15 Speed Potion 2 Steamed Tongue [str+10] 50 Stone Arrow Quiver 175 Strawberry 1 Talon Coin 1 Teddy Bear Hat 1 Tidal Shoes[1] 35 Wind Arrow Quiver 500 Witch Starsand 1 Wool Scarf[1] 20 Ygg Berry 50 Ygg Seed Lastly - be sure to act fast: our Secret Santa Gift Exchange is running now through noon on Christmas Eve (December 24th) server time! We hope that you'll consider making a new friend this holiday season - and who knows what fun item you'll receive in exchange! There's only one way to find out. Merry Christmas, and Happy Gaming!

    To be honest, due to the server switch and work on the new website I simply forgot about our anniversary. The costume was merely a try to implement a way of appreciation on the fly. I apologize for the lack of innovation, I know of we can do better on those occasions. Rest assured that next year we will have a very special event for our 10th anniversary.

    With 2017 freshly arriving into TalonRO, we're pleased to start off this incredible year of our tenth anniversary! TalonRO will celebrate its tenth year, and we plan to make it the best yet! Starting with our monthly updates, we're pleased to unveil two updates to Tam Tam's Gift and our Monthly Costume Box. Read on for this short but no less enjoyable update! Tam Tam's Gift comes to the Yuno region this month! Moving from Comodo to the mountainsides of Yuno, this month's TTG region is sure to incite adventure and intrigue! Please note: this region excludes the "Sleepers" maps (yuno_fild06 and yuno_fild11). Plus, our Champion mobs this month come from the likes of many mountain-bound monsters and familiar faces, such as Dustiness, Beetle King, Poring, Poporing, and Horn!. Good luck exploring around Yuno's ranges and the El Mes Plateau this month for additional opportunities to earn coins and gain valuable experience! TamTam's Gift Region January's region includes the Yuno fields / El Mes Plateau area. This month's TTG region excludes yuno_fild06 and yuno_fild11. December's Champions include ADustiness, Beetle King, Poring, Poporing, and Horn. Alongside TTG in this quick update, January 2017's Costume Box contents are now available in the Reward Guru, while the Decembver Costume Box has been removed from the Reward Guru (so long, 2016!). The Rainbow Sigrun Wings as always continue in the top slot - but new offerings such as the Under Lamp costume and Long Rabbit Ears costume are just two of the other incredible offerings this month. Monthly Costume Box Our full contents for January's Costume Box include the following items: Rainbow Sigrun's Wings Costume Under Lamp Costume (lower costume) Long Rabbit Ears Costume Checkered Bandana Costume Catalina von Brad 60 II Costume Drooping Dorasuke Costume Drooping Lumwin Costume Hoplite Helmet Costume Sakkat Costume Lazy Smokie Costume Circlet Costume We're proud to feature artwork in our General News postings from the TalonRO community!
