March 2024 Roundup

Spring continues its sweep over Ivras, bringing warmth and life to every corner of the land. The busy times continue, and the fair weather seems to be holding steady.

New characters, new players, new mods! March has been an exciting time, and we want to say thank you everyone for celebrating our 3rd anniversary with us! 🎉 🎉✨🎇💖



📯great hunt: dart & shrimp

The warning about poisoned waterways turned out to be two monsters hiding in the Sunless Jungle near Namarast.

The hunt for the Anuran Bane and the Opal Serpent continues, though recent reports indicate that they are weakening…



Check the bulletin to join the fight!



💖a big thank you…

To our beloved mod GoId, who sadly will be stepping down from staff duties due to real-life happenings. Gold has been part of Anathema almost since the beginning, and a member of the staff team for over a year. Her help with apps and content has been absolutely invaluable and hopefully we will see her back on the mod team again at some point 🧡💙

I can't thank you enough for your contributions and I hope we will see you around as a player!

Which leads us to…



🔶 new mods!!

This month we opened applications for a few new mod positions. Thank you so much to everyone who applied 💖 We may open for even more mod positions in the future, so keep your eyes open (and if you applied this time, feel free to apply next time too!)

Please welcome our new mods:

Desperish - content mod
Mydajk - bank mod
Kytte - shop mod

Desperish has actually been a mod for Anathema before this; they were part of staff from the very beginning, and we are happy to have them back! Mydajk has been part of Anathema for a long time, and Kytte joined our player community last year. Big welcome to all three!



In other mod-related news, Hymy is switching from being mainly a bank mod to being a content mod.



🦄🤡 rebranding anathema

Huh, would you look at that? All our beloved characters got dunked in a vat of glitter and got brand-new butt tattoos! As of 1st of April, Anathema is now part of the My Little Pony universe.

Until the 15th of April, earn double gold for drawing or writing about your character in the MLP style! Or come muse with us in the Character Headcanons discord forum thread about what talent/cutiemark your character would have!



📌 notes and reminders

Make sure your characters’ logs are up to date!

Don’t forget to add new stat changes, item purchases, or applied ley tokens to your character's log. The log should have the date of the change, a link to proof of the change (confirmation comment, finished prompt piece, ley token bank page, or link to great hunt gallery) and effects of the change (how their magic was changed, what an added item does, etc)

Do not only link to the prompt itself! We need to be able to see that you responded to the prompt.


Story prompt reminder

Story prompt responses for characters should be done and posted individually, one character and one prompt per response, with their own separate gold counts.

Basically, each work can only be in response to one thing; you can't collect multiple rewards from one work. If you have a longer, over-arching storyline for multiple characters or one that answers multiple prompts, please separate it into chapters or sections, each with their own gold counts. The only exceptions to this are roleplays or art collaborations (by two or more people), as long as each participating character's posts/choice are clearly labelled.

If you have any questions about this, hit us up in Modmail or in ⁠ask-staff!



✨ april 2024 story prompt

Every month, we provide a brief narrative prompt, with four potential choices for your character to make. Draw or write your character's choice, and receive double gold for your response! Mages will earn a mystery stat point based on their choices, which will be revealed with the next month's prompt.

Prompt responses should tag this profile, and must be worth at least 1 gold of art or writing. You are allowed to submit collaborations and roleplay as responses to the monthly story prompts, but every participating character's choice must be clearly indicated for mods.

Click here (or scroll down to this bulletin's comments!) to view the prompt for April!

🧾 seeking player-made story prompts!

Players are invited to submit their own story prompts for all Anathema players to enjoy! These prompts are open for two months at a time, and anyone can reply! Draw or write your character's choice, and receive double gold for your response! Mages will earn a mystery stat point based on their choices, which will be revealed with the next month's prompt.

Prompt responses should tag this profile, and must be worth at least 1 gold of art or writing. You are allowed to submit collaborations and roleplay as responses to the monthly story prompts, but every participating character's choice must be clearly indicated for mods.

To see the rewards for February/March's prompt, click here.



If you have ideas for a prompt of your own, send them in via Modmail on our Discord server!

april 2024 Story Prompt:


Spring is the time for new life, vibrant celebrations, and colorful festivities. Birdsong fills the air, mingling with the buzz and bustle of insects among the flowers.

Spring is also, unfortunately, the time for runny noses, itching eyes and bouts of sneezing. Both hay fever and spring colds run rampant, and the healers and physicians of Ivras are hard at work, helping where they can.

How does your character deal with it?

  1. Luckily for them, they don’t get sick. Your character has earned +1 Power.
  2. They complain endlessly about it. Your character has gained -1 Cost. If they already have 0 Costs, you may choose to give them +1 Corruption instead.
  3. Only weaklings get sick. Your character has earned +1 Corruption.
  4. They endure being indisposed without telling anyone. Your character has earned +1 Discipline.

Prompt responses must be worth at least 1 gold (i.e. at least 100 words or at least an uncolored headshot).
Upload your response like any other art or literature submission, tag this character profile, and claim your gold; collect double your total count for prompt responses. You may submit collabs and RP as prompt responses, but every participating character's choice must be clearly indicated for mods.
