    1st July 2018 update. Well it's been a while since our last update, however that doesn't mean the work has stopped! As part of Beran's Reach's continued work, it's both jumped in size to become a municipality, as well as receive the honour of a community update! The entire east, south east and southern wall as been redesigned to both accomodate additional village housing as well as a vastly improved access way between Mhtic's inn and a large concentration of row houses. Work continues to evaluate a possible expansion of the city-proper, as well as a range of decorations to help it bring the walled city concept to life! More details to follow.

    9th October 2018 update. Beran's Reach continues ever-forward, its snowy biome becoming increasingly 'in vogue' as summer slowly but surely gives way to Autumn and winter. We've revamped our discord servers here while creating an all-new homepage to spread the word. Right now we have a town plot freely claimable within the city walls. If you fancy having a prominent home within a long-standing player community, now's your chance!

    7th April 2019 update. So, it's been a while since my last post, primarily due to the arrival of my second child and over 4 months of nappy duty. With spring well and truly spring, now's the time to do a bit of spring cleaning. We'll be looking at Beran's Reach to see what we can do to get the ol' girl into service. As with many towns across the land, things are a little quiet. Time to rectify that.

    To help things along, I'm keen to hear what you think about Beran's Reach, both the good and the bad. Good feedback will help us figure out next steps. Nothing's off the table, so if you have a suggestion that you think might be a bit drastic, don;t worry we'd like to hear about it. Feel free to post below or send me a quick PM. More details including future plans to be following shortly.

    23rd June Update. So, where to even begin. Perhaps with a map!


    [​IMG]



    As part of the rebuild effort, Beran;s Reach has moved from the northern reaches to closer to the Capital of Britanny. While further in and more accessible, it sits just outside of the main group of settlements and sits as the gateway to the North beyond. It's the best of both worlds. close enough to be accessible while sitting in a niche area that allows it to have its own space. This we hope will make it an appealing location both for those looking to set up shop, and who are considering a place to call home. Located just off the coast, the new climate is substantially warmer and more appealing to those who fancy seeing a bit of colour!

    Beran's Reach itself has seen a major update, making full use of the enromous 102,600 square feet of space available to it as a municipality. A true walled city in its own right, the new build currently accomodates an impressive line-up of 2 castle plots, 1 keep plot, 14 city plots, 17 town plots, 54 village plots and maaaaaaaaaany row plots. All of these are free to claim, with good access routes throughout the city and with well-situated NPC facilities. This we intend to provide a great city atmosphere, where all are very much welcome. Aside from being an ideal shopping location and hub for homes and guilds, we have significant space for hosting and supporting major events, as well as playing host to supporting activities across the community. So, we're looking to stay true to our vision and make Beran's Reach a living, breathing settlement.

    We're open to business and we welcome everyone to come have a look. We'll be decorating the city over the course of the next few months, so stay tuned for further announcements. if you have any queries, feel free to PM me direct, or pop by our discord server (here) and say hi.

    3rd July update. Beran's Reach is steadily coming to life, with the roads and plots largely set and made ready. ALL plots have been set too claim on a first-come, first-served basis. This has led to some new arrivals who are already in the process of either setting up shop or making themselves at home! In addition to the prime shop locations along the southern wall, Port Mae has also been established, within close proximity to the main entryway. An ideal location for anyone who fancies setting up their business. :)

    5th August update. This past month has seen beran's Reach go from strength-to-strength. The town is becoming a regular go-to point for all kinds of travellers, with new residents arriving every few days. The town has seen an increase in shops and businesses opening up, both around the town and in the new fishing village near the main entrance. What's more we've seen a number of exciting new developments which are showcased below!

    [​IMG]
    The centre of town now has the foundations of a fully-working central market, complete with stalls and meeting spaces. We're going to be running a series of market days both for residents and visiting merchants, details coming soon!

    [​IMG]

    We're seen the arrival of Hardholm park, a beautiful estate in the south west of the city. Well worth a visit, if only to take the air in the immaculately maintained gardens that are open to the public.

    [​IMG]

    We've also seen the arrival of Stonegard Manor, a prosperous estate situated noth of the central square on the borders of Beran's Reach park, a sign of affluence coming to the town.

    [​IMG]

    Farming has come to Beran's Reach, providing the inhabitants with a wealth of food for future markets, as well as a ready supply of reagents and ingredients to kickstart the local economy.

    [​IMG]

    Progress continues to be made as Beran's Reach begins to thrive once more. However, we have plenty of space for residents looking either for a home or perhaps a place to set up a business venture. We have many, many lots available, from row houses to vast city estates. If you're interested and want to find out more, simply get in touch and we'll provide you with everything you need. Our aim is to make Beran;s Reach a thriving, living, breathing town, we'll get there. The more the merrier!

    Having joined SotA fairly recently, it was very welcoming to find Beran's Reach. The city is well-positioned with convenient access to Brittany and the Hidden Vale, for shopping and lower-tier hunting. The Bears are eager to help and in general, there is usually someone around to help out when needed.

    If you are looking for a great place to call home, come check out Beran's Reach. I am certain you will find a cozy place to relax between adventures or simply a place to set up a trade.

    My brother, Janus and I have had a tinkering shop in Beran's Reach for the last 6 months or so (maybe more). I have to say that Vallas Tellen is a very active and engaged governor. There is always some exciting change or event in the works and ample opportunities to get involved. He's also quite open to new ideas.

    If you're looking for a place to open up shop or call home, check us out! And while you're there, stop by Trask Tinkering just off the main square: we're much more than whirlagigs and thingamabobs.

    It's been a lot of fun watching Beran's Reach go through its recent changes. It continues to be rewarding to be involved in its continuing changes and growth. As a streamer, it's been great meeting new players via twitch, and bringing a few of them into the BEAR guild.

    If you are interested in BEAR, and regularly play 9-12pm NBT, please feel free to say hi to me in game (I'm simply "Gravidy" there).
