    17th June Update. The never-ending update of the city continue with a number of fundamental improvements axcross Beran's Reach!

    The North West of the city has been converted into a walled enclosure, in preparation for an as yet to be announced feature.

    [​IMG]

    The Port area to the immediate SW of the city entrance has been signficantly expanded to include a more diverse selection of housing, as well as a range of NPC shops, as well its own bank.

    [​IMG]

    Following a short meeting of the Beran's Reach town planning council, the poorer districts to the north have been turfed out in favour of a new more gentrified district of spacious lots, tree-lined avenues and future fineries. This provides a stark contract between the north and south of the city, providing greater house ranges and opportunities.

    [​IMG]

    More improvements to follow.

    22nd July Update. The Megalopolis of Beran's Reach juggernaut continues to roll on as the city continues to grow with a new influx of residents. We've seen a fantastic rise both in new locations, including a number of personal estates, but also a range of new shops and businesses.

    [​IMG]

    On the corner of West market Boulevard and South Street, the newly re-founded Tellestate and neighbouring fields of Anokai Simigin are bringing in new produce to feed the swelling numbers of new arrivals.

    [​IMG]

    The Lightbringer estate now spans much of the southern end of Tellen Street, providing a rich feel to the otherwise up-and-coming area within the South West Quarter.

    [​IMG]

    Continuin north along Tellen street, a new antique shop surrounded by gardens provides the perfest respite for travellers seeks some quiet time.

    [​IMG]

    Overlooking Central Park and dominating Lion street, the imposing shape of the private residencce of Gix Vargach provides a new local landmakr for those seeking to pupulate the north of the city.

    [​IMG]

    Not to be outdone, the port area has seen a dramatic transformation with new rural residences overlooking both the port itself and the nearby devotional shrines.

    Looking for a home? Beran's Reach is open to all, with a range of plot opportunities available from row to castle plots, ready to claim. If you're interested in joining us, feel free to visit, or ask me a question direct. :)

    I took up Duke Vallas' kindly offer to set up a home within his town.

    If you happen to stop by my home, located here:
    [​IMG]

    Inside you may find various books on numerous topics that might interest you, and give you something to do if you wish. This could be helpful for many new or even existing players.

    Hope you enjoy.

    22nd August Update. To say that there has been a change in the number of new residents in Beran’s Reach would be a major understatement. There has been a massive surge of new buildings right across the city, with many plots being taken within both shopping districts and residential areas. Notable changes include:


    1. 2 new Castle islands and 1 new Keep island have sprung up on our shores, bolstering our shore defences and adding a sense of grandeur to the skyline.
    2. A new ship lies in dry dock off Port Mae.
    3. More houses have sprung up outside the southern walls, as residents behind to sprawl from the walled city.
    4. The northern quarters have become increasingly populated with larger, more prestigious homes as the wealthy have begun to move to more affluent tree-lined streets and districts.
    5. A number of services have sprung up within the city, including a prison catering to the more undesirable members of society as well as a library.
    6. New routes have been established to a number of trade hubs, enabling quick access for residents to shopping areas, as well as direct transport links to notable settlements across the lands.
    7. Nested within the environs of Beran’s Reach, the hamlet of Port Lihan has been renovated to support a small farming community, for those looking to have a peaceful life in the country.

    While space is increasingly at a premium, namely to its recent popularity, there still exist many opportunities for houses and businesses for residents. All are welcome to join!

    I think A previous post on RP section of Beran's reach (Bastion) was deleted but come on out RP'ers or Inky Denizens. I'm new to RP but I'd be so up for seeing this turn into an INKY NPC playground. Check out whats here and add on to it. Go anywhere, nothing is off the table, nothing offends.

    27th February Update. Wow, well it's fair to say that I haven't been keeping up with my updates! Beran's Reach continues to count as one of the big'ns when it comes to player owned towns. Update work over the winter has seen the expansion of farmland to the west, an increasingly large norther port area and an extension of the commercial shopping district in the main arrival area. Due to its frankly enormous size, there continue to be a broad range of plots available ranging from rows right up to keep-sized plots, within the city walls itself. Regardless of whether you're looking for the finest in urban living, or perhaps your own little secluded cove, chances are we have something that suits your needs. We're open to all, come see!

    As Portalarium loves to interact with it's more vibrant communities,
    Beran's Reach is probably going to be a very active place if you ask me ;)

    15th March Update. A number of prestigious plot locations have just opened up across the city. All these locations are free to claim on a first-come first-served basis. :)

    [​IMG]

    The first is a city-sized plot facing directly onto the main square, a short walk from the main entrance. A Fantastic event space or manor hour location. In addition, a number of bordering village plots have also opened up. Perfect for outlying buildings or guild house spots.

    [​IMG]

    Looking for your own walled plot? Then look no further. The old auction house location has just come available, complete with outlying walls. It's a beautiful spot that borders the central park, accommodating two city plots.

    [​IMG]

    A keep plot in the heart of the city has also become available. This plot dominate the northern area, with nearby access to both the central park and the northern gate. A Fantastic spot for anyone looking to have a manor house with a real presence.

    27th March Plot update. Sandwiched between West Street and Tellen Street, right next to a row of shops and on the outskirts of Beran's Reach stadium and the Beran's Reach teleporter nexus is an amazing cluster of plots. The perfect location for a group of players, or a substantial personal project. An amazing opportunity for carving out a central estate within Beran's Reach.
