 News

After the unavoidable discontinuation of the cooperation with Sorren, the Santharian Dream has started a new more promising cooperation with another site in order to realize a completely non-commerical adventure/role playing game you can enjoy in the Santharian universe. Cooperation partner is the Legendary Tales site (represented by Konstantinos Evgenidis), which provides the Legendary Tale editor and constitutes the programming side of the project in general. Goal is a textbased singleplayer RPG adventure game module for the LT program in the region of Nepris. The integration of existing material has already begun, main concepts of the project are still being worked on and defined in detail. More information, screenshots etc. may follow officially in later updates.

If you want to become part of this project yourself, please make sure to read the exact terms of the cooperation we've set up lately. Developers are always welcomed, be it to provide descriptions for items or rooms, or to work on game or quest design issues ina a complex game environment. If you have a profound knowledge of Santharia already, feel creative to work on a game project like this and agree to the terms of cooperation, please let us know. Thanks in advance!

Due to the discontinuation of the cooperation with Sorren the Santharian Dream team voted to change the world name from "Sorren" to "Caelereth". The name change was applied to all pages already, however, you might still encounter the old name here and there, as part of pictures for example or at stories you can download from the site. We'll take care of changing these references soon as well during the next days, so thanks for you patience. (Artimidor)
In the process of uploading the site anew several organizational things were corrected/improved concerning site design, e.g. folder structure, design adjustments at all entry pages which hadn't been adjusted to the new scheme so far.

The cooperation between the Santharian Dream and Sorren which should have resulted in a multiplayer MUD has finally been terminated by decision of the Santharian team. Reason for the discontinuation of the project was the inactivity on the Sorren side, which forced us to finally take action. New possible game projects are already being discussed, where the material which already exists could be used, though no promises can be made at this point. Please note that the pages on this site related to Sorren as well as the name "Caelereth" will be removed from the Santharian Dream in the course of the next weeks as soon as we've decided upon a new name of the world.
