Letter to the Players
- A narrated introduction to the new island of Aphus Lassel.
Town Crier Rumors
- Town Crier tells you, "Did you hear about Marae Lassel? The olthoi are digging deeper!"
- Town Crier tells you, "Those construction Golems in Arwic sure are slow and lazy! Of course, I wouldn't say that to their, uh, faces. Actually, forget I said that!"
- Town Crier tells you, "My brother-in-law went to a new island and all I got was his corpse."
- Town Crier tells you, "A word to the wise, be very careful when traveling through the Direlands. The tuskers have some new stone idols that they carry with them. They even worship them in front of virindi. What could this mean?"
- Town Crier tells you, "Did you feel that earthquake, someone told me that it was the result of the slumbering Harbinger. How long will it sleep? How long can it sleep? What is it?"
- Town Crier tells you, "I hear a new rumor has mysteriously appeared in certain outlying towns. How does a rumor just appear, anyway? You'd think the shopkeeper would notice a piece of paper appearing in his .. err .. inventory."
- Town Crier tells you, "Tusker Temples... who would have ever thought they would start worshipping things and have worshippers themselves. Careful in there. I hear that if you pray to the statue something happens."
- Town Crier tells you, "Reapers, Devastators, Annihilators.. what kind of place is that island?"
- Town Crier tells you, "I'm afraid of anywhere where the tusker is king."
- Town Crier tells you, "My cousin went to a new island and all I got was a t-shirt and a plaque and a toy tusker. So, I'm happy."
- Town Crier tells you, "I've seen the little black carenzi's running around. They're fast, strong, and violent. I think that they earned their name."
- Town Crier tells you, "Stay away from the really big Tusker. I hear that they are incredibly strong and brutal."
- Town Crier tells you, "Who is this Bobo that the tuskers are talking about? Does he have something to do with that new...place?"
- Town Crier tells you, "Marae Lassel seems to have gotten a little more savage."

New UI and Game Changes
- The Tusker island of Aphus Lassel has been discovered. You can view Tubine's official video preview of Aphus Lassel here.
