We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: End of Week.
There will be incentives to create alternate characters through the Progeny System. Players will be able to 'retire' high level characters and then create their children as new level one characters. These new characters, the 'progeny', will have certain advantages; abilities, stats, etc. that make them slightly yet noticeably better than a completely brand new character -- but not to the point that it unbalances things.
