Org Bot Hosting
For anyone that has always wanted to run an org bot, but doesn't have the resources or technical know-how, Novagen (creator of The Leet chat app) is offering to help. For the in-game credit amount of 20 million per month, per bot, he'll set that up for you.
All you need to provide is a character name that will be the bot name itself. For security purposes, Novagen suggests using a Froob account that is free of any other characters. This way you aren't using a main account that has all of your 220's or any characters at all that you wouldn't feel comfortable giving access to.
If you are interested in this offer you will need to sign up at RKN Bot Hosting for an account.
No real money required. 20 mil per month in-game credits only.
Use a newly created Froob account for safety.
Create the character for the bot name on the Froob account.
Posted by Sezmra, the official word has come down concerning the small client that players could download and install if they did not have need of expansion content. Once the 18.7 patch hits live, the small client will no longer be supported.
Now would be a good time to get ahead of the curve and download the large client if you are in the group of those that only installed the small client. Since the date for the patch has not been announced, you don't want to be caught off guard and not able to play.
This month, Nusquam has posted the update which you can read HERE!
Included is information about some Martial Artist and Trader changes, automated seasonal spawns, and a tentative schedule for upcoming testlive patches, some more beta invites for the closed server, and the big 18.7 patch hitting live.
After reading, check out our poll to share where you sit on the profession changes.

Monthly Development Update - February 28th, 2014
Nusquam has posted the most recent development update, giving a taste of the 18.7 patch that will be hitting the closed test server on approximately March 4th. A new wave of beta invites will be happening at the same time, so the changes will begin testing with more players being added.
Many of the changes are getting very polarized responses, so check out the full post and see what you think.
