Endora Graal Server History

Endora
Graal Server History


Endora is a 2004 Graal Server that had a medieval theme for a Role-Playing server.
It will have monsters to fight, levels to gain, armor to wear, weapons to shed blood with, events to enjoy, hats to wear, quest to conquer, dungeons to explore, and much more.
The server was ran mainly by Dark Elf & AvalonDaebust.

Information above about Endora was copied and edited from here

Endor was officially hosted on GraalOnline server list on 05-22-2009


A message from AvalonDaeBust about the server.
I (AvalonDaeBust) initially set up Endora, together with “Dark Elf”… -We got a full level pack and a custom tileset from some LAT guy that wanted to share it with us. (His name was “DaSportsPlaya”) -We wanted it to be an open-world RPG hack & slash game with monsters walking around different areas / zones in this playerworld inspired by a game i used to play & love called “Ragnarok Online” -Lack of proper people to help us on the GFX, sprite, gani part etc. led us to lose motivation and quit our efforts. – Gave it to an IRL friend of mine who goest by the name “K9” who then picked up from what we left off, together with his friend “Contiga.

We used to have a “tree top village” it was my favorite part of the map.
It was later removed without my permission as the LAT guy didn’t like it …

Endor Project ended in 2004 by the lack of talent they were not able to hire on any REAL developers for Endor.  Then on  06-12-2008 another announcement is made by warmaster70229 stating the following post.

Endora has returned, a land of fun, friendships, betrayals,
and awkward alliances awaits you!

The Good Old Days…

Endora started a few years back,
but was shut down do to some server issues,
and didn’t come back up as expected, it was originally a
hosted server, being inspected for classic status,
and had up to 30-40 players on at one time.


Main Idea

The idea or purpose of endora is simple: Just have fun!
We provide quests, frequently updates items,
an expansive GMAP, nations (Almost done),
and much more, your job is to simply have fun with it!


Now to the point!

As we have just been brought back,
we are looking for some staff to help us get
patched up and ready to re-apply for Hosted,
we are hiring the following staff as of the current moment:

1-3 Level Makers.

1 Scripter (As a possibility,
I can likely handle it myself,
and if I can’t we have Chompy)

1 Ganier.

1 Monster/Item Designer.

Thank you!

I will be posting some screenshots early tomorrow,
have a great day everyone!

Once again the server did not really see any support from the graalians community and ONCE again went back on the back burner. Until  11-08-2007 when MysticalDragon made a post on the official graal forums. Now one thing that MysticalDragon  did unlike the other people who posted on the forums is he actually had a pretty good intruction about the server and what they needed. He also included screenshots of what they have done and made on Endora. Here is a copy of the post from MD (Mystical Dragon)


The other thread was kinda off topic and didn’t consist of what endora needs.We’re currently seeking Development positions such as GFXs,LATs,NATs and MOSTLY GATS.You can either forum contact me,Angel or Drastic Vendetta if interested in one of the following positions.Please don’t asked to be hired for a position that is not listed above because you will be black listed from our Non-Development staff when we are classic.
Endora is a beautiful playerworld that was originally created by Contiga, Krattos, Em and the rest of there staffs.Within time like most playerworlds the development deteriorated and staff became inactive until the playerworld died. I came along at the beginning of 2007 and picked up a team and where endora left off and continued its progress. Since then endorahas made a 360 Degrees
turn around and is being shaped into a playerworld that every player would love to enjoy.
Endora is a Magical playerworld with over 80 Weapons,7 Quests,5 Games and a Party System that involves Raids. Raids is a party that consist of more then 10 players in order to complete a massive Multi-Player quest.

Here is a few Snapshots out of the many that I COULD post, but then again there is not enough room on here or better yet a whole hard drive to hold as much excitement as endoraoffers……

Thank You for your interest in Endora and I hope you enjoy your stay.

Here is our Nice Designed QMenu filled with a bunch of different unique armors that you can obtain on Endora.You can also drag items off your qmenu using your mouse to drop/trade items.

This map is just like Graal Kingdoms.You can set markers etc, but the only difference between this map then GK’s is that other players appear on the maps as well.
endora_GUI.png
Endoras GUI (Graphic User Interface).Endoras GUI was GFXed by Krattos and Scripted by me.The uniqueness of the GUI that I like the most is the Hotkey type buttons that allow you quick access to some of your many options.endora_levelupsystem.png

To level up you have to kill Monsters and bosses.Everything on Endora has exp and levels, such as Fishing,Mining,Swimming,Sword,Magic,Combat etc.

Okay now what Mystical Dragon posted above to try to get the attention of the graalians community to hire staff what pretty legit compared to past posts. He actually gain alot of support from the community and a lot of developers were lining up to help with Endora unlike the past posts.  This pretty much was the last we heard of Endora from it’s staff and from MD until 07-06-2010Enchanted Wolf XxX announce Endora: Reborn ! Now from the picture below the server actually looks like it could be good if all the levels look like that but, How he posted on the Graal Online forums does not really get the attention of people other than saying the server looks like Ragnarok, World of Warcraft, etc. The Graalians community really did not seem to find any interest in this announcement by EnchantedWolfXxX who was supposedly the new manager of Endor at this time. Below is a statement copy of exactly what EnchatedWolfXxX posted.

The message above that Drizzy sent out did not seem to get a lot of the Graalians community attentions especially with a few know players who abuse for example Triple_Combo who is known to get a staff position on every new or old server possible just to pretend to help so she/he can get items later on if the server goes up.

At this point the server seem to get no help or support from the Graalians community and once again went back onto the back burner. Until 07-19-2011 when tstre tried to recruit developers once again Endora but not much was said at that point from the community or from Endora staff. (Link Here for tstre post)
