17:34 KST - Eagles were implemented
A new monster, eagles were implemented. Since it is flying in the sky, we may need to use bow and arrows to attack it. Also its shadow and body were quite far away (about 3/4 screen). We have to point to its body and press "CTRL+Left Click" in order to attack it.

Also Monster Info is updated.

16:56 KST - American based server will be come soon
According to the message of Admin in the Official Lineage Bulletin Board, American based server will come soon in few months.
Here is the message of Admin:
Thank you for using lineage online game.

I know that it is very hard to play on lineage because of PK. We are planning to service in america preety soon. We are contacting American based ISPs and I think it will be possible to start lineage service in few months. The ISP will put another server for their customer.

I will keep posting about international service related news.....

16:48 KST - Bugs of Shop (Pandora)
If we sell items to pandora and we do not have any adena, then we cannot receive adena from her. We need to restart to see the adena in our inventory.
Also, if the price of item(s) is same as the adena we got and we buy them, then the adena will not disappear until we restart.
The bugs above are just visible errors, we will not get any advangage or disadvangage from them.

15:10 KST - Charging of Lineage for Foreigner (Updated)
Foreigner (from countries other than Korea) do not need to pay for the 10% tax, so the charge is lower:

Plan Discount Charging Charging per Month
1-month 0% 27,000 won HK$157 US$20.2 HK$157 US$20.2
3-month 20% 64,000 won HK$371 US$48.0 HK$124 US$16.0
6-month 30% 113,000 won HK$655 US$84.8 HK$109 US$14.1
1-year 40% 194,000 won HK$1125 US$145.5 HK$94 US$12.1

10,000 won = about HK$58 or US$7.5
PS: We can still play freely until 3rd Sep.

17:52 KST - Bug and Solution
If you encounter any error message like "you need ws2_32.dll" or some kind of failure message when run Lineage. And you are using win95 system, you need to upgrade the winsock program in order to solve the problem.

15:08 KST - Menu and Background Changed
I have changed the menu location and the background images. I hope it will give a more comfortable viewing. ^_^

20:36 KST - PK List Updated
I added 5 PKs to PK List.

18:00 KST - PK List Updated
I have updated the PK List. Pictures of the name of Korean is optimized and I add one more PK.

15:44 KST - Alignment rate changed
Lineage has adjusted the alignment rate, it will be very hard to change back once we become chaotic. So we should stop PKing, otherwise...

14:20 KST - More about the 521 update files
In the 521 update files, Lineage change the mouse pointer system also. Now we can attack monster by simply left click, and attack other players or guards by CTRL+left click. It can decrease the chance of wrong hit when killing monster in a group.
However, it is harder to pick up items. We need to double click or drag the item to our body in order to pick it. Personally I prefer the old picking item method...

Wolf, the new monster, is a little bit stronger than orc. And it seems only attack the Chaotic player first.

The location of the Shop(Pandora) is in the northern inside the town.
