As some of you may be aware, Sohanscape originally closed its door to the public on August 28th of this year. When the previous release of Sohanscape occurred, it was self-evident that the server was not ready to be released. There were countless issues regarding the development as well as the management aspects of the server. We decided to take a step back and identify the leading issues in the development processes. Ultimately, that made us realize that he needed to bring on more experienced staff members as well as developers.
I decided to reach out to a long-time friend of mine for some help with the management aspect of the server. Thankfully, we agreed on a partnership and devised a plan of action for the server together. My co-owner, @Hank, and I now handle the day-to-day responsibilities, such as managing the development of the server, marketing, the staff team, etc... together.
In the past few months since SohanScape has been shut down, our developers have been hard at work, polishing nearly every single reported bug and in the past few months since SohanScape has been shut down, our developers have been hard at work, polishing nearly every single reported bug. We also decided that the previous parts of Chambers of Xeric as well as Theatre of Blood that we had in the server were sub-par. We have fully re-written both Chambers of Xeric and Theatre of Blood. The server is in MUCH better shape now, and we are really excited for the release.
Speaking of the release:
Our launch date is on the 20th of December, 8pm GMT + 1, you can find a countdown timer on the main page of the forum. (That is the equivalent to 2:00PM UTC -5).
Make sure to join our community discord server as we will have multiple exclusive giveaways as well as important information posted there. Join now - https://discord.gg/XUn6uDn
Will we get our accounts/donations back?
With the relaunch of the server, we decided the best course of action was to do a fresh reset of the server. The previous release had several exploits/dupes that were ignored so if accounts were kept, that would have greatly impacted the servers re-launch.
Along with the idea of retaining economic integrity, we will be refunding 50% of purchases made on the previous release of Sohanscape, one week after our initial release in the form Store Credit. If you have any questions regarding this, feel free to PM me, @Sohan.
How will accounts work?
We've decided to integrate our forum accounts with the game accounts, this means that your forum credentials will be your in-game credentials. If you would like to reserve a username that you want to have for the release, you will need to register your forums account as soon as possible. Upon registering, feel free to make a introduction thread as well to start getting to know some of your fellow community members! (Note, our smtp service is setup for emails; however, it may be a little slow until the launch so your registration email may take a few minutes to go through).
Also: It is always a good idea to use a new, unique password that you have never previously used on another RSPS.

What updates have you done?
Here is our official update thread of things that have been done since beta has begun:
Discord Invite Competition:
We will be running a referral contest to bring in new players to Sohanscape. This event will last up until December 25th, at Midnight. This is where members invite others to try out Sohanscape for the chance of being rewarded with prizes. We will be tracking this through the discord server with a discord bot to ensure that there is no cheating involved.
In order to participate:
Create an instant invite (you can do this by hovering over the #general channel and selecting the Invite icon) to the Discord.
Set the link to never expire.
Share the link with others.
New players will count toward this content. Inviting current players who may make an alternate account, etc... will not count toward progress for prizes, etc and may get you disqualified from the competition completely.
Any cheating in any way will be disqualified from the contest.
Do not spam other RSPS's with your invite link. We do not wish for any bad blood to occur from this, nor is that how we want to gain players.
You must use an invite code set to never expire. If you lose invites by using a code that does expire, we will not count that toward the competition.
There will be 5 winners for this contest:
First Place: 100M 07 GP & 100$ of store credit on Sohanscape.
Second Place: 50m 07 GP & 75$ of store credit on Sohanscape.
Third Place: 25m 07 GP & 50$ of store credit on Sohanscape.
Fourth and Fifth Place: 25$ of store credit on Sohanscape.
For every 10 referrals you get, despite being in the top 5 of this event, you will receive a Sohan M-Box.
We hope to see you in-game and we are very excited to take over the scene together! Again, don't forget to join our discord to stay up to date with any changes/updates that are done before the release.
Yours Truly, The Sohanscape Team.
