Mysterious Codex

Mysterious What!?! Another Codex?!!!

This new feature is site based, its a monster codex that allows you to gain passive account wide boosts to all of your characters! It works by allowing you to use a new item type called Soul Stones to strengthen it’s knowledge about these monsters. Knowledge that it doesn’t share with you, but rather awards you with something called Codex Energy as each monster levels up. This Codex Energy is then usable in the Codex Shop to level up Codex Runes which each provide passive boosts to the characters on your account. This is a lot to process, so let’s break it down by each feature and give a deep dive to explain it!

Codex UI Quick Guide

Here are some images labeling the different parts of the codex pages to explain how they work.

Monster Info

Soul Stones

Soul stones are the life blood of the mysterious codex. They are vessels that carry information about the various monsters in L1.5 universe. Despite the name they do not carry the souls of the monsters, rather some unknown data trapped in its mineral form that the codex knows how to read. Soul stones come in two(2) forms:

Boss Soul Stone Mythic Boss Soul Stone
Boss Soul Stones
These Soul Stones are dropped from the bosses they are named after. They can also be obtained via various events and mini games. When used by the codex they have a 100% chance of giving +1 exp to the specific boss that drops them in the codex.
Zone Soul Stone Mythic Zone Soul Stone
Zone Soul Stones
These Soul Stones can be dropped by monsters in the zone they represent. They can also be obtained via various events and mini games. When used by the codex they have a chance to give +1 exp to one of the monsters in the zone they represent.

When used in game soul stones are stored to the “Site Inventory” system (this is where many mini games store the prizes they give). Once in the Site Inventory, they can be found in the Mysterious Codex’s home page. When won from a mini game they are already located in the site inventory and can be used directly from the codex.

When you click on a soul stone in the codex, it will prompt you to ask how many you would like to use like this:

How many would you like to use?

You can use 1, 5 or 10 stones at a time by clicking the number at the bottom right of this pop up. It will consume the amount you clicked to use and present the stones to be opened like this:

To open the soul stone, click and hold the mouse down on each stone until it charges up, then drag the mouse away from it until it pops open!

Open Soul Stone

If you’re in a hurry you can also hit the “Open All” button at the bottom of the result screen as well to open them all instantly. Once opened it will give +1 exp to the monster that was in the soul stone. If it levels up, you will receive codex energy depending on the rarity of the monster.

Codex Monsters

The purpose of opening soul stones is to level up the monsters within the codex. You can browse the monsters by the zones they are in by clicking the tabs at the top. When you click on one it will open a page on the right that shows more information about that monster and it’s progression through the codex. You’ll be able to see how much codex energy it gives per level, the current level, and the amount of souls required to level it up next. When the monsters level up they also increase the total codex exp which can level up the codex which is important for buying runes. You’ll be able to get the stones for these monsters from hunting the areas they spawn in or by playing mini games or events that have soul stones for them.

At release there are 80 monsters from 5 zones and 5 rarities. These zones are as follows:

  • Land of Beginnings - 24 monsters
  • Blazing Swamps - 11 monsters
  • Isle of Prayer - 13 monsters
  • The Underworld - 21 monsters
  • The Devil’s Blade - 12 monsters

The monsters can be of different rarities each giving different amounts of codex energy when they level up. The rarities are as follows:

  • Common - 1 codex energy per level - 28 monsters
  • Uncommon - 3 codex energy per level - 25 monsters
  • Rare - 10 codex energy per level - 15 monsters
  • Legendary - 50 codex energy per level - 10 monsters
  • Mythic - 250 codex energy per level - 2 monsters

Codex Runes

Codex runes are the purpose or reward for using this system. By obtaining them and upgrading them, you’ll gain passive, always active boosts to your characters. All characters on the account that your account will get these boosts and they are always active after you login to the game. If you collect a new rune or upgrade a rune, you may have to restart the game to apply its benefits.

At release there are 16 codex runes each with 10 levels. New runes will be added over time. You can see information about each of the runes by clicking on them in the codex shop.

The price of upgrading codex runes goes up exponentially each time it levels up so keep that in mind as its much easier to get a bunch of low level runes then to focus on one specific.

The starting runes are as follows:

Basic Strength Rune - Increases 2 Strength per level

Basic Constitution Rune - Increases 2 Constitution per level

Basic Wisdom Rune - Increases 2 Wisdom per level

Basic Intelligence Rune - Increases 2 Intelligence per level

Basic Dexterity Rune - Increases 2 Dexterity per level

Basic Charisma Rune - Increases 2 Charisma per level

Rune of Protection - Increases 5 Damage Reduction per level

Rune of Sharpening - Increases 5 bonus damage per level

Fortitude Rune - Increases 25 Max HP per level

Invigorating Rune - Increases 15 Max MP per level

Hawkeye Rune - Increases 3 Crit Rate per level

Rune of Piercing - Increases 10 Crit Damage per level

Rune of Hardening - Decreases 3 AC per level

Piercing Rune - Increases 20 Penetration per level

Rune of Determination - Increases 25 Resilience per level

Rune of Fortune - Increases 5 Luck per level

This NovemberThon donation event, we’ll be doing something slightly different. There will be donation tiers and random winners. What I mean by this is that if you donate certain amounts, you’ll be guaranteed a certain level of prize or better (better if you’re randomly drawn for the higher tier prize). This means that you can ensure you’ll get higher tier prizes by supporting L1.5 with larger donation amounts, and don’t have to worry about missing out despite larger support amounts.

NovemberThon Drawing Details

Entries will be tallied and drawn during the first week of December and all donations made throughout the month of November 2022, will be counted as one(1) entry for each dollar you donate during this time. The more you donate, the higher the chances you have to win! You will still receive gift coins and Pandora passes as normal.

November is already here and its already getting close to turkey day! This year we’ll be rolling out mini games and a new large system that will be year round adding strong boosts for all of your characters! But more details on that soon! To help fundraise and keep the server going with new features in the pipeline (and some new hunting areas) we are doing the NovemberThon event again.

Here are the planned events:

NovemberThon Donation Event

This is a donation event that stacks with the current Fall/Winter Donation event. Tickets are gained only during the month of November and the prizes will be drawn the first week of December. See the post for the prizes for this event. All donations in November are counted toward this, even those made before this was posted.

Increased Gift Coin Rate for Donations

The rate all month long will be 24 gift coins per dollar donated! This can be increased up to 100% by donating larger amounts at the same time! The rate is increased at $500, $1000, $2000 and $3000. Use the donation calculator to find out exactly how many gc you get for the donation you make! Donations made this month before this post have already had their bonus delivered manually, so check your inventory.

L1.5 Arcade

The L1.5 Arcade was such a hit this summer for the anniversary event, that I am bringing it back for Black Friday-Cyber Monday! Thursday evening the mini games will be turned on and will continue to be active until at least Tuesday. If there is enough demand it may remain open for the rest of the week.

These mini games have been reset and readied for this event and have some new prizes including soul stones for the new Mysterious Codex system coming this month!

There are even some new NFT Prizes in each of the prize pools for nearly all of the games! These NFT Prizes are very limited and don’t reset with each inventory reset so once they are gone, they are gone!

Because there are so many mini games the free plays/spins/etc are randomized. Every hour each character logged into the game will randomly get free plays/spins for the games. It rolls a chance for each mini game so you may not always get one but sometimes you may get 2 or 3 or more. Just stay logged into the game every hour to get these free chances to win prizes. If you want more chances, you’re always welcome to donate and will be given gift coins as a way of thanking you for your support, these can be used to continue playing the games.

The Longest L....

In September of 1998 a new game came out that would change the world of gaming. Lineage. This game released world wide on September 3rd 1998 changing the lives of many of us and forever making its mark. This game paved its way into our hearts with its addicting grind and slow paced progress that felt hard earned and very balanced.

In July of 2009, Zajako was messing around with an open source emulator for Lineage, trying to help make content for another private server that he was playing called Dlirk. At the time Dlirk became unresponsive in game and wouldn’t respond to attempts to contact him, so Zajako just kept tinkering with the code and experimenting with adding new content and features that would make the game fresh and new. Many of his friends from other private servers were very interested and wanted to try to play it. Soon after, there was a following and Zajako created a website for it and began opening it up to the general public.

As it was a hobby project and Zajako was a fan of both Lineage 1 and Lineage 2, he set about adding content from Lineage 2 to the Lineage 1 engine as a fun way to create the Lineage 2 that most avid Lineage 1 players wanted to play but did not adapt well to the 3D engine of Lineage 2. Thus Lineage1.5 was born.

After many years of growth and being noticed some legal issues came into play with one of the hosts for the Lineage1.5 website. As a precaution the game was renamed to L1.5 and many other changes were made to the site and game. Soon after the direction of the game greatly changed and while the content was becoming more and more custom and less Lineage (1 or 2) based, the branding was well established, so it was not further renamed.

Years later Lineage 1 was becoming less and less profitable for NCSoft in most of the world, and they shuttered their doors on the NA servers (which also served Europe, Australia, South America and pretty much all other English dominated markets) thus ending Depardieu, Ken Rauhel, and Lands of Aden servers on June 29th 2011.

Total time for Depardieu the first Lineage 1 NA server resulted in 4682 days or 12 years, 9 months and 26 days.

11 years later…

L1.5 is still up, still releasing new content and still thriving on donation based income! We’ve modernized the game to support multiple play styles and provide ways for those who can’t play full time to still make progress. Invented new and improved features that were never dreamed possible for a game like this. And even made a browser based client that can provide ways to connect and interact from nearly any modern browser. During this time we’ve never wiped the server and have only performed 1 rollback to facilitate an EPIC April Fools joke early in the server’s life.

At the time of writing this article, L1.5 has been up for 4748 days or 13 years! (See here)

This makes us the Longest L!!!.. Well in the NA markets (and most of the english speaking world). In Korea Lineage 1 is still thriving and releasing new content 24 years after it was created, which is something no other mmorpg can yet say!

Continue reading to find out the different ways we are celebrating this momentous milestone!

Limited Edition "L1.5 13th Anniversary Special" NFTs

When I said we modernized the game, it should have been modernizing, as we’re never done! The current modern world thing going on is crypto of course. NFT or non-fungible tokens have been taking the world by storm the past few years and while most of them seem to be gimmicky or don’t really serve a purpose, that’s not the case here.

These NFTs will provide passive boosts to your characters in game if you link your crypto wallet (currently limited to MetaMask wallets, more will be supported in the future) to your account via the page here: https://www.l15server.com/crypto/

Once linked the server will be able to see the NFTs in your wallet and provide the bonuses for each NFT that is affiliated with L1.5.

NFTs can be traded on public markets like OpenSea for crypto currencies like Etherium. Allowing you to buy or sell the NFTs and collect them all. Also these NFT bonuses stack, making it so that you can get even more bonuses by collecting more than one.

Whether you hold and get boosted by the NFT, buy more NFTs or sell to make money off of the NFT is up to you, as the NFT marketplace is controlled by the community and any NFT in your wallet is yours to do with as you please.

Tutorials for setting up MetaMask and linking to the server will be provided in the near future.

You can see the L1.5 13th Anniversary Special Collection here: https://opensea.io/collection/l15-13years

L1.5 Badge System

The classic badge system has been opened back up for use. This system will see updates in the future, however you can use it right away with the url:

You must change YourCharacterName to your character’s name. If it is blank this is because you have it disabled in the Site’s Options (located under Account > Options).

You can disable it, or limit the information shown here by going to those options and changing them.

These banners will currently not work for some of the newer classes as they were made many years ago. This too will be updated to support all the classes and some new background options will be added as well. These urls can be treated as an image url and if it is used correctly by whatever site you embed it on, it will be updated and kept fresh with your current status/stats.

RealTime Events

During the later half of July and the month of August (2022) there will be in game and discord events. These events will happen as Zajako has time to facilate them and will usually be given notice via discord / twitter and or in game announcements. These games will have rewards ranging from items in the game to even chances at some of the limited edition NFTs. Here is a list of possible RealTime events:

  • GM Spawn Events (in the Event Arena)
  • Find the GM Events (Zajako hides somewhere in game and the first ones to find him get a prize
  • Find the Item Events (An item is spawned or placed on the ground somewhere in game and the first one to find it gets the prize)
  • L1.5 Triva ( Questions about the game will be asked, prizes awarded to the ones who get correct answers )

L1.5 Arcade

One mini game isn’t enough for such a momentous occasion! So I thought, “why not bring them all back!”. Thus the L1.5 Arcade! Its a list of all the major mini games created throughout the years for L1.5. Ranging from the old gift coin wheel (not quite the original, but pretty close) to the latest Heroes of the Forest mini game released last year.

These mini games have been reset and readied for this event and have some new prizes that are unique to this anniversary event.

There are even some NFT Prizes in each of the prize pools for nearly all of the games! These NFT Prizes are very limited and don’t reset with each inventory reset so once they are gone, they are gone!

Because there are so many mini games the free plays/spins/etc are randomized. Every hour each character logged into the game will randomly get free plays/spins for the games. It rolls a chance for each mini game so you may not always get one but sometimes you may get 2 or 3 or more. Just stay logged into the game every hour to get these free chances to win prizes. If you want more chances, you’re always welcome to donate and will be given gift coins as a way of thanking you for your support, these can be used to continue playing the games.

Lastly I want to thank you all for the support over the many years. This achievement is only possible thanks to -you- the players. I’m blessed with the opportunity to continue to develop this game only thanks to this support and I’m going to continue to do my best to make sure we continue to be not only the Longest L, but the best as well.

As will be explained in an upcoming post about our 13th anniversary event, we are celebrating a major milestone. Passing the uptime of the North American (NA) official servers! I’m very excited to celebrate this with everyone of the L1.5 players and I plan to do several live events throughout the summer. This post however is focused on just one part of the event, the donation event.

Increased GC Rate

All donations in the month of July will be at a bonus rate of 20 GC per dollar donated, this can be boosted further by making larger donation amounts. Use the donation calculator to see these rate changes and find out exactly what we will give you as a gift for your donation. The gift coin rates and benefits will be locked in for the duration of the month. If the rates do go up for any reason, any donations throughout this month (July 2022) will be compensated for the difference. So don’t worry about waiting till later in the month for better rates!

Mini Game Galore

During this event, throughout the summer, there will be tons of mini games on the site to trade these gift coins for. This new system that will showcase and allow playing upwards of 9 mini games, everything from classics to some of the newer ones, is called the L1.5 Arcade. Details will be posted soon for this.
