It's been a long time since my last update. I stopped actively playing RWK a few years ago but for quite some time I did log in daily to check for messages. Over the past year I've only been logging in sporadically. I'd like to thank everyone who has helped me collect ash over the years but now I'm asking new players not to waste their /mentor choice on me. I don't play RWK anymore so I have no need for ash. If you want to name a mentor, pick a player who has helped you or who you see helping others and give that character your mentor ash. I don't plan any further updates to this site so I'll use this last one to thank those who named me mentor but have not been acknowledged.

Thank you all for your help

In retrospect, I'm amazed how long RWK has lasted. I started playing in late 2000 when the first version was offered by Glitchless as a temporary entertainment while they finished getting Dawn ready for testing. As it turned out, Dawn never got to the alpha stage but RWK is still going more than 14 years later. I never would have expected that much longevity back at the start. It's been a lot of fun and I thank those players who helped make the game enjoyable over the years. I also want to thank Jeff Friedman (a.k.a. GOD) for developing the game and running it.

17 September 2011
I'll start with a belated Happy Birthday to RWK, which had its tenth anniversary on 9 September.  During the first few years of the game Glitchless celebrated the event by introducing new features, but in more recent years the anniversary has gradually faded away.  I thought something might happen for the 10th since it's a milestone but it never even got a mention in the Announcements.  I guess that's emblematic of the game's current status at Glitchless.  I had been wondering if the company would even use the anniversary to put the game to rest, but things just keep rolling along unchanged.

Thanks - The flow of mentees has really slowed to a trickle this year so I don't feel a need to update very often.  I want to thank those who have named me their mentor: Auz, Tamina, Foxwood and Thumper3069 on Server 1; Timl, Redhawk5, Aviance, Jackachu<, Peaceful Gremlin, Spadeform, Thumper The Rabbit, Cannible, Courpse, Sordesne, Korath, Apex Predator, Emperor Mengsk, Gremory, Rykker, Tungston, and Yamatouk on Server 2.

Crafted Items

Prices dropped so much that crafting for other players is not worth the time it takes to do.  I have listed crafting costs and any stat boosts in the crafting tables section.

Relics

All relics are explained on the help site, and I have also made my own version of that table with additional information.
