20 April, 2017 - Bonus AP day
- It's time for some bonus AP! All active players have been given 25 extra AP to help you locate and kill the remaining Easter Bunnies.
13 April, 2017 - Invasion of the killer bunnies
- The island is under attack from an army of bunnies! Aww, how cute you might say.. but these are no ordinary rabbits. They're the most foul, cruel, and bad-tempered rodents you ever set eyes on!
- The only good thing about this army is that it looks like they've been bringing gifts with them as there are now eggstra items to find when searching.
1 April, 2017 - Feeling a little blue?
- We were tired of the green colour scheme that's been used on Shartak for the last 11 years and with the new Smurf movie coming out figured that blue was as good a colour as any to base the new scheme on.
- Comments and suggestions welcome on the forum, Facebook or via the contact form
26 February, 2017 - Real-time Shartak (OOC) chat
- As mentioned in the forum, we now have a Discord server. This is a real-time chat (both text and voice) that's quite popular with gaming groups. Right now we're just using it for text but there's nothing to stop you from using the voice side of it too.
- If you already have a Discord account, simply visit https://discord.gg/Nb25Nth to get invited to the Shartak server.
- Don't have an account already? Visiting the above link will probably allow you to setup an account and join the server, but if you have any problems please give us a shout.
27 November, 2016 - Revenge of the spirits of the Ancestors (unofficial news)
- Head to Midway Island (off the south coast between York and Derby) and face the spirits of the Ancestors.
- More information at the forum thread.
28 October, 2016 - Spooky things are happening
- Spooky things are happening on the island. The dead don't stay dead for long and some of the huts have acquired extra residents in the form of cats and bats!
- If you kill something vicious, it's best to run away if you're getting tired otherwise you could end up "resting" longer than you intended.
16 October, 2016 - Shartak Underworld has moved
- For the last 10 years, Elembis has been running the Shartak Underworld - a kill/death logging system. He's now provided the code and database to be run on the same server as Shartak so with that comes a new address - http://underworld.shartak.com/
- If you have the old http://philosoph.us/misc/shartak/underworld/ address bookmarked, please update your bookmark.
- If you are using the Greasemonkey script to edit the profile page, please update the script using the one on the new page.
- Forum thread about this change
14 October, 2016 - Egg Entrada 2016 (unofficial news)
19 September, 2015 - International Talk Like A Pirate Day 2015
- There's another outbreak of the disease that makes everyone talk like a pirate. It seems likely one of the more recent arrivals brought it with them as it has swept across the island just like last year! The scientists on the island still have no clue what causes this, or why it only lasts 24 hours.
