For those who don't know, we launched a new PSOBB server named "Ephinea". Ephinea is a place to showcase the latest version of the Tethealla server, while at the same time trying to find a good balance between the vision of Blue Burst that SEGA had and some of our own changes we wanted to see made to the game. This means we’ll keep true to the original PSO formula and balances, while adding new features and conveniences to keep the game interesting.

For example:

  1. You now have a common bank in which you can make item transfers between characters.
  2. Multimode switches not requiring 2-4 people to activate.
  3. PSO2 style drops in which monsters and boxes generate items for each player, not for the whole party. Anything you see dropped can be safely picked up by you without a rebuke from the party, as no one else in the party can even see the item to begin with. You are free to trade items after pickup. (Optional system, you’re not forced to use it.)
  4. PSU style “Luck” system in which a combination of Race, Gender and Class flags will influence the drop rate of the game you create/lead. (Optional system, you’re not forced to use it.)
  5. A “Hunters Boost Road” system which lets you run featured quests to improve your drop rates in those quests. Useful for hunting items!
  6. A brand new “Hardcore” mode, in which a character you create will die permanently upon it’s first death without the use of a Scape Doll.
  7. Various quality of life commands, which can be found by typing /help in the lobby in-game.
We also feature Leaderboards, a Permanent Milestone Event, the ability to use a Japanese or an English client and have the entire game, including quests, show up in the language of your choice. (The interface will be in other languages like Spanish, French, and German in the future, but that is some time away.)

We also have a “Sandbox” mode. Read the following topic for more information on that: Is PSO old to you?

If you'd like to register, know more, or download the official client, please visit http://ephinea.pioneer2.net

Thank you to all the PSO players who are still playing the game!

The downloadable client has been updated with an actual installer instead of a .ZIP file. The installer is also quite a bit smaller as a result.

You can find the installer for the client at https://files.pioneer2.net/Ephinea_PSOBB_Installer.exe

The installer also applies the necessary registry keys instead of manually making the user run install.reg (Though this is still required if you use multiple Windows user accounts, you'll have to run the install.reg for any account that isn't the account you've installed the game under in order for global focus sound and the like to work properly.)
