The island in Istaria, known as “Memorial Island”, is a special place that has been set aside by the Istaria development team. Memorial Island is for players to create lasting memorials to those who have passed away.
On either of the live shards (Order or Chaos), anyone may purchase a plot on Memorial Island and build on it. Once construction is completed on a plot, the plot may be immortalized, and will become a permanent fixture of Istaria, no longer requiring paid Access. It may also be maintained as a regular plot requiring a Property Holder subscription and changes can be made to the plot. As the intention for the island is to create Memorials which last beyond whether an individual pays a subscription or plays the game, we have set up some special rules for the Memorial Island which are unique for the plots on that island.
1) Anyone with an open Property Slot may purchase a plot on Memorial Island, however these plots are intended for memorials to people who have died. These plots are not intended as memorials to concepts, bands, interests, pets, etc.
2) Memorial Island plots are under a special “small” category and have a limited list of items which may be built on them. No storage structures of any type should be able to be built on these plots, nor machine structures. Machines are provided on the island for basic crafting, and thus are not needed on the Memorial Island plots themselves.
