Our donation policy

This server is completely free to play on, but in order for it to run, it requires many things that aren't free.
That is why we have set up a way for you as a player to contribute to the costs with the use of PayPal.

Gathered funds will be used for covering server costs, upgrading speed, adding new features and ensuring the long-term continuation of our community. Keep in mind that the word "donation" describes an act of giving without expecting anything in return.

Some of the funds may be re-donated to support software that helped build this shard and keeps it going (for example Wikimedia, Subversion, Notepad++, Fiddler) or to charitable organizations that promote computer literacy (such as OLPC).

Any amount you donate is welcome, but note that that PayPal charges a transaction fee, so by sending a small amount (for example, under one euro) you are mostly donating to PayPal.

Donation bonus all until Monday, February 13th 2023 23:59 shard time.

Excelsiorian Sandals as a bonus with a donation of 40 EUR or more. Also, double universal dyetubs.

The sandals weigh -100 stones (negative weight) and have 100 luck. When equipped, they reduce the weight of your character. If kept in your backpack, they reduce the weight of both your backpack and your character.

The bonus item is limited to one per account, you will only get it with your first donation that qualifies for the bonus. The universal dyetubs bonus apply to every donation in the bonus period, regardless of the amount.

Excelsior has been online for 17 years, thank you for contributing!
