May 5, 2014: This marks the second weekend of a programming and infrastructure blitz - our servers were moved to the East Coast of the US, and we introduced a new 'responsive' design for the main pages and wiki. This should allow you to have a better experience using Hollow on your mobile devices. Let the admin know if you are having any trouble!

April 26, 2014: A few updates tonight: a minor change which changed the look for the main room pages, new battle layout, decreased the chances of failing to escape battle, most methods of communication can now be directed to another player (ooc to Player Hello!), improved flexibility allowing admin to change many aspects of battle without involving a programmer.

February 9, 2014: Hollow has changed URLs slightly - to httpS://www.hollowgame.com. The extra S helps improve security for all players (and provides a pretty lock icon in your URL bar!) Please report any adverse effects to an admin.

Hollow is still using Google to process payments, but it has a new look and process that handles all payment within the page. Credits are now available for use immediately after purchase. Hollow now sees even less personal information, and as before, Hollow never sees your financial information. If you have any questions or encounter any problems, please email support.

September 8, 2013: Blessings are now available to purchase for custom armor. Blessings do not stack with separate pieces. Even with tier 4 blessing some of the higher level mobs may still attack you, although the chance of this happening is lower.

July 31, 2012: Characters that are at least 6 months old and who have reached 4,500 HP may now purchase ONE cross-class skill for use in statting (not necessarily in rp, although using this feature to back up an rp approval is encouraged) for the price of 100,000 gold. Orders should be sent to CUSTOMS and need merely state which skill you would like. Note that this is currently in a testing stage and all skills acquired this way may be removed without warning (but with full refund). We suggest characters without MP do not pick magic abilities.
