Welcome to September’s edition of This Month in Our Past.
Two new worlds, two new PQs, Cody’s promise that he has yet to fulfill, an aggressive clock (of all things…), a poorly implemented but great idea, one of the most disappointing updates ever and Shammos’ moment of glory. September has been an average month.

Game Update Date: Thursday, September 8, 2005
– New World – Broa
– Cody and the Theme Park quest
-End of the Mark of the Beta giveaway
It was GlobalMS’s third world, Broa, added in September 2005. This came along with Cody’s promise of a great theme park that the players are still waiting for six years later and the end of the Mark of the Beta giveaway.
As of August 17, the creation of Dual Blades, Arans and Evans will be disabled in MapleSEA as they prepare for the Chaos that will rise later this year. This will not affect characters that have been created before August 17 and these classes will return after the Chaos update.
The Lion King’s Castle and Von Leon will also be released in MapleSEA on August 17.
July’s edition of This Month in Our Past has finally arrived! I apologize for the lateness.
July. Summer. Big Updates. July is my favorite month of the year because it always brings big updates. From the first ever Day of Darkness, to our favorite massive swimming-pool-in-the-ocean in Maple World. Empress Cygnus began recruiting her defenders on the world and a new class arose from the darkness. But the biggest July update of them all: The opening of the great MASTERIA.
