|Hello everyone, a few updates for you today.|
-Black Knight Titan
The Black Knight Titan is a new low-level boss that has been added under the ::boss menu. Find the Titan by running through the dungeon without entering the Obstacle Pipe. The main purpose of this boss is to help new players get started making money if they are into bossing. It is good for new players for a few reasons. Drop rates are quite high, it's not very strong, and most importantly, it's not in a wilderness area.
Drops: Dragon claws (very rare), Bandos chestplate (rare), Bandos tassets (rare), Saradomin sword (rare), Dark bow, Dragon arrows
This boss has been tweaked slightly to make it easier to kill, including lowering the hitpoints, defense, and accuracy. Along with this, the drop rates have been slightly improved, including the Korasi drop rate being increased by 25%.
-King Black Dragon
This boss should be a bit harder to fight now, considering it can now hit you while you are fighting it from a distance. Because of this, all of its drop rates have been increased by about 20%.
The mole now only has 2 spawn points, East of Mage bank and North of Falador. Due to this, the rate it is now spawned has been increased from 15 minutes, to 30 minutes. Drop rates remain the same: awesome.
Zombie Champion has been buffed a bit to keep it as the toughest boss in the game. However, it will be changed once again pretty soon to make it less difficult. However, its drop rates have been increased slightly.
After voting, you can relog into your account to receive an additional vote reward if you earned at least 30 Vote points. This reward currently ranges from Whips to Dragon claws. It is still subject to change, I just wanted to start it out by only giving some decent items, in case somehow the rewards given are too high.
Some prices in the Donator Shop have been adjusted to make more sense. For example, Dragon claws are now 5 tickets instead of 20. Vesta's longsword has been re-added into the shop.
Using potions on noted potions will no longer grant you a potion of that type.
I am aware of a few more bugs that are in the server currently, and will be fixing them soon.
If you have any comments or suggestions about these updates, please post them here.
Thanks, have a great weekend.

I would like to apologize for the recent server downtime, apparently something has corrupted the VPS that the server is hosted on (or something of the sort) causing the server to constantly crash nearly every day.. I am not sure of the cause at the moment, but I am sure it is nothing to do with the server source itself. So within the next few days I will be working on transferring it to a new host, which will hopefully fix the problem altogether, also will reduce some of the lag (if there is any).

I apologize for the downtime and the wait for the update. I am still working on it, and it will be applied soon!
Thanks, have a great weekend.

I noticed some people are saying the server is "Still offline" on the forums. One possibility is that you didn't re-open the client (I had the same issue at the beginning, once I re-opened the client it let me login once again). So if you are still having problems logging in after restarting your client, you may be IP banned from the game. If that is the case please make an appeal on the forums saying why you were IP banned and I will look into that for you.

Hello everyone, tonight the server will be offline for an hour or two while I am downgrading to a Virtual Server.
Why am I downgrading? There are 2 reasons.
1. The price difference. I cannot pay $200+/month anymore for the server as we do not have enough players to help pay for the cost.
2. If I start working on the new source again, it will run very smoothly even on a cheaper server. The current source is very old and takes a lot of power to run. I do plan on finishing the "new source" however I have to invest A LOT of time to complete it, which is the main issue. Obviously I have not had the time to work on anything server related due to the fact that I've only been working on recoveries so everyone can have their account back.
On the bright side, over 90% of the accounts have been recovered. There are still 100 left and I am planning on finishing those today, if you still have not received your account just wait a while.
What does this mean?
More updates! I understand it has been a while since I've done an update, somewhat due to the hacking, however I am going to begin working on some nice updates to improve the current source for a while so I can have the time to also work on the newer version, which is significantly better than the current one.
Although I can come up with some decent ideas from time to time, I am not the best at coming up with cool features to add to the server. If you have any ideas that you think could improve ForeverPkers in any way, please post them here. I try to read the suggestions forum very often.
If you have any further concerns regarding your account, or anything else feel free to message me on the forums or my email firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a great day.

You may be wondering why your account is still not recovered. There are multiple reasons, I will name a few:
1. People are not using the recovery system correctly
2. People are spamming the recovery system trying to recover accounts that do not belong to them
3. People are submitting 10 recoveries for the same account which is not necessary, you only need to submit 1 and wait
4. There are nearly 1,000 entries for recoveries right now and it is only going up, at a rate that is faster than I can do the recoveries alone
5. The obvious. Wrong information entered to recover. If you enter completely invalid information and it doesn't match with what you donated, you will not see your account recovered.
If you want your account recovered, and you have already submitted a recovery, there is only one thing you can do. Wait. Don't spam the forum shoutbox saying the server's crap just because you haven't gotten your account back yet. It takes time and I am trying to make the time to do the recoveries, however it is made much harder when people are misusing the recovery system.
I'd like to apologize for everyone who has been waiting a long time for your recovery. I understand it can be frustrating to wait sometimes, but unfortunately there is no way around this. People are just trying to take advantage of the system and the toll is, it's taking 3 times as long as it should to recover the accounts.
I appreciate those who have been waiting patiently for their recoveries, I promise I am not just neglecting them, however it may seem. Once the recoveries have been completed and start appearing slower I will have the time to complete the boss remake update I started working on a while back, which will include enhanced loot tables and better balancing to allow for them to actually be a challenge!
Due to the current situation with recoveries, I will be extending the double drop rates until nearly all the recoveries have been completed, so those who have not yet received their account can still have something to do while they wait for their account to be recovered.

|Just a quick notice to those recovering accounts. There was a slight error in the account recovery system which was not sending recoveries under certain conditions. This has now been fixed. |
If you have been waiting for more than 24 hours for your account recovery, please submit a new recovery and it will be recovered as soon as possible.
Thanks, hope you all have a great weekend

Due to a bug with our login system I have had to change the way the system works, this is the reason some of you may not be able to log in to the game currently. Don't worry - this is a good thing.
The login system has been changed back to the original, which means all passwords are now being held on the server itself. The reason for this is because you were able to login to any account by entering symbols instead of letters, which is how the economy was flooded with spawned items. This is completely the fault of not testing the coding and I apologize for that. Because of this, the items on the server will have to be reset so we can have a fair economy, once again.
So, how can you login to your account? If your password is currently not working enter the updated recovery page here. Account recoveries can take up to 24 hours or less than an hour, they are done manually so just submit one and wait for us to check the information.
As always you will receive most of the points you have accumulated while playing the game again, items have just been reset.
To apologize for this inconvenience, the drop rates will be doubled for the next week (Until May 2nd) to make up for the time lost with a flooded economy.

The new update includes updated Shiny key loot, the Present box and Magic chest keys.
Shiny keys now have a chance of giving a polypore staff very rarely.
The Present box can be bought from the Donator shop for 5 Donator tickets, here are the current rewards which are being updated soon.
Along with the Shiny key, the Magic chest keys (Purple) from the Present boxes also have a rare chance of giving you a Polypore staff.
The Purple keys can be used to open the Magic chest in Edgeville.
More updates to come soon.
