Eberron Plane[edit]

Risia.png Risia, The Plain of Ice is one of the Planes of Eberron.

Risia is a plane comprised primarily of ice. The very atmosphere freezes the lungs and steals away the breath. The average temperature on Risia is 0° Fahrenheit/-18 Celcius. On any given day, there is a 50% chance of extreme weather in the form of snow, sleet, hail, or a blizzard.

Risia is one of the planes with the shortest conterminous cycle with Eberron, doing so every five years. It is always in opposition to Fernia.

Test Server[edit]

This section is about a server that no longer exists in-game.  It has been replaced by Lamannia.
If you can verify that the server still exists, please edit this page and remove this template.

Risia was DDO's official test server from 2006 to 2008 when it was retired. It was later replaced by Lamannia.

This weekend, we will be opening the Risia Test Server, where you can checkout new content before it hits the live servers! Risia will open up on Friday, September 15 (2006) and will feature the newest content from the upcoming Stormreach Under Siege update! Risia will come online on Friday afternoon and be available until Monday, September 18 at 9:00 AM Eastern.

To help populate Risia, we have merged characters from four servers into it: Thelanis, Khyber, Argonessen and Fernia. This character data was captured on Tuesday, September 12, and will not reflect any progress made since this date.

Thelanis was used as the base server for this merge. In the event of name conflicts, characters from Thelanis will retain their names while characters from other servers will have their server name appended to their character name. So, for example, "Sporkfire" from Khyber will b erenamed "Sporkfire-Khyber", while "Sporkfire" from Thelanis will stay "Sporkfire".

If you don't have any characters on these servers, don't worry! For this weekend, all characters will gain 10 times the normal experiencefrom adventuring on Risia! You'll be part of the big leagues in no time!

We will use the Risia Test Server periodically in the future to allow customers with paid subscriptions the opportunity to preview new content and features in DDO. Please note that this is a test server and you may encounter game play and technical issues when playing. It may sometimes be necessary to erase characters from this server. Characters transferred to or created on Risia will not transfer back to any of the live servers. Turbine will offer limited Customer Service for this server, but you are encouraged to report any bugs that you find on it through the in-game bug-reporting tool. The DDO End User License Agreement, Terms of Service and Code of Conduct apply to this server ,just like the live servers.
