The World of Aventia is an online persistent world that has been up and running since Wednesday, December 25, 2002. Originally created by Ninina, the gameworld development was quickly taken over by Jason de Cordoba, a.k.a. Oclair Monanari, who at the time was hosting the project. In 2009, Jason de Cordoba had to shut down Aventia as a result of losing his host. He turned over the modules to the community. Ralt Gaither generously volunteered to provide a new host for Aventia.

Aventia is now being developed by members of its community, including Ralt Gaither, Grench and Kenquinn.

Aventia is a huge persistent world of vastly powerful characters, nefarious villains, and hideous creatures. It offers great features, such as post-level 40 player character advancement, PvP battlegrounds and clans, tournament arenas, guilds for classes, player pick pocket protection, and more.

The Gondolyn server is no longer connected to Aventia as it was in the past. The server vault is now separate and is moderated Oclair.

The Riddle of Steel
Fire and Wind come from the Sky, from the Gods of the Sky.
But your God is Crom, and he lives in the Earth.

Once Giants lived in the Earth, Conan,
and in the darkness of chaos, they fooled Crom,
and took from him the enigma of Steel.

Crom was angered and the Earth shook,
and Fire and Wind struck down these giants,
and threw their bodies onto the waters.

But in their rage,
the Gods forgot the secret of Steel
and left it on the battlefield.

And we who found it, are just men,
Not Gods, Not Giants, just men.

The Secret of Steel had always carried with it a mystery,
you must discover its secret Conan, you must learn its discipline,

for no one, no one on this earth can you trust,
not men, not women, not beasts,

*lifts sword*, this you can trust
