Specific information about this server

    • Ikariam is currently using Greek Mortals wp and Mythological Creatures wp as names for the newer set of worlds (4546).
  • Ikariam uses a few special servers for the following reasons:
    • "Speed servers" (Discontinued) (not used often / reset after each session) - For when they need to test changes that occur at Higher levels of the game and would take too long at normal speed to reach.  These servers run at four times (4x) the normal speed when they are used.
    • "Test servers ( 1  / < 2  (Discontinued) /  3  (Internal use) /  4  (Internal use) /  5  (Internal use)] /  6  (Internal use)]" - For testing the beta wp patches before they go out to the live servers.
    • "War servers [ 1  (Discontinued) (reset after each round - 1 per language group) /  2  (Permanent - in each community)]" - Special servers run at three times (3x) the normal speed, allows Pillaging of gold and have a different set of rules compared to the normal game servers.

General information

The Lernaean Hydra or Hydra of Lerna (Λερναῖα Ὕδρα, Lernaîa Hýdra), more often known simply as the Hydra, is a serpentine wp water monster in Greek wp and Roman mythology  wp.  Its lair was the lake of Lerna  wp in the Argolid  wp, which was also the site of the myth of the Danaïdes  wp.  Lerna was reputed to be an entrance to the Underworld wp, and archaeology has established it as a sacred site older than Mycenaean wp Argos  wp.  In the canonical Hydra myth, the monster is killed by Herakles (Hercules) as the second of his Twelve Labors wp.

According to Hesiod  wp, the Hydra was the offspring of Typhon  wp and Echidna wp.  It had poisonous breath and blood so virulent that even its scent was deadly.  The Hydra possessed many heads wp, the exact number of which varies according to the source.  Later versions of the Hydra story add a regeneration wp feature to the monster: for every head chopped off, the Hydra would regrow two heads.  Heracles required the assistance of his nephew Iolaus  wp to cut off all of the monster's heads and burn the neck using sword and fire.
