Re: Update 6 Jun 2018

In many ways, this is more or less a quality of life update, as well as an update in preparation for at least one new major feature. I appreciate your patience while I get some of that stuff ready; it ended up being a bit more ambitious of an endeavor than I realized at the time. What will be affect...

Re: Update 6 May 2018

Another major goal of this update is to deal with Enirra and the religion surrounding Her. In some ways, Enirra has been a difficult deity for some to approach, because of some of its past characters and artifice. I've spent a significant amount of time during this update cycle rewriting the primary...

Re: Update 6 May 2018

Scholars have some general changes and specific ones. To begin broadly, scholars have long suffered from essentially being tethered to a staff. While this makes sense in the classical fantasy vision, it has some notable limitations when dealing with the way our game is actually designed. It, in effe...

Re: Update 6 May 2018

Fighter is one of the oldest of Avendar's classes, inherited from Merc/ROM. This is in most ways to its detriment; the theory of those games was slightly different for fighter than it is for us. In the past, we have attempted to upgrade or retrofit fighter to make it better in the overall, but in my...

Re: Update 6 May 2018

Hello everyone, it's been a little while since the last patch, but rest assured, we are still working on things. This is what I would consider a "reconciliation" patch, in that it intends to address a series of issues that could or should have been part of previous updates (had everything gone as pl...

Re: Update 29 Jan 2018

Finally, houses have had some adjustments, including a new entry in to the house battle. We'll start with the old, before getting into the new. Many skills and spells of extant houses have been adjusted, changing their level of acquisition, their order in terms of stones required, or their actual fu...

Re: Update 29 Jan 2018

Naturalists have a new member class, barbarian, under their umbrella. This was a fairly easy choice to make as barbarian already contained a significant skill overlap with ranger. This adjusts the balance to three mentalists, three rogues, three warriors, three naturalists, and six scholars and temp...

Re: Update 29 Jan 2018

All scholars now receive a new spell, scan. This is a scholar basic akin to armor or locate object, and provides the caster with the opportunity to evaluate the relative power of the target, including their immunities, resistances, and weaknesses. It has bothered me for a long time that this data wa...
