Character Poses - Splinter
25 Feb | 10:00 am

Without a doubt, Splinters are (currently) among the most difficult enemies of Vagrus. Immense in size and weight, built of solid, living crystal, these creatures are among the toughest customers you can run into. A very high Armor and Vitality stat makes Splinters very difficult to destroy, and a decent Block value results in an occasional rise in Armor to top things off. Due to their unconventional crystal structure, they are also extremely difficult to affect with magic, except electricity and pure magical energy.

Manual Save (Game Design Post)
20 Feb | 10:00 am

We have thought long and hard about how to deal with manual saves in Vagrus, because there are a lot of complications stemming from certain game elements. Do we let players choose mid-combat? Do we let them save mid-Event? Is there a point to Event tests if manual saves scumming works? These are just a few of the many questions that have arisen.

Vagrus Creation (Game Design Post)
13 Feb | 10:00 am

One of the last big additions to Vagrus' Open World Campaign that is now coming very close to being released is the character creation sequence at the start of the game. That is the feature that allows you to customize and set up your own vagrus by selecting a variety of options in subsequent steps. To give a quick idea of the many amazing options, here's a little rundown:

Location Artwork - The Plains of Bone
11 Feb | 10:00 am

'What draws them to this place, I wonder. Is it the utter sadness that permeates this forsaken expanse? Does it call to them when they begin to feel the chill breath of death? Perhaps there is a wordless language spanning all species that speaks as the realm of Ahskul starts to beckon.'

Project Update - Chat Heads
06 Feb | 10:00 am

The decision to add the small portraits of Companions to the steps of Events where they appear was an easy one: it added a lot of character to the texts and was an easy addition due to the portraits being derived from the already existing art assets (idle combat images of said Companions).

But then in true Lost Pilgrims fashion we felt that this could become so much more if ALL major NPCs received a similar portrait, or 'chat head' in Events and so we started producing a few to see what they looked like. Most of these were based on friends to honor two decades of roleplaying together and they turned out so cool that we decided to open these up for Backers and influencers as well. So if you want your mug in the game as one of the many NPCs, here's the chance. :)

Creature Artwork - Sand Wyrm
04 Feb | 10:00 am

'...came from the farthest reaches of the vast expanse of Arenas Vorax and upon their defeat at the hands of Imperial forces - aided by the Sadirar tribes and the Dark Elves of Katundar - they retreated into that unknowable land of voracious sands, never to be seen again.'

- Excerpt from the Imperial Chronicles Volume XII

Crew Combat (Game Design Post)
30 Jan | 10:00 am

Crew Combat is the most common way you will handle violent conflicts as you roam the wastelands of the Riven Realms. We wanted to give you a rundown of the basic concepts here so that those interested might find some insights.

Disposition

Each Crew Combat encounter identifies the two sides as either the Attacker or the Defender. The player's comitatus can typically be the attacker when they raid small settlements or prey upon other travelers, while they are often found as the defender when getting accosted by monsters, outlaws, or worse.

Character Poses - Yrg Warrior
28 Jan | 10:00 am

Yrg Warriors are very tough enemies but luckily they are not encountered often. When they are, make sure you have the right Companions healed up and ready for a savage battle because these chitinous juggernauts give no quarter and won't stop until they are killed.
 
What makes Yrg Warriors difficult to destroy is their high Armor value (in addition to a large pool of Vitality) and good Resistances to effects. They are difficult to Stun or Bleed, and have a high Block value to add even more Armor against attacks. However, they are quite slow and due to their bulk they may not be able to move around much on the battlefield.
 
Both of their Skills are damage-oriented, though each of them has its special perks that make them even more dangerous:
 
Blade Arms: The Warrior attacks with one of its scythe-like arms then follows up with the other, so this Skill chains two attacks into one, but with separate Hit, Crit, and Damage rolls. Both attacks have a high damage potential as well as being difficult to Block.
 
Acid Spit: A ranged attack that penetrates Armor, Acid Spit hits for moderate damage but debuffs the target's Armor stat for the entire combat.
 
Yrg Warriors typically accompany their weaker kin but sometimes (if you are really unlucky) you will come across a contingent of these hardy killing machines by themselves. Whichever the case, you should be prepared for a very dangerous fight.

Butchering Mechanics (Video)
23 Jan | 10:00 am

Beasts of burden and mounts that a comitatus uses are large animals. They are the lifeblood of a traveling company, carrying people, cargo, and supplies on long journeys through desolate wastelands. Sometimes, however, they can literally become sustenance - in cases when you run out of supplies or when there are not enough workers to tend to them. Still, these creatures are usually very valuable but sometimes butchering them can be the difference between life and death.
