The New Open Access Build (v0.5.11) is OUT!
18 Jun | 10:00 am

Based on the ton of feedback concerning initial difficulty and learning curve, we have listened to you, our players, and implemented Trade Tasks to make the initial experience smoother in the open-world campaign. While there, and because they are deeply intertwined, we also decided to include the brand-new Factions UI and the faction tier system. We were happy to see that everyone who tried it in the preview build loved it and we are also satisfied with the result. To top it off, we also have a long list of adjustments, fixes, and tweaks (see patch notes at the end of this post).

Passengers Revisited (Game Design Post)
11 Jun | 10:00 am

While working on Trade Tasks (see more here), we took the chance to revisit passengers and unified their currently existing UI with the new Task UI in the Journal since passengers are in fact Tasks both by definition and application.

The brand new passenger page shows all the associated stats, including (finally) the workforce the passenger provides or needs. For those passengers that reward faction reputation on arrival, you will now see the pretty new faction icons, too. Lastly, the expected tip upon fast arrival is also indicated.

Character Artwork - Dragon Mages
05 May | 10:00 am

'We do not worship the Dragons like you do your false Imperial Gods. We do not sacrifice to them or beg for their fickle blessings. Our Dragonlords are our paragons; a testament to what every being can aspire to and the source of the Flame that lives in all of us. That same Flame can burn your ass to crisp if you dare slander their name again.'

Project Update - Companion Combat AI Improvements
23 Apr | 10:00 am

Initially, we built Companion Combat without too much focus on the combat AI, knowing full well that it would be a massive task to code and having most of the combat features locked before we do so would make it overall a more efficient undertaking.

Location Artwork - Tor'Zag's Shelter
07 Apr | 10:00 am

Tor'Zag's Shelter is a vast, dark city in the belly of the Blackblood Mountains, carved out mostly by Imperials after obsidian became scarcer in the region and the fleeing armies of Warleader Tor'Zag, an Orc general, capitulated, leaving the tunnels beneath the mountain at the end of the Orc War. People who lost everything came here to share respite from the scorching sun of the Jagged Waste with traders who were looking to establish a way-station between Deven in the north and the Province in the south. Now, a couple of hundred years later, the Shelter is among the five greatest cities of the continent.

Character Poses - Finndurarth
24 Mar | 10:00 am

Finndurarth is an amazing asset to any comitatus because of her charisma, knack for diplomatic solutions, and upbeat spirit but when it comes to a battle, she is not a delicate flower at all. You probably want to place some sturdy meat-shield in front of her so that she can dish out unblockable magical damage to your foes or cast defensive spells to protect your Companions. Her Skills are versatile tools to be used in battle:

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.

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
