Shroud of the Avatar Pre-Alpha R5 has been released! Join me as we look at all the new features this iteration brings and I share some tips to help you get the most out of it in the shortest amount of time.

Overview Includes:
New overland map view, early skill-based combat, linear lighting, new creatures, Kingsport Sewers, compass, dialog journal, housing, and more!

Finally, if you have a friend who is already a Shroud of the Avatar backer and you are thinking of backing the game as well, make sure you use their referral code during the sign-up process. This will increase their in-game pledge amount in the game.



will add some screenies later.

Shroud Of The Avatar: Town Stone Basement Walk-through
Published on Apr 29, 2014
This is the Town Stone Basements in Shroud of the Avatar. Lord level pledges receive a 1-Story Town Stone Basement as part of their pledge reward. The basement shown here is a 4-Story version, but should give you an idea of the size and configuration of each level. If you want to see this particular basement for yourself you can find it behind the counter of Fire Lotus' tavern in Owl's head.

NOTE: This is pre-alpha code. The actual game doesn't come out until December of 2014

Final chapter is now available

RELEASE 7: June 26 – 29, 2014
3D Overworld Map System: We are switching our dual scale navigation system from the 2D version you have seen so far to a 3D version more like what we showed during Kickstarter. This initial release will mainly be about the visuals so players will still be represented as markers and there will be no random encounters (see below for which releases these features will come online).

Player to Player secure trade: Did you discover something cool you wish to give your friend? Need to share some potions with a party member? Did you craft something amazing you want to sell? Secure trade is the answer and will allow you to make exchanges of goods between you and other players.

Water Lots: We will be adding water lot functionality to the game.

NPC Collision / Responsiveness: We will be spending time on polishing NPC collision and general movement responsiveness to combat things like NPC standing inside you, spreading out when attacking, avoiding players while moving, etc.

Animals: Currently all our animals (bears, wolves, etc.) are purchased assets and the skinning, rigging, and animations for them is not meeting our quality standards, so we are going to reskin and rig them so that we can redo their animations.

Player Housing Built-in Lighting: We have gotten consistent feedback that it is too hard to get player placed lights in the right configuration to really light the player houses. So starting with R7 we will begin placing built in lights (chandeliers, sconces, etc.) to provide a base lighting level for all the player houses. These lights will turn on and off just like regular lights and can be augmented with player placed lights as well.

Scenes: A few new scenes will come online including Player Towns on Islands (to feature water lots) and perhaps the first scene on the mainland (The Graf Gem Mines).

Crafting: We will be adding more ingredients (spider silk, gems, precious metals, etc.) as well as instructions on how to do crafting in the recipe book itself. New recipes will also come online

Lighting Fine-Tuning: We still have some work to do in order to get the balance right between bright day and dark night.

Character Faces and Skins: We want to update at least one of the player faces and also do more polish work on the skin.

64 Bit Build: For those of you running 64 bit OS on your system we will now release 64 bit builds (in addition to the 32 Bit Builds) so you can address more system memory

Promotional Trailer: We are excited to be a featured game at the Plantronics booth at E3. In support of that and our continued fundraising we are working on an updated trailer (our last one was at the 6 month mark) that will show off gameplay and provide a few sneak peeks of the intro cinematic. As mentioned in update 73, Bill Johnson, aka The Guardian, will be doing the voiceover.

New Pledge Rewards, New Pledge Tiers: On Friday June 6th we will be announcing some new pledge rewards, some new pledge tiers and a new type of store

Some Founder Rewards (weapons):

This historical title laid the groundwork for the Ultima series, the legendary role-playing saga that grew with the computer gaming medium, giving joy, wonderment, and adventure while preaching knightly virtues and the value of imagination to generations of gamers, decade after decade. It's often referred to as Ultima 0, while its creator is now - and shall be forever - known to the gamer folk as Lord British. In 2008 - 29 years after selling the first copy of Akalabeth packed in a ziploc bag complete with photocopied manual - Richard Garriott de Cayeux (as he now calls himself in our mundane dimension) fullfiled one of his life-long dreams and followed his father's footsteps. He visited the International Space Station, becoming the 6th private space-traveler (that we know of) in the history of mankind. Then, soon after the safe landing, he began his pursuit of another dream: to keep alive the legacy of the world he fathered in the form of its spiritual successor, Shroud of the Avatar.
