  9. Greetings Fellow Avatars! Here’s what we have for you in this week’s edition of Update of the Avatar: News Announcements Player Made Dungeon Update Release 56 Livestream YouTube & Stretch Goal Tracking Change Shroud of the Avatar Rewards Program Cosmos Double XP Weekends Weekend Flash Sale: Everything Elven Upcoming Events Calendar Community Updates The Grand Duke Event The Grand Duke Event Sale Final Day! Meretz: Win a Topiary Town Dragon Statue Meretz: Win a Pair of SOTACON 2018 Tickets! Project to Support:Underworld Ascendant Resources: Players Helping Players Player Made Dungeon Update In the past week we have had design kickoff meetings for several game systems including Fishing (Phase 2) and Player Made Dungeons. We will be posting more about Fishing (Phase 2) soon! In exciting news we have been able to make faster progress on Player Made Dungeons than expected due to how much it uses underlying systems like our basements. While we had originally planned this for an Episode 2 feature we now believe we can have a version of the system up and running as soon as Q4 of this year without affecting our work on other systems like Fishing! To kick off the upcoming launch of this exciting player made content we are going make available five dungeon entrances, along with five static example dungeons in Release 57. One dungeon entrance and one example dungeon will be craftable, four will be purchasable from the Add On Store. The included static example dungeons, complete with creatures and loot, will vary in point size and difficulty level and can be used until the player built dungeon feature goes live. When the player built dungeons feature goes live in Q4 2018, the example dungeons will vanish and be replaced by an entry room but the player will receive the blueprints to all the pieces needed to rebuild the dungeon (some assembly required!). Player built dungeons will be expandable and customizable with in-game craftable rooms and/or Add On Store rooms. As a bonus the Add On Store Dungeons include a Unity asset pack of dungeon rooms and hallways that you can experiment with using Unity which is free for non-professionals to download! Tomb Entrance plus 50 Point Dungeon (craftable) This sarcophagus can be crafted to use as the entrance to your dungeon. There will also be a craftable 50 point example static dungeon, complete with creatures and loot, for low level players that can be used until the player built dungeon feature goes live. Ancient Tome Dungeon Entrance plus 50 Point Dungeon This Ancient Tome Dungeon Entrance Eternal Pattern will allow you to modify your basic craftable dungeon entrance to look like a magical book, much like the one that leads to the Compendium of Pain and Suffering. While compact in size the striking visual effects emanating from the book will be sure to draw attention. The included dungeon is a 50 point example static dungeon, complete with creatures and loot, for low level players that can be used until the player built dungeon feature goes live. Magic Mirror Dungeon Entrance plus 75 Point Dungeon This Magic Mirror Entrance Eternal Pattern will allow you to modify your basic craftable dungeon entrance to look like a Magic Mirror much like what is found in the Isle of Storms and New You Shops. This compact entrance easily fits indoors or outdoors. The included dungeon is a 75 point example static dungeon, complete with creatures and loot, aimed at mid-level players. When the player built dungeon feature goes live in Ruined Stone Arch Dungeon Entrance plus 100 Point Dungeon This Ruined Stone Arch Dungeon Entrance Eternal Pattern will allow you to modify your basic craftable dungeon entrance to look like the stone arches that indicate the exits in many scenes. While placeable both indoors and outdoors this is a large entrance so be sure you have plenty of floorspace and high ceilings if you are planning on using this indoors! The included dungeon is a 100 point example static dungeon, complete with creatures and loot, aimed at high-level players. Circle of Stones Rift Dungeon Entrance plus 125 Point Dungeon This Circle of Stones Dungeon Entrance Eternal Pattern will allow you to modify your basic craftable dungeon entrance to look like a circle of stones with a magical portal in the center (much like the Lunar Rifts). While placeable both indoors and outdoors this is a large entrance so be sure you have plenty of floorspace and high ceilings if you are planning on using this indoors! The included dungeon is a 125 point example static dungeon, complete with creatures and loot, aimed at end-game players. Do not expect to conquer this place holder dungeon without help from some friends! Release 56 Livestream YouTube & Stretch Goal Tracking Change In case you missed our Release 56 Livestream last Friday it is now up on YouTube for your viewing pleasure! Also a reminder we have updated the way we track stretch goals so you have until midnight tonight for another chance to get us further along on the R56 stretch goals by purchasing something during our 12 hours of sales and stretch goal tracking which now happens every Friday of the month versus just once (or sometimes twice) as we have done in the past.

We will then track the totals until midnight of that Friday and then repeat for each Friday. This will give us an entire month to build up to the stretch goals! During the weekly one-hour Community Livestream we will remind everyone about the stretch goals but those livestreams will remain in the same format: 30 minutes of news and then 30 minutes on a topic (housing, new scene, new feature, etc.).

  10. Grand Duke's Tournament - Final Tournament Plan View the full article
  11. Hello everyone, this is Asclepius, with the fifth chapter of a wonderful story from Belladonna Rose, entitled Black Rose Chronicles Background music by Smartsound Chapter 5 Waving with a small smile Edvard then turned and walked back up to the bridge. Standing in the middle he watched as the boat made its way down river and as the sun became hidden behind the mountain. Strange sounds started up again throughout the forested area. Soon the creatures would be on the prowl again. Charlotte curled up as close to Bella as she could. It was hard to row the craft with the child nestled against her so closely but she did her best. Edvard did not lie about the dangers of the darkness. She could hear the moans and screams coming from the river banks. Rustling bushes and brush as things seemed to make their way out into the dark. This alone made her want to row faster but she was beginning to falter in her strength. She was so tired. Much had happened to her this day. No time to rest. Must get to Soltown. Where is Soltown? Exhausted she kept rowing praying with every stroke that she did not fall asleep or worse. Hours in the darkness eventually became less as the sun began to creep up through the trees. She had been at sea so long that she forgot how long it took for the sun to rise. Having not been on land much of late she needed to get her bearings again for life on land. The river began to narrow putting the banks much closer to the boat. This worried her a bit…but the noises from the forest became less and less with the rising sun. Up ahead she saw the faint light of torches. Light that will soon be extinguished once the sun was out. And there …..a dock. This must be the place. Please let this be the place. A man in strange armor stood at the end of the dock. Turning his head he saw the boat and waved them forward. As if she was not doing that already. Bumping along the edge of the dock the man reached down and gained hold pulling them up closer. He pulled the tether from inside the boat and tied it to a post. Reaching down he put his hand out to help her onto the docks. She waved him off and hoisted the child up to him. “Take her please. We have just come from Solace Bridge. Edvard bade me to bring here here to her mother. I am Belladonna Rose, the Avatar.” Blinking she was not sure if this was how she was supposed to introduce herself or not. No one said otherwise how she was to do so. No matter. Titles were not that important save one. And seems that one is long lost. “By the stars. It is true. Another Outlander has come to help. Thank the stars. I am Captain Stanley and this is Soltown. I am in charge here til Commander Cugel says otherwise.” Bella pulled herself up on the docks and tried her best to stand tall. Fatigue was winning over for sure now and apparently the Captain saw this. “Lets get this wee one to her mother. I know her well enough. She is across the road in the refugee camp. Abigail will be happy to see her and will want to thank you personally.” Bella honestly could care less about thanks right now. All she wanted was hot food and sleep. Hopefully this woman will take pity on her and give that much. Smiling softly she followed Stanley across the road to the camp. Looking about she saw several tents and people milling about a roaring fire. Many children scampered about playing at being guards. From the looks of things they got away from Solace Bridge with barely the clothes on their backs. Which she knew how that felt. That was all she had. The refugees saw Stanley and ran to him….huddling around him like vultures. He pushed his way past them to the far tent. A tall woman came to the entrance of the tent and gasped as Stanley approached. Handing the child to her she hugged the girl tightly. Crying out to the skies she turned away with the child. Many of the others cheered and applauded. Among their own despair they were happy that at least one of them had some happiness returned to them. Stanley went to the fire and gave a short account to the people. Telling them of Bella’s journey from Solace Bridge. He told them he had news from Edvard and was going to send a dispatch to Cugel in Ardoris. They were saddened by the news. Solace Bridge had fallen. Now they had to decide what to do and where to go. Many had already left. Making way to other places throughout the lands. Some to smaller towns some to outlying areas. The pilgrimage from Solace Bridge for some would lead them far and wide. Some would stay close just for the memory or just because they had lost all hope. Seeing this in their faces caused a pang of regret in Bella. But that is what the Oracle said. She said that she would feel regret, sorrow and many other emotions as she travelled the lands. Forsaken Love. This is the path she was on. To restore Love to the people. How the hell was she supposed to do this. She stood by the fire as the refugees walked by patting her softly on the back or giving her a quick embrace for what she had done. As they did so she watched the woman…Abigail..tuck her daughter under a blanket on a rickety cot. The woman turned and motioned for Bella to come to her. Walking into the tent she saw there was very little here. A sack which was probably all she owned. The woman fumbled in her pocket and reached out to Bella. Taking her hand she placed a handful of gold pieces in her hand. Looking down at the pittance she looked back at the lady. Sorrow and what looked like shame crossed her face. “Tis all I have to offer M’lady for your service. You brought my daughter back to me when I all but thought she was lost to me. There is nothing of my husband I assume…not that I thought there would be.” “Nay M’ lady. I do not know of your husband. I do not know much of anything as I am new here. I was sent to Solace Bridge and that is where I found Edvard. We then found the child and I was sent here. Other than that I am as lost as you seem to be.” The lady looked at Bella with astonished eyes. “Outlander…Avatar. The one the prophecy speaks of. You have done more than you could ever know. Please take the gold and make use of it. Armor, weapons whatever will aide you. It is the least I can do.” Bella smiled and took two coins and gave the rest back to Abigail. “Please…take the remainder of this gold. Make your way out of here. Make your way to a better life if you can M’lady. For the sake of the child.” Nodding and smiling the lady took the gold and put it back in her pocket. Little that it was it might be enough for food to get her and her child elsewhere. She would figure the rest out later.

Project to Support: REEF Resources: Players Helping Players Shooter Jennings Album Release Party Recap This past Tuesday, July 31st, Shooter Jennings treated all of us to a preview of his newest album, “Shooter”, at a special album release party in the player owned town of Ordinis Mortis. For a brief time when Release 56 launched there were multiple “Shooters” scattered around Novia who had a special quest. The first 25 players who completed the quest got on the secret guest list to get backstage at the event and received prizes directly from the real Shooter Jennings. Those prizes were Shooter heraldry items and wax cylinders of tracks from Shooter’s album. While the prizes were being handed out DJ Darkstarr spun tunes on Avatars Radio. After the prizes were handed out everyone got to hear the new album which releases on August 10th and then DJ Darkstarr played spun more tunes for another couple of hours while everyone danced. NOTE: Everyone who completed the quest before the event also received a couple of Shooter prizes in their in-game mailboxes courtesy of Serafina and Vas Corp Por. Shooter Heraldry Art: The event itself was held in a basement decorated amazingly by a crew led by Minerva and included the efforts of Cambria Stormlin, Shimizu, Griffler, Wind Silvermoon, Gaelis Tragan, Karrin Murphy, Sindariya Tyelma, Gurney, Arianna, Drake Aedus, Rambo, and Luca Xante. Above ground there was a maze that spelled out Shooter and before the event started there was a line that built up (just like a real concert!). Here are some pictures from the event: The maze: The line to get in (yes even Lord British was waiting!): The party: Shooter on his throne: Release 56 Livestream Goals Updated Our Release 56 Livestream was another full afternoon of deep dives, answered questions, and prizes!

The Grand Duke Event & PVP Tournament [From a Forum Post by “Cerus”] Chapter 1 The Grand Duke & the Visitor A Grand Duke, a noble man. Someone with high standards. He has always been a man of great wealth. It is said that there were times when he walked through the streets of towns across New Britannia scattering gold and Obsidian Crowns to show off his wealth. Some folks saw him as a generous man and loved him for that, while others envied him for his riches or even loathed him for his apparent arrogance. Recently, a mysterious traveler visited him in his domain. The traveler apparently sought to do business with him. A trade of a special kind… Chapter 2 The Deal The Grand Duke made a deal and obtained some land deeds from the mysterious traveler. To his surprise, the traveler didn’t ask for a single coin. “Thou canst hold these deeds for free,” he spoke. “But thou must do something for me in return…” Some of the deeds were not to remain with the wealthy man. Instead, they were to be given to strongest and fiercest Avatars of New Britannia. And it was now the Duke’s task to find them those worthy few. And he accepted the task without further argument… Chapter 3 The Grand Duke’s Tournament A noble envoy was sent out to spread the Duke’s announcement. “Hear Ye! The Grand Duke generously announces that he is willing to give away 3 of his precious land deeds to noble and strong Avatars! But not just any Avatars! Only those who can truly show their muster!” “The Grand Duke is therefore organizing a Tournament, in which Avatars shall compete against each other in teams. And he will reward the victorious groups of Avatars for their strength and glory. [From a Forum Post by “Cerus”] The Grand Duke’s Tournament This Event is organized by Portalarium and Travian Games and supported by members of the Shroud of the Avatar Community! No purchases necessary. The Grand Duke hereby announces the rules for the big tournament, to find the strongest Avatars of New Britannia (as requested by the mysterious traveler) ​ TOURNAMENT SETTING: This event is made for Groups of 5 (Party PvP). The matches will take place in a 5 vs 5 setting. The tournament will take place if (at least) 8 teams submit. Avatars of all adventurer levels are encouraged to participate! If sufficient teams of different adventurer levels apply, separate leagues (high-level, mid-level, low-level) might be created with adjusted prizes. This depends on the number of participating teams as well as the variety of adventurer levels. Exact details such as schedule, leagues and pairings will be announced once the registration period is closed, on August 1 (We will try to schedule all matches on weekends). TOURNAMENT PROCEDURE: The tournament will begin with qualification matches (group games). Each team will fight at least 2 matches before either being eliminated or proceeding to the next rounds. Those qualification matches will take place in an Arena (location to be disclosed) on Saturday, August 4 at 1:00PM CT (20:00 CEST). The matches will take place on several days (most likely on weekends) and in different locations. All locations provide space and facilities for spectators to watch and cheer for their teams. The final matches (KO-System), including the grand final with the 2 best teams, will take place on the weekend August 10 – August 12. Exact times and location to be announced after the qualification rounds. The Grand Duke and his associate, the mysterious traveler, will be there to congratulate the wining team. PARTICIPATION REQUIREMENTS: In order to participate, get together in a Team of 5 warriors. Each player may participate in one team only. Pick a name for your Team. Teams are encouraged to wear a consistent team color. Optional: During the tournament, all teams and the score-status will be published on the SotA Community platforms. We would like to display your team with your individual team emblem. If you like that idea, use the Blazon Builder to create an individual Blazon for your team and send a capture of the emblem to @Cerus, @Katla, @Ikas or @Menja (This is not mandatory). Once you have a team of five Champions, register your team <HERE> until August 1.

Portalarium and Travian Games may disqualify any member or team for fraud attempts, bug exploits, use of third-party-software and/or breach of Community Rules. Every team and warrior may use any gear or item during the battle. Each team may appoint 1 standby warrior as substitute in case one of the team members is unable to attend a match. If multiple team members are unable to attend a match at the given time, the team may still proceed with a reduced number of warriors. The search for the strongest Avatars of Novia has started. May the best Team win! ​ Good Luck, Avatars The Grand Duke Event Sale In support of the Grand Duke Tournament all Dyes and Heraldry Wearable items are on sale so that your team can show their colors and possibly a team sigil!

It will be held on Saturday, July 28, 2018 starting at 12 pm (noon) central time/New Britannian time and lasting an hour. It is added on the Avatar’s Circle community calendar for easy time zone conversion at http://avatarscircle.com/community-events/ Plus it is in your in-game Events book. Greagoir Pendragon will be active 30 minutes before the event and during the event. We are traveling to the town of Racuhbier Platz, nested in Central Brittany and Brittany Alleys. Are you with us? Purpose: The Welcome Quest is a quest for all people to see many towns and establishments. It is created as a way for people to visit many player-ran locations. It involves each town and establishment to give the quest person some information and then instructions to go to the next location (a town or establishment) to do something. The path may be sequential from place to place or in parallel to multiple places at the same time. The goal is for towns and establishments to showcase their places, educate the people, and work with other player-ran towns/establishments. We are proud to be the first player-ran quest in SotA! We do it for all of you. More information is located at SotaWiki. Welcome Torch changes – testing and answers due to burnout With Release 38, all torches changed physically. The durability started to decrease when the torch is held onto. This change also affected the Welcome Torch you receive from the Welcome Quest. With Release 41 you now can repair your own Welcome Torches with a carpentry repair kit and a carpentry table. Win a Pair of SOTACON 2018 Tickets!

  17. We were toying with a different list of stretch goals for the R56 livestream tomorrow. Idea would be to take the same visual effect we used to make the Aether creatures and make weapons and decorations that use that same visual style (versus items with the sun and moon symbol). We are even thinking about making a dye that makes a similar visual effect. Here's what the alternative list would look like. Would love to know if you all think this list is more exciting that the original list?... Alternative R56 Livestream Stretch Goals? View the full article

In case you missed the livestream where we revealed all sorts of amazing things about Episode 2 here is the YouTube version for your viewing pleasure: Shooter Jennings “Shooter” Album Release Party! You are invited to another historic album premiere inside the realm of Shroud of the Avatar! Rolling Stone lists Shooter Jennings’ latest album: “Shooter”, which releases on August 10, as one of the most anticipated albums of 2018! For his latest album, the follow-up to his adventurous tribute to Giorgio Moroder, Countach (For Giorgio), country-rock-electronica mad scientist Shooter Jennings looked to his outlaw lineage, cutting an album of stripped-down classic country in the vein of his dad Waylon and one of his heroes, Hank Williams Jr. He also returned to where it all began, re-teaming with Dave Cobb, who produced Jennings’ 2005 debut, Put the ‘O’ Back in Country – the first album the Grammy-winning Cobb ever produced too. Simply titled Shooter, the LP will be released sometime this year via Cobb’s Low Country Sound imprint on Elektra. Says Jennings, “It’s the most country album I’ve ever done.” J.H. The event will kickoff through a series of quests that will appear in Release 56 which goes live on Thursday July 26. The quests will lead to the party at 7:00 PM CDT on July 31st inside Shroud of the Avatar, in the Player Owned Town of Ordinis Mortis. The first players to collect the clues and finish the quest will receive prizes from Shooter himself! Those prizes will include exclusive items with Shooter’s heraldry in the game (armor, brewing casks, etc), wax cylinders with songs from Shooter’s new album, and framed art of Shooter’s heraldry that they can decorate their home with. At the party you will get an advance listen of the new album, among other festivities! Shooter has a long history with Shroud of the Avatar. It all started when he decided to have the World Premiere of his album Countach in the game a couple of years ago! Shooter said about the event, “Having created a system where you can not only listen to streaming radio inside the game, but also having the ability to collect wax cylinders with audio stored on them which you can play on in-game phonographs, it seemed like a no-brainer to be able to share music inside Shroud of the Avatar. So I suggested we do a listening party in the game.” One news outlet dubbed it “…arguably the weirdest gaming event of all time.” He followed that up by donating wax cylinders of the album, album cover art, and other items to our Breast Cancer Make A Difference Store He backed up this charitable work by donating items to and participating in a Think Pink Streamathon to raise funds for breast cancer which raised over $8000. He even played our Launch Event this March at the Bob Bullock Museum! So join our longtime friend and collaborator for another night to remember on July 31 at 7 PM CDT and hear the new album “Shooter”!!

The Grand Duke Event & PVP Tournament [From a Forum Post by “Cerus”] Chapter 1 The Grand Duke & the Visitor A Grand Duke, a noble man. Someone with high standards. He has always been a man of great wealth. It is said that there were times when he walked through the streets of towns across New Britannia scattering gold and Obsidian Crowns to show off his wealth. Some folks saw him as a generous man and loved him for that, while others envied him for his riches or even loathed him for his apparent arrogance. Recently, a mysterious traveler visited him in his domain. The traveler apparently sought to do business with him. A trade of a special kind… Chapter 2 The Deal The Grand Duke made a deal and obtained some land deeds from the mysterious traveler. To his surprise, the traveler didn’t ask for a single coin. “Thou canst hold these deeds for free,” he spoke. “But thou must do something for me in return…” Some of the deeds were not to remain with the wealthy man. Instead, they were to be given to strongest and fiercest Avatars of New Britannia. And it was now the Duke’s task to find them those worthy few. And he accepted the task without further argument… Chapter 3 The Grand Duke’s Tournament A noble envoy was sent out to spread the Duke’s announcement. “Hear Ye! The Grand Duke generously announces that he is willing to give away 3 of his precious land deeds to noble and strong Avatars! But not just any Avatars! Only those who can truly show their muster!” “The Grand Duke is therefore organizing a Tournament, in which Avatars shall compete against each other in teams. And he will reward the victorious groups of Avatars for their strength and glory. [From a Forum Post by “Cerus”] The Grand Duke’s Tournament This Event is organized by Portalarium and Travian Games and supported by members of the Shroud of the Avatar Community! No purchases necessary. The Grand Duke hereby announces the rules for the big tournament, to find the strongest Avatars of New Britannia (as requested by the mysterious traveler) ​ TOURNAMENT SETTING: This event is made for Groups of 5 (Party PvP). The matches will take place in a 5 vs 5 setting. The tournament will take place if (at least) 8 teams submit. Avatars of all adventurer levels are encouraged to participate! If sufficient teams of different adventurer levels apply, separate leagues (high-level, mid-level, low-level) might be created with adjusted prizes. This depends on the number of participating teams as well as the variety of adventurer levels. Exact details such as schedule, leagues and pairings will be announced once the registration period is closed, on August 1 (We will try to schedule all matches on weekends). TOURNAMENT PROCEDURE: The tournament will begin with qualification matches (group games). Each team will fight at least 2 matches before either being eliminated or proceeding to the next rounds. Those qualification matches will take place in an Arena (location to be disclosed) on Saturday, August 4 at 1:00PM CT (20:00 CEST). The matches will take place on several days (most likely on weekends) and in different locations. All locations provide space and facilities for spectators to watch and cheer for their teams. The final matches (KO-System), including the grand final with the 2 best teams, will take place on the weekend August 10 – August 12. Exact times and location to be announced after the qualification rounds. The Grand Duke and his associate, the mysterious traveler, will be there to congratulate the wining team. PARTICIPATION REQUIREMENTS: In order to participate, get together in a Team of 5 warriors. Each player may participate in one team only. Pick a name for your Team. Teams are encouraged to wear a consistent team color. Optional: During the tournament, all teams and the score-status will be published on the SotA Community platforms. We would like to display your team with your individual team emblem. If you like that idea, use the Blazon Builder to create an individual Blazon for your team and send a capture of the emblem to @Cerus, @Katla, @Ikas or @Menja (This is not mandatory). Once you have a team of five Champions, register your team <HERE> until August 1.

Every team and warrior may use any gear or item during the battle. Each team may appoint 1 standby warrior as substitute in case one of the team members is unable to attend a match. If multiple team members are unable to attend a match at the given time, the team may still proceed with a reduced number of warriors. The search for the strongest Avatars of Novia has started.

It will be held on Saturday, July 28, 2018 starting at 12 pm (noon) central time/New Britannian time and lasting an hour. It is added on the Avatar’s Circle community calendar for easy time zone conversion at http://avatarscircle.com/community-events/ Plus it is in your in-game Events book. Greagoir Pendragon will be active 30 minutes before the event and during the event. We are traveling to the town of Racuhbier Platz, nested in Central Brittany and Brittany Alleys. Are you with us? Purpose: The Welcome Quest is a quest for all people to see many towns and establishments. It is created as a way for people to visit many player-ran locations. It involves each town and establishment to give the quest person some information and then instructions to go to the next location (a town or establishment) to do something. The path may be sequential from place to place or in parallel to multiple places at the same time. The goal is for towns and establishments to showcase their places, educate the people, and work with other player-ran towns/establishments. We are proud to be the first player-ran quest in SotA! We do it for all of you. More information is located at SotaWiki. Welcome Torch changes – testing and answers due to burnout With Release 38, all torches changed physically. The durability started to decrease when the torch is held onto. This change also affected the Welcome Torch you receive from the Welcome Quest. With Release 41 you now can repair your own Welcome Torches with a carpentry repair kit and a carpentry table. Win a Pair of SOTACON 2018 Tickets!

  27. We have to restart Release 56 and rollback to the game save state before we launched it this morning. We unfortunately skipped a step during the launch this morning and did not run a data migration for brewing which means that all brewing items might be in a corrupted state unless we rollback and relaunch. We apologize for the interruption. View the full article
