Development has been busy over the last month. We’ve seen both a new prestige class added, as well as a new sorcerer bloodline. The psionicist class is also well underway.
Our new prestige class is the Spellsword. A warrior that couples arcane magic with heavy armor, he is able to channel spells into his weapons that have a chance to be cast when his weapon hits.
Our new sorcerer bloodline is the Undead bloodline. With a number of necromantic abilities they are the go to class for those who would like to play a necromancy style caster. We have plans to add the Pale Master prestige class down the line, for even more necromantic fun.
We’re on the home stretch now with the upcoming psionicist class. The class will introduce over 90 new abilities and some new mechanics with psionics. We’re down to about 25 abilities left to code, and expect to have a testable version ready in the next week or two.
Our new builder Icculus has been busy, busy, busy. He’s come to utilize all of our building tools including scripting and quests. His zones are looking very detailed and well done, and they should be published into the game soon.
