September and October have been busy months, but mainly behind the scenes. We are happy to announce a new prestige class, ‘Eldritch Knight’ and the introduction of our fast travel, carriages, system.
Eldritch knights are a fun class that combines melee combat and spell casting. One of their most powerful abilities is the spell critical. When an eldritch knight of sufficient level scores a critical hit in melee combat, they can then cast any spell in their repertoire instantly! Eldritch knights also gain warrior bonus feats at certain levels, and each eldritch knight level will increase your arcane spell level as well, in determining how many spell slots you have and what your maximum spell level is.
Our new fast-travel carriage system is live as well, as an abbreviated version of what’s to come. Currently there are a number of carriage stops on our main continent, where the bulk of our main quest line quests are located. For a nominal cost in gold, one and one’s party can jump on a carriage and reach their destination a short time later. Currently this system works alongside our ‘teleporter’, which is a device all players get that allows them to teleport to any zone. However, not far down the road, the teleporter will be removed, and we’ll add the rest of the carriage stops, and connect some more of our existing areas to the wilderness map.
As mentioned, we have a lot cooking right now behind the scenes. As a little teaser, we’ll say that the carriage system is going to be greatly expanded, both combat and non-combat, random encounters will be added to the wilderness, and a new hunt system will be added, where small parties can team up to defeat strong ‘boss-type’ mobs in the wilderness, and receive hunt trophies that can be turned in to enhance weapons, armour and trinkets (rings,neck-pieces and bracers). We expect these to be live in the next 2-3 weeks, and we’ll post again when they are!
In the meantime, here’s the entire change log:
