The latest Shroud of the Avatar newsletter has arrived hot off the press that includes the usual boatload of information. Of particular note this week, Portalarium has revealed Jannaford, a new scene devs have been preparing for Release 23. One of the newest members of the team, Richard Matey, has been instrumental in the level design of Jannaford as is evidenced by the great looking screenshots.
In addition to designing the area, Founder Developer rewards and above includes the ability for players to name an NPC in the game. Backers at these levels can submit a request to have an NPC in Jannaford named according to their specifications and a submission form has been released listing the necessary information for potential inclusion.
First, some brief notes:
- NPC visual customization, as you may have noticed, is still at a very early stage in development. Right now for the backers who want to be added to Jaanaford, we cannot offer any visual customization options beyond our standard gallery of NPC models. If you would like to have input over the visual customization of your NPC, please wait for further releases when we can offer this.
- Response to this will be on a first-come first-served basis for each call for responses. Jaanaford in particular is a small town (about the size of Braemar) so there will not be many NPCs. If your NPC doesn’t appear in Jaanaford, feel free to respond again thereafter. We have quite a few towns and cities to populate! (There may even be more towns this month...)
- When responding, please list a first and second choice for profession; all of these are going to be very limited in number.
- NPCs for Jaanaford must be human.
