RTX's main mission is to celebrate Internet culture in a general way, but Shroud of the Avatar made a strong impression on this year's attendees. And with the game's PvP nearly ready for prime time (Release 8 launches this month), is it any wonder?
In other news:
The community continues to have an impact on the game as the development team this week took member Duke Violation's suggestion and decided to implement Open PvP for player towns.
Dame Lori and Sir Frank were awarded Orders of the New Britannia medals by Robot Lord British. You can watch the video on SotA's Facebook page.
Winter--er...that is PvP--is coming and this week Chris Spears hosted a special PvP edition of Hangout of the Avatar.
Spears also began public posts that track Release 8's PvP/Combat.
