I just came across this New Trailer for Shroud of the Avatar by Travian Games and I'm sharing it to you guys here in

I'm sure it's not a very popular thing to say specially here in but I really truly enjoy playing this game.

In any case, here is the link to the New Trailer.

By the way, you can play Shroud of the Avatar completely free through it's Free Trial. So, give it a try and see you in New Britannia.

The Wolves Den (Screenshot Contest Entry)

The Wolves Den

Sitting back, relaxing and enjoying the hot ICE TUB. It's cool yet it's warm! ^_^

The Wolves Den

Decorated with mostly crafted decorations. Paintings were bought from the Decoration Merchant NPC and the Ice Tub is a Telethon Reward. No Add-On Store Items were used in decorating this Row Stone & Timber 1-Story Basement.


The Hunt

Either buying decorations from other players or hunting the materials to craft them, hunting the ones you want or need is just one of the things that make decorating your homes fun.

Killed a few Mountain Trolls in the Snowy Mountains Road Encounter located near the entrance/exit to Perennial Coast. I got one Troll Head in the process which I did not use because I already have a few Mounted Troll Heads available. LOL!


The Craft

Crafting takes a lot of time and materials. If you have a lot of Game Gold then it's easier and faster to buy the decorations you need from vendors owned by your fellow Avatars.

I spent a few hours crafting. Fortunately, some of the decorations that I needed were already available in my storage. So, I just picked the ones I wanted to use and crafted the ones that were not available. I do most of my crafting in the player owned town of Bladewyke. Please come and check it out. LOL!


The Trophy Room (Basement)

It's more than a Trophy Room, it's HOME!

I called my Trophy Room... The Wolves Den, not because it's almost filled with Wolf Heads but because I have too much Pristine Timber Wolf heads in storage. So, instead of hunting for other Pristine Animal Heads, which can take a lot of hours, I just used the ones I already have. LOL!

You will find my Trophy Room, The Wolves Den, in the player owned town of Bladewyke. Come check it out and check out the town as well. ^_^

20 Botters Banned

Recently in Shroud of the Avatar, 20 accounts were banned for botting. Not just botting but egregious botting.

Tech Director Chris Spears in his Daily Work Blog said, "Travian meetings wrapped up early so I decided to take a pass on banning botters and banned the 20 most egregious offenders."

5 of those 20 banned accounts were DevPlus accounts.

DevPlus accounts are accounts that spent at least 450 US Dollars in the Bundle Store. As you can see, getting banned from Shroud of the Avatar is an expensive experience.

Found And Checked 9 Player Vendors In Knight's Watch

Just recently in Shroud of the Avatar or right after the Community Livestream, I went to the Player Owned Town of Knight's Watch to check out the player vendors in town.

When I was there, I found at least 9 active player vendors and most of them were found right near the docks and they were selling all kinds of items like resources, rares, rewards, furniture, decorations and others.

I didn't spend a lot of time in Knight's Watch but I did spend a fair amount of gold in one player vendor because the prices of the items listed in this player vendor were freaking awesome.

I think I spent a little over 70,000 game gold in Knight's Watch and it was just in one player vendor.

Anyway, if you are playing Shroud of the Avatar and would like to check out the player owned town of Knight's Watch then you will find it nested with the NPC town of Kingsport.

Shroud of the Avatar Release 44 introduced plenty of new things and one of those new things is the Room Rental System. With the Room Rental System, home owners can rent out any rooms in their house to other Avatars.

In the player owned town of Soryn Fields, the Town Crafting Inn is now open with 15 rooms available for rent but the cost of renting a room in this inn is absolutely FREE. Yes, Avatars who wish to get a room won't have to pay anything.

The Town Crafting Inn in Soryn Fields is located right in the heart of town. It's right next to all the NPC Merchants, just a few steps away from the Players Market Area and the ground of floor of the inn houses all the Crafting Stations in the game.

Avatars who have yet to get their own homes or properties in Shroud of the Avatar are welcome to stay in the Town Crafting Inn for free. If you are that Avatar then simply send an in-game mail or message me with your request and I will immediately give you access to your room.

Virtue Miner's Helmet Added In Release 44 Of Shroud Of The Avatar

During the Summer 2017 Part 1 Telethon of Shroud of the Avatar, one of the cool rewards was the Virtue Miner's Helmet. It's an old-school looking miner's helmet and it's, obviously, for those who spend all their time deep in the mines of New Britannia mining.

In Shroud of the Avatar Release 44, after waiting 2 releases, the Virtue Miner's Helmet was finally released to all those who spent at least $5 in the Summer 2017 Part 1 Telethon.

As soon as I got into the game, after patching, I went immediately to the nearest Banker and claimed the Virtue Miner's Helmet reward by simply talking to the Banker and clicking on the Claim Rewards button.

The Virtue Miner's Helmet has a domed shaped design, metallic finish and small mechanism in-front that works like a modern flashlight. It also has the Virtue symbol at the back of the helmet.

Now, my Avatar in Shroud of the Avatar looks and feels like a true miner in New Britannia. :)

Shroud of the Avatar will do another test of its Free Trial System and it will start tomorrow, July 3. It will last until July 26, 2017 and that is a lot of days for you to play Shroud of the Avatar for FREE.

With only around 30 people working on the game, Shroud of the Avatar releases updates every month. From adding new content, polishing existing scenes, completing the story to performance improvements and others.

This release, one of the scenes that got a huge polish is the Isle of Storms.

Old Isle of Storms

New Isle of Storms

In any case, take a look at the video below to see what are the restrictions of the Free Trial Test of Shroud of the Avatar.

The Elder Scrolls Morrowind, Forgot To Save

So, I recently got The Elder Scrolls Morrowind GOTY Edition from and started playing it. The game looks very old, obviously, but it doesn't look terrible. Anyone can pick it up and play it without getting bothered by the old graphics. Well, at least, that's what I felt when I was playing the game.

The Elder Scrolls Morrowind was a very slow paced game. I spent a lot of time talking to NPCs and establishing my character's identity in this world. Also, for some reason, The Elder Scrolls Morrowind kinda reminded me of Shroud of the Avatar.

The Elder Scrolls Morrowind and Shroud of the Avatar have elements that felt very similar. I guess, I'm playing Shroud of the Avatar too much and now it has affected how I perceive other games. LOL!

Anyway, as someone who is not used to playing single player games, saving is something not familiar to me but I learned how important saving is when I tried to fight a Smuggler inside a cave and died.

Now, I have to go back and re-start everything which is not a problem since I was still at the starting area of the game. So, remember guys, to always save your progress when you are playing single player offline games. LOL!

Rocking Pilot, Got A Review Copy FREE

Rocking Pilot is a new game released in STEAM. It's a twin sticks shooter and I got a review copy for free a few days ago. Unfortunately, I'm not much of a reviewer but I do love trying out different games. Even games that I don't usually play like Rocking Pilot.

Gameplay videos and blog post about Rocking Pilot

Anyway, getting a review copy for free was awesome because I was able to try out the game for free and I had fun giving it a try. Rocking Pilot is a very challenging game, at least for me, because I'm not used to playing shooting games.

Now, even though I'm not a big shooting game fan (except maybe for first person shooters), I might just keep Rocking Pilot installed for now specially when I haven't beaten any of the bosses yet. LOL!

The first iteration of the bosses are somewhat easy but the shielded versions are giving me a headache specially when there are huge amounts of bullets to dodge and deflect.

In other words, I suck at bullet hell or shooting type games. Ha ha ha. It requires hand and eye coordination which, at my age, I don't have. LOL!

Portalarium is currently doing a Trophy Room Contest. You can find more information about the contest from this post in the forum titled The Magnificent Trophy Room Contest Begins!

I was the first one who submitted an entry and I called my Trophy Room Entry, The Hall of Hammers. See screenshots below.


Kabalyero's Tribute to the God of Thunder, THOR :D

(Who had his Hammer destroyed by Hela... LOL)

You'll find the Hall of Hammers in the Player Owned Town of Bladewyke. It's right next to the NPC Town of Etceter.
