Awesome NEWS fellow Outlanders!

Besides from getting a Free Lot Deed as loot items from high level mobs in the game, Portalarium will add a new way of getting a POT Row Lot Deed for FREE!

Housing in Shroud of the Avatar is great! You'll enjoy hundreds of hours decorating your property in the game but getting one can be hard specially if you are a casual player.

Now, there are more ways of getting a Lot Deed in the game!

I created my third Heraldry Blazon design last night. I spent about 2 hours working on it. I submitted for approval to Portalarium and a few hours later it was approved. It's now in the game which is awesome.

Shroud of the Avatar now has user generated content in the game. NICE!

You can now play Shroud of the Avatar for FREE. Just create a Free Trial Account, download and install the game and play.

A Lot Deed is a very important item in Shroud of the Avatar because it will allow you to claim an available lot in a town where you can put down a house.

If you wish to own a lot in Shroud of the Avatar then joining the Lot Deed Raffle is a good way of getting a POT or even a PAD Lot Deed.

To get a Lot Deed Raffle Ticket, you must buy them from the Housing Decoration Merchant or from the Housing Deed Merchant and you will find them in the second floor of the Bank NPC Building in NPC Towns and Player Run Towns.

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. :)
