Player Made Dungeons to Debut in Q4 2018 - Shroud of the Avatar News

The latest Shroud of the Avatar newsletter is live on the game's official site. This time, the letter is anchored by the news that Player Made Dungeons will be arriving in-game as early as Q4 2018. The team is targeting that span of time and, until then, several placeholder, or "example", dungeons are in the game. When Player Made Dungeons go live later this year, these example dungeons will leave the game.
