The Making Of Valhold Headlines Latest Newsletter - Shroud of the Avatar -

The newest Shroud of the Avatar newsletter has arrived. The latest in a series of developer diaries regarding creation of zones within the game is the centerpiece, this time the making of Valhold. In addition to a bit of information about how the zone is created the newsletter is packed with images showing what it looks like in the current build.

Hey guys, started working on a new scene this week VALHOLD! I won’t get too much into the background, I will let you find out when you play and don’t want to spoil anything.

A couple of the main ideas are.
-A once great kingdom that was ransacked by Kobolds, since then it has not been up kept.
-Overgrowth, a castle that is getting devoured by nature.
-Green color palette, all element should be very cohesive and even tied together with vines / plants.
-Vaguely Norse in architecture.

The letter also contains other information about a player owned town template, GDC wrap up, in-game community events and more. 

You can read the full Shroud of the Avatar newsletter online.
