Island of Storms

Long ago incredible magical forces crafted this island on shards of the shattered moons where it still floats high above New Britannia. Arabella greets new avatars coming from Earth and guides them with a series of questions that will determine which path they start down: Truth, Love, or Courage. These paths not only determine which plot thread you begin with, they also determine what your starting abilities are and what equipment you have. Building this scene required some new solutions for terrain to allow us to show the island floating in space.






Blood River Settlement

The massacre at Blood River was first reported in Update #141, with images depicting the bloody, smokey effects of the massacre. Esteben Zaldivar has been cleaning up the Blood River scene, depicted here as it will appear when players come back later:





Very Large Creatures: Dragons

As you know, Dragons are making their debut in Release 22 next week! Here’s a cool video that Andy Cortez captured of Bren Wilson working on the Dragon animations:


In every army there are those who lead, and those who are led. The brutal nature of the Obsidians only amplified this simple truth. Thus was the existence of the race known as Fauns, engineered to be slaves for their more aggressive masters, the satyrs; a pairing which has persisted to this day through a bond few understand. Yet there are rumors of a faun who has broken his chains… rumors which fauns whisper among themselves when left unsupervised.

Here is a work-in-progress image of the Faun from our character art team. Look for these poor, enslaved creatures in an upcoming Release:



Craftable Fishing Trophies

As reported in Update #141, the first iteration of the fishing system will be playable in Release 22 (yay!). Scottie Jones took some time away from working on the Hilt scene to create these mounted fishing trophies that players will be able to craft from their catches in R22:


Release 22 Grand Tour Quest Reward: Steampunk Goggles

Just as we’ve been doing since Release 10, we’re including a Grand Tour Quest in R22 designed to guide you through all the new content. By completing the R22 Grand Tour Quest you will be rewarded with a pair of Steampunk Goggles. This reward can only be unlocked during Release 22 (did someone say rares?), so be sure to log in to R22 starting September 24 and talk to all the Tour Guides!

SotA_HighwaymanHat_2Time is Running Out to Get Your R21 Grand Tour Quest Reward

Better hurry if you want to add the Highwayman Hat to your collection because the R21 Grand Tour Quest ends next Thursday, September 24, when we launch Release 22!

Dyeable Brown Steampunk Goggles

And for those that love to accessorize, these dyeable Brown Steampunk Goggles are now available in the Add-On Store!


Autism Awareness Charity Drive

Last week we announced that RizeUp Gaming teamed up with Game4Autism and other stream teams for an Autism Awareness Charity Drive, lasting 8 days from September 14 thru September 22.

AvatarsRadioLogoOn Saturday, September 19th, between the hours of 5am CST and 5pm CST, streamers from RizeUp Gaming and DJs from Avatars Radio will be coming to Shroud of the Avatar. While their focus is to bring awareness to Autism and the Game4Autism organization, they will also be providing live coverage of in-game events supporting the Autism Awareness Drive.

And speaking of in-game events supporting the cause, join Avatars Radio, RizeUp Gaming and the Phoenix Republic for fun, games, music and shenanigans in Radio City from 2pm to 5pm CST on Saturday, September 19th! There will be Dancing, Races through the Avatars Radio race course, pet races and much celebration!

Follow @AvatarsRadio, @RizeUpgaming and @Game4Autism on Twitter for more information.

The proceeds from the Autism Awareness Charity Drive are being split equally between two organizations:


The National Autism Association, headquarted in Portsmouth, RI, whose mission statement is “…to respond to the most urgent needs of the autism community, providing real help and hope so that all affected can reach their full potential.” The National Autism Association is a parent-run 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Founded in 2003, NAA is a parent-run advocacy organization and the leading voice on urgent issues related to severe autism, regressive autism, autism safety, autism abuse, and crisis prevention.nas-logo

The National Autistic Society is the leading UK charity for people on the autism spectrum (including Asperger syndrome) and their families. They provide information, support and pioneering services, and campaign for a better world for people with autism.

Recommended Games to Back


Hard to believe it’s been almost a year since our friends and fellow Austinites at Skyshine Games successfully funded their BEDLAM Kickstarter campaign! They have made great progress and we’re excited to announce they released BEDLAM on Steam Early Access this week!

BEDLAM is a strategic rogue-like turn-based RPG. You are the Mechanic, the last known member of a once-thriving guild of brilliant operators of the rolling fortresses called Dozers. You are in charge of commanding your crew in battles, managing your resources, improving your Dozer, interacting with various characters, and protecting your passengers while navigating through the post-apocalyptic wasteland. Your goal is to travel from the futuristic metropolis of Bysantine through the chaotic realm of Bedlam to reach the rumored utopia of Aztec City with as many of your passengers and crew intact as possible.

    My goodness, that Island of Storms!

    It looks so amazing that I’ll be sad to leave the scene to start my adventure in Novia!

  2. davidventerdavidventer

    I only have one question: If this is a “new” game, why do the characters look like cirque 2000-2005 video game characters? I don’t get it. Surely whichever engine you’re using can support more modern character creation? This game world looks amazing but the characters look like crap, it doesn’t look like they belong in this world. It’s as if you’ve taken characters from a 2005 video game and dropped them into a 2015 virtual world. It just does’t look right. Pleas,e do something about the characters or this game is going to suck!

  3. Amber RaineAmber Raine

    Ooooh! Home looks fantabulous! Home? Blood River of course. I am so excited! The Blood Omen Keep shall have its place again in the land of New Britannia as it did in Old Britannia and the story both history, present, and future can continue. Very nice work Esteben!!

    Release 22 appears to be something dreams are made of. It is going to be fantastic, even if all I am doing is sitting on the edge of a river filled with blood, writing tomes filled with lyrics and tales of yore.

  4. Koveras

    So the Island of Storms is like the entrance dungeon to the game-slash-tutorial level? I can get behind that. :)

  5. eponymous

    Speaking as an autistic person, I am… really worried about that “Autism Awareness Charity Drive.” It appears well-intentioned, but there are many aspects that look like no one who’s actually autistic was consulted about it. A non-exhaustive list of concerns:

    1. The #1 rule of any marginalized group (and especially disabled ones) is “Nothing about us without us.” If anybody autistic was consulted on this, I would be shocked. This involvement concern extends, too, to the organizations involved (both those doing the fundraising and the recipients of the funds); further details on that below.

    2. The drive is phrased as “Autism Awareness,” not “Autism Acceptance.” Autism is not a disease that needs to be cured. Allistic people do not need to be “aware” of autism or of autistic people. They need to accept us for who we are.

    3. Several rewards use the “puzzle piece” logo. This symbol has been rejected by many autistic people, not only due to its origins (which was created not by autistic people but by the parents of autistic children and, among other issues, suggests that our autism is a problem to be solved), but especially due to its adoption by and current association with ableist, abusive organizations such as Autism Speaks.

    4. Game4Autism: Their site is such a mess that I can’t find a lot of details about who’s actually involved and what their connection to autism is, but as far as I can tell, it’s run by the parent of an autistic child, not by an autistic person. I am seeing some huge red flags even on their latest blog post, where, for example, they describe autistic people as being “Mentally Younger than their actual age.” They also use phrasing such as “someone who has Autism.” Because autism is not something we “have,” but rather a fundamental part of ourselves that defines how we see and interact with the world, many autistic people now reject such “person-first” terminology.

    5. RizeUpGaming: No direct connection to autistic people that I can see. Problematic usage of “awareness” and the puzzle piece symbol.

    6. National Autism Association: Does not involve any autistic people in leadership. Views autism as a “problem” to be “fixed.” Has a position on vaccination that completely sidesteps the disgusting, ableist scaremongering about vaccines “causing” autism, which is not only untrue, but it’s unbelievably insulting to autistic people to suggest that children would be better off dead than autistic.

    7. National Autistic Society: I’m not as familiar with them since I’m not in the U.K., but from what I know they’re better than the NAA. However, the NAS still uses person-first phrasing and is mostly run by allistic people (though a few board members are on the spectrum).

    If you actually want to act in solidarity with autistic people instead of treating our neurodivergence like a disease, I strongly suggest reaching out to the Autistic Self Advocacy Network (autisticadvocacy.org). They should be able to help you organize a charity event that involves autistic people while reflecting and supporting our actual needs.

    1. eponymous

      Gosh, I wonder why this comment is still awaiting moderation while others submitted after it have been approved. Very disappointed that you’re censoring the voice of someone who is backing your game because it’s pointing out a serious concern instead of lavishing you with praise.

    2. dallasdallas Post author

      Thank you for your detailed feedback regarding the Autism Awareness Charity Drive. As stated on our Make A Difference charity store page (https://www.shroudoftheavatar.com/?page_id=51225), it is Portalarium’s founding purpose to promote good will and make a positive difference in the world. With our very limited team resources, we rely heavily on our community to provide guidance on which organizations to support with charity donations.

      Our preference for charities to support is that they have an international reach, or at the very least, a national reach. We also attempt to validate the performance of charities through such sites as Charity Navigator (http://www.charitynavigator.org), Charity Watch (https://www.charitywatch.org), and Guidestar (http://www.guidestar.org). We understand the evaluations provided by these sites do not represent the entire story of charities, which is why it is helpful to get additional feedback from our community.

      We are always willing to change which organizations we support as we learn more about how best to channel the donations coming from our community. As such, we are very appreciative of the guidance you have provided. We will most certainly take your suggestions into consideration and will explore the Autistic Self Advocacy Network as a possible recipient of future community donations through our Make A Difference charity items.


      1. eponymous

        Thanks very much for your reply here and by email.

        If I may make a suggestion as to comment moderation in the future, please empower and encourage whoever’s in charge of the comment stream here to approve ASAP any comments that don’t violate the rules of the community, even if they are something you feel requires a response and are working one up for. Otherwise, you’re gonna get people like me feeling censored and getting tetchy.

        1. DarkStarrDarkStarr

          We are a VERY small team doing lots of things at once. We try to respond as quickly as we can. Please trust that we are always trying as hard as we can.

    If there’s the Island of Storm in R22 and the decisions there determine starting skills, would that mean we’re bound to getting a skill reset (just not an exp pool reset) in R22?
    ~looks puzzled~

  7. Sascha BiermannsSascha Biermanns

    The floating island looks awesome! Hope there will come a floating island over land too, or maybe an island within a huge maelstrom – that would be so wonderful!

  8. Browncoat JaysonBrowncoat Jayson

    The Island of Storms appears to be the same as the Island of Choices announced way back in Update #87; like the new name, but I would have liked to see the concept art again!

    The list at the top notes a Monthly Layaway Payment Plan Extension, which appears to just be the standard Auto-Canceling Monthly Layaway Payment Plans entry. Are we going to see the payment plans get extended once again, or still on track for year-end?

    1. smacksmack

      Yep, it’s the Island of Choices, renamed:

      I love the concept art too and i think if they added color to the atomosphere / clouds, it would come pretty close. And is that a static image of New Britannia that’s part of the skybox or are we really orbiting over New Britannia?

  9. Raven SwiftbowRaven Swiftbow

    Very cool! Did they send out the email version of this update? I collect those and have not yet gotten the email for this one.

    1. dallasdallas Post author

      Yes, emails are sent at the same time the Update is posted to the web. You should have received the email shortly after midnight on Friday night. Check your spam folder. If you still don’t have it send me a PM with the email address you normally receive the updates with and I’ll check to make sure it is still active in our MailChimp email database.
