Making of North Midmaer Way and North Quel Way
We have been focusing many of our scene rebuilds (aka “un-clones”) on the lower tier scenes near the cities along the paths of Truth and Courage. These are all Tier 1 – 3 scenes that players encounter near the beginnings of their play experience. In addition to being rebuilt, we are also adding side quests to them.
In Release 47 these scenes include North Quel Way and North Midmaer Way. North Quel Way is a forested road in the Quel region that features a caravan trading post that has been overrun by undead. North Midmaer Way is a spider infested densely packed forest of old growth trees in the Midmaer region.

North Quel Way
Hey guys! SorcerousSteve here again to give you an update on the making of North Quel Way!
Below we can see the abandoned graveyard in North Quel Way, it is from here where waves of undead rose from the ground and descended upon the valley below attacking innocent wayfarers.
Beware of the gargoyle statues for they may hide a surprise…
Dumphry Castle now lays in ruins amidst the mountainous terrain with its drawbridge lays up. Gargoyles can still be seen perched up on its crenelations and a mysterious atmosphere lingers through the mist.
The North Quel Way trading post (seen for the first time in last week’s update) still bears the signs of the recent undead attack.
Numerous zombies now lay dead, but can we expect to see another wave of undead soon?
The valley as seen from across Sweetwater Creek and the now ruined trading post.
See you next time!
Updates to New Content Threads: More SeedInvest Items, Bierkrugs and New Fall Items
As mentioned in a previous update we created several new threads to show off content that we have been creating for SeedInvest Perk Packs, Telethons, and the Holiday Season. We will be making and posting in these kinds of threads going forward so that our players can stay up to date on the latest images of these items as we make them. In the case of the Telethon and holiday content they will first go in Dev+ and then later be included here in the Weekly Update. Last week we created a thread about the new Bierkrugs. This week we have added more content to the SeedInvest thread and created a thread for the Fall items.
