Hospitallers – Players Helping Players

Are you a new player and just getting started in SotA? In addition to all of the great resources below, there is a group of players called the Hospitallers who help other players in the game. Visit the forums to say hello to them!

The official SotA Player Created Resources Forum is the place to find the best player created resources for Shroud of the Avatar, whether it’s a Player Written Guide, a Video Walk-through, Wiki-type Website, or many in-game resources.

A few featured resources:

  • Hospitaller Version 01 Straight ThinnerHospitallers
    • Hospitallers are volunteer players that help new players (or veteran players) that are seeking guidance, or just friendly conversation (in-game or out). While in-game, new (or veteran) players can signal to other players they would like help, or newcomer guidance, by pressing Keypad “-” and setting their title to “Outlander“. Helping players can display their “Hospitaller” title to signal they are available to help other players. Be sure to join in on the weekly Hospitaller meetings — it’s a great time to voice your opinions about the new player experience, to seek help from other players or to offer your assistance as a Hospitaller! The meeting takes place every Sunday, at 11AM US Central Time (Austin, TX), on the SotA Discord Voice and Chat Channels for Hospitallers-Help.
