Hi folks! So, I wonder how many people are like me: backed the project at Kickstarter to help get it off the ground, dabbled with pre-alpha releases for a year or two, and then stopped, thinking I would not spoil the experience and wait instead for official release before playing the game properly ?????? And now, after all this time, we are just over 2 weeks away! Much water has since passed under the bridge: Mordremoth has been tied-up into several reef-knots, Balthazar has been blown to little pieces and Molag Bal sent packing in total humiliation with his tail between his legs... And Portalarium MAY have got the sound of a giant spider right ?? (They growled like lions the last time I played). So, now our return to SOTA is required for a re-assessment! I would not be surprised if Her Majesty has even got her new high-spec laptop at the ready! We returning players may be massively out of step, grossly inexperienced in comparison with the dedicated stalwarts that have continued to guide the project over the intervening years (and seen and done everything already) BUT I do not return empty handed! I would not want to launch into Novia without a few handy materials on hand to help and provide some guidance. And what I have produced for my own benefit I offer to the community as well to use (or not) as they see fit! Obviously, to keep those awfully nice chaps at Portalarium happy, I will be sure to place these goodies in the correct “Player Created Resources” directory. Brownie points there. Having said that, try as I might, it is not possible to hold back this “low-resolution preview”: Experienced hunters on imgur will be able to find more wonders!
