    I went to the Ruins of Ultheim. Killed a few things and then became encumbered.
    To sell things I needed to go to an NPC.
    There are NO NPC towns in Mistrendur... Why?
    Has work stopped on the new lands to create something else?

    It would have been nice to, at least, put the few town left for letting people starting the decoration..

    They're still working on those story scenes. I believe Sannio and List Rostov are working on those scenes, while Chris is looking into crafting.

    Most other Episode 2 content hasn't released. So we just have the new land to explore so far. Nothing more.

    I suppose the upside of hardly having done any world building outside of the novel is they could just move some existing npc towns to the new lands without messing any story elements up.

    I could see this argument for sure.

    It's kind of like the difference between player owned towns and real towns.. I really don't want to live in player owned towns.. no offense towards anyone who runs one, that is some awesome level effort but until they allow you the tools to form the landscape they just look kind of flat/vacant and boring to me compared to the busier/diverse NPC towns. Even if those NPC towns have... not very much going on in them. I also kind of want to read that book.. I actually read the story in this game and followed along with the lore so far... so I guess I should give that a shot too.

    Opposite, going to be a lot of fantastic stuff coming, especially to make it worth all the xp sink for the higher levels. can't wait to see what all is in store.

    been talk in several of the last streams about making it worth while for those like @Elrond etc which very high level where the difference between a GM100 and GM140 is so small that its not worth the 200mil+ xp for 2 point gain. There was also a Document that a bunch of us high level crafters gave input on many subjects and issues which I believe made its way to Chris on changes for him to look over and see what he could do.

    Oh I am just giving the old man a hard time. I am all about crafting in this game, Just wish we could lobby to stop using COTOS to fully repair our gear. That will help crafters out.

    The plan is to have 7 NPC towns, which we'll handle a little differently than most towns. Mistrendur won't have any large cities (like Central Brittany or Ardoris), but it will have 3 medium-sized towns and the rest will be small hamlets/outposts. Also, it's likely that all towns in Mistrendur will have enemies on the outskirts of the town, similar to Valhold.

    List Rostov is working on the first new adventure scene for Episode 2/Mistrendur. After that, he'll continue with Episode 2/Mistrendur scenes most likely alternating between adventure scenes and NPC towns.

    I'm still working on the big Episode 2 landrush of new and updated POTs, but after that I'll be working on some smaller scenes and quests related to Episode 2. One scene I've begin planning is "Lord British's Castle," which will have room-based battles similar to the Compendium of Pain and Suffering.

    If you make it all the way to the end, does the game send a Tweet to LB so that he knows to get online and kill the poor fools who dared intrude on his home?
