10/29 update

Late on 10/28 we experienced a service outage that lasted roughly 20 hours. Everything is back up and running smoothly now and we are looking into the cause of the outage. At first glance it doesn't appear to be anything malicious. We had been online without interruption since 8/13, making it our lo...

New and Old Areas

There has been some feedback over the last week that I wanted to clarify in more words than a simple 'fixed bug...' line in the updates list. We have been working our way through every area in the game to implement some better spawning practices and fix a ton of consistency issues. I'm happy to repo...

Back from the wild

I spent last week in the mountains and have safely returned with loads of material and inspiration. Most of August will be devoted to finishing up some outstanding mob/npc projects before the creators get together over Labor Day to discuss future plans. After that we'll be switching gears to quest w...

Roadmap to Launch

I mentioned in the latest State of the Isles that we were working towards a stable release of the game that we felt comfortable enough with to push a major relaunch. With that comes the difficult task of deciding which components of the game make the cut, which can be salvaged with some work, and wh...
