Looking even more impressive here!  I can't wait for this game to come out.

I think it'll be a blast, personally.  :-)

I am not sure about the gameplay graphic. Looks very elementary to me.




I am lost. I have gone to look for myself. If I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

The graphics are fine with me, but I'm weird that way - I still enjoy playing really old games with primitive graphics when the gameplay and story and depth in general are all there.  I've gotten really disenchanted with current games that look good but have nothing that makes me want to stay and continue playing.  I don't think that Shroud of the Avatar is going to be that way.  I think it's going to have serious staying power.

I'm looking forward to playing it. Mostly because I want to see if I can get rich in-game by being the best dang shop keep around!

Flamethrowers are proof that somewhere, sometime, someone thought to themselves "You see those people over there? I sure would like to set them on fire, I'm just not close enough to get the job done."

Hello Gang!  Happy New Year!!!  Hopefully you are all doing well.  Wow the game has come along rather nicely.  I really like the housing idea (reminds me of the old ultima online days).  Is this going to be an MMO or one of those player hosted server type games?  Time to do some research!  =)

Looks like the game has had a few pre-releases.  Hows it going so far? =)

It's really starting to look incredible to me.  I may be a bit biased, but I think it's really coming along well.

Hello All!

I have been talking to Shanni and Vel about Shroud of Avatar.

One of Vel and my first MMO's was Ultima Online and prior to that it was the Ultima single player series.

As a throwback and nostaligia to that experience, I too have pledged to see the game get developed (and also get early access+niffy house)

I've been fortunate enough to be able to allocate some discretionary funds to pledge Knight level and was going to share a place with some friends from an Ultima Player shard to start a tavern.

I also extend this invite to all of you as long term extended family +1 (Mushen is the plus one).

You can call it home as long as you wish, whether it is a temporary base until you find your own home or indefinitely. There will always be a nice warm MSG free bowl of soup waiting for you.

That's incredibly generous of you!  I've seen the Knight house, too, and it's really sweet.  It's one of my favorites, actually.

I don't know how widespread the population will be, or what the travel times will be for moving from one area to the next, but I'm personally hoping that we can get "guild homes" in each of the major population areas.  I'll be using the home that I have for the same purpose.  :-)

I do have the knight home for benefactor, however I thought most people would try to use the same home, so was going to try to have a more unique look.

Right now under the Knight pledge our group would be afforded:

1 tax free village lot

1 free knight benefactor home (plus all homes previous, eldaman, citizen)

1 free vendor (with no tax)  -  Shanni calls Dibbs in running our Vendor Store :o

1, 2 story village stone basement

early access to select lots (knight group tier for village lots)

Also wanted to run the idea by you and rest of Pif.  I was trying to think of an appropriate name if we pursue the tavern theme.  Would you think it be appropriate to call it Silvergate Tavern?



My thought pattern was this...   I would like to create an establishment where we can be impactful in our local community, regardless of the building, I would like to have it have a common room/space for everyone in our village, while also partioning off a private area for the rest of our group.

What is everybody's thoughts? Its an idea still in motion and welcome suggestions on how to proceed.

I'm not sure if it can be partitioned off internally or not - I haven't read anything about that.  There has been talk about access control based on friends, guilds, and a list of specifically selected people, but that's access to the home in general, not portions of the interior.  Might be something to ask about on the forums, eh?

Beyond that there's talk about being able to get a guild hall building as well, but I don't know how that will work yet.

Oh - By the way.  You've still got your original forum profile here from back in 2006 when you first created it.  The username is "Anosa" and I just reset and PMed the password to you.
