One day early! How about that for a surprise!
We have a solid group of people that have been slaving on the RP events, led by Svorai. The recent Living Mountain event was 100% planned and created by these people and was very appreciated. Narakis helped quite a bit as well, and also one of our 'not yet visible' volunteers.
We are currently planning and working on two major events. Of course, I cannot say more then that.
Events are high on the priority list and we will continue to have something going as much as possible.
Obviously comms were a big release for us in October and Garryn will continue with bug fixes and tweaks for that. If you have questions, concerns, or problems you can post them in this thread on the forums.
Shrines and Relics
This is our next big release. Shrines are coded but will probably be tweaked some more before release. Relics have a large number of their powers coded. Once the relics are done being coded we will start setting up how they are aquired. Most will probably be gained via killing some boss mobs. The stronger the mob, the better the relic that will be dropped.
I am not going to explain them in great depth here, but you can get more information in this thread:
We followed the basic outline as is posted there. We came up with a few more powers of our own and from some of the suggestions in the thread.
Santums are no longer going to be attached to shrines, but once shrines are relics are out we will look into doing those, unless something is deemed more important.
This is not Imperian specific, but since Garryn is working on it, I will post the info here. Garryn is slaving on the client reskin. Our power users probably use cmud and mudlet more, but the reskin will be very nice for those using the browser. I am going to try to release the art as well, so those of you that are interested can make a nice mudlet skin for it. Once the client reskin is done, Garryn will be working on an exciting project for your entertainment.
Very soon you will be able to set foreground and background colors to 256 different colors (if your client supports it). Probably before the end of the month. Here is a sample showing backgrounds.
