Portalarium, Shroud of the Avatar, It’s Dev’s, and It’s Community


Shroud of the Avatar has now successfully raised over Twelve Million in funding. That’s worth taking note of! My congratulations to everyone involved in that, something to be proud of.

Let’s take a look at some of the recent going on’s that are involved in that, shall we?

With Richard Garriott having opportunities to talk about it a bit at a Gaming Convention with over 350K people, I hope we will see a few new players!

Shroud of the Avatar works on replacing placeholder scenes – Massively Overpowered

Also if you did not see one of my new projects, I am running an online auction site now. Located in my store,, where you can also find Shroud of the Avatar Items listed under the “virtual Games” category, under the “shop here” menu tab. More products being added all the time!

What’s great about this project is that we sell for the community for a fairly low commission. If you want to learn more about it why not just drop my an email at

I also have a nice write-up detailing the program over here in the forums:

General Updates From the Game Master

Hello everyone, yes I am still here! I was thinking about the fact I have not gotten many words out in the last couple of weeks and decided it was time for one of my rare updates!

First for those of you who follow the Ultima Auction spotlight’s, and other auction types I do on occasion. No worries! I just honestly haven’t seen much of anything that’s felt worthwhile.

I guess the Holidays have slowed down auction postings by people, much like my vendor sales in Shroud of the Avatar have died. Which (shameless plug) by the way, all have full sets of

crafting stations just for starters!

Back to updates…

If you missed it I lost my regular employment on 12/23/2016 (company lay off), and I have been preparing, one of my businesses selling LARP, Cosplay, and Gaming (board, card, RPG) to begin traveling and selling at conventions.

I will spare you with the details as to why it’s taking me weeks of working 120+ hours to get prepared! I begin going on the road in two days (*winces wondering how he’ll wrap up that quickly*)! Currently, I am working on getting my transportation ready for travel this weekend. My next two days will be consumed with almost nothing else, before going on the road Friday. While a lot looks done, I have barely gotten started!

So when will I be paying more attention to the blog? SOON!

I actually received a subscription box today that I will be trying to do a review on in the next few days.

I definitely need to write-up another Neon Milk Lyric review (or rather finish the one I have started).

Beyond that, I have several articles saved I hope to be getting back to soon!

So that’s the short version of the current news as it stands, and as always I am still here and hope to get back to regularly scheduled blabbering soon!
