Need to Know More About Housing, Lots, Raffles, or Related in Shroud of the Avatar?

Silis put together a “Player Housing Primer” for Shroud of the Avatar and put it up over on the forums for everyone to use. So if there is anything about housing that has ever confused you, this may be worth taking a look at.

This primer was created to help new players understand the housing system and answer a lot of questions that I was hearing after the raffle. I try not to go into too great of detail, I leave it up to you to decide what you want to discover on your own from here and what you want to research deeper. Please send any feedback, I hope I was mostly accurate in my data.

Player housing in Shroud of the Avatar is a fun way to take a break from adventuring and carve out your own spot in the world. It gives you a flexible way to express some creativity in the game and create a space with your friends or for yourself. To understand housing there’s a few initial concepts to run through quick as houses are placed on lots that are claimed with deeds. You may also need to pay taxes on lot to maintain ownership. Below is a brief overview of these ideas before we dive into the house itself.

Be sure to let em know thecaverns.net sent you, and here’s where you can get the info and let em know!

Shroud of the Avatar Keyboard Template for Corsair K95 RGB LED Extended

One of my friends, The Mad Hermit once did a piece on his keyboard. You can find it on his website over here.

I bought the Extended version of the same Keyboard, the K95. I did a light template a while back for Shroud of the Avatar but keep forgetting to share it, so figured I better do so while thinking of it.

Now, this is the first attempt, and I am sure others could do better. If you are not one of them, though this one is somewhat decent. Mode 1 is just a “fun” out of game mode that I like. Mode to is Shroud of the Avatar non-combat. Mode 3 is Shroud of the Avatar combat.

Keyboard SOTA

I hope you find it useful!

Keyboard SOTA

If you don’t have one of these keyboards, the price has come down on them somewhat. I was lucky enough to get mine as a sort of fee in exchange for some tech work I provided (more of a thank you).

It is NOT just about the lights! The keys on these keyboards set above the keyboard in special fittings. This makes getting crumbs, dust, etc.. inside the keyboard not easy. The keyboard itself is made out of aircraft brushed aluminum, and it’s some sexy metal! This thing is built like a tank and is made to last.

The only thing that was bad about it for me was the wrist rest. One of the clips quickly broke, and when I examined it for repair, I felt it was a poor design in general. I get by fine without it!

You can drop over to Amazon here to take a look at them in more detail.

New Project Britannia

A new framework to be built by and for the Ultima & Shroud of the Avatar fandoms, which intends to become the go-to resource for Ultima & SotA fan projects.

What does one say to something like this? Seriously, I am impressed. Having a fairly good idea on what will be involved for a project of this size for those heading it and involved in it, my hat goes off to all of you. I am really looking forward to seeing where this goes and what is created from it. One thing I know for sure, in general the people that are going to be attracted to this are great people that epic can honestly be applied to when describing their work!

Here is a piece from the post over at Ultima Codex but make sure you head over to the article and read the whole thing!

We want to create New Project Britannia, a central framework that multiple fan projects can each contribute tech and artwork to, allowing it grow over the months and years until it becomes the long-desired Ultima Game Maker that many have wished for, which in turn could enable Ultima and Shroud of the Avatar fans to build their own games and projects using pre-made systems and assets.

HELP! I’VE FALLEN AND I CAN’T GET UP!

No worries! Jynx has you taken care of!

As many of you know, but some may not realize, Jynx took over the quick reference card project I had originally created (with my blessing I would add!).

She’s doing a far better job then I!

Updated, full graphics, and better then ever Jynx has a thread for her new version where you can provide feedback, over here:
Quick Reference Guide | Shroud of the Avatar Forum.

You can find links for different downloads, a preview, and more at that location so its the best go to place!

Thank you Jynx, for the hard work on this!

Reference Card re-invented by Jynx!

So Jynx asked if I minded if she made a special version of the reference card I had created. I immediately said yes because my experience has been when someone asks this question, they will probably do a better job then I do on it! So.. sure enough,s he hit a home run!!!! Natural 20 with a Natural 20 crit confirmation!

Its already in play! Use the link to the directory, and grab it!
https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B2Lv2exEq_w9cDlGZTlOVGlaeUE&usp=drive_web

Going forward she will be taking over the project, but I will handle distribution and announcements on the updates of it. Although sometimes you may see the new version in that directory a bit before I announce it if I’m running behind, so keep an eye on it!

A huge thank to Jynx for this. Its sometimes a bit hard to let a project go, sometimes they are ones I just wont, and sometimes its awesome because seeing what they are doing with it is way more then I had the time for and so its in the right hands!

Quick reference Card becomes.. Catalog of reference sheets

Many of you know I have been keeping a quick reference card. I have a few updates for that project!

The first is that Portalarium is now maintaining an official version of their own. I’m happy to see this for many reasons but was very surprised they gave me a shout-out at the bottom for the first fan version! Thanks Dev’s! You can find the official version here:
https://d2sx9mrt4zumaq.cloudfront.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Quick-Reference-Card.pdf

With all of that said I absolutely (at least at this time) plan to continue maintaining the one I created. There are a few reasons for this but the first and foremost is that it does not take much and it will/does have things the official doesn’t.

Beyond that though I’m going towards more of a “book of sheets” now. A basic game quick reference card is great! however sometimes you want a quick reference card for commands in specific areas of the game, because lets face it, games like this can get fairly advanced!

R12 introduced guilds and so, my new version of the quick reference card has an additional page for “guild quick reference”. Its small right now but I am sure there will be more to add to it as time goes on!

Additionally I will be making reference cards for other areas and things as time continues. At least that’s my current plan! Have a reference card you want to do, maintain, and add to the book? Let me know and we can see if that’s doable!

The other change I made is that I am now sharing a directory of the cards and adding versions to them. This allows you to get the most recent or go backwards. the new link is:

What kind of experience do I get when I kill….

Well, people over in the forums, seem to have that covered for everyone! The one thing I would keep in mind, is the EXP will probably change as time goes in.

Thanks to Kvow for getting this going!
Please visit the link here and tell him you found it on the Caverns!
