Yes, Stile is still alive! After a lot of work hours im STARTING to get caught back up on enough life stuff that fell behind, im not just dipping my toes back into playing catch-up on SotA stuff.
Ill still get all the stuff in my vault out to you, even if its a bit old. Might be some things you didn’t see on your own elsewhere that are of interest to you!
Thanks to my team for their support in picking up my slack in times like this! Ok, and launching…3…2..1…
I do plan on doing some news pieces on Underworld Ascendant. I do not know how heavily I will cover things on that but I definitely feel its connection to Shroud of the Avatar is so great it can’t be left out on my site! I am a backer myself and was very excited by this announcement and made sure there was money in my account to cover it!
Tracy Hickman is writing a Novel! Woot! I must get this!

New to SotA? Haven’t been on in a while? Need to meet some people? Go on the welcome quest! They are being ran every two weeks. Here’s a recent forum thread:

US Gamer has a nice little article over here. The title pretty much says as much as I would!

I think from what we are seeing so far it is clear that Shroud of the Avatar will have some strong ties to the single player game Underworld Ascendant which comes from Ultima Underworld, a game near and dear to my heart (and in my collection!). As such I put a page for it under the links section of my site and I plan on kickstarting it (just waiting to see if we have a cross promotion right now).
Well, im not the only one! The community is already getting a wiki going and its being done by a lot of names you should recognize. Go read it for yourself!
Looking for a lot in game? Not sure where to find one? Saw an empty one don/t need it but will share it? There was a thread for that for R13 and tradition is being carried over into R14. So go find it here and tell them the Caverns helped you find them!
The Mad Hermit never seems to stop putting out pieces of aid to the community! Need gold? He is going to show you how to be rich beyond your dreams and then you CHOOSE to live in a little hovel alone somewhere in the woods.. because your CRAZZZZYYYYY…
All Reporters Gathering! This is a thing! How cool is that? Winfield posted about this new occurrence taking place over in the Sota Forums. Heres a little snippet of what he has to say!
To discuss how news and information from inside New Britannia is reported and documented.
To compare ideas to help consolidate and prevent duplication of services.
To envision how information will last for decades for all to use.
To share knowledge about existing or planned services.
To educate each other on best methods for discovering, uncovering, reporting, and documenting information.
Now I know your saying.. “Stile, how soon are you getting in on this?”. To be honest, I am not. I think its fantastic, a great group and they have my support! However for me personally I have a dull plate of projects and activities that I am already trying to wrap up so I can maintain my core stuff and focus on my guild and new in game projects. Im not going to add new projects to my plate! Although I hope to maybe poke my head in from time to time as time allows.
However I think this is a fantastic opportunity to grow a great community within our big community. TWO THUMBS UP!
So were in R14 now your playing it, the graphics are looking good. Maybe some things still need some work. Well, compare it to where we where are R13 and where we are going by catching the R13 Post Mortum!
The Bear cavern starts a new community group called “The Beran League”
To one and all,
The community of The Bear Tavern has slowly but surely grown over its recent past, attracting visitors from all walks of life. Now well beyond the scope and scale of that originally intended, it has been decided that a different approach should be taken to support the community as a whole. As such, on the evening of the 3rd of February, the High Council of Beran’s Reach voted on and approved the formal creation of The Beran League, an organisation encompassing a range of Towns, Guilds and Businesses. This represents our first step in founding something bigger, a move which promises to deliver greater opportunities and events for those who wish to be involved. Our little community has begun to grow up.
This isn’t the only news. Alongside our current circle, our long-term friends within The Moongate Travellers together with their Player Town of Rifts End will be joining us. I would like to wish them a formal welcome, a matter that seems somewhat redundant since we know many of them well already! I look forward to go out into the world alongside the good folk of MGT470 on dungeon raids and event nights in the future.
