First I have to apologize. I have been waiting until I had enough pieces to get a new one of these out and a few days ago I realized I was way past having enough and should be posting the second one by now, with what I have! Ooops!
So let’s do this thing.
I mean, what can I seriously say? What words can top this title? Not really fair you know? It’s like looking at a level 6 Rouge and saying, ok go for it, roll your hiding skill to hide from Dragolich the dragon, in a fully lit room, which is also his hoard, after he was just talking to you, and you haven’t moved, and he knows where you are. Unless your Bilbo and have a Ring of Unlimited Invisibility, with Unlimited Charges, forget it!
He’s talked about in this article on Crowfall as well as how the Portalarium team has worked with the Crowfall developers.
When you look back at the history of fantasy and online games in Austin, one name that always pops up is Richard Garriott, who co-founded Origin Systems in the early 1980s and who has for many years loomed large in the local games community.
Specifically to Shroud of the avatar, MMORPG talks a bit about the state of the game in this article.
Starr Long crushed the dreams of a small segment of the player base like so much playdough recently when he announced that the bag inventory system would be dropped from the game.

Hey, don’t forget in addition to writing this blog I am an independent entrepreneur, that also sells Shroud of the Avatar in-game items! Not just in it for the sales, I am a day one backer, Seed Investor, fan, and player!
Visit my store here, which has been recently updated with large amounts of inventory!
Just another short and quick to the point piece for you Shroud of the Avatar players, of things you may have missed. Most of these items will not be found mentioned on any of the official communication platforms for the game, but are rather pieces I found elsewhere.
Shroud made MMORPG’s list of games that had it worst in 2017.
Richard Garriott is a legend. Portalarium’s goal to make the ultimate RPG is a lofty one, but one that just can’t seem to find its footing.

Massively Over Powered talks about the addition of Log Cabins to the game.
With such a strong emphasis on player housing, Shroud of the Avatar has fans guessing as to what other interesting abodes the team is cooking up inside of Lord British’s lab. Turns out the answer to this is “log cabins.”
Well, if you missed Richard Garriott’s book I HIGHLY recommend it. In fact being familiar with most of his stories it has even become more fun for me, as when I am telling someone about something I am now able to pull it off a shelf and say “read these two paragraphs!”.
You probably saw this one through official channels, but it’s worth watching again!
IGN Talks about SXSW hitting Austin in March!
For starters, attendees can enjoy exclusive access to industry luminaries, creators, performers, and high-profile players at the Discovery Stage.

Also if you did not see one of my new projects, I am running an online auction site now. Located in my store, Caveloot.com, 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 email@example.com?
Richard Garriott, as always, has been in the news a lot of late. Seriously, when is he not?
Both Portalarium and Shroud of the Avatar are also seeing a lot of increase in the news, with their Seed Invest campaign! Speaking of which, that is drawing to a close so if that interests you, get in on it!
A Lot of articles are being syndicated around on the bigger websites, as well as original pieces coming out. Here are some of those for you to check out!
Richard Garriott is certainly no stranger to Interviews. I also doubt this is the first time he’s been interviewing while playing a game.
In this episode of Antwand Pearman Vs The Interview, Antwand interviews game developer and explorer Richard Garriott over a very special game of “Save Matt Damon.” They talk about how Richard developed the Ultima series, weird things about space travel and much more! Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues
How about those Lunar rifts? When do they go where?
Duke Gréagóir has a fantastic link to a spreadsheet posted over in the forums that help with just those sort of questions!
It is a google doc and starts 6/29 at 4:151:15 pm central time / new britannian time. It is easy to modify as the forumla is adding 8 minutes and 45 seconds for each stop. If you see it is off, Let me know or you should have access to edit it too (if the setting works in google docs).
