Alter Aeon May 2019 Update
Here is some recent news regarding Alter Aeon:
The 'mystic projectile' spell has gotten a facelift, becoming the more versatile 'mystic armament', which not only can be cast on blunt ammunition like sling bullets but also blunt weapons, imbuing affected items with magic type damage. The 'blindness' and 'cure blindness' spells might be getting changed up a bit as well, and some other cleric spells and skills will be tweaked to increase their usefulness, especially the 'expiation' spell.
Small refinements for gods are being devised, such as favored compositions for unguents and sacrifices. Pantheon entries have been set up to accept composition assignments, and we will finish switching over to the new system soon. We are also working toward having unguents be able to be poured.
There have been improvements to warrior combinations. Combos can add hit point regeneration or constitution, and they will add movement regeneration in place of strength, dexterity or constitution if the attribute is already maxed out.
Basic infrastructure has been set up for randomized encounters. The goal is to have functional land encounters in time for the Summer Solstice Celebration, so we can showcase them in the event areas. Details regarding the summer event will be revealed in our June update!
We're going to be reworking Redferne's palace this month, which is a major hub of exotic areas for the low-level island of Archais. The palace and associated areas will have quests added and will be leveled up and moved to the eastern part of the island. Several high level areas continued to be developed, such as another island around Gianasi, solo areas for the Nightmare Plane, an east coast city of Ramanek, an ocean area north of the Dunn Hurr, and another expansion for the plane of Crepuscula, the Eternal Dawn.
