Admin Note: Time Off / Site Reworking


kiss

Greetings everyone!  You may have noticed posts have dwindled down recently.  Time, other hobbies and obligations have sucked me away from updates here.  Interest in SotA has not waned – just time to post news about it!

I started this site as a way to organize information about Shroud back when things were new and chaotic.  I think it served its purpose back then! :)  Now, a year later, Portalarium is doing a good job at keeping everyone up to speed on their site and Facebook, and other fan sites have been posting game/community updates regularly.  I feel that reposting the same updates is getting redundant.

This Week’s PotA: Lich Archer


liche3-25-14

Work continued on the archer lich over the last two Pen of the Avatar shows.  Looking phenomenal (as always!)   If you missed it, click on the link below to watch the process and to hear Lum serenade us during some technical difficulties (around the 16:30 mark.)

Note: Starting April 1st, Pen of the Avatar is changing to a 2 hour broadcast, reduced to once a month.  However, we were promised some additional developer hangouts to fill in the gaps a bit :)
