Quick Post on Shroud of the Avatar

Portalarium and the Shroud of the Avatar

Again, I cannot apologize enough for not doing podcasts right now. Please keep praying for Grandma Char as she goes through tremendous teeth (plural) problems. Without her, we’re kind of up a creek with regards to daycare three days a week, and I spend my weekends trying to keep up with school work.

But this came across my pad and I had to share. As much as I love Chris Roberts of Wing Commander etc. fame, my undergrad years were spent in the late Ultima games of Richard “Lord British” Garriott. The gang at Cloud Imperium brought him and his new group, Portalarium, out of Austin, Texas to our attention this week as they are looking for investors as they open up a new fantasy world similar in style to the Star Citizen universe, with a dynamic economy, land and home ownership, and as instance-less experience as possible in a perpetual universe that only the Lord British could dream up.

I don’t know about you, but this has my heart pounding a bit and I have to take a look… just as soon as I find some income. Lowest investment for INVESTORS (that is people who are actually going to have stock in the company from what I gather) is $500 and comes with in-game perks as well. Take a look. I’ll see if I can scrape some pennies together so I can give a decent review somewhere down the line.

Thanks again, everyone, for your patience, please prayerfully consider $1 a month through Patreon to help with this daycare disaster, and God bless.

Longhaul Short – Albion Online

Want a Star Citizen only in a fantasy setting? That’s not exactly what Albion is, but it is a kind of upgrade for World of Warcraft players who wish the economy was more dynamic and they weren’t primarily using their professions skills just for their own stuff. Take a look.

SPEED!

How is speed dealt with in Star Citizen? A lot differently than most games. Chris Roberts is going for realism. Let’s take a look at space travel as we know it, at near light speed, and as it is in game.

What’s Banu with You?

What’s Banu with You?

The mysterious and enigmatic Banu culture has been described as “Yankee Traders.” What about their redesigned for humans ships, the Defender and Merchantman, do we need to know for family fun before purchasing? I run down the basics here.
