AWESOME

Postby MadMax » Apr 5 2009, 1:17

Okey I have now emailed Maygwan the FULL NATION INFO! So a complete map of Sighisoara will hopefully be available within a week or so if he isn't to busy, I will probably start working on some campaign info and some really cool story for a campaign within the next few days! Is there anyone besides Yurian and Maygwan who is even intrested in this project? Please let me now! Cause I work really hard on this and it will be a really cool story filled with a whole new history in a whole new continent! It will be awesome!

Well people doesnt seem to be very intrested at all..
I can tell people that the first campaign that will be made will be played in the beautiful nation of Aurolas, one of the most important nations in Sighisoara.
Here are the nation info of Aurolas:
Aurolas
Inhabitants: Humans
Wildlife: Centaurs and Dendroids are running around in the forests of Aurolas, in the city a few sick dogs run around and also they are acctually some minotaur "mafias" roaming the streets.
Population Size: Big+
Rule: Aurolas is ruled by the popular and gracefull King Quintus Tullius and his Queen Servia, they have a strong militia and a well controled country, the only major problem in Aurolas are the Minotaurs that are threatening and some times killing the people. Alltough Quintus are afraid that war will brake out if he tries to stop them since the minotaurs have connections all over Sighisoara.
Enviorment:Sighisoara has a very big and beautiful (and not yet fully discovered) forest where alot of creatures roams, but also the forest can be an easy way for enemies to enter Aurolas and attack the city, alltough King Quintus has spies all over the forest looking for invaders.


In the first campaign you will try to investigate a murder of a local inn-keeper!

NICE NEWS!

Postby MadMax » Apr 11 2009, 17:06

I have started working on a powerpoint presentation of Sighisoara! :) I will update this so that you guys will be able to see what is going on in Sighisoara, for an example I will post pictures of work that is being done on the continent, and also it contains all the nation info (I was thinking about not letting the nation info go out public but you know, what are you gonna do?) I am working like a japaneese beaver on this and I will hopefully be ready today already so that I may continue working on the first campaign :)
Best Regards Max :)

Second link is corrupted

Postby Yurian Stonebow » Apr 17 2009, 8:19

The second link seems to be corrupted. It complains about an "error", and after that nothing happens. It just won't let you to download the file. The first of HoP's two links is okay, so no worries there. As for that add crap found at the download site, well I can live with it thanks to my powerful F-Secure.

Update, Friday 17th of April 2009


Yes, it's another Friday, and another update! This time from me, Yurian. A nice change, isn't it? :D


Work on the Sighisiora campaign continues, although the pace is set to little slower than usual due to that time consuming real life and all its demands for our attention. HoP remains in charge of the project with me and Maygwan providing him our assistance & support & advise.

As per deal discussed between me and HoP on Feb 20th this year,
the work load is shared roughly the following way:

HeroOfPunk: Leader of the Team, art (hand drawn maps and other "goodies"), story, texts, other events and last but not least,
main share of map making
Maygwan: map making, graphics, additional ideas
Yurian Stonebow: additional map making, balance checking, eliminating of typos & bugs, additional ideas

Check out HoP's PowerPoint representation of Sighisiora. You'll see some nice bits, informative bits and all the other bits there taken from the work-in-progress. It's all good stuff so far, and it goes to show HoP's talent and his highly ambitious plan for an epic campaign. Recommended!

More to come on this subject! Don't change the channel.

Great update Yurian! :) Maybe you wanna be in charge of the update writing to? :D xD

I will continue my work on the campaign by tommorow if everything goes as planned, and hopefully I will have the first part of the first campaign ready by monday with some hard works and effort putted into it :)

As you guys who checked the powerpoint presentation already knows I have an idea of the first campaign. We are hoping to see some more activity from our very talented map-maker Simon (Maygwan).
So hopefully, if Maygwan have the time we will have the first part of the campaign ready by next week. If he doesn't I will just keep working on the campaign-info and then set him to work as soon as he's back and we will have the whole campaign ready in a few weeks :)

I want to say a big thank you to Yurian who is really active and participate in this campaign.

Also I want to add that if anyone feels like helping me and my loyal and awesome team out simply just email me at: MaxofSighisoara@hotmail.com :)

Thanks for listening and showing intrest!
Dont forget to keep yoruself updated as the life in Sighisoara goes on! :)

Okey this week has been a week with some nice updates. I have been working on the history of the howling champions inn, but that wont be realeased, atleast not atm, we will be releasing part by part of the history in the upcoming campaign.

Also we have decided how the first campaign shall go and the writing down of that will start as soon as I have finished Yulgar the Inn-keep's suprisingly intresting background. Alltough that wont be released officially either. That will also be discovered as the first part and maybe second part goes on.

Also I found some old documentation and I already have started the plans of a future campaign. So I took the time and I wrote everything down to my computer but unfortunatly that is nothing that will be released officially yet eighter. Alltough you will see some pictures from the mapmaking of this campaign which I started a long time ago! So I will soon release a updated Powerpoint presentation with some cool new contents and pictures!

So look forward to be seeing an updated powerpoint presentation soon, and also hopefully soon the making of the first campaign will start soon to! (Then I meen like map-making and such!)

And also if you are a map-maker please contact me!
