So what has SHG done over the past 3 months?
A lot. As always, a lot.
www.baneworld.com is being migrated to the larger NEaB community. That means lots of more quests, content, and players to infuse the game. If things go well, in 3 months it’ll be fully run by the NEaBS admin team.
As for our more popular StarPirates.net and SpyBattle.com, our Gem over that time is:
* Mission Control – see post here. Players get to “live” the stories of their cohorts. How cool.
It’s live in StarPirates and a variation will be live in SpyBattle soon.
We knew that our games could be confusing to start, and if someone’s confused, they’ll wander off before giving the games a shot! So another big release was:
* Walkthroughs for new Players: Try to get confused about the game now! Just try 🙂
* Dozens of new NPCs to fight
* New items
* Updated jobs
* A slew of gaming upgrades; we’ve lost count.
On a sadder note, we’ve mourned the real life passing of one of the games’ legends. We miss you GDL.
On a happier tone, the marriage of two of our players lit up the community. What makes this marriage extra special? They met in the game, fell in love here, and continue to bring cheer (and pirate ways) whenever they come online. And maybe if you’re nice they may give you some of their unique wedding cake (!)
We’ve also cleared some trouble makers out of the game. Community is what makes our games extra fun – we won’t put up with those that are dragging it down.
Since role playing is such a huge part of the game, (thanks role playing community!), we’ve been involved creating official Canon for the SP/SB universe. This allows storycrafters to ensure their work fits intot he overall tapestry (no pressure tho). This has been underway for a while, and will be released this week. Lots of hard work, and sacrifice, from the Role Playing community to help with this. Thanks.
What’s next? Well that’s for another post. Stay tuned!
