Hi everyone. I'm back from holiday and it's great to see the game and the community still going strong. In my time away the game has grown greatly and new content is being added almost daily. The new interface is in and working and it is a real treat to use, monsters are more active, quest NPCs and the first test quests are in and working and market NPCs are being created and placed. Watching the game grow is a real pleasure and something we will be sharing with more of you soon.

Dev News - Quests
Initial quest tests have been taking place and we are all very pleased with how it's going. Rob has been very busy assisting Matt, the main programmer behind the quest system, in inputting and testing quests and we are now starting to populate the world with the required NPCs. Over coming months we will see the number of quests grow from the handful we are working with now to several hundred, all of which need to be written, inputted and thoroughly tested!
