Nature Night begins in about 2 hours from the time of this post . That will be at 2pm CDT. Please check page 5 of the " Nature Night - Phase 2 " thread for a map to the location of the Wild Grove where we meet !

I will be IG as Rubok Baxtrapple. If you see Malam's name on the list, he is just being used to set the event up.

For any that read my new Nature Night post before I corrected it... Malam is going to the Fey Realm to find a cure. He is ...not going to the Spirit Realm ... to fix the fact that he spent too much time in uhmm..the Spirit Realm.

I need to edit more closely.

I try to stay up to date on upcoming games I track, but this one's been off my radar (since it's so heavily pvp focused). It's made quite a lot of progress and has entered pre-alpha testing.

Here's a link to their Testing Forums where the test periods are described.

One has to be a backer to get into the testing, and it's not trivially cheap.

I am not in this, I like games to be a little further along before I buy in, but some of your might find it worthwhile, or just like to see how far along they've come.

Here's TheLazyPeon's first impressions video from about two months ago.

Also, the Guinecean Duelist is awesome. Here's some official intro footage. This might be the most clever stealth system I've ever seen.

Crowfall recently had a weekend where players could build test Eternal Kingdoms.

Crowfall - Eternal Kingdoms: An Overview

I have fixed feelings about this upcoming game. It sounds really good mechanically, but the heavy emphasis on the PvP Sandbox and railroading crow/vessal concept fall a bit flat with me. Others may really love it.

If you allow me to make a veeery slightly off-topic suggestion - here's an Imgur album with lots of Crowfall fan art. There's some silly stuff inside! -Clickedy-

Aha, there was a big content reveal in Crowfall:

“MASSIVE REVEAL” DAY IS HERE!

Looks pretty nice!

They're still in a playable testing mode a few days each week.

It's been a while since I've posted anything about Crowfall. I'm still watching it closely. They're in a live 24x7 pre-alpha version 5.7, and have been having short tests of each new build on the side.

They're making excellent progress. The system for Eternal Kingdoms is working, and they have been testing Order vs Balance vs Chaos campaigns. They're reworked a lot of mechanics, generally for the better, and its in a basically playable state right now. I'm considering buying in soon. They still have wipes ahead, but plan to have a soft-launch in 2019. Soft-launch will still be pre-alpha or alpha, so a lot will change, but they will no longer wipe on major updates.

They now have many more classes, races, and genders available, with quite a few combinations. They still have a few yet to release.

From watching a few streams I would say the game looks very good visually, has smooth animations and gameplay, and looks fun as all get out.

I believe JamesGoblin, International Man of Mystery, would approve.

But of course; and before you buy it, this might be handy to know:

1) Test access is $50 at the moment; this also includes the game and some other things. For anyone who wants to try it for free, they'll have open beta right before launch, with pre-registration: you have to make a free account BEFORE beta starts - in fact you can make that account right now.

2) This is the most important part: Crowfall is not a game yet, but a test environment; In other words you can mine & chop trees, kill monsters, check building, crafting, character creation and progression, do some PvP...but there is no game loop and real point yet, except for improving the game through test feedback and possibly satisfying one's curiosity.

3) In fact the 5.8 update, which is already on test server, might add the first big loop (victory conditions, territory controll etc.) but I haven't played that one yet - also you won't have access to 5.8 with $50 package at the moment, but likely in couple weeks when it moves from "test" to "live" server.

4) There is no persistence yet: character progression, inventory, banks...everything will be wiped, likely already when 5.8 hits the live server, and likely a number of times before launch.

There is more, but this already turned into a textwall, so...
