It's currently May 11th and no update.

Obviously they're delaying the update until bloodmages are finished.

Right?

...

Right?!

They've decided that bloodmages aren't a fighter ability, and are giving it to healers.

See shieldstones.

Maybe they're just going to push it back a week, and then have updates every four weeks?

That'd kinda suck.

Chaos Storms used to be times of wild excitement! Everyone would rush out and search for things, knowing that there must be *something* new in the world!

Now they come and go (or don't go...) without much of a word, besides maybe "ooh, new rugs!"

At least it would be nice to know *why* the update hasn't occurred...

Personal favorite storm: Underpuddleby

Personal non-favorite: When I was a FOTB newbie, finding the shortcut to KB and getting all excited that I'd found something new. (well, it turned out to be new...to me. :wink: )

I've asked the UpdateGM when the storm's due. I'll keep you informed. I think the GM has computer trouble. We may have to sacrifice a gerbil and summon a BackupUpdateGM, but that seems like a lot of work...and it's not so good for the gerbil.

I have been trying to add a small addition every update. This isn't always a new area, sometimes it is a new NPC/quest/rug. The goal is to have at least one new thing to find every update. I don't announce these, as the entire point is to recreate some of that joy of discovery.
