Dev Post 101 – Don’t Shoot the Messenger

Tiny snake messenger reporting for duty!

Besides our progress on our second one-shot, we’ve also been working on an engagement plan to improve our communication and marketing. There are lots of ideas, but it’s also been a challenge since marketing in the TTRPG community seems less present than in other branches. So if you’re working in the industry, and have tips and tricks, we’d love to learn more!

This little snake messenger is reporting for duty! Usually deployed by lamias to communicate with each other. The snakes are often hypnotized and compelled to carry those messages, which is slow but very effective. Especially during stealth missions. Who would ever suspect such a tiny creature, right?

Dev Post 98 – Things Are Taking Root

A young dryad in a grove.

Another day working from home has come to a close! Today, we focussed on our art checklist, started discussing going to SPIEL in October, and continued working on the second one-shot adventure. Things are moving forward!

Dryads sleep by rooting in the soil and turning into an actual tree, which leaves them vulnerable at night. But the little dryad portrayed in the art piece is not quite ready to root yet, still enjoying the last rays of sunlight from which she gets her energy. The young dryad will eventually need to root, because they get their water and nutrients from the soil at night.

Dev Post 95 – Draw Me Like One of Your Elven Males

During our research on a long, dead female politician, we came across something rather interesting. While digging through her belongings, we found a booklet with the most curious contents: soft porn. Her name remains unknown.

What We’ve Been Up To:
After a well-deserved holiday, we are ready to tackle 2021! While we’re moving slowly, we are still moving forward. We’re excited to share more concept art, updates on gameplay, and other content!

The Gentle Orc and His Small Friend

‘Boop!’ The orc gently taps the visiting squirrel on the nose. ๐Ÿฟ๏ธ Animals are the orc’s best friend; they love to connect with the critters around them. Just as much we love to connect with TTRPG fans out there! We’re sending virtual boops your way for good luck during your games this week ๐Ÿ€

What have you guys been playing these days?

The Lamia Advisor

The Lamia Advisor in Fancy Clothing.

Half-human, half-snake, the Lamiae are feared, ridiculed, and avoided by the general population of Far Haven. However, they are respected by rulers for their cunning and information networks. So it’s not unusual that they get hired by nobility to advise them, just like the Lamia depicted in the art.

The Lamia is one of ร†ther Void’s playable races. In our free one-shot Return of the Ancients, you can play as a Lamia as well. Download the one-shot here on our website to discover more of its unique abilities!

Dev Post 91 – Power Hour

Today after our weekly online meeting, we had a Power Hour for game mechanics to refresh our knowledge of Aether Void! This afternoon we went over the workings of stats and skill checks. Next week, we’re planning on picking up combat!

Also, some of our team members are participating in NaNoWriMo as a side quest this year! Are you participating? If so, what will you be writing?
