Dev Post 100 – Happy Lunar New Yær!

Our three artists worked together today on an art piece that celebrates the lunar new year! Sanne created the background and the dragon, Bere made the ox, and lastly, Sigrid painted the character. We’ve been inspired greatly by Asian culture for one of our worlds, and we’d love to share our appreciation this way. Stay safe everyone!

A fragment of Aether Void lore:
Did you know that the calendar on Sleeping Dragon was based on Chinese numerology? In this particular system, some numbers, such as 6, 8, and 9 are regarded as signifying good fortune, while the numbers 4 and 7 are seen as bad omens. To make the calendar suitable for their world, the numerologists avoided 4 and 7 altogether and used the numbers 6, 8, and 9 wherever they could. Resulting in a year consisting out of 198 days with exactly 11 lunar months of each 18 days. Each lunar month was divided into 3 weeks of 6 days. Their days must be filled with luck, don’t you think?

Happy Halloween! 🎃

It got out… We couldn’t contain it. It never asked to be made, and now it remade itself. It was supposed to fix things. It was supposed to weld parts together for us. It peacefully hung from the ceiling, moving back and forth on the same tracks. Now, look at how it welded itself together and set foot on the ground. Taking its place among us.

Happy Halloween from the Aether Void team! 🎃

To sew or not to sew

These are some clothing designs from Sleeping Dragon! Clothing, among other things, has roots in Asian cultures. When colonists settled on Sleeping Dragon, most of them were of Asian descent, as to why you’ll see a lot of Asian influences on the planet.

Dev Post 90 – Winter Blues

Technocrat unaware of the impostor on his ship.

Seasons change, the winter blues are almost upon us, and some of us are a bit tired (probably like the rest of the world). But we’re still here, we’re still making progress, and we’re doing a bit of teambuilding! We suspect that Among Us might be the impostor, but we’re not sure yet.

So how is the rest of the world holding up in this strange time?

Dev Post 88 – Mad Beasts

Mad Rhinox

One of the creatures you might encounter on the planet of Sleeping Dragon is the Rhinox. A creature you don’t necessarily want to run into because few people live to tell the story. This mad beast makes an appearance in our upcoming adventure. The second one-shot will pick up where we left off in the first one, and it’s currently in its finishing stage. So keep an eye out for that! And hopefully, you and your friends will live to see the day…

Dev Post 84 – What the Hack?

In the past few weeks, we’ve been discussing how to implement hacking into Aether Void. What’s realistic, fun, and what kind of game mechanics do we want to create? What are some technical and social aspects we should keep in mind? And of course, how common will it be? What would you like to see in hacking, either flavor or mechanics?

Dev Post 83 – These are not the droids you’re looking for

We’re always looking for different and unique droid designs for Sleeping Dragon. Currently, we have a droid in our playtest to figure out how we can create a balanced and playable race. But what kind of droids or robots would be cool to play? How would you visualize them? Feel free to share some cool droid art to inspire us (or your description), so that we can figure out how to portray them!

Dev Post 82 – Don’t Wake the Sleeping Dragon

Magic with nanobots.

Tonight we’ll be playtesting a new campaign, taking place on A.Isle on Sleeping Dragon (our Sci-Fi world). But before we can start, we first need to take a look at (starting) equipment, currency, and characters. We’ll hope to share some updates on our Discord channel, Instagram, and Twitter. So stay tuned!

Dev 81 – Back to Devposting!

Orc on Far Haven training his squirrel.

Been a while since our last update, but we’ve been steadily making progress. Anyways, ever feel like you could use an upgrade? We’re currently exploring the possibilities for cybernetics in Æther Void. When you want cool new abilities or to change your looks (no need for loot boxes!), cybernetics are what you need! We’re eager to playtest these features and hear what the community thinks (so share your ideas)! Speaking of upgrades, the Æther Void Team has recently welcomed a new colleague!
