Shroud of the Avatar – Update of the Avatar #222

Greetings Fellow Avatars!

Here’s what we have for you in this week’s edition of Update of the Avatar:

The Making of Solace Bridge Outskirts (continued)


Travis Koleski continues his updates on the first Solace Bridge Outskirts scene. It is downriver from Solace Bridge where the Solace River meets the ocean. The small army that was defeated at Solace Bridge retreated here and sent on the villager refugees to Soltown. They have made camp in a ruined tower overlooking the swampy shoreline. However they are not getting to rest in their retreat for a nearby bandit camp is preying on them, stealing supplies. Plus across the river lie the ruins of an ancient village infested with the very undead they just retreated from! We hope to have this scene live in Release 41 or 42.
