Update for this week: Programming continues to work on animations and other polish issues. Tools are being ported to web apps as opposed to native windows apps for a variety of reasons. We are interviewing a 3D artist that has promise. Lore is working on the map and we should have a world map soonish to share with you. World Building continues forward. The screenshots for this week are for a different island (Mah'rela Isles) being worked on by a different world builder, but they WILL look similar for now because of the shared assets.
Note: To view the images at full res you can right click the images and select save target as. Currently they are scaled down to fit the page.

It so happened that I had a friend who had been working on a religious niche MMO for years using a volunteer only team. I tapped into her knowledge of volunteer and remote team building and much to my amazement was able to start reassembling a team far more rapidly than I thought possible.

I was skeptical at first, being accustomed to funded projects and a job site where we all met every morning and worked together and in person.
My friend and now co-lead and Pantheon Producer, Laurene, has done the amazing and we have a very solid team of lore writers, world builders, artists,...
Lost among the turmoil of the last week was the recent information releases related to the Ogre race in Pantheon. Among these updates was a complete system of language, a look at the Ogre pantheon, and a great look at the Ogre concept art, providing a sense of scale and variety among one of the larger races of Pantheon.
Take a look at it all and join us in the forums to discuss where the Ogres stand now.
Lots of Gnoll lore has found its way to the Athenaeum. Today we learn about the Netherclaws, the Bristlefurs, the Ravagepaws, the Wildclaws, the Sharpfangs, and the Blacktails. And, to top it off, we're given an Old Briggean Farm Fable to top off the gnoll lore.
Check out all of the LoreLibrary.com's great work and let us know which pack you would run with, or if you would just slaughter them all!
