I hope everyone had a great Christmas Day yesterday! I’ve not long got back from a friend’s house where I spent Christmas being (somewhat) terrorised by his cousins, but work has begun again for both staff members on Sizael.
The main thing that’s happened tonight was the latest Patch Update. Nothing major, but it was the return of the guild page from the guidebook. Now hosting short information for more than just the character-led groups, it also holds information on NPC groups such as the ‘Fanatics of Rajva’ - reckless blood mages and other magic-users who openly oppose the current queen of Sizael. Hopefully it won’t need editing too often, but we’ll see how it goes.
The other thing that we did briefly was to quickly work on one of the upcoming SRSEPT posts for our current special event, The Battle for Caften City. The post itself isn’t finished yet (we had to restart due to character actions), but we’re very happy with how the special event is panning out in general. Though we’ve been running for three years, it would appear that this special event is the most popular yet. It’s likely because we changed how this SE is being run - instead of having The Battle for Caften City as one roleplay thread, we’ve given it an area, and ‘official’ threads. With some careful observation, members are also able to create ‘unofficial’ threads, and all threads affect the story and outcome of the event. We’re hoping to post the next official thread on New Year’s Day. Wish us luck!
