We're going to continue to open up the Lost and Corrupted to people in the world. You should feel comfortable to speak to them. We want you to. The benefits are that you can learn more about the Lost and Corrupted, and if you want to play with them, open up more of the world to you at the same time.
Regarding the three factions, we want to let you choose between them. There will be several options when you are in the starting area. You can see what the Varangians are up to by putting on their shako. We believe that all factions should be cohesive enough, and that if you're playing one, you can still play the other in the same world. However, some of the lore and magic will be focused on the Varangians. They will have their own, unique architecture, outfit, coloration, and shading. The Lost and Corrupted have their own architecture and feel, so players should feel comfortable speaking to them or buying and selling with them.
We're continuing to iterate on the concept of items. I like that you can transfer a variety of different things in the world. You can buy shields, and you can use them in the game. Any shield you can get. I like that there are Magic shields. I like that there are shields that let you cast more spells when you level up. I like that you can use some shields as a buckler.
We're doing everything we can to make this game next-level. We're ramping up our levels, our world, our lore. We're going to be iterating on the gameplay, on the systems, and on the art. I think it's going to be a good game. If you're willing to keep talking to us, we'll keep listening. d2c66b5586
