Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Shiny New Stuff![edit | edit source]

  • 4 New Magicks for your testing pleasure!
  • Teleport - Immediately teleport 10 meters in the direction you're facing. Best used when your destination doesn't contain fiery death.
  • Stone Prison - Raises an impenetrable barrier around its target. Useful for locking down enemies for a few moments of peace and quiet. "I'm in a stone case of emotion" (Escher respect-points for guessing the reference)
  • Tactical Dragon Strike - Placable 'napalm' strike. Smells, sounds AND tastes like victory!
  • Thunderstorm - Rain with Thunderbolts in a large area. Skillfully modeled on today's weather in Stockholm, but with added Thunderbolts!
