We had this lovely plan to get a new box and upgrade, but it happened rather unexpectedly and totally outside the window we were expecting to announce. Good news = new box and upgrades! Sad news = took a bit longer to make everything happy. Best news = we're back!
While many Archers are free-roaming individualists communing with nature and not above hugging the occasional tree, some of the more populous races put those talents to work in a more disciplined, rigid, military capacity. Soldiers lose out on some of the Archer's wilderness survival skills, being mostly trained to defend castles and other developed areas, but gain some unique new ones in return. Their discipline makes them skilled leaders, an they can even impart some of their skills to other group-mates. Many races
train their soldiers with crossbows instead of bows. Like all Prestige Classes, they retain the original class's Prime Requisite, in this case, Dexterity.
Soldiers are far too law-abiding to ever become Assassins, but occasionally, that fervor for law leads them to trade their crossbows for great swords and become Paladins, albeit at a higher level than Warriors.
Deep in the Wildwood, the quest area known as Under the Moonlight has returned to Avatar to offer fun challenges and prizes for players who complete them. Players who complete all of the quests successfully will receive a special reward when visiting Henry, the gardener.
During the month of September, Avatar apprenticed two new acolytes and in October they officially became demigods! Welcome to Skojare and Vellum! They are working hard on updating area files and fixing typos. Please say hello when you see them online.
