Mar. 2019: Relentless Progress
A new business, Twitch affiliate, the Banners, new art, and the next step in the RPG
A Solid Foundation
We delayed activating it until we had the business aspects sorted, but now we're all set! We will be putting together benefits for those with subscriptions, and are taking ideas!
Shoutout to Secondhand for being first to subscribe and give us bits!
A Call to W.A.RBarron has been hard at work organizing World Anvil Radio and the challenges here onsite.
While this hasn't been direct Ethnis development, it has given him expertise with Twitch, so we will be applying his lessons to create more engaging and exciting Twitch streams!
Check out his interview with Anna Elizabeth Boyett on VOD here! Her world is amazing and she's a delight to talk to!

60-70 pages of GDocs have been ported to World Anvil including Plots, Sanity, Actions, and Stats. There's many more, but those are the highlights for now.
Next is to make them pretty, and to update mechanics according to feedback from the last year! There's still much to do, but the progress has been exciting!
We are still planning a Fudge-Based variant of Ethnis for simple roleplay, so Master+ can expect to see that and some roleplay channel support soon!
To the left is the breakdown of the bonuses of being a Master, and above is the sigil which represents it.
The Banners UpdateThe Banners have been an albatross around our neck for a while, but we are rounding the bend on being done with writing and formatting them. The Pact and Somnacy have have a finalized Banner image for a while, but the Sorrows and Hedon are currently WIP. If you check up above you'll see that we've started to acquire commissioned art! This particular piece is a preview to a fullbody reference of a member of the Verin Haimarchy, we want to do one for each Banner!
Highlighted ContentThis month we have focused on bringing over the RPG Content and polishing the Banners. Ademal also entirely rehauled the Introduction To Ethnis to have a greater call to action. Give it a read!
Introduction To Ethnis
Ethnis is a massive Science-Fantasy setting and a backdrop for stories woven in many mediums—including books and RPGs. This is a primer to the setting, the ongoing projects within it, and how read, play, or support it.
How you can help
There's high costs associated with a project like Ethnis in terms of art, business fees, promotion, and production. It boils down to time and money, and we can always use help with both.
Tell your friends about us and subscribe to us on Patreon, and we will put your efforts to good use!
We are going to make Ethnis no matter what, but the love and resources given to us by our fans drives us and makes Ethnis a reality sooner.
