Ethnis Lite Update
Module in the WorksWithin the last month, we've decided to work together with Dimitris to create an all original Ethnis-based Module for Ethnis Lite! It's been an experience and we look forward to seeing Dimitris play it on stream in the coming months!
Welcome to Ethnis
Article HighlightsWe put down a lot of words for the month of September. While the primary focus was Ethnis Lite, both Ademal and Barron got some inspiration to put out a fantastic article a piece. Ademal took inspiration from the monthly community challenge, Premier Politicians, and created a Jupiter Syndicate Justiciar Errant along with all the information surrounding her story! Barron got an inspiration to write about a young Kona Helmshigh and his encounter with the Queen of the Parisan and her shield. It sports a flash fiction and all the information pertaining to the most powerful shield in Valdutan's arsenal. And with Inktober happening, we got a couple more gems both in art and writing!
Barron's Euphraesthi's Bastion
Barron's Gravedigger Moles
Ademal's Lillian Hesperides
Lillian Hesperides is an Justiciar Errant serving the Arm of Justice of the Jupiter Syndicate. Her primary role is as a administrator and officiator of Syndicate law traveling between Outer Worlds, and she lobbies for Infomorphic Civil Rights.
Ademal's Clade of Operant Drama
Summer Camp PrizesWith the Summer Camp 2019 prizes finally complete! We got to send out some gifts to some fantastic world builders! We were proud to both sponsor and take part in Summer Camp! Congratulations to the following folks who won prizes from us!
NaNoWriMoIt's in full swing, and there is plenty to do! Ademal is working on his own secret piece while Barron is working hard to get back into Ethnis Eats! We won't be participating on the NaNoWriMo website, but we will be using the energy of the month to hopefully get these projects knocked out!
World Ember PrepTaking part in WorldEmber has always been a tradition for us. This year we will indeed be taking part again! While we won't be pushing ourselves to win, we still are thinking about doing a stream like we did for Summercamp!
The Discord ServersWe are always talkative in the Ethnis Discord, it's the perfect place to ask questions or in the case of the Ethnis Lite server, see the game at work! Why not join us?
August: Ethnis Lite Beta
September: Ethnis Lite Polishing
As games develop we will continue to polish E.LITE content! New features, tweaks, and enhancements will be added regularly for at least a couple months as we get Ethnis Lite to a Beta state.
October:Core Cleanup and Lite Polishing
Our goal is to get the core of Ethnis down to 100 articles, which means that by the end there will be around 700 articles visible only to Patrons. This number will only go up with time, so consider supporting us if you don't already!
While there will still be Ethnis Lite updates, we are placing much of our effort on a couple of novellas that we want to publish.
