Okay, so it's been a while since the last update or news post, so maybe it's time for some news. The latest thing I've been working on is a skill tree! For those who don't know what a skill tree is, it's a way of gaining new abilities as a character levels up. And that's exactly what you will see in the next update. Whenever you level up, you will be asked to pick one of three paths to advance down; The Berserker, The Intellectual, or The Socialite. Depending on which one you choose, you will be given a unique ability; it may be a spell, or an improvement to stats. The further down each path you advance, the more powerful the abilities become. With this feature comes a whole new bunch of spells, maybe one which freezes your enemies in their tracks, or maybe one which persuades an enemy to fight for you.
Anyway, the next update will be out soon. Everything is good to go, just need to check for bugs.
