Fresh screenshots from our beta! We've been busy speaking with publishers and preparing for Steam Early Access. On the dev side, our server setup has been overhauled and is now purring like a contented cat as countless load-testing bots battle one another (the server is winning). Our many and various tutorial and help tools have got a new member, which is being implemented now. Never again will you ask, "what does that mean?" and not have an answer at your fingertips! But the main focus has been launch prep and we'll have some exciting news on that front soon!

Earning Glory unlocks new titles (wanna be a Baron? We do...) and also new heraldry objects to decorate your coat of arms:
