This month, we've got more concept art to show! On the development side of things, we've continued working on map sprites and animations, as well as adding some proper UI elements. On the design side, more time has been put into establishing the locations and history of the important stories that take place in this exciting setting. We've even got flags for the different nations of the world! But today, we'd really like to focus on the Bards.
In our next title, the player will take on the role of a Bard. Where fighters may see combat as a show of force and wits, the Bard sees a compelling story unfolding. They are trained writers and directors, whose ability to carefully sculpt the narrative unfolding around the heroes they work with is invaluable. The world of the Passages grants powers to those weaving a compelling tale- and the Bard is there to take and optimize every last ounce of that power.
Though they may often seem arrogant and controlling, they are artisans without peer through-and-through, and are highly sought after and prized by adventuring parties. Simply put, bards are in the business of making badasses.
More to come next month, stay tuned!
