We're making a few adjustments here and there in the Santhworld program to make the game a bit more accessible for new players. Especially those who have little or no experience with text based games like this, and from what we know reading instructions before you actually make a character isn't everyone's forte. :)

So we changed a few things (more will be done in the course of time). What we did now were two things:

1) A reminder at the first Nepris room that you need to type HELP if you have no idea what to do next.

2) We threw out the old Help Menu and replaced it with a combo selection, where you can learn all about the necessary commands. It's much more precise and straight to the point now. A link to a detailed Hint page will be added there sooner or later, right now there's only a placeholder for that. But the rest of the information should get across to the player better now.

General note: The next Santhworld module that will go online is the Hall of Fame, a series of rooms you can actually walk through. There you can learn about who completed which games so far and/or how much score they've achieved as of yet, who found the most artifacts, was the best fighter etc. and all that jazz. Of course the data is only available from the point on when we updated the program version to Nepris II.

Grinch is working on a few scripts to display the proper tables and I'll add a few graphics to spicy things up a bit. Maybe we'll activate module by module in this Hall to get it started, so we'll see. This is more a matter of days than weeks as it won't be that complex, but it should provide some fun and offer some insights :)

P.S. If you want your name in a completed list, make sure to play the main games that are available :) Maybe we'll also add a special list of heroes of all those who have completed all available games (so far Enemy, Uninvited and Nepris, as the Lorehold is more a playground than a game).

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers

Short note: We had a bit of downtime Friday/Saturday night due to a server change. Site went online first, message boards took a while longer - now everything should be back to normal.
