Welcome to the first official teaser thread for the next Santhworld adventure....Treasure Shoals.  Already the story is coming along nicely and more than one person has contributed pictures and ideas.  This project is still in its infancy and will not see the light of day for quite some time, but a teaser can always be appreciated.  Here is what you find upon entering this adventure......enjoy.

At the Helm of the Ship
“Ahhh, it’s great to be alive” you say aloud as you steer at the helm of your new ship. The smell of the sea, the sound of the waves, the wind in your hair and nothing standing in your way but the horizon.  “This is living” you think to yourself.  
From your vantage point you can see the crew bustling about doing whatever a crew does to make a voyage possible.  In fact you are not sure what all those things are.  This is the first time you have been in command of a ship and you barely know how to steer at the helm.  Luckily your grandfather taught you a few things when you were younger and you seem to be getting by.  As you guide the ship you notice the wheel has some markings next to each of the seven spokes.  You wonder if you should know what those mean.  Putting aside these thoughts you decide to explore your new ship.

*hehe* Really cool teaser picture, Seeker! And a first glimpse on how the story starts, very fascinating - I really would like to get on that ship and find out more about this mysterious steering wheel... Especially given that the adventure is called "Treasure Shoals"... Hmmm... Looking forward to this new adventure - hope the coming release of Nepris II will inspire you on this one as well!  thumbup

Excellent Pic, Seeker.

Oh, and I have the symbols figured out.  You see, if you steer into the symbols in the right order, you open up a magical hole in the water, like a wormhole or something in the ground, that you can travel through to a new land; almost like a...Seagate.  Yes, Seagate sounds right.  These magical wormholes were built by elves long ago called simply The Ancients.

Short note: Treasure Shoals Part II - Seeker's epic treasure hunt - is practically fully prepared by now (texts, graphics, sounds, music, game logic), only some pretty minor details left. So I'll soon move on to prepare Part III. All the texts until Part VII (out of eight if I remember correctly) are done by now, and Seeker is working on further pictures. Great work so far on all fronts by Seeker for which he earns another aura +1! thumbup

Maybe we can put up some more pics on the Facebook page, but on the other hand we shouldn't spoil too much of the story... Well, we'll see - maybe a few glimpses won't hurt...

How distinctly exciting! I shall commence my preparations at once!

Short note: I'm on vacation until next Tuesday, which gives me the opportunity to continue working on the Shoals, Chapter III. Hope I will definitely get it done until then so that it will be ready for Seeker to test this part of his story online :)

Chapter IV of Seeker's Treasure Shoals is now prepared (aside from a few smaller details, which should be taken vare of soon). Should be checked soon by Seeker and Grinch... - I'll also see to put some screenshots up this time of the latest chapters on our Facebook page, in a few days or so. Of course we shouldn't try to spoil anything major, so we'll just put some things up to represent the general atmosphere :)

Anyway, great job with the story and the pictures, Seeker - I'm really curious what happens next in chapter V, it really gets very interesting now... :D

Aura boost for Art.  He is putting more time than I thought it would take into this.  Thank you so much.

Okeydokey - preview pics are here now, 20 new ones to be exact. Check them out on the Treasure Shoals section of our Santharian Facebook presence! Hope you get at least a glimpse of the diversity of the pics and general stuff going on in the adventure without revealing too much about the story itself.

Now working again on Chapter 5 of the Shoals... Vacation days are a bit scarce these days, but I will hopefully get 7 days in a row still in April. So now I have till Monday for the Shoals, let's see how far I can get with preparing Chapter 5...

I had the honour and pleasure to test-play Chapter I-IV. All I can say is: finish Chapters V-VIII already, as I can't wait to continue this marvellous adventure and find out how it ends (after dying several times along the way, no doubt; fortunately I am not a cat and therefore not limited to nine lives).

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
