Legends of Albadyn: Upcoming Content and Release of New Elite Quest: LoA Newsletter 11/30/2017

A new slew of content will be releasing soon: awesome content that will make your games of Legends of Albadyn have some very neat meta content.

What is meta content you ask? Meta content in this instance is something that will be effected outside the immediate game you (and your friends) are playing. This Meta Content will include access to several new modes as well as a way to get your friends involved in a meaningful way.

We will be introducing the Guild System.

This is something I have been thinking about for a while. The Guild System will allow for increased Gold Flow, construction of a Guild Hall, and will also allow for Elite Guild Quests, all of which center on taking down the Shadow Praetorium, the elite Adventurers in the Shadow Legion Guild.

Most importantly, however, the Guild System will allow you to unite yourself and your friends, family, and allies under a single banner, the banner of your Guild.

Hopefully, this system will make it easier to accumulate Gold, and will open up potential for neat new content in the future. Look for the Guild System Update (Update 5.0) on December 25, 2017.

Now, in other news,the newest Elite Quest, the Void Hound, will be uploaded shortly. While he has less than half the HP the Dragon from the last Elite Quest has, in his beta testing he ate a grand total of sixteen Adventurers. I never was able to beat him, and I look forward to trying again when the stakes are higher.

Following that, sometime between now and Christmas a small book should be going on Amazon: a story about a group of Adventurers that run afoul of some Bandits. That is part of the book, but there is more: in the back of the book you will be given a Legends of Albadyn Scenario that will allow you to recreate the harrowing battles of the book.

Now, regarding our Youtube channel (Legends of Albadyn on Youtube), I have no legitimate camera at the moment: I can only take pictures, but it records no audio. As such, our channel is, well, pretty much dead until I get some AAA Batteries for the camera I do have, but you can still check out the videos I have on there.

And a good idea for those of you who want to get your friends/family involved, the Legends of Albadyn Player’s Handbook is on Amazon.com at this link: https://www.amazon.com/Legends-Albadyn-Players-Handbook-Jacob-ebook/dp/B073VZJ426/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1512029922&sr=8-1&keywords=Legends+of+Albadyn

We have an Event Coordinator’s handbook as well, also available on Amazon. Give the Gift of Albadyn!

Looking forward to our next newsletter on 12/31/2017.

Cheers!

Top 3 Music For Roleplaying.

Sometimes you need some tunes for your Roleplaying. there are several sources for music that is suitable for RPing.

 

1 FUTURE WORLD MUSIC

Placing at number one, Future World Music has music for every situation. From quiet nights in the tavern to final stands against The Shadow Legion, Future World Music has it all.

Good by Future World Music: Beautiful, A Hero Will Rise, Allegiance to the World.

 

2: Two Steps From Hell

If intense battle music is what you want, look no further than Two Steps From Hell. Intense music that has a tinge of desperation to it, Two Steps is ideal for impossible odds and for striking against the unending stream of Monsters.

Good by Two Steps from Hell: Blackheart, Strength of a Thousand Men, Norwegian Pirates

 

3: Video Game Soundtracks

Games like Guild Wars 2 and Elder Scrolls Online have great Soundtracks. So do Skyrim, Oblivion, Hall and Mass Effect. Granted, some songs from some of these games may not fit the exact genre of your roleplay (techno effects + D&D? No, not for this guy), but making a playlist beforehand can alleviate these problems.

Good Video Game Soundtracks for RolePlaying: Halo 2 and 5, Mass Effect 3, Elder Scrolls Online, Guild Wars 2, Bastion, Lineage II

Where to find it?

Sources like Amazon Music and YouTube have access to these Soundtracks, and all of this music for that matter, so feel free to check it out on your next Roleplay.

Youtube Channels that have this stuff: ThePrimeCronus, SG Music, BrunuhVille

New Monsters: The Shadow Legion, as promised.

Okay, look, I know they were called the Black Legion in the future stuff post, but the Shadow Legion sounds cooler.

For those of you who do not know, Legends of Albadyn is now on Facebook. You can find us, get real-time information on how Beta Testing is going, and other cool stuff.

Secondly, we are also available on Amazon. The Players Handbook and the Event Coordinator’s Handbook each have cool stuff in them, especially the Players Handbook, which has exclusive artwork, an exclusive Class, and some Exclusive Items. Feel free to buy them and support the game! They are relatively inexpensive as far as things go, so check em out!

So, these new Monsters are tough. I have quite a few Leveled Adventurers, and the Shadow Legion keeps pace, even with the Mythic Adventurers I have. If you want a challenge, its there now.

But the Shadow Legion’s Warfare Battalion only has three Minion Monsters and one Boss. Isn’t that low? Yes it is. But there is already a new Battalion in development, so look us up on Facebook (@legendsofalbadyn) for the in-progress updates on that.

God Bless, and Happy Halloween! Got some nice treats ready for my players!

The New Master Challenge: Ivan Stormmaster

In a dark, isolated tower, a master Sorcerer has spent dozens of years studying magics of all natures. Far from heroic, Ivan Stormmaster is famed for his nasty disposition and his sheer heinous power. Ivan seeks people brave enough to face him so he can test his new spells and make sure he is still as powerful as he thinks he is.

Ivan Stormmaster (Epic Ascendant Sorcerer)

HP: 8

Bonuses: +7/6, Range 8

Ability 1: Stormwave: Deal 1 Damage to every single Adventurer in the Battle, regardless of where they are. 1 Free Use per Battle.

Ability 2: Shadows of Fallen Glory: Bring 5 1 HP +6/2 Shades into Battle. You may place them anywhere on the board. 2 Uses per Battle.

Ability 3: Thunderous Presence: Whenever an Adventurer becomes Adjacent to Ivan, they take 1 Damage.

Ability 4: Drain Life: Deal 2 Damage to an Adventurer and Heal Ivan 2 HP. Usable 3 Times per Battle. Range 6

Ability 5: Paralyze: One Adventurer cannot move for 3 Rounds. Usable once per Battle. Range 8

Reward for Defeating Ivan: 12,000 Gold per Adventurer.

 

(The next Master Challenge is here! If you recall in May we had a Master Challenge, well this is the then-promised successor. The Master will be here for one week and one week only, from October 20th to October 27th at 6:00 PM. Good luck!)

Legends of Albadyn Year Two

Well, This is the start of Legends of Albadyn’s second year. Wow. It seems like yesterday at six in the morning on August 28th of 2016. I cannot believe it.

But here we are. What comes next? Seems like Albadyn is in pretty good shape. Our Beta closed up pretty nice, but there is still some content we need to test out before it can be released.

But, I have to tell you all about this stuff that I am hoping to come out with in the next few months.

Quest 5: the finale for the current Quest Arc, bringing Infernas’ story to an end, preferably at the edge of an Adventurer’s blade.

New Items: I want to release some new weapons, but I have to test them before I can do it, otherwise they will be unbalanced.

New Monster Faction: This is the big thing. I want to release a super-tough Faction of Monsters for those of us who like a challenge. Name is all I can release, but I will release that: The Black Crown Army. They are members of an Adventurer Guild that went over to the dark side. They intimidate the Bandits, the Ash Cult, and they are not to be trifled with.

New Mode: Challenge Mode will be coming along soon. Challenge mode features pre-built rooms designed by me to bring you a hard challenge with a big payoff, including a chance for Mythic Gear.

Looking forward to another year.

Yes. Yes we did.
