S.MG - Eulora v0.0.4

Thursday, 20 February, Year 6 d.Tr. | Author: Mircea Popescu

A further alpha version of Eulora is released today. The bundle can be downloaded at the usual place : minigame.bz/eulora/binaries/. The current bundle weighs ~500 Mb, includes a linux 64bit binaryi and source code with instructions for building the client. Should you wish to maintain binaries for other platforms please get in touch!

Today’s release introduces :

  • The full set of vitals (HP, BP, SP and MP). These are intended to work as better approximations of a character's health, with HP being a sort of "bone health" and representing how well one holds up to blunt trauma, whereas BP is more of a "blood health" and representing how well one holds up to well... you get the idea. Thus poison would more likely hurt BP, as would spears and javelins, whereas a good hit with a hammer, or a deep fall would hurt HP more. And obviously, a suit of plate armor would be perfectly able to protect from arrows, so no BP loss, but not quite as able to protect from a maul. Which is why mauls even existed in the first place, historically. SP is more of an esoteric notation, ghosts and other immaterial evils interact with it. MP acts as spellcasting volume control whereas the two types of stamina simply act as a rate control in their respective fields. Unlike the other three, these three vitals can be depleted without killing the character. The actual effects are only partially implemented as of yet.
  • The full set of attributes (STRii, ENDiii, CONiv, INTv, WISvi, INSvii, AGIviii, DEXix, COOx) has also been implemented. These have numerous and interplaying effects downstream.
  • A number of basic skills have been introduced. Players can actually gain experience in these various skills and level them up.
  • Harvestable and craftable items were introduced (about a dozen). Players can pick up raw materials, craft variously.
  • There is an easter egg somewhere which you're cordially invited to find!
  • We've also managed to break sounds something fierce. Working on it though.

Here's some screenshots (click for 1024px) :

    And now to make things interesting : each crafted product entitles the crafter presenting it (as a screenshot, in irc or twitter or w/e) to a 500 ATC prize (limited to 1 per person). Also the first person to get a skill to level 10 gets a 1`000 ATC prize. So... go make things! And stuff!

    1. good.

    1. [...] From his wanderings, Boxy collected the little bits and pieces left behind from what had once been life: a rotten fruit, a piece of bark, a bit of leather, a page from a book. He studied them a long time and he imagined them as something new, something that would be at least of a little use to someone, somewhere, sometimes. Keeping that image of new strong in his mind, Boxy then set to work, to call forth usefulness if not life out of the remains of former beauty and purpose. And he obtained… a Leaky Bottle (for remember, Boxy’s head was leaky itself and he had little to work with in the first place). But leaky as it was and just a bottle as it may be, it was HIS and of his own making, the very first crafted thing Eulora had acquired. For one was Boxy Boxster and he had won the first crafting prize! [...]
