    Summary: Side content ahoy!

    Recommended level: 26-30

    Update Description

    !0873a_frontline.png

    Note: This is one of those real Frontline updates, where sounds are missing, some graphics are placeholder etc! The gameplay should hold up well, though!

    About the update

    So this is the traditional "side content" update that usually follows a main story update, and as always things got a bit out of hand! First and foremost, the teased chests and secrets of the Lost Ship now has proper rewards, and the cards have their effects implemented. Mixe (the Lost Ship bartender) now also offers a pretty substantial side quest with a total of three rewards.

    Apart from that, for a polished impression we also felt that we wanted to give the world-shifting ability some place outside of the ship. To that end, we've added
    ghosts in Tai Ming and the Pumpkin Woods graveyard
    !

    Oh, and the news everyone has been waiting for: the library is now open!!

    Next Up: We've just now received a big bag of sounds for the ship, so we'll be adding those, and also be completing a fairly big main story cutscene for when you return to the HQ! Since those things got separated from this side content batch, we'll make another Frontline update before the Stable folks get it. Sorry for the wait guys - hopefully the extra polish makes it worth it!

    Oh, cool. That's my build!

    And my potions?

    And my... character design...

    I have become yet another statistic to identity theft. :eek:

    Yet another indeed! I think basically every character I have is from some save file I received for bug fixing :D

    Trying to decipher the hidden message of the skill keybinds spelling "CASH" but I'm getting nowhere :oops:
