New Content & Updates for October 2018
September has just flown by, can you believe it?! Either way, we're rapidly approaching the witching hour... or rather, the witching month! It's time for autumn weather (or springtime, for our southern hemisphere friends) and pumpkins, skeletons, and all kinds of other spooky things. We're celebrating with some new features here at the Vault, and hope to have a celebration of Halloween later in the month!
Oh, and for our donors—you all earned yourselves 215 Quills this month, holy cow!!! Since this is a lot of Quills and we have a lot of people to send them to, please note that it may take up to a week for you to receive yours, but we're trying our hardest to get them to you as soon as possible. As far as this months rewards, we have some great stuff in store!
You can donate at any time by visiting the link in the sidebar, or heading to this link.
★ New & Returning Features
- Skill Certifications have returned! - Venture out to the Story Starters forum to, well, get started! Donors this month will also receive a "discount" and have to complete fewer threads for Skill Certifications, so now's a great time to check them out!
- Three new Advanced Skills have been added - Players wishing to really expand their character's knowledge can now apply for a skill certification in Dragonology, Lycanthology, or Vampirology.
- Special Abilities have returned - Ever dreamed of your character becoming an animagus or occlumens? Head on over to the Story Starters forum to get started!
- Roleplay Bingo has also returned! - That's right, it's back and better than ever! Test out your creativity by filling out your Bingo card. This feature is also found in the Story Starters forum.
- Introducing your Curio Cabinet! - Players who have been with us a long time may remember the popularity of "Trinkets" back in the day, and we've reintroduced this popular feature by way of the new Curio Cabinet! All donors for the Fall/Winter 2018 season will receive 3 curios for their cabinet, which can be viewed on your account profile for your OOC account—some of you may have received some already! These fun objects can be collected, traded, and used to show off how much you participate around the vault and will be given out for special events, challenges, donation rewards, and more.
★ Feature Changes & Updates
Resource Library Updates
- We're waving farewell to Vaultkeeper Kay who has decided to step down to spend time with her remaining limbs. We appreciate all the help she has given us throughout the years and look forward to seeing her enjoying roleplaying around the forum!
- The Victorian Era forum should now appropriately display complete character tag bars
- Characters employed at Freja's Furniture Forest should now appropriately have tags
- A #video-game-chat channel has been added to the Vault 713 Discord server
This is only part one of what's to come... stay tuned for our next phase in mid October!
We've got even more in store, including...
★ New ways to acquire a job for your character or to earn a promotion
★ Information on Factions, Businesses, and other upcoming returning features
★ A special Halloween event to celebrate the magic of the spookiest season!
★ More? Maybe! You'll have to wait and see!
Happy Roleplaying, and we'll see you on the forums!!!
