Book 3: Reimagined: One Step Forward

Hey there, heroes!

With this month's reimagined release, we're starting to enter the "major rewrite" phase of Book 3's main story!

This arc, from "After the War" to "Unbound", is going to be completely rewritten and reworked, beginning with "One Step Forward"!



It's been a little bit since the Siege of Haven, and Kara SuLema has requested your presence in the Sulen'Eska war room.

It seems the Vind has been doing well, gaining members, growing in reputation... but your meeting is cut short by a rather intimidating fairy!

Rewards have also haad their levels updated.

Head over to Sulen'Eska and speak to Kara to play the new quest: "One Step Forward"!



Also this week, armor customization has received an update!



Ninja has two new options, Elite and Elite 2. Color custom Ninja will be folded into base Ninja at a later date.

DragonLord's Vilmor customization is now color custom! Also, a few other DragonLord customizations have been updated and tweaked to look better than before.



Going forward, Sulen'Eska and Book 3's main story will be receiving some major changes. The Espina Rosa storyline will be adjusted and moved to the shears, while the DragonRider War and Saellah will be removed.

This will instead be replaced with a new arc that will lead the hero to Swordhaven in a less... roundabout way.

Quest rewards will remain in game, transposed to the new quests (and in some cases renamed).

Unfortunately, this does mean the next 7 or so reimagined story releases will be a bit larger in scale. While we want to finish reimagining book 3 as much as (and maybe more so than you!), we still have a long way to go.

Thank you for your patience and support, and we hope you enjoy what's to come!



Also this week, bug fixes!
  • Fixed an issue where using an on attack special when facing left would cause the weapon to appear upside down.
  • Fixed an issue where loading equipment would put your pet on cooldown.
  • Fixed an issue with DeathKnight where swapping pets would remove Relic Barrier.
  • Fixed an issue in "Hunt for Atgno" where the Guilt-Ridden Fiance enemy would not be clickable in battle.
  • Fixed issues where enemy encounters in the quest "Surewould" would occasionally not match the overworld enemy.
  • Fixed an issue where the Kid Dragon npc in Book 3 Falconreach had the wrong color on some horns/spikes when talking to Twilly.
  • Fixed an issue where Technomancer was not recalibrating after drinking potions.
  • Fixed an issue in Desolation ruins where guests and pets were on the wrong layers.
  • Fixed a lot of issues with Corrupted Davey.
  • Fixed an issue where leaving the Armor Paint room could sometimes result in unintended color combinations.
  • Fixed an issue where changing your dragon's colors in the Armor Paint room would not properly update your armor's colors that used dragon colors.
  • The Rose Agent and Bound Dragon fight has had its damage and healing numbers reduced.
And that's all for this week!

This was a very nice quest, thank you staff.
This is a great example of the differences in Reimagined; Melissa's characterization is very different this time around and I'm excited to see how the staff continues to tease out differences between the various Vind characters going forward.

Wow, I had no idea the rewrite was going alllll the way to Unbound! If memory serves, that was the second-to-last main-story quest while Geo was the head writer of the team, with the last being The Beast. I suppose this will have implications concerning the Timeline if Espina Rosa is to be moved to The Shears. Will that mean Leon will plan the Hero's infiltration into Espina Rosa after Shear Destruction instead of Kara? Will Kara even get herself captured this time? I can only speculate.

Honestly, after looking over the dialogue in The Fairy Court and B.F.C... the writing in those quests certainly hasn't aged very well at all. No wonder everything between After the War and InspecZion was such a blur... And on top of that, the reminiscence that Saellah and Akanthus have about their supposedly shared past is very inconsistent to what we know about Akanthus now. And his whole deal about enslaving all of those dragons despite being a Dragonlord kinda raises more questions than it answers. So I think you've made the right call omitting Saellah.

spoiler:

And also HOL' UP A SEC we're seeing Jaania and Amadeus so soon already! You guys practically moved their dialogue from... (uhhh was it the Calamity Saga? I can't remember)... right into this quest! It will be interesting to see what they get up to between now and then.


Overall, these are some pretty massive changes to the story but I have faith that you two will do a great job and I look forward to seeing what you have planned!

So are these quests are just gone? Or are they being moved somewhere else?

spoiler:

I absolutely loved the new Melissa characterization and the reactions others had to her!

Melissa reaction to the comment about her height, and Kara's flat 'Private. Counsel.' were especially great.

Helpful!


I didn't realize the rewriting would be this big after the Rose Dragon War. But that is good, as that part of the Main story is clearly the weakest link. Melissa's characterization is now so much better and I do look forward seeing what the opening act of Sulen'Eska has to offer.

And moving the Espina Rosa arc to Shears is very clever, as the characters in that storyline were mostly from Leon's questline. It wasn't bad, but our Hero being there for few weeks only to release a guy that said "Akanthus lies, go to Swordhaven" wasn't best writing this game has to offer. It also explains the Rose Pajamas quest and why Leon has it.

And I must add, Dove's art was wonderful as always.

Dragon war being removed is big news but honestly I appreciate it. No part of that questline made any sense and the Dravir explanation (if you can call it that) was always pretty disappointing to me. Looking forward to the questline that replaces it.
