    I don't know about the final game, but on demo, looks like you can't rest scum in solasta. So i wanna suggest fast animations for base attacks and cantrips and make this good but longer animations for abilities/spell/spell like abilities, since you will not cast a fireball every round, my guess is a fireball each 10 minutes, have a longer animation for fireball will not make the game slower. In fact, will make it feels more important than a cantrip. And since you see a lot of times of base attacks/cantrips, a fast animation can speed up the encounter and make the combat less repetitive. Just my opinion.

    edit : ToEE had a option called concurrent turns, that makes enemies take turns simultaneously. Is another interesting suggestion.

    The premise for this game is incredible! If the devs can keep the quality up throughout the entirety of the game's length it will definetely be something worth playing.

    Hope's up!

    This game, Realms Beyond, Encased and Stoneshard are shaping up to be amazing rpgs. Can't wait for them to release.

    Yes, I selected the same. I suppose Gold Box counts as pre-2005 D&D

    It might be hybris but it's hard for me to see how this could be a total dud - if it gets released, that is

    So wait, Myzzrym, are these Dev Updates the same thing as the monthly recaps you said you were going to publish to Kickstarter? The first one was cross-posted to Kickstarter as the November 2019 "Dev Journal", but this one wasn't.

    We do 1 Dev Update every 2 weeks, but only 1 post per month on Kickstarter to avoid spamming. Pledge Manager and Physical Item stuff is the exception because people need to know asap, but otherwise our Kickstarter Updates will be recaps of the articles we posted during the previous month.

    Hey there folks,

    The Solasta Campaign on RPG Codex is over! Thanks to you we raised an additional $780, which is always appreciated (time to buy myself a new gaming chair). On a more serious note, you should have received an invitation from CrowdOx if you participated in this campaign. For those who already backed us on Kickstarter before, I have added funds to your already existing account (and you should have received a mail from us to confirm that). Note that we used your Paypal email addresses (in case you're checking your RPG Codex email).

    Hopefully there won't be any issues but if there are, just ping me right here I'll be around. Once again thanks a ton guys.

    I'll end this message with a little gem I received on Twitter sometimes ago:

    Animations look really good for an indie CRPG.

    Oh lord no. No no no no no. It just so happens that our oldest model is Garrad (the human fighter), so we usually default to using him when making gifs internally. Case in point, here is our spellcast animation - it's Garrad as well:

    No class is gender locked. I'll ask our guys to make some gifs with female characters next time, so we get a little more gender equality^^
