Shroud of the Avatar - Update of the Avatar
Portalarium has posted the lastest Update of the Avatar with news about the Blade of the Avatar novel, combat design, immortality fruit, and black friday goodies.
Blade of the Avatar Novel, Installment 1 – Prologue
The first installment of the serialized SotA novel, Blade of the Avatar (BotA), written by Tracy Hickman & Richard Garriott, is now available for download! Digital version of BotA is included as an Early Founder reward at all pledge levels $25 or higher, and is also available in the Add-On Store for everyone. Early Founders can download the first installment at the new Early Founder Rewards area in the community forums (accessible to Early Founders only; Early Founders are backers that pledged any amount by May 20, 2013). If you are a Kickstarter backer you’ll need to have your Kickstarter account linked to the SotA website (click here for instructions to link your Kickstarter account).
If you purchased BotA in the Add-On Store, then you will find a download link for the first installment on your personal SotA account page (log into SotA website and click on “Account” in the top-right corner).
- If the deck system ends up not being fun, what will you do with combat?
- Will I be able to build multiple decks?
- Can I switch decks during combat?
- When can I try it?!?
- I worry the UI will draw my attention away from combat
- Why do some things make skills “Noble”?
- Combos sound cool, is it always just 2 skills or do they go deeper?
- Can skills be used out of combat?
- How will I set “Locked Slots” and how do they relate to the number of skills in my deck?

Black Friday Weekend Promotions
We have some great promotions lined up for Black Friday Weekend (& Cyber Monday)! Check these out:
15% Pledge Bonus on all New Pledges and Pledge Upgrades!
For all new pledges or pledge upgrades that you purchase for yourself, or as a gift, between 12:00 am CST November 27 and 12:00 am CST December 3, we will add an additional 15% bonus to your pledge account! For example, if you purchase a new Founder pledge for $65, we will add an additional $10 to your pledge account ($65 times 15% equal $9.75 rounded up to $10; our pledge package doesn’t handle cents so we round up to nearest dollar).

15% Discount on Add-On Store Items!
We’ve dropped the prices in the Add-On Store by an additional 15% during the promotion period, so now would be a great time to get that special item you’ve been drooling over (or as a gift for some lucky person).
