Spotlights for December 2020

The final Spotlight Soul for 2020 is Tattersall Valentine! Puppies are often tough to write, but little Tate involved in some shenanigans in Salsola that have made for great reads!

And our Community Spotlight is Howlykin! He's a regular presence in NC's Discord and does wonderful research into healing knowledge for both of his Songthorn brothers. He's always brainstorming ideas and has been helpful in assisting with plotting and engagement!

Lossë is the son of Saga D'Angelo and Arran Fir-Chlis, born alongside his brother Meril in early December of 2020. While his existence was not planned nor discussed, he was never the less welcomed into both sides of his family with open arms. The young boy is playable in early February and is a blank slate with plenty of ideas to be expanded upon! Will he be a stoic, headstrong diplomat like his mother? Or a down to earth farm-boy like his father? Or maybe even his scholarly eldest brother will have some influence on him?

News & Updates

Table of Contents

Winter arrives in 'Souls solidly this month, with snowfall occurring more regularly as the temperatures drop. After the dramatic disappearance of Death Mountain, the land seems to be quiet...for now. As prey animals begin to face the hardship of the months ahead, hunting season begins in earnest for predators.

bNPC Updates

Last month's new arrivals have settled in Ethereal Eclipse, felling trees and constructing shelters to protect them (and their goods) from the coming winter. Their nearly-finished dock seems to be a masterful feat, but these southerners are still new to the area and may not be as prepared for the season as they think.

You may have noticed that these characters are having some adventures in LASKY! While we still encourage players to use the bNPCs as NPCs, there are new opportunities for players seeking more interactive options – threading with the bNPCs themselves! Check out what current prompts and options are available in the bNPC topic.
