Ain't about the ch-ching ch-ching, ain't about the b-bling b-bling.

Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues has been a Thing for a whole year now, and developer Portalarium is understandably pretty proud of its efforts; its April 2013 Kickstarter pulled in over $2 million, and 11 months later, March 2014 was its most lucrative non-Kickstarter month to date, with backers dropping over $330,000 into the RPG’s pockets.
If you’d like to contribute to Shroud of the Avatar’s development it’s best to get a wriggle on. Portalarium is running a number of last-chance promotions over the next few days allowing you to buy in at the same price as less tardy backers. Time’s also running out to buy founder’s packages at any price, thereby gaining access to variosu exclusive goodies and bragging rights. After April 7 everything will be full price, and founder’s packages will be gone for good.
We’re expecting Shroud of the Avatar later this year, although we’re still not entirely sure what it is. It’s the spiritual successor to Ultima, but if you use the term “MMO” Richard “Lord British” Garriott gets about ten different kinds of upset, which is mysterious.
