Shroud Of The Avatar Release 20 → Finding Solania, Random Encounter & Solania Found

Shroud Of The Avatar Release 20 → Finding Solania, Random Encounter & Solania Found

Finding Solania

I had some minor difficulties finding Solania on the Overland Map and it's mainly because I was not familiar with the layout of the land. I'm sure after spending a few more hours just exploring and wandering on the Overland Map will make it more familiar to me.

Random Encounter

I experienced a Random Encounter while searching for Solania on the Overland Map. The Random Encounter pulled me into a scene where a bunch of wolves were waiting for me.


I fought a couple of wolves, skinned and took their hides after killing them and went out of the scene. It was a very quick Random Encounter. In fact, waiting for the loading screen to finish loading took longer. LOL.

Solania Found

After getting lost on the Overland Map, I had to back track and went back to where I started. From there, I followed a different path and, this time, I was able to finally find Solania.

Going To Solania

The reason why I was going to Solania was to deliver mail and to do other things. Unfortunately, I don't remember what those other things are. LOL. I should have posted about it after I recorded and uploaded the gameplay video about this topic.

Anyway, going to Solania means getting out of Soltown and travelling across the Overland Map.


Soltown Exit

I did not stay long in Soltown. After talking to a few non-player characters, I immediately followed the path towards the exit. I did not know where the exit was but getting out of Soltown was also not very difficult.

Overland Map

Exiting Soltown means entering the Overland Map. For some reason, I feel that the Overland Map is getting better and better at each release.

Some players don't like the Overland Map and prefers a point and click map travel system but not me. I kinda like the Overland Map. Getting lost while exploring the Overland Map is just one of the things that make Shroud Of The Avatar fun to play.

Shroud Of The Avatar Release 20 → Not Optimized, Single Player, Soltown, Mail & More

Shroud Of The Avatar Release 20 → Not Optimized, Single Player, Soltown, Mail & More

Not Optimized

The graphics of Shroud Of The Avatar is far from optimized. If you are not careful then you can accidentally cook your graphics card.

Single Player Online

Shroud Of The Avatar is not just a multiplayer online game. It's also a single player online game and, that means, you can play the game solo even though you are still online or connected to the server.


Soltown

Soltown is currently the starting town of Shroud Of The Avatar. Remember, the game is still in Pre-Alpha and, that means, the starting town can still change before the game is released.

Mail

One of the quest that I got from Soltown was delivering mail to Solania. As with most NPCs or non-player characters, they are too freaking lazy to deliver their mail themselves.

Shroud Of The Avatar Release 20 → Another Beginning, Solace Bridge, Edvard & More

Shroud Of The Avatar Release 20 → Another Beginning, Solace Bridge, Edvard & More

Another Beginning

One of the drawbacks in playing a Pre-Alpha game like Shroud Of The Avatar is the unexpected wipe. Even if the developer announces it, it still doesn't change the fact that players will have to re-start or start from the beginning of the game again.

Starting all over again can be frustrating specially for those players who spent hours and days building up their characters and wealth in the game. Fortunately, I don't spend a lot of time playing Shroud Of The Avatar and that is why I'm not really affected by any kind of unexpected wipe or wipes.


Solace Bridge

Solace Bridge or Battle Of Solace Bridge to be exact is the starting scene of Shroud Of The Avatar and escaping the scene alive is a player's very first quest.

Of course, this first quest is also like an introductory quest to Shroud Of The Avatar. It gives new players information about the game through the help window and the quest is very simple and easy to finish.

Edvard

Edvard is the first NPC players will meet in Shroud Of The Avatar. Players will meet him twice at Solace Bridge. For some unknown reason, there are two Edvards in Solace Bridge. One is inside the fort and the other one is outside the fort. LOL!
