Community Update Day!

Just as a reminder, these updates are smaller and are more focused on the community.  Whereas Development updates are centralised on adding in new features, expanding upon or adjusting existing features, and implementing new artwork and coding, Community updates are meant to introduce weekly raffles, new weekly raffle studs, new polls, and showcase some minor changes and bug fixes that have been made in the past week.

Official Wolvden Raffle!

Our latest weekly raffle is out!  Each person can purchase 1 ticket at maximum to have a chance at winning a neat prize for the amazing price of 5 SC per ticket! Good luck!  You can find the official raffle here!
This raffle will automatically end on 2023-11-17 at 00:30.

Raffle Stud Winners and New Raffle Stud!

Congratulations to the players that won a breeding with last week's raffle stud!  You'll know if you won, as you'll have received a Game Notification in your inbox informing you of such! As a reminder, the previous raffle stud's exclusive attributes were Bloodhound eyes and the Black Cougar, Gold Wings, and Red Panda markings!  Gold Wings is now able to be applied via Random Marking Applicators and Total Shuffles.

I think the addition of a karma/alignment system isn't a bad idea - but calling it karma and having it be strictly about good and bad seems really out of place for the setting of the game. The word and concept has religious roots and doesn't in my mind mesh well with the other elements of the game. I'd be more interested in seeing a more nuanced alignment system that doesn't deem your lead wolf as just either good or bad/evil, but maybe rather an active opportunist or more of an observer etc. A lot of the interactions in explore seem to have a "good" and "evil" choice (e.g. chomp or watch the butterfly or warm or scare away the loon) but a lot of the "bad" choices are just realistic actions for a wolf trying to feed itself or its pack. To my understanding this has been one of the gripes with the karma system in Lioden. Making the feature togglable would be great if people would rather opt out of it.

ETA: this is just my understanding of karma as someone who hasn't played Lioden and has learned about it through second hand information. Would love to have an official explanation on how karma works on Lioden and how it would be applies to wolvden.

As a side note: Any idea on what the situation is with fixing the coigreach cave encounter backgrounds? The issue has been under investigation for a year now.

5th Option...I have no idea what Karma would add or detract from WD since I've never played LD.
An explanation of how Karma works would help.

Naava's is the only info I have to go on.

ETA ~ Thanks for the clarification Naava. I did think you'd played LD from reading your reply.
