Cronix might be magic, or a cyborg... there may be several clones of him... I'm not sure. He has fully embraced his volunteer dev role, though, and is creating many, many awesome new things for you guys!
You know all those different essences you've been collecting from re-arted Book 3 randoms? Stone, Rock, Water, Nature, Magic and more! Cronix has been working on weapons for the merges for those! The base, initial merge versions will be the simple blades and staves but the final merges will have amazing anamation and there should be even more weapons added as time goes on!
The final versions of the weapons!
Cronix has also been working on NPCs! In addition to helping Dracelix with the wind elf NPCs for Sulen'Eska, he's also created side facing versions of two of Falconreach's residents... the Book 3 versions of Aria and Ash!
