Of ghosts and gravol
Heya! So, um… this week we kinda had to change up our plans. We were going to release the next quest in the search for the professor, but unfortunately the beginning of week didn't go the way I had planned. I got punched in the face by a stomach flu and it wiped me out on Monday. By Tuesday I was still K.O.'d and so I asked my wonderful wife to speak to Geo on my behalf. It went something like this:
*spoiler part removed*
Charis: Hey (Charis here) Ghost asked me to sign in & let you know that he's "in & out" today… lol - stomach flu… I'm gonna go wake him up & medicate him again in a min though so I'll ask him.
Geo: oooh ouch, ok
Charis: Gravol knocks him out - lol
Geo: I think he has Aika mostly done, so we can do that this week so it's easy on him.
Charis: Once he sleeps that off he'll be fine, I think.
~some time later~
Charis: He's slightly incoherent but he said "Yah, tell her that… tell her… um… yeah, it should probably have a… quest in it. No, it should have a … tell her probably that…" lol
Geo: yeaaah, let's plan on that so it's an easy week. I'll check in with him tomorrow then, have him sleep for now
So.. SURPRISE! We're releasing Aika Village this week, lol. Geo is laughing maniacally right now because the cliffhanger she wrote at the end of last week's quest will be extended! Hehe, so evil. Anyway, you'll be able to travel to Aika via the gryphon in Falconreach. It's a quaint little beach town on the East coast. Here you'll meet Lilka, captain of a small ferry, who will take you to Sho Nuff island. In the future, Aika will be tied in to a large walkaround that connects Valencia to the Sandsea, and also to Willowshire. Not sure if there will be a quest this week since we lost a lot of time, so my apologies. Next week will be great though!
