Unearthed Almanac: Boding Sea

Unearthed Almanac will run once weekly until I finish up some of the more boring aspects of game development (item lists, back-end coding, etc…). Enjoy!

Overview

The Boding Sea is a massive underground ocean, and the unlikely home of a mysterious race of bird men. Although helpful, the bird men speak in stilted sentences and have archaic traditions. Travelers must tread carefully as one poorly placed step can plunge you into the deep and frigid waters of the sea.

    • I will have either a new Unearthed Almanac or some other sort of progress update on Monday.

      I’m just coming off of two conventions, a trip to Calgary, and a couple major life decisions, but things should return to normal very shortly.
