After a year of work, we're finally approaching release. We're planning to be ready by the end of the year, hopefully sooner.
Plenty. I've been working on creating a suite of plugins just for The Storm, and currently things are going quite well. Most of them are ready for release, and while they aren't all feature complete, they are perfectly usable. Our very own WinterSolstice has been working hard on a custom spawn town for us, and he is nearing completion, they new spawn promises to provide plenty of opportunities for quests, NPC battles, and trading with others!
If you're interested, check back here from time to time, we'll update this page as needed. When the server launches, our forums will go here as well.
