Tales of the Wooden Oracle: Clade and the Golden Lance - Part 1

And so it was proclaimed: On the 4th day of the 3rd month of the Year of the Napping Ocelot, King Adaron and Queen Elena would marry, and their two kingdoms join hands forevermore. News spread throughout the kingdoms of Bryghuset and Tynaria and soon both lands were awash in great feelings - the nice happy lovey-dovey kind ... and the not-so-nice "ooh, why'd you invite those losers into my country" kind. 

It was on a Sunday morning that the news reached Clade, with a wicked--


When he awoke, Clade found the morning news scroll lying beside his head, wrapped around a half-brick. He touched his injured head gingerly and cursed the news witch. Then, he unwrapped the scroll.

And like half the country, he exclaimed:

"The Queen!"

followed by, "Getting married!?"

and finally, "To him!?"

He read on, and discovered that the marriage ceremony would be accompanied by an immense festival in Tynaria's capital, with parades, games, entertainers, pegasus rides, and more! There would even be competitions: horse races, team flag capture, burly brawls (including mounted ones!), jousting, and aerial duels.

This improved Clade's mood considerably. He whistled and his mind spun, though a bit wobbly-like, thanks to the news witch and her half-brick.

"That's it. I gotta go. Just gotta go," he said.

He rubbed his hands together, an idea turning itself over in his head like a shiny gold coin. He definitely, definitely couldn't miss this.

Especially when there so much money to be made.

Upcoming Ultimate Unicorn Release

I'm planning to put out another release in the next week or less, this one with some features that I'm pretty excited about.

In an earlier post, I mentioned how I thought the Ultimate Unicorn mod already has great potential for player-versus-player games. The upcoming release will expand on that, with a new gameplay feature and a collection of new items to support it.

Other things to look forward to include a couple of bug fixes, a new language translation, and of course, new custom unicorns. I'm also hoping to have a new wand ready to go, as well as a new mob. These last two might not make it into this release, though, but fingers crossed.

Lastly, the new feature that I'm putting in... it's definitely going to have a skill component.  I'll be posting information to help you understand just how you can beat your friends and enemies. 

Knowing how everything works will give you a big advantage.
