Announcements about major changes in Haven & Hearth.

Game Development: Runs Like Wind

We've been developing, and here's what's new.

New Implementations
-----------------------
  • Environment boosts: Scattered across the environment there are now various kinds of buffs and debuffs that you can pick up -- by walking over them -- for temporary dis-/advantage.
  • Speed boost: You run faster for a spell, or until you stop.
  • Stamina boost: You replenish your stamina.
  • Trip Root: The root trips you over for a brief stun.
  • Hide Grass: You can dodge into the tall grass and become invisible for some time. You won't know yourself whether you are visible or not. Speed and movement increase your chances of becoming visible again. Attacking or the like breaks the invisibility.
  • The idea behind these implementations is to increase the amount of game involved in flight and pursuit.
  • Added "Raider's Cap", helmet.

Key Fixes
-----------------------
  • You now move faster while moving downhill, and slower while moving uphill.
  • Drinking no longer interrupts running. It does, however, reduce your speed somewhat.
  • "Red-handed" now instantly becomes "Outlaw" if you are knocked out, allowing you to hearth home, and the like.
  • You may now combine curiosities. By holding a curiosity and right-clicking another one of the same kind, you may fuse them into one, more powerful curiosity. The new curiosity will increase in LP, but also somewhat in time, weight, and XP. EDIT: Ninja removed this due to crazy. Will think it over again.

Small Fixes
-----------------------
  • Better light in cellars.
  • Buffed Druid's Helm armor values.
  • You may now plant Poppy caps in burrows, as suggested here.

In the Pipe
-----------------------

Enjoy!

Sorry, animals are currently completely unaffected by all these things, even hiding. (They can smell you, of course.)

I must admit that for a second or two I felt like I was reading an April's Fools joke :D

After the initial bizarre feeling, though... I guess I kinda like it.
Will have to wait and see.

But thanks for these:

Woah. There's a lot of potentially strong game changers in this.

Looking forward to seeing it played out.

when you say this, i assume you mean animals can't hide in the grass- or am i gonna find myself running into grass and still getting agroed by boars and bears?
The sum of my experience is comprised up of more skeletons on my own claim then alot of you guys have wood blocks invested in your wall. But even though these skeles show i am a bad player- i still strive to continue through this vile territory in the hopes that one day i will have an army big enough to find you and murder all you know
