Update #113: Sprawling World

Update #113 is a small story release in order to tie up the last loose end before the final story update -- the question lingering in Freeport. If you've been there, you know who we are talking about, so but I won't say much more. if you return to Freeport during Episode 4 after the final trip to the City of the Dead, you'll be able to pass your judgment.

To help make the end of the game faster, we've added a fast travel network stemming from the Fierhold inn. Visit the tents there where you can rest and you'll find options to immediately travel to Brunehorn, Braeyshaulm, Freeport, and the Storm Bastion. Once you've made the trip, you can return to Fierhold from the inn at any of these far flung locations.

While the Wooden Flute is still waiting for its purpose, we've fixed its missing art. We've also fixed a longstanding bug where sometimes the Talents list would get stuck during screen transitions.

- The Crone's story arc is now ready for completion in Freeport after the return from the City of the Dead

Update #112: Shifting Sands

Update #112 brings some re-adjustments to the latest Episode 4 content and rules changes. With this update, we've completely rebuilt the end-game Orcin. They had turned into full-on dodge tanks and were no fun to fight, impossible to hit and even fully cursed, many groups were finding them extremely difficult to kill. With this change, we've made them easier to hit but tougher to kill over all with more HP and more Armor. Now, your curses are needed to help chew through them quickly, as they are in return heavier hitters themselves. All in all, this rebalance goes back to the way Orcin have always been -- heavy hitters, dangerous in large numbers, and heavy on HP but easy to hit.

We have added new 3 AP bows with range 8 to the weapon shops at Fierhold.

We have fixed a bug that was allowing the new Strength-based weaponry to exceed its maximum damage. We also fixed a set of monsters that were using incorrect SFX for their swing and hit sounds. Finally, we fixed a set of monsters that had a visual glitch - an odd red dagger from a yet-to-be-released monster was haunting many of the undead.

We are excited to announce that our supporters on Patreon have cast their votes for the 9th hero -- and she will be a witch! Able to swap into the Kyera/Fyona slot, the witch will be a master of curses and hexes. We will be working closely with the patron crew to determine her exact special powers. However, we won't start any work on this crowd favorite until the Episode 4 story arc is complete.

- Completely rebuilt the Orcin monsters in Episode 4 -- easier to hit, heavier armor, heavy hitters in return
- Improved bows for sale in Fierhold -- now include 2 additional 3 AP range 8 bows
- Fixed issue where Strength-based minimum damage could exceed weapon's max damage
- Fixed odd red dagger floating under all undead monsters
- Fixed a set of monsters that were using incorrect attack SFX

About This Game

Command your party of four heroes as they fight to protect the last remnants of humanity. Born in a time of warring gods and dark powers, your four unlikely heroes embark on a grim journey set in the sprawling and immense post-apocalyptic medieval world of Steel.

It is the dawn of the Seventy First Year after the world has fallen. Four of the Thirteen Gods rose up against their creator, the All-Father, and destroyed him in a cataclysmic event. In the following years of darkness and ruin, the kingdoms of man fell in war and flame. In the final days before all was lost, under the guidance of an ancient order of druids, the survivors retreated to a mysterious underground labyrinth; the Underdeep. Now, in the Underdeep, the last remnants of humanity are scratching out a living and trying to rebuild a society, but are quickly discovering that evil has followed them beneath the surface.

Heroes of Steel is a tactical turn-based RPG in which you lead a group of four unique characters, each with their own talents, special powers, and abilities on their quest through the world of Steel.
