Also on Saturday, there was lots of good Q&A and some competition for high score on Durgon Pinball:

Dragon Audit Livestream w/ Community VO

On Sunday, I played through the first part of Dragon Audit, while community members BigApplePie and Scratso provide live voice over. Skip to 3:39 for start of game

Thanks to everyone who participated in the meetups over the weekend!

=68 Landrush Schedule

landrushThe new =68 map is created and ready to go!  Everyone can access it, regardless of level, via the telepad hidden away at the southwest of Root.

This map is more build-focused, and as such does not spawn mobs and has a totally flat terrain.

While everyone can view the map now, no one can build until their Landrush phase opens up.  If you try to place before your Landrush slot opens, you’ll get a countdown of exact time remaining.  Here is the schedule for landrush:

  • 1/6 – Ultimate Landrush ($500+ during Novemberbit)
  • 1/7 – Super Landrush  ($200+ during Novemberbit)
  • 1/8 – Normal Landrush  ($70+ during Novemberbit)
  • 1/9 – Open to All

Vote for your Exclusive Novemberbit Hat

Thanks to everyone who joined for the hatstream today.  We made SEVEN potential NovemberBit hats.

The Novemberbit reward page has been updated with a voting system.  If you’ve backed $49+, you can vote for the official Novemberbit Exclusive Reward Hat.  The winning hat will only be available to the $49+ backers.

The hats that don’t win will either be discarded, made available for public purchase, or added to my secret hat stockpile.
