The Ashes of Creation The February development update stream includes updates on Intrepid Studios’ development status and incremental progress, but doesn’t skimp on revelations, with Py’Rai launching and diving into the breeding system in game.
Intrepid’s growth has allowed the studio to begin ramping up some aspects of production as they move into the next phase of alpha testing. The livestock system is one of the major systems that has undergone changes since it was originally published in terms of the concept. It came from a proposal with the design team and was inspired by some real science and genetics and if that can be transformed and adapted for something that might be based on realism realistic and included as an option in the game.
The system in alpha 2 will start with taming. The game’s revealed artisan system already includes collecting, handling, and crafting. Taming will be part of the collective discipline. Breeding the animals you tame will include some real-world genetics inspiration along with world magic and some gameplay sparks to keep things cool. should be interesting, fun and useful. Things like traits, appearance, abilities, combat effectiveness, etc. can be things you can pass on. No two creatures will be exactly alike.
Once you get to grips with it a bit and the traits and desired outcomes become apparent in the next generation, you’ll be able to make a decision on how to proceed. The best creatures will have lineage from all over Verra, encouraging extensive sourcing, as creatures from several locations may have the best traits. Rare mutations can also occur, even to the point of creating entirely new organisms.
At the end of the stream, we get an updated, reworked introduction to the Py’Rai race, with some answers on what we can expect. All Py’Rai will have these antlers/branches, as a distinction between wood elves. However, customization will allow you to tweak their appearance.
