Some improvements have hit the site over the past week... some major, some just tweaks:
Thanks to Adobe's "free-use preview" of Fuse, their developing character design tool, the site is now getting some images of your favourite characters.
So far as it is possible, these images follow the descriptions given in the books to illustrate what various characters would look like. They are now populating to the Main Characters and Secondary Characters sections.
There are some shortcomings. For example although it's possible, it's still really difficult to apply Ren's tattoos and scars. And the controls for eye shape are fairly primordial, so Santani's heritage doesn't exactly leap out at you.

As you probably guessed, this software is nowhere near sufficient to model Bruiser, Burner, or Caecald. If any 3D or digital art whizzes out there fancy a crack, fan art is ALWAYS welcome on the Facebook page.
Some changes and improvements have been made to the site in the past day. As well as various layout and formatting tweaks, the following changes were made:
As anticipated the Throam T-shirts have arrived in the store today, as have the posters with text (Steal from the Devil, List of the Dead, The Ravening Deep, the value packs of those three, and I Dream of Damastion.)
The sharp-eyed might notice lots of prices have dropped since the store first appeared, in particular the poster value pack and the T-shirts.
To make things extra special we are launching the store with some voucher codes. These are valid to the end of May 2016. The codes are:
Further voucher codes are available, but you need to be a member of the official Facebook fan group to access them.
