Dev Blog #24: Suggest A Feature, Tavern Tuesdays Round-Up, Community Spotlight and Sneak Peek Screens!

Hello plagued ones and welcome to Dev Blog #24. We’ve got a new suggestions submission feature on our website, an updated Events Archive page, a Community Spotlight and some more sneak peek screenshots of our upcoming Version V0.12 update!

Suggest A Feature For The Black Death!

Have a suggestion for the SIG team? You can now send suggestions to the team through our handy form on our website. Simply give your suggestion a name/title and a good description explaining your thoughts and hit submit.

You can check the status of each suggestion over on our Trello board. As a team, we will go through each suggestion and discuss if it is something that we would like to add into The Black Death and if it is possible.

When a suggestion has been moved to the “Suggestions that have been implemented” category this means that these suggestions have been created and are ready to go into a new build of the game. You can also vote on different suggestions and leave comments with your own thoughts and feedback on each card. So far, we have seen some great ideas which have sparked great discussions here in the SIG office.

Surviving The Plague With Isaac Jewton!

Josh Hay (AKA Sir Isaac Jewton) is a spotlight blogger over at and the owner of The Gaming Gospel. Take a look back and catch up with Isaac Jewton in his latest look at The Black Death with part 12 of Survive The Plague. Isaac promises more for the series soon, so check back regularly for updates.

Survive The Plague… [P12]

“…Let’s get down to business shall we? I’ve looked at my list and I the three things I am going to talk about in this post are: Balance, Classes, and Game World. I will be talking about balance first… ”

You can also find his story, The Doctor Of Mercia, over on his website. It’s an epic tale spanning four chapters in length so far and we recommend a comfortable chair for this one!

The Doctor Of Mercia [P1]

“…As he went on and on mixing and trying new things, the monks eventually just went to prayer and gave up on finding a cure that could be mass produced. They had given up. It was just my father at this point… ”

Be sure to follow Sir Isaac Jewton for updates and posts!

Plagued Plants Mini Update

We have a quick update on our operation: plant revival. Sadly, we could not rescue our friend, we tried everything but it was too late, the plague spread quickly and all efforts were lost!

That’s all for this week’s Dev Blog, see you all in Mercia!

  1. I suggest adding a couple zeros to the loot in Svalberg so there is enough to divide up it’s gonna take an army to clear out the area. 😉
