Dev Blog #50: Backpack Teaser & Community Reminders

Greetings citizens of Mercia and welcome to Dev Blog #50, what a milestone!

We’ve got a Backpack teaser and reminders on our Community on goings! This week’s Dev Blog is smaller than usual, but expect to see Community Showcase Issue #4 tomorrow!

Backpack Teaser!

From the desk of SIG_Mac, this backpack will be a craftable item found in the Artisan recipe/skill tab. There will be three different backpacks in total, each of these will increase your carry weight in stages. These will be sure to make a fine addition to any adventurers attire!
