Coven 2.0 & Game Night!

Postby Parallax7 » Wed Apr 18, 2018 7:12 pm


Greetings people of FD ~ April 17th marked the beginning of one of our favored aspirations. Balancing Coven we shall fix the faction that the developers created. In its current state, it is comparable to a sick and dying dog, needing to be put out of its misery. However, we will not do that, no. We shall balance it, and submit a new and improved Coven 2.0!

Notably, the next two weeks will be dedicated to this arduous task. Starting May 1st, testing for Coven 2.0 will commence, and checks and balances, as well as modifications will be made for the entirety of the month. June 1st, the finalized and ‘perfected’ Coven will either be submitted to the testing grounds, or to the FM Community for an FM game that would facilitate a game and test in one.

Start getting to work! We need all of you to help make a better Coven, and residually a better Salem! It is our duty and desire as FD!

•Do not hesitate to message a moderator if you any inquiries concerning these ambitions ~to get better involved and seek a better Coven, and residually better Salem come to our discord!

Game Nights!

In other news ~ to strengthen the hospitality and friendly vibe of our community, every weekend Friday & Saturday, 8 PM - 2 AM EST, we will be having game nights! It is encouraged you participate in these junctions. The game will generally be voted upon by the community. If there’s is a specific game you have in mind, message a moderator your idea. We’re open to anything, really.
