Hey there! So as some of the regulars of Casual Quest (and a few others) may have noticed, a few months ago I took on the project of assisting IainPeregrine on his beloved Casual Quest. Since the last stable version, 1.30, a decent amount of changes have been made, particularly to make gameplay flow a bit better and to help new players (and experienced players with a bit of amnesia) understand exactly what each class does. There were also a number of bug fixes to go along (1.32-1.33) to make the latest version stable (relatively).

Version 1.33
• Every time a player changes classes, a new link will appear in the chatbox. "CauTi0n is now playing as the Ninja!" When the link is clicked, a popup browser appears with the information of the class clicked, including tier, the proper types of cards needed, and each skill (with a description of the skill and its cost). This has proven useful for many, as it is a reliable way to understand what each skill does without wasting aura to understand what each skill is/does.
• Tombstone life is doubled. This was placed into effect particularly because as players would get further through the waves, it became impractical to save teammates - the doubled lifespan of tombstones should definitely help here.
• Skills became significantly modularized, and therefore skill costs are now dependent on character rather than the actual skill. This new system assists in allowing the game to flow better.
• The scoreboard now updates scores properly again.
• Casual Quest is on Facebook! Go like it.
-- 1.31 introduced bugs regarding a few things:
• Flame arrow works properly now.
• All Summons (Skeleton, Elementals, etc.) behaviors are fixed.
• No classes will be charged with double aura cost for a skill anymore. This was a an interesting bug, but a quick fix all the same.


A note on customs: For now, IainPeregrine and I have both agreed that we will not be accepting ideas/icons for customs. It is unknown currently if this will be an option at a further time, but currently we are not accepting payments for customs/re-colours.

I like your facebook Casual Quest, I would give you a tweet, but I can't find the Thumbs up...I didn't expect that..
We had a casual quest event with BYONDcast...
I couldn't make the event to know whether it happened or no, but I thought I heard two people say that they were there but it didn't happen..

I guess they just missed the time frame. (First post edited)
Boo I want a new custom. :(
Very cool.

What's the "mana" thing you keep talking about, though?
Iain: Aura. Crap, I forgot the actual term as I wrote this. Edited.
