Wuxia/Xianxia novels are usually set in worlds where might makes right and martial arts are a path to god-like power. Other elements often include supplementary arts such as pill-refining and magical weapon smithing, and the pursuit of immortality.

To anyone new (or old and nostalgic) passing through, no, I am not dead. Medically speaking, at least.

I have been on a lengthy break on which I mentally unraveled myself then reraveled myself and was temporarily unable to attend to the game. Being back, I am working on the game once more; and there are major changes in store.

When I first created this game, it was little more than a test for a cultivation system so I could work on getting the feel right. It then turned into an amalgamation of various other systems I also wanted to get to feel the way I envisioned them. Which is to say, Fantastic Martial World as it is at this very moment is basically the same as the Weasley's burrow. Rooms crookedly glued to other rooms, held together with nothing but tacks, glue, and hopeful intentions (and magic).

The major change previously mentioned will take the form of me taking all the experience I've gained smushing together this lovely monstrosity and using it to make a game. I will be working on this game from the ground up using what I've learned from the Frankensteined mess I've been working on up to this point and a greater deal of foresight to make sure I can look at my own code and answer the question of "what is this?" with more than a puzzled, sheepish shrug in response.

This will, of course, take some time to put together to a playable state. In the meanwhile, I will also strive to continue making smaller updates to the old source to test ideas and also just make things as entertaining for everyone waiting as I can in the meantime.

As always, everyone is welcome to join FMW's discord server, where I plan to share more information in the hopes of getting constructive feedback from anyone who cares:

A large update has been released today, after a drumroll that lasted far too long. The overall strength levels of certain enemy NPCs has been fine-tuned to provide players a better experience as soon as they create their character. A certain game-breaking bug was patched, and a number of other little problems have been solved.

The most significant set of changes involve the potential multiplayer experience. A world save file has been added to save changes affecting not just the player, but the world as a whole. And last but not least, the sect system has been created. As of now, players can found their own sects, and purchase land in Long Qi City. With a bit more money, you can also have a headquarters for your sect built in a small dimension.

The next update will focus on expanding the sect system, giving players more customization options and allowing them to band together as a proper organization. As ever, you can share your thoughts and opinions on Discord.

New update released today. A big one, too. Learn more about the game by reading books, explore brand new areas, and visit an entirely new city; Glory City. In addition, learn new martial skills, find new treasures and resources, and try new methods of training.

Perhaps most significantly, you will now be able to load and save your character.

The next update will focus on providing information. New books will help players familiarize themselves with the activities they can take part in.

As always, feedback will be appreciated and recognized.
