Development Update - January [Updated]

Happy New Year, Lorfolk!

We're thrilled to kick off 2024 with a slew of new updates, including the Cooking Camp and Farming Festival weekly events and details about our inaugural seasonal event, showcasing the frosty battlefield of Icerun!


Icerun Seasonal Event

A winter's chill is in the air… the Icerun Seasonal event has begun!


Lore:

Rumours speak of a darkness that has touched the most desolate border of Icerun. Elders speak out, recounting old tales from their ancestors. Chaos, the malevolent force that once haunted Loria centuries ago, has resurfaced. No creature is free from his influence, and those that are too slow to escape become possessed, or as the lorwolves call them, "The Consumed." Rally your pack and join the Icerun fight against the first chaotic whispers that threaten to shake Loria to its core. Read about Icerun’s first encounter with The Consumed here.


How the Icerun Seasonal Event works

During the entire month of January, players can earn Icerun Vouchers by completing various activities around the site. These Icerun Vouchers can be spent within the Icerun Seasonal Event Shop.

How to earn Icerun Vouchers

Releasing Wolves

During this event, Icerun Vouchers are rewarded by releasing wolves to help fend off The Consumed along Icerun Borders. Icerun players will also earn double Icerun Vouchers when releasing wolves. Go to any wolf page and click on the Tree symbol to release wolves.


Seasonal Activities

You can locate these Seasonal Activities on your Activity bar by selecting the switch button on the top right, as well as the Icerun Seasonal Page under the Play dropdown. Like daily Activities, more Seasonal Activities will appear on the taskbar after completion.


Seasonal Progress

Completing the above Icerun Seasonal Activities will award points towards your Seasonal Progress to earn rewards and additional tickets. Note: Players may have made some progress in the seasonal event before release, so some seasonal activities may appear completed.
Update 1/7/24: We've updated the number of Icerun vouchers you can earn from your Seasonal Progress. (20 > 200, 35 > 350, 50 > 500, 75 > 750, 100 > 1000)


You can also unlock a Pebble Path upgrade of your Seasonal Progress for 200,000 pebbles to unlock the Epic Icerun 2024 Seasonal Frostbitten Winter Hunter Set. Optional copies can also be bought for Icerun Vouchers. The Winter Hunter Sets will be soft-retired after the event. As of today, our plan is that soft-retired seasonal items will be placed into the Frozen Icerun Cache that will be available for Seasonal Vouchers in future years. We welcome feedback on this information.

Games

Icerun Arena: A PvE version of the site's regular Arena mini-game. Players can fight against 5 packs of The Consumed with no time limit between rounds. Stand above The Consumed and take 1st Place for 5 Seasonal Vouchers. Note: We are aware of the bug with the rewards showing the wrong typo placement rankings. This is a visual bug, however the rewards are correct.


Icerun Trials: A version of the Gauntlet mini-game where players fight consumed enemies. Reorganise your team between rounds to push yourself to the limits. This game differs from the original, however, in that beating and earning rewards for each round can only be done once per seasonal event. How far will you go this season?



New Companions have surfaced in Icerun!

The Crystalapins and Frostspinners have been spotted across Icerun. Collect these Icerun 2024 Seasonal companions available for Icerun Vouchers in the Icerun Seasonal Shop. The Crystalapins and Frostspinners will be soft-retired after the event. As of today, our plan is that soft-retired seasonal items will be placed into the Frozen Icerun Cache that will be available for Seasonal Vouchers in future years. We welcome feedback on this information.


The Consumed are available to recruit

Are your lorwolves hopeful to aid, curious researchers or perhaps… agents of Chaos? No matter their interests, some of the Consumed Companions are willing to join your pack. You can find them every year available for Icerun Vouchers in the Icerun Seasonal Shop. The question now is will you be able to resist the temptation of Chaos that they bring?


Availability:

Icerun Consumed Companions will be available every year in the Icerun Seasonal

General Consumed Companions will be available every Pack Seasonal.


Notice: Consumed Boss and retired variants of the Companions are too powerful to be recruited and will not be available for purchase.


Icerun Apparel

Grateful for your help on the Icerun border, Icerun locals have set up apparel to buy for Icerun Vouchers. Keep warm with the Winter Hunt outfit sets and take a break to celebrate winter activities with a Snowwolf and Poinsettias.


The Poinsettia Garland, Poinsettia Headpiece and Snowwoof will be available in the Icerun Seasonal every year for Icerun Vouchers.

Farming

In addition to these new foods and recipes, the Farming Festival is also getting a few updates. Cotton, Leeks, Flax, Turnips, and Potatoes can now be farmed throughout Loria! Seeds for these new crops can be found in the Farming Festival Shop or occasionally in the Mole Market.



Lormusic

In other news, Lorwolf's first official soundtrack is out now! One of JimJim's favorite hobbies is creating music, so over the past year, he and Swell have thrown together a mix of songs to help bring Lorwolf to life. The album contains 14 short songs and is available in-game and on streaming services. The music player (seen at the bottom right of the game's window) can be used to listen to the music while you play. Additional songs are planned as unlockable content in future updates, so stay tuned. Check out our album on Spotify (Opens in new window or tab)!


Discord

In our continuous goal to strengthen and keep our communications and community-building efforts consistent to Lorfolk, we are sad to say that we have some difficult news to share with everyone - on Saturday, January 6th, we will be closing the official Lorwolf Discord server to the public. This was not an easy decision to make, nor one we take lightly, as we've enjoyed watching this community grow and flourish over the years, and Discord has always been a huge part of that. However, over the past few months, the server has outgrown our modest team's ability to manage it effectively. We understand that this news may be incredibly disappointing to some, and while we are deeply sorry for any negative feelings this may cause, we believe it is in the best interest of the development of the site and for our community moving forward. We hope this gives everyone enough time to wrap up any trades and conversations they may have within the server. While the Discord is closing, more focus will be assigned on keeping communications with our community onsite clear and open. With everyone in one place, we aim to foster a stronger bond between our staff, moderators and players.


Thank you all for your feedback across discussions, suggestion threads and Support Tickets. We look forward to the future of Loria hand in hand with our community.

Good luck on the Icerun borders, Lorfolk!

1/3/24 Edit: Due to community feedback and questions, we've updated to include the availability of seasonal items.

1/7/24 Edit:
Battlepass renamed to Seasonal Progress to better reflect feature.
Premium renamed to Pebble Path to better reflect feature.
Updated to offer more clarity on Seasonal Items, more information on item availability, Frozen Icerun Cache, Seasonal Progress and Pebble Path.

Community Update: Cooking Changes And The Future
Hello Lorfolk,

Quiche here again to give our community more information on Cooking, its current state and the potential future for Profession reworks. After the bug pushed out partial test coding to the live site, our community understandably has some concerns about the future of Cooking.


Why are we looking at Stamina Changes?


The community has given us plenty of feedback on the current state of Cooking and we agree, to sum up Cooking needs a balance. Our philosophy revolves around strengthening high-rarity food. A grey-rarity cooked steak should not be more nutritious and efficient than an epic-rarity full roast meal. A chef should learn more from cooking a pumpkin pie than grilling a tuna. And a couple of complex recipes and staple ingredients should not take up an entire pot.


How does this help the Cooking profession?


When looking at the changes to food, one of the elements of Cooking we wished to strengthen was tiered cooking. An example on-site already is the relationship between Bread and Bread Feasts. More recipes should be made so all raw materials and cooked dishes have a Cooking tree path that leads to high-rarity foods.



One example scenario:


A low-level Cook can cook Flour to level up their cooking, whilst Flour is not stamina-efficient, it is used in plenty of mid-rarity foods, so a player can sell or trade Flour to mid or high-level Cooks who no longer wish to make Flour.


A mid-level Cook can cook Bread to level up their cooking, Bread is stamina-positive but is also needed in high-level Cooking to make Bread Feasts. This Cook can decide whether to use the Bread or trade to the Flea Market.


At higher levels, Cooks can create some of the best stamina-efficient food per pot in Lorwolf. Bread Feast no longer takes 5 slots to create, instead taking 3 slots per recipe. These Cooks can decide whether to sell to the market, use for themselves or trade services to further level their profession.



Why does raw and grey-tiered food need to be balanced?


Across the span of the Cooking profession, the weight of stamina and exp has been shifted from raw foods to high-tiered cooked foods instead. This has led to the stamina balancing of raw foods and the few cooked 1:1 cooked foods such as Cooked Meat. Players may feel concerned that this will restrict lower-level options for cooked sources of Stamina. Instead, we are looking to introduce more 1:1 recipes for most raw materials, such as raw Corn becoming Grilled Corn and Potatoes becoming Baked Potatoes. Further recipe expansions to these 1:1 recipes will allow them to be used in higher-rarity Cooking.



Will anything happen to food in the next update?

Yes. We plan on updating stamina for some of these foods and the raw/lesser ingredients in preparation for new recipes in the upcoming weeklies. Update: There will be no changes to Stamina in the next update as we review Player feedback.


Does this affect other Professions?

Yes. As we look to strengthen higher-tiered Cooking we wish to express our intent to integrate Professions/Activities with each other more with small updates across the site. More options may open up in other Professions, such as more mid to high-tiered crops becoming available, hunting specific food sources and so on.


We look forward to expanding and balancing Professions as we move forward and like to thank the community for being a part of our journey as Lorwolf grows! As always, your input helps us shape and improve Lorwolf every step of the way.

Patch notes have also been updated, you can find more information here!

Development Update - November

We're back! Apologies for the radio silence over the past few months, we're pleased to say that JimJim's arm has been healing well and is almost entirely recovered. Our team has been hard at work building, testing, and creating art assets for the achievement system - and we're pleased to announce that it will be launching today as soon as the scheduled maintenance has concluded!

We've also taken this time to go back and address some of the bugs and issues that have been reported. Recent code changes have been recorded in the latest Patch Notes 1.1.6.


It's finally ready; achievements have just landed in the world of Loria! Players can track their progress as they complete goals and unlock achievement-exclusive rewards through everyday, regular gameplay. Navigate to the Achievements page from the Den menu:


Achievements have been divided into four subcategories - General, Gameplay, Professions, and Den. If you have an achievement reward available to claim, it will display as a small red dot next to the tab name.


General: For completion of general gameplay tasks such as achievements completed, weekly activities completed, etc.

Starter: A category to help onboard new players to the game. Apparel items awarded in this category are not soulbound, and can also be purchased from Marvin's Mole Market.

Gameplay: Includes Arena, Campaign, Gauntlet, and Pageant tasks and awards several different exclusive apparel sets and recipes.

Professions: Covers every profession and awards weekly event vouchers.

Den: A category for miscellaneous tasks such as inventory management, wolf breeding, etc.

Completing an achievement may grant any of the following: Achievement points, Moonstones, Pebbles, Forum titles, Companions, apparel items, food, materials, and more. (As a side note, this update has almost doubled the total number of official game apparel!) Once an achievement has been claimed, it will be sent to the player via Notifications.


Achievement points and titles will display below a player's profile within the Forums. Titles can be set from the Account Settings page.


Some final notes:

Due to this being the very first iteration of Achievements, the majority of player progress made prior to this update can not be backdated. Achievements such as profession and companion level will be updated automatically by the system. Moving forward, players should expect some adjustments as we continuously work to ensure a fair and rewarding experience. We've set the rewards and requirements according to the predicted data of an average player who logs in over the course of a year, but this may change as more players engage with the feature and provide feedback. Some achievements will be met relatively quickly, while others are to be earned over paced regular gameplay. We plan to add even more achievements and rewards as the site and its features grow to ensure the average player always has something to work towards. We welcome any and all gameplay suggestions from our community to be posted in the Suggestions Forum.


New Recipe Search and Mining Ore

A new search, sort, and pager feature have been added to both the Crafting and Cooking professions. Now, players can easily search and sort through their ever-expanding list of recipes without having to scroll through the entire page.


It's time to collect all the shinies - precious gemstones can now be mined throughout the caves of Loria! Players can now rarely find Sapphire, Ruby, Amethyst, Citrine, and Emerald gems. As of now, these gems can be used to craft the exclusive Achievement daggers. We plan to release many new crafting recipes and apparel items featuring these rare gems.




New Breed Sneak Peak

Shown above are a couple sketch ideas for Lorwolf's upcoming wolf breed - Direwolves! We're aiming for this breed to be big, bulky, and powerful; with massive fangs and a short bob-tail. It will be similar to lynx cats in appearance and will have a special affinity for nature and ancient magic.


In other news, our annual Black Friday sale returns next week; more info about that will be coming soon! Thank you for sticking with us, especially when development may seem slower than usual. Our small yet passionate development team is committed to bringing the best experience to our players. We are so proud of how far we've come, and we want to thank you for your continued patience.


Moonsblessings,

Alaunis, JimJim, and Swell

Community Howl - 23rd October


Autumn is in full swing, with rain and winds picking up to give some Lorfolk all a chilly reminder that Winter is not far off. We're keeping the Community Howl light this month, announcing the Colouring Competition winners and some community media highlights. Just a reminder that the Community Howl's goal is community check-ins, celebrating the community achievements, fan media spotlights and recaps.


Colouring Competition Winning Entries

We've loved seeing just how creative our community has been and had lots of fun judging the amazing entries submitted for the Colouring Competition. It's certainly been a tough time deciding the final results.

Congratulations to our 12 Winners!

Once all entries are standardised, they will be made available in the Apparel section of the Mole Market for pebbles only.

Q. Will there be more Colouring Competitions in future?

Yes, more Colouring Competitions will be available in the future. We have received various feedback from our community that we are looking to implement with future competitions and events.


Walk With Confidence

There's been some wonderful media being made by the community, and we can't help but chuckle at this comic by @foxriddles, which shows how they imagine ignoring enemy encounters. Just keep on moving~


Vespen-Boys On The Beach

Finally, we just had to share this funny short video over on YouTube. (Warning for Flashing Lights). Level 50 fishing is no small feat! @EurasianLynx celebrates the big five-oh by taking the Vespens to the beach to some catchy jams.


Edit: 24/10/23 8pm ST Prizes and DMs given out

Community Howl - September 22nd


Welcome to the first Community Howl for Lorwolf!

The Community Howl aims to share community highlights, information and other cool things with you.

If you are okay to be featured in future Community Howls, you can tag @lorwolfofficial on Tumblr, use the designated lorwolf-media forum in the discord or tag @Quiche when sharing your Lorwolf media in the forums. Don't forget to write down how you'd like to be credited and your pronouns.

Well, with introductions out of the way, let's jump right into this Community Howl.


Community Competitions

We've taken your feedback on board and are happy to announce that we are hosting Community competitions. Our first colouring contest will be held and run for three weeks. Represent your pack by designing a standard (flag) based on one of the four packs. The winning entries will become pebble apparel available on-site. More details can be found here.



The mystery unravelled

Thank you to those who suggested our skittery friend in the Item Creator Shrine and EA. Glotus is real in the year 2023. Some sharp-eyed lorfolk discovered that the old files for the campaign talked of Glotus, Lotus’ pet gecko. Glotus’ family, the Spotted Geckos, are coming to swarm a pebble shop near you in the next Dev Update. But did you know that there is a nocturnal cousin in the land of the moon?


September Mid-Month Patch Notes

The Dev Team have been working hard to bring the September Patch Notes to the community, which was aimed for the mid-month. Unfortunately, we’ve been informed that JimJim, our lead Developer, has fractured his arm in an accident. The Lorwolf Team send their well wishes on a speedy recovery.

What does this mean for achievements? Will there be another delay?

Achievements are still coming! The already-delayed mid-month patch will be merged with the Achievement Dev Update and will be released as soon as possible. JimJim will be resting as Swell steps up to finish the vital parts remaining.

Will development stop on the achievement system once it’s launched?

It’s far from over! The Dev Team are looking forward to adding more achievements and rewards in future patches. As new features are implemented, the community completes achievement goals, community feedback and new chapter releases; more will become available to the player.

Will there be any other delays?

As we discovered, many issues or problems can appear and cause delays during development. ETAs cause a lot of disappointment all around for both the community and the Dev Team when an ETA is not met, pressuring the Team into feeling they need to crunch to meet these expectations and increase chances of burnout. As such, we will no longer be providing ETAs on long-term projects but, in turn, will provide progress updates and the following roadmap goals.


Categorising Posts

With the above in mind, after the next update, we will be categorising the following updates and posts you will see in Recent News and Patch Notes.

Dev Update - A word from the Dev Team on the progress of long-term projects. These may not always provide content, or sneak peeks but a general address to the community. (No set schedule to post)
Patch Note - For bugs, maintenance and balancing updates. Content will not be provided with these. (No set schedule to post)
Content Update - Here completed long-term projects are posted and the next long-term goal is set. Examples: Achievements, Vault, new professions, events, revamps and campaign chapters. (No set schedule to post)
Community Howl - Community check-ins, fan media spotlights and recaps. (These will start monthly as we estimate the workload needed to provide these)
Profession Weekly - Little reminders of the profession activity of the week. Small content updates for already-established features on-site are detached from the long-term projects/patch notes and will be added to these mini-updates if available. This is to meet the needs and suggestions of our community and to avoid large dry spells such as August - September again with small content updates becoming frequent. (Posts are weekly, small content has no set schedule)


A Little Chilly

The Mod Trainees are having fun this week with Trainee Sheera regaling us with their lore and shiny new flag standard for their pack.

Looking forward to getting cosy this Autumn with our community. We want to thank everyone for your patience and understanding.

Moonsblessings,

Quiche

September News

Hey everyone, Alaunis here bringing some September news. Our team has been working hard preparing for the September Dev Update and 1.1.6 Patch Notes. We are extremely excited to share these updates with you as soon as they are ready. Here's what we've been working on over the past month:


Art Team

Our new artists have been settling into the team well and have been working on the following:

  • New pebble apparel and companions
  • Darkspine Event apparel
  • Achievement assets

Code Team

  • Site-wide bug fixes
  • Achievement rebalancing, testing and bug fixes
  • Darkspine event framework building

Support Team

  • Custom Apparel Training has been completed. We are monitoring the current CA queue to ensure it is running smoothly.
  • Mod Trainees will soon be coming up to the end of their training over the next month. We will be welcoming some new faces to the team soon.

We will be releasing patch notes 1.1.6 around the middle of September, which will include numerous site-wide fixes and updates. These will include some long-awaited bug squishing and improvements to our mobile player experience. Additionally, we plan on having an hour or two of downtime shortly before the Achievement system releases - during which time the site will be unavailable. We will be sure to share further information about this as we get closer to the release date (TBD). I want to thank you for your continued patience as we focus our efforts on these updates. For now, here's a tiny glimpse of what's to come this September:



Development Update - July

We hope everyone has been enjoying their summer so far. We're excited to bring you some new updates for the month of July! To start off, the achievement system's launch date has been set for Saturday, August 6th. After a few more weeks of testing and balancing, we look forward to unveiling this highly anticipated feature. To see a full list of everything that was updated recently, check out the Patch Notes.

What's new?

  • Poll Results & Roadmap Update
  • Refer-A-Friend Feature
  • Puppy/Bloodline Predictor

New Profession Poll Results & Roadmap Update

Points have been tallied, Archaeology won the poll with an impressive 52% of votes! Players will be able to embark on a treasure hunt using the archaeology profession to unearth ancient artifacts and hidden rewards. As shown in the updated roadmap below, production is set to start the beginning of October:


Additionally, coding work on the inventory vault mechanic will begin in December. Based on player feedback, we have decided to implement a vault feature independent from the banking profession. This vault will allow players to set aside precious items, providing a secure space within their den to store and safeguard their treasures.

The roadmap has been adjusted according to our ever-evolving development goals. Now that the Puppy Predictor and Forums revamp have been completed, the code team has adjusted their plans to include the new Archaeology profession and Inventory Vault projects. The Mole Market Revamp project has been extended to last through the month of August.

As a reminder, we still plan on implementing the other two professions in the poll (Banking and Ranger), but at a later stage.

Refer-A-Friend Feature

We're very excited to unveil Lorwolf's brand new Refer-A-Friend feature - simply invite your friends to play Lorwolf and earn rewards!


How it works:

As of today, new users can add a referrer when registering for an account. Simply send your unique referral link to a friend and receive 100 Moonwater once they have created an account. Then, once your friend has achieved a total Companion level of 50 or higher, you can claim 1 Refer-A-Friend Companion. Please note that players cannot make referrals retroactively, i.e., those that have already registered for an account cannot add a referrer. The Refer-A-Friend section can be found on the Profile page.

Rewards:

Referrals automatically grant 100 Moonwater to both the referrer and the referee. To receive an Orthrus Companion, the referred player must achieve a total Companion level of 50 or above. After this requirement has been met, both players can claim one Refer-A-Friend Companion of their choice - the Wildtail, Eclipsed, or Rustfluff Orthrus. The Glintfire and Starlume versions may be claimed once the player has referred at least three people. All versions are soulbound and limited to 1 of each per account.

Puppy/Bloodline Predictor

We're thrilled to share that our Wolf Demo has been given an exciting upgrade! In this enhanced version, players now have the ability to create new wolves, store their unique designs, and predict puppy genetics, including full color ranges.

How it works:

Save any of your Wolf Demo designs by clicking the green "Save Current" button. Saved designs can easily be re-loaded into the demo, or used in the Puppy Predictor. The Puppy Predictor allows players to input one male and one female wolf design to check for inbreeding and generate the pair's potential offspring including the color ranges and their genetic traits.

Speaking of puppies, the code team has enabled the use of specialty items on puppies due to popular demand. Puppies will now display on the wolf selection modal when selecting a specialty item to use.

We hope you have a blast using the new demo, and we invite you to share your designs with us and the community on social media by tagging @Lorwolf!

Development Roadmap

Curious what the staff working on? We’ve created this handy roadmap to give Lorfolk more insight into our development projects and schedules. More details about each of these projects and the upcoming achievement system have been outlined in this post.

Hi there! Introducing your Community Manager

Hey Lorfolk!

I'm Quiche, and I've officially taken the step up to being the Community Manager for Lorwolf. You might have seen me around the forums or discord bustling from one thread or question to another, helping out where I can.

As a massive advocate for putting the players first, I will absolutely do my best to assist in making sure you feel your voices are being heard.

My first step to achieving this goal is outlining some of the CM duties that I have:

There are still plenty of other duties to perform, but over the next few months the Dev Team and myself hope to bring you more community feature improvements. Between the Dev Team's commitment and drive, and the passion of you lovely lorfolk, I feel confident that together we can bring the world of Loria to an even brighter tomorrow.


Oh, and you might have noticed a couple tweaks today. The Dev Team have pushed out a few live changes.

Bug fixes:

  • Added commas to all item quantities
  • Fixed bug that was auto-feeding non-food items
  • Added confirmation button to hiring Tiny and Bigs
  • Fixed bug that was causing lost fishing trips

Support Team:

  • CA Team can now change tags and fix minor punctuation errors without a rework being sent back.
  • CA Team training is underway to get the queue running as smooth as possible.
  • There's a new support thread for Custom Apparel called Will It Approve? for checking whether your item will have any issues when submitting before you get to the completed stage of your works.

A heads up that there may be more live changes over the next week on the lead-up to the June Developmental Announcement where all these changes will be consolidated.


With that aside, I would just like to thank everyone for your kindness, understanding and patience. I'm looking forward to supporting both Lorfolk and the Dev Team.

Moonsblessings,

Quiche
