(June 13 to June 19, 2022)

Welcome dear readers to the latest issue of the Weekly Gazette! Here in the Gazette, we give you the news in brief of what occurred in the past week as well as provide any news happening in Save-Point itself

Official Area
Announcements and Updates
It stands to reason that you should never feed the trolls. But this week with the Return of the September Spammer Simpletons, DerVVulfman continues to instead make them starve. He noted that roughly sixty of the five hundred spammers had returned this week, only for him to enter their accounts and change their passwords, and then their registered eMail addresses so the Lost Password function would never work for them.


Occasions
We got to celebrate at least one birthday every day of the week, starting with cosmickitty's, DoubleX's and justpassingby's birthday, followed by the birthdays for neiljwd, Vortigem and pizza-pi. layla8540 and RASHIDA12 enjoyed his cake-commemorated day. The shared birthdays of Zoom appeared, followed by JWCaisa's and whitespirits's birthday. And this Sunday, Thomas6497 enjoyed his birthday as the week ended.


General Chat
Who in the media can you trust, that may be one of the factors to consider with this week's News of the World as both the Associated Press and USA Today were called out for using erroneous or even flatly fraudulent sources. While in jail, the Epstein Madam sentenced for Child Sex Trafficking has her life threatened while an MSNBC Anchor is on video advocating taking children to Drag shows. There's all that, Columbia electing M-19 movement guerilla leader president, Texas GOP's passes a resolution over election results, Dr. Anthony Fauci admitting to sending funds to China to this day, and much more this week.


Forum Games & Nonsense
DerVVulfman found another humorous tale of table-top dungeon crawls this week, except this tale didn't involve the party itself doing the grunt work. In DUNGEON FOR RENT, the Dungeon Master never expected that the lethal dungeon he crafted for his players to assault would be a tourist attraction of sorts.



Games Development
Complete Projects
Survival horror in a science-fiction setting, that is what Esper Unleashed by Starmage entails. Made with RPGMaker MZ for the 6th Annual Driftwood Gaming GameJam, you find yourself in waking up in a medical facility as the subject of an experiment now scrambling for a way out.


Upcoming Projects
Work continues as version 3.5 of BlueSkies is now out. Nothing new regarding story content, but new animations, fixes to the player skills and buffs for balancing, and bug fixes worked out. But along with that, new battlebackgrounds and tooltips have been added



Material Development
Scripts Database
Kingly Kounters was updated this week, DerVVulfman ensuring that paralyzed victims of an attack cannot offer counter assaults. Still, kingray100 is having issues, though he was unaware that the first page had the fully updated version and may have been performing the edits that DerVVulfman instructed in his posts.

As inspired by SteelBeast6Beets in his gaming recollections, kyonides now grants you the ability to actually bribe your way out of a fight and take the KLazyWayOut. With this system, a pop-up message can now alert you to an upcoming battle, and pay your way instead.

Do your players need to keep track of their progress and give them reminders of what they had accomplished. For lengthy campaigns, KDiurnalis would certainly be handy. Originally made for RPGMaker VXAce, it now covers all three Ruby-based engines as kyonides returned time and again with updates and instructions.


Resources Database
JayRay noticed that the images and files for the Minkoff Spritesheet Half Kaiser Battlers were gone and wished they be re-uploaded. It didn't take more than 40 minutes for DerVVulfman to do so, making them mere attachments. Meanwhile, a large image of Half Kaiser characters was linked by JayRay for those interested.



Creativity Section
Music and Audio
If you feel that you've been busy toiling away at your work, you're not the only one. But are your efforts musically orientated? Certainly, that's what Eric Matyas's endeavors are was he Shares More of His Original Music and Sound FX this week, be it thunderstorm ambiance tracks, game music that the player may reflect upon, or some tunes with a little pep.



Well, that's it for this week.
