The Cartographer Update

The fifth update for In Extremis’ current format is all about maps! With 19 articles, music, and more, this update will map out new content for In Extremis going forward. This update consisted of an update on March 28th, 2019, and augmented with a small series of content every six days until May 3rd. The Cartographer is so far the largest update to In Extremis!

Maps


Boasting a new redesign, the Maps article now highlights the different kinds of maps across In Extremis, complete with plenty of new illustrations to help you navigate The Known Universe!

Local Groups


Check back every six (6) days for a new group of articles about each section of Omneutta’s Local Groups. Each will have new artwork, articles, and music from the previously released Species EPs. These will run until Friday, May 3rd, all at 10am CDT. Along with new articles for each local group, the main page for each section of Omneutta will be updated as well, starting first with Divine Forge and The Outcropping

Cartographer’s Workshop


Check out a new YouTube single with the moving MIDItrail graphics, similar to the second version of Niuavi! This theme is constructed from many different themes already released, and navigates its way through a few Species’ musical territory. Hop on over to the Media page to snag the new desktop.

Vanpog


The first of many, check out a brand new article on the capitol of Pale Shores, Vanpog. Never a cultural center, Vanpog became a shipping and trading center not long after it became the designated home of the Avotoc’s O.L.A.H. Council memeber.

The Index


While not released, a new version of The Index exists. This new version (2.1.5) is halfway to 2.2 (hence the .5). What is halfway? Well, there’s not much new content in The Index–there’s a new section called Activities (all information previously available in 1.0), but the bulk of the change is some reorganization of page structures, and a lot of legibility improvements. Don’t worry, you’ll see 2.2 soon!

Other Update Notes


New Content:

  • Partially new, partially old content: several articles were updated with refined or entirely new maps: Davo, Zisdhalilci, Ohr, Hunziy (of Ohr), and Alekodst. These maps also have vegetation, and in the case of Hunziy, lava!
    • All location articles have also been updated/refined with consistent climate and geographic descriptions, which can be seen on the refined maps page
