We go out looking for sand, gravel and clay to build a smeltery and finally make some metal.
 
We're taking a break from the hack-and-slash Aurora Novum adventure to update to Minecraft 1.7; in the meantime, we're taking a crack at the Hardcore Quest Map pack Blightfall, where we'll be tasked with surviving on a hostile alien world and attempting to establish a human colony.

We sample some stones, bake some bread, and take a few steps outside the safety of the dome into the hostile world around us.

On this alien world, everything is different-- the tools are different, growing food is different-- even the cobblestone is different!

We go to check out the murder victim's grave only to find a beastly game of bait-and-switch, as well as a beastly game of rock-paper-scissors.
 

We get a special delivery order of Monster Jerky and find out that none of the "inferior" tools we know how to make will work on this alien world.

We try to get back on track with the murder investigation, but keep getting interrupted by medieval multi-level marketers and mischevious imps.

Fans of Larian Studios' games will already know that last week they announced a new Enhanced Edition of their latest RPG, Divinity: Original Sin. Blackstar and Narcogen talk about what that means for this Let's Play series.
 
You can find the full announcement over at their site:
 
http://www.larian.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=566153
 
Basically the new version has revamped quests, a different ending, full voice acting, and is being ported to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Linux, as well as Windows and Mac OS X, and the new version will be free to all current owners of the game.
 
The console version will even have split screen play.
 
The downside is possible saved game incompatibility, meaning we'll be putting our playthrough on hold until this new version comes out. More details as we learn them!
 
UPDATE: The free version is basically a sidegrade to the one you already own-- so if you own the game on Mac OS X, that version is free; ditto for Windows.
We clear out the straggling Walkers still in the castle and prepare to take our next adventure-- entering the Twilight Forest!
 
This brings to a close the first season of Aurora Novum. The series will be taking a break while we upgrade the world to Minecraft 1.7, either with a new version of this modpack or perhaps with another pack with even more mods. In the meantime, a new series will start next week!
