Gloomveil Updates
1:59 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

Site author Tony Walsh has updated his unique multimedia site Gloomveil with more content, features and Flash animations, as well as a redesign of the interface. This site functions as a sort of virtual tavern for fans of both pen-and-paper and computer-based RPGs of all sorts, a place where they can swap stories, delve into mythologies and share what they have learned. Here is Tony's announcement:

Gloomveil is an original work of online interactive fantasy- an eerie
world enshrouded in a thick, magical Fog. Launched in February 2000,
Gloomveil.com offers intrigue and adventure for players of any "pen-and-
paper" or computer-based fantasy game. "A visual as well as textual
feast, this site truly captures the meaning and execution of
'multimedia,'" says Inside Mac Games


Gloomveil.com has grown significantly since its inception, and now sports
a completely redesigned textual and graphical navigation system. The
Gloomveil world continues to expand with the unveiling of "Rust Dragon's
Lair," the encampment of a fearsome warlord. Mac Central says "Gloomveil
is quite a remarkable feat that continues to improve with each passing
week. Role-playing game fans, fans of Baldur's Gate (Bioware's previous
RPG effort) and others are encouraged to check the site out."
Beyond the Web-based Gloomveil experience, "Extensions" to the Gloomveil
world are being planned for cross-platform games such as Neverwinter
Nights, Rune, MythII:Soulblighter, and for print publication as a stand-
alone work of illustrated fiction.

Tony has a remarkable skill for design, so be sure and pay this site a visit. He also mentions as part of this release that the site is constructed entirely on a Macintosh, and the site is dedicated to games that are cross-platform for Mac and PC.
