Yeah, We're Lost Alright by UndyingNephalim
Yeah, We're Lost Alright
Made to keep my sanity intact.

I think this is the fourth time I've remodeled Ome now?
The Changing Face of Religion by UndyingNephalim
The Changing Face of Religion
Kydora: Long ago my people were not as we are now. We had an empire that spanned the chain of worlds. All was well, and war had began to fade into the past as all had what they needed. We had abandoned our faith, our religions, our God, as all was well.
Something unexpected happened though. Sports, entertainment, celebrities, idols... these things our people craved, and in time fanaticism grew around them. At first it was merely petty disputes. Which team was superior, which corporation made the best products, which novel in a series was best.
Then the violence began, and people would fight over their chosen brand, their chosen author, their chosen program. As the years went on, entire factions arose and we created war where none was needed. Our society fell apart and we destroyed ourselves over these fake idols that we propped up on pedestals, all on our own.
We thought we had abandoned the religions of the past but religion had not been destroyed. It merely changed form and our people were worse off than ever before. Now we are here in the desert under your thumb, paying for our sins.

Valash: We killed our gods. We are free.

Kydora: No, you fabricated a false one for yourself. Just as my people did before their fall.
Sigma Poster by UndyingNephalim
Sigma Poster
Elements from pretty much every favorite movie poster of mine crammed into one.
I feel that I need to put forth a mandate, in particular for those who financially back me, though it is also relevant for my followers who regularly ask me for updates.

Recently my Patreon has dropped, and there's no surprise that I've had to devote a large portion of my time to a day job to support myself. The simple truth is I cannot keep my pace with this current situation. Based on my available hours and my past progress, we are looking at almost two decades of time to finish everything there is in Hyrule: Total War. Assuming my Patreon does not improve, there's the added salt to the wound that the mod itself does not provide a continued source of support once it’s complete, because it’s technically some else’s intellectual property. Therefore, so long as my income from Patreon does not meet my living costs, I have to divert my focus to my other projects that are my IP, so I can legally make a continued living from them once they’re released to market. I have utterly and completely failed to become part of the video game industry. Every company I have worked for has gone under. Most studios simply ignore my attempts to contact them. My education and life goal is crumbling and falling apart, and now it seems like the only way I'm ever going to have a career doing what I love is to put my own game with my own name on the market, therefore that will have to be my focus.

So Here's the Rundown:
Less than $700 a month via Patreon - Sigma will be my focus, seeing as it's my only real hope of making a career designing games (instead of mods, no matter how awesome), and my only long-term hope of such a career helping me in my goal to not starve to death. I will continue to work on Hyrule: Total War whenever I have seven seconds of free time to do so, but it can’t be a priority.

$700 a month - I will make Hyrule: Total War a priority. I will most likely be able to release a level and its associated cinematics every month, with regular patches to the game.

$1,400 a month - I will be able to work on these projects full time, and I no longer have to worry about a day job getting in the way. At this point, all of you are more than welcome to hound me for updates.

If any of my Patrons find this unfair or unsatisfactory, or have any ideas, please contact me about the matter.

I sincerely apologize to all of the people who follow me solely for Hyrule: Total War. It absolutely kills me inside to think that I will never see the final ending scene rendered and in motion for the world to witness, but I am not a machine and I unfortunately have to do what I must to pay the bills. I am a single person doing the work of an entire dev team for huge and massive, massive games, and despite my best efforts, I have failed at every turn to recruit others to (reliably) work as a team. If you want to speed up the process, the only way to do so is to legitimately have the same skills I have and insane devotion to finishing these projects, or to support my Patreon and spread word of my work as far and wide as possible, preferably  to others who might be able to join my team or support my Patreon. That or I win the lottery.

To end on a more positive note, a few Patrons that did not know I existed could discover me and turn this around and make it no big deal at all, so it's possible this decline could suddenly reverse and go back to normal. However, I just cannot logically justify hoping and waiting for that to happen.

Hi, I have to say that I'm a fan of your work with Total War Hyrule Mod. Even though I don't have the game, I enjoy the artwork and videos about it. I even went to TV Tropes just to see the tropes about the mod and its content. However, it says that the Labrynna Regime's superiority in range is only an Informed Attribute, as in its only stated in lore but isn't present in the game. It says its because the faction only has 4 missile troops, with the gunners being overpriced and underpowered. If I remember correctly, at one point it says the gunners are outperformed by the slingshot troops of the kokiri who somehow have the same range. As a person who likes steampunk and such, I'm asking if your going to fix this in the future or if this is going to be too much effort at this point. Once again I like your work and I enjoy reading the wiki.

Hey there. The short answer to the question is yes, Labrynna is getting both a visual and technical overhaul. Several of the factions have undergone their's this year, and the rest will as well. The intent with Labrynna was to make them an Anti-Cavalry Bunker faction. Essentially they have a strong selection of spearmen, and they have the ability to lay down sandbags to halt cavalry charges. With cavalry slowed down and held at bay, they would use their ranged units, particularly gunners, to take down enemies stalled by spearman and sandbags from a safe distance.
