Hello everyone, welcome back to the not-so-weekly-but-hopefully-will-become-more-weekly-update/Q&A thread (working title)! It's been a very very busy few weeks for the team and we've got lots big updates and developments for you! We have a very big announcement regarding the future of the mini-lore and when you can expect to see it, an even bigger announcement regarding the much anticipated B41 lore that we're very excited about, and some smaller things that we're all very excited to share.
The Bad News First
As many of you have been seeing through these posts, a tremendous amount of work and dedication has been doing into building the mini-lore (What Lies Beneath) into something truly special and an experience that people cannot find on another server. Custom textures, custom maps, specialized buildings of all types, and countless pages of writing and idea boards have been made to try and tie everything together in a neat little knot. Unfortunately, as we have created all those bells and whistles, it's become increasingly apparent that to get 'What Lies Beneath' to a state that we can be proud of, we will need to postpone it until further notice. This saddens us as much as it might disappoint you, but we believe this to the the best course of action in order to continue to deliver stories that make you feel. However, as every storm cloud has a silver lining, this does bring me to the good news!
The Good News Second
"The people, can we even call them that anymore? They're deformed, contorted like something out of a Lovecraft book. It's like their muscles are being hardened into bone, hard to look at.
I saw a man, a kid really, couldn't have been older than 20, fighting one of them the other day. He was backed into a corner with a shotgun, looked like he didn't want to shoot. One of those things got closer and closer, the kid looked away and pulled the trigger. A shot like that should have blown it's arm right off, but it barely tore the skin... I left after that, didn't want to hear the screams.
My wife and I, along with a few other, have been hiding out in a police station, not so sure that was a good move anymore. One of the guards is constantly on edge, with the military leaving and helicopter rescues becoming less frequent I can't blame him, but I'm not sure how much longer it'll be before he snaps and puts us all in danger."
That's right everyone, introducing 'Lines We Cross', our new fully fledged lore to coincide with the B41 Animations release of Project Zomboid! Things are still in the early stages so I don't want to give away too much as of now, but expect many more info dumps about where we are with this lore in the coming weeks. We have some very cool concepts that play hand-in-hand with the way that the game works as of the animations build which we believe will deliver a very refreshing experience to all of you. Expect early whitelist applications to go live sometime in the next week, so start thinking about them PCs and stay tuned!

Among other duties I'll also be taking over these weekly update posts, meaning that I solemnly swear that these posts will be weekly and will be posted every Friday around this time. If I ever fail to do this I will submit to a swift beheading lest I be shamed away from my post. Along with this the team is committing to a higher amount of player communication.
