    This Wednesday, Oct. 31st, Heavy Water releases a big update to their Avalon Keep! First part of the update is the free Crystal Hunter game. This game is open to owners and their guests. Collect the crystals that have started to materialize around the islands and turn them into Barlow for items. There are community goals as well: fill up each house coffer, or the Avalon Kingdom coffer, to unlock a full-sized guard companion styled after each house, or the kingdom, for anyone who enters the Keep once the goal is reached!

    The second part of the update is a new area of the Keep, the Dungeon! The exterminators have supposedly taken care of the pest problem and now you can access your dungeon. The Dungeon is still part of the same personal estate so still no transitions between scenes in this massive space. The dungeon has *two* different forms: Spooky and Mystical. Each version has it's own interactive feature in the center of the dungeon. Which will you prefer?

    The Dungeon features:

    - Whole dungeon area

    - Two dungeon styles: spooky and mystical

    - Adds multiple items to the Crystal Hunter game that you can buy

    - Interactive Spooky Dungeon Feature: Feed the Monster [earns three rewards]

    - Demon babies behind bars... what are they doing there? Can you rescue them? [TBA]

    - Hanging cages with skeletons

    - Interactive Mystical Dungeon Feature: Dynamic waterfall to fire pit

    - House banners propagate to this dungeon style

    And finally, check out the new Noble Wear.......

    Thanks Heavy!

    I already own this and Im happy it will get an update. I just hope the crystals stay in the apt once you finish the game somehow. They remind me of the old old Jim Hensen movie, The Dark Crystal!

    Avalon Keep did need an update. It looks like they reallly put a lot of effort into it. Excited to see the final results.

    Just thought of something that I didn't see mentioned. Is this dungeon addition something that you will have to purchase if you already own the original space?

    Its DLC you have to buy, but its not its own space it unlocks an area from within the tower and you will load into it much like you do going into the tower.

    If it's a DLC, is there a cost to it yet?

    Oh cool! the crystal bits are pretty. I'm hoping that you will add a version of the crystal headsets that fits the headphone slot. I think most people will find that more convenient to use if you do.
