On-the-go is ready to go!
We've finally got the mobile CSS ready for you to try out! The last two weeks have been filled with thorough testing on the alpha server, trying to catch every bug we can find. There's only so many of us, though, so if you can find any problems we missed, please report those to the Technical Support Forum!
Users with very tiny mobile screens may find that they have few columns on some pages. My teensy iPhone 5s only gets 1 column on the Trade page, which does make Trading on my phone kind of a pain. We’re working on a way to toggle the mobile on & off so you can optionally choose when to use it and when you’d rather stick to the desktop version.
We’ve also increased the shop stock from 12 items to 15 items, and made the images full-sized. Thank you all so much for your feedback that led to this decision! We hope this makes shopping a little bit easier. Our next big task is to work on that Marketplace.
Remember to please report any problems to the Technical Support Forum. Your browser version is very helpful information if we have to troubleshoot a problem. I'd also like to ask, as a favor, if you could try to replicate a problem so that I know whether it was a strange one-time little bug or whether it is reoccurring for multiple users; this also helps me to sleuth my way to the source of the problem. The more details, the better!
Thank you all again for your help and patience as we work together on making Tattered Weave the best it can be!

Suggestions for Improvement
A little birdy told me the Suggestions Forum had some good ideas for my games… and she was right! I’ve worked my tush off to get you a new-and-improved version of each game. Here, I even made a list:
1. All three games should now work on Fullscreen mode for both desktop and mobile. The Mobile button will be deleted tomorrow, so you can just use the Fullscreen button if you’re on mobile, and tah dah! It works great!
2. All three games have had their How To updated with amended gameplay rules.
3. Hoof It now has a secret level! But I’m not gonna tell you how to find it~
4. Memory now has a Replay button so that you can keep playing your favorite level over and over. My birdy said that the last level is really hard, especially on tiny phone screens, so I made sure you can earn Shards and Kith abilities on EVERY level! It just takes a bit longer on the easier levels.
5. Memory now labels the difficulties by their type, Exact/Color/Kith, rather than Easy/Medium/Hard. That should make it much clearer for all the new players showing up on Thursday!
Wow! So many changes! I’m pretty awesome like that. And I’ve got another surprise in store for Thursday… No hints! No peeking! You’ll ruin the surprise! Read More »
New Feature: Referrals!
One week to go!
We’re so close to opening the doors for everyone to join! We’ve been hastily testing the mobile CSS layout and server/database optimizations to get ready for the big day.
In anticipation of all our new users, we’ve added a Referral feature so that you can earn rewards for any friends that sign up! You can find a referral link in your Settings page; this link will autocomplete the Referred by field on the registration page. For every new user you refer, you’ll earn 1 free Gem! And, if that user buys Gems themselves, you will automatically receive a free bonus 5% of however many Gems they purchase, every time they shop!
Some other minor updates that we’ve squeezed in last-minute: you can now Trade your Kith if you use a premium Foreign Alliance to do so. Each Foreign Alliance allows you to Trade any number of Kith one time only, and can only be used one at a time. Please be careful not to have multiple Trades ongoing with multiple Foreign Alliances, as it may cause your Alliance to fail.
Users were experiencing issues with the account expiration, so we have turned that security feature off entirely. We’ve also increased the automatic logout time from 3 hours to 1 day.
Finally, the Kith transformation notifications have changed. You’ll now see a small phrase from your Kith when they transform, based on their Personality!
As a warning, this weekend we will be deleting the Energy, Reason, and Health rewards from Hourly Quests. You’ll have to earn those through consumables again! It’s a bit tight, but we made sure that you can get to 400 in all stats - and we’ve got plenty more item updates on the way. :) Read More »
New Items: Books!
Fearsome Fiction and Winds of Change
There have been so many Kith coming through the Campus Supplies store looking for new books these past few months. It’s both heartwarming and mildly worrying for me, if the Kith are truly chewing through their books that quickly (not literally, I hope). However, Iris has given notice that the Kith have all agreed to slow down their learning curve - I’m not sure that’s a good thing, but more reading does make for a well-rounded person; or Kith in this case. Each book will be rewarding 1-3 less points of Reason starting tomorrow.
Luckily for you, I can answer the call for new books now that I have personally read each and every one to make sure they were suitable for all ages. Look at all these great fictional stories! Th-that is to say, I still quite enjoyed all the new textbooks and historical collections, but there is something so uniquely wonderful about getting lost in well-crafted fictional worlds.
To start, let me reveal the new textbooks for our upcoming round of classes. We have English Syntax, The Artistic Eye, Classical Mythology, as well as a sequel to one of our older titles, Manage your Money Wisely. We also have the very exciting new biography of our own headmaster, Our Dear Old Nick, out for everyone to read. I can say I was quite surprised about what sort of youth he used to be.
And don't think I haven’t heard all those spooky whispers you have going on about the store being haunted! You silly things, if you want a good scare then I will do my best to provide one. I have a whole set of new horror fiction for you ghost chasers. The Straw Man, In the Mouth of the Wolf, and BLEH! should scare the daylights right out of you, although that last one lands squarely in the horror-comedy genre.
Speaking of horror, I have two very special books left to mention. While they aren’t fiction, they do contain a frightening story indeed. The Tattered Weave and The Tattered Weave Collector's Edition are available to those who are interested in studying a recounting of the Cataclysm by those that had survived here in Hope.
I hope you all enjoy these new books and- oh? What is this? I have one left? Ace of the Arcade? I don't remember ordering these... Well, there is a whole box of them... I’ll put them on the shelves while I read through one. Enjoy!

Game Update: Hoof It!
Dance, Seeba, Dance!
Mwahahaha! *cough* Whoops, sorry, that’s more my brother’s style than mine. Anyway! Hoof It now has difficulty levels added to it, as well as the How To button. I’m trying out a new input method, so PLEASE report any problems to the Technical Support thread! If this works for everyone, it will mean that we can cut the games back down to one version, instead of needing a separate mobile version. If not, please stick with Easy Mode in the meantime, and I’ll swap this version out for the two separate versions.
So, ramping up the fun means that harder difficulties have more dance moves to remember! Don’t try these at home - no, I mean it, Dad! Hey! These dances are for Seeba only!! Quit it! Read More »
