Christmas in July!
Let your friends know that now is the time to sign up for a free account at www.BeNeverEnding.app because during the month of July we’re making ALL of our premium assets FREE to everyone!
You may have already seen our tease on Social Media, but for the month of July, all premium assets will be free! If you haven’t upgraded your membership, this will be your chance to take those assets for a test drive! Don’t worry, we’ll remind you again in July 🙂
Next week we have a big update going live! We will have the full list for you then, but be prepared for some AWESOME new asset types!
Commercial Licensing with NeverEnding
We have a lot of fans who are streamers and aspiring content creators, so we’ve made it easier for you to use characters you create in NeverEnding in your Twitch streams AND in your publications on DMsGuild and DriveThruRPG.
This week we have some different types of assets to share with all of you, including some tokens to show off your Pride all year long!
Today we have an update going live for:
Matching parts in the NPC Generator (Ears, Boots, Gloves, Shoulders)
Default hands matching with arms
Categorization of beast heads (i.e. Bird head)
Occasional app crashes when randomizing characters

Speaking of GameFound…

This week we bring you another round of new assets. Head on over to www.beneverending.app and try them out!
Our devs have been hard at work crushing bugs:
Improvements in NPC and bio input areas
No more hard refreshes needed to see the newest updates!

Don’t forget to share your creations using #OCbyNE!
Some things worth mentioning again:
When you go to sign on you’ll see we call out that the app works best on Chrome. Really it works well on everything except Safari (darn you Safari *shakes fist*) We’re tackling that issue over the next couple of weeks.
Once you’re logged in, you’ll see the sidebar menu is all icons. Find the little goblin in the upper left-hand corner if you want to see what each of those icons is for.
Head over to the Character Builder, and you’ll likely note the layout is much more user-friendly, with an easy left to right flow. The sub icons are better placed, and it’s way easier to tell what customization option you’re on. There are also MORE customization options! Some new options have only 2 or 3 choices, but we’ll continue to add new options every week.
If you’re not seeing a screen like the above, try clearing your browser cache and then do a hard refresh. If you’re on Windows, press CTRL+F5. If you’re on Mac, Press CMND+SHIFT+R.
Because our developers and artists worked SO hard to get this out, we gave them extra time off. We won’t be smashing bugs from Friday, May 21 through Monday, May 24. But our dev and art teams will be back at it on Tuesday, May 25!
After that well-deserved break, out developers are back at it and working hard to fix bugs in the app. They are currently testing a fix for the ears in the NPC builder, and we will let you know when it is live. If you encounter any bugs please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org!
If you check out the ‘Stage’ tab in the Character Builder, you’ll find a slew of new token frames! Download your character tokens and use them in platforms like Roll20!
As we mentioned last week, we do not have any new assets this week to allow our Artists and Devs time to focus on the 2.0 launch. HOWEVER, that does not mean we don’t have some awesome updates for you!
Thanks to our Kickstarter Backers we are now at THREE THOUSAND users in the Character Builder. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, we couldn’t do it without every single one of you!
If you missed our Kickstarter or still don’t have a NeverEnding subscription, we are still taking late pledges on our GameFound! Check it out for some great deals and exclusive offers.
Coming very soon, we will be opening up our swag store at www.BeNeverEnding.com! There you’ll be able to purchase all kinds of TTRPG and NeverEnding goodies! Like these for example:
If you’re wondering: “What is this NeverEnding 2.0 thing they keep talking about?”, let me let you in on the exciting news!
Coming this month, we are launching NeverEnding 2.0! This launch will include:

This week we have even more awesome hairstyles for you to chose from! Head on over to www.BeNeverEnding.app to create more cool characters, and share them using hashtag #OCbyNE so we can share them too!
If you’ve been following our email updates and social media, you already know that we are hard at work bringing NeverEnding 2.0 to life. This will be our last asset drop until 2.0 goes live, to allow our amazing artists and devs to focus on the task at hand!
Speaking of 2.0…
I have an extra special sneak peek at the NPC Generator for you:

As soon as that is up, we’ll be importing backer emails into the app. You’ll receive a special sign on link to link your account. If you’re one of the backers who also backed the first Kickstarter, you’ll be receiving a separate survey where you can detail how you want your credit to be applied.
