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!

Speaking of 2.0…
I have an extra special sneak peek at the NPC Generator for you:

Bug Fixes and New Features
Character previews should load faster
You can add a number as a searchable tag to your character, not just a word like “elf”
In your profile, there’s a section to list your proficiencies (like DMing, cartography, or character commissions). You can not search user profiles by those proficiencies.
You know we love to give you all sneak peeks of what we’re working on, how about a look at new assets for our new Kickstarter? These assets are exclusively for Kickstarter II launching March 16th, and will be available later as add-ons. Backers from our first Kickstarter who selected the “All You Survey” add on will also receive these!
This week’s new assets come from the theme “Winter Wonderland”, and we are happy to add another long hairstyle to the lineup!
We had some bug fixes go live after our email went out last week, including bugs relating layering issues. That means long hair and beards are ready to use! Now go forth and create!
Kickstarter #2 Update
We decided to delay the launch of our Kickstarter to give us a little more time to get people excited! If you haven’t already, you can follow the campaign and be notified at launch: https://bit.ly/3uvOj7A
Our new anticipated launch date is March 16th!
We also have something special planned– exclusively for backers of our first Kickstarter who also support the second campaign.
NOTE: We’re still working on the full platform (scene builder and story animator), these additional funds will help us introduce additional character options, without losing momentum on the rest of the features in development.
A Sneak Peek?
Speaking of continuing to work on new features, we are getting closer to launching our character token options! What do you think of this updated Builder layout as well??
Soon you will be able to download your characters tokens, ready to use in your online games!
Lunar New Year Exclusive Assets
Remember we still have our Lunar New Year Assets available to to those who secure a Hireling or Hero membership by March 27th! Be sure to unlock these exclusive assets by creating or upgrading your account at www.beneverending.app.

Our Devs have been hard at work testing new features and crushing bugs related to asset layering. Those updates should go live today around 3 pm EST!
We mentioned launching a second, smaller Kickstarter to fund some new body types (since people have been asking for those). We finally have more details to share!
NOTE: We’re still working on the full platform (scene builder and story animator) these additional funds will help us introduce these additional character options, without losing momentum on the rest of the features in development.
We’ve already begun work on these new body types, and are happy to share a sneak peek! How awesome are these Barbarian, Bard, Wizard and Paladin assets as well?? I can’t wait to see what else our artists come up with!
