:( What, no new developer comic? Awww!!

Oh, and don't forget - be sure to join the Golden Deer Pub Forums!!

Getting some actual content up!

Author: Maxine MagicFox, March 30, 2008

*Wipes away the sweat from her eyes* Okay! So, I went to work getting some things done up already. I finished up the Floor 5 map. Which means maybe I can get some stuff started and completed for Stratum 1 material. Or I might just hold off.

I DID start on EO's "The Deluxe Item Compendium". Why deluxe? 'Cause I didn't just copy the silly Item Compendium from off of the game *rolls eyes*. You can find information on what monsters drop the item (and in some cases what move to use), the item point floor that you can get it from, how many you need to open up something in the shops, and for what quests you need to gather it. You know, the things you would like to know for an item when you are looking it up (plus some).

If you notice any errors, please e-mail me and correct me. It isn't complete yet, though. Only the first stratum stuff and a few second stratum.

I also updated the introduction page for EO2.

Apart from the videos that I still have to finish up the page for, that is all I will take from the official site.

Max's Impressions
Dear God I'm so excited! The new game is coming! It's coming! I knew it would. Ugg, June 17th, though? That's so far away *pouts*. My birthday is June 2nd, too. It comes too late for me to ask for it from friends or family. Tch. Oh well, it will still be a very nice birthday present, haha.

Remember to keep checking us for new media as it gets added to the official website. I will also get around to updating the Game Page ASAP with the new information. *Dances around*

Also, to our forums I have added avatars to the gallery for all the characters from both games. I will be making a page with them all up so you can download them and use them freely where ever you want.

Image Gallery design now complete

Author: Maxine MagicFox, March 26, 2008

Thanks to all the hard work by Archaic, we now have a working and appropriately designed Coppermine gallery! We have turned off the default themes list. If you are already registered and are not seeing the new theme, please click on this link: http://intothelabyrinth.net/gallery/themes/itl/ . If this still does not work, please contact us either through e-mail or via forums.

Key element of the gallery (and the gallery when it's done), you do not need to be on the main site in order to see if there is any important game news (so... should the game's license get announced, you will know no matter where you are on the site).

Next: Our forums design! Woohoo!!

Launch day voted a success!

Author: Maxine MagicFox, March 25, 2008

So, the launch day "could" have been better, but things went decently smooth. I went ahead and opened registration for everyone and made a few temporary boards.

You may notice that if you view the Media Spot and click on the drop down theme menu you will see a theme labeled "itl". Please refrain from clicking it. However, if you do, you will get a preview of what the design for the gallery will look like. It is INCOMPLETE! It doesn't work and things are, noticeably, wrong. It will come together in time.

Well, I'm off to bed. Good night, everyone, and thank you so much for your participation and I hope to look forward to a brilliant future for everyone!

Max's Intro to Into the Labyrinth

Author: Maxine MagicFox, March 23, 2008

Here we go! Welcome to Into the Labyrinth, the newest (and, currently, only) fansite for the game series Etrian Odyssey.

At the moment, unfortunately, I'm afraid to admit that we aren't all with it. Because Archaic, our site technician, has been busy, we haven't gotten the layouts for the gallery and forums all set up. This, unfortunately, means that the forums are turned off. The gallery is viewable with default designs. The Network is not taking new user registrations at this time. Many apologies! We will have things up ASAP!

More importantly, though, due to a LOT LOT of hard problems that thwarted all our efforts. We do not have a working Fan Fiction ItL database as we were hoping to have. Considering this, we have decided to go with the idea of having you post up fan fictions in the forums. If we develope enough of a demand for it, we will create a fan fiction database that will, unfortunately, be seperate from the main sign in. Any thoughts on this will be appreciated.

Those issues aside, we decided to open up with a special feature that I was going to push back for later. As a sort of apology, be sure to check out one of our top features It's Mp3 Soundtrack Player.

Our strategy guides are currently in developement. Since almost ALL of them are going to rely on maps, you will have to wait until I am done with all of them. You can view my map status in the EO links to the left and on its main page. While there will not be anything marked or listed, they can still be very helpful, no doubt.

New videos added to the video viewer

Author: Maxine MagicFox, March 21, 2008

Video #4 - #7 has been added to the viewer over at the left bar. Until the Trailers and Videos page has been added this is the only way to view them at the moment. Please bare with me as I struggle to create these pages ASAP.

Video #4 is only a web preview that has been added on Atlusnet's own video viewer. Videos #5, 6, and 7 are all posted on the same site but are marked as airing television commercials.

Remember, these videos are not loaded onto the ItL server, so loading times may be completely different.

Etrian Odyssey 2 Comics Added to Gallery

Author: Maxine MagicFox, March 4, 2008

All nine comics Sekaiju no Meikyuu 2 Developer Comics have been added to the Image Gallery. Like the first game's, these were penned by character artist Yuji Himukai. They are, as of yet, untranslated, and we are interested in anyone stepping forward with some sort of translation.
