As wise as the Old Words are, one must ask: is it truly so? When our mortal eyes look to this ominous ‘great void’, what do we see if not the countless billions of stars that burn bright in the dark? What do we truly perceive, if it is not those great balls of gas and fusion, which bring life and warmth to all corners of the galaxy? And so one must ask: what are these bright hopes and burning passions in our hearts, if not a reflection of the universe itself?
Do not despair, Brothers and Sisters, for as cruel and heartless as the universe may seem at times, we are still the light amidst the darkness. Like the hydrogen giants that burn in the void, the fires of existence fuel us all! Remember now and always: once set alight, our will is as undeniable as the Loving Stars themselves, and ours is a dream which shall never die!”
Now let us go forth, Brothers and Sisters, glowing bright in this time of darkens and doubt! Let us go forth, together, and sow the seeds of the Garden of Plenty! For a better future! For all eternity! For all mankind!”

Reflecting the player character (Vine) embracing belief in humanity’s greatness, the Edenite archetype is a hopeful outlook on life and the world of Scaffold 22. No feat is too impossible, no problem insurmountable, just so long as one is firm in conviction and unwavering in belief that the human race will conquer all obstacles – together, as a species.

“Eden. Loving Stars. Whoever the fuck is listening…”
– Vine, upon first praying at the Chapel
The Edenite, by virtue of their budding belief, tends to look favorably upon the Church of Eden and will often frequent places of prayer. They are however not bound by this conviction and can interact with and support any faction they are on friendly terms with, provided that faction is not opposed to theological concepts.

A cesspit of Impurity
After all, they have finally found that purpose they once lacked, and what greater cause could there be in a mortal’s life than contributing to the Garden of Plenty so that future generations might prosper in the eternal light of the Loving Stars?

Conventionally, a new release would be announced with a dedicated news post. But let’s be frank here: Beta 0.6 is more of the same, just better. Major bugs have been fixed, gameplay concepts refined, and new features added where appropriate. It’s a big step forwards and we’re getting close to where we want to be, no doubt about it.
Thing is, there’s only so much you can say about what’s been fixed in the latest release before it gets boring and repetitive. So, until we have a list of features worth talking about in greater detail, we’ll tack release announcements on the end of content presentations. That way there’s always something interesting to read here and you still know when updates are released.
Anyways, if you’re intrigued, why not give Scaffold 22 a try?
