“We’re overhauling the character progression user interface. And introducing a range of new Facets to define your captain’s past. Perhaps you lost your soul (and found it again). Or attended a seance. Perhaps you have a hobby. Or are close to rats, Devils, spies or Rubbery Men. Experienced captains will be able to continue to raise their stats. Even after reaching the level cap. Also extending the late game experience.”
