June 1st Update

In our ongoing quest to develop, improve, and perfect our character customizer, we are continuing to roll out regular updates at the beginning of each month. We're happy to report that our June 1st update just went live, and we wanted to invite you to drop by the site and check out the newest additions.

As always, if you're experiencing any strangeness, this is likely a result of older, cached data not playing nicely with the new updates. Try clearing your cache and reloading the page (for Google Chrome, for instance, this command is crtl + shift + R). If the new character load menu does not properly show your character list, try saving a fresh character. This should re-populate the save list with your previously saved characters.

For those of you who like to see the full change logs, here is an itemized list from last month's update followed by this month's new content.
