That Kingsisle person who took the screenshot of companions in their house had a future promotion of Old Scratch! (Skeletal Shaman) That means either the Kingsisle people are selfish and are hogging all the world updates for themselves or WE ARE GONNA GET A NEW WORLD UPDATE SOON YAY! With promotions YAY!
the staff person only part; will appear as hashtags if you are not staff but I can't really make it look different depending on who someone is so it will also appear as hashtags whether you are a staff person or not:
Yes I saw it too,it could be a clue to an upcoming event or an accidental release. At least we get to know Old Scratch's next promotion will be. Hmm what level he might be to become a skeletal shaman Now that's a mystery worth pondering about. If that is confirmed ( true ).
