Skin Updates

Deep Sea Nami's textures have been tweaked, most notably on her arms and face!


  • A weird "Ward Celebration" string was added, not sure what this is for... 
"The Distinguished Order of Ward Longevity and Health  
Perhaps this ward has been protected. Perhaps it has merely sat in a disused lane. 
Whatever the case, it has persisted for eons in ward years and joins an ancient regal order of Wards that have lasted a really really really long time.
