Let's talk updates

You know the old saying when it rains it pours? Well here in Seattle we just call it Thursday, and at Monocle Society that's just putting it lightly. We’ve got a big update for you, so let's dive in. So about Weave 2018.2 More than just development, what we're doing with Weave is one of the biggest undertakings I've ever experienced. We wanted this one to be right, and after looking at the overlapping feature set from 2018.2 and 2018.3 (Playset Creator, Weave Advanced), it became apparent that there's no way to do either update right if we separate them.

Hello from Seattle!

Welcome to our updated site! We've been working hard on getting Monocle Society ready for 2018, and we can't wait to show you everything that's been going on behind the scenes. It's shaping up to be a fantastic year for storytelling, donuts, and some other fun surprises. For starters let's talk about our new storefront. We received a fantastic response from the tabletop community with Weave: Storytelling Redefined. It became clear shortly after launch, however, that we needed to scale up on our shipping and presence online. We also heard from our fans that they also wanted sweet merchandise and accessories for Weave, so we're doing just that. On our products page, we added some shirts, phone cases, and most importantly of all,...
