    NPC relationships

    Well, in this case the spelling mistake in unintended. Largely because I do not yet know whether I can freely discuss what I had hoped to, and thus alternative measures are unneeded, or not. *winks* ~Dune~

    NPC relationships

    Oddly enough, in a good number of the games I've seen which have interesting NPCs with strong stories behind them and interactive communication, I tended to always find at least a significant portion of the player base who complained about how the game made you waste all your time talking to...

    Solo Quests

    My major problem with FFXI? It forces you to group. You want to get together with your friends and fight monsters? Hey, you should be allowed to without penalty. But in that same vein, if I want to spend my entire play experience soloing in combat and socializing elsewhere, I shouldn't have to...

    Solo Quests

    I personally wouldn't exactly consider FFXI to be any sort of guide for planning group content. *grins* That said, while both GemStone and DragonRealms feature combat and quests that are mostly done alone, the actual social aspect still exists strongly in other ways. In fact, I'd say it's...

    Release Date Poll

    Point of note, just for clarity, it's not so much the GMs feeling that way that matters, although I admit, it's nice that most of them do seem to. The real meat of it is that the folks above them see things in a similar way. Simply put, GMs by and large don't make any calls, but they do try...

    New Ilvari Model

    Blue skinned woman from an exotic world? Clearly you've not played Mass Effect. *Groucho Marx eyebrows* ~Dune~

    Fantasy What Dreams May Come

    To be, or not to be? That is the question. Whether tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, or to take arms against a sea of troubles, and by opposing, end them? To die... to sleep... no more... and by a sleep to say we end the heart-ache and the thousand...

    New Ilvari Model

    Well that builds upon what Dianne said, and what several of the videos on HH show about character customization. You can really get very diverse faces by morphing lots of different features. It sure as heck ain't WoW with "pick one of five faces" and such. *grins* ~Dune~

    Site Update

    An excellent question! ...for the folks actually running the show. *grins* ~Dune~

    It is pitch dark. You are likely to be eatten by an NDA.

    On the topic of helping Create A Game versus Playing A Game, I think it's an interesting quandry. While I likely can't give an account my own experiences until after the game launches and I actually can compare, I think I have a fine quote here from Mark Twain. "Now when I had mastered the...

    New Ilvari Model

    I believe I can speak freely about this, since it was directly released and mentioned, so here are my thoughts. *grins* There is of course a range of facial features and morphing that can be chosen from, but I do somewhat agree that the face seems mildly unnatural. This isn't a bad thing, per...

    It is pitch dark. You are likely to be eatten by an NDA.

    I absolutely, completely, irrevocably, and utterly approve of the comport and design of the aforementioned conception of information revelations through means of clever and non-absolute status confirmation via grammatical lacking and other such purposeful textual inaccuracies and sundry...

    Boo

    Well, if nothing else we can report that a handful of folks from HerosHall have been applying to be GMs and some successfully, at that! There's still a big hush hush on everything, but there is some progress. ~Dune~

    Site Update

    Burian have always been in, they're the equivalent of dwarves. *winks* As for the graphics, I don't think any of these screenshots or videos do them justice. I do know that there are a lot of features built right into the entire system to utilize resources in a pretty amazing manner, making...

    Smash Brothers Brawl!!

    I know a few folks as would disagree, but hey. *grins* ~Dune~
