  1. My sig pic is my Sundancer from Shadowbane Treachery! My fire elf ideas got shot down when I posted them before in suggestions, so I am not sure how much support there is. I am still sad that Crowfall isn't going to actually be Shadowbane 2.
  2. This is the one and only Kickstarter I ever invested in. Much of that was due to the celestial conjunction of former UO and Shadowbane developers along with the estimable Raph Koster. If Crowfall succeeds, as we all hope, it could breathe fresh air into the MMO genre. No pressure ACE, really...
  3. Order? Chaos? The Cosmic Balance? “Elric knew that everything that existed had its opposite. In danger he might find peace. And yet, of course, in peace there was danger. Being an imperfect creature in an imperfect world he would always know paradox. And that was why in paradox there was always a kind of truth. That was why philosophers and soothsayers flourished. In a perfect world there would be no place for them. In an imperfect world the mysteries were always without solution and that was why there was always a great choice of solutions.” ― Michael Moorcock, The Elric Saga Part I There is so much Moorcock in Crowfall, I fear we will all revert to brooding teenagers...
  4. The purpose of an EK is to have a "safe space" to recover from defeat.
  5. Something about socializer killer makes me think serial killer instead.
  6. Now you've done it. Never, ever, say his name. He's always listening, you know. Always.
  7. Well, I was really looking forward to sbe.exe. I feel sort of numb now...
  8. I believe you can make your crafting EK the ultimate hard core full loot from hell experience. Just don't be surprised if the PVP devolves into the naked mages in death robes variety. I have a better idea. Advertise that visitors will get to see your face so that they alone may find you on the battlefield.
  9. Was that the one where Wolfpack used a catapult to launch free t-shirts to their fans?
  10. I get sniffles remembering the good old days. Shows how memory works, since honestly many of those days were spent in torment, heh.
  11. Unless you have a piece of eight from each of the Nine Pirate Lords
  12. Someone suggested I re-post this here. It is basically a question/suggestion for ACE as to whether they plan to run in-game RP events. http://community.crowfall.com/index.php?/topic/10429-ace-run-in-game-events/#entry249612 As Courant unearthed from the past ACE quote, it seems a question of funding. Sooo, I suppose the issue is whether ACE will make adding staff to run in-game events a Kickstarter goal at some point. It would of course only be after they had accomplished all the other things that should be done first.
  13. Nice catch! I will post this in suggestions and see if ACE responds.
  14. That was just an idea thrown out. I think they can be anywhere, but usually it is hard to run RP events in an open world PVP situation, heh.
  15. /agree I also wonder if only the true nerds are raging on these issues. They seem to be breaking all the ticket sales records. Many theater goers were not alive when Episode IV opened in 1977. That was a different time. They had to "sell" a new genre. Now all they have to do is push something out and count the money. Even Phantom Menace made a huge profit.
  16. I am wondering if ACE might consider running in-game events. The idea is to spice things up by adding flavor to the lore and/or setting up limited window challenges for players and guilds. The events would be run by company staff and/or trusted volunteers. They could be either in a campaign world or someone's EK. Appropriate rewards would be given, but would avoid turning into a "free stuff give-away" style event as these can generate lots of rancor ("the dev gave them only to his/her friends - waaah!"). Ideally, it would be nice fluff, e.g. unique-looking avatar vessels, crafting recipes, a statue for the EK, etc. I am thinking of how in Shadowbane at one point Wolfpack held an event where the the Dragon's prophet appeared and spoke (in Dragon form). This was an amazing amount of fun, especially for the dragon-worshipping Irekei! The Irekei got a unique statue for their city for that one. Crowfall examples might be: * Hero, the Eternal Champion, manifests at an EK and announces that on such and such a date a gladiator tourney will be held which he will judge * A herald of one of the Gods announces a treasure hunt * a mysterious keep appears at an EK which the followers of one God must hold against another during set windows of time I am not talking anything constant or that would detract from ACE's core responsibilities. I am thinking once things are up and running and time frees up. They are able to do it in other games and I think it would be lots of fun.
  17. Now that we know Crows are supernaturally possessed puppets, it opens up tremendous role-playing potential.
