  • Deodatus is back at it again. Where has he been all this time? What's going on? Read here to find out.

    Regardless of the obvious lack of Captain Crunch around here, I have just finished the last pieces of my project today and sent it off to be integrated into a larger piece of the pie – so to speak. That said, I am happy to tell you that even though I’ve not been able to get you the second part of Stieg’s interview – I swear it is coming, Stieg just has been busy or gone, or I’ve been out – I can tell you that this week we will be re-launching the website with tons of information and we will be announcing our publisher.

    Holy Caesar salad, that means things are on track! Speaking of on track, Alpha 2 officially ends next week, so I’ll continue to keep you posted on that. We have made enormous strides in stability, overall graphical sexiness, gameplay, and game mechanics. I think you can all agree that the earlier screenshots you saw pale in comparison to the shots we’ve been posting lately. Not only that, but you’ll be able to see a lot of neat things coming up next week when much more is made public! ;)

    WOooOooOOOOoo! Perpetual is quickly becoming my favorite developer. They're got great sense of humor and they're putting out two games that I get googely eyed over.

  • New contest for Chronicles of Spellborn available

    We've got a new contest today for all you aspiring photo editors! The first of a series of editing contests, this one deals with our beloved modeller and artist: Pestibug. We've got three high resolution pictures available:

    The rules are simple:

    1. You must use one of these three photos as a base.
    2. We accept one entry per user.
    3. The content of all photos must be related to TCoS.
    4. All entries have to be in before March 6 (next Monday) at noon GMT
    5. The final version must be no larger than 250k. (NOTE: We provide you the hi res versions to work with, but we want smaller versions in return.)
    6. No photo containing "inappropriate" content will be chosen as a winner. (We leave it to you to figure out what that means, but if we can't display the picture, we won't choose you.
    7. Only photos sent to webmaster@tcos.com with "Picture Contest" as subject and NOT displayed elsewhere will be considered. (Do not post your entries on the forums or link them to others until after the contest winner has been announced.)

    All of the photos will be judged by assorted developers. The favorite photo will be announced as our first winner, and the prize they receive will include: a TCoS t-shirt, their photo added to the permanent gallery, and they get to pick their "top 3" developers (one of which will be chosen by us) to be the subject of the next editing contest!

  • At every turn it seems like I reveal a little more of my geekiness without being able to stop myself. Anyone who knows me knows that I love DC Comics. Favorite GNs Are Kingdom Come and The Dark Knight Returns. I have other favorites. I'm really stoked that Hal Jordan was brought back etc. etc. and yes.. I LOVE Aquaman. Snicker at me as you will but that won't change my fandom of the man in green tights. He's multi-dimensional.

    So, the giants are battling it out. Microsoft has the Marvel rights and SOE now has the DC rights. Sure Marvel is much more popular right now because they've been able to control the quality of their movies as well as a new depth with their books. DC on the other hand has had a really bad bad wrap. With WB owning DC, they haven't had the same choices concerning their properties. All we have to do is look at the last Clooney Batman movie to see that my favorite heroes are in serious trouble.

    I was worried when I heard that Sony was taking on the project. Very, very worried. However, all may not be lost! 1Up is reporting that Jim Lee is joining the crew.

    Of his new role as Executive Creative Director on the title, Lee said in a phone interview, "I'm guiding the ship to make sure the game feels like the DC universe. I'll be intimately involved for the next several years."

    Jim is also a MMO fan. If done correctly, this could be one monster of a game. I'm excited and yet terrified. It's like watching a train wreck. You just can't look away.

  • Thank God! Finally! Someone thought to do this the right way. You would not believe how many times I've had to wait to get my pre-order because I was idiotic enough to buy it online instead of going into a store to get it.

    We have extended preorder access to Dungeons & Dragons Online™: Stormreach™ (DDO) through March 5th in order to help address the concerns of players who have told us they may not be able to get a copy of the retail box for DDO right away. Players who have created an account using their preorder bonus key will continue to have access to DDO through Sunday, March 5th. We expect most retail stores to have DDO boxes available on or before this time.

    Starting on Monday, March 6th, players will need to redeem a retail key at https://billing.turbine.com in order to continue playing. Players who are unable to obtain a retail key before March 6th won’t lose their account information or characters and will be able to play those characters once they enter a retail key.

    As a reminder, the opportunity to earn the Head Start Event founders helmet and founder status ends at 8:00am EST on February 28th. So be sure to log in and get your guilds set up!

    It's no longer a race to see who gets in first, etc, etc.

  • Looks like a little mini dev journal here. What it is though is a list of what the current priorities are for the Dark and Light dev team.

    Current development priorities:

    Craft :

    # The lists of ingredients for recipes are being finalized,
    # Workshops are being built in every kingdom.
    The land:

    # Balancing of the zoning in Ganareth in order to organize the domains into a leveled hierarchy.
    # Creation of three key maps to make living in Ganareth easier:
    # a player density map that will allow you to locate the populated zones easily,
    # a political map of kingdoms, duchies, counties and baronies to allow people to identify the alignment of every domain,
    # a map of the mana towers’ influences, for a better knowledge of the zones of influence of every tower.
    Placement of new cities in the kingdoms opened in Dark and Light (the Dark and the Light kingdoms, amongst others).

    Get the rest here.
