Lord British Gets Less Girly

Posted Thu, Nov 03, 2005 by Boomjack

Lord British takes the purse away from Tabula Rasa.
MMORPG.com has posted a Tabula Rasa preview featuring insight from Richard "Lord British" Garriott.

" Originally announced some time ago, the game underwent a marked shift just before E3 2005. Richard explained how it began with a rather trivial observation: everyone on the development team exclusively played female characters.
Why was this? Well, they discovered that as the game’s extremely far-fetched high fantasy style evolved, it became harder for male gamers to connect with their male avatars. Thus began a period where they tried to put a little more grit into the game; a process that would eventually completely redefine its setting."
