Tabula Rasa Q & A: Checking In With Starr Long

Posted Fri, Jul 11, 2008 by Taea

If there’s one thing players of Richard Garriott’s Tabula Rasa have come to expect, it’s the constant improvement and additions to the world from the NCsoft team. With game development always in motion it can be difficult to keep up with all the latest Tabula Rasa news. Ten Ton Hammer grabbed a moment with the game’s Producer, Starr Long, to get the skinny on what to watch for with the ongoing development.

Ten Ton Hammer: Are there more armor sets in the works for TR players? When might we begin seeing those on the live servers?

Starr Long: Yes! We are currently doing concept work on some ideas for higher level armor which might be something like Elite and Epic armor sets. Elite armor sets might be specialized versions of Tier 3 armor that are only available to specific Tier 4 classes. As an example there could be a Sniper version of Stealth Armor that only Snipers can wear. We are also working on improvements to current armor sets including two color hueing so you can dye your armor more than one color (I like green and black).


Years have passed since the cancellation of Tabula Rasa, but some fans still want the game back.
