Interview with Game Director Craig 'Silirrion' Morrison

Updated Wed, Nov 12, 2008 by Martuk

Massively.com recently got the chance to speak with Age of Conan Hyborian Adventures Game Director, Craig 'Silirrion' Morrison. The Interview covers some of the recent changes from the latest update and some of the many challenges Craig 'Silirrion' Morrison faced when taking over the roll of Game Director.

Craig: The game update that went live recently was very large. There were quite a few areas of new content, new systems added on, improvements to existing ones. It was probably the largest game update we've done since the game launched. The main new feature was the PvP Consequences system. It adds a layer of new mechanics to the PvP system; basically player actions start to have an effect on how NPCs perceive them in the gameworld. Eventually if they take enough actions that they're deemed a murderer, they'll have to resort to using other NPC encampments. These 'outlaw camps' require murderers to pay for services they might get for free in the more civilized parts of Hyboria.
