  • The interrogation continues. has posted a copy of content already available on the official Saga of Ryzom site. Let's call it their Ryzom Ring (R2) - Developer Diary #3. Jerry Seinfeld screamed plagiarism, then screamed it again because it's a funny sounding word. When he calmed down he said this:

    "In this article, we are going to leave the description of R² tools to one side (for a while) and more generally focus on the “service” provided with the Ryzom Ring extension. Here, the word “service” encompasses all the peripheral features provided alongside the tools for creating and running scenarios. In this article, we will focus on the concepts of collaboration and sharing between pioneers. "

  • Some not so cuddly Kitins.
    RPGVault has a in-character description of the Matis race from Saga of Ryzom. Also included are six screenshots. PETA has launched a protest against the game on the basis that Kitins is too close to kittens and promotes cruelty to animals. Their statement is as follows:

    " These are the four playable options available in The Saga of Ryzom, developer Nevrax' imaginative persistent state title. In commercial service since last fall, it builds on these inventive elements by incorporating many other features of interest. For instance, it has a story aspect designed to permit the narrative on each server to diverge, taking its own path and creating its individual saga. Another is a flexible skill-based character advancement system. A third is an unusual modular scheme that allows players to join various components in a building block-like manner so as to create spells and special attacks that are, in effect, customized according to their particular personal preferences. Of course, these are merely a few selected highlights; in reality, there's much more to know. Luckily, the team has agreed to tell us about its intriguing project in more detail. "

  • In the beginning, there was Atys...

    Nevrax Entertainment takes things (literally) back to the beginning with their "World Tour" of the out-now Fantasy MMOG "Saga of Ryzom."

    Across the universe, past vast galaxies, there was a great fusion of matter, and a unique world came into being. The primeval roots were soon sprouting green tendrils into the sky, fowl were soaring on the wing, and beasts romping in the frenetic miracle of Life.

    There lives on this planet, called Atys, humanoids, called homins. There are four homin races: Matis, Tryker, Fyros and Zoraï. To this day, nobody has managed to shed light on the mystery surrounding their arrival. A legend nonetheless has been passed on through the ages, and this legend is the key to discovering the secret behind the origins of Atys.

    More storyline and screenshots than shake your Saga at in the Ryzom "World Tour" at!

  • Reading the forums, so you don't have to.
    The good folks at Nevrax have put together another Saga of Ryzom forum watch, which is basically a compilation of the best threads. While compiling a list of best quotes by Kevin Pereira on Attack of the Show we found that there weren't any. We reserve the right to substitution and in place of the list we give you this:

    "We decided to gather here the posts made by the Ryzom team on the
    boards: from now on, and periodically, I will write a news compiling
    these posts. It will allow you to know what is said on the boards while
    saving you the trouble of having to browse many threads. ;) This way,
    you will also be able to know what is told on the forums of the other
    communities. "

  • Happy Anniversary Ryzom.
    Nevrax has posted a Letter to the Players of Ryzom on the official site. The band Saga claimed they had never been to Ryzom and that the following was not written by them:

    " Thank you for being extremely patient as we got our act together here. Thank you while we did our ‘spring clean’ patch to clean up a bunch of outstanding issues. Thank you while we put processes in place to get the content finished in a more sane manner, with more quality testing. In general, thank you; because of your patience, the next two months are going to see a whole slough of new content and features delivered to you. "

  • Readers, R2. R2, Readers. There the introduction is complete.
    The folks at Nevrax have posted an introduction to their upcoming Saga of Ryzom expasion, The Ryzom Ring. Britney Spears' publicists were quick to deny that she had any involvement
    in writing, or even reading, the following:

  • A French pixel-fest.
    A gathering of Saga of Ryzom players took place in France. It's possible that they wrote this:

  • Walking the walk and talking the talk.
    Nevrax has posted an internal Q&A with the developers of Saga of Ryzom. After asking themselves questions, they wrote this, probably:

    "It has been a month since my last Q&A! Now that the E3 and reorganization heat is cooling down, it's time to look over some of the questions you asked on the boards in the meantime. There are more questions than usual, and you'll even find some outposts questions answered."

  • If you build it they might not come. Let them build it.
    RPGVault has posted a preview of The Ryzom Ring, a user toolkit for The Saga of Ryzom. We're pretty sure that they wrote this:

    "Announced last month, Ryzom Ring is a very unusual and interesting extension of Nevrax' imaginative massively multiplayer endeavor, The Saga of Ryzom. It has been described as a set of tools that will give players the ability to act as designers by creating their own lands and adventures, which they can then share with others "
