  • Who is Lady D?

    Vanguard Spheres answers that question for us! In a continuing series, they have posted an interview with Gary Grobson, otherwise known as Lady Daegarmo.

    Some of you have known "Lady Daegarmo" in times past. A popular figure in Norrath (especially the PvP circles), Daegarmo has made the transition to Telon and is an ever-watchful eye in the Pit, finding NDA breakers, beta sellers and keeping a lid on things in general.

    Known for the gruffness of his ways, Gary Grobson has a marshmellow center that cares deeply for the community and his Pit-mates and a funny streak that has always kept players laughing as they peek around corners to see if he's still there!

  • Beta Journal #1: Bandits on Lomshir Plain

    Are we breaking the NDA? Noooo! This is sanctioned. Brad McQuaid, Executive Producer of Vanguard: Saga of Heroes, asked his beta testers if they'd like to write up some of their beta experiences to share with Vanguard fans. Shayalyn jumped at the chance. So we've got a journal for you, live from Vanguard's Beta 3! How did Shayalyn and her group defeat a bunch of bandits on Lomshir Plain, including their boss? Very carefully, as it turns out. You'll have to read the journal to learn more.

    "I’d tried pulling these raiders myself before finding a group. As a Psionicist, I’m very capable of crowd control. But I hadn’t been prepared to see four of them rushing me. At the time, I turned tail and sprinted off to safety. Now, heading back toward the camp, I was glad that I was in good company. This time I had a Rogue, a Warrior, and a Blood Mage at my side. I felt sure we’d be able to handle this particular adventure."

  • Find Out What The Devs Think of AGC

    MMORPG.com has posted a dev diary written by the producer of Priates of the Burning Sea, John Tynes.

    The AGC is very different from E3 -- or at least, from the E3 That Was. It really is a conference, meaning it's nothing but panels, roundtables, and lectures. There is a small exhibit hall but it's full of companies selling middleware and services to developers and studios. No one is in the exhibit hall showing off games in any real way. In fact, the only booth I saw where you could pick up a joystick and play was the Microsoft Casual Games booth, so if you want to fly to Austin to play Geometry Wars, go for it!

    Keep reading to see what else John Tynes has to say and don't forget to stop by the forums at Ten Ton Hammer and let us know your thoughts on this game and all your favorite MMOs!
