  • One on the go and two more on the way.
    RPGVault has a Dark Age of Camelot: Darkness Rising interview with Walter Yarbrough, the expansion's producer posted. We remain unconvinced that NHL Hockey settlement talks were postponed
    indefinitely upon realizing that they wrote this:

    "In Mythic Entertainment's popular Dark Age of Camelot the noble ideals of chivalry, justice and honor no longer define daily life in the legendary community. After King Arthur's demise, the idyllic age characterized by the Knights of the Round Table has soon ended. Instead, three realms contend for supremacy. Albion is where the fabled city still stands. Its inhabitants are primarily humans such as Britons and Saracens, plus Half Ogres and Inconnu. Based on Irish themes and populated by races like the Celts, Firbolgs, Elves, Sylvan, Hibernia is a verdant area where many lean toward the magical arts. Norse-influenced Midgard lies to the north, frequently producing strong, hardy warriors. Trolls, Dwarves, Norsemen, Valkyn and others call it home. Each of these domains persistently seeks to assert itself through force of arms, and to capture the treasures held by the others."

  • Does your desk need new paper?
    New Guild Wars deskpaper (wallpaper for you miscreants who use that term) is available at the Official Site. Our attempts to confirm the following information with Michael Jackson's
    attorneys were rudely rebuffed:

    "Ha! It's deskpaper folks.. they don't write anything about deskpaper. If you need an explanation then you probably can't install it anyway."

  • Pig Pen, this is Rubber Duck. Looks like we got us a convoy.
    NetDevil has posted all about convoys (groups) in their upcoming title Auto Assault. Official Pentagon sources maintained their position of plausible deniability in connection with this quote:

    "The odds are against survival in the Central Wastelands. The large groups of powerful factions roaming the Highways - not to mention vying Humans, Mutants, and Biomeks that hate each other with a passion –can sometimes make it difficult to go it alone. It only comes naturally that drivers may feel the need to mutually help each other, if only for short periods of time. These temporary or “pick up” groups of drivers are called Convoys."

  • It's all about the contamination.
    MMORPG has posted a preview of Auto Assault. We are in no position to confirm that Russel Crowe threw a telephone upon
    reading this:

    "First off, the back story. About present day for us the first Alien craft began to arrive, their crashes and collisions raining Contamination down on the planet. Because of this Contamination, mutations began to surface among Humankind and the populace erupted into a panic. Conspiracy theorists had a field day; governments flip-flopped their stance on the subject from vehement denial to promises of a cure and back again. Mutants became the scapegoats of society, herded up into camps and shunned from citizenship."
