  • Why did pirates use a plank? Why not just push the guy off the side?
    Game Daily has posted an interview with Akella, the developers of Age of Pirates. We're pretty sure that they wrote this:

    "...until E3 2005, when Akella, developer of the Sea Dogs game(s), announced Age of Pirates, essentially the next swashbuckling RPG in the Sea Dogs line. We had a chance to sit down with Renat Nezametdinov, project manager for Age of Pirates, to hear more about what gamers can expect from Age of Pirates, as well as what the team learned from its previous two outings about the pirate lifestyle and the power of its Storm graphics engine."

  • Go Turbine. Go Turbine.
    The Boston Globe has a story posted about Turbine and their push to get Dungeons and Dragons Online: Stormreach completed for the holiday season this year. We're nearly confident that they wrote this:

    "Now comes phase two. Over the next two years, the company will introduce new games based on two of the most beloved fantasy franchises. In 2006, Turbine will release the first massive online game based on J.R.R. Tolkien's ''Lord of the Rings" trilogy. Turbine will publish the Tolkien game on its own, rather than pay a share of the profits to a major game publisher. The company is taking a more cautious approach with Dungeons & Dragons Online, teaming up with the French game publisher Atari Inc."

  • DDO with no GPS.
    Lost? The Dungeons and Dragons community managers at TenTonHammer.com have a solution. We like to call them maps. Maybe, possibly, they wrote this:

    "I updated the Maps link with all the maps created by Wizards of the coast and a few maps that have been enhanced with city and region names. These are all the maps I have been able to locate on the web. Take a look and get a feel for the world of Eberron. These maps should be useful for all the PnP players out there also. "
