  • EQ Too?.
    Vanguard Gate has posted a Vanguard: Saga of Heroes Interview featuring Bill Fisher. They laughed. They cried. They talked to some guy, and here is what he said:

    "Recently it was mentioned that you spent quite sometime in looking at persian/arabian/egyptian myths/stories in crafting the continent of Qalia. Would you like to elaborate on which myths in particular you were drawn towards?"

  • Saga of Heroes, not to be confused with Saga of those everyday peon type guys.
    WorthPlaying has a preview of Vanguard: Saga of Heroes locked and loaded. Of all the things that they could have written, we are almost sure they wrote this:

    "The buzz around Vanguard: Saga of Heroes is immense. Sigil games is made up of some of the development team behind EverQuest, including CEO Brad McQuaid, former EverQuest producer. Sigil is designing Vanguard around the notion that today's MMOs are becoming too kind and gentle, so they want this game to be as hardcore as EverQuest. The bad-old-days of long corpse runs and xp loss (and possible de-leveling) upon death are back. To those who look back on EQ with nostalgic eyes I utter this warning: Be careful what you ask for, you might just get it."

  • Why isn't it ever forged in the blinding light?
    Those frisky members that frequent our Vanguard: Saga of Heroes site have created some fantastic fan fiction. A friend of a friend said that they wrote this:

    "Smoke bellows through the branches of a lifeless forest.  The trails are damp with earth rot, as if a light mist had passed through.  A clear night sky peers down upon the land below.  Closer to the city - closer to life, the pungent smell of charred wood and roasted meat excites the air.  A dry heat consumes the senses, the still of the night interrupted by a brilliant glow growing in the distance."

  • Vanguard takes a look at crafting. Fighting trees.....Mmmmm.
    Vanguard Crafters has a interview with Salim Grant posted covering crafting in Vanguard: Saga of Heroes. Somebody wrote this. We think it was them:

    "On a recent visit to Sigil Games, we attempted to track down Salim Grant, the lead designer in charge of the crafting system in Vanguard: Saga of Heroes.  Of course, since Salim fears me, he was absent that day.  Or he had a very important family commitment, I can't remember which.  Anyway, he was gracious enough to grant a request to send in some follow up questions which the reporter was too startstruck to ask the other devs when her [sic] was there."
