Rift Executive Producer Scott Hartsman has released a new set of notes relating to this past weekend's beta event and planned changes for the third event. Hartsman begins the post with a rather comical, yet festive tone.

“ONCE UPON A TIME in a land called Telara, 573 Guardian players were minding their own business in a region called Silverwood. They were frolicking and levelling, and levelling and questing, and looting and laughing, collecting and crafting…. Ah! What a peaceful time it was.

And then, the world exploded.

Beta 3 will open up all the Souls of the game from the start, allowing players to choose from along with an increased amount of skill points to explore newer and more diverse builds. Also on the way for Beta 3: pet naming, Silverwood music bug fixes and more. Check out Hartsman's full post at The Rift Podcast for all the details.
