New Areas

AhmetAhmet Wherever I wanna beMember Posts: 3,370 @@ - Legendary Achaean
So who's exited for what's (from what I can tell) being hyped up as the largest area release in quite some time? WHOOOOOOOO!

Ideas, thoughts, what you'd like to see? New bashing areas, new questlines, new honours quests, anything you'd like to see for the release of these areas, or that you'd like to see brought back? Point out any interesting bits of information about them that ye've picked up around Sapience or the forums too, if ye'd like.

P.S. Eta on Fuschal/Myrinia/Crysinn @Tecton? ;)
Huh. Neat.

    I don't think anyone's hyping it up yet, though I'm glad you're excited! It's a long ways from release.

    @Sarapis : Vaguely related, are there still such things as mortal builders or were the removed completely in favour for celani/slave labour?
  • SarapisSarapis Member, Administrator Posts: 3,398 Achaean staff
    There are mortal builders, yes, but they don't look like a very active group. Last post on the forum group for them is from November.

    new honours quests
    I hate time-limited ones that are "you can attempt it once at a specific time of month and if not you have to wait until next month to try again" or the like, though. Please no more of those.

    Or ones where anyone can try to do part of it, and they can fail, and whether they succeed or fail no one else can do it until the next year... I'm looking at you, Istarion.

    Probably all died off.

    Mortals are a flimsy and fickle folk.

    @Sarapis, do the mortal builders have a tendency to not do their jobs (i.e. they're active in-game or whatever, but not building), or is it that they're people who've mostly gone dormant?

    Related question: Might there be a call for mortal builders in the near future if the current group isn't very active?

    I can't really comment much insofar as I've not been directly involved with mortal builders for a decade. 

    I will say though that almost everyone who hasn't been involved in game development before dramatically underestimates the amount of work it takes to do anything, and so often I think what happens is people bite off more than they can chew, get dispirited, and decide to give up.

    Maybe. The question is more whether we have a need for them. Mortal builders aren't able to build areas on their own. It requires a lot of experienced divine help and oversight.

    Uhh.. with a little resourcefulness, you can eliminate the once-a-year aspect to that quest. I could complete the quest every month if I wanted to.
