  • Concerns Worthy of Note

    Nothing and no one is perfect though, so I thought it might be a good idea to set my fandom aside for bit and take a critical look at Richard's new work. If nothing is perfect, then there must be some flaws or challenges worthy of conversing about. Besides, it's through examining the imperfections that we sometimes come to truly appreciate art and all its true complexity. As their 10th release approaches, it might be a good time to take that sort of look at Shroud.

  • Checking in on Update 9

    Last week I hosted a livestream interview with Richard Garriott and Starr Long of Portalarium. Portalarium is currently working on Shroud of the Avatar.

I asked Richard and Starr about the latest news with update 9 and about what we could expect in update 10.

  • Release 8 - Good Old Ultraviolance

    I rolled into Austin beneath dark and water-laden skies last week to see what the guys at Portalarium were cooking up for Release 8 of their Shroud of the Avatar. Thunder rocked the sky as I stepped from my truck and turned to see lightning striking across the menacingly named Greystone Building. The drama of the moment seems appropriate in hindsight, because I've now seen what the team has planned for their next release.

  • Major Changes to Backer Tiers

    One of the most interesting things about watching the development of Shroud of the Avatar has been observing the interactions between developers and backers. I have most definitely seen some awesome relationships created between players and developers. It's always sort of seemed to me that guys like Matt Higby from SOE's PlanetSide franchise were the model other developers and studios should look to for guidance on player-interaction, but I think I need to change that opinion, now.
