Designer Chris Moore answers five of Jon Wood's questions and we get two world exclusive screenshots that show off shadows in Hero's Journey as these two series continue.
MMORPG.com: Your website gives us a brief overview of the backstory of Hero's Journey. Are you planning on going the route of some other games and publishing official lore in order to provide a richer and more defined world to your players?
Chris Moore: We try to give the world as much back-story as possible. We want players to be comfortable with their roleplaying choices, and know where they fit with regards to the world as a whole.
A great concept for a world automatically brings with it a desire for its story. From broad swaths of history down to bits of detailed minutia, every tale enriches the world for someone. Whether that information comes from gameplay, website documents, officially licensed literature or even fan fiction, I feel it’s all for the better of the game world and the community.
There are no formal plans for official publications of lore or fiction at this point, but with at least one published fantasy author on our design team, I don’t see this as being too far outside of the realm of possibility.
