During last night's live interview with Shroud of the Avatar's Starr Long, a bit of exclusive lore information was revealed. Players who have been following the game might be wondering why Shroud's world seems to have so much more technology than Garriott's previous games, and Starr was not coy about giving us an answer for that. As in the Ultima series, players' Avatars are transported to the game world from the real world (like the now famous Avatar), but you are not the only one. The reason there's so much technology, Tesla coils and other machinery is because people from our time have been trying desperately to recreate our world's technology.
Watch the full interview below to hear Starr explain this and much, much more.
