Q: In Black Prophecy, crafting involves using resources and blueprints to piece together new weapons or ship parts. Aside from the in-game item shop, how do you gather your resources?
You gather your resources by killing and looting enemies of course! This can occur both against mobs, or computer controlled enemies, and also in PvP.
Q: In Garrett Fuller's "Moving to Browser" article from last week's show, he mentions two browser-based games specifically (one in beta, one in development) that help to exemplify just how far the Browser medium has grown. Name both games, and their developers.
BigPoint's Battlestar Galactica Online and Gazillion Entertainment's Fortune Online.
Q: What is the name of the in-development MMO that Jon Wood wrote about in which he said: "Yup, this game is going to be a full on open PvP, fantastical settlers, crafting and farming MMO with permanent death"?
Salem, from Seatribe and Paradox.
Q: In Garrett Fuller's article on the Guild Wars 2 presentation, we were given information about the Norn. What are the four animal spirits that a Norn is to choose from during the character create process?
Bear, Wolf, Raven and Snow Leopard
Q: Of the highlighted changes made reference to in the Cataclysm Post-Mortem article, which of them is viewed as a bit of an error in hindsight, having changed the theme and tone of a particular zone?
Garrett Fuller explains in the article that Desolace may have suffered from its Cataclysm revamp, as it no longer conveyed desolation, the feeling of hopelessness and despair that inspired its namesake.
Q: Which game, in my article, did I describe as having, upon first glance, no business being called an MMO?
World of Tanks, which incorporates MOBA gameplay with a Massive Clan System.
Q: What are the four "Pillars" of The Secret World, as outlined in Jon Wood's article?
The Modern Day Setting, Character Progression, The Conflict and The Story
