Summit Chat

Posted by Jon Wood on Sep 12, 2005  | Comments

Summit Chat -

Shadowbane takes an interesting path when it comes to developer - player relations. Recently, the developers held a "Summit Chat". Shadowbane defines a Summit Chat as different from a "Developer Chat" in that the Dev chat allows players to ask the devs questions, while the innovative "Summit Chat" reverses the roles as the devs ask players for their opinions.

Welcome to the first Shadowbane Summit Chat! Unlike Developer Chats where players ask the Developers questions, a Summit Chat turns the tables and lets the Developers ask questions to the players. This Summit Chat covers two subjects; the Territory and Divine Favor Systems.

Sachant: Why don't you start Lindorn and tell the others who you are and we'll go down the list then I'll summarize why we're all here and start the first topic
Lindorn: Ok guys, I'm the guild leader of Dark Carnival from the Mourning server, been playing this game since release, started on chaos, then moved to Mourning in August 03, been there ever since
Arnie: Captain o'Tha Salty Maid, The Shipwrecked Pirates---Mourning, Corruption
Judgement: Hey all, I'm Judgement on the Ubi boards. Been playing Shadowbane since its release, From Treachery to Entropy to Wrath and now to Vindication. I'm a board warrior extraordinaire and the current Guild Leader of Exile, the only Aracoix Nation on Test.
Angelmar: Angelmar, been part of the SB community for 4 years or so. Spent all of that time as a Winterblade. Played last phase of closed beta
Angelmar: and release
Angelmar: deception
Angelmar: corruption
Angelmar: wrath
Angelmar: and test
Angelmar: been an IC of Winterblades since the first month of deception
CrawlingChaos: Evening, I'm CrawlingChaos. I started playing just after release ( like month after). I currently play on Redemption server, and am in CoJ guild. I started on Death server.
Kirel Redhand: Introduction: I am Kirel Redhand, the sane duo of two Redhands ( internal rp ). As Sachant eluded to previously, I was one of the original Focus Group members for Wolfpack, during early beta until mid 2004. I am the dejure Guild Leader for Redemption ( the guild ) ~ word is, the server was named in our Honor. I strive for overall balance in gaming. I am looking forward to the Lore Server.
Merek: I am Merek. Been playing with the Winterblades since before release. Played on Deception, Corruption, Test and Wrath
Merek: Ohh, and Saders are the win.
Protonix: I'm Protonix, i've been playing SB for...a few years, don't rightly know for sure when i started, I'm rumored to be IC in many guilds, i'm THE board warrior extraordinaire, and i haven't the foggiest idea why I was chosen to be here. I've pretty much stuck with test my entire time.
Sachant: And that leaves us with Zing and Drenath is missing
Zing: I'm Zing, originally Zingmaster. I started at launch on Chaos, and moved to Mourning with Lindorn with Cohorts of Chaos. I went to Corruption with CoC and OPP, and hated it...worst time in the game, went back to Mourning and played off and on for the last two years
Zing: played too busy with the mba program at Iowa...tried to come back recently...but will probably not be active...even though I want to play on lore
Sachant: Alright. Let me explain a little bit about why you are here.
Sachant: Ok, basically the developers have decided that we want to be able to get a select group of people together to discuss topics that we want feedback on.
Sachant: I've gone through the forums and picked 10 people that are vocal, informed on SB and are respected by the community.
Sachant: Consider this an open forum of sorts. What we want are free flowing ideas and responses.
Sachant: I'll give you the first topic of discussion that we want some feedback on. Again I apologize that Ashen couldn't be here himself to run things but I'm sure we can manage.
Judgement: That's ok, Ashen would end up cleansing us
CrawlingChaos: you are an acceptable substitute. And i am sure you will corekt any spelling errors...
