Camelot Unchained’s newsletter looks at the state of the build and more

    
20

Camelot Unchained’s 14th newsletter has been sighted in the wild. It says that there will be a beta-focused livestream on Friday, October 2nd, followed by a backer Q&A session. It also sums up all of September’s news and introduces new programmers Marc Hernandez and George Davison.

Additional topics include a look at iterative design, a look at the art department’s progress on human models and armor, and a state of the build update from Brian “Psychochild” Green.

Foggye Vexia Wow, it’s such a lifesaver to have summaries on the wiki! I’ll definitely check it out in the near future, thanks.

Vexia I’d at least read those Bull’s article in the Technical section about favorite tools; it’s amusing read.  The same with the piece on Tierless (whom is a regular here on MOP) .  The piece about iterative design can be very insightful if you don’t follow the game heavily.

Once thing that you may want to consider is the wiki entry for the Newsletter that gives each issue a brief summary, so perhaps you can hunt for what may interest you.

BilfordWimbley Siphaed Yeah, in most games trolls can only thrive because of the lack of reputation and social checks. Camelot Unchained might be the only upcoming game that’s designed in such a way that those things could (partially) return, which would automatically reduce the amount of trolls (of the bad kind).

Unfortunately, I don’t have the time to pore through those newsletters so chock full of information right now, but I am really excited for the class reveals! I’m nowhere near close to deciding which archetype I want to play.

Another great update.  I am also looking forward to hearing Beta 1 information during your upcoming live-stream Friday.

Siphaed Well said. I think this game may filter out the trolls in the game, being as gear is crafter driven. Simply excluding these trolls from guilds, using crafters to get goods, and in general ostracizing said player will shut them off from the ability to take part in 99% of the game. You have to have a server community that is willing to commit to these measures though.

Mark Jacobs DahkohtLewin This is cool. I would like to buy it if the Australian dollar wasn’t so terrible.

To answer the question on an RP server, it would be great to have one an RP server in a PvP realm game.  Oh the glory that would be.  Finding guilds that have true realm pride and attack/defend objectives against endless sieges, not for the sake of loot but for the sake of the glory of the battle. It is something that right now is truly lacking in other games offering similar multi-faction PvP set ups.

    However, leaving it to the players alone and no true DM/GM support (this what I took from the newsletter?) is committing an abortion of said server.  Unfortunately there are Joe Shmoes out there that will join the server with non-RP names, talking in 4th-wall breaking speech, and deliberately interrupting other player RP events.   This is very common on RP servers across many games.  Knowing how great some RP communities are out there, maybe it would be possible to find volunteer GM’s that would have limited event tools and a higher call to admins for rule breakers?   I’m sure that dedicated players would line up for such things.  

Also, …need part 2 of the story of the Valkyrie. A very dark short story as it may be, I could really see the events expanded upon into a full book (probably a far darker book than the setting already provides too).  Although the context of what’s given does indicate that the girl survives through pt 2 (right? please say she does!),I do hope the little boy does as well.    Although there is survival and there is another kind of survival already.  Probably wishes he was dead right now. :(
