Outlaw country musician to debut album in Shroud of the Avatar

    
43

You’re going to have to follow us on a strange journey with this story. So there’s this “outlaw country” musician, Shooter Jennings, who is getting ready to release his seventh album, Countach. According to the description (and bizarrely awesome cover), the album is “a sound-collage-style journey through ’80s and ’90s culture, innovative songwriting, genre-bending fiddle-meets-synthesizer soundscapes and a shrine to pioneers of books, bytes, and beats.”

What’s really interesting here is that Jennings will be unveiling Countach in Shroud of the Avatar at a premiere party in the game. Why Shroud? Well, it could be because Richard Garriott makes a guest appearance on the album, not to mention that Jennings is a huge fan of the Ultima series and a backer of the MMO.

The in-game premiere party will take place starting 8:00 p.m. EST on February 22nd and is being fully organized by the Shroud of the Avatar community. Attendees will need to be backers and are encouraged to get together at Bear Tavern for the event.

Jennings said that this debut is his way of giving back to developers who were influential in his life: “Much as Richard and Starr Long have done the same by creating the worlds they have, they gave it back to me. And then through my love of their art, I am trying to give back to them, and give to future generations of the lore of new Britannia and the innovations of its creators.”

I’m busy playing the CBT of Black Desert Online.   The next great MMO that is suppose to rule the genre.   BDO with your pretty graphics, same stupid quests, auto run to quest objective, cash shop, cookie cutter classes, Skinner box shiny +1 gear of longer epeen, grind fest, mindless leveling, repetitive game play, trying to appear skill based but all based upon your gear pvp, kiddie infested mishmash of garbage.

I log into Massively while auto running to my next quest and read this story about Shroud of the Avatar.   I suddenly realize how much I miss the truly revolutionary game play and depth of SOTA.

Shroud of the Avatar you can not release soon enough.   Save us from ourselves.

disUserNameTake BryanCo  He’s only half that Waylon.  He himself is still a full Waylon though as names don’t follow your “rules” about genetics!

To the right, that was a scene from David Cronenberg’s Scanner…

BryanCo disUserNameTake Haven’t you ever read any Richard Dawkins?  The offspring only has half a parent’s genetic material.  The other half is from Mrs. Jennings.  :)

disUserNameTake  His birth name is Waylon Jennings.  So he’s a full Waylon, not half.
