What's Going Down In Groove Town, posted on Mon Jan 26 12:59:59 2009

So! Domain blogs, eh? Looks like the web 2.0 bolloc^H^H^H^H^H^H fad is spreading. Still, since this forum is here, we might as well make use of it.

In that vein: Greetings from the Forn domain! I haven't decided on exactly what will be posted here, but I figured it would be good to start with an overview of what's happening. For various reasons, I'm not going into details - not least because they're subject to change. However, the broad brush strokes are as follows:

Forn is currently focussed on three areas: Genua, Krull and Llamedos. Genua currently encompasses Genua City and the village of Bois, which I'm sure you all know and... know. Krull will be a continent, with at least two cities, not to mention Cool Stuff such as the Circumfence and Over the Edge. Llamedos will be a place of druidic power and bardic songs, with flying rocks to boot (although you shouldn't boot flying rocks, lest you break toes).

That's the theory, anyway. In practice, we're rather light on available creators, and so we've had to put Llamedos on hold. Most creators are working to bring Krull into the light of day. I'm not going to say anything more about Krull, except that the vision is a fusion of steampunk and pirates.

Work on Genua is proceeding on several projects:

- Development of citizenship criteria, leading to player housing and player shops

- A method, not dissimilar to a grouped version of the Assassin's Run, of redeeming those silly sods who've gotten in over their heads with the Coffee Nostra

- Smarter NPC groups for your fighting pleasure.

- As always, fixing bugs.

So, that's probably enough for now.
