This post over at Don’t Feat the Mutant really reminds me of this post I made a while back, especially when you read the comments over at DFtM. It’s not a bad thing at all, but its funny how we too often hype ourselves to certain ideas without seeing something from all angles. I can only think that one bad PK’ing would ruin the whole experience for many of those commenting, even if they really enjoyed the rest of the game. I’d love to be wrong, but having seen it happen too many times in my years with MMOs, I doubt it.
And speaking of that good stuff in DarkFall, Aventurine has put out what they call “The Blood Scrolls”, a living journal of sorts for the dynamic lore system that is just beginning now. I don’t know what value someone who is not currently playing might get out of them, but as a current player its very nice to have one location to recount what has happened. And because we all want to be e-famous, the little added carrot of having your name included in those Blood Scrolls is a nice touch by AV and should lead to increased participation/competition in future events.
I should have linked to this map site for DarkFall sooner, because it truly is a great page, one that I am more than happy to contribute to. With a guest account your bandwidth is very limited, but you can still get an idea for what the map offers and just how accurate it really is. To get an account you can either contribute information, or send a bit of cash via Paypal. Since I’m now filthy rich off this blog, I had no issue sharing the wealth with another great DarkFall resource.
Finally, in a little Tuesday preview, I’m now the owner of a house on south-west Rubaiyat. How the deal went down, the first PvP trip out of it, and everything else related to home-ownership coming up in the next post.
