Good Job Dudes
« Topic Start: September 03, 2020, 01:41:49 PM »
I wanted to congratulate everyone involved in the transformation done to the East Continent and to all the rps and events that brought us up to it.

Very well done, and I wanted you to know that as a player I think it is a good job done.

As a character, Benjamin may have some bones to pick with you, but me the player loves it.  :)

Thanks a lot ;D

It's always a risk doing big changes like that; I've been pleasantly surprised at the response thus far.

I'm curious what in particular brought on the changes?

Good to see people view the changes positively. I mean the past few big changes did not involve any good memories for the majority of players... Good to finally see an interesting change.

They're a long time in coming, particularly the breaking of Sirion's defensive wall. We also knew that the islands were just too poor to be viable as anything but a realm of outcasts, which doesn't make for good gameplay.

I'd been working on a few different versions of a modified EC for a little while, after asking Rowan on Discord to put together some mockups (the majority of the change in overall design can be credited to him, though I mixed and matched from his versions), but was concerned over possible backlash, primarily from Sirion and Nivemus. Then, when they pulled that stunt in Commonyr, I decided I didn't care what Sirion and Nivemus thought; I was going to do what I knew was best for the continent as a whole.

Oh also is the traversability of the seas new? I actually hadn't had a chance to try them before.
