Hi Fencing Zealot, sorry, but I'm not aware of us ever saying anything about your company.
I apologise on behalf of Epoch Games if we have caused offence with anything we have posted, we don't and have never had any intention of offending anyone or anyone's work.
And I assure you that if we find that anyone on the team has publically depreciated your work while representing Epoch Games, there will be action taken.
I hope you understand, but also bear in mind that posting things like this will not help. Contact us privately if there is an issue.

I'm not sure if you've already answered this, but will this be populated? When I play some games similar to what this is going to look like, i.e. Oblivion and Skyrim, I find that it's really sparse, and cities don't seem much like cities. What will settlements and stuff like that be like?

We're looking into having the world as alive as possible. We currently have ideas for how we can make towns as bustling as possible, we just need to be able to apply it to the game in a way that doesn't kill the playability. ;)

And with that announcement, Althas now has it's own page. From now on, the majority of news and images will go there as well as all the lore posts. The "First Look" series will continue for some time as we introduce the world of Althas.

So now I have to get out of the habit of checking epoch games since there won't be much to see here, right?

btw: I still check MERP at least 5 times a day...

Epoch Games will now only contain team information and major Althas announcements. Although the Althas news posts will be shared on here too, its easier to see news on the game page.

I have a design proposition. As I notice that you have a lot of coast (yes I did notice this). I would love for you to make something like the south coast of Britain. If you don't know what I mean, just google it.

I think this and some rocky terrain inland would add a lot of diversity that I know I yearn for in games.

There are areas of coast that will have decent cliffs, mostly up the east coast of the island.
