To sad that Merp can't live on, to sad that WB is still fighting for it's right to make crappy LotR-games... -_-

Anyway, I like to hear that you want to keep working together on new things. And what you have done for Merp is really amazing. Keep up the good work.

It saddens me to hear your grim news about Merp, Warners bros couldnt/ havent came close to your quality of work . I hope your new Project goes well and i cant wait to see your new game in the Cry engine 3 always wanted an RPG game in one those engines like cry engine or frostbite .

check out warhorse then. it is an rpg in cryengine and (from what I've seen) I like how the combat in that game functions. also Lay of Althas won't just annoy WB, it will annoy any other terrible company that doesn't know a thing about game making and constantly releases terrible games. (I'm looking at you EA!) since if there will be an awesome free game that will be surpassing the quality of a full WB game who in their right mind would buy a WB game? the only difference is that WB will not be able to C&D this:) otherwise it will still be "competing with" (more like crushing) WB's crap.

please try making it realistic by making it somewhat historically accurate. it always bugs me when a sword makes the more unearthly scratching noises while its scraping its way out of the scabbard. I mean why would anyone want to scratch their weapons every time they drew them and alert everyone around them that they are drawing a sword? also I hope cavalry will actually act like cavalry. in other words don't copy the many flaws that other games, movies, films, etc. think are right. this person makes some of the best points about historical accuracy: Youtube.com

I wouldn't worry to much about that, the Epoch Games team will surely be paying attention to realism. Have you forgotten everything MERP stood for? ;)

nope, but a lot of the things that now annoy me I once though actually happened. like torches used indoors or in manhunts at night when all that the hunters are doing is effectively night blinding themselves and telling the person their hunting where they are. seemed normal to me before someone pointed out the MANY flaws those things have.

Another MERP convert here! I was really fired up last night about all the news but I've calmed down now :P I don't have any modding experience (yet), but I'd be more than happy to help out in any way I can.

Hey, guys! I'm a fan who's come over from MERP. I wish you guys all the best on your new IP!
I'm wondering what being a designer entails - I'm considering going into game design as my future career, and will likely be taking it in university. If I find myself suitable, I'd probably offer myself up for joining this project, as it'd make good experience, as long as nobody minds taking a newbie under their wing.

It all depends on what sector of the team you are looking at. What skills do you currently have that we could benefit from? We are looking for anyone who can program, make assets, use the engine, can draw etc.

I can use engines, but it depends. I've had some experience with Unreal Engine and with modding Skyrim/Oblivion, but I've never really scripted. I think I can learn how fairly easily, though. I can draw pretty well (as other people tell me) and I have a graphic tablet for my computer, but my main interest in game design is character/story/gameplay design. I'm a hobbyist writer, and I've actually written up a number of worlds for possible future video game development (2 fully fleshed out, 4 in progress).

Writing is definitely going to be needed. Althas is set in an entirely new world. I'm the lead writer who has done most of the writing behind the new IP. There's also names who has helped a lot with that. But that's it. So writers would be welcome. However, if you want to join as a writer, be prepared to do some reading. There's a growing backdrop of lore behind Althas you will need to catch up on.

Hey, I don't have any kind of references or work out for the public or anything like that, but I do love designing characters (writing standpoint, not actual character models) since I RP a lot with friends. I know you likely want people with plenty of experience, but if you need help with writing I'd love to give it a shot.
