Honestly, not much to say about myself. Just a writer, gamer, (somewhat weak) artist. Pretty boring, I guess xD I AM working on an indie project, however: www.indiedb.com/games/the-lays-of-althas-sundered-order If you're reading this, come check us out :D

This is WAY too early to ask about things like this. We do hope to have modding compatibility, but that would take a lot of work and, if we do decide to implement it, would come much further down the line.

Pretty much any game has those, it only depends on whether they're enabled at release. Right now, we're leaning towards "no".

This will probably vary. It will be impossible for the main character to kill thousands of guards - this is hardly God of War or Call of Duty - we're aiming to keep combat difficulty somewhat realistic, so even a very skilled player would find it extremely difficult to take on a couple of dozen men at once. The skill of leaders would likely depend on the leader himself - a military leader or a hero would be good at combat, a fat king who sits in his throne wouldn't fight, but would have plenty of bodyguards.

No, we wouldn't :P It's not as simple as "quests become unavailable" or "content is locked", we want to have a game world that progresses over time. As such, an insane amount of variables wold have to change if an important NPC dies - battles might not happen, questlines will have to change, reactions of NPCs will differ, all over the entirety of Althas.

We're very definitely trying to distinguish cultures in such ways. It makes for a more interesting game, and is realistic. As Concept Art Lead (and a writer), I'm going to try my best to accomplish this goal.

We have no definite plans as of yet - it'd be premature to set anything down in concrete just yet, seeing as how our first project is huge and is nowhere near done. However, we have thought of different ideas, possibly expanding on the LoA IP, or moving onto new projects.

This is not the opinion of the team, but I personally would love to work on a sci-fi game after Sundered Order is completed.

That might be something to consider, but for now, let's focus on getting our first project through the door, first! Anyway, Kapz is correct - there was never any centralized government, and the main conflict is between only two nations instead of a bunch of different states.

Unfortunately, MERP is dead and all development on the mod has ceased. Lays of Althas: Sundered Order is a separate project, and while we retain members of the original mod team, Althas is a completely separate game being made in a different engine in an original fantasy universe.

I think Skyrim is about 37 kilometers-square large. The total size of our Althas heightmap is 1024 kilometers-square. So I suppose you could say that our ambitions do hold true.

Our last update was 2 months ago - it's natural that less people pay attention :)
As Kapz has mentioned, a lot of the stuff we've been doing is foundation work and not flashy bitz that people like to see. Hopefully we'll have more updates for everybody to check out soon!

That's actually our main idea for the mobile app, which HAS to be played unless you want to die every two minutes ingame.

Don't worry, we're not going to clam up and stop talking with everyone. I'm thinking it'll be more like making sure we don't leak things like assets, game code, or major spoilers out. Also, I could be wrong - this hasn't been discussed in-depth just yet.

I wasn't good enough to join as a concept artist, so I was originally a writer when I joined. However, now that my art skills have beefed up a little and I'm the most active concept artist, I've been promoted to our Concept Art Department Overseer (lead). Meanwhile, I am still a writer and help out with PR. No need to apologize - I'm not offended at all :)
It would be inappropriate to leak out game info unofficially - we will release information when we deem it ready. Most projects have NDAs, and we will likely install one in the future.

Unfortunately, the quest ideas right now are SERIOUS spoilers, as they're for the main quest we're working on.

We want to make a good game - we are definitely aiming for more than just fetch quests.
However, at this early point in development (we are still moving out of preproduction), I regret that I cannot give you specific examples of existing quests.
