1: The Influence System. Whats up with it?

2: What kinds of things can we expect in the offline demo? IE Weapon options, family types, crafting, etc?

3: Currency has been a hot topic lately. Will any starting kingdoms have standardized currency when the game starts or will the world exist with purely bartering before players arrive?

  1. Last week you stated that "at launch" the game will have many region based servers (eu, oceania, etc). Many groups are shooting to enter the first available server thats progress carries over into launch and having this knowledge will allow them to say what server region they will be on for recruitment. So is there information on how you will introduce testing to players, will it all be US?

  2. Will players have the available landscaping tools to make the hill with the cliff from the latest in game image? (pull the land up smooth "like the sims" and then cover the cliff with rock props) I'd assume the landscaping system works the same as the architecture tool only instead of a blueprint we get a render of the land to modify.

  3. Horse and mount breeding, how in depth are you planning to make it?

  1. Will rain prevent starting a camp fire? Or put it out if it was light already?

  2. Once you (Caspian) said that a Lich needs to keep doing the evil acts he performed to become a Lich, that's the reason a good Lich isn't possible. Does this mean that if he stops doing that, he will eventually permadie? And also, does it also mean he needs to have access to the phylactery to perform this acts/rituals?

  3. When will be the Kickstarter announcement?

  1. Will you be able to learn combat skills by reading books? Like manuscripts or manuals? Maybe initially get the general idea of how to use the skill but you master it over time?

  2. Will there be more than one way to Fish? Spear Fishing, fly fishing, etc? Anything you'd like to strive for like in Zelda?

  3. Could I cause land slides or set a trap up where a boulder would roll down a hill?

  1. Would you do interviews with others on YouTube such as a lovely Headmistress. :p

  2. Can you expand on the guild and forums games you mentioned once before in a Q&A?

  3. Will you do anything special for people at Pax? Other then the demo of course. Maybe like gift bags of goodies or a code to get a little influence? :)

  1. You've spoken of the community impacting game lore before the game releases. What specific means are available to us to accomplish this?

  2. Will the Cult of Rahunei be allowed to perform human sacrifices, in honor of his great achievements in the land of Imgur?

  3. What percentage of the Elyrian economy do you think will be held by NPC activity versus PC activity?

(edited) Q.1) is it possibale to have a broken limbs? for example, if you broke your leg you would move slower.

1) Currency has been talked about a lot in the IRC and the community recently, do you want to clarify how it will work in terms of minting, foreign exchanges etc...

2) Can a King be a Vassal? I ask this because there could be a time where one Kingdom can take over several and they declare themselves a empire and have the kings as vassal titles.

3) How will you be able to form new kingdoms, since eventually there will be many movements to create there own kingdoms, there is a lot of realistic premise with this?

1: How in-depth does scribing go, what would we be able to create?
2: Would we be able to write books and letters? (Both formal (teaching a skill) and casual, recreational books and letters?)
3: Can we become linguists, studying all the current and ancient languages?

2/22/2016 6:42:44 PM #10
  1. Is it possible to build a secret room inside someone else's house without them noticing?

  2. Can we block projectiles with melee weapons ala lightsaber style fighting?

  3. Is there Fist weapons and do they behave differently than unarmed?

2/22/2016 6:42:51 PM #11
  1. Will you be able to put a custom symbol on the blade of a sword or other metal works?

  2. Will there be funerals or burials of corpses?

  3. Will there be currencies that are player produced and managed?

2/22/2016 6:43:33 PM #12

how extensive the building system is for example, roads and sewers? And can we build cities to a cliffside of a mountain and is there the possibility of making cities in caves like Erebor from the Hobbit movie?

Q1. Gamers have always been creative in making the best of taking advantage of game mechanics to further their ends. As an example in Archage you could ride your horse in endless circles to increase riding skills, In Darkfall there was a combat wall where people would attack until near death to increase skills and the victim would gain defensive skills while healers would gain healing skills and in SWG rangers would set up camps on highly traveled paths to get survival skills. Will you work to attempt to block these efforts or allow them.

Q2. Will different types of injuries require different types of treatments? Cuts require bandages, burns require salves, broken bones require splinting, poisoning require antidote, ect?

Q3. If I paid for 2 sparks would I be able to have them create a marriage bond for the purpose of creating offspring?

2/22/2016 6:51:32 PM #14

Q1. Will there be Whips in the game? and if so what types (cat o nine tails?)

Q2. A previous IRC screenshot has shown a nude male running through a field, does this mean our characters can go full nude? or will they be barbie and ken style? (no junk in the trunk)

Q3. Last week you hinted at a community within prison, so if someone has served their time in jail will they be forced to leave, or can they stay in prison by choice? Maybe they are a mob boss who runs things from inside jail, or they make money by supplying inmates with smuggled in stuff.

How far will character mutations go? Are we just talking about eye and hair color, or will more noticeable or significant mutations be possible? i.e. Birth defects
