Development Info - posted by DarkUnderlord on Wed 2 July 2008, 12:38:42Tags: Piranha Bytes
Probably because they couldn't get their shit right with the Gothic series, Piranha Bytes are developing a new RPG set in a new world. Go ahead and read the FAQ:
Creating a new universe gives you the chance to introduce new and believable races. Is this opportunity being used?
The newly won freedom is being utilized; a new mythology leaves room for new and original ideas.
Will there be cool and realistic weapons in RPB? Are you designing the swords?
The weapons look very realistic, but there will be a few special weapons. Our “Swordmaster” models them by hand.
Will there be magic?
Naturally! There has been a lot of modification, as far as the system is concerned.
None of the features from Gothic are being used. Does this mean we have to do without fireball or fire rain?
Fireball is the standard attack spell of a magician and in nowhere protected by law. The whole thing is mainly based on familiar characters, music, own monsters, gods etc.
Will there be shields and fighting with two weapons?
But of course!
Will there be flails and explosives?
Believable races? What, Elves and Dwarves aren't believable now but dual-wielding is?
