Gnauton's back from a trip to the North American CCP office and took a few minutes to post a blog about his experience in Atlanta, some good changes that are coming as a reult of the merger, stories and dymanic content.

You can read more in Wolves, Flesh and Balls.

Inclusion and explanation of Eve's dark and sinister underworlds can never be bad - and 134 live events Shocked I have to log on more.

Dare I ask, did the subject of a CCP style-White Wolf Vampires Requirem MMO come up over bree? (Helmar mentioned something about one in the distant future at fanfest i think)

Development of a World of Darkness-based MMOG is underway. While it is still some years away from release, it is proceeding nicely.

Oh, and honorary gold Dev bars for you. :)

Definitely one of the more hillariously written dev blogs we've seen, I like it Laughing.

While I never have been one for a huge amount of back story, I think White Wolf working on it will be a great thing, especially if it translates into the kind of experience they're known for with the walking in stations. Shady characters and rich, living environments. I can't wait!

Now that CCP has an official office in North America, is it going to be possible to open jobs up over here for Devs/GMs, etc.?

Having played and loved Mage: The Ascension the idea of a World of Darkness MMO both delights and terrifies me.

Vampire and Werewolf were both fairly static systems. You had a character with defined skills and defined limits. As such it was a great system for people who love fighting since it was a system designed for Min/Maxers. And to be fair, at the end, right before Whitewolf rebooted their world they were both getting just silly powerful.

Mage was vastly different. Yes you could get silly powerful but usually you needed a very forgiving GM. If he was being harsh you really had very little in terms of firepower or ability over a normal human.

That being said the sheer amount of flexibility that was built into being a Mage defys any ready attempt to codify it. Look at the LARP rules for the various systems.

Werewolf and Vampire were relatively simple and straight-forward. They were standardized and codified so everyone could follow along. The LARP rules for Mage was a disasterous joke. When there are 3,846 ways to any one thing (I'm not kidding, 9 spheres with 5 power levels in each) how do you make rules and keep the flexibility?

Indeed. Although there are no positions currently listed in NA, there are positions listed for CCP China on the CCP Jobs page.

Does this mean we will see meaningful lunar, planetary, system, constellation and region description on info tabs anytime soon, telling us actually something about what is going on there, tying together game fiction and game content, and maybe even a bit later down the road actually causing some impact on interstellar trade good markets (and in other ways) due to the none-too-insignificant supplies and demands of multi-billion planetary markets and economies?

How does one get involved in live events? Do you have to be in the right system at the right time? Know someone? Supply Auroa with beer? What? I have been playing for a year and have never seen one of these.

Customs, views, paradigms, religions, organizations, intriguing characters, fascinating locales, games, sports, music, culture the list is veritably endless. Those of you who have seen the enormously detailed way in which these guys go about peppering their game worlds with flavor and detail will know what to expect. The world of EVE is about to drop its balls.


so in short lots of chronicles and short stories :) I have personally always thought that the technology of eve could do with expanding to beef up the scientific articles section heh.

At least WW will easily relate to the Blood Raiders and the inherantly dark universe Eve is rather than light & fluffy like WoW.

Has White Wolf talked you into putting psions in yet? Will we be seeing a backstory that reflects AEON/TRINITY or will things be more Travelleresq? Oh and any plans for an Exalted MMO?

Same here. Would like to participate, but how do I learn that something takes place, when and where? Would it be possible to give a short summary what these 100+ live events were, that I can get a better idea what to expect?
