Hey Folks! Hope everyone had a good weekend. We managed to sneak in some yard work before a freak snowstorm hit Seattle. And now it looks like a proper Rocky Mountain winter out there. Pretty!
Back at the office, I continued gearing-up for the announcement. I decided over the weekend that I should really publish the vast setting info Michael and I have been working on over the past year or so. It's exactly the kind of stuff I'd fawn over while awaiting a game launch, back in the days when I had time to fawn over upcoming games :)
So this morning, I figured out how to setup a new content type for wiki-like articles, and got started adding entries. It took pretty much all afternoon, but there are now 30 articles of setting info, each about a page or two long. They consist of mostly locations or companies/products in the System. And there's a lot of lore and history to pick from the collection.
I also briefly considered adding the super-sized Xinhua article, which is easily 4-6 pages long. However, there's some content in there which gets confusing, since it's not clear where Xinhua on Earth ends, and the off-world Xinhua begins.
Similarly, there's a working timeline of events leading up to the game's current day (2079). I would like to publish that, too, someday. However, there are some details in there which need working out.
Still, though, 30 pages of lore to peruse seems like a nice bonus for anyone who wants to dig into the game lore, and immerse themselves in the world!
