This Q&A session was originally posted at the now-defunct IanStorm.com [1].


IanStorm When will we see craftable/growable fruits and vegetables?
Evocare Although this would be a natural (and enjoyable) extension of the plant system, we don't have it scheduled right now. We've considered taking further advantage of the plant system in a number of ways, since it seems clear that players are interested in using the system to grow various game resources, but we haven't settled on the implementation or the schedule just yet.
IanStorm When we will be able to change the font/colors/size in the 3d client's journal? The current ones are really very unreadable.
Evocare More font/color/size options for our clients are definitely on our wish list. We're addressing a number of our substantial and longstanding client wish list items in Age of Shadows, and expect to continue that trend (even more aggressively) afterwards. When this particular feature makes it in, I can't say for sure right now.
IanStorm With the recent release of the Virtue of Valor, what's the current timeline for the release of the remaining Virtues?
Evocare The current timeline is to continue to release the Virtues as they appropriately tie into our scenarios and publish schedules. I can't reveal at this point exactly which virtues will come in which publish, but we do expect to keep them coming.
IanStorm With the success of the current scenario and the new quest system, are there plans to further develop this concept and provide quests in the future?
Evocare Yes. One of the options we're considering for the future is further rounding out the quest system features so our designers can provide you with quests that are deeper, more long-term, and more re-playable. This kind of enhancement is still a ways out, but it's definitely an option we're considering seriously.
IanStorm With the release of Age of Shadows fast approaching, will there be another scenario before it's release?
Evocare The Age of Shadows release will essentially be a very substantial scenario of its own, with a ton of new content and several game systems. However, there won't be another separate scenario between now and the AoS launch. We're already going into testing for AoS, and in order to get as clean a launch as possible, it's for the best that we not try to do too much at once. ;]
