Thanks to Austin and Troy for the heads up!


In addition, here is some new info from Chris Taylor:

First, he discusses PvP in the game:

Some thoughts:

  • There will be lots of PvP, but that won't be the only activity.
  • There will be restrictions. Our vision of PvP requires player consent.
  • PvP can occur pretty much anywhere in the world, but not all players can partake in PvP. This goes beyond the /duel command; there is a whole different system in play here. It's not the old EQ-style PVP switch. It's something new. We're just not ready to give details at this time.
  • If you heavily commit to PvP, you will be rewarded. It will be risky, but the rewards are designed to make it worthwhile. If you'd like to dabble in PvP, you will still be rewarded and won't risk as much. We hope to entice more people to be involved in PvP, without making it a requirement.

In another thread, he expands a bit more on player death:

There will be a penalty for "defeat". We plan on making it painful enough that you want to avoid it happening, but not so painful that you log out and immediately throw your keyboard and monitor out the window. Somewhere in between would be nice.

Repeated defeats will be more and more ***************. [EDIT: Oh, snap, the Big Idea filter caught that one, sorry.)

And has also posted a poll on hidden character bonuses:

This poll question involves the character creation phase of the game.

You would create your character in the normal way. But along with everything you do, you’d get one (or maybe more) hidden bonuses. The bonus would be something similar to a Perk, but maybe not that big and/or not even something on the Perk’s list.

This will NOT affect your character creation at all. You would still build it to your specifications.

This bonus may not manifest itself early on. There would be ways to discover what it was, if you couldn’t tell from occurrences in play.

The idea is to insure your character is special and different from any other character out there. (As well as have a secret or two to discover.)

And more concept art from the game's artists Serg Souleiman, Jeff Clendenning and Natiq Aghayev:

Thanks Ausir!

Spam, spam, Spam, sSPAM, ... Spam, spam, Spam, sSPAM





Will try, try, again to get a new password for the I-play forum.



FOOL web page?

Signed up, and a privacy reflex typed my first name twice.

Trust I-play wasn't seriously considering they require more then a valid e-mail account and a persona tag for differentiation.

What, want my ATM pin number next?


Checked the spam 'hole' and deleted:

1: online pharmacy link,

2: an on line pharmacy come on exploiting the facebook account opened to vote for Team Poland at some long past game competition.

3 + 4: a double entry, looks like the FBI counter terrorism letter head is expediting the import of foreign wealth to worthy US citizens for the low, low, low fee of $260 !!
They didn't want an ATM number either, just the money, must be legit!

Forget the rest, because the privacy reflex deleted the spam too soon to reinforce recall.

Nothing from I-play. icon_sad

Well, the spam hole is empty and ready when ever I-play digitizes my very own ghoul missive.

Or sends me a new password ....

I'll just sit here in the dry darkness and conserve my bodily fluids ...

This is why newbies shouldn't be allowed. One of the greatest heroes of DACK make their bi-yearly appearance and they're too busy touching themselves and slamming the keyboard to grasp the beauty present in 4too's presence.

He's talking about the other numbnutz, numbnutz.



I feel kind of apathetic about this stuff. It does look great, it has a lot of potential, but after all the shit we've been through, all they hype, all the bullshit over the years...

I reserve the right to not care until there is an actual, concrete game on shelves and can judge for myself with my own eyes. Until then, this is all ephemeral shit floating around the ether to me. Who's to say Bethesda doesn't kill FOOL in it's crib?
And even if they don't do I really give a shit about any MMO?

I really do like the fact that Chris Taylor is involved, he knows his shit. I have a lot of respect for him. That's the brightest spot I see here. Is he capable of overcoming the ineptitude of Interplay, the legal challenges by Bethesda and the inherent pitfalls of bringing Fallout to the MMO genre? I don't know, but I commend him for fighting the good fight.

CT show DACK some fuckin' love bra'.
