Shadowbane Designer Diary
8:42 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

A new Designer Diary has recently been added to the official Shadowbane site. Written by Lead Designer Damion 'Ubiq' Schubert, the diary remarks on Shadowbane's success as a PvP/Siege style MMORPG and lists a number of goals that the designers mean to tackle in the future.

The goals include a number of tweaks to make the siege aspect of SB run more smoothly, and include pledges to increase the stability and performance of both clients and servers, make rebuilding a vanquished city easier, and improving the wall capabilities of cities:

You will see some more improvements in this vein in the next patch, and we have even more plans beyond that. The upcoming siege spires (which I'll discuss in more detail in the next diary entry) should be a big step in that direction - guilds will be able to build siege spires which forbid flight and translocation inside of their city grid.
Those interested in the full list are encouraged to check it out at the provided link.
