Dragonshard Community Update #11

Greetings Dungeoncrawlers!

It's time for the next Dragonshard update. In addition to our weekly Q&A with our friends at Liquid this week we we will be focusing on two of the Monster types found in Dragonshard. The first is the Iron Golum , and the the Dire Giant Cobra.. Also in other news we know that there has been some confusion regarding the Dragonshard Beta Test in the near future. We have new desktop art coming this week so stay tuned for that, and lastly before we get into this weeks Q&A and monster info make sure to check out the great new preview at Worth Playing!


-The Dungeonmaster

Iron Golem: The Iron Golem has a humanoid body made from iron. It's features are much smoother than those of a stone golem. It moves with a ponderous but smooth gait. Each step causes the floor to tremble. Iron golems are mighty combatants and they strike with deadly accuracy and incredible force.

Dire Giant Cobra: Tainted by the abyssal influence of demons who stalk the forsaken depths of Xen'drik, these massive serpents silently stalk the ruins of Qalatesh searching for unwary adventurers upon which to prey. One must also be wary, as a writhing den of these deadly snakes often means that a cunning Medusa lurks nearby...

The DM: What past experiences have Liquid brought into the development of Dragonshard?

Liquid: Liquid has made Lord of the Ring: War of the Ring and Battle Realms (as well as Battle Realms: Winter of the Wolf). The people here at Liquid, however, have helped develop all sorts of games, From Command & Conquer, C&C Red Alert, the Might and Magic and Heroes of Might and Magic series, The Hulk, the Madden series, Shrek 2, and lots of others.

The DM: What kind of research has gone into the planning and development of

Liquid: Not too much, actually. We started out making a Dating Simulator. I'm being silly, of course. Tons of research has gone into the planning and development, from tech features like physics and normal mapping, to all sorts of D&D books as reference material for art and gameplay elements. On top of all of that we work with Wizards of the Coast (the people who own and operate D&D) and draw from their vast knowledge-base of all things Dungeon & Dragons.
