Prometheus2012:
Greetings one and all. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce our game and what we are about.

Name: Exile Online
Genre: Cyberpunk Dystopian MMO
Estimated Launch: TBA
Voice comms details: Teamspeak 3 (server IP: ts30.gameservers.com:9165 password: ratsucks123)


Exile online summary:

Overview- Exile Online will be a cyberpunk MMO set in the far future as mankind stuggles to survive political and social strife in a never ending world of plot and subterfuge. Our game will take leads and inspiration from many corners of the scifi/cyberpunk genere including: Bladerunner, Akira, Judge Dredd, Deus Ex, Total Recall and several other sources.

Imagine a world where intrigue and multiple storyline twists can happen at any moment. We will be straying far from the "go here kill 10 rabbits" mission archetype that seems to be so prevalent in other MMOs of today. Our world will be a place where the actions of one individual can have global consequences and ramifications.

Free to play-
The game will be free to download and free to play. We will have a diverse Micro-Transaction style system for income generation.

Guilds/clans-
Exile online will feature in-depth guild mechanics. We believe guilds and clans are the heart of a game, so having diverse and interesting systems in place to encourage cooperative group play is what Exile online will be focussed on.

Player Controlled towns/bases/outposts-
There will be powerful systems in place for guilds and players to create, take and hold territory. If a player is given a plot of land to defend, you can be sure they will fight tooth and nail to keep it.


Dynamic Avatar Creation-
Exile Online will make full advantage of advanced character creation and customisation. Want that tatoo that your mother said you couldnt have? Want to dress up in a pink metal TuTu? You got it.


Player Economy-
All the best items ingame will be crafted by players. In one form or another, everything you have on your character will be crafter by you or another player.

About the team:

Exile is a 4 year old multigaming guild. We have allways spoken at length about how awesome it would be to have our own pet MMO project. With the advent of the great offering from HE, we finally have that chance.  Our development team currently consists of:

Prometheus: Yup its me, "the big cheese" so to speak. Ive played a lot of games for a lot of years, but this is my first chance to make something with my own 2 hands. As co leader of the multigaming guild, ive been through the thick and thin of it. Our main motto is no drama, but we all know that playing online sometimes means you gotta get your hands dirty.

Anway, im 26, from England (cup o'tea) and love the whole aspect of cyberpunk. Ive played a few games of the genre, but they suffered from terrible development teams. Im not saying we are better or worse than those guys, but with this opportunity, at least 10 years from now i will be able to say "i was there".

I use to make maps and mods for Jedi Knight II and III and for the Elder scrolls games, but now i thought it would be a good time to learn a new trade as im not getting any younger. Ive picked up 3ds Max and i have to say, after being daunted at first by the complexity of the program, im now loving it. Ill be making 3d artwork for the game.

Chronos: Was trying to learn coding and scripting from scratch, but it looked like an alien language to him. Having regained conciousness (lost it when looking at the Dom editor for the first time), he pronounced that he will be working on 3d models with me.

Valux: 3d modeller with a degree in CGI and animation.

Crow Bennett: Our resident sound master. Co leader of Exile. Good old chap.

Gonazz: Mr motivator. Has a ton of ideas and storylines on this genre. If you ask him a question on voice comms, make sure you have the next 3 hours unbooked on your calendar.

Daedalus: On and off scripter. Will be spending the next few months relearning to script because he is out of touch. Also will be designing our website.

I know this is turning into a wall of text. But its good to finally actually introduce our home grown project to an outside audience. As you can see, our team lacks scripters. Thats the only spot that we are lacking on at the moment. I know its a huge gap, but we have some leads for scripters that may come on board. Thats not to say we wouldnt highly appreciate picking some talent up from these forums :)
