Author and game designer Jason Richards waxes philosophic on writing, muses about RPG design, offers insight into his current projects, and imposes many exaggerations and outright lies on the people of the Internet.
Cue the dramatic music. Trion Worlds has come out swinging against Palladium's legal actions against their new MMO, Rift: Planes of Telera. A day ahead of their meeting before a judge, Trion has finally responded to Palladium's allegations.
Thanks to livingdice.com, we have the documents. I'd encourage you to read the summary found there for the time being, and I'll be back tonight or first thing in the morning here. I'll give you my initial reactions, however, below.
1. Trion is not messing around. No kid gloves. No pulled punches.
2. Palladium's response has merit, but pales in comparison to Trion's statements. Palladium is now clearly on the defensive.
3. I wonder how quickly Palladium decided to "lawyer up" as opposed to taking other actions.
More later. If you have questions or comments, post them and I'll check in from time to time and we'll pow-wow about it. Palladium isn't talking about it, so you might as well talk to a Rifts author, right? I like to consider myself the next best thing, in all things.
If you don't know what I'm talking about, you can check out the former posts on the matter here and here.
