I received this email from Lori Ann Cole, today. It's got very exciting news and she asked me to share it with you guys if I wanted! thumbs.gif

So here it is:
................................................................................
............................................

Hi Elsa,

I just re-registered for the More Glory site, but I can’t post in the forums yet. So I thought I’d give you an update on our lives and let you post what you want to the forums.

I was trying to comment on the status update that Blake started.

Corey mentioned in his update that we might be doing a remake of QG1. My response to that information was much like some of the comments on the forum – why would we want to do that? We really prefer to do something new.

So Other than that wacky idea, the rest of the things Corey mentioned were topics we have had under serious discussion lately.

However, Corey and I had a very interesting time at Comic Con last weekend. We spent many hours in meetings at the convention with various people. As a result of these meetings, I can say that a Kickstarter project is definitely in our future. However, we don’t know what project we will be funding yet. It will depend upon other people, development houses, and game companies.

I would like to start the Kickstarter in late October, so that will give you all a chance to get excited about the mystery project even though it’s still a mystery to us.

At Comic Con, they held a panel on Kickstarting games with Oded Sharon from Adventure Mob, , Chris Jones (Tex Murphy), Chris Pope (Two Guys from Andromeda: SpaceVenture), Jordan Weisman (Shadowrun), and Chris Avellone (Wasteland 2). One of the points they stressed was that every successful kickstarter project has depended upon “Super Fans” to help.

There could be no more loyal, wonderful, or Super fans than the people here on Quest for More Glory.

In particular Elsa, you have been a wonderful supporter over the years and we owe you a great debt for keeping this website and the spirit of QfG alive.

To repay part of this debt, we will make sure that any news we have about what we are doing will be announced on your forums quickly. Corey and I will have a more active role in posting on your forums and making sure you all know firsthand any exciting events.

I would also like to ask for the help from the fans to help spread the news and build the excitement for our Kickstarter campaign. We’re going to start a website that will be members-only for all the Super Fan people who help with our Kickstarter project. You, Elsa, will be one of the first members. You’ve certainly earned it.

I’m really excited by all the things that are going on right now. This is going to be fun.

Keep on Questing,

Lori

I don't know if I'm more excited for you or just for the fact that they're going to be on the forums here.

I certainly intend on being one of those super fans though! Oh, I'm so thrilled I could just SQUEE!

...but I won't because there are other people asleep in this house/neighborhood/zip code right now, and it would be rude to waken them with how excited I am. tongue.gif

I guess keeping this place alive has paid off. (can you tell my Paladin started off as a thief?)

It will be interesting to see what comes next. I've spent the last week playing through the QfG series to recreate my lost saved games/characters/point lists. I'll be starting QfG4 this afternoon. Some games are timeless.

Welp, that's it then, no point in putting it off, just tell me where to mail my wallet now.

Hey Elsa, congrats on the super fan thing. Put in a good word for me, eh? I'll give you first dibs on anything I "borrow" from now on.

It's been a Chaotic time in our lives since I last emailed Elsa about our plans for a new game. However, this week we made some serious decisions and commitments towards what we are going to do.

Since 2003, I've been running the School for Heroes. We closed the doors to the site last year for many reasons. However, the most important reason was that the School was intended to be a game but had turned into something else.

Still, we believe in heroes. We believe firmly in the power and influence that every person can have in the world when that person is willing to stand for his beliefs. We believe that learning is fun and that we learn best by doing things. We believe that games are powerful, meaningful experiences.

We believe that the new School for Heroes game will be fun, fresh, and exciting. It will have all the story-telling, quirky characters, humor, and excitement of the QfG series.

It's time for us to put those beliefs to the test.

We are going to create the School for Heroes game. It's an on-line Adventure RPG AND an interactive community.

We are pouring all our years of experience in playing games, writing games, and making games into this venture.

We can't do it alone. We need you. We need all of you to help us get this game off the ground.

We are planning a Kickstarter project for late October. There's a lot of work we need to do before we can get started.

Help us publicize our plans and energize our fans. We need to let everybody know that we are hard at work creating something that we hope they will love as much as QfG.

Be part of this project and help us make this dream into a reality. The world needs heroes, and so do we!
