be expecting for implementations of Autoquest, Mob Factions, and the
Dungeon Master? - Majromax
Autoquest programming is completed. We are now in the stage where we

now. We would like to get to 1000 before we open the module to the
we need are more people applying to be an AWA, and for these people to
more quests and do it quicker. I have no firm predictions as to when

July-August of 2001 I will be working full time on Medievia. If you

What kind of incentives will players have to go out and fight the Mob

dragonhide/(DH) that we got with dragon lairs? - Majromax
The incentive will be for fun mostly. There will be a MF MLR

important zones or areas of the wilderness. By the end of 2001 most

Any plans to reimplement processing of the idealist sometime soon? -
The idealist is always perused for obviously needed changes. It is a

for Medievia to be what people want.
Are we ever gonna have Kingdoms again? - Llanant
MF controlled Kingdoms will be a large part of the game.
There are many objects that can be made better in Med or can be
certain places. Is it possible to have a place to change alignment of
objects? I am asking this because it seems that a lot of the better

There are new zones and new objects being put in all the time and there

Why is it that only Shockwave works better underwater? Shouldn't spells
lightning work better underwater and fire spells work better on mobs in
cold? - Mykalia
We argue about stuff like this all of the time behind the scenes. If
any brilliant ideas, email them to me.
Why do you keep on with Medievia, and have you ever thought about
giving up on
the entire project? - Ozirius

Have I ever thought that we would not become the best damn game in the

some interested investors now but I do not have the time to create our
business plan and get a three-year audit done, both of which would be
needed before we take on investors.
If you love this game, if you play the game all of the time, please
Please tell your friends about Medievia. All we need now is the ability
have a full time programming staff. We have the plan to develop
into the best game in the world. We just need the resources to do it.
Long live Medievia!
