      Just got around to watching this and was amazed. Would be great to see some of the other companions in real life and brought into the new game.

      Does anyone know if there's a Stones version available on iTunes? Or if there's an MP3 version somewhere?

      That was awesome! That said, I think with today's tech, Richard Garriot should be implementing Iolo's original duck idea. I mean, it's the very least you can do for Iolo!

      I'm all for a "Iolo soundtrack" contribution stretch goal!!!

      I am confused from the latest video. He was explaining the sale model saying the game will be a digital download which is the trial version. You then purchased the game to unlock it? Was he talking about how they will sell after kickstarter, when the game is complete or are we only getting a trial version with our pledges?

      Iolo playing the lute captures the feeling that Richard has infused in his games.... This is truly great. Everyone should have an Iolo in their life. I'm jealous!

      If I wasn't already sold, the idea of having master Iolo on board in any capacity would bring me running.

      I was so upset when Lord Blackthorn killed Iolo when your party was caught! Great to see him in real life, even cooler to see that he really makes crossbows

      Great ! This is what Lord British is all about.

      Who cares about the video game, I want more Lute and X-bows. I would love to have an authentic-looking wooden crossbow that actually works. I may have to start saving up for one...

      Oh no! They're not going to eat that duck are they?

    18. Igor Kurtes on

      nice video :) thx much.

    19. Paul Carr on

      Wait... I hadn't thought about that... The old companions could appear in the game, couldn't they?

    20. Stiler Orion on

      Hearing him play the Stones theme brought back some great memories of UO, among others in this great interview/discussion.

      Omg. The real faces behind the characters of my childhood. This is flipping amazing, Iolo was my favorite!
