Update #9

Tracy Hickman, New York Times Best-selling author of Dragonlance and Deathgate series, joins the Shroud of the Avatar team as Lead Story Designer!

Two Legends of Gaming join forces! International and New York Times Best-selling fantasy author Tracy Hickman is pleased to announce that he is joining Richard Garriott’s team as Lead Story Designer for ‘Shroud of the Avatar.’

“There is a tremendous opportunity to create something meaningful, challenging and wondrous in Shroud of the Avatar,” Tracy said. “I’m thrilled to play a part in it.”

"Tracy is not only a good friend, but also a master storycrafter whose writing I've greatly admired for over twenty years," says Richard Garriott. "Tracy’s talent will add a unique richness and depth to Shroud of the Avatar."

Tracy is known world-wide for creating the incredible worlds and stories of Dragonlance, the Deathgate Cycle, the Annals of Drakis and ‘Wayne of Gotham’. He, with his wife Laura, pioneered the use and integration of story into role playing games. He currently has over fifty books in print and is also a pioneer in the New Media publishing world of e-books and online serial publishing.

“Join us,” entices Tracy. “We’re taking adventure to a whole new realm.”

      I wholeheartedly disagree with you about fantasy being pitiful since the 80s, David. Terry and his partner Margaret are an inspiration in the world of fantasy writing and I am sure his numerous talents and extensive knowledge will be of great benefit to SoTA. It is rude to try and judge a man with such limited knowledge of his work.

      That being said, welcome to the team Terry. I look forward to once again experiencing the rich character development, wealth of careful detail and intriguing fantasy worlds I have grown up with reading your and MW's novels.

      Being as respectful as I can (really) while still expressing my reaction: I am sure I am not alone in not seeing the addition of Hickman to the team as an unalloyed good. In the "old school" tabletop RPG community, Hickman has a bad (IMO, deserved) reputation as a "railroad" scenario designer (Dragonlance modules, anyone?), the exact opposite of the "sandbox" approach stated to be the guiding principle with SotA. Granted, old D&D fogies like me who haven't purchased a CRPG since the 90s (when flash displaced substance as the reigning CRPG design philosophy), but have continued to play D&D and AD&D into the 21st century are probably not thrilled by this news. I've posted the kickstarter to a couple of OS PnP RPG forums in an effort to further the cause, with either negative or zero reaction. These are people who almost all played the early Ultimas, at least, and remember them fondly. They also remember playing "Dungeon Module DL1 - X", and the outrage they felt when their DM said, "Sorry, you can't do that, the module says the PCs have to end up at location X in order for the plot not to break." Not sandbox by any definition.

      Personally I have no worries about Hickman's actual influence on the game. I'm sure if LB sees things going in the wrong direction, there will be adjustments and admonishments. And I have a lot of faith that LB knows which direction is right. Just a little concerned that the decision was made to include TH in the first place--a little puzzling, since to me he represents the opposite of the design philosophy I associate with the Ultimas.

      In the interest of full disclosure, I have not read any of Hickman's solo work, and only the first three DL novels, which were a step above the usual RPG tie-in novels, but hardly great literature (even by fantasy standards, which have been pitiably low since the early 80s).

      the Dragonlance books were one of my favorite books growing up, the story was so compelling! I think along with the Chronicles of Amber, they are one of the best crafted, character driven fantasy stories out there. I'm happy to hear that Tracy will be on board as lead story designer, I think this bodes very well for the game, a very important part of the game that was here-to-for not covered, is now, I feel, in expert hands! I can't wait to see what else is in store for Shroud :D

      The only thing better is if both Hickman and Weis are on the project. Hickman is good, but Weis makes him a much better story teller by adding more gritty realism. Hickman makes the stories fun.

      One thing though, please let this be more Dragonlance, Death gate, and Ravenloft and (significantly) less Dragonships

      Creator PurpleXVI on March 15, 2013

      Oh wow, this is a terrible damn decision. Weis and Hickman may have their good points as authors, but those points are, in my experience, pretty much never either ending a story satisfactorily or writing something that isn't: "And then the good guys realized that very-poorly-disguised Jesus was the answer."

      Plus I guess this will be our 50th or something scramble of the name "Zifnab" popping in to rescue us and make the story work!

      And I really wanted this project to work out well, too.
