We are striving to create a new paradigm of multi-player RPGs – this will be the epic fantasy experience that players have been waiting 15 years to play!

Richard “Lord British” Garriott

Needing no introduction to most RPG and MMORPG fans, he is arguably one of the most influential game developers in both the online and offline RPG world. He has been publishing games since 1980 (Akalabeth), and created both the Ultima Series and Ultima Online, the first large scale MMO. Richard believes that with Shroud of the Avatar, we can now create a new paradigm of multi-player RPGs!

Starr “Darkstarr” Long

Starr started his career with Richard Garriott at the legendary studio Origin Systems, where he was the Director of Ultima Online, the longest running MMO in history. In 2010, UO was inducted into the Online Game  Developers Conference Hall of Fame, the first MMO to be so honored. In 2008 Starr was named one of the Top 20 Most Influential People in the Massively Multiplayer Online Industry.

“The simple fact is that we’ve reached an era when it is a breath of fresh air to see a developer return to the roots of what an MMORPG could – and perhaps, should – be.”
– Reuben “Sardu” Waters, Ten Ton Hammer

“How we love watching Starr Long, Richard Garriott, and crew keep at breakneck pace to make one of the most feature rich sandbox RPGs in ages.”
– William Murphy, MMORPG

“From the creator of the old Ultima games, Richard Garriott, Avatar is a crowdfunded RPG that promises to bring back some of what made those games great.”
– Erik Kain, Forbes
