    I think Meteor Shower is blocked by armor so it would be.

    THANK YOU, Chris, for this important information - AND that you still care about the missing boxes :)

    THANK YOU, Chris, that you also take care about this!
    I think a lot of people really appreciate that (just a friendly quick note to tell us: "I'll take care of your concerns ...")

    That's a good sign for a new beginning ... :)

    If I had to make a very unsubstantiated guess, it lets Port declare bankruptcy to get out of the 'publishing' contracts with Black Sun and Travian.

    I hope so, but I would like to see an official word on that. I would also like to see some reporting. I have not heard one word on the company as an investor and I just find that odd.

    They got out of both of those in the past year, or Travian and Black Sun got out of them - no one knows who broke up with who, just that those break ups already happened. But it could be to take care of some other outstanding obligations still out there.

    So you used an already used name for your "company" with prior knowledge that you are not the real Catnip Games?? What about the team at Catnip Studios, featuring Dr.Cat - one of the most important names in Ultima history? Why choose a name that isn't unique at all?

    LOL they "just" made Bomberman for XBox, in Europe. It's far away so NBD.

    Convention attendee and the last 5 VIP tickets can still be secured by contacting me on a PM here on the forums.
    The attendees that are already here at the hotel are in a high state of anticipation for the convention to kick off tomorrow.

    Don't miss this one folks...
    BIG CHANGES, BIG EXPECTATIONS!

    I thought those deals were already done by mutual agreement... but it is possibly a route past lawsuits from Tracy Hickman's Publisher over the "book deal". At this point, it is all speculation.

    Whether I'm raging or not, I wish you the best.

    LUA support + player NPC dialog could be a real slam dunk.

    Here is a message from a banned player who still obviously cares:

    I think this is the best thing that could have happened for the game and its players. However, if Chris has effectively been running things for some time anyway, I'm not sure how much will actually change. Maybe this will open up the game to a fresh infusion of funds from an outside investor.

    I was going to respond to your first msg but it was deleted. I am just guessing here and have no real knowledge but I think darkstarr already has another gig going and he is just here for the peaceful hand off and I appreciate that. Godspeed DS
