Midkemia Online - Update

Today we received an email from Leigh Stillard, Producer of "Midkemia Online" for 'Iron Realms Entertainment'. 

Here for your information is an extract from that email:-

In terms of status here is a quick update on what we have done so far. We have completed building all the cities and kingdoms of the realm,(those that will be available at release - Admin), and made them functional for use by players once the game is released. We have crafting & gathering systems, our system for religion and roleplay events, and most of the area west of Krondor and north of the Bitter Sea built. Combat has been the main focus of the last 9 months, which is nearing a state where we are ready to go to alpha testing. We have a great deal more than the above in, but these are the most notable and the ones which required the most work.

Right now we're fleshing out the organizations that players will be a part of, an exciting trade system, continuing to polish and test the combat system, and various other preparations for alpha and beta. I can't give you a release date at this point unfortunately, but I should be able to at some point in the next couple of months.

Leigh Stillard,
Producer of "Midkemia Online"
for 'Iron Realms Entertainment'

Rounding up the Krondor books

Ray recently posted to the newsgroup in response to a question on the remaining Krondor Books

From: Raymond Feist
Date: 24 July 2007

There may be a non-traditional project that will cover that last set of story issues down the road, but I can say no more on that topic right now.

Best, R.E.F.

From: Raymond Feist
Date: 26 July 2007

It's not a graphic novel. By non-traditional I mean "not a novel," and only that.

Best, R.E.F.

Wrath of a Mad God Delay

Ray posted the following to alt.books.raymond-feist

From: Raymond Feist
Date: 20 June 2007

Almost certainly no. I suspect this is the first officially "blown" deadline I've had in 28 years. So expect it next April, about the same time as the US edition.

I've had vision issues since March, a function of age, and while things are beginning to improve (not back to "before" yet, but getting there), I can't hit the computer for those long rewrite sessions like I used to. I had a good day today, doing 34 pages of original and rewrite, but it's the first day over 20 pages since March. I'll turn it in about a week from now, but I fear we're too late to make production for the fall.

Best, R.E.F.

Midkemia Games

Ray posted to alt.books.raymond-feist

From: Raymond Feist
Date: 20 June 2007

Never get your hopes up on 4 year old press releases.

Iron Realm is producing a MUD, or so they say, and I have no idea when it's going to go public. I'm not deep into the game part of that deal. They optioned a graphic game right, but those rights reverted very quickly as they couldn't get the money people on line.

Best, R.E.F.

From HarperCollins Publishers 18 May 2007

HarperCollins are delighted to announce the acquisition of world rights in six new epic fantasy novels by international bestselling author Raymond E. Feist. Publishing Director Jane Johnson concluded the multi-million dollar deal with Abner Stein which will see HarperCollins publishing Feist globally throughout its sister companies and controlling his foreign language sales, which will be co-ordinated by Rights Director LucyVanderbilt working with Senior Rights Manager Airlie Lawson and Rights Executive Rachel Clements, as well as entering into the digital market with at least one exclusive project.

Johnson says, 'Raymond Feist is one of the true greats of modern fantasy. MAGICIAN was chosen by the public as part of the BBC TV The Big Read, and I am thrilled that Ray will be continuing his 22-year association with us, since we have published him from the very start of his career. This new deal represents a true partnership between author and publisher and we all expect great things from it. It's a very exciting move.'

Feist says, "I'm delighted to sign this new contract with HarperCollins. I have nothing but respect for the entire team and the continued support, belief, and enthusiasm they have collectively shown for my work. It is that belief and enthusiasm that made it vital for me to continue this relationship and endeavour to build on past success."

Clarification of Raymond E. Feists Official Website

Following a question on the Feistfans-L mailing list regarding the status of 'www.raymondfeistbooks.com'

Ray clarified:-

That's HC's "official author's site," and they have one for each of their top sellers.  In theory, each publisher could do thus. However, it's not MY official website.

Best, R.E.F.

Edited by Admin
Admin Note: As you all who come to Crydee know, Crydee is Ray's official website.

Some News - Future Books

Raymond E. Feist posted the following announcement today to the Feistfans-l Mailing list

Just to let you know, this morning I agreed in principle to a new contract with HarperCollins (Harper/Voyager in the UK; Avon/Eos in  the US) for six more books, plus a special project to be discussed.

This will end the Riftwar Cycle.  Two books in the Demonwar Saga and three books in the Chaoswar Saga.  The sixth book will most likely be the first in a new series set in an entirely new environment.

The special project will in one fashion or another wrap up the Krondor series, but at this point exactly what will be done and how we're doing it hasn't been decided.

In any event, this means I'm going to be writing a little longer and you're going to have to put up with me for a few more years.

Best, R.E.F.
