After almost four months of listing Ray's next book as At the Gates of Chaos, HarperCollins UK have finally brought their title inline with the US, and it has been changed on ther website to At the Gates of Darkness. The cover shown though, is still the old one, so we will have to wait to see what the 'real' cover for the next book will be like.

Is this a Blooper?

Following on for our previous post on the next book from HarperCollins UK, we are wondering if this is what is commonly known as a Blooper. When the book details went live, on their website sometime in May? your webmaster phoned them to say they may have the title wrong, seeing as it changed back in March 2009. A few days ago, the cover went live, again what your webmaster believes is the wrong title, so another phonecall, nice lady responded, and informed it would be passed to the appropriate people. So for now we will sit and wait to see what happens. Will the title be At the Gates of Darkness, as everyone on the Feistfans-l mailing list  knows, as this is what Ray told us in March, or will it be the older title of At the Gates of Chaos as shown on the cover below. Your guess is as good as ours, so watch this space, as soon as we know you will.

Crydee's Dragon goes Gold

For over 2 years now, since Crydee was given its major facelift, you have seen a sketch of a small dragon at the bottom of the page, which was commisioned by us and created by Laszlo Vida, who also created  sixteen of the older covers for the hungarian releases of books by Raymond E. Feist. Now we are proud to present to you the Dragon in full colour, and all its glory.

At the Gates of... UK

Harper Collins UK, have put the cover for the next book up.

We have not included it here at present as they still have the title as At the Gates of Chaos. We hope to have more information shortly to clarify what the UK title will be, theough our understanding is it should be At the Gates of Darkness, as anounced back in March of this year.

This could lead to a new addition to the Bloopers section.

Midkemia Online June UPDATE

We received the following update today from JT O'Loughlin, Lead producer Midkemia Online.

Lately we've been working on finishing up Rogues, and coding Magicians.

Rogues:

Rogues are coming along nicely, and getting near to being completed. I'm really pleased with how they're turning out in terms of spying, stealth and infiltration abilities. One of the cool things about Rogues is the ability to construct bombs! There are different types of bombs Rogues can construct (smoke bombs, Quegan fire oil bombs, etc.), and they can be used in 3 different ways: to throw directly at an enemy, to throw at your room for a room-wide effect, or to throw into an adjacent room for a room-wide effect. Rogues can also hide themselves from sight, making them difficult to detect or hit, and launch sneak attacks for massive damage if they are unseen, before launching into a barrage of fencing attacks with their rapier. And, of course, Rogues are able to eavesdrop on nearby conversations or even spy on private communications between other players, making them masters of espionage.

Magicians:

Ok, so a few things about Magicians that may have changed from the original plans: when we release, our Magicians will be Greater Path Magicians!

They are a classic glass cannon archetype, with their most powerful spells only able to be cast at a range, such as hurling giant balls of the blue fire the Tsurani Great Ones use in battle. Of course, one of a Magician's signature spells is the ability to create Rifts -- which are the only "teleportation" or long-distance transport ability in the game (in fitting with Midkemia's theme of low magic). Unlike most teleportation skills in other games, however, enemies (and allies) can follow you through an open Rift, so it's not a perfect escape method. Beyond manipulating magic, Magicians also create a variety of useful enchantments that are usable by anyone. Lesser Path Magicians are more skilled than their Greater Path cousins at creating enchanted objects, however.

So where does that leave Lesser Path?

We are still planning on having Lesser Path Magicians, but they will be released after beta. Why the change? Three reasons. First, there was just more interest in people playing Greater Path Magicians, since they feature more prominently in the series. Second, we had a firmer design in place for Greater Path. And third, Lesser Path Magicians make extensive use of the elements (such as weather) around them, and I wasn't convinced that we could have a really interesting Lesser Path without a completed (and easy to manipulate) weather system. In the future, you can expect that Lesser Path will be less flashy and flamboyant than Greater Path, but arguably more powerful in a meta-sense. Whereas a Greater Path might throw fireballs at an enemy, a Lesser Path might manipulate the weather to make it colder or rainy (and thus cause those fireballs to fizzle out and do significantly
less damage), or create a violent storm with lightning and hurricane winds spread over a wide area.
