    OMG, how could you hire *that* guy?  He's nuts!  Have you even heard some of his insane ideas?  :)

     

    In seriousness, I'm super excited about the opportunity to join the team and help make Pantheon an even greater success!

    Trying to decide if this counts as guild sniping or not.  Congrats Neph and VR.

     

    P.s. would rather work with Convo than Roenick 10/10

    Congratulations Nephele and VR. That's another important step for turning Terminus into the true world it's meant to become.

    I withdraw all the things I have said over the years agreeing with Nephele on crafting or other issues. He is now one of *them* not one of *us*. 

    Congratulations.

    Congratz Nephele, your hard work will start shaping the game instead of ideas :).

     

    I hope you will make me enjoy harvesting and crafting more than the chore it is in most MMO's nowadays.

    Congratulations Nephele And the VR team! 

     

    I'd like to make a quick suggestion of making master crafting a parishable skill.  If you have to use your crafting to keep the higher level skill, those who tire of the game or crafting can't just keep making things for themselves once they get to mastery. This would keep crafting as something that will always need to be used, which would be a sponge to item bloat in the economy and also give new crafters a shot at customers.  I'd be happy to explain the idea more if I'm not being clear enough.  And of course feel free to ignore me :)

    Thanks Gloth!  That is a really interesting idea!  I'll definitely be interested in seeing more of your feedback (along with everyone else's) as we get going with getting crafting and gathering into the game :)
