Let's talk about Runemaster - live this Thursday at 15:15cest

  • Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.


    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.

This Thursday, at 15:15cest

Last January we announced Paradox Development Studio latest game; Runemaster. Now, several months down the line it's time to sit down with the team to discuss how development is going and what the guys & girls from the team feel the game should look and feel like. You'll be able to catch a broadcast on our Twitch channel this Thursday.

Where, When, How
This Thursday, 15:15cest at http://www.twitch.tv/paradoxinteractive
We'll be uploading it all to YouTube afterwards, if you want to have an idea of what that would look like we did a similar thing for Hearts of Iron 4 last week; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hwFvVM_zZxQ

I am one of the "guys" who will discuss Runemaster during the "Let's Talk..." and I just thought I would do a quick introduction.

Hello, I'm Sara and I'm a gamer (This is your que to say: "Hi Sara"). I've been gaming since I was four years old, started with a black-and-white MacIntosh. Loderunner was my first game and it holds a special place in my heart. I grew up in Karlstad, played as many games as I could get my hands on (especially RPGs. I loved Might & Magic 8), and have always loved reading, skiing and floorball, apart from games.

When I was 18, going on 19, I went to a small city called Skövde to study Computer Games Development - Design at the university there. Graduated in 2009 with a B.A in Media and after a few futile efforts to support myself as a telemarketer I saw Johan posting in the Facebook group "Spelutvecklarambulansen" (The Game Development Ambulance) that they were looking for a Scripter. I never ever thought I would get the job, but I applied, got an interview and then, a week or so later, a phone call from Johan asking me if I could start in January 2010. Since then, I've been working on several games for PDS, the first one being Victoria II and now I'm Senior Lore Developer on Runemaster. You might have noticed me posting dev diaries and answering questions on this forum.

As a Senior Lore Developer, I have full responsibility for the Game Writers, our quests, the story and lore of Runemaster and our Scripter. I read and approve the quests the Game Writers write, I make sure the Scripter does his work, scripting quests and everything else needed. Most of my days I either read quests, participate in meetings and/or try to script some quest of my own, when I have the time. I have done a lot of research and the database I set up for Runemaster is pretty massive, just ask my Game Writers :p

So tomorrow at 15:15 Cest I will participate in the stream (link here: http://www.twitch.tv/paradoxinteractive) together with Boel, who you know as Regina on this forum.

I have to give you credit for your persistance when it comes to your crusade against elves..

By solemn vow I cannot rest until every last elf is dead.

EDIT: I'd still like an elf kill counter in game. I could also be satisfied with a kill counter that kept track of each individual race, but mostly I just want to know how many elves I kill in a play through. Worst case, I suppose I'll just have to make a thread here after release to keep count.

Hey everyone!

Most of you already know who I am, I hope!
But hey, maybe a surprise that I´m working as a game writer on Runemaster? :)

You might know that I have been at Paradox ever since EU:Rome, and I have mostly worked with PR & marketing for every single PDS-game since that. Writing has always been my passion and hobby, and I´m crazy about science fiction, fantasy and horror in games, books and movies. To be fair, Johan and Fred did say I was the paranormal magnet at Paradox.
Video proof: http://youtu.be/CwfjMm3vaJo?t=10m7s

When not working on the PDS games, I´m a member of the Swedish writers collective Fear, which blogs and writes short stories in the genres sf, fantasy and horror. So last year, my debut novel got published, a dystopian novel named The new childrenhttp://boelbermann.se/about-the-new-children.
And I´m still not sure how it happened, maybe thanks to your help actually? But I suddenly found myself working as a game writer for our RPG Runemaster, which is pretty magical. That means I have the amazing task to create characters and quests and I hope to be able to challenge you all and give you choices enough to really create your own story in the game.
My work includes delving deep in Norse Mythology, which usually ends in battling Odin, questioning the Norns and picking fights with creatures larger than life...

Background check: Before PDS, I worked as an entertainment editor, game reviewer and columnist at newspapers and magazines all around Sweden. I have previously studied journalism, criminology, social science, and social anthropology – which of course led me to PDS, where else could I end up?
I think the strangest part is that being a game writer and being an author is so extremely separate in my mind. I go to work and delve deep in Norse mythology and write about gods, trolls and dragons. Then I come home and keep writing – but then I write science fiction in Swedish and explore the future. I think I separate the two by writing in different languages and different genres, so one can be my work and one is my creative hobby!

Any questions, bring it on :)

What is your opinion on elves?

Ha, to be honest, I've always had a hard time with elves.
They tend to be a bit too stuck up and besserwisser for my taste, but I hope the elves of Runemaster might change our view on elves a bit ;)

I´m currently writing focused on Midgard and humans, so that's where my heart is at the moment!

:p Torrulf is still a work in progress, but of course he will be the coolest character!
But right now, I´m horribly fond of Máni (The moon), who suffers from insomnia and talks about himself in 3rd person.

Will SKadi be in the game? :D I really like her.

If you can get Tom Hiddleston to even just do a soundblurb as marketing for the game, you've got my girlfriend buying 10 copies for sure... any chances on this? :D

Can't you just tell her that it's a game about Loki and that she can choose to fight for him?
Shouldn't that do the trick? :)
