Re: Status Report

Sorry to put a damper on anyone's hopes, but here are some facts of the matter that should shed some light on the current status of KotB:
  • Ted hasn't been at Co8.org in about five months.
  • The last update from him was on May 22, 2011, when he promised "news soon."
  • Ted hasn't checked in privately with anyone that I'm aware of.
  • The KotB dev forum has not been active in over a year.
  • I'm not personally aware of anything being done with the project, nor am I aware that anyone is working on it.
  • According to Ted's wife's blog, Ted is happily living out a husband-and-father-of-three-small-children existence in Sydney. There is never any mention made of KotB or Co8 that I've seen.
To me, this means that until such time as Ted comes back here and formally says something to the contrary, you should all consider the project inactive. Sorry.

I would not normally presume to make any dev-level statements about KotB, but since the lights are basically out and no one's home, and since leaving things hanging as such makes Co8 look bad, I think this is the most prudent thing to do.

Re: Status Report

Well I for one am sad to hear this. I've been looking forward to this expansion, as Keep on the Borderlands was the first module I bought with the DnD Basic set about thirty years ago.

I realize that real life throws us issues that we don't like to deal with, and perhaps this is what happened with Ted? I only hope that he either posts here, or someone contacts him and gets from him an update or an explanation about the status or his abandonment of the project. If nothing else maybe he can release what he's made so far for others to follow up with.

I guess though that I will just have to be content with the demo. KotB brought back a lot of memories. I still hope that something can either be worked out or salvaged from what has happened so far.

Re: Status Report

I never played the original PnP campaign and only played an early release of the mod (pre-patch) as I didn't want to spoil the experience for the final product. My initial impressions were highly favourable and I'm also greatly dissapointed that this mod never came to fruition.

I can fully understand how real life can get in the way of one's hobbies as well as how priorities can change with the joys and challenges that an additional family member can place in one's life.

That being said, it is strange that he did a Houdini on us though. While he doesn't owe us an explanation, it would be nice all the same .

Hopefully this mod can be revived some how. Even just the Demo showed GREAT promise and was extremely fun to play with.

Glad to hear that he is well. It's a shame about the project but hopefully he will return one day. I did not play the entirity of the KotB demo, but what I did see was inspiring

Aw man. Bummer. TKotB sounded like something special. Was he working on this all by himself? From following flashgame developpers blogs I can imagine that it's hard to keep things going when ur all alone.

Re: Status Report

Ted was the man. I have to admit that I have only messed around in the demo to look at the new art and music because I wanted to wait until it was finished. I also put off reading the module five years ago so I wouldn't spoil the game. I guess I'll be waiting some more although. The writing, art, music, and new gameplay additions look excellent.

I fear Ted is being held hostage by small people with tear-away pants, (diapers) that are known to enslave and enthrall with a mere giggle.

May you rest in peace dear Ted.

Yes good one Sirchet!

hey I think I'll keep posting from time to time so if ever Ted passes by he'll see that the interest is still alive for his great project.

This took me out of gaming for about 5 years...eventually I made it back. Hopefully we'll see Ted's return or he'll pass the work on for others to move forward with. Great job so far!

I were also happy to see some life coming back to this unfinished project. Stoped some time ago to check this thread but since I saw your name in one of the temple threads I gave it another try. Will keep on looking what will happen here.
