We’re long overdue for a good Camelot Unchained post! Mark Jacobs and his team have been publishing regular updates with everything from concept art of races and their origin stories to a very transparent rundown of their sprint cycles.
Knowing how crazy I am for the little races like Lurikeens, Gnomes, and Dwarves, Mark allowed me the opportunity to communicate to him some of my thoughts on the Luchorpan (or Leprechaun) race. I think I screamed MAKE THEM LURIKEEEEEEEEENS … and he said no. We got the next best thing, though, after begging for big eyebrows and tons of ear hair.
You can find a rundown of some of the potential racial abilities here.
If you’re not familiar with the how the lore of Camelot Unchained is developing, you really should read some of the origin stories. The Veilstorms are bringing about what’s being called “The Change,” and all of the races are experiencing its effects. Be warned, some of the lore can be dark and twisted and is not suitable for younglings.
Lore and art are fantastic, especially the leprechaun variety, but what all of us desperately want are the nitty gritty details! That’s one of the tiny downsides to closely watching an MMO with transparent development. I see every little update like getting paperdolls to work, and suddenly I envision my Luchorpan shooting arrows at people from the treetops, leaping down onto unsuspecting prey and poking their eyes out with my long sharp fingers, then robbing them quite literally blind.
I’m going to have to temper my enthusiasm. We have a long ways to get yet! Meanwhile, I’m going to keep poking Mark until he gives us some goodies to share with you guys. Stay tuned!
