April 5 April 12, at 2 PM server time (CDT), in Omphalos Park on M*U*S*H (mush.pennmush.org 4201), Tyr will announce and discuss the game he's been working on, tentatively titled 'The Empire MUSH.' Set in 11th-century Thuringia, Germany, the game is an attempt at marrying history and fantasy in a work of interactive fiction.
Topics covered will include the reasoning behind the setting and theme, some information on the setting itself (a broad overview), and a postmortem on the course of development so far. The presentation is expected to last about 90 minutes; 30 minutes for the presentation itself, and 60 for discussion afterward. This may be longer or shorter depending on audience participation and interest.
This presentation is part of the M*U*S*H Architect-in-Residence program.
