    I sure hope the current runes are transferred to Pox2. After all, the best part is the artwork, and it would be a shame to lose it all. Pox2 should just be a graphics update, with better maps and realistic conditions, such as random weather and natural disasters. Having random generating maps would be a plus as well. Then keep the current runes with their artwork, update the sprites, and update the statistics to match the Pox2 rules.

    If Pox2 does come out, most likely shutting down Pox1 would be coming soon after. There is just too much amazing artwork to lose it all. Maybe before it is shut down they can release a stand-alone version of Pox1, or just keep it going on Steam.

    SOE created Everquest (EQ) then later release EQ2 and they are both still running. There were plans to create another Everquest called Everquest Next, but it appears to have stalled as far as I can tell since they changed to Daybreak Games. But SOE burned me before by shutting down Pirates and Star Wars Galaxies along with their SWG CCG. I asked at the time if we could get some sort of compensation for other SOE titles, but it never happened. It was just money down the toilet. At least I could (and have) create a SWG EMU server. I have also created an EQ EMU server. But I think the Pirates data is gone for good, which is a shame.

    You can see why runes wouldn't transfer though, it makes perfect sense.

    If there was a shard type system, then some shard reward based on rune value in pox1 would a nice :) to the old timers.

    So was the new client the 'spin-off' or is there an actual spin off happening too?

    The spin off is Space Wars or Void Rim I think. Space Wars is the game they have been showing off at the conventions but there is little known about it. Void Rim was the sci-fi tactical game that was similar to pox but was shelved when they reaquired Pox.

    I believe people misunderstand what does a rewriten client means. It is fresh code, so you can expect weird glitches and hard to solve issues gone, but art and mechanics will be kept. All the hard work and money invested in PoxNora will not be wasted folks, that would be crazy...

    Spin off is completely different than anything that you would know about.

    Ha, you have livened the entire atmosphere with these vague references. Come on Sok, throw us a REAL bone! :p

    There's a lot up in the air with it right now, but it is a single player game set in the Pox Universe. That's all I can say.

    I’d be very interested to see what comes of this.

    Day in the life of a designer.

    If we had the old forums I’d be digging through those too. Always something to find, I didn’t always get a chance to take part in some of the current discussions but a lot of the comments are timeless in a sense.

    And BTW, I can pretty much tell you what happened with this and any other project DOG was working on...

    I didn’t realise that DOG was this big last I remember there were 5 programmers and poxzuo + outsourcing artist. That was when DOG bought over

    Dude, DOG is dead. Pox is dead. This thread was dead until @aseryen went and necro'd it. DOG is small and always was now they are extinct just like any projects they were working on.

    The people are still alive, though, or so I hope. Perhaps there is a way to revive Pox with just Moga and delete all the other useless races.

    Sokolov, you have to be the best flag bearer for any game in history. "Single Player"? I hope its a Rogue-like with fantastic graphics.....
