Darkfall: Interview with Newborn on Agon

Our very own highlighted blogger Paragus1, who maintains the "Paragus Rants" blog here at MMORPG.com has posted an interesting interview with the leadership of Newborn on Agon, or NEW, which is a guild in Darkfall that helps new players get their bearings in the often harsh world of Agon.

On the formation, and purpose of NEW:

1) Tell us a bit about the purpose of NEW. Why was it started and are there any restrictions to joining up?

Fury Mortis – Newborn on Agon [NEW] is a clan on the North American server that was formed to aid the new player experience. With its harsh environment, quirky UI and steep learning curve, Darkfall can be a real challenge for beginners. Every time we lose a new player it puts more pressure on Aventurine to "Trammel the game up" to increase its appeal to the masses.

NEW was started as a joint effort, and officially kicked off when Elder Saurcon (Lords of the Dead) purchased an account and created the “New SupremeGeneral” character. With the support of Black Shields, Grief, Apollo, Imperil, Dominion, and too many other clans to list, NEW acquired Hammerdale at a very low cost. When the sticky post went up on the NA-1 forums and people could see that this was an honest effort, donations quickly poured in from across the community.

The only restrictions to joining up are that you are a relatively new player and that you agree to the rules on the website.

The timing of the interview is fitting as well, as Aventurine has just launched their seven day trial and recently implemented their Newbie Protection feature.

    That reverence made me grin.
