Title: Hey, is this still alive? 'cause its awesome.
Post by: Jbetty on July 09, 2007, 05:08:09 PM
Hey, newbie here, and I just played through SoA with Keto in my party for the first time.  I'm obviously blown away by this awesome mod, but I was just wondering if folks're still working on the ToB content.  I'm very sorry if this gets asked all the time, I'm just having trouble finding recent news about Keto.

Jcompton and the others are busy working on The Broken Hourglass at Planewalker (http://www.planewalkergames.com). Keto and the other mods still in development are on hold until that one is taken care of.

Hello, I just wanna say that I LOVE Keto ;D I played several other npcs, and they all have their downside that annoyed me - too strong, too boring, too stupid.. ^^ but I just enjoyed playing Keto! *pine*

I'll definitely start a new game when there's ToB content for Keto.  ;)

I think it's taking too long. I call this a dead mod.

I'm sure it's not dead.  The delay is because of that blankety-blank ( ;D) Broken Hourglass thing.  Work has resumed on Nalia so I'm sure work will resume on this once JC is freed up a bit.

The problem is simple.

jcompton and his crew can either code for the masses as a hobby.

Or build a new RPG from scratch that will actually put money in their pockets.

I know which choice I would make.

That's an awfully cynical thing to say, MajorTomSawyer.

Not that I'm criticizing you.

I guess some feel that an update would be nice coming from the actual author and crew every so often.  Hobby or not it would be a shame for this to die.  Keto is really cool.

I don't know exactly what I can tell you guys. Bons, Blue, and I are all extremely busy with other things. We're not deliberately holding out on you, it's simply that we don't have the material, and no really clear idea when we would be able to work together or separately to create it. As MTS aptly points out, whenever possible I try to decide to work on TBH rather than mods, because TBH costs me a lot of money and it would at least be nice to be done losing money on it.

Cynical?

They're making a brand new game and choose that over modding--since one person can do only so much and they have to choose.

Seems to me to be the logical/reasonable/best choice they could make.

Yes--Keto's cool.

But--they're building a whole world right now.
