Today’s In Plain English covers the very short lawsuit between Starfall Education Foundation and Trion Worlds regarding the Rift expansion Starfall Prophecy. You may be aware that Trion Worlds recently changed the name of the expansion to the Prophecy of Ahnket and wanted to know why.

The studio said that there will be 103 nodes at launch, with each able to transform from plain wilderness into settlements as basic as a camp or as elaborate as a metropolis. There are four types of modes (economic, military, scientific, and divine) that each offer specilized services and NPCs. Gradually, evolved nodes will establish parent-vassal relationships … [Read more...] about Ashes of Creation goes back to basics with node education
