38 Studios Assets & IP To Be Sold

The Turn to 10 Website has word that the receiver in the 38 Studios bankruptcy case plans on selling all the company's physical assets at auction, saying "Idealistically [sic] we're talking several months." He grants that it may take longer as he is furiously cramming to learn what he needs to about the value of the IP with the help of an unnamed former employee of the former developer, as the report states: "Land said he's learning more about video games and the value of computer software. He said he's even hired a former 38 Studios worker to help create the platform to possibly sell some of the intellectual property." Thanks Jim.

Actually, the IP behind the world itself is worth something. R.A. Salvatore and others spent a great deal of time creating an entire world and characters just for the game.

None of which were anywhere in Reckoning. Elves? Dwarves? FUCKING INSPIRED.

I was a big fan of Salvatore when he first started out with his Drow series, but he wasn't exactly original here as he just built stereotypical characters and story lines in the Forgotten Realms universe which was already established. He did a lot to grow that universe though.

A novel, TV show or movie written by R.A. Salvatore? Sure. You have my interest. An MMO where he designed the world and the characters? Wasn't that EQ? How could it possible be any different?

Today I learned R.A. Salvatore wrote the bot chat lines for Quake III. Thank you, Wikipedia.
