Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen Announcement & Kickstarter

Visionary Realms officially announces Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen, the MMORPG recently revealed to be the upcoming project from Brad McQuaid (EverQuest, Vanguard) with other MMO developers from games such as original EverQuest "and just about every expansion, the original EverQuest 2 "and just about every expansion," Vanguard: Saga of Heroes, EverQuest Next, Free Realms, Star Wars: Galaxies, Star Trek: Hidden Evil, Myst 3: Exile, and more. The game's promised Kickstarter is underway, seeking $800,000 and showing stretch goals all the way up to $6.7 million, and offering details on the game, including a video Q&A where Brad answers a bunch of questions about the project, all of which seem to have been submitted by himself. The Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen website is also online. Here's a bit on what they have planned:

Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen is a group-focused MMORPG based on challenging gameplay and open world high fantasy. It takes place on a world populated by deities and heroes, called Terminus. Mortal and planar shards which have collided create the dramatic and epic environment of Terminus. With some of those shards came deities and demigods that, over time, raised empires which forged the turbulent political landscape. Centuries later, new planar collisions have occurred that will pull the players into the world and its politics. The player is a legendary hero, stripped of his or her powerful relics and left to explore the dramatically diverse and epic regions of Terminus with hopes of reclaiming their relics and those of lost heroes.

Pantheonís combat places a focus on preparation and awareness of the enemy. The player can actively dodge, block, or deflect attacks. Spell and ability pre-selection is critical to defeat encounters, as is forging alliances with other players. You won't want to be caught in the wilds of Terminus alone, but exploration of the vast and dramatically diverse world landscapes will be richly rewarding. Through exploration the player can uncover mysteries and unique adventures as well as acquire rare and exotic spells and abilities from dungeons and challenging encounters.

Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen is an intensely social game for the determined thrill-seeker, because we believe that the greatest sense of accomplishment comes when it is shared. Imagine a vast, detailed world of swords and sorcery, of dragons and knights, of fiery swords and chests overflowing with treasure. A world in which a myriad of sentient races and creatures live and affect change.
