Just became a $250 Amber Patron of this Kickstarter. Its basically a "modern" Shadowbane, with some pretty interesting devs behind the scenes. They have some interesting solutions to the game becoming stagnant after a super power emerges. It basically has short-term "worlds" which dissolve at the end of a period of time (2-3 months? though they plan on changing/adjusting over time), each with their own rules. Some worlds might have full loot, others might only have percentages of your items drop to opposing players.

They are planning on having full friendly fire, though they have not explicitly said if their any exceptions to this yet (party excluded ala DAoC). The initial videos indicate lots of telegraph usage like Wildstar, but they said those might entirely disappear.

All in all, it looks like a really fun take on PVP and a small movement forward for the full pvp mmo subgenre.

On a side note; I started a guild specifically for the game, called Obsidian, which you can check out and join if you plan on playing and want to join me. Check it out at
