    So what I'm hearing is that our "friends" from Xoriat will be "improving" this year's Stormreach equivalent of MasterChef.

    Hey, Lynn, can't you just write the producer letter for them?

    We've said this before, but it's worth reiterating that the actual writing of the producer's letter is typically the easiest and shortest part of the process. We are close to being able to publish it, though! Still targeting the week of the anniversary.

    As Cordovan says, the shortest part is writing it. Plus, I'm pretty deep in [REDACTED], which has to be done before I can even start thinking about making [REDACTED].

    Oh, Lynn, as Malicia would say, "you are so delightfully naughty!"

    Happy Valentine's Day you tease.
    You can run level cap quests for epic xp, but you can't run non-level cap quests for RXP when you're capped.

    Well since we have a few weeks and this topic is going to be a place for comedy....

    TOP 10 REASONS THE PRODUCER'S LETTER HAS NOT BEEN RELEASED

    #10. Every day the plans change, so their is no point in writing anything until the day of the letter
    #9. Letter. Who reads these days?
    #8. Some angry mob grabbed the letter, and due to borked agro, it may never be seen again
    #7. Too busy working on the next Monk nerf
    #6. Too busy working on the next Warlock nerf
    #5. We are not sure who to nerf next
    #4. Sorry, was looking at cat memes. What were we talking about?
    #3. It's Valentines Day and there are better things to do
    #2. Lynnabel has taken over SSG and we no longer have a producer
    #1. It keeps getting lost during the TR process
    It's much easier to demonize those providing feedback (whining, childish, bringing the forums down, etc) or minimize their voice (small number, vocal, etc) than to accept the fact that the agro/stealth system just missed the mark.

    To answer the OP's question, since they started talking about it in December about 2 words per day unless it's really short this year.

    While you're on the 3 year design process, might as well have a random host chef:

    Alton Brownie? or Alton Brown Bear?
    Rick Baylor
    Masaharu Manticoro
    Rakshasha Ray
    Jamie Owlbear
    Wolfgnoll Puck
    Bobby Mindflayer
    Nigella Lamia
    Jacques Phasm
    Ina Garten*
    Guy Efreeti
    Elemental Lagasse
    Julia Child of a Tarrasque

    We asked Ina which monster she'd like to be and she asked why we need monster and she put a hat *backwards* on Jeffrey and said "he is your monster"

    This list should kill 1 year of development time right? Down to just 2 years to get it in?

    This is why I suggested in an earlier thread that SSG adhere to a firm annual date for the Producer's Letter. If Severlin released the Producer's Letter on January 30th every year without fail, this step would prevent all of the histrionics that surround its exact publication date every winter season. A January 30th release date would allow enough space for future plans to coalesce, the letter itself to be written, and then the letter to be circulated for approval while at the same time accounting for staff being mostly unavailable during the last few weeks of December.

    Should make it a forum contest. We all submit "producer's letters" and people vote on the ones they like best (and then they're officially ignored).

    That should have been in my top 10!

    At this point the letter better be pretty special.
    Damn you folks really get worked up over a public statement. It's not a declaration of war or the cure to cancer folks.

    Maybe it is. We won't know till we read it.

    I wonder who SSG would declare war on? Poland is a sound historical choice, but is a bit hackneyed. Xoriat? EA or Blizzard?
