This is the Gold Premiere Club Q&A from last March (not the one from May that Raleirosen posted recently). I noticed no one posted the March one on here, and apparently they have deleted it off the Gold Club Forums. Luckily I made a copy for reference.

Any chances on releasing Rite of Passage this year?

Mod Kelpie: Very slim.

Mod Raven:
I spoke with a few players about the core, most important, aspects of Rite of Passage. I.e the bit that the quest absolutely 100% needed in order for us to do it. Unfortunately this core component was Abbinah itself. This means that for us to do Rite of Passage to the standard necessary it would likely need to be an expansion in and of itself. So "Rite of Passage" is not likely for this year. However, expect to see a little more aviansie lore and content make its way into the game. I'd say more, but that would be spoilers.

Could we expect a comeback of voiceover quests any time soon? I really miss them.

Mod Kelpie:
Very unlikely. We agree that they are great, but the extra cost and time doesn't make them very worthwhile addition unfortunately.

Will there be any more World Events? If so what will they be focused around?

Mod Moltare:
We're not planning an official World Event any time soon, but some of the lessons of WE1/WE2 can be applied to future content - I'd personally love to see something like the WE2 caravans be a permanent addition to the game world.

Can you give us any hints on quests we don't know about this year.

Mod Osborne:
There are more quests that you don't know about than quests you do. That's how we're approaching expansions: surprising you from a quest perspective.

Are there any other gods like Tuska that are heading towards Gilenor and want to destroy it ? Secondary Question - How many Gods / Goddess are there in Glienor and will any new ones be introduced ?


Mod Osborne:
The Queen of Ashes seems like she has plans beyond group hugs and tupperware evenings.
There are very few gods alive beyond the ones you know. There will be plenty that died over the God Wars, and some may be on other worlds, but largely what you have is what you get.

Gameplay and lorewise, why are the Godless treated worse than Bandosians? Their leader's existence, Bein, is currently about as believable as the void knight's Valluta was before it was found, and the faction's presence in the godwars is a minor nuisance at best.

Mod Osborne:
Brutally put, but correct. The Godless are on their way and will be a force, but their time hasn't come yet.

Would different lines of Chthonians have had their own strains (need a better word, styles?) of material culture, tools, architecture tailored to their needs?

Mod Jack:
No. Chthonians actually had a very strong shared culture with highly developed language, arts and tendencies. There were probably subcultures within their society, but for the most part their wild physical differentiation wasn't reflected culturally.

Can Chthonians eat Mahjarrat?

Mod Jack:
Yes. Gods too.

Do you think there are any Chthonians left that we don't know of? What about infernal demons?

Mod Jack:
Yes. The named chthonian dukes are just the ones who followed Zaros to Gielinor. There were hundreds more, and although most of them would have been killed in the Avernic rebellion, a handful could have escaped into the Abyss.

Is there a chance for more content featuring Thok and Marmaros in the future - whether that be as past memories again, otherwise their present time selves? (I love these guys, and it feels like the story about their journey to floor 61 isn't finished yet).

Mod Osborne:
I know one planned quest that features Thok! We love them, and would dearly love to do more stories with them.

What is the reason we can't shove the dark shard of Seren into her skull to have her accept it post-TLW? If we could find it in the library trench, couldn't we find a way to fuse it to her?

Mod Raven:
Aside from being a horrific medical procedure, the process of fusing the shards with her includes the ritual that was conducted. Now that the ritual is over and she is whole again, the only way to reincorporate that shard would be if she willingly shattered herself again and you repeated the whole process. Seren does not seem willing to do that right now.

When will we getting the White Knight Acolyte Armour? I mean we helped defeat the Slug Queen one of the White Knights greatest foes. Surely it should be enough for Sir Tiffy Cashien to promote us to Acolyte?

Mod Osborne:
Wait, you killed Mother Mallum? I thought the pillar did it! That's why we promoted it to Acolyte Pillar.

Will we encounter any more new Gods in the coming year? Good or Bad?

Mod Osborne:
Depends on your definition of 'new'.

During the final moments of the quest we meet Jas, and I was wondering about her design in relation to the Stone itself. We are told she created it, but was it PART of her? Her design just screams that the stone was a literal part of her because it looks like she's covered in many Stones of Jas.

Mod Raven:
The Stone of Jas was her egg. So in some ways it's about as much a part of yourself as you can give up. With the design of Jas we wanted to reference the concept of Time, in her physical form. So we focused on features such as the constant rotation of her arms and the flowing sand (as in the sands of an hourglass). We also wanted to give her a decidedly alien appearance, to show how utterly removed from mortal life the elder gods are.

Is the Siphon in the hands of the World Guardian after Sliske's Endgame?
----- If so, is there any chance that we might get a staff override after completing Sliske's Endgame?

Mod Raven:
The Siphon is NOT in the hands of the World Guardian.

What was the process by which Nomad created the Soul Wars avatars? Was it in any way similar to how he created Gielinor?

Mod Raven:
Similar but not quite as horrific. Certainly Nomad learned from the creation of the Soul Wars avatars in order to create Gielinor. But they don't function on exactly the same principles. They're not quite as horrific.

If the world guardian managed to salvage a Stone of Jas fragment after Sliske's Endgame, do other gods/characters have some also?

Mod Raven:
It's possible, but probably unlikely. It would also only be one of the gods who was there at the end scene.

When will we learn more about Karamjan gods? Are they like the Camel God where they aren't actually gods but mortals who do cool stuff?

Mod Osborne: Oh, they are gods/it is a god. Trust me.


If the penguins were supporting a god, which god would that be?

Mod Raven:
The penguins wouldn't worship a god, but they would support any (and all) deities that would push their agenda. They'd be absolutely mercenary in their support of course and would only support the god as long as they helped them achieve their goals of world domination. More likely than not they'd try to take control of a god so they could use their power more directly, so arguably they'd be more inclined to support Tuska (where she still alive) albeit once she was tamed. If there are other beastial gods out there, they might try to tame them instead.

So, the Wiki people said that Hazelmere's ring is unrelated to him, even tho Timbo says it is lorewise, so someone should edit his wiki page, bc if I do it, they're just gonna yell at me.
