Sept BTS out, looks like we are getting the Dwarf quest.
I'm shocked they were able to roll it out this quick.
Either they had a # of developers on it, they shortcutted a few things and used a lot of existing in game stuff and simplified it (reference development of Devious Minds), or they had done a lot more work on the front end before they even released that poll selection.
Quests typically take 6+ months to do. IF the time line is what I think it is .. this took short of 5 for them to do.

Quest dev time seems a lot shorter now. The World Gate quest was estimated to be around 6 months total, which is tiny compared to the old yearish estimates. @Fannygirdle on Twitter | Co-Owner of The Scrying Pool, a future updates and lore clan

At the library, and got stuff all updated (I think)! Taking the computer to get fixed tomorrow, and nearly got my account issues sorted too ^_^


I believe there is another quest too about the sequel of Blood Runs Deep and Royal Trouble, as said in a chaos elemental hint in the Above the Lore podcast on the wiki.


Just as I thought this quest is be developed, turns out the Fremennik series was already finished since the last one, Blood Runs Deep.

We'll still see on what kind of job they did.

Then again, with them done with RS3 and EoC stuff, they have finally lightened up some of the backlogged groups, thus why quests are coming out faster.
Not just a ref to having developers and what not simply avail to do them, but not having a few certain groups jammed on tight scheds reworking the whole bloody game.

Not sure if you'd want to include it in the thread, but (estimated) release dates and quests for the rest of the year were released in Mod Marks podcast:

Mod Mark said he aimed on at least getting a quest a month, and they would (hopefully) be:

September- Birthright of the Dwarves
October- Missing, Presumed Death
November- (quest about divination)
December- ? small 6th age quest, possibly developed by Mod Raven?

Also, they want to make Elves their 200th quest, (possibly) as big as or bigger then RFD.

Under Mourning's End Part III, include that they're shooting to make it the 200th quest and maybe even that they've done some work looking into the technicalities of epicness for it. :P

I heard it in the most recent ATL, I believe.

Awesome topic, Congratulations on V2! :) I remember the first version fondly.
