I could have sworn I left it right here. Carol is the prime suspect. She tried to sneak off with last week's Grab Bag, but was thwarted!

We're on to you Carol!

A Message from Grabford B. Bagsworth III

Ok Grab Bag, not cool. You missed our last date! We're starting to feel rejected here. People care about you, and want the pleasure of your company so stop being so elusive. I think you owe us an apology. On with it!

Q: Grab Bag, where have you been? 

A: Humble apologies my dear friends. I mean no offense, but sometimes it's difficult to make all of my appointments. I mean...I'm not sure if you know, but...I'm kind of a big deal. People know me...but this is no excuse! I look forward to making a more regular appearance to answer your questions and address your concerns.  

Yours with respect,
Sir Grabford B. Bagsworth III Esq.

The Next Chapter for Dark Age of Camelot

Posted by Talal Saad | 2014 Feb 05 01:58 -0500 GMT

Friends and realm-mates,
For more than twelve years Mythic Entertainment’s flagship game: Dark Age of Camelot™ has been remarkably successful. Since its launch in 2001, DAoC forever changed the MMO genre.
Inspiring thousands of gamers and game developers alike, it paved the way for a generation of MMOs to follow. Through the years, Camelot has also seen its share of rough times - but thanks to its many loyal fans and its wonderful and dedicated community, Dark Age of Camelot has proven to be a true survivor. In recent months, Mythic’s leadership began discussing the question of Camelot’s future. Councils were convened, options were discussed - and finally, a decision was made regarding the best possible future for Dark Age of Camelot.
