Congratulations, Erika! And kudos to RTG for making the obvious choice.

@Erika

 

I'm not going to ask you about secrets because it will be your hardest part of your job - answering questions from fans about super secrets without spoilers :P

While I can't say this for certain, I'm pretty sure RTG still keeps some secrets from her. Like story related stuff etc (which aren't really needed in order to do the job she'll be doing) :)

That said, she'll surely know a bit more than us, but probably not on "who's this character, really?" type of things ;)

I mean small things like a release date for Book Three.

I'm counting on getting Erika to spill out the last 20 minutes of conversation in 'The Longest Journey Home'. I'm just biding my time :wonk:

Saga: "Yeah, but maybe I shouldn't have married the daughter of that Azadi and the Zhid"

 

Trust me, I still have that email access. :)

Yeah, that's the kind of thing it makes sense she'll know more about :) But that's also the kind of thing "standard answers" ("RTG will announce appx x days before") are for ;) so that's the kind of secrets that are easier to keep. It's harder when you've gotten information that relates to the story, because then you either have to stay away from speculating in threads, or try to be clever about it :P (been there, done that - with a few very minor things)

Eh. I guess what I'm trying to say, is that I don't necessarily think it's so hard to answer questions from fans. I think the more difficult part is not having someone to share that secret info with, and keep from spilling it :P

I think it isn't. The standard answer has its reason, and that is that a release date can't be considered a fixed date before it's announced to the public – signaling the relevant commitment to actually meet that date. So, a behind the scenes release date is a guesstimation by definition, not worth much to find out... and rather a source of major community disappointment if leaked. ^_^

 

Of course, where I'm coming from, the console companies were pretty much dictating the episode release date as soon as the QA was finally over. And experience has shown that the last thing you should communicate to a community is: "Microsoft is taking a bit longer for their Xbox evaluation process this time, so we're postponing PC and PS3 as well". Thank god that's not happening here... it makes forumites rabid on occasion. :ehehe:

I just think that, if I'd been in Erika's shoes, I'd have appreciated to have the estimation - in order to better plan for the tidal wave of work that will come with it. In a "don't plan anything around this time" kind of way.

But yeah, speculating about what Erika knows and doesn't know isn't really helpful to anyone, so sorry for starting that topic :)

Just to get serious for a moment. ;) 

 

I don't know any fancy plot secrets. I don't really know much of anything else that would be of interest to you guys, either (I mean...beyond like...how to make the best cheese soup and the stuff I post about already). ;)

 

I don't anticipate that changing, as it stands right now. And even if I did, I would not be at liberty to share any of that. So like...I know you're all teasing, but please. No one badger me about that stuff. It'll make me a sad panda.

A little late, but congratulations!

Not an easy task for sure, but I'm sure you'll have lost of fun.

Maybe now V will stop complaining paypal backers don't get updates by email :P

You know, it just occurred to me that now she can't claim that she doesn't work for RTG anymore :P

Congratulations!! I just read this... Being on Tapatalk 90% of the time makes new cool posts harder to find...
I'm really happy for Erika and for all of us. She will make things better for us too. :)

Don't badger you?  But...but...you're from Wisconsin, the land of badgers! :D
