Like the title says, Brad Mcquaid and a team of 10 industry vets are trying to start an old school mmo the focuses on the social aspect that has gone missing in the last few years.

Looks interesting for any old school mmo vets.

I love that there is some interest in a NON hand holding mmo.

I hope if he somehow gets lucky and gets this out the door it does better than Vanguard. I struggle to see how this game will be different from Vanguard and do better. I also hope his company doesn't run out of money. For that they need to plan well and set their expectations right.

For anybody who liked old school EQ but with a modern twist then think about pledging. If you didn't like corpse runs, this won't be that bad. The punishment mechanics are reduced, but it's still focused on being challenging.

These're the things Brad focuses on with Pantheon:
* Mostly open-world, but with some instances
* Favors group-oriented gameplay
* Primary focus on exploration and combat and secondary focus on longterm quests
* Class-based with epic quests for each class
* Many NPC factions (relationship with you can be hostile or friendly)
* Some instant travel, some manual travel
* Zone-based open-world areas, like EQ
