    The makers of the Gothic games have decided to post a <a href="http://www.worldofrisen.de/article_28.htm">"Frequently Asked Questions" page</a> with some questions that shed a little light on their direction, and some that seem anything but frequently asked.<blockquote><i>Will the island be split, so that you can only gain access to certain parts after completing chapters?</i>
    <br>
    Yes, provisions have been made for this. The story/game-sequences are arranged into chapters.
    <br>
    [...]
    <br>
    <i>Are there plans for multiple cities/camps or settlements and gathering places?</i>
    <br>
    Yes.
    <br>
    [...]
    <br>
    <i>Will there be imposing buildings or building complexes that are interconnected?</i>
    <br>
    Certainly!
    <br>
    [...]
    <br>
    <i>Will the hero have needs for food, drink, rest and will there be inner monologues?</i>
    <br>
    Yes.
    <br>
    [...]
    <br>
    <i>Apart from humans, will there be other races to interact with, like orcs, elves or dwarves?</i>
    <br>
    Yes, but none of the above.</blockquote>Go check it out for some more info, and a few goofier questions.

    I find that question misleading. In German, it says "Will the island be split into different areas or chapters?"

    While it's probable that access to certain areas is restricted like in Gothic, I rather hope that the whole island is more or less accessible from the start.


    It's an FAQ on a fansite. What do you expect?

    The newsbit is incorrect. The FAQ was posted by the World of Risen fan site, not by Piranha Bytes. PB posts (almost) daily on their forum, so the content should be correct.

    So, an rpg without dwarfs, elves or orcs? What has the world come to, I wonder :?: On the other hand, you can only take so much elvishness...so this sounds positive indeed...

    I find traditional races with roots and perhaps a new twist to be infinitely more interesting than something random put together just to be different. Most Americans and Europeans hold a latent homo eroticism towards burly machinist dwarves and communist elves.
