Shards Online: Chat with Community Manager Aimee ‘Melaedha’ Jarboe

Hey Dusty Monkey here again, today I bring you another Shards Online interview which technically was the first interview I did but that doesn’t matter!

Before the Logrus Interview I was very lucky to catch up with one of the two community managers for Shards Online Aimee Jarboe aka Melaedha.

During the 30 (ish) minute, We chat about the community that has grown out of Shards Online and how easy that community is to manage. We also chat about how important the community is to the development of the game.

We discussed how and why Melaedha ended up working with the team and who caused her to feel star struck (Ultima Online fans will recognize the name). Another topic covered what it is like to work for Citadel Studios, some of her favorite aspects of Shards Online. how it felt to have a successful Kickstarter, and how that will make a big difference to the development.

This was the first time I had done this style of interview and I have to admit, I really enjoyed it! I am currently working on setting up a third interview with another member of the team. If you have any questions for the team, please catch me on the forums or send me a message via my youtube channel, where you will find loads of in game footage of the previous playtests! Alternatively, why not ask the devs yourself by getting involved with Shards Online!

Pre-alpha is coming soon and there is still time to make sure your part of the first closed pre-alpha play test. Just make sure and head to the Shards Online Website and join in with the community!

Anyway, Hope you enjoyed the interview as much as I did and see you for the next one!
