Default Rhialto's New Game

I was going to put this in the Update Megathread but since it's a new game I'll start a new one. I inquired to R about the new game, and he shot me back an email. He said I could share this stripped down version:

Is that OK?

For legal reasons I'd rather refer to it as a sequel, even though all the user-generated content (maps, monsters, quests, items, etc.) will be the same.
I'm not posting this for everyone to get their hopes up, but the few that stick around and look for updates every day I'm sure would like this little bit of information.

Epic news, R needs an intern. . . with a blog addiction. Thanks for keeping us updated Bullfrogz.

I'm really looking forward to this "sequel". Its been far too long since I decided to log on a game to just stand around and chat in an auction house. Of course I'll have to try and do the HoF equivalent first but then I'll spend countless hours doing nothing just like the old days. After proofing this I realized it has a sarcastic tone to it but I say it all in honesty. I've missed being able to play wyvern and am looking forward to playing whatever R is cooking up for us.

Not going to lie I would totally play anything he were to make after the greatness that was Wyvern. Although, between Crossfire, ToME, And Conquest of Elysium 3, I have my wyvernish category full...but I could always make room for something else.

Either I just got back from the optometrist and they did a number on my eyes, or I'm really drunk.

You should ask him to provide a screenshot or two.

I would certainly hope he has some sort of GUI working after 150-200+ hours on a project. It's not unrealistic to think he would be using placeholders of some sort if all he is doing is strictly code.

I don't/won't use Reddit for personal reasons, but I'd like to be added to the list of potential candidates for beta testing. Please consider this post an expression of my interest!

Super excited to see that Wyvern isn't dead yet. My craving for this game hasn't been satisfied by anything else, and I've been itching to play it again for years. I'm an addict and I need help :(

Sorry to be the one to break it to you, but Rhialto is not making a new game any longer.
