relax | TirNua's Premiere Magazine

After thinking over it, I've decided that I will have a site dedicated toward TirNua and it will cover much more broad subjects than what we covered at the EAL Herald. The site will be a magazine and will have weekly PDF publications to go along with the daily updates.

We will start looking for reporters and freelance writers this fall. We predict that the game wont be released (for beta) until Winter 08/09. This will give us much time to prepare.

Until then, check out these TirNua fan websites:
TirNua Game
TirNua Naucht
TirNua: luceat lux vestra
TirNua Central

See you this winter!

TirNua Times?

Since we've closed we've had a good amount of traffic from those who didn't know EAL is closing or are just checking up for any new happenings. I'm glad that you may still come to this site for news, but there's been no big news stories in a while. Until now...

On June 5, 2008, Luc introduces us to TirNua, a new MMO game being developed by himself and many of the old TSO-e team. You may even remember their names:Audrey, Cort, Greg, Larry, Laurent, Lee, Margaret, Sarah . They've shown their compassion and love for making games in the TSO/EAL days, now they're making TirNua from the ground up and want your input! They'll be updating their blog constantly(so they say) to get input from gamers on different aspects of the game.

One aspect that Luc already revealed, and may be a big one, is enviroment.
"As some of you have already guessed from just the lovely image above, one subject of interest in Tirnua is the environment.

Next week, when the blog opens, I will start collecting your thoughts on how we could impact our real world environment, while having fun in our virtual world."

- Luc,

We will be bringing you up-to-date news on TirNua. It is unclear whether or not we'll actually make a newspaper/blog dedicated to TirNua. Make sure you add us to your RSS feed to get the updates fast.

EAL Herald Closed

Because of the stymied growth from EAL and the lack of communication between players and devs, the EAL Herald has decided to shut down operations. We feel that EAL is on the end of it's rope and there's no where else to go but down.

We would like to thank all of the hundreds of people who visited our site daily and we hope to see you again someday.

Friendliest Sim in EAL: An Interview w/ Debbie Simth

Meet Debbie Simth, she is the friendliest sim in EA-Land and has over 300 friends to prove it.

EA Land Herald: Tell us a little about your sim and her simmy ways
Debbie Simth: Well, I came back after a two year absence. And I'm SO glad I did.

EALH: What made you return?
DS: I just really missed it. I went to EA to find out if the discs were still available and found the downloads. I was VERY fortunate to have come back at the perfect time.

EALH: So, did you ever think you would become the nicest sim in EAL?
DS: LOL - I think what I actually am is the most compulsive avatar in EAL. I decided about two weeks ago that I needed more friends, and I just haven't' been able to stop.

EALH: Haha, I noticed you're not that old (46 days old), must have been alot of work.
DS: It probably has, but I play a lot of hours a day. It's been so much fun, though, it just doesn't seem like work. If it weren't for the fact that I'm trying to carry skills without locks I could probably have more. But I keep a careful eye on the skills

EALH: Was it ever your goal to be the nicest sim?
DS: No, that just happened when I couldn't stop LOL. It was my goal to be on all 3 of the lists, though

EALH: And are you?
DS: Yes, I'm proud to say I have reached that goal.

EALH: How do you stay in touch with 300 sims?
DS: I spend at least 2 hours a day making sure the links don't drop below 75. After that, I spend another hour serenading people I havn't previously met. Finally - I check the people in the room I am near to being friends with, and finish the link. That takes about another hour.

EALH: It sounds like a chore?
DS: Well, I'm having so much fun with it, it doesn't seem like a chore : ) So it's good. When it start feeling like work I'll find another goal to work on.

EALH: What perks, if any, do you receive?
DS: Hmmmmmm. I guess you could count this interview as a "perk". Other than that I haven't really noticed anything. I have my personal sense of accomplishment and that makes me happy: ). It is really amazing to me that behind all these avatar friends are real honest to goodness people- from all over the world. WOW

EALH: Do you ever try to use your status to your advantage? lol or flaunt it to your 300 friends? lol
DS: LOL- I have no extra time for that! I hope I haven't flaunted it - but I AM human. I guess you'd have to ask others about that.

EALH: What feature would you most like to see added to EAL in the future?
DS: I hadn't really thought about that. I like the new features ( I get to see Jack Sparrow in the house I'm in now!), but as for new things I guess I'm not creative enough to "dream" what could be. I just roll with the flow.

EALH: Thank you so much Debbie for agreeing to this interview :)
DS: Thank you for asking! It was fun : )
