From 2005-2006, I was working on Shadowbane, and wanted to talk about MMO design issues without being in a position of promising anything to anyone.  As such, I devised the Monday Morning Design Questiona post that would typically have no content but a question for my readership.  Reading through these, I felt that there were some value in these comments, so I’ve created this page to link directly to those pages on the outdated version of this blog on  These posts were not otherwise transferred into the new blog.
