Trion Worlds gets inspiration for an NPC name from ZAM Writer Gazimoff
A couple of months ago, Senior Contributing Editor for ZAM, Gareth "Gazimoff" Harmer, was given a guided tour of Rift's new expansion Storm Legion. Leading his tour was Senior Game Designer from Trion Worlds Will Cook. The article was published and even tweeted about before the team here at ZAM noticed a couple of errors. First was that the game's released date was typed as November 18th instead of November 13th. The other error? Every mention of Will Cook was written as Woody Cook.
Like any good team, they jumped into action updating the article to reflect the date and name. If you look at the article you will see a correction section at the bottom of the page mentioning the updated date, but the update to the name the team hoped would go unnoticed and fade into the night. But Trion Worlds had other plans.
Thinking this misstep has long since passed, you can imagine Harmer's surprise this week when he comes across an NPC in the expansion named non-other than Woody Cook.
GG Trion. GG.
