and Atlas Haven Radio
Really good interview, and very candid and open responses to the questions asked. Very informative and i was greatly impressed by the "straight up" nature of answers - it was a breath of fresh air .
Just a big thankyou to Ark Team, Dave Dobson and ofc Zume for this meeting at the quarry.
Thanks for this, no one has yet had the time or patience to post a similiar highlights thread on the Ark forum. Zume, who did the interview, has put up an edited version (with the music etc cut out leaving just the interview) to be downloaded HERE if anyone is interested in hearing it. The full show (a long one as David is a big talker ) is also online to just listen HERE.
Exciting times ahead on Arkadia
"I exist as Sal’diresh, last remaining Knight of the world Arkadia. Hopeless is our chance of survival. Those that remain exist here at Artalia, both final bastion for hope and final despair for the people of Arkadia. Any beings to hear, we ask please. Help us."
yea Zume did a great job in the interview.. and i believe she has a link to the recording of it .. for those that want to listen to it on the Arkadia Forums.
