The Defiance Game Wiki has gone live!
On the wiki you can place information on your game characters, their clans, technology you uncover etc.
The Learn Votan part of the site has gone live! Learn Votan is devoted to bringing people information about the various Votan races, their languages and culture as well as helping the everyday person to learn to speak and write in these languages. There is still a lot to do and a lot more information on the way. Be sure to check it out.
Bit of a boring post here. These are the stats for the English wiki for the month of January.
The busiest day was 18th January (the first day of the Beta test):
The slowest day was 1st January (I'm sure everyone had hangovers)
The busiest day for visitors in January was a Friday (perhaps due to the live stream exciting people about the game):
And the busiest time for the month was between 4:00 PM and 6:00 PM
The top 10 countries to visit the site:
The most visited page was the Defiance game page. The top search phrase that led to the site was "von bach industries" and the top search world that led to the site was "defiance".
The most recent of Trion's Twitch streams showed a main mission in the game where the ark hunter (you, the player) finds Karl Von Bach who had gone missing following his arrival in the Bay Area. The mission story has you locate an evac seat which Von Bach used to escape (presumably from a ship or plane) and then teaming up with the Irathient Cass Ducar to locate him.
You track him down to Delta Bunker West which has become the residence of several Mutants. Long story short, you blast your way through cutting down the mutants and automated guns and locate Von Bach hiding in a locker, having located the piece of technology, the Ark-core, that he was looking for.
More details, including a transcript can be found here.
The first of our character intros on a game character.
Varus Soleptor is a male Liberata and the head of Soleptor Enterprises. Varus is said to have foreseen the Gulanite rush and planned ahead to make profit. Despite being a Liberata and expected to become part of the servant class, he broke free and is said to be the richest person in Paradise Territory.
The most "human" looking of the Votan races are the Castithans. Pale skin, white hair and yellow eyes, the Castithans appear to be the high class of the Votans and leaders among what remains. They have a very religious or spiritual society which they have maintained since coming to Earth, but they have given up on many of their social traditions allowing for the low caste families to intermingle and intermarry with higher caste families and allowing for females to have a more active role and a less submissive nature.
