EVE: Fanfest
Well, I'm back from Iceland. Got in nice and late, 23:00 or so on Sunday. It was great fun. Reykjavik nightlife is quite impressive, even if the weather was 'less than clement'.

Large amounts of hardcore EVE geekery at fanfest, which I'll filter :).

The real 'news piece' for those that haven't heard yet, is that CCP Games (makes of EVE) are merging with White Wolf. Yes, the same White Wolf that does Vampire, Werewolf, Exalted etc.

Basically they did a Collectable card game quite recently, and realised that there was potential. EVE itself is actually quite conducive to roleplaying (you're playing a character who's controlling a ship and doing stuff, by controlling a ship and doing stuff). However it also has quite an impressive array of 'backplot': http://www.eve-online.com/background/ if you're interested. Or http://www.eve-online.com/races/saccade/ for the latest 'short story'.

The initial plans involve CCP working towards a World of Darkness MMO, and White Wolf looking at an EVE RPG. (Although they haven't really started on either yet).

Is the announcement on the EVE-O forums, with links to the other sites.

For some reason I scan-read that as "The initial plans involve CCP working towards a World of Warcraft MMO" and nearly died!
So how expensive is it in Iceland then? How much (in GBP) is it for a normal beer?

Iceland all in I went through about £750.
Beer at the hotel bar was 700isk. At the 'fanfest bar' it was 450. That's £5.32 and £3.42 respectively.
The hangover remedy pizza from Pizza Hut next door, was 3400isk or £26.63
