Because I’ve missed the panel, “MMO’s: Past, Present, and Future,” I stop by the Red 5 Studios Expo booth to talk to Mark Kern, CEO of Red 5 Studios. Mark Kern worked on World of Warcraft before co-founding Red 5 Studios. Storytelling in MMO’s is something on Kern’s mind. He spoke of “synthesized content,” as opposed to user-created content or company-created assets. In synthesized content, the system (or world) would generate story events when needed. For example, if there were a group of users not doing much and it was a PvP world, a message could be sent to their mortal enemies in the game directing them towards the idle group.
