ANNOUNCE NEWS #2670 Date: 4/14/2017 at 21:00 From: Pericles To : Everyone Subj: Meet your new Producer!
Hi folks. I'm Matt Mihaly, the CEO of Iron Realms Entertainment. As I wrote about back in December, in announce news #2605, Oleis replacing Razmael as producer was necessarily temporary, as the former is soon going to be moving onto a new career.
In the meantime, he's done some great work in terms of getting the Aetolian ship righted and pointed in a good direction, which I'm thankful for and I'd imagine many of you are too! Feel free to let him know.
Today, I'm pleased to introduce you to Tiur (Adam Womack), your new Producer. As many of you probably know, we ran a search for a new producer recently, and Tiur got the job! He's a very old hand at IRE games, having started playing Achaea 17 or 18 years ago as the character Firefox (who founded the Shaman's guild back when). He also worked on Imperian when it first opened (as Vahin), and since then has played both Lusternia and Aetolia as well.
Although he hasn't worked in the games industry before (he was an engineer in the oil industry previously), his analytical thought process combined with his long experience with and passion for Iron Realms MUDs ultimately gave him the edge over other candidates.
He's been working with Oleis, Razmael, Keroc, and the rest of the team for a week now to get up to speed, and he's coming along very well. We're going to keep Oleis on until the end of May though, to make sure there's plenty of overlap and plenty of time for Tiur to get comfortable with his new role.
Give a big welcome to Tiur, and be gentle - he's new!
