I can't promise to get a Shivan as an interviewee, but ask your questions here and we'll try our very best to answer. :nod:

What's mission progress like?
[16:57] <CommanderDJ> What prompted the decision to split WiH into acts?
[16:58] <battuta> it was long, we wanted to release something
[16:58] <battuta> it felt good to have a target to hit
[17:00] <RangerKarl> not sure if talking about strike mission, or jerking off
[17:00] <CommanderDJ> WUT
[17:00] <CommanderDJ> hahahahaha
[17:00] <battuta> hahahaha
[17:00] <RangerKarl> same thing really, if you think about it

Before we've released the demo, almost all of Act 1's missions were nearing completion. However, after receiving our fair share of response we've decided to do rebalance our assets, which means the missions are in the drawer for now. Luckily we won't have that much to do after we've completed that.

What is the setting for Syrk and how are the events in Syrk related to the events in freespace1 and freespace2?

Zacam: Uh. No, using an effect is okay. But you are literally using the TECHROOM ani as the weapon effect.

Please refer to Syrk: The Unification Wars.

Summing it up, Syrk is set prior to FS1 during the Terran Unification Wars. In-system subspace jumps are possible but jumpnodes (Delta Serpentis) have not been discovered yet. Act 1 of Syrk will focus primarily on one faction in the War, and will largely feel and play like FS1.

As for the events being related, we are trying to stick as close to cannon as we possibly can (Please bug Lucika :lol: ), and are extraporlating events and details in some places. However, Syrk is designed to be as close to cannon FS1/FS2 as possible.

How is it going to be close to "cannon" FS1/FS2 if there are Shivans

Nice point, that is Lucika's brainchild and as such, I can't reveal or comment much on that particular topic.

But Syrk will contain shivans (or will it?), as previously stated.

All I'm willing to reveal at this point is that there will be Shivans in the campaign, fighting the Terrans, in a way that doesn't contradict FS1 canon.

Any progress on that Shivan interviewee? It's nice to hear from both sides of the story...

Having served on the Iceni is a plus, though.

But how does one serve on the Iceni if this is before FS1? :P

Now that you mention, there is an STC Wizard in one of the missions... maybe I shouldn't get rid of it after all :P
