Interview with J.P. Harrod

In this weeks Fifteen on Friday, I spoke with J.P. Harrod, a former Ultima Online CG supervisor and art director about the MMORPG genre and his experiences in it.

I'm bringing the BZ85 staple to MMOSite.com a full day early, so I hope you all enjoy it.

All this should give RPG fans something to do over the weekend while waiting for E3 next week.
