Dark Age of Camelot Grab Bag Q&A

Mythic Entertainment's Joanne Laroche has added yet another entry to the long-running Dark Age of Camelot Grab Bag Q&A series on the Camelot Herald.
Q. Will siege merchants still be available on the Origins ruleset or will we be back to the old days of the conveyor belt of characters hauling wood for repairs from Cotswold to the Relic/Border Keeps? Will siege be left as it is (with apparatuses, etc.) or back to the old style of having all pieces put together for final deployment?

A. I waited in line to ask the Lady of the Jewels this one: The plan at this time is to include siege merchants. As far as the actual deployment of siege is concerned, we are considering a system similar to the apparatuses of current Siegecraft, or to the old diminutive siege. At the same time, however, we would exclude several of the levels of siege on the Origins rule set, leaving two or three choices for each type, and we would not require a separate tradeskill to be leveled up to make and deploy siege.
