Atari - too tired to drive home
The 3DO Interactive Multiplayer was originally conceived by The 3DO Company , founded in 1991 by Electronic Arts founder Trip Hawkins . The company's objective was to create a next-generation, CD-based video game/entertainment standard which would be manufactured by various partners and licensees; 3DO would collect a royalty on each console sold and on each game manufactured. To game publishers , the low US$3 royalty rate per game was a better deal than the higher royalties paid to Nintendo and Sega when making games for their consoles . The 3DO hardware itself was designed by Dave Needle and . Mical (designers of the Commodore Amiga and the Atari Lynx ), starting from an outline on a restaurant napkin in 1989.  Trip Hawkins was a long-time acquaintance of Needle and Mical and found that their design very closely fit his philosophy for architecture and approach, so he decided that "Rather than me start a brand new team and starting from scratch it just made a lot of sense to ... join forces with them and shape what they were doing into what I wanted it to be." 
In the early 1800s, despite it being a period before the Accords , Catarina developed a good relationship with the Herondale family . When the Clave claimed that Tobias Herondale abandoned his comrades in Bavaria and decided to punish his wife, Eva Blackthorn , for it, Catarina looked for and found him wandering mad in the forest but was unable to save him. Deciding to intervene, which she could not publicly or legally do, she snuck into Eva's prison in the Gard. She used magic to deliver Eva and Tobias's unborn child early, as well as to cloak this fact during Eva's execution. Catarina then raised the boy, until he was grown, in the New World as a mundane, never telling him what he was.
