Hi Manty,

I beta tested it and was impressed by the graphics and the fact you can do quite a few missions solo without a party.

Like all MMORPG though the team and community are important and I couldn't dedicate the time needed to build up a team. It's fairly realistic to the 3.5 rules apart from the magic, spellusers get their spells back by resting at special plinths.

Personally I don't think any game should be paid for to be online. Look at NWN it has a great online comunity and it's free. Most RP servers are very beautifully designed by the players and DMs too so yeah. I don't like forking out for an online game when I've got a perfectly good free one out there.

i play this, its quite a good game, regularly updated every few months, they have a level cap of 16 at the minute (was 10 at start), you can get a free trial account from the website which gives you 10 days or get a free 30 day trial with te game (which i believe you can pick up for about 5 quid now !)

none of your turn based combat though its click to hit a bit like normal games, pretty close to d&d rules apart from spellcasters have spellpoints to cast spells, which can be recpvered at shrines in the dungeons
