Our MMOG Wiki has taken off faster than Russell Crowe at a paparazzi convention. Ten Ton Wiki is quickly turning into the way for the MMO community to come together and build something that is actual useful. I know that many of you thought this was impossible, but we consider it the U.N. of MMOs, without Syria and Iraq.
Players are filling up what is for all intents and purposes a MMOG encyclopedia with facts about their favourite games.
Ten Ton Wiki covers not only the games, but the people who make them, drilling down past simple development company listings to individual developer bios.
- World of Warcraft
- The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar
- Vanguard: Saga of Heroes
- Dungeons and Dragons Online
- A Tale in the Desert
If you possess some information that isn't in the wiki, please contribute. The wiki is advertisement free and open to the public.

Gods and Heroes: Ain't No Mountain High Enough
" Gods and Heroes is definitely one of the more anticipated MMO's currently in developmenent right now. How is it shaping up, and will we be excited when it arrives? Kiara takes a look at this Roman themed game and drools over Russell Crowe in Gladiator. Snippit: What is Gods and Heroes about? Where is it set? What's its genre? Is it fun? Will it hold my interest? Why do I want to play this game? "

Vanguard: Saga of Heroes - Ask The Devs - Gathering Places
"Some of us have fond memories of the gathering places in our favorite games. What EverQuest vet doesn't recall trading their hard-earned loot for plat in the East Commons tunnel; or mass group buff parties and fireworks extravaganzas in the Plane of Knowledge? Our community member, Kainen, wants to know about social gathering places in Vanguard: Saga of Heroes. Senior Game Designer Bill Fisher provides insight in this week's Ask the Devs. "
Vanguard: Saga of Heroes - Best Damn MMO No One Plays
"Name an MMO that's really good now but wasn't half so good at launch. If you said EQ2 you win a cookie. (No, we don't really have cookies.) EQ2 is the perfect example of a game that got it right only well after launch, and after losing a large chunk of its subscribers. How can Vanguard: Saga of Heroes avoid suffering a similar fate? Read Shayalyn's blog and share your comments."
