Dungeons & Dragons Online: Eberron Unlimited

  • The TTH Dungeons & Dragons Site has a new article up about Death in the upcoming DDO: Stormreach.

    Zed has experienced many an epic battle and at least one unexpected death in his adventures playing the pen-and-paper (PnP) Dungeons & Dragons. Now, he gives us an inside look at how death is handled in the PnP game, and how it’s being treated in Dungeons & Dragons Online.

    “Whether it was players’ forgetfulness, boldness, stupidity, or who knows what… the result was a five man ‘total wipe’ as we know them in MMOGs. What killed them: A huge dragon; an army of trolls; a legion of undead; a mad necromancer? No, a gardener; a solitary bugbear gardener armed with a scythe.”

    If you're like me and have never died *crosses fingers, eyes and toes at THAT lie* You may want to read it here

    Turbine is very pleased to announce that we will be running a special Preview of DUNGEONS & DRAGONS ONLINE: Stormreach in conjunction with IGN and FilePlanet!

    This Preview is open to players in North America who are registered Fileplanet users (a paid FilePlanet subscription is NOT required). Only U.S. residents age 18 and over are eligible to win prizes.

    Beginning today, January 13, all registered FilePlanet users in North America can sign-up for the chance to access the DDO Preview, which will run from Thursday, January 19 through Saturday, January 21. Preview access will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis until the allotted Preview registration keys have been distributed by FilePlanet. If you are not currently a registered FilePlanet user, you can visit FilePlanet right now to create an account and then sign up for the DDO Preview.

    You can now activate your preorder bonus key. Doing this will create a game account that you will be able to use once the headstart begins in late February and allow you to obtain the +1AC amulet. Again, the amulet will become available once the headstart begins. This account can then be upgraded once you get the retail copy of the game which will allow you to continue using the account once the game officially goes live.

  • RPG Vault has a Dungeons and Dragons Video Commentary for your viewing enjoyment.

    What we've seen of the game so far is certainly very intriguing and we wanted to make sure to share as much of it with you as possible. To that end, we had the chance to corner Lead Designer Ken Troop and get him to provide some commentary over footage captured from the game.
    Each of the videos encompasses different elements of the game for around 25 minutes of footage total. Therefore we thought it would be best to split them into three different videos but we certainly recommend grabbing all of them in succession.. You'll see everything from general thoughts about the world of Eberron to how the team dynamic can affect quests and combat.

    Do yourself a favor and visit our Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach Site You won't regret it.

  • "Ask and Ye Shall Receive!" .... most of the time.

    Here is a compilation of Dungeons and Dragons Online: Stormreach Previews outside of our lovely community.





    I'll add more as I find them. TTFN!

    I'd like to take this time to talk about the dangers of not ingesting enough coffee. It's not a good thing and frankly I wouldn't try it at home. One must have at least four cups a day to successfully function in the real world. For the non-real world I suggest a full bodied Mountain Dew.

  • I can see clearly now the NDA is gone. Ok I know it's cheesy.

    DUNGEONS & DRAGONS ONLINE™: Stormreach™ Confidentiality Obligations Lifted 09-Jan-2006
    Turbine is pleased to announce that the confidentiality obligations in the Preview and Non-disclosure Agreement for the DUNGEONS & DRAGONS ONLINE™: Stormreach™ Beta have been lifted earlier than anticipated. This means players in the Beta Program and those who took part in the Stress Test Events are free to talk about the game on public forums. After getting so much positive feedback from our Beta players, we felt it was time to let them share their opinions and praise for DDO with the rest of the MMOG community.

    Good news indeed for all of the DND players out there who are looking forward to this game.

    Take a minute to check out our Dungeons and Dragons Online: Stormreach Site It has alot of great content.

    Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee

    In the typical sandwich combat MMO, there’s little point in trying to dodge blows from a monster you’re fighting; it’s programmed to hit you regardless. While you can engage a DDO monster in that manner, real-time reactions will make you a much more efficient fighter (with a lot more hit points left over at the end of a fight). Don’t just stand in front of the enemy and trade blows. Keep those feet moving - to the flanks - adjust your position. Much like boxers and marital artists do, move around to keep your opponent off-balance. Nimble monsters present a challenge, they may move to face you as fast as you move away, so mix your movement by also jumping back and forth as you attack. I see too many barbarians and rangers (in light armor) trying to trade blows toe-to-toe. They may win, but are often more wounded than necessary and are soon dipping into their potion supply or crying for the nearest healer when the next encounter slams the party. And healers, just like fighters, are working on a strategic budget in any given dungeon crawl - there’s no automatic health or magic point regeneration here!
