  • Developers and Artists Lend a Helping Hand!

    And you can too! The artists working on Chronicles of Spellborn took some time to help sick children by contributing to MMO Portal's special MMO calendar to support the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

    MMO Portal released a special MMO calendar to support the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and Spellborn is featured on one of the calendar months with artwork signed by our artist team. All proceeds of this calendar will go directly to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, so we hope many of you are willing to support this cause. You can find more information on this special calendar here.

  • Lowbies of the World Unite

    MMORPG.com's Steve Wilson takes a look at what it is like to be a lowbie by choice!

    How many people have dozens of different mid to low level characters?

    I’ve often wondered how many other players there are out there that are like me. A long running problem I have in massive online games is my inability to stick with one character. I like to try everything, sample every class and combination. See the world and surmount obstacles from every possible angle. And for the most part this has held me back in the traditional treadmill games that are most massive online roleplaying games.
