  • All the World is a Stage...

    Vanguard Spheres has posted an interview with GM Tage. Get a glimpse inside the world of this very interesting GM who is well known for his love of running events!

    To resume our "Chats with the GMs", I thought I would follow my stroll with Vladmiir (it did take me a while to find my way back, silly rogue!) by catching an early-rising GM-Tage, aka Todd Thomas, and getting him to do what he likes best.....talk!

    It did prove even more interesting than I hoped! How could it not, actually, when this person lives in a world of fantasy and dreams in color??!! (Ok, so I'm guessing! I forgot to ask.) But enough small talk. Enjoy your coffee and read on!

  • Three Castles and Four Clan Halls

    A press release was issued this morning that highlights the addition of three new castles and four clan halls for Lineage II. Keep readinng to find out more...

    In the chaotic world of Lineage II, clans and alliances vie for control of the land. Clan hall ownership and castle sieges are the pinnacle of the Player versus Player experience. Two new castles and a number of new clan halls have been added to the world in Chronicle 5: Oath of Blood.

    The clan that controls a castle in the lands of Aden and Elmore has a direct influence on the politics and economy in the nearby area. The castle lords demand a tax from all of the residents in the territory, giving the castle-owning clan authority and control of the area. With so much at stake, every castle siege is an epic and thrilling conflict with the clan’s power up for the taking.
