Dreamlords: Internet Management System

Allowing players to log into the website and actively manage their game is a great way to keep players involved and thinking about a game when they do not have time to play.

Why not create a Web service that allows me to log in on my lunch hour (from a remote location of course) and check on how my crafting is going.
