  • The Dynamic Dwarf



    May we present the dwarf, in all his stocky, gruff glory. Ralsu gives us a profile on the mighty mountain-dweller, complete with details about racial traits, bonuses, and penalties in the newest installment on the Ten Ton Hammer Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach site.


    Because dwarves can live over 400 years, they pick their battles carefully. This does not mean that they hesitate to do battle; they simply exercise more consideration than comparatively short-lived humans and halflings. Most often, dwarves fight to protect land or possessions, not for causes or ideals. When a dwarf is finally spurred to combat, he displays a tolerance for damage and a high resistance to magic.





    Is the dwarf the right race for your Dungeons & Dragons Online (DDO) character? Read the guide to find out!

  • Gamer has a QNA with Turbine about the soon to be released title Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach.

    Don't you think that we're on the verge of entering another MMO games overflow? How many more games do you think that the market can sustain before it implodes?

    Not really. The only major subscription MMO released since the since the end of 2004 was City of Villains, and it's not even a fantasy game.

    I think some players will always feel that there's a game overflow, but that's just because they're good games out there these days. No one, not even the unemployed college student, can play them all. At the same time, no entertainment industry ever lost its way by providing good choices to the customer. As new games continue to grow the MMO marketplace, it will have room for more games, not fewer.

    And folks... You can also read it in Hebrew. It just doesn't get any better than this.

  • 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

  • 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.
