  • We are equal opportunity gamers....
    Earth Eternal has posted two more chapters from the game's storyline on their official website. Here's a sample from Chapter 11.

    Despite this return to the lands of their youth, the Mystarchs found no welcome homecoming upon their arrival in their appointed regions. Word of Zahhak’s cruel and dismissive rule had spread throughout all of Europe and the Mystarchs, once widely viewed as noble protectors of the land and people, were now seen as the vassals of a mad overlord. Still, the nations were obedient, if grudgingly, for they had experienced the power of the Mystarchs in the noon sun of their power.

Go see these elaborate hoaxes, as Xerin says, while they're still funny:

    World of Warcraft

    EverQuest 2

    Lord of the Rings Online
