Irthling, take me to your leader.
RPGVault has an interview with Magic Hat, the folks behind Irth Online. From space, it appears that this was written:
"Magic Hat Software's Irth Online is a fantasy-themed persistent state project said to emphasize role-playing and allowing players to determine their own in-game experience. Officially announced late in January, although it had been on our radar for some time, it's now in late beta and targeted to enter commercial service in the coming weeks. The setting is one in which a fragile peace exists among three civilizations, the northern Arcadians, swamp-dwelling Morbus and tropical Mezoteks. Features likely to interest players who prefer open-ended virtual worlds include a free-form storyline and a skill system in which characters can learn any ability without racial or class-based restrictions. Ever since conducting an extensive interview in February, we've been on a quest to gather more in-depth information on the endeavor and its key elements. To this end, we solicited input from various team members."
