Left Field

So i know a lot of folks play the popular MMOs like WOW and RIFT and all that and i certainly don't expect anyone to leave their current for what i play but if you have some spare time.... which if your reading this you apparently have far too much of it lol, then take a minute to check out the shadowbane emulator project it came out way back in may 2003 and its official servers have since been closed. but a dedicated team has built a new server framework and is even working on a new client eventually. much effort has been made by theses devs to be able to do this and remain legal. the game is basically a mouse click movement, PVP oriented, super customizable class system, non potion spamming, minimal safezone having, gank fest with decent speed leveling and a very well built economy. oh and all but a few cities in the game are run by players. at the moment the user friendliness of it all is pretty low.... but hey just letting people know it exists. its one of those games the gives a true rush unlike a lot of others when you kill another player.

  2. its currently in the initial stages of beta testing. right now its just monthly previews and there is currently one going on. I've been following it since the original died and this popped up shortly after. played a little in the alpha and contributed recordings to help rebuild the world. the progress is pretty stunning. I'll re-post it again once its out of beta and worth more attention but when a game is near and dear to your heart you cant help but blab about it eh?
