    I'm glad to see Turbine get some success out of DDO. I all ways thought it was a much under appreciated gem in the MMORPG market. Sure it didn't have much content to begin with but with the new payment offers and the massive population of the American servers I can see DDO lasting a long long time.

    Really should give D&D online a go sometime. It sounded really interesting when it came out.

    I'd been waiting to post in here, since I was under the NDA, as a Beta Tester, and didn't want to shoot myself in the foot, so to speak....but as of today, the cat is out of the bag.

    I play on the Landroval Server, and have been in the Kinship "Rohirrim" since Beta 1, 3 years ago. We're fairly small, and tight group. We aren't a raiding kinship, but we do have ties/alliances to a few kins that allow those of us that do raid to participate, when we want. We are also what I'd call Med-RP...(I know that most of you will dread the thought of those words)...when I say Medium, I mean it...We have events where we are all IC, but no one flops of the ground crying if you goof. We try to encourage you to RP with us, but it's NOT a requirement.(we give A's for effort though!!)...We have an entire chat for RP, and a seperate one for OOC.

    We also run alot of Events...Examples would be like our Horse Lords Fest Coming near the end of this month. We have games(Races(both horse and foot), band competetions, poetry competetion, fishing contests, joke contests, sparring contests, and I'm sure I'm missing few.) We hand out food and drink(and smoke ). Last year this event gathered around 100 people into our kinship's yard/neighborhood, and it lasted well over 4 hours. We try to make it loads of fun and include all. Prizes are handed out after each event, generally in the theme of Rohan(Like a Rohan Spear, or Armour Piece(s)). We also hold regular "Musters" or meetings, here we gather to promote people(complete with an Oath), and often follow it up with a march thru town, and/or a simple game of tag.

    We are a Rank 12 Kin, have 2 Kinhouses(one up the street from the other). Our main goal is simple, play nice and have fun...kinda like the Rule #1 Here...Being a Dick isn't tolerated, at all....I have the /boot function set to a button to be sure there is no delay in the cause/effect system.(I've only used it 2 times in 3 years due to our interviewing system)

    I realize that all of this may not sound great to many of you, but if anything I've said here sounds like fun to you, shoot me a post in-game(Deto, on Landroval Server), or if you'd rather jump ahead and apply with us, please visit, and sign-up at : [url]http://www.the-rohirrim.com[/url].

    If you'd rather not join but want to just shoot the breeze, feel free to add me to your friends list(again, on Landroval) I'll be more than glad to help any of you, my fine friends at PC Gamer.

    Deto

    PS: Please don't let the whole "RP" thing scare you, and/or creep you out...I am probably the least RP of our group(Came from a hard-core raid guild in WOW, and had never even attempted to RP). It truely can be fun, especially with people who aren't asshats about it. Also we don't do "Drama" style RP...(thinking of Goldshire...*shivers*)

    Indeed I actually thought it was pretty great when it came out. The main complaint I heard was that one player could not solo all the content, but it's FRIGGIN D&D only the saddest nerd in the world would play it alone. Anyway I quit eventually just because I was tired of 3rd edition character building after playing the heck out of NWN but I recently tried out the free version. I ended up paying the equivalent of a subscription because I enjoyed it enough. I wish other MMOs had dungeons that actually try to have traps/puzzles etc. and not just a long hallway full of mobs.

    I think it will last a while as well though I hope they roll out an offshoot at some point in a different setting/system with some updated graphics and gameplay.

    I like(d) Lord of the Rings online a lot as we;; but I still say it has the worst classes of any MMORPG. Come on guys admit it they were very very dull. Though this has probably changed with both of its expansions. I'm actually looking forward to giving its free to play a go I have an account and apparently have a few free turbine points on it. Good times will be had!

    Props to Vanguard - that had a good classes...shame about the game and Sigil though. Suppose I should also credit WoW for having a reasonable selection that don't all feel the same.
