So, I have found a new webbased game to play. Monsters Game, based on the outwar format (kind of) pits vampires and werewolves against one another. Link clicking is not required in this game, as it is in outwar. But it does help, and grants you bonus gold and "loot". It also introduces a ancestral system, that kind of works like a chain letter. You can click a link, and then sign up under the person who's link you clicked. That provides you with a "sire", a way into the game that gives you a non generic anscestor. The benefit to this is the ancestor recieves a small bonus that they created a fledgling. The Pyramid system only works on the first tier of fledglings you create. Anyway it gives you something to do if your bored, or genuinly interested in the battle between evil and more evil.
For more details see Monsters Game

In other news I hit 72 the other day in Everquest an am pushing for 73 this week. New expansion comes out in November that updates Faydwer, witness's the rise to power of Meldrath, and brings the mighty prismatic dragon Kerafym back to norrath, with plans on destroying the world as we know it. See for more details.

The Lord of the Rings Online launches today.

It's breathtaking, and highly recommended. Join us on the Vilya server.

Also, this from by way of


Hello Friends,

Like so many of us, my site’s community has a large contingent of military personnel (including many who are stationed overseas). One of my members brought the following article to my attention:

In summary, fantasy and role-playing fans stationed overseas are looking to host the first ever Gaming Convention to be held in a war zone. This is not strictly an American operation, and is open to all allied forces in the area. They, however, are quite hard up for the funds and materials needed. These things are not available in Iraq, and they are quite difficult for them to obtain.

My community has decided to fund raise and attempt to get what we can to help this endeavor. In addition to asking for donations from book and gaming stores, as well as obtaining financial donations from our own members, we would like to offer an invitation to any other friends who might like to help.

Our Philanthropy Director has already contacted the group (he is in the Navy himself, and is able to use official channels to communicate fairly quickly), and they have responded with a wish list. They are in need of:
- Dice. They need dice in a big way. 4, 6, 10, and 20 side die all needed.
- Role-playing books, campaigns, etc.
- PRIZES! With the understanding that these prizes cannot be weapons (no swords, etc.), alcohol, or anything prohibited in that country (exceptionally racy comic books might be an issue…. or pork. >> ). Books would be wonderful.
- Funds

Their gaming schedule is as follows:

Sunday - 1200-1600
2. Shadowrun
3. XCrawl
4. Magic Tournament
5. Rifts
6. Babylon 5 RPG
7. Munchkin Card Game Demo
8. Wheel Of Time RPG

Sunday - 1600-1700
1. Wind up games, prepare for next session.
2. Drawings for FREE STUFF

Sunday - 1700-1830
1. Dinner - To Conform To DFAC Hours

Sunday - 1830-Finish
1. White Wolf System-Vampire
2. White Wolf System-Werewolf
3. Starship Troopers
4. MechWarrior Miniatures Demo
5. Cyberpunk 2020
6. Historic Miniatures Battles
7. CyberPunk

Obviously, we see that they do have a Wheel of Time game planned, which is fabulous! But we’re looking to give them as much overall support we can, in addition to helping support WoT fandom.

From a personal standpoint….
My brother has been over there 3 times. He goes again in September. My brother in law is about to go on his third tour of duty and leaves in early June. He is a WoT fan and dungeon master. Words cannot express how excited he is to possibly be able to attend this. My best friend leaves in July. Even my “Warder” from my site is active military. I have 7 members currently in Iraq, more scheduled to leave, from several countries. Normalcy is so desperately important to these wonderful men and women. We definitely have fans in the military. I think this is especially true of the Wheel of Time series….

I completely understand if this is something that does not interest you, or if it is something you cannot accommodate at this time. But I did want to reach out and see if anyone might be interested. We would like to make a difference in the lives of some very important people. “Many hands make light work.”

Even if you might consider placing an announcement on your page? This could help direct interested parties. Consider engaging your community in a fundraising effort? Wonderful. Are you able to donate prizes or supplies? This is what they seem to be most in need of.

Our point person can be found at If people are looking to make monetary donations, we have a paypal account in that name. 100% of anything donated will go towards the Con. If you are interested in sending actual goods (such as prizes, books, dice, etc.), let me know and I will send you the address of our point person. You do have the option of sending it directly to the address indicated in the article. If we go through one person, we can not only more clearly inventory, but he can also send it more directly through military mail (customs is a lot easier through this method). However, even through that method, there can be up to 3 or 4 weeks of delay before delivery. He will be doing a mailing to them in 2 weeks, so time is quite short, but I think we can definitely help in that time.

We do plan on contacting both specialized and major news sources about the Con and about efforts to support it. There is no guarantee the story would be picked up, but we do plan on issuing press releases, and will include the name of any companies and sites who decide to contribute.

Thanks for reading. J I appreciate your friendship and the business relationships we have had and continue to have. If this interests you, please do let me know at (cc ). And if it isn’t your cup of tea, I still appreciate you reading it, and look forward to the next endeavor we work on together.

All my best and well wishes for you and yours,

Melissa Craib

Lord of the Rings Online -- Open Beta.

Feel free to join the World Tour, April 6-24th. Download and play for free. Highly recommend pre-ordering if you intend to play--can save $5 a month on the subscription.

Brief description: Tolkien's world + intuitive gameplay.

Longer description: World looks realistic and beautiful, but not that high end as far as resources go. Characters look great. Classes are unique, and very different, at least at first. With no classic "int caster" class, ie nuker, the melee/int caster classes of everquest have basically been combined and redefined in the standard melee classes.

For example, Hunter = ranger/wizard. You nuke with a bow. Burglar = rogue/enchanter. You use your stealth to do own dps and also to neutralize targets (crowd control). The standard archetypes have been sort of dissolved and reassembled. Everything is basically there, but in a different and lore accurate way.


At the moment, members are rolling on the Vilya server, but that could change at any time. We're looking for the empty servers. Feel free to join us.

The Keeper has been defeated!

Last night, about fifteen members and welcome guests defeated The Keeper, the final fight for the monk epic 1.5.

Congratulations Oibara on your epic!

Also, stay tuned for details about our next raid, or, if you're new, register and post your thoughts on what we should tackle next.
