In our original story, a number of our own readers noted the similarities to BioWare’s marketing language regarding Star Wars: The Old Republic in the discussion that followed. Ethic at Kill Ten Rats took it a step further and managed to track down a specific press release that appears quite similar to the one issued by Quest Online to announce the re-launch of Alganon.
From the recently issued Alganon release:
â€œTraditionally, massively multiplier online games have been about three basic gameplay pillars â€“ combat, exploration and character progression,â€ Derek Smart continued. â€œIn Alganon, in addition to these weâ€™ve added the fourth pillar to the equation; a story. We delivered a fun, immersive adventure that gamers expect in a top quality massively multiplayer online game. To top it all off, weâ€™re not done yet. A whole new adventure with new updates will follow soon, starting with a consignment house, new classes, PvP and much more.â€
In today’s Chronicles of One Telaran, MMORPG.com’s Paul Crilley takes readers on a tour of the Old Gods inhabiting the Telaran realms. Caedryn the Dwarf learns all there is to know about each of the oldies…but goodies or baddies, depending on your perspective. Read more and then leave us your comments.
With the first few intro quests out of the way, I have to admit that things are very interesting here and we are thrown right into the deep end. It seems that Silverwood is being invaded. Maelforge, the dragon of fire, is using a breach in the planes to communicate with members of the Wanton, his dragon cult followers. These deluded fools are trying to bring him through the rift. And Caedryn has to stop that; otherwise the world (cue movie trailer voiceover guy) will fall beneath an apocalypse of flame.
