From Guilds and Game Content: Our MMO lives are spent in daily monotony: we spend hours killing the same monsters in the same dungeons, weeks of adventuring profits are saved for a coveted new-new sword or breastplate. Guilds allow us companionship, teamwork, and a human element of excitement that would -otherwise be missing in our games.

Tabula Rasa- MMO released Nov 2007
Lord Britain is involved!
Description: Tabula Rasa™ is a massively multiplayer online action game that takes you into the heat of battle at the frontlines of an epic war between a xenophobic alien race bent on galactic conquest and the coalition of rebel soldiers who've traveled across the galaxy to stop them.
Read the Hype:
Combining fast-paced action with the immersion of a role-playing game, Tabula Rasa takes the player on an intergalactic adventure where the individual has an opportunity to significantly impact the pace of battle on a global scale. Players enter the game as rebel soldiers wielding a variety of futuristic weapons, potent demolitions and the mystical power of “Logos.” It is up to each individual to use their stealth, ingenuity and skill to assist a ragtag coalition of rebels in their efforts to stop an enemy known for its intelligence and unyielding determination to enslave the Universe.

Two Worlds- RPG released Aug 07.
5/07- A Look at Two Worlds.
5/07- Excerpt from the July07 PCGamer- Perhaps one of the most interesting things about TW is that both single-player and multiplayer (which plays just like a single-player campaign, but with more people) are persistent- in other words, everything you do has an impact on the world, even when you're playing online. It then goes to describe a case where a player using alchemy creates a potion and names it. This potion will have the name attached to it so when another person happens upon the same potion, he will get a message that he created "so and so's brew".
Sword of the New World- MMO. Allows participants to control 3 characters simultaneously.
