    DDO: Menace of the Underdark Announced

    It appears after all the updates and the change in business model, Dungeons & Dragons Online is finally getting its first real expansion! Edit: And, uh, Holy Jehosefats, Batgeeks, it is going to be set in the Forgotten Realms?!

    Dungeons & Dragons Online gets first expansion this summer - GameSpot.com

    Not the first time I wish I had not had to quit playing video games (though of course it was while playing DDO that I came to the realization that I had to).

    Good name in man and woman, dear my lord,
    Is the immediate jewel of their souls.
    Who steals my purse steals trash; 'tis something, nothing;
    'Twas mine, 'tis his, and has been slave to thousands;
    But he that filches from me my good name
    Robs me of that which not enriches him
    And makes me poor indeed.

    -Iago, Shakespeare's Othello, Act III. Scene III. Lines 180-186.

    Yes, this is quite tempting. I have sworn off MMOs for the winter as this is usually the season I get sucked into them when the days grow short. Between this and pathfinder's MMO coming out, we'll see if I can resist the siren's call.

    DOO is still free to play (even truer than most MMO's these days) but not sure about Pathfinder MMO being f2p or subscription.

    This is confusing. DDO was Eberron, Forgotten Realms is another world. So there will be Warforged running in the Realms? Or are they dropping Eberron and just doing Forgotten Realms?

    DDO: Eberron Unlimited will now become DDO: Unlimited. Turbine now has rights to Forgotten Realms and possible other settings for future expansions.

    Could someone perhaps post the text of the interview? For some reason neither Firefox nor IE will display GameBanshee's three new DDO articles properly for me...

    It would be a big risk to alienate the game's player base by removing races for a payed expansion.

    As much as I'm not a fan of the warforged, using them to tick off Realms Purists sounds like fantastic idea.
