|Worthplaying is the next site to preview 'Dungeons & Dragons Online'. Here's an excerpt:|
Continuing our tour of the world of Eberron, Dungeons & Dragons Online does the arguably inevitable: it transfers the dice-rolling tabletop action of Dungeons & Dragons into the MMO arena.
It’s not an MMORPG, though, although its developers, Turbine, are drawing a rather fine distinction. One game “world” in D&D Online is a sort of pocket realm that can be inhabited by up to a thousand players. The idea here is to create a tighter community of gamers, and to allow you, the player, to get into the game much faster than you could otherwise.
