|GameZone have posted a preview based on their beta experiences. Here's a snip:|
The game sports nine playable character races, which include dwarves, elves, humans, fiends and dragons. As the latter players will first be limited to the ground but as time moves along, their wings will get stronger and they will eventually be able to fly. However, dragons are not the community-oriented species that, say, humans are, and tend to be a little more solitary - well, at the least greedy, simply because their status is related to the size of each dragonís horde. Istaria itself is an amazing land, with floating islands in the sky, huge cities, and a lot of wilderness areas. The world is 32k by 40k in size, and will take quite a while to traverse. Dragons can fly across it in about 1 and Ĺ hours.
