Such a great game once they got their servers stable. Was a rough release with the servers not able to handle the player load in large sieges. When it went free went back to it and had insane amounts of fun.
The player guild experience is the Shadowbane experience. Get involved with a good one and depth of gameplay becomes clear. Get involved with a bad one and you'll never get past the same old monster farming you've seen before. [July 2003, p.68]
