I’ve been tooling around in the Dungeons & Dragons Online: Lamannia Free to Play beta recently, and I must say, it is a whole lot of fun. Budster Richards, my human cleric, roams from dungeon to dungeon, clearing them on the much welcomed ‘solo’ difficulty. I recently completed the Sacrifices quest in the ruins of an old Cannith Aqueduct. I was able to rescue the mayor’s daughter, as well as 10 other villagers and I also defeated a skeletal mage. The mage was a trick to find, and I found him on accident while following my natural curiosity. All in all, this game is quite the contrast to my usual World of Warcraft. It’s more action oriented, surprisingly, yet still has the heart of D&D. I recommend either joining the beta or signing up when the full Free to Play build goes live August 6th. Look for me there!
