Ce.....lebrate good times! Come on! Let's have a celebration!
24 hours of Open Beta and everything is in ship-shape: The Item Shop is working fine, the log-in servers are working perfectly and the servers are filled to the brim with players.
So it's a good time for a little Community Spotlight.
Technical Information and Server Status
We have the first external Server Status site - Mimmox, our valued RoM Mentor has put together a site with a server status monitor and a lot of useful information on several technical aspects of the game.

New Pre-OB Reviews
TenTonHammer (EN) and Mondes Persistans (FR) have published fresh Previews on their sites.
The TenTonHammer preview sums it up like this: "I enjoyed the quests because they made a concerted effort to craft a story that expanded to a more global view the longer I played, [...] When all is said and done, [...] writing this article only made me want to play it again."
The reviewer at Mondes Persistants sums it up nicely by saying that RoM is a good choice for MMORPG fans and is a fair competitor to the mainstream market MMORPGs. If you speak French, check it out here.
PvP Ruleset now live on the site
We have compiled a bit of hard data and basic rules for all you PvP fans - did you know how much reputation you lose when you defeat a "good" character or how much you earn for killing this evil demon?
For the beginners, who want to check out how Player vs. Player fights work in Runes of Magic, we have a list of basic rules and guidelines.
Take a look at the Game Infos / PvP section.

Runes of Magic is in Open Beta - and there still might be some things that could be better, skills that could be improved or quests that take you a bit longer than expected...
