A new preview is out - this time ONRPG.com, one of the biggest Free to Play directories, took a look at Runes of Magic and has come up with a nice verdict:
"Runes of Magic is going to provide a fun game with the usual features of most MMORPGs plus some nice innovative additions. [...] Since it is now in Open Beta and the characters created during this phase will remain after the official launch, this is a perfect time to try it out and even get a head start."

RoM on the Curse Network
The Curse Network has added a new subsection to its selected collection of games: rom.curse.com
The first project is to create a comprehensive database of Runes of Magic User Interface Add-Ons. Everyone who has already created an add-on is invited to upload their project here: rom.curseforge.com/create-project/
The goal is to create "the biggest addon database out there" - thanks to its easy accessibility and the clear categorisation, your add-ons can be easily found and used.
Curse and Curseforge also offer a wide range of other services and functionalities that should considerably support a wide range of add-on developers.
