For the past few weeks I’ve been immersed in the world of Dreamlords, which launched in the middle of last month. If you haven’t heard of the game before now, Dreamlords is an independently developed online game from Swedish developer Lockpick Entertainment, but it’s not you typical MMO. Lockpick has been looking to expand the MMO beyond the RPG and into the game space of real time strategy, with Dreamlords being the final product of this endeavor. Although I haven’t played the game quite enough to make a full review, today I’d like to provide a basic first look at the game’s systems and features.
Dreamlords is set in a shattered world where people live on chunks, or islands, of reality floating in a foggy mist. Your dreamlord, your avatar in the world, is a giant glowing being who towers over regular humans and has recently awakened to be the savior of the people of your Patria, you territory. The game has three factions, the Thul, the Nihilim, and the Covenant. The Thul are a beast like warrior race, and are designed to be the most straight forward if combat is what you live for. The Nihilim are a group of magic users and weaker in combat bet be

Never...As his name keeps echoing in her mind, her thirst for revenge grows stronger. She stumbles upon the remnants of Elysion, the long gone paradise, and suddenly senses his presence. He is here.
Somewhere...The sky starts to tremble as she orders her army to attack your lands. There will be no mercy until he has been found. The first invasion is imminent and there is no telling what the future will hold.

Lockpick Entertainment has announced that they will be compensating premium members for a bit of confusion surrounding trait points.
As you know there has been quite some confusion about premium accounts and unavailable trait points. The confusion has to a large extent been due to vague communication on our part and therefore we will compensate you in the following way:
Anyone who is a Premium member at 2PM (Swedish time) on Monday July 7th 2008 will receive all their unavailable points to their available balance at that time. People going premium between this point and then will get half the points now (as it is currently implemented)
After this, the bonus we had of retroactively receiving half the trait points will be removed. Unavailable points will not even be visible to the player until we have added the feature of paying tribute for unavailable traitpoints.
As this might seem unfair to players who paid for premium earlier (even if they now too get all unavailable points) we will add a number of free days to their account equal to how many days ago (from July 3rd) they went premium.
We also got Click and Buy to make a few changes for us in their automatic fraud detection system

Drawing on experience from the development of our previous game Dreamlords but also through feedback and suggestions from our much devoted community, I’m convinced we’ve created the game we initially set out to produce last fall”, said David Rosén CEO and Executive Producer. “The Reawakening is in every perspective a game by gamers – for gamers and now I can only hope the players will have as much fun playing it as we’ve had developing it.&rdContinue Reading
