I am sure some of you may be familiar with this game but for those of you who are not, I wanted to introduce to all of you this game that is currently in limited development. The company (Forged Chaos) is currently run by 3 developers and their ideas for this game are truly unique and inspiring. And I am not referring to 'unique' as being something really odd/weird but really going to back to the old school roots of MMORPG's and making the game incredibly better. With these ideas, they are going to start a 'kickstarter' campaign (which is anticipated to begin within 2-3 weeks from today) to bring the game into full development but only if the kickstarter is successful. To give you an idea of what the game will be similar to (in terms of looks/movement/style), it is going to be very similar to mount and blade. Left click = attack, right click = block. 3rd person view and a reticule like mount and blade for attacking/aiming and the features only get better!
One of the most controversial features of the game is perma-death which has a lot of people immediately turning away from the game when those words are seen. What I can tell you from learning about this game is that ALL of the features of this game are designed to compliment perma-death but also balance it as well. You really need to learn about the game to understand which is why I ask that you try to keep an open mind and take a few minutes to read this post from the Dev who talks about perma-death and its benefits. And just so you guys know - this is not a '1 life to live' kinda of perma-death. As it stands now, it's 100 lives (life-counters) with the 100th LC being the end. Here is the link.
Once you read that, check out this website. This website talks about nearly every feature of ToA in the form of books and all that information is pulled from posts/comments and podcasts directly from the dev's themselves. I think the more you read about these features, the more you will like the game and be more open to the idea of perma-death. Here is that resource.
And here is the official website if you want to join the forums and say hello. The community is full of awesome people - little to no trolls and great conversation.

and lastly a video that was posted on youtube to show you what night-time is going to be like in this game. They are really living up to their word when they say night time is going to be extremely dangerous and scary as hell. Travel at night time at your own risk! (This video is PRE-ALPHA). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yd-8hY6fuj0&feature=youtu.be
Thanks for you time and enjoy!
