Recently, I signed up to Reign of Blood, to see what all fuss was about. Right away, it’s easy to tell why vampire fans are going to enjoy it so much. Many vampire horror fans love roleplay, and a lot of text roleplayers, –especially Vampire: the Masquerade players, will love the roleplay-friendly atmosphere, and the ability to choose clans.
There’s a huge back-story, very involved, –once again, a very big benefit to those who are looking for great vampire roleplay, without having to jump through a bunch of hoops on a roleplay forum, or deal with the undesirables in chat clients. The background on the game:
“The Great Covens have been fighting since before the count of time… and here their battle continues to rage. Join them to become stronger, but chose with care, for the memories of the Immortal are long, and betrayal not likely forgotten or forgiven. Explore an open setting and limitless options for development and advancement. But, beware; Immortality does not come without its price.”
The ‘Great Covens’ are actually different sects of vampires, that you eventually get to align with, once you’ve learned to navigate the site; there are a ton of other areas and shops to visit, unlike other MMO’s out there, there’s never shortage of places to go and people to see in RoB. Plus, it’s freee! You don’t have to pay a monthly or weekly fee, though you can definitely donate.
