if I was a multimillionare, I'd buy it just to say I own my own island

Could pay off for him if the game is successful with a real money market system. My boss keeps trying to get me to play EQII, but I know I'd become even more of a hermit than I am now. Will that stop me? Probably not

Neither did I until I played Guild Wars, a very good game, also did I mention there is no monthly fee.

A one time payment of 55 bucks for the game and your good to go... I like it ALOT

Theses no monthly fee? lol.....Guild Wars suddenly got VERY tempting. But....its not released yet, that is if I'm thinking of the same Guild Wars as you:

The Website I'm thinking of.' ">http://www.guildwars.com/default.html

That one? Says its not released till 2005. Where did you manage to buy it? Pre-order?

I couldnt find anything on the website about monthly costs. If there isnt going to be any, I might just buy that game.

Yea that link is for one and the same guild wars, well they have monthly beta events thats one weekend a month (the first weekend of the month) testing till its supposed release in feburary.

There will not be any monthly fee of any kind, that is its major strong point so be sure to join in, its a very fun game!
