from Lords Online
, a MMO set to begin Europe & North American region Alpha testing later this year. Lords Online is an elaborate SLG game that is set in a medieval style land that is in constant conflict. It features administrative controls, alliance building and hero-nurturing systems blended with classic AD&D rules. Distinguishing itself from SLG games that have come before it, the combat in Lords Online enables players to be in command of a battle instead of placing their entire faith in the number of troops sent into battle. It also allows players to devise flexible strategies for different combat situations.
