At WAR Again

It all started with an email.  I received an inquiry about a site related to my WAR Item DB, the Arsenal of WAR.  Turns out it was from the WAR: Return of Reckoning people which run the emulator/private server.  Well, it got me to reading about it and it actually looked like it was in a state that could be enjoyable.

I decided to give it a whirl.  I still had my WAR installation from when it shutdown ( :(  ) so it was a quick matter to get into the game.  I have to admit, I was pretty impressed.  It was very playable.  I did a few scenarios and fought in the Nordland RvR lake.  It was just like old times!

Now, the game is far from complete.  Right now, only Tier 1 is available ( CR 12, RR 20).  The PvE quests are in, as are two scenarios:  Gates of Ekrund and Nodenwatch.  It's a little buggy in places, but nothing that really took away my enjoyment.  Tier 2 is right around the corner I hear.

It's always neat when people put their minds to something and recreate something as complex as WAR.
