Warhammer Online

I'm really very excited, that Warhammer Online Age of Reckoning will be soon available :) Warhammer Online is based on Warhammer fantasy war game. When i was 12 years old i played all the time in Warhammer fantasy role play (with dices). The world of this game is very big, with humans, elves, dwarfs (humans live in Brettonia, Kislev or Empire - it’s like France, Russia and England, Elves are - Wood Elves or noble High Elves, Dwarfs lives near humans in all Old World)..The Old World is a place of order but there are places where forces of darkness and destruction are spreading - far away in the north, in the deserts sands, forces of Chaos rules. Undeads, Skavens, Lidardmen or Dark Elves they and Chaos are enemies of the free world.
Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning is a Realm versus Realm (RvR) game with two factions: Order and Destruction. Each faction contains three separate armies, each of which is further broken down into four career choices.
