Ditto the Monster looks at the world of family friendly online games from a Fabricated American perspective

Ditto is still having fun with Asheron’s Call

So Ditto is still playing ‘Asheron’s Call’ a bit – it’s challenging, playing an MMORPG that started 17 years ago!  There are a lot of things we kind of take for granted in modern online games that just don’t exist in Asheron’s Call, like quest guides and such…  Today I just ran across the world in a random direction – no portals, no loading screens, just open landscape, mountains, rivers, and the occasional strange monster who wants to eat me; why do they always want to eat me?

I did find a town and talked to some folks, got to know the vendors, etc… – for such an old game, most people are very high level and I just made level 6, but the areas closest to the town seem appropriate to lower levels, so I didn’t get eaten (though it was close, I’ll admit).

So are my fans interested in more of this exploration?   Do people want to see more old-school gaming in Asheron’s Call on a regular basis?  Or should I just stick to Wizard101 and Pirate101 and do more adventuring there?  I’m looking forward to getting feedback, what do my fans want to see more of?  Let me know!

    This post makes me glad that I found Wizard101 first. I can’t imagine not having a quest helper!
