Default My opinion


Shadowbane... Horizons...



Shadowbane definitely has the perfect guild system. No faction standing between races and stuff just guild vs guild, city vs city. There's no evil because you choose an evil race, there's only evil if you PK or roleplay an evil char/guild.

You don't have to join a PC runned guild, there are also NPC runned guilds.

You have special races ala Horizons which will become available once you have enough /played time.

Shadowbane has the best looking screenshots without doubt. *drools over the mino pics*


Horizons has a cool faction standing system. The ability to become KoS to a person, family or KoS to the total race and vice versa, perhaps you're the first of your race to be allowed.

It doesn't look like you'll be able to have a guild with your friends unless they choose the same race or at least not a race who's in war with yours. Thats the only thing that worries me.

Race wars are server side generated. For example, this month humans are in war with dwarves, next month they're in peace.

There are special races like Demons, Dragons, Angels, Devils and Vampires which will only become available when you get lucky. At this point with char generation you have 1 slot for 1 special race, you'll have to throw a dice when you're unlucky (a race you don't like) you can delete it but have to wait a week for another try.



Anyways, both games look to become hella cool. Both games still have to go Beta. Shadowbane is about to go beta, Horizons has another few months to go before beta.

My tuppence.

Prefer Horizons since the PvP element is more structured and has some sense to it.You have blood war(?), races that are always KoS to each other,and race wars where PvP is turned on and off,often depending on a storyline.Downside is that it is still a long way from release.

Shadowbane does have the nice guild features,BUT you will still end up with, to me, nonsensical battles where eg Paladins of the same faith fight each other just because they are in a different guild.

Well, dunno about you guys, but I'll probably eventually end up owning a copy of all of them just to see what they're like. Shadowbane does look like a really nice guild system and pretty nice in general. 'twill be nice to have some more info on all though, heh, Asherons Call only came out in England this week (says he lost somewhere nowhere near where he began, being chased by something big). Anyone want an ultima box+CD with no free month ? As to same faith fighting, opposing guilds normally have opposing viewpoints, and different factions of the same religions always end up having problems. Looking forward to seeing them all anyhow.

Default Horizons


A lot has changed in the making of Horizons. Right now you are able to make a 'rare' character, like the ones Ogmuk mentioned above and you wont have to role a dice or anything for it. Yes, evil chars cant group or guild with good chars.. but cmon its a role playing game. The screen shots you see on the AE page are not the final product, they were done using a prototype engine used for investers to see a little of what to expect. Im not sure if you know but HORIZONS world will be 2500 square miles of ground to explore. That is 24x the size of Norrath. There is NO static spawns, and no classes/levels. It is a skill based game. They are currently planning to add some things into the game that have never before been seen in ANY MMORPG to date.

If you want more great and up to date info on Horizons I suggest checking out:
