If you know me, you probably know that I have a weird fascination with alternate history. You know, the daydreams of historians when they're not rewriting the past to suit the latest trends. "What if?" my mind wonders, especially when it comes to MMOs. You see, for every game that actually makes...

Salvatore and every SOE employee they can get their hands on. We think they're getting the hang of the whole world-domination thing, but what about th...
