A shame you haven't played it - we had the public alpha announced here -- but not too many people from here played it. To those who did: Thanks again, you rock! To everyone else, make sure to join the fun next time!

Check out Dungeon Deities! It's amazing and will make you happy, successful and almost certainly more attractive! It might be true!
