I received this Microsoft press release via email today and thought some of you might find interest in it. It concerns one of the larger MMORPGs out there today, Asheron’s Call:

    Microsoft today announced that “Should The Stars Fall,” the latest event in the dynamic world of Asheron’s Call, is now underway. This month’s event marks the one-year anniversary of the hugely successful, massively multiplayer online role-playing game. To celebrate the milestone, Microsoft is offering free months of gameplay to players who refer a friend to Asheron’s Call, between November 14, 2000 and January 8, 2001.

    The Asheron’s Call Referral Program is a great way to introduce friends and family to the exciting world of Dereth and its ever-changing landscape. To take advantage of the program, gamers must first be regular subscribers of Asheron’s Call. Players can then refer up to three friends, and receive one free month of gameplay for each referral. In order for the referral to be valid, the new players must purchase the game and register to be a monthly subscriber. The Referral Program runs from November 14, 2000 through January 8, 2001.

    The year anniversary event offers an experience unlike any other. The world of Dereth has changed with each and every month — be it with the additions of new lands to explore, new creatures to battle, or new quests on which to embark. Towns, and seasons, have come and gone. Players have helped to advance the history of the world, fending off invasions of Shadows… and their eerily traveling Spires. Considering the events of the past year, much can be expected!

    Asheron’s Call is a massively multiplayer role-playing game playable exclusively on ( that draws together thousands of players within a dynamic, 3-D online world. Players can create truly unique characters by choosing between extensive combinations of visual appearance, attributes and skill sets. Asheron’s Call immerses players in an intense role-playing environment where they must compete or cooperate with thousands of other online players. An extensive system of allegiance and influence greatly enhances social interaction. The online nature of the game facilitates an evolving and dynamic adventure inside a consistent universe. The game will never be solved because there will always be more areas to explore and quests to complete.
