2. Elanthian News:

BLOODLUST: THE TABLES ARE TURNED!
Be brains behind the creatures you normally fight! For the first time
ever, players will be able to take over a creature's body, skills, and its
short, but glorious, death-filled life.  Over time you'll be able to
progress from simple creatures to more advanced and skillful ones. Join
your friends in planning and executing goblin invasions of Crossing!

BloodLust Version 1 opens this week, exclusively in DragonRealms Platinum
as a standard benefit for all Platinum subscribers. If you're up for the
challenge and are not already a Platinum subscriber, check out the
BloodLust and Platinum links on the DragonRealms website
(http://dragonrealms.net) for more details.

ELANTHIAN EXPERIENCE UPDATE!
With a slew of new features added to DragonRealms on September 1st, the
Elanthian experience is now richer and easier to master than ever before!
Here are some of the highlights:

* Learn the ways of the sword and the intricacies of effective combat
without the distractions in a newly created training and hunting area
(coming soon)!
* Download the first of the new picture packs and get your first look at
the unique inhabitants of DragonRealms, as well as crafty NPCs, Guild
Leaders, special areas, and much more.
* Start out on the right foot with the new DragonRealms Character Manager,
redesigned with the inexperienced player in mind to walk you through every
facet of Elanthian life.

In addition, you'll enjoy new role-playing award functionality, the first
official portraits of the races, and new books for the libraries. See NEWS
17 in-game for full details!

NEW EVENT CALENDARS!
Tired of running around the Crossing looking for the merchant, only to
find they're in Shard? Convinced that in-game events only happen when
you're not around? Fret no more! The new DragonRealms Calendar of Events
will help you keep on top of all the exciting activities around Elanthia!
