Going since 1989, Avalon is the first of its kind -- much imitated, but never bested. Spawned from that eldest of realms, the First Age is an image of the distant past: fast, brutal, lively. Here is an extreme world of dragons, princes and engines of war. Imagine a place like real life, where you have no boundaries except those you set. You cannot buy your way to the top; you must have ability, vision and strength, because, no other place is like here. In politics, warfare, personal combat, skills, shopkeeping, cities, deities, First Age excels. It is a fast-paced, real-time environment where anything is possible. Will you be one of the next legendary figures of the realm?
