Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach is an MMORPG that recreates the essence of the classic pen-and-paper role-playing experience with an emphasis on quests. Features in the game include customizable characters, dungeons filled with traps, PvP, monsters and stories from the Eberron campaign setting, an on-screen 20-sided die, and a dungeon master. The game also features solo and party-based quests, integrated voice chat, and action-oriented combat. It uses the rules of the 3.5 edition of the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing system.
On September 09, 2009 the game was relaunched with a US-only, free-to-play makeover and it was rebranded as Dungeons & Dragons Online Unlimited. All existing subscribers were turned into VIP members with access to additional content and a large number of points to buy in-game items.
Along with the update Module 9 was introduced, which raised the level cap, added two new storylines, overhauled the combat system and introduced the Favored Soul. Module 9 was also released as a regular free update to European subscribers.
