I could not help but associate dungeons and dragons with neo-classical rock. I think of Yngwie Malmsteen and how his music moves like the way the characters in MMORPG’s . But with Dungeon Runners we are in for a new treat. What with hip hop gnomes complete with the gangsta attitude? Dungeon Runners is a Free Fantasy MMORPG where you could explore a 3D fantasy world of dungeons and monsters and exciting battles with incredible weapons. You can choose to be a Fighter, a Mage, or a Ranger. Discover new skills along the way as you journey deep into the mysteries of the dungeon. You can fight as a pack, alone or with a team of online friends. But what gives this game a different twist is the Bling Gnome which is some sort of a helper gnome that follows your character around and pick up all the gold dropped on the groundto makethings easier for your character. The Bling Gnome can even be asked to pick up other items (anything that’s not rainbow-colored or purple) and convert it to gold. This game glued me to the computers for quiet a time, it is addicting.
