Winter Warriors (fantasy) Lion Of Macedon + Dark Prince (fictional history) Dark Moon (fantasy) The Wolf In Shadow + The Last Guardian + Bloodstone (western/future sorta) The Sword In the Storm + Midnight Falcon (fictional history)
All by David Gemmell. They are short but very good character driven stories.
I have never ever played a MMO or an MMORPG though I have looked into it. As soon as I have finished "The Witcher" number 1 I will be trying to download LOTORO (Lord of the Rings Online) which will be my first experience in this gaming genre. I have done a bit of research and this seems to be the most viable, taking into account the subscription cost and download cap I have etc.
