Dragon Tavern, a web based adventure game where everyone is a champion.. to some degree.. Explore the wilds, beat up monsters, steal their lunch money, and use it to buy a bigger stick. That's the life of all true adventurers! Create your very own today, and make a name for yourself as the most powerful in the land. What are you waiting for? There's treasure out there to loot!
In the Tavern...
From outside, the sound of music and rowdy behaviour, along with the occasional snippet of a tall tale can be heard flowing from inside the legendary Dragon Tavern. Famous for being situated between the three nearby great realms, and for a zero tolerance stance on conflict inside its walls or in the grounds immediately outside, where a range of shops, training facilities and merchants hoping to aquire exotic treasures from returning adventurers can be found.
The tavern itself is open at all hours, having a range of accomodation to suit all budgets and needs, as well as a range of fine food and drink to suit any taste.

- 24 character classes, spread across 3 realms!
- Happenings: Dynamic tracking and reporting of your exploits for others to marvel at.
After creating an account, the first choice you're presented with is which character you'd like to play. DT has a wide selection of character choices, with 8 classes in each of the 3 seperate realms. As far as this goes, there's no wrong choice you can make, with each of the classes having their own strengths and weaknesses. The other primary difference is what equipment layout you'll get, as well as the lists of equipment you'll use to improve your adventurer. Have a read of the different realms and classes, and just pick what sounds like your style. Remember you can have many characters so don't be afraid to try a large group of them.
Your first job as a champion of your realm is to use the TRAVEL option to get out into a location and start exploring. It's highly recommended that you start in Skyclaw Mountains or the Shattered Highlands as they're the most friendly for new adventurers. From there, you hit explore and watch as your character gets into battles with foes, defeats them and claims their treasure. Keep an eye on your wounds however! If you die you'll be sent back to the tavern with none of the items you've picked up since you last arrived...
Dragon Tavern, by Trident Games, takes a straightforward approach to the casual dungeon crawl. The game, like any RPG, is all about killing monsters to level your character. However, the approach is geared toward the total casual gamer and I found the simple, direct combat somewhat refreshing.
One of the most unique feature in Dragon Tavern is its "Hardcore Mode". For advanced players who reach level 20 with a normal character, the option to play a hardcore character is opened up. This is more of a fun game type for friends to compete with each other. Hardcore characters die permanently if they are defeated, and gain AP at twice the normal rate. They also are unable to buy advantages as well.
