What is BOL?

BOL stands for Birth of Legends which is a Massively-Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game. What that means is that BOL is a game where many people from around the world can get together online and interact in a game environment. BOL is still in development and is currently the sole effort of Mark Troutt, a high-school student who is an aspiring game developer. More in-depth information about the game can be found by clicking on the links to the right.

And now to answer some basic questions about BOL:

Q: What age group is BOL made for?
A: I'm making BOL first and formost for me and my friends, so it will be targeted towards teens. Anyone who wants to should be able to play though as the gameplay isn't terribly difficult and nothing is planned to be too graphic that others might find overly offensive.

Q: Will the game be free?
A: You will always be able to play for free but eventually there will be areas that only paying players will have access to. All money given to BOL will be used to maintain the servers, this website, and the development staff.

Q: What will the minimum requirements be?
A: I'm aiming for BOL to be played on a windows 98 and above computer with 512 mb of ram, a basic 64 mb graphics card, and a 28 kb/s internet connection. Of course, graphically BOL will look much better with more ram and a better graphics card but players with only the minimum requirements should be able to play without any lag.

Q: When will BOL be finished?
A: I don't know. It all depends on when the server comes back online and/or when the network code works as it should. This could be in five days or a month, so I have no real way of knowing.

Q: Do you need/want any help?
A: Yes! I'll take any and all help I can get. If you want to help but are not sure how send an email to me and I'll tell you ways you can help. Ways that you can help include giving feedback on the site and forums, sumitting 3d content, and creating music for BOL.

Q: Are there any questions that your missing/not thinking of?
A: Yes, there are probably hundreds of questions that I haven't answered here. If you have a question please tell me by either leaving a comment, telling me on the forums, or emailing me.
