I KNOW it would be hard. uf not next to impossible, but i have followthrough, and i know everything is possible. what is the general public’s view on this?
Fast forward to the present. The talented people have banded up to form Reverie World Studios, and their own version of a war game is called Dawn of Fantasy
. And today, HeavenGames is proud to announce the latest addition to our family, Dawn of Fantasy Heaven, as our way to honor and support the work which had their beginnings in our communities. We have a lot of enthusiastic staff on board for this site—who have worked very hard these past few weeks to launch the site with plenty of new content, events, competitions, and plans—and we hope you will enjoy our work in the months to come.
Without further ado, allow me to present: DAWN OF FANTASY HEAVEN
Please check our our site and gallery and drop us a line on our forums.

October 7, 2009 — HeavenGames LLC announced today that it has launched Dawn of Fantasy Heaven, a dedicated fansite for Reverie World Studios’ upcoming fantasy MMORTS for the PC, and eventually, the Xbox 360.
Begun at our very own Age of Kings Scenario Design forum in late 2001, Dawn of Fantasy is the fruition of a very dedicated group of rising developers who, through a process of countless hours of trial and error as unpaid volunteers throughout the majority of its development, have created one of the most spectacular games of all time. Dawn of Fantasy is one of the only MMORTS (Massively Multiplayer Online Real Time Strategy) titles and boasts a powerful scenario design editor and developer support second to none. Planned for a Spring 2010 release, Dawn of Fantasy is set in the mythical realm of Mythador and incorporates an innovative mixture of RPG and FPS elements as players engage in single-player or cooperative quests and wage annihilation on their foes. Players can play as three unique factions — Men, Elves, and Orcs — in their quest to conquer all of Mythador through powerful alliance and epic warfare.
Dawn of Fantasy Heaven is dedicated to featuring the greatest array of DoF articles and tutorials; events and competitions including a ladder, regular forum parties, and beta key contests; up-to-date news following the progress and updates on DoF and the beta; clan support, for those seeking to create or join a clan for online play; and close developer relations with many Reverie designers frequenting our forums. We hope you check out our site and engage in our upcoming events and discussions.
DoF Heaven will be staffed by a group of four very dedicated veterans. They are: ”Alex,“ Site Director; ”Blatant7,“ Strategy Administrator; ”Nacht Jaeger,“ Downloads Administrator; and, ”Xaph,“ Scenario Design & Modding Administrator. Each will be part of the early beta and will work to bring unique content as quickly as possible. A huge thank you goes out to Konstantin Fomenko and Reverie World Studios for their astounding level of support, the HG Executive Committee (EXCO) for making this all possible, ”Angel Zen“ for the beautiful site design and implementation, and ”newIdea“ for the logo design.
