    Anyone got any ideas on a free MMORPG my friends and I could play? We're pretty much sick of what we know of, and we're looking for a few choices before we decide for sure.

    We've tried MapleStory and Runescape. Both of which got quite boring after a while...

    The group at this point is 2 (maybe 3) girls and 4 (maybe 5) guys.

    Any and all help is appreciated.

    Thanks
    SB

    I wish I could help you. I'm not to familiar with the 'free' MMO's. As they say, you get what you pay for.

    You've kinda used up the only two that I know about. You could install the "free" island of EQ2. You can never leave that area or go past level 10, but it is free to play.

    Whoa, you have girls in the party? Anyways, I can't think of anything else besides RE and MS, but I think there are some trials for free.

    It's not that unusual. I play with a few Husband and Wife groups in LOTRO.

    Guild Wars. You have to buy the game, but there's no monthly fee.

    I'd go with what kickback said, guildwars was a lot of fun, I actually liked it much more the World Of Warcraft.

    9Dragons and Rappelz are two free online RPG's. The two main problems right now is that a lot of the content is still incomplete and they, like many 3D games of this style, play almost exactly the same.

    The other problem is that moderation is not as well done as in pay games so expect a larger volume of idiots.

    GW is a lot prettier than WoW, but more limited, and it gets boring faster. Worth the price though.

    Other games to try include:

    Kingdom of Loathing - A free online parody RPG drawn in stick art and played in a web browser. The downside is you can't cooperate with other players in combat.

    Space Cowboy Online - I've been meaning to try this out for a long time. It's a free sci-fi space combat action RPG.

    Exteel - Another sci-fi RPG that looks promising (mecha this time). Unfortunately the open beta has been delayed indefinitely. Err, I guess this isn't really a game to try yet, but might be sometime in the future.

    PlaneShift - A MMORPG that's actually strongly centered on role-play. It has a lot of promise, but the game is still in alpha right now and is not a complete game by a long shot yet... but still playable.

    Yeah archlord is free and you can download it from Codemasters no need to buy anything its ok but tedious and repeative. however the archlord battles seem to be fun.

    I'm also look for a good MMORPG and a new group to play with send a PM when you decide and maybe we can join up.

    I got bored of GW really fast. To easy to get to max level with max armor.

    I did the $200 Lifetime subscription to Lord of the Rings Online. Never have to pay a monthly fee again. Though I don't think they offer that option anymore.

    Man, if City of Heroes/Villains offered that I'd drop two C-notes in a heartbeat.

    Check out http://www.onrpg.com/

    They have lists of Free MMORPGs. Some are the same free games mentioned in this thread and are pretty good, while others are pretty terrible.
