Clan Lord is the Macintosh's first massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG),[1] made by Delta Tao Software. It was started in the late 1990s[2] and is still going, with a regular update every 3 weeks. In 2001 it was voted one of top ten Mac games of all time in GAMES Magazine.[3] By the end of 2007, player participation dropped below 100 concurrently online. The game world and characters' options in it grow with each update.[4] The game encourages cooperation and community and has only minimal opportunities for player-vs.-player (PvP) activity. On January 17, 2009, it was announced that Delta Tao would no longer charge monthly fees for play.[5][6] Since then player numbers have increased from the previous low player base and it maintains a steady stream of online players.[citation needed]

As of 2006, there are Windows and Java ports maintained by the Arindal development team. The Windows client is also running under Linux using Wine.

Setting

Game characters have been exiled by the mad Emperor Mobius to the Lok'Groton Islands for "crimes" against the Empire. Characters are of seven races: Human, Dwarf, Sylvan, Halfling, Thoom, Ghorak Zo, and The People. Exiles may choose to pursue one of three professions: fighter, healer, or mystic, and may also choose sub-professions for the fighter class: Ranger, Champion or Blood-Mage. In addition to the dangers of the natural island wildlife, exiles must deal with other sentient beings, including the warlike Orgas, the Darshak pirates, the Undine (i.e., undead), and a group of ancient and powerful sorcerers.
