On Tuesday, June 28th, at 8PM EST/1AM GMT BG Leaders Luvly and Smeger will be running a playtest on Pendragon to see what the upcoming Patch 1.121 brings for zerg and group fights as the realms go head to head!
Everyone is welcome to take part, the more the merrier, so bring your characters out and kill, kill, kill!!
To get involved: create a new character on Pendragon, or copy your existing characters from Ywain. Instructions on how to copy your characters can be found here, and it's best you do it ahead of time so you're all set up and ready to go for Tuesday night! Tester NPC's can be found in the capital cities for each realm.
As always, we'll be there to osberve, chat, and help :)
We are very grateful for the assistance of the community, and we look forward to seeing you on Pendragon tomorrow night!

The Pendragon Test Server is being changed to the Free-for-All PvP ruleset for the remainder of the week. It will be changed back to the normal ruleset by Saturday morning. This is to facilitate communication and testing across realms.
Applications for joining our Knight program or participating on our internal boards are once again open!
Before filling out the application, here are some descriptions of each position:
Knight of the Roundtable
Knights are a volunteer position that receives a comped account and involves signing a Non-Disclosure Agreement as they are generally the first to know about upcoming development plans.
Primarily, Knights will be expected to lead scheduled in-game events, host Q&As, create written or video guides, stream, and generally interface with the community in a positive, organizer role.
Secondarily, Knights are also expected to participate in internal forum discussions, bring game-related issues to developer attention, help test new changes on the Pendragon test-server, and to act in a mature, constructive manner whenever interfacing (within their capacity as a Knight) with each other, development, or the community.
Knights are required to be active and interact with the community in and out of DAoC.
Internal Forum Member
Internal Forum members are a volunteers that generally contribute to and provide feedback to the developmental direction of the game.
Members are expected to be constructive and interact with each other in a positive manner, even when disagreements occur.
There are no expectations for internal board members to participate or run community events, but it's also not forbidden!
