What is Lineage?
Lineage is a online RPG, or a graphical mud.
Players from all over the world can play together and facing real human enemy.
This game is simular to Ultima Online. Right now the game is free.
Help Elfy.net afloat! Pay me $1000 per month so I can keep the site on!
Ok, I am totally not serious. At the peak of this site, there is around maybe 1200 visitor per day. This generate around 5GB of data transfer per month. Guess what? I am just using those $10 web hosting plan and I never have any problem. It is so sad to see those site to become pay per view site. I don't know the traffic about other site, but if even lvault (old time popular site) can be hosted in a FREE web hosting (hypermart), I can't beleive other to charge money for their site. Given the amount of player in Lineage, you can easily guess the traffic of any web site. Yes maybe now is more, but certainly no one will ever need a dedicated server, not to mention I don't see any SQL stuff aorund too. In web hosting dedicated server is very expensive, so does SQL server. But do you have to use them? It just make no sense to have a dedicated server with a traffic of 2000 visitor a day.
If you want to use this site's content, please feel free to email me. However if your site is pay-only, don't ask. I WON'T LET YOU DO THAT. The resource I have is for Lineage players to obtain them freely, not for paying site to obtain a profit with my resource.
Ok, I do admit that once I did put some ad banner on the site. Did you ever notice it? Because I put them in the bottom of the site, so you won't be greeted by stupid ad. Anyways I removed those shortly after as well. Only thing I haven't remove is the LinkExchange banner at teh bottom of page. Those are for me to promote this site, as they generate $0.000000 income.
Hello. If you visit the official site you know if you own a fan site you can play Lineage without paying. you only have to update the site once a month, and your site cannot copy other.
However, I think whoever make www.lineagethebloodpledge.com should pay the to play. Why? Look at the links:
The web master just copy my work, delete me from fan site list. Do you know who is the webmaster/GM in Lineage? Hint: he was a webmaster of a popular Lineage site before.
Hi, long time no see. Lineage is finally going into commercial, and the monthly price is... $15USD. I think it is a bit high, especially when EverQuest, Ultima Online is selling for $10 for the game, and $10 a month. With also many new massive PRG being developed like Dawn and even its own Korean competitor, Red Moon, things will be very tough for Lineage.
But, as a player, the most important thing is which game fits you. After I played EQ for awhile, this is something that I find out.
I will play EQ over Lineage if...
However, Lineage can appeals player who....
I haven't play Lineage for a long time. Here is some screenshot I found for the Lineage 2001 fan faire in Korea. Thank you Millerna for the photo. Please do not copy any of them before asking, thanks.

12 new wallpapers are added into the wallpaper section.
I am playing EverQuest for now. EverQuest is a much more complete game than Lineage. EQ gets more class/race combination, and you can choose your own status. There are more items, spells, monster and place to visit. However it is far more complicated than Lineage.
I wander in town for 1 hour before I can find the gate to get out. Also the interface is just not so good, and chatting is much more convience in Lineage.
Just two hours after I post the news yesterday, the problems are fixed and now the Dragon Valley update is officially available. Download the patch here and extract it into Lineage directory to avoid the 4688 files update.
Humm... 2048 HP with 35692 MP?
The update is "partially" up after some delays. For some reason I get some strange stat from the new interface. I will even crash the game if I try to login my LV6 character.
What make it strange is I can login with both Lineage 1.44 and 1.50. And you won't get auto update from Lineage, and the official site post no update patch either. When I create a sorceress character it will shows up as an female elf in the game, and she cannot attack. I think NCSoft is still working/testing on the update so it is not officially release yet.
Yesterday the official site announced today we will get the Lineage 1.50 update with new interface, Dragon Valley, female wizzrd, and, new items and monsters as usual. As usual, it is delayed again. If you already download the 1.50 patch, you are out of luck. Your Lineage will crash. Official site made a wonderful solution, you can simply wait until Monday November 6, when they are SUPPOSED to implement the change, or download and install the old Lineage 1.44 again. Anyways, it's always your choice.
