About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.


'Roma Victor' - Beta Test Signup

Roma Victor is a massively multiplayer online roleplaying game (MMORPG) based on the Roman Empire, circa 180AD. Roma Victor features social interaction on a massive scale, freestyle and mission-led gameplay, one on one combat in the Coliseum, tactical warfare on the battlefields of Europe and a deeply rich and varied non-combat crafting and skill system.

Created by Brighton-based RedBedlam Ltd., Roma Victor is one of the few truly unique massively multiplayer experiences currently in development. Set in Roman-occupied Europe around the turn of the first millennium, the game offers players a chance to start out life as a Roman slave, working their way up the ranks to become a Gladiator, Legionary or even a wealthy noble or influential politician. Alternatively players can choose to be one of the 'free peoples' from the many distinctive cultures that live in opposition to the tyranny of Rome and its 'civilised' ways.

Either way, Romanophiles, budding Tony Robinsons and even more conventional gamers looking for a less conventional experience are bound to get a kick out of the game's take on one of the most important periods in history, whether through the realistic combat model, the authentic crafts or just by soaking up the atmosphere of a time when brawny men goring one-another with spears was considered jolly good entertainment.

When the game is finally made available in 2005, it will do away with conventional subscription fees and instead allow people to support the game as they see fit. All of this can be read about at If you'd like to be one of the early testers to help shape the game's course before release and make it the best it can possibly be, head on to the signup page right here, where you'll find an entry form. Applications close on January 1st 2005.
