As you read this article, I will be in San Francisco, attending GDC to bring you coverage for both MMORPG.com and RTSGuru.com. I'm writing this on the morning of February 28th. The NHL Trade Deadline coverage plays in the background and my passport sits beside me on my desk, eager to get back on the road. Yes, it's been a while, but this week we are going to be doing a Quiz based solely on one game. With all of the hearsay and gossip and speculation about Age of Conan potentially going Free-To-Play (or Freemium, or non-subscription, what have you), I hereby give you: The King Conan Quiz Power Hour in Association with Drew Wood! Enjoy.
