Re: Upcoming Changes.

I would be amazed if certain guilds and races aren't crippled by this change (obligatory acknowledgement that we haven't seen it in action yet).

Genesis mentioned on Chrome Unboxed

I know Chromebook users are almost second-class citizens in the minds of a lot of our hardcore players, but Chromebooks are more popular than ever, and Genesis just got mentioned today on a pretty big ChromeOS-nerd website: https://chromeunboxed.com/kick-it-old-school-muds-for-your-chromebook .
