The Realm Online, originally known simply as The Realm, is a second generation MORPG (multiplayer online role playing game). The Realm Online is still being played by a small number of players, and is known as one of the few MMORPGs that is still dial-up friendly and easy to play.
Originally published by Sierra On-Line, it was abandoned by that company because of its unfavorable comparison to Ultima Online and EverQuest. It was next taken up for a short time by a company called World Opponent Network which was also owned by Sierra On-line, then Codemasters, and presently is a Norseman Games production.
It has been criticized for its unforgiving character creation: a character that hasn't been created optimally can't reach maximum potential.
In 2008, the server would still reach an online population of 100-200 players.
