Aeria Games, who launched their North American Dream Of Mirror Online beta earlier this week, is readying another MMO beta test for launch later this month. Shaiya is one of the most popular MMORPG's in Korea (aren't they all?), featuring a healthy dose of fantasy RPG swords and sorcery in a battle between the Union of Fury and the Alliance of Light. They promise epic realm vs realm combat , tons of PvP for those so inclined, and interesting concepts like bootleg warehouses where members of opposing factions can meet and exchange wares. The website also mentions executions, which I can only dream is a handy new way of dealing with griefers. The Shaiya beta starts on November 26th, with signups currently being accepted at http://shaiya.aeriagames.com.
