Released: Summer 1999
A Rage of Mages 2 (ROM2) fad swept over Crayola Clan for a time. ROM2 was a peculiar realtime arcade/RPG game developed in Russia, if memory serves, which may have been descended from Gauntlet. It was particularly well-suited for Crayola Clan because player characters automatically fought back when monsters attacked, so, by placing your character in an area where monsters continually spawned, one could leave their computer running the game unattended for days on end and still gain levels. :) It was an excellent way to play while still working one's day job.
Eventually, various cheats took away the fun of the game.
