Inferno is one you might consider -
www.ke9.com

It used to be a pay-for-play but now it's pay-optional if you choose to join a guild (if I understand how it works now).

You don't have to join a guild to advance, although increasing skill strengths is easier with a guild affiliation.

Inferno isn't an RPI, but it is RP enforced, with scheduled and unscheduled staff-created plotlines you can participate in.

There aren't any levels, but there are skill classes and OOC coded devices (builds and experience points) that allow you to gain in skill ability.

The RP, in my experience, is pretty awesome, there are some fine roleplayers there. It's also newbie-friendly and though there isn't any newbie "school" there is an OOC area of the game where you first log in, where you can communicate with other players to get help and ask questions. The characters don't exist in the OOC area - players exist there as their account names instead and are described as "a wandering traveller" or some such.

I haven't played since before they changed the pay-to-play aspect of it, so I don't know how things are working out for people who don't want to pay. But that's something you can find out for yourself by logging into the game and creating an account. At the very least, you'll get a sense of hope in that there are games with a good amount of H&S and RP combined. At the very best, you'll love it and become a member of their community.

i dont think that will work for me... even though it is not pay per play i think it would be an unbalanced game if those that will pay will get something in return... but thanks for the reply by the way....

might i add a player driven economy...

Fair enough - being in a guild in Inferno gives you a "group" your character shares something with. But NOT being in a guild gives you a different "group" that "set of people who are not in a guild." So there's no imbalance there. In addition, you can still advance, you can still add ranks to your skills list, without being in a guild. You merely have to train in the public trainer instead of the guild trainer. There was at least one character that I know of, back when I used to play it, who wasn't in any guild at all, and did just fine. That was back when everyone had to pay.

Inferno does have (to some extent because of the crafting system which is pretty neato) a player-driven economy.

1) It's roleplay enforced.

2) It has literally millions of rooms.

3) It's getting bigger

4) It features everything from tailoring to evocative magic.

5) It has a skill-based system as well as ranged combat.

6) It will always be free.

Towers of Jadri

Fascinating code, the RP ranges from good to stellar, and most everyone is friendly. OOC that is.

Davairus is an unknown quantity at this point
Abandoned Realms

Used to have 40-50 players online til I stopped playing for 3 months, RL stuff. I came back to find it down to like 20-30, which hurt.... but anyway, I'm aiming for what you're looking for, and if you find or think of a feature you needed that's missing, I'll see what we can do for you.
