Dreamlords has an asynchronous online model where an infinite amount of players exist in the same universe where fierce battles are fought between players over the precious lands.

Dreamlords is much like playing a traditional RTS game online with the added enhancement of a persistent world filled with exploration, questing and wars for conquest.
