Wow... NES Quest for the Avatar was one of my favorite RPGs. It's time to go looking for moonroot again! I'm also very curious about the pricing model, is it subscription based?

From a recent Joystiq preview

Combat brings its own rewards in the form of bronze, silver, and gold keys, all of which can be used to unlock an area's loot chest. The type of key used determines the quality of the loot in the chest. Bronze keys are standard drops that you can pick up from slain enemies (or buy via the in-app store). Silver keys can be purchased in-app or you can convert 10 bronze ones. Gold keys are only available as in-app purchases. Ultima Forever's in-app purchase model isn't inherently offensive for a free-to-play title, but it's certainly not a balanced approach to doling out loot.

If the game really takes off, you can trust EA will implement timers.
