The thirty slots for the first beta filled up quickly!  We will likely start up a second beta game to start next week after we see how the start of the first beta goes on Thursday.  Given that many more people have registered than were able to join the first game, the second game will likely have a high player cap to make sure a lot of people get to try the game and help with testing.
