Perl modules of online MMORPG

What happened to MTG_Studio?
I was distraught to see that my favorite tool to manage a Magic: The Gathering card collection has been suspended (probably by Wizard of the Coast). Hopefully it is sadly temporary (that's what Beaker keeps telling me anyway) but I will not bet much on that. If anyone has news, please let me know.

That event prompted me to wonder if there was any module on CPAN dealing with MTG.
I was surprised not to find any, so I may just have to do something about that.

MMORPG love from Perl?
On the other hand, I found a few modules related to massively multi player role playing games.
  • World Of Warcraft
- Games::WoW::Armory - Access to the WoW Armory
- Bot::BasicBot::Pluggable::Module::WoWPVP - Fetch information about pvp grades for World Of Warcraft
- WWW::Wow::RealmStatus - The great new WWW::Wow::RealmStatus!
- WoW::Wiki - Perl extension to parse WoW wikki markup
  • Lord of the Rings Online
- There is no Perl module yet but a LOTRO Web API exists!
  • EverQuest
- Games::EverQuest::LogLineParser - Perl extension for parsing lines from the EverQuest log file.
- Other Perl scripts exist to complement the LogLineParser module
  • Eve Online
- Games::EveOnline::API - A simple Perl wrapper around the EveOnline XML API.
- WebService::EveOnline -- a wrapper intended to (eventually) provide a useful interface to the MMORPG game, "Eve Online"
  • Neverwinter Nights (not really an MMORPG)
- Games::NeverwinterNights::Query - Query Perl class to query a Neverwint Nights Server
  • F.E.A.R. (not really an MMORPG)
- Games::FEAR::Log - Log analysis tool for F.E.A.R. dedicated servers

Does anyone out there have written or used an online PC game-related module?
