Description

Ashen Empires is a 2D MMORPG set in a medieval fantasy world. Two factions battle for control over the island and players can choose to align themselves with the factions or forge unique alliances. Aside from PVP, there are quests and dungeons throughout the world. It is even possible for a player to level simply through trade skills and crafting.

Players can choose to be humans, orcs, or night elves. There are no limits to the number and type of skills that one can advance, which yields a wide array of character builds. The item system somewhat caps player's creativity, however.

Two expansions are available to the original game; Talazar's Revenge and Sands of Creation. The original game is free to play, but premium content such as subscriptions, expansions, and other in-game items are available for purchase through the game's token based store. Players who do not subscribe can play the entire original game, but they gain experience at a decreased rate.

Trivia

Development

According to Heidi Schulz from Pixel Mine Productions, the company that worked on the Talazar’s Revenge expansion pack, the game has changed hands several times and so it is difficult to credit the ownership and development. The game began as Dransik, which is still running, and was owned by Asylumsoft. After that company lost investment money, TKO Software was formed and revamped the game to its current look/feel under the name Ashen Empires. TKO Software collapsed when the investors pulled out and Iron Will Games stepped in to salvage Ashen Empires. The same core team of developers has been working on it this whole time, just under different names. As of 2007, both Dransik (Classic AE) and Ashen Empires are running under the management of Iron Will Games.
