Description

As one of the three factions vying for control over the planetary sector known as 'Novus', your job is to complete tasks to try to create fame and fortune for your faction, thus giving them greater control.

As a third person MMORPG, you play along with others, performing tasks to level up your character, allowing you to travel to more diverse realms of the game, play in more exciting missions. Like many MMORPGs, your characters skill set is mainly based on your choice of race at the beginning of the game, allowing you to become an elven type character, with powerful magical abilities, and high speed if you join the Cora alliance, a huge war robot with incredible physical power, but no magic and low speed, if you choose to become part of the Accretian Empire, or a human, part of the Bellato union, giving you stats somewhere in between the two.

All races (except the Accretian Empire) may then choose from one of four classes, ranger (a light, fast moving, low defense character), spiritualist (the game's mage class, low defense, high mana character who casts spells from afar), warrior (reasonably self explanatory, high defense, high attack, slow movement), and specialist, a kind of craftsman character who functions slightly like a sci-fi archer in battle. Because of the robotic nature of the Accretian characters, they cannot become spiritualists.

The game sends you details of missions through your HUD, so, unlike other MMORPGs, you do not need to return to your race's base every time you complete a mission, you are automatically awarded experience, and given another mission to complete.
