Description

This is a 3D fantasy MMORPG based on a MUD (an online RPG in text only) from several years back, and is set on the continent of Vormis where the ruler of South Vormis has sealed the gates of the capital and declared martial law. The town of Kajblood is now a make-shift governing body and is seeking adventurers to help them defend against a recent onslaught of Kobold invasions from the north. Bandits roam the countryside, necromancers are bringing to life the undead, and even wildlife are acting strangely. Graphics are provided by the Lithtech Jupiter engine.

The game includes 7 races (Human, Dwarf, Elf, Orc, Gnome, Ogre, and Leshy), over 100 professions per race (usual ones like wizard and warrior but also unusual ones like tailor or poet), over 200 spells and close to 3000 items. There's a calendar and justice system, and a turn-based combat system combined with real-time actions like cancelling combat preparation and fleeing. You can personalize your character with several face, hair style and hair color options per race. The class you choose all have slightly different skill distributions and weapon styles. Stat points must be distributed among the four stats: Strength, Dexterity, Intelligence, and Constitution. Also, a few hundred DP (skill points) must be assigned among Martial, Magic, Craft, Gathering, Worldly, and Language skills. When first starting in a small town you can talk to tutorial NPCs.

Originally it was subscription-based but was later turned into a free to play game supported by player donations after the original developer ran into financial trouble and the game was taken over by Mnemosyne LLC on Aug. 5, 2004. Players who donate receive benefits such as priority access to game servers even if they are full.
