Wizardry Online

Moby ID: 59832

Description

Wizardry Online is a free-to-play dungeon crawler MMORPG inspired by the early Wizardry games.

The game takes place in the kingdom of Dimento, a fantasy world where magic is slowly disappearing. The authorities suspect this phenomenon is linked to ancient ruins left by the mysterious Dragoon civilization. Said ruins have soon become invaded by monsters, and the government issues a call for adventurers to venture into the ruins and discover the truth. And thus the adventure begins in the small port of Illfalo.

The players can create their character by choosing between various fantasy races (Humans, Elves, Dwarves, Gnomes, and small, Hobbit-like humanoids called "Porkuls") and classes (Fighters, Mages, Thieves...). After completing some trials to join the Adventurers' Guild (acting as the game's tutorial), the player begins his quest, exploring dungeons, vanquishing monsters, and looting treasure. As in all MMORPGs, it is strongly recommended to find some friends to form a party. The game only features towns and dungeons.

The gameplay of Wizardry Online is intentionally old-school, especially the death mechanics. When killed, a player becomes a ghost, and needs to return to a statue in order to be reincarnated. But as the character grows in power, the resurrection rate decreases, and adding a chance to lose the character forever, except if the player sacrifices some items. And while he's looking for the statue in ghost form, his body can be looted by other players. On his way, he might also meet Reapers who will reduce his resurrection rate.
