Spellbinder: The Nexus Conflict is an online-only multiplayer-shooter based on the P&P-RPG "Rolemaster". It plays in a medieval fantasy scenario so instead of rocket launchers the players battle with spells. In every match there are two or three teams with one goal: Conquer all the power nodes. This is accomplished simply by using a certain spell in their vicinity. With more nodes the team gets more mana for using spells. Also every team has a more powerful node in their base. The match ends after 60 minutes or when a team has all nodes in their possession.
The game features four character classes: magician (strong attacks). mystic (high agility and an invisible spell), runemage (traps) and healer. With every hit and/or kill the player gets experience points and, when earned enough of them, a new level. Bonus points are rewarded for team success and playing the whole 60 minutes. New levels give more spells and points which can be used to improve the player's abilities, e.g. attack power or hit points. To ensure fair fights the players are assigned to matches where the opponents and teammates are about their level.
