    I've been playing this game for some two years, and still discovering how fun it is. It is OS neutral and with video quality graphics, and is completely free to play. It is in continual expansion. You start off with a character in one of a number of professions of your choice. ATM it has Ranger (archer with a bow), DragonKnight (melee), Spellweaver, and recently with the addition of a fourth profession for the dwarven racial types - Steam Mechanicus (think steam age...) which I have never tried.

    The game has its own terminology. A dungeon is not necessarily underground, there are many in the open air. It refers to a gaming environment in which single players can operate without better players taking out monsters from the rest of us. Guilds can play here too, but again there are no other players present. I don't know how they do this, I quite often seen other players enter a dungeon environment but when my character enters there is no sign of any other players in it. Wilderness areas (so called) are where you often see other characters, moving or fighting monsters.

    Urban areas are places where players are in plenty but no fighting is allowed, places to rest up and check your equipment, and do some shopping. The biggest urban area is Kingshill, where the King sits on his throne, and where there are many NPC advisors around him. Urban areas are where quests can be given by NPCs. Complete the quest and get rewards in proportion to effort expended. Quests can prove to be information-seeking, which gives players info on the game. This can be very valuable and characters may specialise in particular subjects.

    Most urban areas have blacksmiths to mend armour and other equipment for a modest price. There are also storage facilities where equipment can be stored for free. In urban areas many items and pieces of equipment can be bought, and where there may be a "giant" trainer of horses and companions (familiars) for sale: a place to do shopping. You can also buy essences that boost your combat abilities. There is also a travel post which you can access to journey the lands, each journey for a modest fee.

    The game has its own currency, in copper, silver, gold, and andermant. These can be gained from defeating monsters, and completing quests.

    When you first join the game or decide to choose a new character-type, you can follow the instructions on how best to proceed.
