~ Intro ~

"I have crossed boundless oceans and peered into dying suns. From the roiling shores of Denurnien to the hellpits of Dis, but I shall venture further for I know my journey is not complete." - Callixste the explorer

Feature Brief Description
Custom Questing System Tons of progressable quests created via our custom QEDIT functionality.
Random Loot Drops On top of the stock equipment that can be found throughout the land, mobiles can drop randomized Diablo-style equipment.
Fishing! Not up for monster slaying or pvp today? Sit back, load your pipe, and puff on it while you fish the day away. Use gameinfo to track the best fishermen in Aragond.
A Toggleable Mini Map Detailed 5 room x 5 room mini map depicting the surrounding rooms, players, and mobiles.
Immersive Crafting Gather materials via skills such as mining, then turn them into weapons, armor, cookware, and other crafting tools. Sell your crafted items to NPC vendors or other players!
Pets and Mounts Tame or purchase pets and mounts, collect equipment for them, and train their stats as they level up alongside you.
Dozens of Ways to Progress Gaining experience is not just done by killing monsters. You can do so by more than a dozen other ways such as exploring, improving skills, and learning new languages.
Multi-Classing Choose a secondary class to benefit from a wider skillset, or gain the ability to cast spells.
Sub-Classing Remain your main class, but specialize in a particular area of it, opening up more abilities and specializations.
Removal of Skill/Spell Groups Each skill/spell is learned individually, breaking free from cookie cutter builds of the past.
Learning Spells From Scrolls Spellcasters can learn spells from scrolls, giving them flexibility of character builds.
Interactive Objects Push, pull, or pry objects. Break them down into their root material for crafting or sale, or enhance them with magic. Dropping glass objects may break them, buoyant objects float in water and move with the wind, attach pieces of objects together to form a new object, and more.
Room Affects Rooms can be affected by spells! This adds a level of strategy and interactiveness to the areas never before seen!
Interactive Environment Walking leaves tracks in the snow/mud, dig up a treasure chest or plant a seed and watch it grow (don't forget to water it!), chop down a tree and use the materials to make something with, or don't and watch it grow over time.
Climate Based Weather Each area has it's own climate setting, which will produce dynamic weather elements, giving a greater immersive feeling. Experience rain, sleet, snow, hail, lightning strikes, tornadoes, earthquakes, and more.
Different planes and time travel Beyond Aragond (the material plane), travel to many other planes of existence, or time travel through one of our time-shifted areas.
