Abandoned Realms is a text-based roleplaying game where the new adventurer explores over 100 areas, acquiring experience
points to gain 50 levels. Along with the levels come new abilities to master. Players kill
tough creatures to obtain better equipment and proceed to the next area for better
loot. Along the way, the player meets others IN CHARACTER who are doing the same,
and will have to choose to either ally with them, be hostile or just avoid them.
Getting to the 50th level (the pinnacle) is where the real game begins for our veterans. Politics and
war are rife amongst the elite players, who need to co-operate to get the best loot in
the game from our challenging "end game" areas. However, it is limited in quantity on the server,
which means trading for, begging, stealing, and in some cases fighting over it. Many players
join cabals for both protection and power.
Finally, a note about losers. This is a roleplaying enforced game with playerkilling
to up the ante,
so expect to die and get accustomed to dealing with it, with help from your friends if need be.
However, that does not mean that we harbor losers who pick off
our new players. If you get murdered and fully looted with no roleplay in
your first two months on this game, please let us know so that we can deal
with that person to the harshest possible degree. Do keep in mind
as well, you will earn yourself a TON of respect for toughing it out to a high level
and being in the graveyard !
