Welcome! We here at Abandoned Realms are all very pleased that you have chosen to play this game, and we hope that you'll enjoy your time here. A lot of hard work and effort has been extended to make sure that this game is as accessible as possible for you!

Several sections have been prepared in this guide for you to read in more detail. These will give you some idea of what you can do and how to go about it doing it.

  • ABOUT GAME - this section will give you a quick overview of this game
  • 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 !
