GAMEPLAY

LORE

Peace has lasted for near thousand years and as the glory of the Stratus Empire slowly fades the new Wind Empire is on the rise with plans to finish this ancient dynasty once and for all and unite the four continents under their new vision, ruling by strength, order and military might. As the people fight among themselves a more sinister potential ruler grows in power, occupied eyes averted from their evil schemes, the Darksiders ready themselves to take over the world itself through the efforts of the nefarious Jin Seoyeon.

Heroes will rise and fall, taking their side amond the Martial Alliance to save what remains of the peace instilled by the Stratus Empire, or fight with the Hongcheon Doctrine rebels in their battle against oppression or focus on stopping Jin Seoyeon’s evil plans.

PLAYABLE RACES

There are four playable races of which to choose from:

Gon - these mighty and ferocious people are distrusted by many and equally feared, though to an ally they are fiercely loyal. The progeny of ancient Dragons the Gon may focus is a disciplined kung fu master or embrace their ferocious ancestry and follow the path of a Destroyer.

Jin - embodying the very spirit of the Black Tortoise the Jin for a wise and curious race and a varied people giving them the ability to specialise in a wider selection of classes including the Assassin, Blademaster or Kung Fu Master.

Kun - a mysterious race who are naturally beautiful and graceful due to their mighty Phoenix, this all-female populous prefer the natural world over civilised Urban living. They focus primarily on being Blade Masters but their ancestry has enabled them to control the elements as a Force Master.

Lyn - though appearing harmless and cute this highly tuned race are natural survivors able to see and speak with the spirits themselves, due to this they have the unique ability to train up as Summoner’s, but some still prefer the natural elements and train as Force Masters.

PLAYABLE CLASSES

Kung Fu Master - armed with signature gauntlets these hand-to-hand specialists can deal swift damage but there greatest strength is their indomitable defence.
