What classes and races are included in Craft of Gods?

There are no classes :)

There are 210 different skills that you can use to customize your character and build it exactly as you want. No predefined archetypes, you can create your own.
With regards to races, these are the ones available:

Realm of Light - Svarog's realm

Humans of Light
The human race is proud to be a part of Svarog's family, and they want to change the world in which they live. They have spread all over the world; they are very adaptable and can live in any conditions.

When Siana, a golden-haired maiden with sea-green eyes decided to get married, she asked Svarog to find her a good man. He sent Iaromir, they fell in love, and got married. Their life together was happy, but then Siana died and Iaromir ran into her burning pyre to follow his love. He came out from the flames as god Semargl, and a new race was born: the Hyperboreans. They are akin to humans, but they are extremely fierce, and worship the Great Semargl.

This race has also been created by Svarog. He smote a mountain with his magical hammer, and from flying shards a giant human-like race was created, which Svarog named Velet. They are giants, powerful and strong, but they are also honest, a little naive and innocent. They are good and kind to other creatures, but do not annoy a Velet, for he is as strong as Svarog himself.

Realm of Darkness-Black Snake's Realm

Humans of Darkness
Not all humans, created by Svarog, became his followers. Some of them were fascinated by the power of the Black Snake, and chose Darkness. They are the same as humans of Light, similar in appearance, but the Darkness and the power of the Black Snake made them very powerful.

One day, a wolf went to the Black Snake. He kneeled next to the Serpents great tail, and asked to marry one nice human female of Darkness. At first, the Black Snake refused, but then he realized that uniting the mind of a human with the agility and strength of a wolf could create a new race, very well suited for serving his Dark purposes.

The Black Snake hates water, and he went everyday to the Great Lake to see the Spirits of the Lake. They were not afraid of him, united as they were in the clean waters of the lake. He hated them and so he created them bodies. This race became corporeal and they lost their powers in water and named themselves Dyagv. They are still serving Darkness, hoping that one day they will return to be spirits.

And there'll be a third race, neutral: the Atlantis.

How does the level up system work?

Considering that there are no classes in the game, the level up system is a bit peculiar. Basically, every time you level up you get 5 points that you can spend to increase your character stats (strength, stamina, agility, intelligence and armor). Of course, their effectiveness depends on how you want to develop your character and what kind of skills you want to focus on. There are 210 different skills in Craft of Gods, divided into 14 schools: fire, berserk, psychic, demonology, wind, earth, necromancy, archer, melee, water, lightning, nature, defense, healing. By leveling up you earn points that you can spend in learning skills. Once you reach the cap (level 100) you'll have enough points to learn 2 full schools and up to one half of a 3rd school.

Will Craft of Gods be free to play?

No, it will be pay to play, but we can assure you that the monthly fee will be extremely interesting. ;-)


What is your favorite area of the game and why? May we have a screenshot?

It's very difficult to pick just one, there are 24 maps each of them quite large and very peculiar. One of the areas I like the most is called Nameless Island. It's a very curious and mysterious place, it's a giant desert plan with strange buildings and artifacts. It reminds me of Mars, with its red sand all over the place.

Will Craft of Gods feature competitions and tournaments?

Craft of Gods is built around competitions between guilds and realms, so the obvious answer is yes. :)

But that's not all: as I previously said we believe that community is an essential part of an online game and we want to support it the best we can and provide the best experience possible; so we will organize events, tournaments, competitions and whatever else we think will be interesting and fun!

What about mounts?

That's one of the unique features of the game that we're particularly proud of.

In Craft of Gods you can mount pretty much any creature. Tired of riding a horse? Try a bear! Or a scorpion! Or maybe a spider or a deer. Basically most of the creatures you'll encounter in game will be tamable and you'll be able to use them as a mount.

Is there a guild system in place?

Yes, guilds are a very important aspect of the game. To create a guild you need to buy a guild house and then have at least 10 players joining. There are several levels of authority in the Guild - and the highest is the Guild master, who can create different levels and change permissions for each level.

Guild masters can invite, kick and promote users; they can buy items for the Guild house; purchase another Guild house; purchase Guild bank; buy furniture for the Guild house, etc.

A Guild must be composed only of characters belonging to the same faction (Light or Darkness).

Where can players go to get signed up?

If you are not registered please go and we will send the Key to your e-mail address.

When will beta testing begin?

It has already begun. In fact we're just about to open our third Open Beta event that will run from April 2nd to April 6th. This won't be your last chance to try the game, though; and anyway once the game will be released we'll have a trial offer in place anyway.
