The air is thick with despair, and the battles never cease. Rain falls, yet the land is barren, as if the earth has been drenched in too much bloodshed to bear fruit. Monstrous creatures lurk in every trench, cave, and valley. To survive, people have huddled together, forming ramshackle towns with high walls. Yet, cowering behind those walls does not guarantee safety...

- Customize gear, with unique enchants.
- Heavy, heavy plot focus, for a fighting game.
Here's something interesting: a co-op MMO, playable in installments. The plot's fantasy with anime sensibilities and a strong Celtic feel. You play as the Rookie - one of several pre-determined avatar heroes - who swaggers onto the scene just in time to help the Crimson Blades, a group of heroes, defeat a giant spider. From there, you go on to help them on a series of interlocked quests, everything from exploring abandoned cities to exposing the true traitor behind all these Lizardmen attacks.
Each Episode is a completely separate chunk of the story, with self-contained plot that, all added together, puts you at the heart of a story about treason, redemption, and the return of the Goddess Morrighan. Season 1 exists in its entirety for you to fight through; Season 2, which takes you to the deceptively pleasant seaside town of Melina, has just begun.
You're doing this for fortune and fame, naturally, and fame includes titles, which can be won by doing heroic feats and defeating certain enemies. Those titles can be displayed above your PC's head, informing everyone who's the true hero around here. After completing certain content you also have the option of transforming into a Paladin or a Dark Knight, depending on which plot path you followed, for added combat bonuses.
