its addictive and you lose track of time. I associate it to D&D. Others say its alot like Diablo. Basically you wonder the forest and dungeons...to gather objects that allow you to obtain the seven cystals that you need to beat Draak (which i cant yet).

Think of it as a 3D Diablo. Some call it a clone, but that's just being too simple.

Above all, it's fun [img]smile.gif[/img]

Single or dual player game, rather lineal (there are a couple custom quests that are anything *but* lineal, tho!). Basically, equip, kill bad nasties, roam through each of four lands sequentially collecting clues/quests, descend into the 'dungeons' of each land with the intention to retrieve the lost crystals (and complete various side quests), then on the the final show down.

Yep, *quite* addictive and lovely to play! Actually it's our daughter CloudKitten's favorite rpg! She is a very literal, linear-thinking type and this game suits her extremely well while challenging her to collate information and clues to complete the quests. And you can even create your very own quest with the quest editor if you have a mind to and the talent!

(Edit: I wasn't quite fair...there are several classes to choose from ranging from the basic brawny warrior to the sorceror or the thief or the monk all with female counterparts and widely differing skills. In the progress of the game, you will have the opportunity to hone your skills and level with experience as well as improve your equipment.)
