Runes of Magic Description
Runes of Magic is a high-fantasy 3D MMORPG. Set in the world of Taborea, there is purportedly over 5,000 quests for players to do in the game.
Players entering Runes of Magic first choose one of the 3 available races. These are Human, Elf, and Dwarf. Certain classes are only available to a given race. For instance, the Knight is only available to the Humans, Druid and Warden classes are only selectable by an Elf, and only a Dwarf can be a Champion or Warlock. The other classes are the Mage, Rogue, Scout, and Warrior. The classes in Runes of Magic fill the traditional MMORPG roles: Tank, Healer, Melee DPS, and Ranged DPS.
The Runes in Runes of Magic provide different types of bonuses and enhancements. There are 3 general types: Enhancement, Production, and Special Runes. Enhancement Runes can be inserted to Ornaments and Weapons, and Armor. They provide passive bonuses that boost stats, with higher Tiers giving better bonuses. Production Runes are necessary for crafting such as the Link Rune for Carpentry or Frost Rune for Blacksmithing. Special Runes have various uses such as the Transport Rune for fast travel or the Home-Sweet-Home Rune which transports the character to their house.
Armor in Runes of Magic has multiple slots. There are armor pieces that can be placed on the Head, Shoulders, Body, Hands, Legs, and Feet slots. However, certain classes like the Mage, Druid, Priest, and Warlock can only wear Cloth Armors.
Players in Runes of Magic can establish a Guild. Even a solo player can create their own Guild, though it makes it difficult to reach the higher Guild levels. Guild Levels range from 1 to 15, which increases the number of maximum members. At Guild level 5, a Guild Castle can be constructed. This requires investment of resources to build, such as Gold, Wood, Ore, and Herbs. The Guild Castle can then further be improved with adding rooms and structures such as a Farm, Library, Academy, Arsenal, Processing Factory, and Processing Factories.
