Xsyon is an alternate future MMORPG. The lore of the game is drawn from different inspirations, including Native American, Aztec, Mayan, and similar sources which explore the Apocalyptic prophecies from such sources.
Players in Xsyon take the role of Survivors in this near-future dystopian world. Survivors in Xsyon must learn and develop Skills in order to succeed. As the world has lost much of its knowledge and technology, Xsyon Survivors must rely on more practical know-how. These include Combat Skills, Construction Skills, and Crafting Skills. There are also unusual skills such as Talismancraft and Terraforming.
The world in Xsyon is dynamic, being affected by player actions. Resources and wildlife can be harvested to extinction if players are not too careful. It is ideal for Xsyon Survivors to work together to form settlements and tribes. Tribes in Xsyon can vary depending on their size, from a Homestead of 4 members, a Band of up to 9 members, a Clan of up to 19 members, and 20+ as a full-fledged Tribe.
