Abstract: A free to play, extensive MMORPG playable from a browser and updated daily.
No downloads - play in a browser.
Ever growing, however some general stats:
- 300+ maps
- 200+ items
- 5 quests (more in the works)
Afar has quite an extensive story - in my head. This is going to form the basis of quests eventually (a major storyline piece is in the works at the moment) but it isn't in the game much yet.
The main story arc being followed is that of Tiben - the main town in the starter area - and it's aims of expansion every way possible. Every now and then soldiers march out to capture new lands for the good of the town. The player winds up in the middle of some of these - the Western lands, the Northern teritories, and eventually to Ivesar itself.
and that is that, plain and simply, we owe our existence purely to the boredom of the old Gods.
They have since left our lands although some would argue otherwise, or that they can never truly be gone because as ascended beings they do not exist in the same way you or I would. I however disagree, and can see that they have plainly left our mortal realms.
This now concludes the chapter and I shall finish with a timeline running from the day the world was created up until the present day.

CHAPTER 7 - THE FUTURE
One can only speculate on the events of the future but it is clear Tiben is intent on expanding, with vanguards heading North-East and plans to head West retaking land lost in the Western Wars not completely out of the question.
Personally I believe Tiben will attempt to invade Straupuft and the desert cities once the time is right.
There is no doubt in my mind that there is a lot of land that can be recovered from the old city of Ivesar, which now lies in ruin. The chance of another volcano is unlikely, and I am sure that wizards will find a way to combat the effects and reclaim the land.
Son of Lord Jarin of Tiben, Ivan is a soldier in the castle army.

This is an MMORPG. The main features (although there is tons to do, just a little hard to find sometimes - working on making it more logical)-
- Sim Player Versus Player combat
- Sideview battle system
- Item crafting
- Merchant skills
- Spells and spell roster
- Quests, quest journal
- Character customisation
- Probably a lot more important stuff that I've forgotten about and will get back into play eventually.
Internet Explorer users will not have the fancy borders that Firefox users get due to IE not conforming to standards. This game is aimed at the Firefox browser, but should work in Google Chrome as well. When a standalone client is made it will be using the Firefox browser.
