    The game keeps the most loved aspect of new-age VRMMOs, action based UI, and utilizes the need of in-game movement to amplify the difficulty of the game. Melee characters cannot simply stand still and facetank while they access their abilities, nor can they out sustain monsters at any level, they must actively dodge enemy's hits through their reflexive skills with minimal assistance by the stat that effects it. Magic characters as well must vocally recite spells, prayers, curses, or any other mana-based abilities within the game. Ranged combat is a challenge all in itself as arrows must be aimed, external conditions must be considered, and the arrow can be disrupted mid-flight.


    There are also various mechanics unique to the world. Realm of the Sovereign's map, referred to as DIS has seven territories of differing sizes. Each territory is able to be claimed by a guild with a large enough military power to take it. If non playing 'mobs' have claim of the territory, the area is handled like an in-game raid where loot will drop off the various defenses and fighting forces within the NPC strong. If another guild holds territory, the invading guild is able to take it should the guild leader of the standing one be defeated. When a guild holds a certain territory, they are granted a number of benefits. They are able to build upon the land, hire NPCs native to their territory, and are excluded from "Sovereign's Rule" which are laws designated by the guild leader of the territory.

    Another unique aspect of Realm of the Sovereign is that the world is quite literally 'living and breathing'. Each NPC within the game is strangely capable of making decisions, holding a unique personality, even having heritage and history that develops as the timeline within the game progresses. This also holds true to the enemy mobs within the game, and is also one of the reasons why the game is so difficult. Try and try as many times as you may to develop a strategy to beat that boss, but you're just giving him the same amount of time to figure out a strategy to defeat you.

    Guilds are an important aspect within Realm of the Sovereign, more so than in most other games of it's kind. They are the fundamental driving point for endgame content of any kind, economic, PvP, or PvE. There are few that grow to be large and powerful spanning multiple archetypes, but while they do exist most tend to find their own niche of gameplay and accordingly entitle themselves to exclusively that. This was predicted, so there are now identified to be three 'types' of guilds.

    The first are Merchant Guilds, these cater to players whom end up more focused on commerce and amassing wealth than the challenge of content. These guilds aren't very common, but they are known to be large due to the fact that NPCs are often employed by them. Many Merchant Guild work forces are even known to be entirely manned by NPCs of the game, working for players to earn their own living.

    The second are the Adventure Guilds, these differ in size but are more often than not guilds entirely based on PvE focused players whom enjoy playing with friends and experiencing the games intended content for the gear and fame. Some of the larger Adventure Guilds are hired by Merchant Guilds for tasks that aren't in their line of work, clearing out farmlands, escorting caravans, and even collecting money are examples of jobs they can be hired to do.

    The last type are Union Guilds, they are the juggernauts of Realm of the Sovereign as they are capable of having wars with one another when they've amassed to a certain size. Unions guilds are usually the product of two guilds joining together, or more rarely, a really large guild with a strong foundation of hardcore players of different kinds. They are dominant at PvP and are well funded by their guild leader and officers to fight to represent their guilds in battle.

  6. What is throughable? I do not think through can even be combined with able in any sense.
    What is sleathed? Neither of these two things are even words.
     
  7. Don't answer the questions as yourself RL. There's a reason we aren't making "out of game" characters, but that'll be told later on.
     
    • Thank Thank x 2
  8. I guess that was my question, 'are we making out-of-game characters' since not that clears that up for me.
     
  9. Of course, if you have anymore questions just hit me up.

    Also @Captian Wumbo your PM wasn't responded to yet, and since your questions weren't gone through the character is completely void. You literally just went on your own accord and made a character of your own ingredients on a whim. But I'm a benevolent GM, so if you'd be kind enough to take that one down for the time being while I answer your questions- I'd greatly appreciate it.
     
  10. >Van be thrown.

    Hue. Huehuehuheuehuehhue.
     
  11. Well Sleathed actually is a word.
    http://www.thefreedictionary.com/sheathed
    But your were right when you said that Throughable is not a word, I'll change that, thanks.
     
  12. Sleathed does not appear on that page once.
     
  13. ...

    I just realized how much of an idiot I am.
    Sorry about that, you were right, sleathed is definitely not a word.
    :(
    Forgive me
     
  14. I forgive you, for I am a kind and malevolent ruler.
     
  15. @Anderiel I was wondering about gear and whatnot, would it be okay if I gave my character a couple of "accessories"? Like a ring that gave her +2 Int and a necklace that adds +1 cast speed? o-o;
