Animal Forest is a 2D MORPG with enforced role playing. You select from 1 of 12 animals as your race and there are 77 skills to choose from. Besides the teachers that teach skills in the main map (referred to as "The Hall"), there are no NPC's and no real game "coins" or "gold". The game is completely player run. AF is like most RPG's in the sense of the stat system, but leveling your skills isn't dependent on how much you grind the skill. Skill Points are awarded for play time which enable you to improve or learn new skills. Be creative when creating your character, and always role play. People have been known to get as so creative as to create an in-game religion, or fight arenas. Players may own burrows, which is essentially a custom built home where you can have doors (with keys), and run shops out of. They can be used for whatever purpose you wish. The main rule is No In Character chat in the OOC (Out of Character) channels and no Out of Character chat in the in game channels.

From Squeegy:

I feel like I should share some of my old characters to inspire interest in this game. These are all from its BYOND era, when the fields were lush with players and creativity abounded.

  • A stereotype-shattering police officer fox. He used his burrow to set up a police station and hired a few deputies, and checked in with all the local animals to make sure that the 'law' was being upheld. He also provided protection for shops against burglars and robbers, most notably two badger twins who went around threatening protection money out of honest shopkeeps. They had a big fight in the customer area of a smithy, him and his deputy versus the two badger twins, that iirc ended in a stalemate.
  • A scavenger rat(?) who owned a general store, and would spend his time either searching for materials and food to put on display (he was quite good at scrounging), or haggling with those who came in to buy from him. In general, he was quite useful, as his store often had what people were looking for, and was a good place to trade whatever goods you might have that were useless to you for enough food to keep you going.

It's a very fun game, and it gets exponentially more so the more people play, so at least give it a try!

Buzzyboy:

I remember when on the BYOND version, I played an extremely racist (against Foxes specifically) and mentally handicapped badger. I would fight every fox that got in my path after saying something along the lines: "All foxes are just thieves and don't deserve to live!".

I also remember while playing the same character was when I had put those statues around the water on the map near the beaches and someone created a church burrow right next to it where they would honor the statues. They must have had at least 5 followers and anyone who didn't convert, they would attack and loot. I remember deciding not to convert (because their had been a slimy fox with the group trying to convert) and I got jumped by 3 of them.

It did get a little out of hand as a lot of players started joining them destroying the balance of power.

This will also display how much everything stamina things take to forge, and what materials are required. I'm slowly working on cleaning out the GUI of the game, and I think this is a good start. I am also working on a quick commands panel right below the map panel and above the equipment panel. My idea with that is, displaying basic commands, such as wake and sleep, and scrounging. And when you enter combat mode they will switch to your commands such as bash, kick, and other combat based skilled.

This is the actual client. You will need the latest version of java to run the client.

I guess I'm too stupid to figure out how to make a character.
Each time I try it says something along the lines of "You must completely choose your stat order." even though I thought I already did.
