Arkanius is a 2D Retro-Styled Fantasy MMORPG. It is currently in development, however, already has many features.

There is a very interactive and deep quest system, a weather system, player housing, leveled and experience based skills including cooking, woodcutting, mining, tailoring, leatherworking, blacksmithing, fishing, harvesting, alchemy, crafting, carpentry and enchanting.

The player can also build and customize their own ship and caravan. This allows them to transport party members, while the party members interact with each other inside the caravan/ship the player can be outside transporting them to a location. The caravan and ship can also be named and the interior of both customized fully with furniture and much more.

The player can fight solo or in parties, participate in social events including last-man-standing PvP events on distant islands and much more.

There is magic, projectile and melee weapons. The characters have their equipment paperdolled in harmony with each other, equipment including shoulder armour, cloaks, helmets, amulets, quivers, shields, armour, weapons, belts, gloves, boots and rings in which can all be worn without any cluttered look whatsoever.

Characters can be personalized to the players own choice through many hairstyles and colours.

There is a very close knit community in the forums and nearly all suggestions (so long as they comply with the games atmosphere and feel) are implemented (the people whose suggestions are implemented are also credited!).

Character Profiles..

News 1 comment

When users have accounts on the Arkanius client they will now be given the option to link their website and client accounts.

This will add a button to the bottom of each of their posts and also another button on their forums profile linking to their character's profile.

On the character's profile there will be all of that character's skill levels and experience. Their total NPC and player kills, gold found, playing time, the date they started playing and more.

Click the following link to view my character's profile as an example:

As always all feedback is welcome.

At the moment the beta is supposed to start in 'a few months', of course that could mean anything, but let's just assume it'll be sometime this year.

The deadline I've set myself for the game's release is 01/01/14 which is just over 6 months away. This is not a 100% guarantee, however it is a very accurate approximation.

Thanks for the comment! I apologize greatly as I accidentally gave you bad karma instead of good. Sorry! Thanks once again.
