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 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.
Some news regarding the player-owned housing system I'm working on for the game. It's coming along nicely and I would love to hear your opinions and ideas.

I've been working non-stop on this recently, here are some more updates to give you an idea as to how this is going to work or look. You can turn 'edit mode' on and off to see or hide thew guide depicting where in the house you are to place you furniture (which can be made with the carpentry skill). I've also made the weather system more realistic.. Sometimes it will rain for half an hour, then stop for an hour.. Sometimes it will rain for 5 minutes then stop for 2.. It depends. Anyway here are some pictures showing you the player owned house in and out of edit mode (this can be turned on and off with the small 'edit mode' tile). You can also decorate the flooring, interior and exterior walls of your house, add new rooms, add new floors and much more! All feedback is, as always, welcome. I hope you enjoy how it's coming along.
