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!).
I've added a portrait (based on your character, just as the chat portrait works) to the left of the player's vitals (health, magic and experience). I feel it gives the impression that the vital bars are your characters vital bars. I didn't feel they gave that impression as much so without the portrait there. Any way, all feedback is welcome as always.
