||Asheron's Call Description:|
is a massively multiplayer, epic, online role-playing adventure in a strange new land called Dereth. In Asheron's Call, you'll find yourself, as well as thousands of others, "called" by the mystical sorcerer Asheron to participate in a multiplayer adventure of staggering proportions. With Asheron's Call, the choices are yours - make friends, seek out perilous adventure, customize your alter ego with a unique appearance and balance of heroic skills, then enter a magical frontier of terrible monsters, breathtaking vistas, and fast alliances.
Asheron's Call resides on a 24 square mile island, nearly half the size of Rhode Island, with all types of terrain including mountain glaciers, desert wastelands, swamps and subterranean dungeons. Asheron's Call provides an engaging back-story equivalent to 4,000 years of game history for players to discover.
Asheron's Call's allegiance and fellowship system facilitates a social dimension of gameplay never before experienced in a computer game. The more allies a player acquires, the greater his or her influence becomes. The system encourages experienced players to work with newer players and enhances social interaction. There is also a dynamic magic system designed with hundreds of modular components. Spells are formed through combining words, gestures, and magical items and because of a unique spell "economy", the fewer players that use a particular spell, the greater the effectiveness of that spell.
