The game takes place in a medieval world imbued with magic and stalked by darkness.

All players may choose among 10 differents races and 24 character classes(there are no dual classes or multiclass characters), with 20 character levels starting from level 0. Each class begins with 10 skills & feats, each time the character levels up he/she will gain 1 development point which the player may use to improve an attribute score or skill, or acquire a new skill or feat.

Moreover, players may improve their equipment, acquire properties, contract sexual diseases, become part of a guild or faction, become wanted criminals, create magic objects, buy exotic pets such as a pet dragon, etc…
