Aragon Online is an interactive, empire-building medieval fantasy game that blends economics, diplomacy, trade, role-playing and tactical battles into a strategic multiplayer online experience unlike any other out there. It is a world of PCs and NPCs, potentially dangerous or advantageous politically, economically and militarily. Player interaction can be adversarial or cooperative.
The war-game battle system has standard battle elements and fantasy-style magic. The system emphasizes combined-arms battles, and will appeal to serious fantasy (war) gamers.
The player character takes the role of the ruler of a small village in a vast world. There are 6 player races (Human, Elf, Dwarf, Orc, Goblin, Ogre) and 5 classes (Warrior, Knight, Ranger, Priest and Mage) that the player can choose to be. He starts out with a follower character (henchman) and a small army of 75 soldiers chosen from 5 unit types (Infantry, Mtd. Infantry, Cavalry, Bowmen, Mtd. Bowmen). Each of the cities vies with the others to attempt to increase their power and influence in the world through Diplomacy, Intrigue and Battle.
The role-playing aspects of the game are implemented with a script system that presents messages to the player, and sometimes presents him with choices that will lead to other messages and consequences good or bad, depending on many possible factors.
Aragon Online was conceived in 2003, and has been in active development for the past 8 years. It is now open for a public beta-test.
