What is Dark Relic?
Dark Relic is a high fantasy MMORPG currently in its second year of development. Abyomon is the first of five continents now in development.
It takes place in the world of Neithus, a world filled with strange new races and creatures that stem from our own ancient world lore from around the world.
Neithus is a Sandpark world allowing you to progress in the world through quests or exploring the Ward of your choice on your own. Walk (Themepark), run (Sandbox) or both (Sandpark). Your path is up to you, not us.
An Ever Expanding World
Neithus consists of five continents each ruled by a Regent. Each continent has its own political system, along with their own architectural styles based on the races of that land.
Three continents are scheduled at release, Abyomon: The country of deserts and home of the Mau. Nagamo: A land of jungles and forests, is the home of the Avallis-vir. Terrum: A Gothic land where the humans first arrived.
Majice Isle, a large volcanic island filled with rich resources, stands in the center of the world, where players battle other countries for their land and resources in the name of their Regent.
New and Familiar Races
Dark Relic offers 9 unique races for players to select from to start with more in upcoming expansions. Select from different racial types including Humanoids, Beasts, Elves or Empyreals.
Abyomon offers the Djinnai (Empyreal) and the Morren (Elven). Nagamo offers the Avallis-vir (Elven) and Namumi (Beast). Terrum offers the Torren (Humanoid) and Kuoni (beast).
You can personalize your character at the beginning with many options within that races customs. However, you can learn, earn or buy other styles to further customize your character.

Entering the world you have the opportunity to try out the different classes before joining one of the four Class Guilds. Upon advancement in that class, you will then select your Profession.
Once you select your Class Profession, you have the option of what path you wish to take. Each Profession has a unique set of abilities and skills you can train in or learn out in the world.

Adventuring That Rewards
Dark Relic is focused on the player, not a particular play style. There are avenues for all types of players, whether you are a solo player, a group player, a raider or a crafter.
You can play how you enjoy playing, whether it is one of those or a combination of. Each Game Ward (Adventuring, Crafting, Civics) works well with each other and allows you to play how you want.
Each game ward compliments each other allowing all players, no matter their style, to advance in a productive but unique way. This allows you, no matter your play style, to interact with the world.

In Neithus, interactive crafting offers you more than just grinding to make the next level. You will interact with the world and the other Game Wards. No longer will you just "Click and Ding" to progress.
Advance with Civics
Civics, the 3rd Game Ward, is the political side of Neithus. Deals can be made or brokered, affecting yourself, your friends, your guild or even your Alliance.
