Description

In a land overrun with monsters and villains, the mighty wizard Asheron has sent out a call to the bravest warriors and spell casters to return to the land of Dereth via magic portals. You and thousands of other Internet-connected players assume these adventurers in Asheron's Call . Unlike other massively multiplayer online role-playing games (or MMORPG, if you prefer), Asheron's Call takes a more holistic approach to game design. In the arena of character generation, rather than simply choosing a character class such as warrior or wizard, characters are designed based on the spending of skill points. If you want to play as a wizard that also dabbles in swordplay, Asheron's Call lets you make that decision. And unlike other MMORPGs available today, Asheron's Call offers a seamless world that avoids the lengthy halts whenever an entire new area is downloaded to the player's local computer.
