1. HOW TO CREATE A CHARACTER
The first step is to make up a name. This name will be used to create your profile and name your character. The password is optional. Then pick an icon or download your own. Lastly choose a class. There are four choices. Clicking the character class button will enter the game.
2. HOW TO MOVE
Click the mouse inside the map in the center. An arrow animation shown in the picture will send the character to that location even if it is several steps away. When you stand on the edge of the map you will be pulled into the next area. If you click on the character it will not move into the next area. Click on the character to toggle this effect.
3. HOW TO PICK-UP ITEMS, ATTACK, AND MAKE FRIENDS
All three of these functions are done with the mouse clicks as described above. To pick something up click on the item. The character will walk over to the item and pick it up. Attacking is done by moving into an opponent. If it is another player, it will instead befriend the player and add him or her to your FriendList which can be viewed on your profile. To attack another player and not make friends you must click the 'Safety is ON' button which changes it to 'Safety is OFF'

BACK TO THE TOP
During the Great Battle, the Demon Prince Shax battled the Kings of Old in one final showdown.
After a long struggle, the Demon Prince and his Legions were victorious.
The Land of Vastarien was his to do with as he pleased.
All that was so long ago that even the sky has forgotten exactly when this happened.
Have you ever seen a city in a bottle? Vastarien was now something like that.
The more you looked at it, the more you saw.
The vapory mists would part to reveal dark steeples and windows hung like crooked pictures.
Vastarien was now one of a thousand other captive worlds that adorned the mantle of Shax like snowglobe graveyards.
In time, a thousand worlds were not enough. The Demon went on a long quest through space and time and never came back.
That was thousands of years ago. No one has ever heard from him again.
No one knows whether he is still alive or not.
The Seven Gates of the World have been shut since the Great Battle when the Demon Prince Shax sealed all the corners of the world with magic gates.
A legend has it that a hero will rise and free the world.
This hero will gather together a band of experienced adventurers, find the Seven Keys scattered in the deep wild places and pass through the Seventh Gate to free the captive world.
Anyone who completes this task will be remembered forever in the Land of Vastarien. First search for the Ironcross Key.|
