Setting

The game takes place in the Holy Land of Lunatia, which is divided into two countries: Ganav Libero and Primus Union. Both are inhabited by a number of races and social classes. Although there were once gods that ruled over them they have all either been shut away or are otherwise incapacitated.

Nations

Primus Union

Hundreds of merchant guilds became united by a man named Vakaven Kahharl and it became the nation of Primus Union. Primus Union is the center of trade and crafting. This nation is the largest, and is still growing; it never seems to stop expanding.

However, since many guilds were united by one absolute authority, this nation's rule is strict and faithful. Primus Union fights for loyalty and honor on the battlefield so, they refuse to ambush or use vulgar tactics. To win, is to win with prowess alone.

Ganav Libero

Wanderers and travelers crowded into this city one by one and finally it became a huge union. Five elders in the city then came together and the nation Ganav Libero was born.

Many people in Ganav Libero farmed and hunted for a living and created what they needed with mysterious magic power.

Their lifestyle supports freedom and living creatively. On the battlefield they never fight in a certain manner or with typical maneuvers. They use innovative tactics and surprise their enemies in every battle and conquer with invincible minds and spirits.

Races

Seneka

When the world was created, the gods created Senekas as manifestations of god themselves. Therefore, Senekas have the same appearance as the gods. Seneka’s strong spiritual strength and their high intelligence give them an advantage in battle.

Seneka use their power to develop and cultivate their habitat and now their civilization has become the center of the world.

All tools and buildings are made to fit the Seneka. Unfortunately, because of their reckless development and growth, nature started to lose its beauty and this led to a bad relationship with the Matsuka Tribe.

Koshare

Koshares are the fairies who were born from the earth when the first leaf of life started to rise from the ground. They are the descendants of the earth itself. They look small and cute, but as the children of the land, they have unbelievable strength. Even if their weapons are bigger than their body they wield them easily.

However, ironically, Koshares are very bold and they often become pranksters and jokers even if their opponent is another race. They are good at crafting and researching because of their curiosity and dexterous hands. For the most part, Koshares don’t like to be in large sized groups.

It is hard to find Koshare towns these days because their numbers went down incredibly after The War of Gods. Koshares live for over 200 years and their appearance never changes.

Matsuka

The Matsuka race is a characteristic between two mixtures of an animal and a human form. They were born from the flames when the world was created. They are very sharp and intellectual, but they are terrible at crafting and anything that involves techniques and skills, so they came to live along with other races. They usually fight as mercenaries for other races to get what they need for a living.

Matsuka fighters are very swift and brave. However, even though they are brave fighters in battle, they value harmony with nature. Therefore, the Matsuka never harm nature or the planet. Because of this, they once had a war with Seneka because they were destroying forests to develop their town.

The war is over now, but the tension between Matsuka and Seneka has not vanished. Matsuka celebrates their coming of age at 13 and that is when they are treated as adults. The Matsuka live for approximately 150 years and keep their young appearance until around 100.ngyok

Classes

  • Warriors: High HP and strong defense makes the warrior the leader. Warriors never run away from the battlefield even in the worst situation. They fight courageously at all times. When bravery gathers on the battlefield, there will always be a warrior. They are the ones who are the most feared enemies of their opponents.
  • Monks: Experts in controlling the physical power of their body and also the flow of Ki. Because of the long periods of discipline they may act as variety of positions in battle. They can play the roll of damage dealer or tank. Their strong, simple, and pure mind will lead to wise decisions even if the battle is chaotic. Monks’ multiple abilities allow them to control the battle how they have planned.
  • Rogues (thieves) - Thieves are born with amazing dexterity and they disappear and appear behind enemies to deal fatal blows. On the battlefield, the tide of war can be changed dramatically by their tactics and moves. The backs of all soldiers are the thieves’ primary target. People fear them due to the way they fight. However, their tactics and cleverness will drive battle to the limit.
  • Hunters: Have the ability to make enemies lose their will to fight. They distract their enemies and take them down before they notice the hunter is even there. There is a hunters clan known as “Hell Wind” which is famous on the battlefield for relentless and fierce attacks.
  • Mages: Have magical powers that allow them to rule the battlefield by maximizing their spirit energy and harmonizing its force with nature. Mages wield both divine and demonic power so they may fall into the darkness if they fail on controlling themselves. Therefore, they concentrate their energy into protecting themselves from the infinite power and also to wipe out enemies they face. Due to the strong spiritual force, they can maintain rationality in any situation.
  • Clerics - have the ability to cure comrades who have fallen. They are not really specialized in battle so they usually support their teammates and protect and rejuvenate them with the power of light. The divinity of the priests are envied by many people, since only chosen ones may become clerics.

Features

Monster Transformation & PK (Player Kill) System

Cloud Nine provides a monster transformation system to players. Items that let players transform into monsters can be obtained by certain enemies. When a player transforms into a monster, their status or power becomes exactly the same as the monsters, so it will give more advantages to the player who transformed. Also, the transformation system can be used as tactics during the battle in PVP.
