Expected Release : February 2021
Please checking out our other post looking for volunteers.
For those looking for a unique, different, Ragnarok Experience - this is your server.
Ragnarok RP is a US/EU based roleplay server for Ragnarok Online. We unique from the other roleplay servers based on our teams roleplay experience, and our focus on roleplay. Being created by an experienced team of Dungeon Masters across both digital and pen and paper teams we are building a world with custom maps, lore, sprites and classes.
We believe in organic roleplay, which means players will drive the overall story under DM created story arcs. Players will fulfill key positions in our world - leading factions as Kings, fighting wars as generals, conducting assassinations and diplomacy and changing the world around them.
This server is likely different from what you've experienced in that we are roleplayers first, who happen to use the Ragnarok platform. If you are looking for the traditional Ragnarok experience you won't find it here. We have removed, added, or altered many of the NPCs and functions you've been accustomed to in the world of Ragnarok. You will find yourself instead on the continent of Avernum, living in a world ruled by an oppressive Empire that has just crushed the last remnants of rebellion in one of its Southern Kingdoms.
We are in the hard development phase of the server, but rapidly implementing many of our features already.
Here are some of expected features:
1. Hand-crafted game world which will include new maps, jobs, music, world, characters. Dungeon Masters will help you build a story and help shape the world.
2. PvP, Assassination, Perma-Death and War Mechanics that will enable Factions to win territories, defeat or subdue other factions and change the course of the story.
3. Character-Creation expanded. Our custom character creation system will let you set your age, race, marriage/adopted relationships, place you in an initial faction, and put you in a starting zone. You can play a half giant, a human, orc, high elf...just some of the choices you can make.
4. Unique Job Progression system. Players will unlock their first job at character creation, but every job thereafter is earned through events and roleplay. This will make higher tier jobs within a small circle of outstanding players. You will feel accomplished to have unique sprites in the world.
5. City Management. Factions will own at least one major city and can conquer more. They will be able to, through a single NPC, manage the tax rate of their city, purchase buildings and merchants, place and manage guards, and receive profits of the city merchant sales and rent from player housing. These cities, and their revenue can be lost or gained through conquest.
6. Passive Roleplay experience. Players are not required to grind to gain levels, as there will be passive XP rewarded to players who are in proximity of others and actively Roleplaying. Dungeon Masters may also reward experience, items, and costumes for exceptional roleplay.
7. We have no intent of ever making players use a cash shop to buy items that make gameplay easier. If we ever decide to implement a cash shop it will be for cosmetic items only.
8. Custom Player Map and Factions
9. You build it, we try it. We support creative players. If you want to create a custom headquarters for your guild, a unique player housing, or a really neat an interesting script or sprite - make sure it is but free and non exploitive and we want to incorporate it in or game. Our server is meant to be Custom!
We expect an initial launch in Late January of 2021 or early February
Our website, under construction, is at www.ragnarok-rp.com.
