This 31st of October 2015, the indie game developer Mythyn Interactive will begin the next test phase of their sandbox massively multiplayer online role-playing game Linkrealms. In addition to this, the company announced the availability of the “Founder Packs” which contain unique items and grant access to all upcoming beta tests.

In late August, Linkrealms had its “Summer Beta” and with all the feedback and reports they received during this phase, this coming “Fall Beta” will see an enhanced character diversification. There will also be new four new skills — Staff Fighting, Poisoning, Constitution, and Enlightenment, as well as new spell spells added to the Sorcery spellbook.

Even more interesting for role-players, especially in a sandbox MMORPG is the world map. This upcoming beta, the world has been expanded even more, with the introduction of a new environment, the Forsaken Jungle. It is an area that is home to the Lizzogoths, a hostile race of sentient reptile warriors and mages.

Not only that, there is now a special tutorial area for noobs, I mean, newbies. A useful addition which will be especially useful for players who are coming from themepark MMORPGs.

What is a “Realm” and why “Linkrealms”?

The world of Linkrealms is divided into connected areas called “realms”. Each realm aside from public ones (such as NPC towns and dungeons) contains a portion of land which can be claimed by the players (one user = one realm). If a player owns a realm, he can customize it using the Realm Editor. A realm can include a home to store & display one’s belongings, a garden for farming and livestock, or both. The Realm Editor comes with a very large library of graphics, covering multiple themes & styles that allow each player to create a truly unique environment.

Each realm is visible & available to other players whether the owner is logged in or not, 24 hours a day. Players & creatures can wander through the realm, and the owner’s crops continue to grow. The maximum level of protection a player can set on his own realm depends on the server’s ruleset (soft or hardcore PvP).
