In the Alliance game, you create a character concept for a fantasy story and actually play the character. It is much like improvisational theater in that you have a framework created by the props and supporting characters and must develop your part as you progress through the storyline. Your character's attitudes, ambitions, and history are yours to define.
If the adventurous life is your calling, you may play the part of a wanderer, meeting with some friends in the tavern. While swapping tales, your party could get hired by a poor farmer in desperate straits, and spend the afternoon slaying a foul necromancer and his undead abominations.
If the epic life is not your style, then you can play the part of a town merchant. You can make your money selling your wares (and information for the right price).
Or perhaps you wish to be one who investigates the magical arts, selling your scrolls and potions to earn the money you need to continue your studies. The choice is yours.
We are dedicated to the legendary days of high fantasy, while running a fun safe game.
We have fierce warriors, crafty scouts, powerful mages, loyal knights, and benevolent healers. There are goblins, blood chilling spectres, evil assassins, villainous spies to battle, and your very own legends to create!
