Within the world of Arcánum, one must begin at a designated location on the map. All locations, available for starting and otherwise, are able to be traversed and interacted with. The characters in this world are capable of being almost anything, the only restrictions being creatures and deities. From any age range, any walk of life, occupation, etc.; your character may embody it. However, there is one key element to this.
Your character's choices can range from any type of level of importance. Whatever your character does to affect the world around them can have helpful or adverse results. It is also good to note that characters can, indeed, die. If they are killed, one may use another character they've signed up.
When travelling, a character must spend a certain amount of time within a place to travel to the end. Depending on their methods of travel, location, and obstacles; the time will be different.
When using magic, your player not only has access to your character's ability; but also has control over the elements: Fire, Water, Earth, Wind, Ice, Lightning, Light, and Darkness. When using spells, understand magic limitations in your stats. If you're not magically proficient, you should not be capable of using it to cover entire battlefields. The key when using Magic is to be creative while staying within boundaries. Cast barriers to protect yourself, using them in combinations. The moderators will be there to make sure it all runs smoothly.
The RP's story is not only about survival and choices, but also about growth. Make your character stronger, faster, better. A stat-system must be kept on your sign up at all times. There will be designated members, alongside myself, who will govern over these stats. Your stats, while important, are also relative. A character with lower stats will not be effective with taking on very powerful enemies; while those with higher ones have a much better chance. The judgments will be made by players who wish to be NPC controllers.
The RP follows a real-time system. Day and night is completely dependent on the time of day in real time (i.e: if it is 8 o'clock where you are, it is 8 o'clock in a time zone that corresponds with it). Each time zone will be recorded on the map. Depending on the time of day and night, certain things may happen; certain encounters and occurences can be experienced with the time of day.
