MRPG Servers and Accounts
If possible, the game will have a single server, however this relies on enough content being available at launch to support the entire player-base.
Free-to-play accounts will be limited to a single character slot and 5 available classes. Additional character slots and classes will be available at the in-game store.
Initially, the game will be sold in retail stores to raise awareness and to recoup the cost of development. The retail version will include various perks, game-store currency, and items only available to players who bought in stores. Also following release, the starting area, main city, and it's quest-lines will be available free.
Ideas for perks:
- Evolving Etherial mount that levels with the player and eventually becomes a flying mount.
- Their choice of one of four upgradeable weapons
- Additional bank/inventory space
- A hefty sum of in-game currency to start out
- Points to spend at the in-game store
Six months after release, f2p players will be able to purchase an item in the game store that gives them access to the rest of the map. This is to encourage players to continue to buy the retail version.
A year or so later the rest of the world(but not all quests/adventure packs) will become unlock-able through a quest chain to f2p players.
