What is Ryzom?

Ryzom is an MMORPG set on Atys, a huge plantlike planet that teams with life and with danger. For me it is so many things, but firstly a home.
 When comparing it to other games, I'll have to admit that it is in a universe all it's own. But, while it has so many different areas to explore and skills to master, it doesn't take long to get tuned into the community and to learn the game.
 If you like to be held by the hand and led through your gaming experience, then Ryzom isn't for you. We in the community rely on each other for answers and for help.
 Since this is my first blog here on MMORPG, I will just give you a rundown of the game. Later I will have posts that correspond to my podcasts, that go along with it.
 Basically as a new player you start out on the starter island of Silan. There you do "missions" to learn the basics of the game. Don't get to attached to those missions, later on the mainland they are present but not needed to have a meaningful game session. Right now Gameforge (the owner of Ryzom) is working to add more "newbie" missions to the mainland, to help new players fit into the mainstream world easier.
 You start out as one of four races, the only difference being with the lore and the look of each race. Your skills are not set, because every skill in the game is open to every player, and can be learned in total over time.
 Grouping and gaining levels is not the grind that you might think. Last night I gained 5 levels in a typical session, a few hours. But, I'm not a player that only pursues levels, so in comparison to other players, I'm slow. If you go after it, you will quickly find yourself facing some of the highest mobs in the game. In fact, even at very low levels you can travel and fight with higher level players because while you are working on you highest skill, say one hand fighting, they might be working on thier lowest skill, like healing. No one is left out!
 So head over to www.ryzom.com.
I will post much more in depth blogs as time goes on, and like I said will probably talk about my podcast segments more in depth.

Usually you can achieve up to level 21 (unsubscribed) on the island but until June 21st you can go up to level 31, to insure that you can get all the quests done there. But be prepared, the mainland does not have quests like the starter isle. It DOES have quests, but they are mainly for rep and for a bit of cash. The game is very open, and you have to depend on your fellow Homins and your wits to help you out! I'm on the Arispotle server, under the name Beau if you need any help! :) Fri Jun 08 2007 8:14AM Report
