MMORPG.com A Tale In The Desert Correspondent Clarence Krueger II writes this look at monuments in the unique player-oriented MMO.
One of the more unique features of ATITD involves the monuments. In each telling the citizens of Egypt strive to achieve the raising of seven monuments. This goal is no easy task. In ATITD there are seven disciplines with seven tests to each discipline. These seven disciplines include: Architect, Art & Music, Body, Harmony, Leadership, Thought, and Worship. In each discipline there are seven tests and seven related ranks. These ranks in order are; Student, Prentice, Journeyman, Scribe, Master, Sage, and Pharaoh's Oracle. The overall goal for any telling is to have at least one citizen of Egypt achievement rank of Oracle for each discipline. This is just the beginning of the task. Once an Egyptian achieves rank of Oracle in a discipline, they receive the option to build a monument. This is a major undertaking that involves all members of the discipline in all ranks.
