A Tale in the Desert Overview

A Tale in the Desert is a highly unique game, both in and out of the MMORPG genre. In 2015, it was relaunched and is being updated regularly by the new Pluribus Games company. The primary focus of this MMO is on ancient Egyptian society, and dwells heavily on crafting, trading, and the day-to-day social challenges of the era. There is no combat here. Instead, players are called upon to engage in personal, group, building, research, and community 'tests', replacing traditional confrontational MMO gameplay with teamwork.
