Scions of Fate, the game formerly known as Yulgang: Balance of Power is one of the most played games in Asia. It has won many awards and was recognized as the best MMORPG of the year in Korea. Hoping to reach a broader audience and the same success Mgame recently released a U.S. version.
Apparently, in Scions of Fate, you are not allowed to play a character of the opposite sex.
In this game nothing will hold you down, or bog you down for that matter.
Overall, one has to keep in mind that this game is free to play and free to download.
With so many people surrounding me often it would take me ten minutes or so to find a spot to click so that I could move!
