Secret of the Solstice Overview
Secret of the Solstice was a free-to-play fantasy MMORPG from DNC Entertainment and Outspark that featured cute anime styled graphics resembling classic RPGs and 2D sprites on 3D environments. The game's story concerned the land of Xen, where a princess challenged her sister for the Solstice Sphere, an ancient powerful artifact and with it, the right to rule. Players entered this divided land as Xenians and could advance into one of the game's four base classes of Squire, Apprentice, Neophyte, and Acolyte, with several sub-specializations.
Secret of the Solstice featured questing and story missions, pets, trading, and a recycling minigame where players could turn in old items for a chance to transform them into better ones. There was also an emphasis on crafting enhancements for players and their pets. The game offered a couple of PvP modes as well as other in-game events. Secret of the Solstice was shut down in August of 2011.
