URPG is an open-world collaborative multiplayer game. After creating a character from one of nine distinct races, you'll decide on what they should do. Characters are usually focused on either Society or Adventure.
- Craft: blacksmithing, tailoring, cooking, alchemy
- Utility: repairs, butchering animals and monsters
- Gather: ingredients, herbs, mining
- Generally stay in one settlement, start families
- Delve into mines and dungeons for loot
- Bring back loot to aid in crafting
- Spend their surface time training
- Explore the open world more comfortably
Characters are free to skill-up however they like, of course! It is handy for an adventurer to be good at mining, for example. Sometimes a generalist is preferred in smaller settlements.
Coming in Playtest 2.
Roleplay invokes the world's greatest storytelling engine: your imagination. Design your character, decide their motivations, and engage with other players to create unique stories. The more you get involved, the more memorable and rewarding your experience will be.
Player stories are bolstered by permanent, authored content written by the developers. The open-world is full of hints of a greater lore. If your character receives magic, it's always a call to adventure.
Composite Crafting System
In many games, crafting can feel like a chore. In URPG, we made sure crafting is fun and engaging.
Our composite crafting system means any item can be created from multiple valid materials. For example, a sword may be crafted from many different types of wood, metal, stone or even bone. Its resulting weight and damage are based on items used to make it.
Nearly every item in the game is customizable, too: you could name that sword and write a detailed description for it. Or tell your town blacksmith what you'd like out of a weapon or armor, and they'll design it custom for you.
Dynamic Open World
Outside of home cities, players are able to build their own player-run settlements. URPG offers a legal system to help run these settlements.
Write With Confidence
Whenever you submit prose into the system, be it roleplay or through custom item creation, a record of it is permanently saved. URPG is a great game to improve your writing skill!
Through our Inbox feature, we make sure you never miss any roleplay you're involved in, and the Inbox helps keep you from having to scroll your feed just to keep up with the ongoing story.
We offer sound and ambience to listen to while playing. URPG will play ambient soundscapes relevant to where your character is in the world. If you're exploring a forest, you'll hear the sound of wind through the trees. If it's raining, you'll hear the sound of rain in the forest. It's not uncommon for players to leave the game open just to enjoy the looping ambient soundtrack. :)
After the game's release, we'll start work on living ambience, playing sounds that are relevant to what's happening where you are. Hear the blacksmith's hammer hit the anvil, hear the growling of the beast lurking right around the corner in the mines below.
Immersive Racial Features
When you choose a race for your character, it doesn't just bring a unique feel to your own experience through abilities and other mechanics. You'll spawn in your home city, built with your race in mind. The Infernals prefer to construct with bone and metal; the Golems simpler and larger structures. Lore is hidden in their constructions. You'll want to play each race at least once!
