What is Imperian?

Imperian is a multiplayer text based RPG ( text role-playing game) set in a fantasy-based world.

The difference between Imperian and other games is that Imperian is played entirely in text with minimal graphics. This genre of games are called MUDs or Multi-User Dungeons.

Characters in Imperian talk, trade, fight and even kill each other. They roam the countryside and explore dungeons, killing foul creatures, gather gold and treasure, while increasing in power and prestige.

Player vs Player Combat

Imperian is all about PvP. The game world hosts several systems to encourage fighting between characters.

  • City Raiding system with objectives you can capture.
  • Obelisks of Power to capture on distant islands.
  • Shardfall Locations to fight over every few hours.
  • Powerful Leyline Intersections which must be influenced.
  • Build or defile Holy Shrines to the entities of your choice.
  • Participate in the Champion system to see who reigns supreme.

Combat is not the only to compete with other players. Can you master the political system? Can you become a master merchant, putting your competition out of business?

The History

Imperian has a rich history, covering four distinct ages, spanning back to the creation of the gods and world to the modern period.

Learn about the three different realms of existence. The Demonic and Spiritual realms mimic the Material realm on which mortals primarily reside. Beyond those, there are the various elemental planes, which may be called upon with various forces of power and manipulated by mortals.

Learn about the  Breaking of the moon, which unleashed magick upon the world and led to the creation of three distinct powers in the heavens.

What is a MUD Game?

They're the original massively multiplayer real-time online games. Before there was World of Warcraft, there were MUD games.

They aren't single-player text adventures like Zork or choose-your-own-adventure games. They're very much real-time and multiplayer.

Ultimately, you can think of MUDs vs. graphical games as books vs. movies in some respects. Just as many people feel books are more immersive than a movie, many people feel MUDs are more immersive than graphical games.

Are you one of those people? Only one way to find out. Try out our game world right now!
