Imperian is a multiplayer 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.
- A 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?

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.
