Grim Saga RP - Grimdark Fantasy [18+ RP-PvP]

, ,

Grim Saga RP is dedicated to text-based roleplayers and lovers of grimdark stories alike, which defines our settings, ruleset and server philosophy. The Hyborian world is a dangerous place and we aim to replicate that with the added challenge to the environment and the possibility of dark beginnings, journeys and endings to a character’s story.

Every action you take, both in character creation and in-game will define your experience. Gods and culture will matter greatly, be that in divine rituals or in the forging of alliances. Will you survive and prosper? Or fall victim to the brutality and many horrors of the Exiled Lands.

Server features include:

Rich Lore
Our server lore is set within the Hyborian world, you are a lost soul tossed into the Exiled Lands for one purpose or another. However, we wish to expand on both the game lore and the world’s lore, making it darker, grittier and with a whole host of monsters. Our lore takes inspiration from Howards’ own work as well as the Conan RPGs as well as real-world myths, cultures, Warhammer Fantasy, Lovecraft, The Witcher, World of Darkness and many other fictional universes. All with the intent of creating a unique and dangerous roleplaying environment.

Deep Server Story
Discovered through our robust magic system and Game Master run events, however, a story that is constantly changing through the actions of the characters that find themselves trapped in the Exiled Lands.

Ritual Magic
Magic is a powerful tool for the would-be sorcerer or religious fanatic, however, magic comes at a price. Want to bring down a plague on a nearby town? Find the right patron and do what they demand and you may taste a flicker of their power. However, the gods are cruel, perhaps you will be the first victim of this new plague. Forge your own pact with a demonic creature and attempt to bind it to your will, or risk it taking control of your mortal shell.

Endless Options
Various creatures and corrupted humans stalk the world of Hyboria. And we aim to allow our players to experience them first-hand. You can play as Vampires, Werebeasts, Hellspawn, Inpu, Serpentmen, Deep Ones, Beastmen, Giant Kin and many more. These races have been made to fit our setting and are controlled to maintain an RP balance. Human characters will also have the option to spice up their already diverse backgrounds with various sub factions to pick from, be that religious cults or zealous monster hunters and so on.

Character Applies, Not Just Player
We want your character to fit in the world of Grim Saga in every aspect — from backstory and name to character stats. Especially Supernatural characters. As such you will need to get your character concept approved by filling out a character sheet and having it approved by Game Masters before you make your way onto the server. This is to ensure that there is a balance of human and supernatural characters in the world.

Players can start at level 60 with starting kits.

Custom Server Mod - Created for immersion and adjusting balance/diminishing PVP meta.

A mix of tabletop RPG options and integrated game mechanics.

Gated mature community.
