Years after the fantasy MMORPG known as 'The World' suffered massive system failure, it has returned. Upgraded and re-written, the current incarnation of 'The World' gives players the freedom to find high adventure, embark on quests for treasure, and battle each other in arenas and tournaments. Player-Killers have become commonplace, however, and prey upon those weaker than they. Haseo, a careless player, was saved from such a fate by members of the Twilight Brigade - a guild with a legendary quest.

Will they find what they seek, and will Haseo be able to save those that mean the most to him from the unexplainable effects of 'The World'?

ENJOYMENT SECTION: 4/10
Analysis: Art 1/1, Sound 0/2, Story 1/3, Characters 2/4

The plot is still all talking but there is a bit of fighting this time. Nothing major to look at though, I... read more
