Fractured is an open-world fantasy sandbox MMORPG which blends action combat with fully interactive environments, appealing equally to lovers of competitive and cooperative gameplay. Jump right into the fray from day one. Defeat your enemies with skill and wit, not equipment or level. Gather resources, craft, trade and venture into legendary travels as a solitary hero, or start a settlement with your guild and grow it into the next empire. A true sandbox MMORPG, Fractured lets players pursue the gameplay they enjoy, create the type of character they enjoy, and focus on doing what they enjoy.
Fractured Key Features
Unique And Dynamic Setting – Explore the universe of Fractured, which is spread across three planets – Arboreus, Syndesia, and Tartaros. Travel is an important part of the game experience; unlike many traditional MMORPGS, players must find a way to survive as they traverse the worlds. In addition, eclipses, unique PvE events, have a huge impact on the lives of demons and humans. The state of the universe, and even the position of planets, matters!
Race Is More Than Cosmetic – The race you belong to has an actual impact on game mechanics, from the type of society you live in to the ways you can interact with other players. Choose a human and live in – or at odds with – a feudal society. Be a beastman, and live in harmony with nature. Or, choose a demon, and slake your thirst for blood and revenge!
Crafting That Matters – Finding a broadsword in the corpse of a rat sounds a little unlikely? Forget about old RPG clichés and enter a world where every item is crafted by players. Exploit the uneven distribution of resources to get high profits when trading at faraway markets – but make sure you reach your destination alive!
Get Into The Action – You do not need to grind zombies for 80 hours or reach some level limit before you can join your friends on adventures. In Fractured, you can take part in any content from the first day in the game! The Knowledge system offers power and flexibility, allowing players to develop exactly the character they wish to play.
Action Combat Evolved – Fractured melds the combat style you’ve loved in single-player Action RPGs with a complex sandbox universe. Learn to aim, dodge and master over 400 abilities and 40 unique status effects: only your skills and tactics will lead you to victory! The environment is fully interactive, and can be used to give you an edge in your adventures.
It’s time for Kickstarter-replica packs to say goodbye: alpha 1 access, lifetime VIP and limited offers will soon be gone!
On August 1, the Fractured store will be overhauled as follows:
* Current pledge packs will be phased out and three founder packs will be added. The cost of access will be the same as current non-sale prices (€25 for Beta 2, €50 for Beta 1, €90 for Alpha 2), but the new packs will be less value-oriented (less Gold, VIP time, etc). Alpha 1 access won’t be available in the new store!
* You’ll be able to buy Dynamight Gold…
* and spend it on cosmetics (pets, housing decorations, skins, etc).
STATE OF THE STORE
For your convenience, here’s a recap of what’s left in the current, soon-to-be-gone store:
* All the 2.5k and 5k packs are gone, aside from a single Warlord of Tartaros. Poor lonely pack, will it find a home?
* All Aristocrat and Creator packs were also gone, but we’ve been contacted by some community members who really regretted not being able to grab one. Therefore, we’ve decided to add a few units of each for this last week!
* Governor packs are over, but town-ownership offers might make it back to the new store one day.
If you have Alpha 1 access, you won’t have to wait for the start of Alpha 2 to play Fractured again: testing weekends are coming!
* To be run in August and September, they’ll give you the chance to preview:
* The Knowledge System. Yes, it’s finally coming!
* Enchanting: fine tune your equipment to fit your character’s build.
* New areas & creatures: Goblins Territories & Heartwood.
* Carts for moving heavy materials: the most requested minor feature!
We’re soon going to detail all of the above in an upcoming proper road map post. Once again, we’d like to remind you that Alpha 1 access won’t be purchasable in the new store. You want it, there are only a few days left to get it
If you haven't already heard, Wolcen just dropped a huge 1GB content patch yesterday (6/24/2019). They added a lot of good stuff, and they are really moving along in the development path. If you haven't heard of "Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem" before, it is an Action RPG similar to Diablo III that is being developed for Steam by Wolcen Studios. On a side note, it is on sale this week for 20% off! https://store.steampowered.com/app/424370/Wolcen_Lords_of_Mayhem/
Ok so I have been working on something cool for a game I am soon going to be getting into hardcore. The game Heavy Gear Blitz is a Tabletop War game with Minis and is very cool to play. I do not know the rules yet, but I have always been a fan of the Heavy Gear series.
The project I am doing is going to be making land ships for real life gameplay. What are land ships? Land ships are the mainstay of the armies of the North and South in the Heavy Gear universe. They range from Land Carri
Ok so over the past week I have been having more speed bumps in my life yet again. One being is my family in general is not in good health be it my father, couple of my uncles and also my one grandfather who I only have left of grandparents. Also, finalizing my withdrawal medically from spring semester and patiently waiting for what they will do with my grades and change them to just Ws instead of WFs. So, I have had a ton of stress of late and that being said I was giving though on the proje
Now to clarify before people get confused on the tags, the mecha comic is separate from the comic that will be worked on for the Enmity of Creation Project.
I had a great idea pop into my brain like earlier today and started thinking on it entirely. I thought to myself I need a good idea to start working on my artwork, something that I KNOW I will love doing no matter what. And these ideas came into play. What I am going to do starting possibly sunday, I am going to start working on a me
This week is already shot for me to do anything seeing as how I am every day drowsy from the meds I am on so doing anything this week is probably fool hardy. That being said I will try to start on stuff Sunday.
What I intend to start on is artwork, Job Hunting and get some start on the Enmity of Creation Project.
I'm debating on either doing watercolor or something 3D to start working on for my artwork. OR...something big to work on for awhile. Not sure yet. I will also be starting
I am drowsy at the moment thanks to the new medication I was put on by my neurologist. This is hopefully going to kill the migraines good. So far it's working only it has a serious side affect that I need to get used to. It's making me super drowsy right now so me driving anywhere is like out of the question. At least until the affects wear off that I'm not bothered by it anymore.
Also, likelihood of me getting a W on my classes for this semester are probably good cause the amount of do
So yeah I have been trying to do some artwork cause yep...I am withdrawing medically from this semester cause of incessant migraines that will NOT go away. This is only temporary. Will be going back to school in the fall. However, it will make my graduation date now sometime in December cause of this withdrawal. My gpa is intact, but my graduation date is not. Anyway, always a plus and minus to everything.
So, I will post what I have been working on. Been fooling around in DAZ and now
Ok so my tries to getting people interested from other discords I used to be on has failed. I was trying to get some people to help out with building the Tabletop RPG, however I found out those people turned out to be total assholes. Literally.
It's like when you leave for over a year from one server...the entire server turns into a cess pool of idiots.
That being said the idea of doing a Tabletop RPG is out of the question for now. I will try to find another means to get people int
Well my semester is getting closer and closer to being finished and first year done for masters. However, likelihood of me doing good this semester probably not good cause my health has hindered my progress. I maybe put on academic probation so I have a chance of improving my gpa next semester. As long as i pull off good grades next semester, I'll be brought out of it.
Anyway, thats not this blog is about. What it IS about is what stuff I will be purchasing in the future to further my c
As you guys can see, I have done a lot of work so far with some people and by myself as well on this tremendous project. The project is being called "Enmity of Creation" or another terminology would be "War of Creation". Each project (RPG, Comic Book(s), Video Game) will have its own title but will be originating from this same working title. They will also have pretty much the same storyline or stories intertwining with each other.
If anyone doesn't know what this is...it's a Mind Map.
Well I had this idea running since last year and I thought to myself, "Now that I am working on a Comic Book/Video Game Project that is mecha, AND coinciding with each other...why not bring the RPG into the mix." So that is what I intend to do. Yes it is a TON of stuff on my plate...however, I need to do this in more ways than one. One because I need to keep myself occupied and working on things because my life as a whole needs to change for the better. Two, I need to learn how to multitask
So, this weekend I think I will start on working on my artwork as a whole. I have been trying to brainstorm ideas for each of my strengths that I have and have come up with many so far. However, I want to do at least start on one or two this weekend.
Some of the ideas I have come up with range from Comic Book style artwork to 3D renderings and so on and so on. I am leaning on towards finishing 2 watercolor paintings I have already started and something 3D to start as well.
I think t
Well, I intend to be developing two different projects over the course of a certain time. One being a Comic Book and another being a Video Game. Both projects are a HUGE undertaking I might add, however, I am not afraid to do so. Cool thing about this is...both projects will coincide with each other in story. The genre I picked to develop both under is Sci-Fi Mecha. Now the actual storyline is going to be made from the brainstorming, mind-mapping, and storyboarding that will be happening he
For me, there is nothing not awesome about the Christmas time of year. Living in Texas, despite having near zero chance of snow, this time of year still brings something magical to my home and my family. This list changes for me from year to year, but I always enjoy making it! I'll get right to the list, please feel free to reply with your favorites!

You know those places no one wants to visit? Let alone live there, mind you. Your friends and family, when they hear you say, "Come down for the weekend," they all start making excuses why they simply can't make it. That's what I mean, a place like that.
The military introduced me to many of those places, actually. Gaming became the best escape - the chance to gather with others stuck in the same dire mess of a situation and usually wearing the same uniform, too. Something to do together wh
I was a month or so into joining an established guild called "House of Blackrock" when I met Oonagh (then Audria) and created a friendship that would eventually lead to the beginning of the Covenant of the Phoenix. I was level 12 and she was level 5 on the Darktide server of Asheron's Call. I was also just recently 22 years old and rocking my way through life in the fast lane.
I would love to say it was just so easy to formulate the plan that would eventually lead to this community's fut
Over the course of four years I have had the pleasure of being a part of this family. It brings me sense of peace to serve by my comrades, I serve with a sense of responsibility and honour to this covenant. I wish to do more to help our covenant and should any of my leaders ask of me anything I shall do it without hesitation.
How is it possible...
To hate yourself as much as I do?
To look down at yourself,
And break out in tears because of what you see.
And there's nothing you can do about it,
But try to change,
And be somebody you aren't.
Try to be the same person,
With a different shell,
And be perfect.
How can you hate yourself to the point you want to get rid of yourself,
Or to the point that you cut and bruise,
How can you hate yourself as much as I do?
How does one be happy?
Mari stirred next to the warmth of a fire burning near her. It was morning. She had cried herself to sleep. Beside the fire, on a rock, was a bowl full of water. She cupped it and examined it closely. She smelled it. ‘Fruit?’ She drank a sip then almost involuntarily drained the rest of the liquid from the bowl. She breathed a small sigh. ‘So sweet.’
The green canopy had been a wonderful covering from the morning shower that had set the leaves of the forest a-g
....I hate this new "master", tho I dare not show it. She is quick to kill or maim just to show her power, and while she has power, I would crush her simply if this damnable collar could be removed without electrifying my cortex. A recent visit from an un-named Lord of the Sith drew attention to me as being a Full blooded Sith under the collar which is unusual enough, but after the Lord started stating I have some small measure of force power, my new "master" has all but put me under her new i
Clothes and armor rested neatly on a marbled stone this early morning. A lightsaber nestled into the top of the clothes. The lush forested jungle echoed with the call of life. Footsteps paced along the ridge, following the path of the falls to their end, where a man stood. The grey mist lifted his spirits and the deafening roar created by the water crashing into the pool below calmed his nerves. The sounds of war could not reach him here.
Then there was a stillness. Foreign. Confused. Hurt.
For anyone who has actually bothered to read these (and this) blog post(s,) congrats, I didn't think anyone ever would. No comments, so it wasn't anything special, but oh well, everything I do is shite anyway.
Case in point; the computer I am using, and my inability to replace it. I've been trying my damndest to scrounge the money for a new one before this one gives up the ghost; I tried, and failed, as this comp will now only start in safe mode. And joy, I'm still short for enough to get a
Where to start? Game of Thrones is shaping up to be a great show, Age of Ultron is awesome, Tomorrowland sucks, Mad Max is a great return to the franchise, and, oh yeah, ISIS is running nuts!
Long story short; So long as the Iraqi army are the only ones with boots actually on the ground, I don't see ISIS being taken out. Air power can only do so much, conventionally anyway.... I really don't think people are quite to the point of wanting to see a light brighter than the sun pop into existance.
Breaking news! American Media has the attention span of a gnat and the priorities of Justin Bieber!
Confused? Let me clarify; Whilst people are dying in Nepal and the entire country is pretty much screwed, the American Media seems hilariously fixated on what is happening down in Baltimore, at least when it comes to TV and Satellite radio, with nothing but "Breaking News out of Baltimore!" reports constantly. Now, I've been keeping tabs on what is going on, and I do agree, something has to be do
