Demise and Rise of the Ku'Tan


Demise - Rise of the Ku'Tan
is a Huge, Non-linear Fantasy Role Playing game (dungeon crawl/hack type) that features 3D graphics, great sound, and fantastic play in single and/or multiplayer modes, and enough races, guilds, items, monsters, magic, spells, traps, environments, dungeon and story line to keep avid FRPers playing for hundreds of hours.

The game also includes a Free game server, so you can host your own multiplayer game via LAN or over the Internet.

Demise takes place in Dejenol, where the city has just been attacked and nearly destroyed by creatures.

As you join the adventure, you will need to choose your race, the guild you wish to belong to, and then start your training to explore the dungeons below and find and destroy the marauders of the city and the source of their power.

Along the way you will encounter creatures from all manner of life, learn magic spells, increase in strenght and knowledge, find items of interest, build wealth, encounter traps and hazards, die once of twice, and have a rousing good time.
