    Player Controlled Organisations

    Being a member of a city or commune means more than just political affiliation, for it creates an actual, spiritual bond between the member and the nexus, enabling that person to draw power from the nexus.

    Customizable Player Options

    Though not all Elder Gods splintered into a race nor all mortal races came to be in this manner, it remains true that all Lusternians believe that within each of them is contained the fragment of a god. Thus it is said that the god-fragment within can potentially evolve through the cycles of birth and rebirth until perfection is achieved and the fragment is made whole, becoming a divine in his or her own right.

Player-Driven Politics

Each city, commune and guild organization is run by a government made up of elected players and player-appointed players. One of the major responsibilities of a ruling council is to keep the energy reserves of their nexus of power high. There are power quests which its members can perform to help replenish the nexus, but one of the major methods is for players to influence villages and bring them under their sphere of control.

Constantly Evolving World

Each year brings a new overarching story line interwoven through major events involving the world at large. New areas, quests and content are available at regular intervals with news posts archiving events for everyone to see.

Engaging Player vs Player Combat

Combat in Lusternia is handled different for mobile vs. player combat and player vs. player combat. Player combat involves much more than simply inflicting damage on your opponent. Not only can individual body parts be damaged, with different, harmful effects resulting from enough cumulative damage on a body part, but there are hundreds of afflictions that can be inflicted on an opponent.

We have a fantastic community of players dedicated to extending the Lusternian experience beyond the game!
