What is Ember Sword?
Ember Sword is an online MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game) game where players take on the role of a game character which takes place in a dystopian fantasy universe driven by players with a fast-paced combat and classless system.
Players can create a character, choose a Home Nation, and venture into a fantasy world with their weapon of choice to prove the strength of their character in a classless combat system, defeat monsters, bosses, and other players or explore the world as a rare item merchant, make a name for yourself as a skilled craftsman, and more depending on what the player desire.
Ember Sword is creating a new MMORPG experience like never before with the idea of what an ideal MMORPG should be for players and a truly player-driven game design.
The game aims to provide the chance to experience a unique world and believes in empowering players by sharing the revenue generated on Ember Sword with the community through owning NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) and other digital assets in the game.
1. PvP (Player Versus Player)
Embersword PVP battles are based on the player's skills (good skills defeat good equipment). For those who want high stakes, they can fight against other players in the Outlaw territories. If a battle is won in the Outlaw territories, players may be rewarded with a rare card that records the great achievement that the player has done to obtain the card.
When players obtain a complete set of cards in each collection, they can unlock Cosmetic Items to decorate their characters or resell them to other players.
2. Players PvE (Player Versus Environment)
The world of Ember Sword is filled with unique monsters and beasts. To be the number one player amongst all other PvE players, you'll have to fight every day to be the first to kill randomly spawned bosses around the world.
After killing a boss, you will have the opportunity to earn rare rewards that will allow your legendary battles against bosses to be recorded on the card. Collecting a full collection of cards unlocks a Cosmetic Item, which can be freely used for any purpose such as keeping it as a collection, exchanging, trading, etc.

All Cosmetic Items in Ember Sword are limited in quantity. In each month, players can acquire Cosmetic Items through PvP and PvE, or sometimes on sale during the festival with different themes according to the festival. After that, those items would not be up for resale ever again.

World of Ember Sword
Ember Sword is planned to be an exciting and ever-changing platform to ensure a different experience every time the player connects to the game.
The world is divided into 4 nations: Solarwood, Duskeron, Edisau and Sevrend. Players must choose one Nation as their home nation during character creation. Each nation has three types of territory: Kingship, Wilderness, and Outlaw.
The Outlaw territory is the most dangerous territory and lies on the border between the two nations. This area is a source of rare resources, high-level monsters, but also contains high risks. Whoever the player encounters will be able to attack. In addition, the player can also fight to take control of the outlaw's camp which will reward players with a rare collectible.
Wilderness territory is a PvE area rich in resources, monsters, and NPC (Non-Player Character). If players encounter other players from the enemy nation, you'll have a chance to attack them. Bosses in the Ember Sword World will spawn in the Wilderness and Kingship territories. Encountering the boss and killing them will provide rare rewards or even Cosmetic Items.
Kingship territory is a PvE-only area, such as finding resources, NPC, quests, etc. This territory is controlled by players through 160,000 plots of land.
