What is Arenascape?
Arenascape is a text-browser based
Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG),
set in fantasy world, where you can fight your friends
or monsters to gain experience, items and of course
become famous doing this. This game is inspired from
the great ex-free java game called RUNESCAPE
made by Andrew Gower and I tried
to create a similar game-world. Only on a much more
simple basis and at the same time I am sharpening
my PhP programing skills.
What do I need to start playing?
Probably any browser will allow you to play as long
as it supports cookies.
The game will run much better
6.0, M$ Explorer 5.0 and up, but, of corse,
the best results are with Mozilla Firefox.
I can create a character but I alwas return
to login page, Why?

If you can create a character and you pass login screen,
but when you press anything you return to login screen,
then you have a problem due to the way your browser
How does it work?
As time passes you acumulate turns (in the game they
are called Fights) that you can use for exploration,
to fight or to train. After every fightm (if you win),
you will get experience. If you fight another player
who is more famous than you, you will also gain fame.
You can use experience to build up your skills and
as in arena money is not welcome, (because ofcorruption
and such things), you will need to become famous to
get a chance to win some special items at ITEM ARENA.
Allegiance and Leaders
By visiting CLAN's HQ you can pledge your loyality
to a more experienced player in exchange for his/her
patronage, clan relationship and protection. In this
basic relationship the Vassal gives a small part of
his experience and creates little fame for the Patron
that in turn can revenge you and recover part of (otherwise)
lost fame in Player vs. Player battles. Every Patron
can have at most 10 vasals. Despite the fact that
he can attack them they cannot attack other vassals
of the same patron.
What is a CLAN?
A clan is a group of 1 or more players. Any Player
can form a clan with all his vassals, or vassals of
his vassals and so on will join a same clan, if he
leaves all under his leadership leave too. Any player
can be assigned any rank and in base of rank comes
powers, obligations and retributions; from guarding
vault to assign ranks, taxes or manage treasure. It
depends on individual clan decisions and game programing
Can you say some more about combat?
Basically, there are 4 phases of combat:
If you or your opponent's prayer stat is over 6 you
will cast auras.
The auras can heal you later in combat or reflect
If you or your oponent have over 5 magic you will
participate in 3 magic rounds. (If you can survive
until round 6)
- 1st time is before any other combat since magic
has the longest range. (1st round)
NOTE: after you reach specialization 4* in magic
you can sometimes animate your weapon in this round.
- 2nd time is after 3 rounds of combat as the mage
recovers some energy. (3rd round)
- 3rd time is after 6 rounds of combat as the mage
uses his/her last remaining forces. (6th round)
If you or your oponent have over 5 ranged (skill)
you will fire arrows in this phase.
Ranged is nice unless someone has a good shield...
then things can turn bad.
If you survive to get in melee you can put your weapon
in your hand and start slashing at your oponent, he
will try to do the same too. So your chance to hit
is related to your att and the aim of your weapon.
Your chance to evade enemy blows is related to your
defence + (your armour + shield)/3. All this is modified
in base of diference between both player strength
If you hit you will do at least from 1/2 damage up
to (strenght + weapon power)/10.
- Prayer - (Defensive magic)
In Preparation Round you cast an aura that protects
/regenerates hits in course of battle. If you are
not at max of your Hit points and you have any point
in your aura, damage will be prevented or you will
be healed maximum to your skill/10 (example 60 skill
mean you can recover 6 hits every round of combat
Specialization: You Aura will become stronger
and will REFLECT 1/2 damage at your oponent. Also
your aura can prevent more damage every round +1 max
healing for specialization level als
What is that "Specialization" you
keep talking about?
Specialization balances the game for players that
wish to be different. If you sacrifice other skills
in favor of the selected few you will get more proficent
and will be able to do more things with it.
- You are always warned before combat if your opponent
have some special skills and you will also be able
to see if you have any active special skill.
- You will attack better, be able to evade hits, hit
harder, etc. depending on your specialized skill.
- Specializations start to work when any of your skills
is 7 levels over your combat level.
+7 = 2 Rank
+11 = 3 Rank
+14 = 4 Rank
+16 = 5 Rank
+18 = 6 Rank
+19 = 7 Rank
Example: Example: If you have
Attack skill at lv. 58 and your Combat Level is 50
you will gain +7 atack (58 + 7=65) on Attack skill
Lv 61 if your Combat level remain at 50 you will have
+14 attack (61 + 14 = 75) etc..
What is Combat Level?
It is more measurment of total experience you have
invested in ALL skills dvided number of skills and
calculated lv from it.
Monsters use a same scale so 40 Lv monster will alwas
be harder then a 30 Lv one and probably it is strong
as 40 lv playernow.
How to get better weapons, armour, items?
You can win them in Item arena but to get in you need
that people know you, more fame you have better items
you can get.
NOTE: Items with fame requirments of 1 are basic
equipment and EVERYONE can get them.
Of course Items are limited to your Lv to so you
will not cut your hand with rune 2-H sword until you
are able to effectivly use it. In Items Arena are
only listed items that you can have. Items for your
Combat Level +5 and that you have enough fame to get.
For example as you start on your list will not be
visible Mithril, adamite items but as you advance
you wil be able to get stronger and stronger items.
Some Very strong items can only be WON exploring Dungeons
and Other Locations.
What is Fame?
Is a unit to measure how famous you are. How many
people know you. You can win Fame fast in combat winning
against people that are more famous then you.
There will be other ways to get fame .. like quests,
Tournaments, Events, Dungeons. And also if you win
against monsters much stronger then you.
Until 10 combat lv other people cannot attack you
if you not attacked them first. But after that only
thing that protect you is your skills and by sleeping
in INN wich have its costs but can be worth
If you win you will get 2 + 1/4 of fame difference
between you and your opponent. If you loose you will
lost 1/4 difference or if opponent is much stronger
then loos will be only -1 fame.
What for is Red Dragon Inn?
If you are in Arena main Yard you can log off from
Red Dragon INN and you will be partialy protected
from attack of other players. They will need to spend
some time to searh for you and to bribe innkeeper
and to do this they have to get some really good reason.
WARNING!! if you attacked and killed somone before
going in INN inn keeper will not even try to protect
you from REVENGE !!

i send resumes to ton of game companys but as im from
europe probably they dont even looked at it. And as
TIP site get in big overtrafic problems as it become
very popular I wished to get some page views to push
a banners number, but that this dont create too much
brandwich trafic. You will see that this pages are
very light and i hope they will be even fast enough
so people will like to play and eventualy make some
donations to keep site alive ;-).
