9Dragons is the first authentic martial arts massively multi-player
online role-playing game. That means you shall not be alone in The Land â€” you shall journey alongside many friends, enemies, teachers and
fellow disciples. The Land itself will be constantly evolving around
you as new cities, quests, and special events are continuously added
and updated. To help you immerse yourself in the true spirit of The
Land, our design team has paid meticulous attention to the period
authenticity of all the available cities, weapons, moves, costumes and
locations used in 9Dragons.
With this in mind, we invite you to venture forth and
Enter The Land of Martial Arts Chivalry
Once you have downloaded the game and created your own unique
character, you will soon find yourself wandering the dusty streets of
ancient China during the Ming Dynasty. Talk with people you meet and
you will begin to understand the lay of The Land, and the mighty forces
that dwell within it.
Learn some Kung Fu
are many basic necessities you will require as you travel, among them
eating, drinking, lodging, and meditationâ€”but perhaps nothing is more
essential in this dangerous world then learning some strong Kung Fu.
You are urged to find a local trainer and begin your study of Martial
Arts as quickly as possible. Mastering Kung Fu is the only way for you
to survive the harsh realities of The Land.
Enroll as a pupil of a Major Clan
Once you have learned some Kung Fu, it is time to join a clan,
seek a master, and begin your real training. There are nine major clans
in The land, each based on actual historical clans, including six that
new disciples can join, which include: The League of Beggars, Shaolin,
Wu-Tang Clan, Heavenly Demon, The Brotherhood of Thieves and Sacred
Flower. Disciples who have achieved a certain level of mastery can
later seek to join three advanced clans, which include: The Union of
Noble Families, The Disciples of Iron Fist and Black Dragon Clan.
you've joined a clan, you have set your foot upon the Road To The
Dragon, and the whole world of martial arts chivalry opens up to you
through a series of noble quests. In 9Dragons, the historic codes of
martial arts chivalry form the basis for an unlimited number of
adventures where you will meet unique characters, ponder noble truths,
attempt perilous quests, and encounter terrifying monstersâ€”the likes
of which you have never seen before.
Test yourself in Battle
If your thirst for combat is not quenched by fighting through the
thousands of beasts, monsters and opponents that The Land has to offer,
there are still more opportunities to test your skills. You can engage
with your fellow disciples in Clan Wars, which are grand scale battles
that pit your clan against the minions of other clans. Or, to settle
more personal disputes, you can make full use of our Dueling Facilities
and go head to head with other players. We also offer two options for
general play: Pleasant Servers where combat between players must be
proposed and accepted, and Player Kill Servers, where the dangers of
The Land are greatly increased in an anything goes atmosphere.
Follow The Road To The Dragon
As you journey, your clan's adversaries will defend their hidden
treasures from you with their secret arts, as one might expect... but
unlike other games that have no final agenda, the elusive secrets of
the lost Nine Dragons shall be discovered by those who seek them.
May the seeds of The Dragon thrive and blossom within you.
