The Universe is a primal force known as Legal, which has both creation and destruction in its nature. Things live and die quickly in this force but there are areas of calm. In one area the goddess Teva and the world of Isya came into existence. Teva watched over the world of Isya and watched Humans and Elves being born and marvelled at their ability to survive against the odds. When Legal came to destroy Isya, Teva fought him so hard that he fragmented into many Gods. Legal kept the power of Chaos for himself but Teva sealed him away deep into the world.
When the Gods of Darkness rose, Teva fought and defeated them too but lost her strength and fell into a deep slumber leaving a warning to the Humans and Elves that they may return once more. It is now your duty to stop these dark Gods from rising again.
The classes in Fiesta Online are Warrior, Cleric, Archer, Mage and Joker. The first four are common archetype names in MMO games whereas the Joker can be compared to the assassin archetype. Each of these five classes have two branches of specialisation later in the game.
You have the option of joining a guild in Fiesta Online to gain help in understanding of the game and also dungeon running. A guild can declare war on another guild with only five minutes of warning. A war lasts an hour.
In Fiesta Online you have the possibility to use a Blacksmith to upgrade your weapons and armour. A Smithy, as they are known in the game, can strengthen your equipment - or just make it look nice. If you want a glowing sword or shiny shield, go to a Smithy and they will fix you up.
To rest in Fiesta Online you can use a mini-house. These look like giant toadstools and come in many styles.
There are many quests in the game. A successfully completed quest will give you gold, items, additional experience points and fame. Certain NPCs also allow you to choose an item from a selection. Alongside unique and repeatable quests, some NPCs offer progressive quests. To complete the later stages of these quests you will probably need to form a group with other players.
Crafting skills are available to learn, using these allows you to make potions and materials amongst other things.
Overall, Fiesta Online is a simple and lovable game with straightforward MMO aspects but stands unique in style.
Five Reasons To Love (And Hate) Free To Play
"Free To Play" is the phrase that's been on everyone's lips lately, particularly in the world of MMOs. It's the new business model that every production executive is cooing over; the model that many have come to hate with a burning, fiery passion. But is it really so bad?
Ten Things Rockstar Did Right With GTA Online
So...by now, most of you are probably aware that Rockstar kind of botched the launch of GTA Online. I mean, they seriously botched it. To the point that it was completely unplayable. At the same time, though...they handled the situation masterfully - there's a lot of stuff they actually did right.
Five Reasons To Look Forward To League's Fourth Season

Indie Game Of The Week: Magicka
This week, I'm revisiting an old favorite of mine - and one that I desperately hope you've heard of. Magicka tells the tale of one to four homicidal, sociopathic wizards, their not-vampire instructor, and an eldritch abomination that threatens to destroy the whole world. Did I mention you can blow up pretty near anything you've a mind to?
Indie Game of The Week: Huntsman: The Orphanage
This week, I'll be taking a look at Huntsman: The Orphanage; a rather fresh take on the horror genre that manages to convey fear and anxiety without any violence or gore whatsoever. It's actually pretty impressive.
Ten Ways Social Media Has Changed The MMO
Social networks have effectively changed the way we...well, do pretty much everything. We interact differently, work differently, and even view the world differently since the birth of Facebook - there's even talk that it's bringing about a fundamental change in the way we think. It should thus come as no surprise that they've also had a considerable impact on the world of MMOs.
Indie Game of The Week: Outlast
This week, we'll be taking a look at Outlast, a horror game that tosses you into the shoes of independent journalist Miles Upshur as he explores the sinister Mount Massive Asylum. Spoiler alert: it doesn't go so well for dear Miles.
Indie Game Of The Week: The Bridge
This week, we're going to take a look at puzzle platformer "The Bridge," a rather esoteric game about a mad scientist, impossible geometry, and a reckless disregard for the laws of time, space, physics, and gravity. Shall we get started?
League: Ten Tips To Help You Be A Better Support
Historically, support has kind of been the butt-monkey role of League of Legends. In spite of being one of the most valuable and vital roles in the game, few people ever seem to want to play it. As a result...there aren't all that many people who can actually play it well. We need to change that.
Indie Game Of The Week: Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs
