RF Online, originally named 'Rising Force', is a free-to-play 3D MMORPG developed by game company CCR. The game is a mixture of science fiction and classic fantasy, RF Online is set in a distant planet in the Novus system where magic exists alongside high technology. Like most MMORPGs it follows the typical fantasy setting complete with swords and sorcery, but it also emphasizes the three-way Race vs. Race vs. Race (RvRvR) concept and modern/futuristic technology such as mecha and nuclear weapons.
As with many MMORPGs, the player will select one race and fight monsters to gain experience points. RFO is populated with many different monsters across many areas.
Your character will be led through an in-game guide at the start of the game, going over some of the basic commands. From there, you will be exposed to a series of quests which will familiarize him/her with their character's headquarters. As you progress in levels you will be taken to more aggressive maps and then will be exposed to the player killer features of the game. There is one quest in particular that sends you to the Sette Desert where you will be aware of the constant presence and danger of enemy races.
There are 3 character races which the player can choose: Bellato, Cora and Accretia. Every race has their own special sub-classes of characters to play based on warrior, ranger, specialist and each race's special classes. It is also possible to cross-class a character within the races for a wide variety of options. Each race is led by the archon, a player voted into power by other players. Below the archon are four councillors. These Councillors are determined based on the number of votes received during their run for archonship. Archon positions last one week, at the end of which voting will commence again.
