Official description
The Saga of Ryzom is a wholly original MMORPG fusing science fiction and fantasy. Ryzom Ring (R²), Ryzom's first and free expansion, evolves the Saga introducing the first ever MMO scenario editor!

Universe
Planet Atys is a living world, with five rich and diverse ecosystems. A powerful AI technology makes flora and fauna interact dynamically with each other and the ever-changing environment.

Freedom
Choose and fully customize a character from any of the four races of Atys. The skill-based action tree then allows gain experience in fighting, magic, crafting and/or foraging as well as customizing your own spells and special attacks (thousands of possible combinations!).

Roleplay
Your actions influence the story arc. Large-scale events are organized around players' wishes to provide more entertainment.

Consensual PvP
Different types of PvP combat coexist in The Saga of Ryzom, and - since not everyone likes PvP - you can choose whether or not to get involved. If you are looking to engage in players combats, the game offers various possibilities: Duels, GvG, FvF and full PvP.

Community
Available in English, French and German, The Saga of Ryzom enjoys a friendly and mature community. Ensuring good communication between players and developers is a key priority, so both can work hand in hand
