    What is an RPG?

    An RPG is a Role-playing Game. The Aveyond games are made in the classic RPG-style, with an overhead view of small characters which you move around the map, city, forest (etc). This style is NOT graphics-intensive like today's MMORPG's (Massively multiplayer online role-playing game), which have high-tech and realistic 3-D environments. The "low-quality" graphics (as I've seen some people describe them) are intentional, and a throwback to the very early RPG's.

    RPG's are adventure games, thus you will have a lot of traveling back-and-forth - it's part of the charm of these games Explore everywhere, click anything that looks even remotely interesting, talk to everyone and SAVE OFTEN!

    The point of this kind of game is to immerse yourself in the story. Generally you have a series of quests to complete in order to reach the overall goal of the game. Along the way you'll meet new characters (who may join your "party"), battle monsters to gain experience and money, which is used to gain levels and buy new items/equipment to aid you on your quests. These games tend to be VERY long, so if you like the genre, RPG's are a GREAT value for the money!!
