Game Description:Lineage is an extremely popular medieval massively-multiplayer, online RPG in Korea. NC Interactive has stated that the current membership is over eight million, with a record 110,000 players connected simultaneously in Asia at one point. This fantasy world is seen in 2D from an isometric perspective, with popup interfaces.
Based on the comics by Ilsook Shin, Lineage takes place in the Kingdom of Aden, where the evil King Ken Rauhel is terrorizing the land. You are the child of the previous king and may chose one of four classes: prince/princess, elf, knight or mage. The classes differ in their combat and magical abilities, and over fifty spells are available for casting. One of the most intriguing features is the politics involved in forming bloodpledges (guilds), and claiming and laying siege to castles. As the castles are ruled by prince/princess players, player vs. player combat is an integral part of these sieges.
Lineage is also available in Korean, Chinese, and Japanese.
