The Northernmost bastion of the civilisation of Men, the Mærcians are a technologically sophisticated race adept at castle-building,siege-craft and economic expansion.
Mærcia fields holy Friars, erudite Magisters, mystical Wizards, and Knights in shining armor that strike fear into the hearts of even the most veteran soldiers.
The Wylfings are a federation of three distinct races: The ‘Aelfin’: barbarian clans of early Men, The ‘Dweorg’: strong but primitive cave-dwelling troglodytes and the ‘Thurns’: Giants that sup on humans.
Wylfings tame beasts of war such as the Giant Wisent and the Mammoth, and their druids and shamans commune with nature and the sacred forests of the North.
The Orcs are an ancient race of uncertain origin. While oft-dismissed as an old wives’ tale, an ancient codex called the “Doomsday Book” is known to attest to a time long past when they set the world ablaze. It describes the Orcs as children of the Underworld, possessed by dæmonic energy and demented beyond reason – their thirst for the blood of men matched only by their appetite to for torment.
Medieval Fantasy in a Primeval World
Alternate history and prehistory with an embodied medieval mythology: Mammoths roam the steppes, sabre-toothed cats stalk the underbrush, while towering castles hold sway over fiefdoms
MMO at Unprecedented Scale
A massive world built to support millions of players & AI. With a background smashing world records in hyperscale MMO server technology, we are pushing the boundaries of persistent immersive worlds
Genre Fusion: Survival, RPG and RTS
Your sense of self and identity are intimately tied to your RPG character. Develop your self or the world around you, whether it be as a merchant, artisan, renowned hero or the greatest ruler the world has ever seen. The choice is yours
Feudalistic Warfare and Politics
Feudalism is the order of the day! It shapes the landscape: villages and towns, fiefs and kingdoms and the allegiances of liege lords and their vassals; players strive for wealth and power; warfare and diplomacy shift borders, while adventurers and merchants find safety in towns and citadels, paying taxes where they reside
AI peasants inhabit the world. They have a natural tendency to organise into settlements and eke out a meagre living, never aspiring to anything greater than a pastoral village life. Players may annex their lands and work them to serve their ambition. Peasants serve their lords as long as their physiological (food, shelter) and emotional needs (happiness, spirituality) are met
AI minions and bosses are locked in a struggle for dominance. Bosses gather servile minions and fight other bosses. The longer a Malcontent survives and succeeds the stronger it becomes. The handling of such threats is a job for powerful heroes, but act quickly for even a petty provincial concern may grow in time to imperil the realm itself!
A World Brought to the Very Brink:
To The Edge of Order and Chaos
Play as Man, Wylfing or Orc in a land steeped in superstition, myths, old religions and menacing beasts. Find safety and community behind the palisades of villages or the towering walls of player-built citadels.
Each faction has its own unique characteristics in their innate strengths, proclivity for magic and its forms, technology, social order and political organisation. Each faction is motivated by different things, whether it be the desire of Men to spread their faith and way of life or the Orcish thirst for blood and corruption.
Where do you belong?
What is Edge of Chaos?
Edge of Chaos is a persistent MMORPG-RTS game and medieval fantasy simulation set in an evolving, persistent world called Eorthe. Emergent effects and events procedurally shape the natural order of the world, as well as the social and political landscape. No two realms (shards) will ever be alike. No two experiences the same.
Feudalism is the order of the day. Villages, towns and citadels are built, nurtured and ruled by players assuming the roles of kings and lords. Warfare and diplomacy shift the borders of kingdoms over time. Peaceful citizens of commerce inhabit player-built settlements, earning their own fortunes via craft and trade. Adventuring heroes slay monsters for quest rewards and valuable crafting reagents, or brave dungeons in the pursuit of treasure.
Edge of Chaos aims to be the de facto medieval fantasy incarnation of the Metaverse where players can stay immersed in a convincingly life-like alternate existence for the next several decades. It is an MMO game in one sense, but in another aims to re-create a fantasy existence in the digital realm, powered by distributed, data centre-scale engine technologies and the blockchain.
