One of the most popular online games today, Astral Sorcery is a free to play customizable role playing game (RPG) using the worlds own magic system. Players take on the roll of a mage who has fallen into insanity and is stranded thousands of miles from home in a strange land called the Astral Planes. The only way for them to return home is by exploring this strange world using powerful magic portals that link the planes together.
Astral Sorcery uses many of the same basic rules as other RPG’s. It also has its own unique system for powering it spells. Like all free online games, it allows the player to level up quickly through the use of skill points earned through the various quests found throughout the game. There are over forty quests to complete before the player is allowed to choose a class and start their adventure.
The Astral Plane is filled with many different planes where the player can travel. In each plane they will find powerful magical artifacts that can be used to cast their spells for temporary travel. Each magical artifact has a rank and a magical power associated with it. As the ranks increase, the spells become more powerful and allow the player to travel to previously inaccessible planes.
The player must use a special spell to travel to the Astral Plane. This is known as the Astral Gate and works like a normal portal. To use this, the player must learn to cast the Astral Spell. The higher the spell rank, the faster it takes to cast and that is what makes this game so fun to play. If a player gets it right the first time, their spell will connect and they will be transported to the Astral Plane.
Once in the Astral, players can summon powerful creatures known as Eidolons. These powerful creatures are the Astral Plane’s defenders and will do battle along side the player until the magic user is defeated. Using special tactics the player can easily take down these powerful creatures and return the Eidolon to its owners. When the battle is over, the Eidolon will fall to the ground and then recharge itself while leaving the player with their magic powers intact.
In Astral Sorcery there are no levels for the players to gain. Each magical item, the player earns can be added to their inventory to be used later on in the game. The more high-end magic the player uses, the more powerful their magical creature will become and the stronger their game plan will become.
