PlaneShift takes places inside a massive stalactite called Yliakum. Players start in Hydlaa where they will begin their journey. PlaneShift offers 9 playable races. Each one has their own homelands and unique characteristics.
These races include standard fantasy types like elves, dwarves and winged amphibians, as well as humanoids made from rock and humanoids. Although underground, life can still be achieved because an Azure Sun crystal draws light from the planet’s surface.
PlaneShift is a classic Multiplayer Role Playing Game. It features exploration, magic, team-based combat, and quests. Exploration and learning are the main goals of the game. You can do this by reading books, or by talking to NPCs about the world.
Quests allow players to improve their characters’ skills. The game is heavily focused on Role-playing (RP). The Game Master team promotes In-Character (IC) behavior and speech.
