I somehow found my way to Requiem. It’s another free MMO. It’s biggest “selling” point however is the fact that it is “The world’s first horror MMO!” Since it was free, I wasn’t too reluctant to jump in…
The first thing to do, of course, is to make a character.
Since I wasn’t too worried about the name, he became “Donato.” Original, huh?
Here I am, looking cool in the actual game.
Anyway, the first thing that I see is some guys all up in each other.
After a moment to recuperate, I encounter Latona.
Aw, yeah. She encouurages me to go visit with important people in town, thus giving me my first quests. I head towards the town, which is named the oh so mystical and fantastical, Kurt.
It’s no Stormwind, but I guess it’s not bad. Following what my quests suggest, I go meet the mayor of Kurt. He’s quite a jolly looking fellow.
He points me over to my next quest point, the tavern. However, unlike other MMOs *cough*WoW*cough* there is no point on the map or even a map of the city for me to follow. So for ten minutes I find myself wandering around Kurt. In my lost search, I meet up with this guy:
I then made a promise to get myself a badass mount before I quit. Before I make it to the tavern, I come across my class trainer. Here is where I get my first “Go kill X monster Y times” quest.
He also tells me to find another class trainer guy. After two seconds of searching, I find him.
From this guy, I get access to my skills! Now I can do stuff other than attack!
After talking to those two, I’m up to level 3. Aw yeah, I’m feeling good. I’m looking too.
After some more wandering, I find the “tavern.”
I get kind of annoyed that they try to pass this area off as a “tavern.” However, the game instantly redeems itself when I meet my quest NPC.
I finish up my quest and decide to venture outside to kill some monsters.
I found some monsters and quickly slay them.
The dying animations are kind of cool. Instead of just dissappearing immediately, the monsters spasm and squirm around for a bit. I return to town, turn in the quest. This leads to another quest that requires me to obtain 4 Relic Fragments. This turns out to be a lot easier than I expect.
This was the last quest that I did, before I logged off. I realized that I could of done it all, had I the prior knowledge, in about five minutes. Oh well, I got some cool equipment from all the questing at least. I look so cool now. I went from this:
I’m just looking so badass…
