3Kingdoms is a free
unparalleled adventure which through many years of
active development has grown to be the largest and most advanced multiplayer
online role-playing game in existence. Based around the mighty town of
three colossal realms beckon you to explore their mysteries.
These kingdoms are known as: Fantasy, a vast medieval realm full of
orcs, elves, dragons, and other
mythical creatures; Science, a post-apocalyptic, war-torn world set in
the not-so-distant future; and Chaos, a transient realm where the enormous
realities of Fantasy and Science collide to produce creatures so bizarre
that they have yet to be categorized.

"What exactly is the game?"
Well, 3Kingdoms (or "3K" if you will) is a text-based
adventure. If you've been around a while, think of games
such as Zork or Adventure. In 3K, you "read" the world as you play and
interact with it, using thousands of intuitive verb commands. Want to wield
that sword you just found? You would enter "wield sword". Want to
take a closer look at that desk in the secret room you just
found? You would enter
"examine desk" and then maybe follow up with "search desk" for a closer
look. To help you out in the game, all you need to do is type "help" to
give you access to 3K's expansive help files. Beyond that, the same
files are available online
right here if you ever need them.
"Text? You're kidding me - I want graphics!"
There are all kinds of games nowadays where you can get a fancy wrapper
around a basic game concept, but we can give you something they cannot.
We can guarantee you that the world you experience on 3Kingdoms
will be uniquely yours. Why? Think about why the book is always
better than the movie. Your imagination is the key. That dragon you
see in your head will always beat out the one that some game
developer drew up in Photoshop.
"So, Multiplayer? What do you mean exactly?"
We mean just that. You are sharing 3Kingdoms with thousands of other
real people all around the world - dozens to hundreds online at any given
time. Now, not everyone is on at the same time - we all have real
lives right? Rest
assured, they will be back in a few hours to join you in your adventures.
You'll meet them, trade with them, join guilds with them
and down the road, go out on exciting adventures with them. The
community is what really sets 3K apart, and you too can be part of it.
"Didn't someone mention somewhere that this can be played from work?"
Yes, easily. Being text-based, you don't need anything more than
basic telnet to play, meaning you can keep it secret from the
boss. Of course, you'll eventually want to upgrade to a more
robust gaming client down the road, but even some of these
have strategically designed "boss buttons" that will instantly
hide the game should you find the need.
"Ok, you referred to the 3K 'community' up there? What's that all about?"
3K is a sort of family, albeit a very large one. Many of our players
have been around for years, and some even longer than that. That's the
beauty of 3K. Not only does the game change, develop and grow, but so
does the community as new people arrive to join our family.
Additionally, being that 3Kingdoms is a vast community of many real
people, there have been many opportunities for those people to meet
beyond the game. From individual couples "hooking up" on their own,
to annual, 3K sponsored,
Official Mud Parties
(OMP's), many of
the gamers have come to be good friends with other people in real
life. In fact, there have even been marriages that have resulted
from people meeting on 3Kingdoms. No kidding!
"Sounds cool, tell me more"
During your exploration of the realms, you have the opportunity to
join any of our fantastic guilds. These guilds, like the
Necromancers, the Juggernauts, the Knights, the Breed and many others,
allow you to become part of a group and gives you a place to socialize
with hundreds of other players that share your interests. Guilds also
grant you unique, special powers, furthering your abilities as you explore
the vast expanses of each realm. Beyond that, the guilds are massively
developed entities unto themselves. You may even find yourself so
immersed in the guilds themselves, that you may not even leave the
guild halls...nah, you'll get out there and have all kinds of fun
in the realms too.
To challenge you, 3Kingdoms offers you the chance to complete
wondrous quests, not unlike the legendary Quest for the Holy Grail.
These quests, scattered throughout the realms (and even across them
in some cases), tax your intellect as you attempt to
solve puzzles, find hidden items, explore dank caverns, and even
take on mighty foes to complete the quest and receive the treasured
prize. Quests range from simple tasks that take mere minutes to
solve, to the most expansive ones that may take you months to
Some of the exciting features 3Kingdoms has to offer:
