What is Arianne ?

Arianne is a virtual world. ItÂ’s a massively multiplayer role playing game you access through an Internet connection.
You choose your own virtual life and immerse yourself into a huge, wild new world, where you have an unprecedented degree of freedom to shape your own destiny.

These are the keyword of Arianne: open source, massive, multiplayer, online, role playing, game.
Open Source because we believe that you are our best developer to make Arianne a success. Your support is vital
Massive because you will have never seen so much people before.

What makes Arianne different from others ?

We try to get a full gaming experience through Open Source, you can help us improve it.
We are planning a technology that will allow better PING that other online games, and also a good game experience if PING goes up.
We are creating such a huge land that you will need several lives to cross the world from point to point.
Non player characters will have a very important place in Arianne as we will try to give them real lives and personalities.
We don't encourage player killing but if it happens only in-game rules, for example the justice system of a kingdom, can punish it.
We are now supporting Linux, Windows, BeOS and MacOS and we will increase the number of supported OS in the future.
A unique role playing system, with simple, easy to learn rules and a great freedom of action, you can do almost whatever you imagine.
Huge amount of objects, weapons, spells, races, clothes, ...
