A Look At GRAVITY's Awesomely Bloody Requiem

As my beloved MMO industry gets more and more saturated with all sorts of micro-transaction cash grabs and mini 'low resource' (aka cheap) MMOs, I find that the genres available for experimentation are gradually thinning out as well. For some companies, oversaturation of a specific MMO genre is not a problem, but most producers would agree that, once a genre and style has been 'done,' many developers would rather not follow in their footsteps. Personally, while I would be very happy if we all just stayed far, far away from making more superhero MMOs, I really would appreciate it if all of you developers out there would just ignore Requiem: Bloodymare, and just go on thinking that nobody has made a decent horror MMORPG as of yet. If you are a developer reading this, and you're struggling to find an unexplored MMO genre, take a shot at the horror MMO! As long as everything doesn't remind me of vampires, I think there's a lot of potential here.

Requiem: Bloodymare - Possession Beasts

Requiem: Bloodymare presents everything ou ever wanted to know about Possession Beasts, but were afraid to ask.

On Possession Beasts

Remnants of an ancient tribe, the Possession Beasts are rare and powerful creatures. Born from sealed relics, the Beasts are the lasting heritage of the Khun, a human-beast hybrid tribe from southeast Parness. Taming the beast sealed within the relics, Temperions can summon forth the great power of these beasts. With the brawling Giont and the intelligent Rebria, Temperions can temporarily enhance their own fighting abilities with the beast's skills. Most fighters prefer the Giont's skill, feeling their own strength and power swell into crushing blows. The caster classes stay more towards Rebria, preferring to use their wits to freeze enemies at a distance. As more of Ethergia is explored, who knows what other beast relics lay in wait, patiently waiting for a new owner to tame them and bring them to bear against their foes.

Requiem: Bloodymare Humanoid Weapon Race: Kruxenas

Requiem: Bloodymare features a humanoid weapon, the race of Kruxenas! They are cold, calculating, brutal, and we've got screenies!

Strength: Physical and Spiritual Superiority
Weakness: Won’t cooperate with other races. Lack compassion and are inhumane.

Characteristics: Kruxenas are endowed with both strong strength and spirit: they can use short and long range weapons, and can become skilled in magic. They are brutal and cold hearted since they were created to destroy, They will even sacrifice their companions to accomplish their ends. Kruxenas have no qualms over mutilating their enemies and tend to be antisocial.

Combat Style: Warrior classes use light, short range weapons to perform quick strikes, supplemented by DOT attacks. They can also use long range weapons in pre-emptive attacks. Magician classes use DOT magic to curse and poison enemies, but they are more vulnerable than the warrior classes.

Relationship with Other Race: Kruxenas were created by the ancient Natsu race to be humanoid weapons. They are unfriendly to all other races, except for Batuks since they share some of the same genes. Their wickedness and contempt starkly contrast with the more compassionate Turans.
