Become an Emperor ruling over one of the nine cities which are spread out across the three continents which make up Elysium, or perhaps gain favour from an existing Emperor and become one of his or her five ministers - researching new technologies and spells as the Minister of the Unknown, or even setting the tax rates and constructing vital industries as the Minister of State!
If the political world isn't your speciality, rise up the ranks in your chosen guild, learning from 20 varied skills, each skill having around 20 abilities with which you can carry out such diverse tasks as summoning demons, forging weapons or cursing your enemies with disease and pestilence.
Join your city's army, commanding legions of infantry or cavalry, making attacks upon other cities so that you may bring them under your Emperor's command! If land battles aren't your thing, the navy offers you the chance to secure your naval superiority over the other nations, through boarding or sinking enemy vessels! Whatever path you choose for your character, Elysium will provide you with the depth and realism required for the ultimate in roleplaying!
