What does Realm of Strife have to offer?
  • Dynamic Class System: Realm of Strife uses 7 core class mechanics, each with it's own resource, unique play styles, and skill systems: Fury, Honor, Vigor, Spirit, Faith, Stealth and Focus. Each of these class mechanics can be used on it's own, or in combination with any other class mechanic, to make not just a split-class or multi-class, but an entirely new class, 28 in total in fact.
  • Limitless Character Customization: 28 unique classes, 20 levels, 7 class mechanics, 860+ abilities/spells, 190+ class oriented titles, 65+ secondary skills and many more passive or auxiliary skills and abilities, all adding up to more character customization than you could ever play through in a lifetime. At last count there was over 287 million possible builds, and that's before even considering weapons and armor
  • In-depth Crafting System:Go even deeper with your character customization, with a robust crafting and enchanting system that allows you to apply prefixes (craftings) and suffixes (enchants) to all your weapons and armor, using resources harvested as you play out your adventures.
  • Strategic Combat: Realm of Strife has a fully developed rule set that features strategic turn based combat with a focus on teamwork, tactical decision making and creative ability combinations to achieve victory
  • Community Based World Building: Our community has worked (and continues to work) alongside the creator of Realm of Strife to build the game setting. Currently Realm of Strife offers a pre-built fantasy setting including 2 continents, each with their own history, lore, factions, and exciting locales that can act as the back drop for a limitless number of adventures or campaigns.
  • The Codex of Creation: An excellent resource for GMs, containing hundreds of pre-generated monsters, enemies, and/or NPCs, with variable titles to create unique and challenging encounters for your players, no matter what level they play at. The Codex of Creation is a live resource that continues to be developed and updated regularly, including content created by our players.
  • Free to Play: Everything you need to play is available online or as downloadable PDFs from this site, for free, under our Creative Commons license
