Grand Aera Online - a game fueled by the seemingly impossible promises of a developer and the budget to rival a small nation’s. You’ve been waiting for years, and in a surprise move the game is releasing tonight. You eagerly return from your high-school, fire up the download, and get immersed in the game in a way you never thought possible.
Will you attempt to return to your world? Will you decide to stay in this new exciting continent? Will you create the most powerful guild? Become the best in the top raid team? Will you attempt to hack the game? Or will you find out the truth and save this new land, and more?
I’m looking for feedback on all levels. Spelling errors and grammar problems are bound to be around… If there’s an option you would like I’d love to add it, if it works, and if there’s something that’s off please give your opinion on it.
Item generation will have bugs. Please send them my way.
It’s in its infancy, so it is quite short right now. There are also a few things I’m unhappy with - primarily the school section and what immediate purpose it serves.

The current priority is the combat system. I really want to get it out to you guys to test so that I know if it’s fun or not. I’ll explain more about it when I post the link to it, but it will be the next update instead of a story update.

Thank you all so much for testing and playing. You’re feedback is always appreciated, and I sincerely hope you enjoy it.
