Tales of Pirates is a fully 3D designed multiplayer online RPG game based on 5,000 years of background history with Piracy as its central theme. First published by IGG, the game was terminated before getting revived by several publishers under different game names such as Pirate King Online and Pirates Online. The game is comical in nature and has humorous looking characters and creatures. The games scenery is splashed with bright and beautiful colors everywhere. The exaggerated movements and actions of characters as well as objects, topped with an atmosphere that is very relaxed, makes the game consistently entertaining and always interesting and fresh for newbies and veteran players alike.
The game is based on the adventures of Lance, a human raised by good, caring, loving people, Phyllis, a girl with a shortened lifespan (which does not affect gameplay), Ami, a young little girl that does not age, and Carsise, a big-buff good guy. The world they live in is made up of multiple continents and islands in which they travel by foot or by ship, killing monsters and other obstacles in their way with a wide variety of weapons.
The largest cities are all ports, although their climates are quite different, ranging from Shaitan’s deserts to Icicle’s frozen plains. It is in these cities in which newer characters slowly build up their skills and fighting prowess before adventuring into the unknown. Each fighting class does all of its class advancements in their corresponding city, e.g. swordsmen change classes in Argent, hunters in Icicle, herbalists in Shaitan, etc.
