Introduction

Dungeons and Dragons, the stories of Tolkien and the Ancient Greek myths are the foundations of this realm. From the first moment you enter First Age, you embark upon a journey of the imagination where strange and wonderful things occur.

First Age is a real-time game, similar to an online dungeons and dragons experience. You can develop your own character and interact with other real life beings such as yourself, as well as imaginary ones. Avalon is a continent of legendary figures and their detailed histories, both past and in the making. Nothing prevents you from becoming one of those legends. This remains true to the idea of an online dungeons and dragons world, where you are in control of your destiny.

Step into this world and you may become a major character in the next unfolding tale of heroism and villany. But beware, First Age is played in real time. This means that as you are thinking and acting, events will continue to progress around your character. While you proceed with your own life, there are others who are doing the same.

The world will always be growing and evolving around you and you'll not be able to help but to be included in its continuous history. It is not just a game, an online dungeons and dragons replica, but a second life in which the world of Avalon, brilliant and beautiful, swirls around you. Here you may build yourself a reputation, become a respected or feared member of society, act for the purposes of good or evil, drive great engines of war or be a diplomat of peace and learning. No matter what, your actions will shape the world where you live. If you are so bold and adventurous, the ultimate quest for ordination and immortality awaits.

However, only experiencing the Land for yourself can fully prepare you for what is in store. This introduction cannot be comprehensive. Too much exists to be contained here, but perhaps these few pages may give you an idea and a hope that will carry you through your younger years.
