Released in 2002 by Gravity, Ragnarok Online has been one of those MMORPGs that keep a lot of gamers coming back consistently due to the pure fun nature of its play. Divided into a series of maps, players exist in a fast-paced fantasy world with massive amounts of character customization to quell the forces of baddies sprinkled throughout the RO universe.
Several expansions have been released over the years, and the most current is outlined in the above trailer. In Episode 14.1 Bifrost, we can expect new quests, zones, and mechanic tweaks. For full patch information, head to RO's Update page.
The guardian of the Bifrost, bridge between Midgard and Asgard, began losing it's soul to lyrical-like temptations. As thousands of years passed, she wondered why she used all of her strength to guard the Bifrost. She became confused and chose to seal herself up rather than live in fear.
When she could no longer resist the lyrical temptation a massive crack broke through the bridge connecting Jotunheim and Alfheim, causing the the two worlds to be severed.
The passage through was now nothing but a mysterious fog.
With the origin unknown, no one dared pass through.
Some adventurers have chosen to enter the fog but none have returned. Their fates have likely fallen into the same path as the nameless guardian maiden who locked away her confusion and despair into the dense fog.
