Open Beta Age of the Four Clans

DINOSAURMMO.COM - Try our Open Beta Realm (updated 5/31/2018)

AGE OF THE FOUR CLANS is an upcoming 2D MMO featuring a fantastic prehistoric setting.

"The four Raptor clans of the ancient Earth always held an uneasy alliance with one another. After a meteor devastated the Deathclaw Clan and unleashed strange creatures upon the planet, truces were made in order to find answers and return the world to order. The slime, a bizarre life form which oozed forth from the impact site, quickly spread to all corners of Laurasia, mutating native species and trashing the delicate ecology everywhere it appeared - threatening a mass extinction of all life on Earth."

 

Welcome to Beta 2.0!

We're officially THRILLED to be hosted by Intersect Hosting Solutions. We've been up basically 100% of the time and look forward to upgrading into a higher-tier server once we get the crowd to warrant that. We enjoyed 86.7% uptime during Alpha. This should significantly increase as we approach the release version. Regular maintenance will be performed on Wednesdays and the game may be offline during that time. A4C is very much playable at this point, with several exciting things just on the horizon. If you liked what you saw before or haven't taken the plunge yet, we invite you to come give us a try during our Open Beta!

 

Oh, and what's super cool is, we're running on Intersect 4.8.1! No special add-ons outside of JC's Updater and our own artwork and elements. What a blast the engine has been to work on!

 

What's new in Beta?

The world is changing. Raptors from all corners of Pangaea are under constant threat from the slime which came from the north, and clans are finding isolation to be a greater liability than asset. Raptors are not only quick to join forces with other Raptors, but other species of dinosaur as well. The Great Shattering which  wiped out the Deathclaw clan has left clues about its origin, and even bigger mysteries to unravel. As the slime continues to crawl across Pangaea, the Raptor clans are faced with the challenge of banding together or fighting this ultimate evil separately. Their very survival hangs in the balance!


Get ready as we unveil these and other exciting features:

 

Iza'Nagi and Tethys Ports Open!

Explore the city hubs and surrounding volcanic areas of Iza'Nagi, home of the Bloodfuries! Travel to Tethys, where the forests and the mysterious Spectre clan await!

 

Branched Class System!

Level up to 25 and quest to become one of nine new 2nd tier classes! Master the path of your current clan and learn extremely powerful spells and abilities, or branch into a secondary clan to gain access to their specializations.

 

New Spells and Abilities!

Trainers in each city are equipped to offer new skills, new spells and abilities to train in every class!

 

More Quests!

Explore the story of A4C as you quest throughout the world of Pangaea! Unlock hidden content and special rewards for doing good deeds (and bad)!

 

More Shop Items!

Apothecaries are stocking new equipment and items never available before!

 

Updated Chat Channels, Friend List and Social Features!

Now you can talk with other players on the main chat line or friends-only lines. Add other players to your friends list and adventure together! 

 

Epic Boss Battles and Boss Rush Arenas!

Some quests now lead to Boss battles! Test your skill against these mighty foes in combat, and for more fun and epic rewards, challenge them again in the Arenas!

You now have the ability to create multiple characters (up to 6) under the same account. Additionally, we've given you several new character customization options in the character creation screen!

Classes:

Spoiler

You take on the role of a Raptor, choosing one of three clans as your starting "class":

xtra-1.png.e4ae06a406c7eadea4683dd1e21a9e6d.pngThe Lightwalkers - A sect of highly intelligent Raptors who take on the role of warrior class. They are fair minded and have always sought peace between the tribes. Their magicks are typically based on hard-hitting earth spells and they sometimes wear tough hides as armor.

xtra-2.png.48bc0a2e73e2ea5faf02b2eab306db26.pngThe Bloodfuries - The largest clan of Raptors, these fast and nimble creatures are the rogues and assassins of Raptor society. Some practice fire magick and most like to adorn themselves with feathers and light armor decoration.

xtra-3.png.4fed17e14d1ae9a8bd6f9ac4259e18f8.pngThe Spectres - These are mysterious Raptors who are well-versed in magick. They are natural healers and warlocks, calling on nature spells to do their bidding. Some fashion armor from the bones of their enemies, which they believe grants the wearer with further power.

xtra-4.png.cccaf1398d1a75fa3ae6f90aa0c17b03.pngThe Deathclaw - Large Raptor brutes who believe themselves to be kings among the other clans. Deathclaws use their great strength and powerful ice magicks to great effect. Some even fashion and wear heavy armor made of stone. Their home and their kind were nearly completely destroyed in the meteor strike known as The World Shattering. Players will not be able to select Deathclaw as a class initially, but there may be ways to become one, in game...

Really interesting. Who would have thought someone would make a dino game with Intersect. Goodluck i hope to see more, super unique :P Maybe some more dino species than just recoloured trex's? What about triceratops? ;)

Very intringuing  !! I really like the originality of the setting ! :P

 

I'm glad to discover projects like this, that are more on the "niche" side, it's refreshing ... Not that classical MedFan background aren't good, buuuut i'd fancy a bit more diversity (zombie survival ? post apo ? space opera ? where are you ? ).

 

Well, anyway, props for your project ;)

 

Good luck !

Very much appreciate all the feedback, guys! And we're gonna be updating to Intersect Beta 3.1 probably by next weekend. Want to get some quests in, etc, this week... and build more maps, of course!

Yep, you bet! Just put in pterodactyls, and we have triceratops sprites at the ready. More to come :) I envision some really big dinos you can encounter as well.

@Lyokomzm I saw this project yesterday and my mind immediately went to places that I'm not proud of. Merman has scarred me for life.

 

/OnTopic: I love how unique this is @EVOLV I've never seen in the past decade someone try to make a game with these engines where you play dinosaurs. Keep up the good work!

Hey guys - quick note to mention that we're on downtime as of 6/3/17. Our host's new firewalls were not playing nice with Intersect and we were unable to work it out with them, soooooo... bye bye host! We're on the lookout for a replacement and are working on the game in offline mode in the meantime. 

Cheers for all the support! We'll be back, soon!

I just thought this was too wacky not to share here, too... found old instances of the game on a flash drive.

So, here's Age of the Four Clans ~2 years ago:

Stick with your projects. You never know where they're going to be in just a few months' time. This is actually the third instance of re-creating this game (fourth, if you count the 3D instance I never did get off the ground) so yeah, been a long ride, but a fun one.

I think it's obvious why he only just recolored them. 

 

This game will have a subtle play on how racism plays a role in modern day society.

 

I think this game, tho some may see as taboo, will be a beautiful exposure of the ignorance often found in the elite white culture within modern day American and European societies.

 

 

Bravo! Bravo! Very brave, beautiful, and artistic this game will be!!!! I hope to see it succeed!!!!!!!!!

Edited OP to reflect the piles of new stuff we have added since Beta. Going to do an official "release" announcement on the website and FB pages, soon. The game is up and things are rolling smoothly ever since we got hooked up with Intersect Hosting so feel free to check it out and let me know if you run into errors or bugs, have suggestions, etc. Happy dinosaur-ing!

Been a big fan of the game and your work since when it was first announced in Eclipse. Can't wait to see where you continue to improve on this project.

Well that is definitely mutual, Sky. Too, I am glad to have had people following us for so long on this, especially since we really ran into bad times when two hosts previously dropped support for the server halfway through our "subscription" to them. It's fun to see a game with a dedicated following. There are guys on our forum who were there 6 months ago like nothing happened, and that feels good. :)
