Steam group for FP guild
If you wish to be in the guild, join the Steam group and post your SK name. I will invite you to the guild as a recruit.
Spiral Knights is an up and coming Free To Play MMO.
It is kinda like many slashers where you go in and clear dungeons, except multiplayer, and more in-depth (kinda). It's like Four Swords, in a sense.
There are a bunch of monsters to fight (Slimes, fox things, statues that shoot fireballs), along with puzzles as well (Hitting a switch )
You can team up with your friends or random people, and go into dungeons and its many levels, making Crowns (The in-game currency), and leveling up your weapons.
In a dungeon, in order to descend to another level, or to ascend back to the ground level, you must have Energy, which you can acquire by slowly getting it over time, paying money for it, both in-game and out game.
Energy is also used in crafting weapons, armor, and guns.
Did I mention this game has swords AND guns? (and bombs too)
Didn't think so.
You are also available to create Gates in the Arcade, which every town has. Gates are pretty much entrances to Dungeons. You create them by putting Minerals into them, which you collect in Dungeons.
It'd be better if I let the Wiki explain how the system works:
In the beta, you could get Crowns by donating minerals to a dungeon. The next day, you would receive an amount of Crowns for your donation. In the full game however, you receive Crowns by just donating your minerals. It is unknown to me right now if you still receive Crowns everyday.
Also, The Clockworks is the Story Dungeon, which Spiral Knights is based around of. It is responsible for moving levels around inside the dungeons found below each gate, as well as constructing gates and dungeons when minerals are put inside new gates before they open.
You are also avaible to create a guild, which is what it sounds like. You get your own chat, along with a base that only guild members can enter.
It costs an expensive amount of Crowns and Energy to create one, though. (1,000 crowns, 500 CE)
You are able to choose what your character looks like when you first start, although the selection is small, and they all have the same stats.
