The story begins in the country of Oporuto in an old world named Orpesia. The country encounters an economic issue and was starving. Their trade with resource-rich Katai had been cut off by the armies of Targa, Illier, and Vespanola to the East, and to the West they were blocked by the dreadful Dark Sea.
The great Oporutan explorer,” Ferrucio Espada” discovered a new world in search of an ocean route to katai. Later on, they call the new world “Granado Espada”.
The country overspent developing the new continent, and the following bankruptcy led to the Vespanolan acquisition. Vespanola, the east-country became the subsidiary of Opresia and relieved the debts of the Oporuto by connecting the Oporuto’s holdings in Orpesia and Granado Espada. But in the end, a conflict has been started between Vespanola and its mortal enemies, Bristia of northwest in the Baleares Naval Battle for three years.
The Vespanola gave up its interest to Granado Espada. Due to social strife stemming from the Wartime Nobility’s inability to adapt to peacetime, as well as growing control problems in Granado Espada, the Queen issued the “Reconquista Policy” urging adventurous Vespanolan families to migrate to the new world and retake the land for Queen and Country.
Return to Bristia
After taking down Viscount Montoro, let’s head back to the continent of Orpesia, where the defeated enemies of Vespanola, Bristia, lie. You will engage in a new main quest line and help out the Bristian Liberation Army in setting their homeland free from the clutches of the Vespanolans.
Bristia, the region of Orpesia was defeated by Vespanola in the Three Years War and has become a subject country of Vespanola.
About Granado Espada
Granado Espada is about discovering new continents during Europe’s Age of Exploration era between the 1500s and 1700′s. The Multi character control (MMC) is the most unique feature of the game, allowing players to control a party of up to three characters at a time. The approach to this style of game play makes Granado Espada feel like a hybrid MMORPG and RTS.
Granada Espada’s automatic hunting system called ‘Keep Mode’ is a function in the game that players seem to respond to positively. Players can grow their characters and family without the “grind” most MMO’s are notorious for.
Multi-character Control allows you to control up to three characters simultaneously, similar to offline, console-based RPG’s. A powerful AI engine ensures the characters work together when fighting in real time.
Stances | Each class has several Stances which have varying level and equipment dependencies. It should be noted that each stance’s level is independent from a character’s level.
Skills | Several skills available for each stance. As stances level, new skills are learned.
UPC | Unique Player Characters can be gained through quests, and help bring a wider degree of diversity to game play with their learned stances. There are over 100 characters to add to your party of three to control in each battle. This is where the strategy mechanic comes into play, as each battle, monster or dungeon requires a particular mix of characters to successfully defeat each challenge.
