Live. Build. Battle. It takes a Village to forge a Hero!

Check out Villagers and Heroes Here[]

Wield a mighty sword forged by your own hands and face a zombie prince in a shadowy cavern of floating mushrooms and dangling staircases. Let fly blazing arrows crafted from the trees in your backyard, or trade them for a basket of your neighbor’s freshly picked apples. Plant a garden, and join a guild. Build lasting friendships and together explore the beauteous wonder and dangerous mysteries of the Seven Realms.

Villagers and Heroes, a fantasy role-playing game with a vast multiplayer world, is easy to learn, has an intuitive user-interface, and features deep and rich gameplay with components never seen before. Providing thousands of hours of exploration and challenge, the Seven Realms, populated with quirky characters and ghoulish beasties, offers hundreds of quests and an array of different gameplay styles.

  • Villages[]: Players can join with friends to create a unique village, that they can then work together to dynamically evolve. As continued features are released, communities will be able to specialize their village with hundreds of vectors of customization, create their own sandbox dungeon, and eventually pit themselves against other villages in world campaigns we call VvV (Village vs. Village).
  • Intricate Crafting, Combat, and Build Choices[]: With our multifaceted crafting and talent system, players can design gear tailored to the specific needs of their characters. Perhaps a sword grants you a new heroic feat, or maybe it bolsters one that you already possess. Perhaps you craft a robe that has a new proficiency, so you forge it together with your existing robe through the unique system of Gnogmentation. Or maybe you have a powerful spell that your character obtained through the talent tree, and you find a ring that bolsters its strength… There are literally thousands of variations for each class, including vectors such as spells, feats, proficiencies, runes, talents, effects, stats, cosmetics, boosters, adders, perks, and more!
  • Open Sandbox World[]: Unlike other online RPG’s, the world of the Seven Realms does not focus players on a linear path. Players can choose to spend their time training in combat, working in their garden, raising animals, practicing on the lathe, developing their village, or going on a bounty run; the list goes on! While crafting in some games may feed only into combat, we allow crafters to evolve of their own accord, and even make gear that benefits them as a crafter. You can be a powerful wizard with no crafting skill, a brilliant tailor with no combat skill, or a powerful wizard AND a brilliant tailor, plus anything else you would like to do.
  • Powerful Symbiosis[]: The game offers something for everyone, and quite literally thrives on player diversity. Much like the success of a real world society, the Seven Realms functions as a whole because of the interconnectedness of its many different parts. Players are not restricted to roles, and participation in village life is not even a requirement! Above all, the Seven Realms values freedom of choice.

Upcoming Features
With the aid of Steam and players like you, we have exciting plans in store for Villagers and Heroes!
  • Sandbox Village PVP: Through a unique user-created dungeon involving the trapping and training of monsters to guard valuable world relics of the community, players will have the opportunity to engage in stimulating village vs. village scenarios.
  • More Village Projects: Give your village a distinct personality by working with your friends to customize its look and feel. Add unique styles and decorations, or increase the size of the community vault, upgrade crafting facilities, or create entirely new guilds such as the Guild of Librarians, or the Guild of Mages. The possibilities abound!
  • New Realms: Currently only three of the seven realms have been explored. Sights of great beauty and mystery await discovery!
  • More Cosmetics: Further customize the appearance of your avatar with new hairstyles, tattoos, faces, outfits, or even change the gender of your character altogether.
  • Improved Graphics: We will be adding higher resolution textures and more detailed terrains in the coming months.
  • Village Politics: As with any ever expanding community, a system of governance soon becomes essential to help maintain the welfare of its citizens. In Villagers and Heroes, that system is entirely decided upon by the players who can delineate authority as they choose, establish positions and ranks, vote for leaders, and determine the overall nature of government in their village.
What people say about Villagers and Heroes:
  • “What I really like about Villagers and Heroes is the way it loads an entire world... It’s the rare title that makes me feel as if I am accessing an entire “real” MMO….I’m really having fun with the game and have noticed that it offers a lot more than games that are much more well-known.” -Beau, Massively. Please view his full article[]
  • “If you are looking for a great game with an even more amazing community - this is the game for you. The developers are really awesome at adding new content and keeping the game unique and fun. The game is very active with players, moderators, and support.” -Current Player, Lenichole

Free-to-play Model
  • Membership in our world is free—not for a trial week, or a trial month, but free always. Nor does the game place any restrictions on player access once in the Seven Realms: there are no special zones, classes, or features that only paying members can access.
  • Purchases in the item shop, while adding flavor, décor, and convenience to a character’s lifestyle, are not requirements to succeed or advance in the game.

Played this game, since Runescape got old fast again. This game has everything I like Crafting and questing. The community is much better than any other game I have played. Everyone is nice and helpful. There are some limitations to free play, however its not game ending. You have on page for bank storage which isn't a big deal. You have 2 bags which to me isn't that big since you can get drops for 30 day extra storage bag. To those people complaining about limits on how long you can craft some things due to restrictions this isn't a problem because the game isn't made for the hardcore gamers. Its a casual game and fun to play. There are no items that allow pay to win because they do the cash shop right. This is one of the few F2P games where they actually listen to there players and try to make them as happy as possible. For anyone looking for a fun an casual game to pass the time and have fun this game is a must try.
