Over on the Blade & Soul community forums, fans of the game have continued a tradition that has ran since January this year. Players are keen to show off their characters to the rest of the community, here are a few examples:
The MMORPG Blade & Soul is based around a Korean fantasy martial-arts style developed by NCSOFT. It released in January 2016, having been first announced back in September 2012. The game itself combined martial-arts style combat with qinggong; a Chinese style of martial-arts. Taking place in an open-world environment, Blade & Soul offered a familiar recipe to fans of the MMORPG genre, with players creating their own character to explore the world in, with the choice of both PvE and PvP gameplay. They would then traverse said world completing quests for NPCs in order to progress. Other features included a real-time battle system to trigger a series of combo attacks, a trait found in most fighting games. Another familiar inclusion is the downed mechanic, giving players the chance to recover when nearing death.
An anime adaptation of Blade & Soul has also been made, which began airing back in April 2014. The story revolves around Alka; a female swordsman on a mission to avenge the death of her teacher.
