At first your adventures in this mysterious and unexplored continent will focus on survival and defeating the Evils that inhabit this lost continent. In the end however you will be longing for your beloved Britannia.

AOB is made using Dungeon Siege engine. Judgin from the screenshots and the newsflashe on their website, a lot of effort is put in creating new and unique nods, monsters and spells. AOB will use its own dialogue system and will cover new features such as horse riding.
The Magic system on the continent of Narcos consists of three types; Necromacy, Clerical and Sorcery. Necromancy and Clerical Spell systems contradict each other and are at odds. Sorcery is a combination of the first two spell systems.
