About us
Our Vision
With Ember Sword, we’re building the next generation Free to Play MMORPG experience — a re-thinking of what an MMORPG can be. We believe in game design principles that cultivate a player-driven community, where you can form life-long relationships by embarking on epic adventures. Through instant accessibility we strive to give everyone the opportunity to experience the unique world of Thanabus. Finally, we believe in empowering players, by sharing the revenue generated on Thanabus with our community through true ownership of digital assets.
Ultimately, Ember Sword is more than just a game, it’s a community, a world, an economy.
