Oh, Atysmas Tree!

It is the largest and most beautiful of all Atysmas trees!
The Lutrykins planted it in a hidden magical place and it shelters special presents under its branches! Can you find it and harvest it?
Be warned that it is well defended. It will not be one or a few people with a saw or axe that can cut it down!
Bring all your friends and share the Atysmas Spirit!

[OOC] A mysterious Atysmas Stele will appear at the entrances to the capital cities and the Marauder camp. Touch it and be transported to the magical Atysmas Forest. You will need to find the Tree to harvest it. Bring your armor, for the tree has guardians. Bring your axes and your amplifiers. Make sure you have space in your bag for loot. Most of all, bring your friends.
The Atysmas Stele will only be active (clickable) when the Tree Boss is active. Teleporting to the forest will put a return teleport ticket into your Special Bag. [/ooc]

Gifts for Mr. Snow

Mr. Snow, a very rare snowman who talks, wants your help to find very special gifts for the Atysmas Village. The Gifts are hidden, however, and he needs your help to find them. You will find him in all the capital cities and at the refugee camp in Silan. Can you help him? He will be very grateful to you if he can achieve his goal with your help.

[OOC] Players in the mainland will need access to all four continents. Players in Silan will travel all over Silan. This event can only be done once by each homin. [/ooc]

Do You Hear What I Hear?

There is a Yubo in Atysmas Village that has something in its fur. Oh, look! It’s a flute and some sheets of paper. One of them has markings on it for a tune. Your challenge is to learn to play the flute and perform the music in special places. That will yield more information, more pieces of the tune, and the ability to write your own tunes.

[OOC] The music only plays at the client level, so is not audible in the Around channel. However, you can trade your written tunes to other players so that they can hear them as well. Created tunes can only be edited by the creator.[/ooc]

Dear Homins!

Oren Pyr, Deles Silam, Lordoy, Kamia'ata, Bankun, Woren siloy!

Thirteen years have elapsed since the launch of Ryzom! As always, we would like you to join us in paying tribute to all who imagined, and developed this crazy rootball we call Atys! To also pay tribute to the entire volunteer team that keeps the heart beating in the center of it all. The technical support and community management team, the animation team, the lorists, the Ark, graphics and level design teams, the translators, the testers, the developers, Ryzom Core and Ryzom Forge members, each person plays an important role in keeping Atys living and breathing!

Above all, we (the Ryzom Teams) would like to express our gratitude to you, the players who are passionate about our universe and are vital to the life of Ryzom. If this world has existed for 13 years, if it lives within the rhythms of the seasons of Atys, it is thanks to you, your passion, and your loyalty. We sincerely thank you!

So, please join us as we celebrate not only 13 years of Ryzom, but also 13 years of Anlor Winn! We will be combining the two celebrations this year, and it will surely be 2 weeks of celebrations, mini-games and spooky fun! But beware! Those who are weak of heart should hide themselves away, because blowing through the trees, putting a chill in the air, the evil spirit Wind is coming! Who knows what it brings under its wings of misfortune? Listen for the cursed laughter of the Anlor Winn. Mouah hah hah hah.….13 is an unlucky number for some! Will it be for you?

We’re dying to see you there!

“The Saga of Ryzom is one of the more original MMORPGs we have ever seen.”
16/20 – http://www.jeuxvideo.com/articles/0000/00004555_test.htm

“The Saga of Ryzom boasts a dynamic world in which the mobs, NPCs and players all interact in ways that affect the overall world.”
7.3/10 – MMORPG

“Ryzom is the best MMORPG I've ever played, mainly thanks to its strong universe and its marvellous community. If you're searching a MMORPG where the letters RP are well used, Ryzom is the one !”
8.6/10 – Desura

Steam Greenlight

Ryzom warmly thanks the Steam community, whose votes allowed it to be greenlighted so quickly.


A few years ago WinchGate, owner of Ryzom, chose to open the game to the world for Free, releasing its code and to be the only open source MMORPG, playable on Windows, Linux and Mac.

However, maintaining Ryzom does involve costs, such as compensation for the small team of employees and payment for servers. That is why, even though Ryzom is playable as Free to Play, subscriptions are vital for it to continue.

To thank the players chosing to subscribe, certain features of the game are unlocked and certain bonuses are offered to them; an opportunity to level their characters to level 250 instead of 125, doubling all experience points gained, and access to several other means of storage.

To help Ryzom, make the choice to subscribe!

About This Game

Enter a unique science fantasy MMORPG and dive into a unique organic living world !


Ryzom is one of only a few commercial-grade MMORPGs that are fully open source: client, server, tools, and media. Being open source means that Ryzom draws on a vibrant community providing fixes and functionality above and beyond that of what the team can provide. It offers players a unique opportunity to become involved in the development of the game.


Far from being a frozen world, Ryzom is constantly evolving in regard to your actions. Will you spark another war? Will you found a lucrative commercial guild or aim for political power? What if your hunting talents could be decisive in the struggle against Kitins?

Pick your actions well, for each one of them may impact the world and its inhabitants!


Ryzom characters are unusual in that they are not bound to a class. That means you don't have to choose between being a warrior, a mage, a harvester or a crafter. You can improve your skills in all these classes with only one character; you do not need to focus on one path. For example, you can, at your leisure, either train your pike handling, put on your magic amplifiers to heal or cast offensive spells, pick up your pickaxe and harvest materials, or go into crafting a new armor or weapon.

You have absolute freedom!


Ryzom offers official interactive events (with live NPC's), regular and varied, that evolve according to your actions. Nothing is preordained!
Would you like to create your own event? The Animation Team is always at your disposal and will gladly support and assist in logistics.
In addition, many guilds are prepared to open their doors to help your character evolve!

For lovers of imaginary languages, the players and Animation Team have created unique languages. Roleplay immersion guaranteed!


Picture yourself, in front of a city gate, looking at a far hill and sighting the scouts of a Kitin swarm. Now picture hundreds of Kitins following them, moving like a united and swarming army. Huge battles call for the cooperation of a great part of the community to counter these threatening invasions. And what if, one day, the Kitin were to win again, threatening hominity for the third time?

Consensual PVP

You can fight everywhere, but only when you wish to do so. Duels, outposts battles, faction of region fights... You are free to engage in them... or abstain!

Advanced Forage & Harvest

Ryzom features an advanced havesting and crafting system.

Harvesting - allows you to dig materials from the ground depending on season and weather and your skill. It's not so simple once predators get involved!

Crafting - Careful combination of materials depending on their characteristics and colors, allows production of unique weapons and armors. Thousands of recipes are possible.

Living mobs

A powerful A.I. system allows for a realistic wildlife behavior: carnivores attack herbivorous herds, realistic and dynamic animal motions make them lively, sometimes endearing, other times worrisome. There are also mass migrations on season changes and different behavior for different species. Take your time to sit and observe the life around you, it's an unforgettable view. But be careful of predators!

Dynamic environment

Ryzom is a 3D persistent world consisting of five lush and varied ecosystems. Landscape, wildlife behavior and ground material availability all change according to season, weather and time.

Discover the beauty of the Forest in the spring, do battle in the Jungle in a rainstorm under a summer sky streaked with lightning, lose yourself in the dunes of the Desert in the fall, or relax enjoying the reflections of a winter sun on the pure water of the Lakes.

Full character customization

Entirely customizable character appearance upon creation: shape your avatar the way you like it!
