Enjoy a classic MMORPG like the very first day! Join Now

Welcome to Origins!

Origins Online is a low rates (5x/5x/5x/3x) classic MMORPG emulator, with a small team of eager people realizing their vision of this classic game. We apply changes and fixes if we consider something game-breaking or to be a bug. In most aspects we can be described as a server with pre-Renewal mechanics and official-like gameplay. Since this is an old MMORPG we modify the game in non-immersive ways to improve the User Experience. The stability and fairness of the economy and of the general game-play is important to us and we don't mind deviating from the classic experience to ensure this.

What makes us unique among private servers, other than the lack of a donation system (and related unbalanced custom items) and game-breaking custom NPCs, is our episode-based release schedule. Similarly to how official servers did, we'll be adding features and content little by little, so that players will be able to enjoy the true origins of the game, which is unfortunately no longer available through official means.

To make sure you won't get bored, we offer some fancy little features that official servers lack, such as a larger amount of hair and cloth colors as well as hairstyles, hand-picked to make sure they all fit well within the game world, and an unique skin color system.

We also offer some convenience features, such as grouping all of your game accounts within your Master Account (read: forum account), so that you won't have to remember several usernames and passwords when you log in to the game, but just one (or none, if you wish to save your login data on your computer, our launcher offers that), and all of your characters will be able to access the same Master Storage to share items.
