About "The Repopulation" "The Repopulation" is a Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG) set in a futuristic world. The game offers a host of features to MMORPG players over and above what is now available, such as full sandbox play, city building, random engagements, player and city sieging, and many more. As a sandbox oriented MMORPG with an eye on innovation, in "The Repopulation" the players have the freedom to walk the path which they enjoy the most, rather than being forced down a set of preset paths.
The action takes place on the planet Rhyldan, with the only known remaining human population fighting for their very existence. The indigenous life forms did not meet the colonization efforts with open arms. Worse yet, humans have managed to splinter themselves into warring factions.
The player starts in Plymouth City or Freedom Town, a new human settlement, where differences over DNA control and cloning have split the population into three factions, which are now at war. The players have the option to join and go to war with the "One World, One Nation" faction, the "Free People's Republic", or form their own independent "Rogue Nation". There are many other splinter factions that the player can engage with along the way.
