Story

In a time of strife between God, humans, and demons...

Scarred during the gruesome war and avoiding total destruction altogether, God, humans, and demons manage to enter into a truce...

But after 1,000 years of fragile and forged peace in Rune Midgard...

The lengthy peace eventually led the humans to forget their memories of the scars and hardship from the war. As they forgot faults of the past, selfishness, corruption, and arrogance slowly spread throughout the land...

Finally, the balance of peace broke and strange occurrences started happening. There came a strange howl from the boundaries that divided God, humans, and demons. Peaceful creatures became aggressive and attacked innocent villagers. Violent earthquakes ripped whole continents apart. Great hail storms drove some species to the brink of extinction...

The mysterious legend of demons were rediscovered...

As the fragile peace began to fall apart, stories about the parts of Ymir protecting the peace began to spread among the adventurers. Forgetting the true nature of the ancient relics, people set out to seek the pieces out of selfishness and the promise of wealth that would come with it...

Game Account Creation

First, register a game account. It is important to enter your real birthdate and e-mail address and it is required to activate your account and keep access in case you forget your password! Also make sure to read the ingame rules by clicking on the "Terms of Service" right above the "Create My Account" button. Confirm your account by clicking the link in the activation e-mail which has been sent to you. Account creation and playing is absolutely free but creating more than 1 player account per person is not allowed.

The gender entered during registration will not affect the gender of your characters in the game. Gender can now be chosen upon creating a new character which means it is possible to have both male and female characters on a single account. It is also possible to change the gender of your character later for a fee (ingame currency, not real money).

Make sure the ID and password are complex enough so that people won't be able to guess them. Also, sharing account information is not recommended. Doing so may place the account at risk of being compromised.

Cancelling

To quit playing Gathering Ragnarok Online, simply stop paying for the account. This allows the player to continue at a later time.

Upon notifying the GRO GM Team to terminate/cancel an account, the account will not be blocked. There's an ingame mechanic to set a password to if your account gets compromised, they can not move or destroy your items.

Game Server Types

When GRO is started, the patch client will download updates for the game. After the updating is complete, it is time to login. Input the account information. Sharing an account would be detrimental should the account be hacked and restoration be required. It's strongly recommended that account information be kept secret.

An account can only be logged into the server once at a time.

After logging in, simply create a character [or choose one previously made] and join in! Enjoy Gathering Ragnarok Online!
