An MMORPG game similar to Runescape, but has way more players. Once you start, you cannot stop. Has many differnt servers (e.i Windia, Scania, Bera, Kradia, Bellocan, Mardia, and many more depending on which type of MapleStory you play). Different types for each part of the world; GMS(MapleStory Global), EMS(MapleStory Europe), KMS(Korea),MSEA(South East Asia), and more.
You start out as a beginner in the game and level with ease. Once you get to level 8 you can become an magician, at level 10 you can become a warrior, thief, or archer. If you choose you can stay a beginner. With each level you gain, leveling becomes harder.
You can buy Nexon Cash(NX cash) to "pimp out" your character. You can get married, have a pet, make friends, make enemies, but most of all, make a new life.
You will have two separate lives, but mostly users prefer their maple life.
