Fallen Sword - A Free Web Based MMORPG

Updated on March 13, 2013

Play Fallen Sword

Fallen Sword is a free massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG).  In the game you battle fierce creatures and other players to gain experience, gold and better gear as you travel through the many locations.

All you need to play is an internet connection and a web browser.  There are over 4,400,000 registered players in Fallen Sword and all players are ranked daily so you can see how you match up against other gamers.

Warning: This game is addictive.

Features of the Game

Fallen Sword has a lot of features to keep the game fun and interesting. Here are a few of the key ones...

  1. No Ads - Fallen Sword is free and doesn't fill up your browser with ads.
  2. Auction Engine - You can buy or sell any item via the in game auction house. It includes a buy it now feature and the ability to search for items by category and/or level.
  3. Quests - While moving through the game, you may encounter a quest giver who tasks you with a mission in exchange for unknown rewards.
  4. Secure Trades - You can swap items or currency with any other player in the game.
  5. Chat - You can send messages to any player in the game. If you are a member of a guild, there is also a guild chat feature to chat with all other members.
  6. Guilds - Your guild will gain experience as its members do. Guild experience and any gold contributed by members can be used to maintain structures that enhance the fighting statistics of all members. Guilds can fight one another to control relics that also increase member stats and the guild's ranking.
  7. Bounty Board - You can place a bounty on the head of any player who has attacked you. Or, you can play bounty hunter and try to collect the rewards.
  8. Lottery - The game offers daily lotteries for the chance to win gold.

In Game Currency

There are two currencies within the game: gold and FallenSword Points (FSPs).

Gold is earned by attacking creatures or other players and stealing their gold if you are victorious. You can also earn gold by selling items in the auction house and you earn a small allowance hourly. Gold is used to buy and maintain items or guild structures.

FSPs are used to purchase upgrades to your character such as extra backpack slots, increase stamina, etc. They can also be used to purchase items in the auction house. FSPs are obtained by selling items in the auction house, selling gold directly to another player, purchasing for USD from the game, recruiting new players or participating in one of the free affiliate surveys.

Top 5 Tips For New Players

  1. Build Up Your Attack and Damage Levels - You earn level points every time you gain enough experience to level up. Apply these points to your Attack and Damage characteristics. Those will help you the most. It's doubtful anyone will attack you early on (unless you make enemies easily) so don't spend them on Defense or Armor at this point.
  2. Join A Guild - There are many advantages to joining a guild in this game. You can get increases to your statistics, more experienced members may pass you their old items and you can start or join an attack group. Check out the Guilds section of the Fallensword forums for more info on choosing a guild.
  3. Look for Bargains in the Auction House - You won't have a lot of gold so shop around before spending it. You can click the Search Preferences link below the auction search field to limit your searching to specific levels of items.
  4. Attack Higher Level Players - Remember that you can attack any player within +/-5 of your level. What matters is your attack/damage stats against their defense/armor stats. You can steal more gold from a player that is a higher level than you.
  5. Bank Your Gold - Your gold is safe in the bank, but you can only deposit gold into your account once per day. Make a deposit once you get a big stash or before attacking a new creature. You get unlimited withdrawals so the gold will be available when you need it.

      that why you still play grendel? you constantly trash the game and all the players in it not to mention you flamed the forums so bad you were banned for your inappropriate behavior. because you can't have your cake and eat it to your going to flame and trash a very good game? im sory you can't make a profit from every new thing HCS put out.

      On the internet superhighway fallensword is the rest stop with port a pottys that are not stocked with paper or regularly cleaned out,,, most people stop there because they think they have no other choice but visiting only leaves you feeling tainted and smelling like the waste of hundreds of people who came there before you.. Pass it by

      The game is slowly dying, regulars constantly say that on the FS forums. Hunted Cow is now trying to break into cellphone games, and will switch over to that soon.

      @anonymous: Reading the threads here, I empathize, as well as agree on many points. However, like anything else, you need to be careful about who you associate with online. 1.) Hacking. HC has just addressed this by warning against any further use of bots to help player development -- largley because they lead to accounts being hacked. 2.) Yes, the Cows do seem to listen to the top Guilds because some of the suggestions that seem outlandish are considered, or you as the player, are ridiculed by others and your points ingored (via the player forum). 3.) You can earn the game currency, FSPs, and lots of it, through certain activities, without ever spending your own (real) money. The big way is through the guild conflict system. Alas, now the Cows appear bent on changing that system, so there will be fewer ways to earn FSPs within the game....Thayt's my real-time take on this, as a current and active member.

      MMO's are just a geeky way of escaping from reality. Why else spent so much time in a fantasy world trying to improve a character made up of 0's and 1's?

      The game is being mismanaged by a bunch of people with inadeqaute experienced. Code is buggy, game rules are full of exploits, and customer support is widely hated for being stupid and arbitrary -- you can be banned from the game for the vague "violation" of "having a bad attitude." As a result, the game has fewer and fewer players with each passing day. it is a dieing game -- just like SigmaStorm2, Hunted Cow's other game that they recently announced they were going to no longer support.

      Because you cannot really enjoy the game without "donating" -- and will still be treated badly when you do -- save your time and money for a game with a future. Fallen Sword is going to die within a year, I bet.

      @anonymous: I agreed with nearly everyone. This game sucks if you don't have tons of money to waste on it. It's addictive but when you really see what it's about then you'll see that it sucks. It only be a while before you start seeing "Blood Golem" and "Stone Golems" where they only replace one word and aren't creative. And this game is a big bully game. I played it when the highest levels were around 200. One day one of the higher level players attacked another. With the bounty system he placed a reward on his head. This wasn't the beginning though. The guy messaged he would pay other players a lot of FPS to delevel the guy. The dude was nearly deleveled to the first level. And the GM's don't give a crap if you don't pay into the game. Overall it's a very reptitive game. My advice? Avoid it. It's a big bully game. The highest bidder always wins. Don't bother with this.

      Don't waste you time with this game, played it for two years only to see first hand that the administrators are biased to the top 20 guilds. Doesn't matter what you do in the game, arenas, titan hunting, etc., they are biased and I called them on it, only to be black balled by the administrators in the arenas. Top guilds get changes made for them and all the other players are thrown to the way side, even if you donate. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME PLAYING THIS GAME LIKE I DID !!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Keep your kids away from this stuff because it can become an obsession. My son played World of Warcraft and practically flunked a grade and he's extremely smart. He shows signs of addiction. Extremely up when time to play, and aggitated, withdrawn and aggressive when he cannot. And he can play this stuff for 15 hours on end.

      The game is OK, fun occasionally, but mostly repetitive, but what really wrecks it is the so called support people.

      They are incredibly unsympathetic, even if you lost a lot of the game currency due to their bugs or lack of testing - and some people spend real money to get this currency.

      Yes, real money certainly helps buy success in this game, and don't dare challenge or annoy the top guild in this game or you might find half of your own guild gets banned for no apparent reason, sad but true.

      This game sucks. It sucks because they designed a pretty fun game and then said, "now let's make it suck so people will be forced to purchase FSP currency." Really simple things like inventory slots or access to a bank cost FSPs. After wandering around with only 3 slots in my backpack and losing all my gold because I can only deposit 25% of it every four hours, I am done with Fallen Sword. If I wanted to pay for an MMORG, I would play WOW.

      game is ok at the start but does get boring very quickly but the best advice is don't invest real money into this game many of my friends got their accounts terminated for no good reason, and i found out later if you read their user agreement they say they can terminate your account for any reason and will not owe you any explanation for doing so, so play this game at your own risk and again don't invest real money that way when you lose you account you don't lose everything you paid for.

      I have only recently join FS and have found it addicting. It is lo-tech graphics and somewhat text based but the whole game is strategy based. I joined on 20/Mar/2009 and am currently at level 190. There are over 3 million members who play this game so it must have SOMETHING going for it. There are current memebrs who at levels 700 . Yes, you may want to buy Fallen Sword Points (FSP) to advance/upgrade your character but I have found one of the best thinsgto do is join a good guild. There you can get advice on how to handle a level, use guild equipment/armor, and receive buffs to enhnace your playing skills. I recommend you give it a try to see if it is for you.

      cool game, but it only starts newbie's out with 3 backpack slots. you either have to pay cash for more, or wait till your deep into the game. Seems they would want newbies doing the quests and stuff .. so makes little sense to me why they restrict the backpack slots so baddly on new users. 6 should be enough not to discourage people from playing, and thus more likely to donate towards the game.

      There seems to be a lot of "This is good" or "This sucks". Personally, I think that if you don't have a valuable contribution to the discussion, don't say anything. Now I have been playing the game for about 8 months now, and yes, I would recommend it to anyone. However, if they don't enjoy it, that is fine, but you don't need to blast it all over the internet and maybe change the minds of people who actually wish to play and help expand the game.

      Love this game. My friend introduced me to it and I got totally addicted. It's fun and it eases a-lot of stress and anger. Which needs to happen now cause I do not talk to that friend anymore, lolz^^ Highland Castle Knights and The Dragon guilds are awesome. I've never really figured out how to get FSP from the surveys. Too much spam. Scared Hitless is also a very awesome guild and is part of the Top 250. The Legacy of Fallen Gods is a new guild. There's so many levels in the game, you can't help but have fun.

      I played fallensword for a total of 20 months and it was total blis to start off. LE events games and little things here and there to keep players excited. Level 500 now and in the top 250 player and donated over $5000 I turn around and had a good look at what I was doing in this game. The game is still the same but that's it nothing has really changed and it's getting lame. I liked it better when hoof (programer for HCS) was around and dealing with all the game content. Grim (wanna be programer for HCS) his high and might attitude towards everyone now that hoof is not around to keep him under toe.... This game is starting to suck. I am not the only player who feels like this either.

      Now I am thinking I might just go and have a BBQ and make the most out of them cows........................

      I'm more of a casual gamer, and I love the fact that I can jump in and jump out of fallen sword easily. There are some things I would change, but all and all it is a great game and I find myself playing more and more. Some people burn out in the level 8-15 range from what I hear, but if you stick with it the game gets more and more fun. I wouldn't buy to much stuff from the auctions, it is better to find it on the quest, unless you are into pvp then you want to max out your gear. Joining a guild is a good thing and will help you out with the game a lot. I was fortunate enough to join a pretty decent guild, which almost makes killing things at level 14 too easy. I'd give the game a try. If you are a hard core WoW or 3D gamer, you may not like fallen sword as much. But there is enough there to keep most of us entertained.

      I am on FS & I think it is an AWESOME GAME - it reminds me of the "Old School" games like Zork, D&D and the Original Ultima series - kinda puts an age to me.... Sneaky1 is my FS name, I am a lvl 160 in FS and have been playing since March 2008, i own the guild Majestic Kingdom. And Yes I BUY FSP to support the guild.

      Advising people to attack other players is bad advice. Anyone who has played the game for more than a few days will probably bounty you and/or get friends to come after you. Personally the first time someone attacks me they get at least a regular bounty, but if i'm cranky they get deleved by guildies. If they attack me again , a whole world of hurt comes down on them. Going around randomly ganking other players isn't a good idea.

      There are plenty of ways to enjoy the game without ruining it for others. There is a pvp arena if that's what you're into.

      FS is a good game it takes about 1 hour to finish playing plus u can get FSP from surveys and if u dont want junkmail just lie some of it works and some doesn't. Its simple to earn gold and u can get started by joining a guild and buying any sets possible and soon egough u can become a god in it.
