Syrnia(Online since 2005)
Syrnia is a game that has been around for more than 15 years now. It's an old-style text-based RPG. In the game you focus on choosing and training your skills. There are soon to be 17 skills, including farming, mining, fishing, smithing, combat and more.
Like in other games, there are specific Holiday events and frequently sent moderation events to spice up the game and bring the community together.
The dev team is created of current players looking to keep the game updated and enjoyable for everyone for years to come.
The main premise of the game is that it's not turn or tick based. It's timer based so there is no commitments to stay watching the screen. Which makes it a great game to kill time wherever and whenever it fits your lifestyle.

I was linking the game so I invited my wife, then my son to play, next thing you know, my account got cancelled and the admins were straight out assholes about the situation, accusing me of cheating and giving me an attitude, as if i was not doing the a favor by playing their outdated game. Went over to Camadia which is a similar but way way better game with really nice admins and community.
I'm currently playing this game and debating whether to continue. The higher your level of experience in mining or fishing or whatever you are doing, the more you need to get to the next level. If you start mining tin and you log off and come back maybe 2 hours later you will see you only mined 10 tin. You MUST be logged on to continue any activity. My biggest complaint is you constantly need to put in a 4 digit captcha code to continue seeing the game screen. To me that is so stupid to keep doing that. For that main reason I will probably stop playing.
The game zucks! And all of this specially cause of the stuff members + some of their closer friends. A word for them all? Sure! Call them haters. All they know is to mute or ban you if they don't like you; depends on what night they had i suppose. Reasons? Well, they always find some to push the button. I do not recommend to lose time in this "friendly" community. Not worth it, really.
1 star. I played this game for years, until a moderator on a power trip froze my account because I had another account for my kid. I tried to reazon with him and the piece of shit mod gave me an attitude and so I sent them packing.
This is the risk when playing free games.
Been playing for around 8 years now - on and off but more on. If you like to have something in the background when you do stuff it's a perfect fit for you.
The moderator team is not horrible , just the folks who break the rules and then cry about being in trouble. You sign up to this wonderful little game and that means you agree to the rules. The mod team which i know a few personally are generally wonderful people. who while doing their jobs don't truly want to have to punish people. This game has content to have you leveling for years on and plenty of things to do. Yes it needs a new creator but as of late the mod team has been given new powers to be able to launch invasions and the last 4-6 months have been like a brand new game full of random events like combination chest to try and unlock for a prize or just get thieving exp, random even for prizes , invasions all over the game world , etc. Come join the game and i promise you will have fun if this is your type of game.
i wonder who u are in game as i used to be Jett Darknight
It is a little slow to begin with, but picks up relatively quickly... Just make sure to have something to do with when playing syrnia, as it does get old if you play it as a standalone
A great way to waste some time while at work or school. A word of warning however, it can become addicting.
I have a huge love for this game- no spells for minimum timer or anything of sorts, old style is what i think of it as and I love it... the skills are fun and the community(there are some that make it not fun), but for the most part the community is wonderful and what makes it syrnia, to me :)
It's a really good game. Unfortunately it has a bit of downtime, and it's been stated that it really doesn't receive updates anymore, which is true. However I can't see why that would deter someone new from joining. It's got plenty of content already in game. As it's been said there's players that have been playing for nearly a decade so obviously there's enough content there to keep them logging in. It's great for playing in the background while you play minecraft or whatever. If you do decide you want to play it's got a ton of active players still. Plenty of good clans to join, world chat is almost always active.
No level cap, no need to spend money on the game, works on pc and mobile. Just play it. Play it 16+ hours a day.
Fun game but destroyed by the worst moderators and game staff on the net. Repetitive game of waiting for numbers to countdown and chatting while this happens. Community is a mix or nice people, weird and the truly disturbed people. The really mentally disturbed players progress to being moderators, hence why the modding is so bad.
Game author has pretty much abandoned the game so no updates and changes are likely to happen.
As mentioned Syrnia is entering it's 10th year and has a great bunch of people.
The community can be very welcoming and there are also clans around to help new players move forward in the game. You can also remain clanless and make your own way through with a fun range of skills and generally happy chat.
There are also random skill events and invasions that offer bonus experience if you choose to participate.
Come say hi and see if the game is a good fit for you!
I've been playing Syrnia for a little over 7 years now and still find myself logging in almost every day. Love it, love the whole nostalgic feel only a text-based game can bring, no fancy graphics just a solid community(for the most part) and tons of things and quite a few skills to do and no level cap.
there are 15 skills to train from combat to resource gathering and processing skills, there are various islands to explore some safe some dangerous and some filled with rewards.
the game is entering its 10th year in march and has a loyal fan base of players from all time zones and ages, the game has a community always willing to help and assist when needed and we have fan made sites dedicated to information and guides to help new and old players alike.
You can change the colors and disable the pictures and lots of other stuff.
