The website above shows detailed game info.

This game is a FAST PACED rpg.
Use macros well!
(Go to Option/Preferences, Macros tab:
Push a key you wish to be a hotkey,
type the verb (such as firebolt),
now push that key as a hotkey in the game!)

Four classes: Warrior, Monk, Mage, or Wizard.
Hundreds of weapons and armors.
Four cities and dozens of areas with monsters.
15+ unique spells.
40+ hours of gameplay.

I am putting putting up the File for Download now so that you can run your own game and host.

If you would like to host for this game, just get people to join your game and host for them.

I do not pwipe.

Leveling your characters will level only your characters on that server. There may be multiple servers. Keep in mind that your players will not be updated on all the servers as you level on a certain server.

Thanks to everyone who has played and hosted Rise of Heroes in my absense. Recently I have gotten a new job, and as such, will not have much time to dedicate to freeware games for the time being. I may return in the distant future to produce more games, but as for now, I am not working on RoH, RoH2, RoH for Java, or RoH 3D. I may go back to RoH 3D in the future.

The newest version (7) contains both the added area Pandemonium, and a new unique shield, ExPeriEncE. ExPeriEncE can only be found in Pandemonium. The Mmbahfather can also be found in Pandemonium.

I've been too busy with work and real life to deal with Rise of Heroes right now. The game is what it is. I'm done dealing with it. Enjoy!

Rise of Heroes is open source now.
Here are the source files:

Any one still hanging around waiting for this game to go back up?

I've been watching from the shadows and waiting for another good server to come up.

Also, any one feel like picking up this project and fixing the messy code on the classic version?

Three things, probably easy fixes are:

1.) put in a bank 2.) make potions stack 3.) a simple t5 to reach for high ups to bum around at

I have a bunch of icons enemies and new equips/rares, even some nice maps to plug in if any one is interested in a little project just add me and page me!!!

I don't know why, but I'm a bit laggy on the server that's up right now.
