Major Grom: Plague Doctor is an online web-based role playing video game, developed in cooperation with itch-worthy creator, Roman Yampolsky. The game was created in response to the popular online browser-based role-playing video game, Mafia Wars, and the hugely popular World of Warcraft MMORPG. In essence, Major Grom: Plague Doctor, as it's more commonly known, is an expansion pack for the highly popular World of Warcraft: Age of Conan MMORPG.
For those unfamiliar with the comic, here's a quick recap: In the world of Age of Conan (also known as Age of Mythology), Grom (Gnarled King) is the Lord of Swords. However, he's also a master of necrology, as well as energy generation. Because of this, many consider him the "God of Necromancy". If his powers weren't bad enough, he's also a highly skilled doctor. His ability to heal has allowed him to be a prominent member of the city-state's City Watch.
So what's so special about this game? In short, it's all about Necromancy. The game is set in the very early days of the universe, before man has even mastered magic. As a result, Necromancers - or Groms as they're known in the game - rule the day. If you like your role playing experience enhanced with Necromancy, then this might be a good role playing game for you.
Now, how do you play Major Grom? Like most World of Warcraft gamers, you start by choosing a class. This will influence your overall strategy, which in turn determines how you'll level up. Each class has its own preferred method of leveling up, so you should explore them all before choosing. The healer and the warrior are two popular choices.
Then you get to choose your race. Your race is not only another determinant of your overall skill level, but it also helps determine the sort of rewards you'll receive for your time. You'll receive more gold and experience after first speaking with an Innkeeper, as well as more skills and spells at a lower cost. The Dwarf is the best choice for a mage; the Night Elf for a ranger, the High Elf for a thief, and the Draenei for a paladin.
Finally, you'll be assigned a character. You can start as an apprentice who starts out learning the ropes, working his way up to becoming a Highlord. Or you can follow the story in any direction you want, making the game's events affect your future. The choice is yours.
