Salem is a open-world, sandbox MMO with deep crafting elements. The game features permadeath as one of its main ingredients, along with an in-depth character developmentand a system without set roles, where the player can chose which kind of game to play. Taking place in colonial New England, Salem lets you live as an explorer in the New World; building your settlement, learning new skills, and maybe possibly defending your land from those who would reap what you've sowed.  



There is no truly safe area of Salem, but the safest may be the main city of Providence.  There,  you can meet other players, trade, chat, and enjoy the social aspects of the game. Outside of Providence, only wilderness awaits, and the further you go from civilization, the darker and more dangerous the world around you becomes. Eventually the deer and rabbits will give way to mythical beasts of lore, like argopelters, squonks and worse - witches!



Salem is a game that rewards the grind.  Every experience holds a lesson.  Although death may be the end of your character, it does not spell the end of the game, for you can inherit and start again, hopefully more prepared than last time and more readily able to tackle a world set against you.  Be careful in the Lumberwoods, pilgim!
