Contrary to most Fantasy plays, whose Fantasy from the western culture and Mythology was developed, Kal on-line one offers to the players a new Style of Fantasy. Both the scenes of the Kal world and the history, which are obtained by the Quests, show a never dagewesene world: the eastern Fantasy.
The history of Kal on-line ones is based on an eastern mythology over the 74. War between the king hectar-Nin and its adversary Ban Go, which provoked the king with its Daemonenscharen (demons). As model for the eastern Fantasy Kal on-line one represents the eastern culture area. The play scenario is however pure fiction. If scenes or persons from the material world are to be seen, is this pure coincidence.
The sky and the country were created by Hanin and the nation Hwan was established in the east. Before 3,300 years were the nation of Hwan of the masters of the world and the king of Hwan Guhbalkhan developed the country Narahea, which extends over 12.000 miles of the north to the south and 5,000 miles from the east to the west.
The 14th King HANIN, which prevails over the sky.
As the 14. King Hanin the throne enters, the sky is again created. Since the nation their power is enough for duerren and civil wars under the rule GuhBalHans by lost, they were attacked permanently by enemies, particularly of the Tow and the Hwasan. They broke the peace agreement and attacked Nareha. The king Hanin was naturally very enraged about these attacks and released for his part his troops. The troops of Hanin attacked the army Hwasans and took in the battle of the same name hire-sang in. After this battle only the army remained of Tow. This army, although twice as largely as from Hanin, withdrew itself finally, since it did not arrive against ingenious tactics Hanins.
After end of the civil war Naraeha developed itself further very rapidly. They produced new steel weapons for the stabilization of national power and created more mobility by the building of tunnels and roads.
The Client and playing on the server are free. There is a Item Shop, into which one can add oneself Items special for material money, these are however necessarily for playing not compellingly. Over this Shop also the play finances itself. Straight one in higher Levels is to be able to further-play it however hardly possible without Items from this Item Shop meaningfully. It exists to acquire however the possibility this in the play from other players to or from other players over the KAL Shop than poison (gift) dispatches itself permits.
