The Black Spirit is your guide. Your destinies are entwined on your search for answers concerning the source of power: Black Stones. The Black Stones are said to have corrupted the minds of the ancients, and through their Alchemy causing the fall of their civilisation. They are commonly found in the desert between the capitalist Republic of Calpheon, and Valencia Kingdom, the land of absolute monarchy. Calpheonians call this area the Black Desert and have declared a war to claim the resources there. Valencians call it the Red Desert due to all of the blood spilled there. You will uncover the hidden secrets of the ancient civilization through the histories of Calpheon and Valencia. Lost memories and the secret of the Black Spirit will be unveiled. A journey to seek the true face of the ancient civilization around the Black Desert awaits you.

Black Desert doesn’t have what I’m looking for. It’s a far from a perfect game, but it’s serviceable in its own way. I can’t recall a single memorable quest or moment in the story, and almost nothing in the game is explained. The veterans, for the most part, are willing to help players figure things out. Having friends already in the game will also help. There is still a great deal to do to make it a fantastic MMO, but I love that you can without a doubt play this world your way.

Black Desert Online will attain greatness when it can provide good answers to those and other questions. Yet even now, it's hard not to heed it's call, which it sounds out the moment you enter its robust, genre-best character creator. I imagine that it will be even harder to tear myself away when player-versus-player siege wars are in full swing. Until then, there are plenty of fish to catch, plenty of demons to slay, plenty of meat pies to make, and plenty of coins to earn.

The sheer wealth of different kinds of activities on hand in Black Desert is staggering. There are no formal “instances” to speak of, instead BDO’s design is intended to have players live in a world – not just quest and follow the question marks. Points off only because some of the tasks required to truly experience all the game has to offer border on tedious rather than fun.
