Gameplay is set in an open world and is somewhat slower paced than other MMOs. You move your figurine around the world board to get on top of a mob or resource node (crafting) peg, so you can enter the associated “encounter”, i.e. single room dungeon, grid encounter or resource grid to reap the spoils. Encounters / mobs are represented by their own pegs. Hovering your mouse cursor over a mob peg shows its “con” via the popular MMO con color set.
