  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

File:Allods 9119.gif

Allods Online is an MMORPG whose story is based on a much older series of games, Rage Of Mages and Evil Islands. Like those games, Allods Online takes place on a series of islands known as "Allods", surrounded by a sea of volatile and demonic energy known as "The Astral". The game allows players to play as a member of either the League or Empire, doing quests to aid their faction while trying to destroy the other.

The game features six races: Humans, Elves, and Gibberlings for the League; Humans, Orcs, and Arisen for the Empire. It also features nine classes: Warriors, Paladins, Scouts, Wardens, Healers, Mages, Summoners, Psionicists and recently added Bards.

The game was originally released in Russia, but was given a US and European release. Needs More Love and a better description.

Tropes used in Allods Online include:
  • Allegedly Free Game: The game not-so-subtley urges you to invest some real money. Without cash shop items, the difficulty of the game at higher levels is vastly increased.
    • The game is actually really fun if you pretend its a p2p game with unlimited trial.
  • An Adventurer Is You: it's a MMORPG, so it naturally has a character class system. The standard classes have varying names depending on the race, for example the Elven paladin is a Paladin, the Imperial paladin is a Comissar, and the Orc paladin is an Enforcer.
    • The Tank: Warriors and Paladins
    • The Healer: Healers and Summoners
    • The Nuker: Mages
    • Pet Master: Summoners and Wardens
    • DPS Class: Scouts
    • The Jack of All Trades: Bards
  • A Tankard of Moose Urine: the AFK animation for a female Orc character is sipping from a bottle labeled "9", a reference to a brand of cheap Russian beer "Baltika 9".
    • It also has the wine counterpart to that trope: the "Three Axes Port", which is a reference to the Soviet/Russian 777 brand of bum wine.
  • The Beast Master: Wardens, who are nature-aligned characters who always has their pet following behind. Summoners might also count, as they can only have a single pet out at a time, but has a bit more variety.
  • Bizarre Sexual Dimorphism: Male orcs are hulking brutes with tusks. Female orcs are muscular gray-skinned women with Cute Little Fangs.
  • Blood Magic: Summoners use Blood Magic to heal their allies.
  • Bribing Your Way to Victory: The game sometimes gets accused of this, particularly after certain changes to the game after a certain patch.
  • Church Militant: Paladins.
  • City Noir: Nezebgrad. It looks like Moscow in Soviet times, only with street gangs, ethnic violence and a Serial Killer mini raid boss.
  • Combat Medic: Healers are exactly what their name implies, but they can also pick up a few powerful melee and magic attacks.
    • For this reason they're a force to be reckoned with in PVP, where they strut around in the heaviest armor and using the deadliest of melee weapons like a pure fighter class, only with tons of magic and self-healing to boot.
    • This is also one of the few games where the healers do NOT start with a healing ability.
  • Crystal Dragon Jesus: Tenses.
    • Crystal Dragon Lenin: Nezeb.
  • Fantasy Counterpart Culture: The (human) Empire is based on the Soviet Union: the main city named after one of the leaders Nezebgrad, a snow covered area called Siveria; the Arisen culture resembles Ancient Egypt (e.g., mummification), etc. The League is based on Ancient Rus and Imperial Russia. The Elves resembles the French somewhat.
  • Floating Continent: The entire game world.
  • Fragile Speedster: Scouts wear this hat, focusing on archery and rogue-style combat emphasizing stealth and speed.
  • Gainaxing
  • Good Republic, Evil Empire: The League is democratic and generally seen as the good guys. The Empire, however, isn't always painted as evil, so this can be seen as a case of White and Gray Morality.
  • Groundhog Day Loop: There is a place on Kirah where one day before famous battle repeats itself endlessly.
  • Just the First Citizen: the Imperial leader and archmage Yasker notably doesn't style himself "Emperor".
  • Knight Templar: The Xadaganians somewhat appears to be like this.
  • Lower Class Lout: a stereotypical Orc.
  • Magic Knight: Many classes combine magic and melee in this manner, particularly Wardens and Paladins.
  • Magitek: Lots of it. The setting borders on Dungeon Punk, but doesn't take itself quite seriously enough for that.
    • Also the Arisen are the entire race of magical cyborgs.
  • Mighty Glacier: Warriors tend to hit hard and are fairly difficult to kill themselves, being one of the two possible "tank" classes.
    • The other example is the Paladin, who tends to focus more on one-on-one combat than the Warrior, but makes up for it with intense survivability, and that's before their healing abilities.
  • Mind Rape: The modus operandi of the Psionicist.
  • Monochromatic Eyes: Most elves.
  • Not So Different: Quests concerning League-Empire War bluntly show that both sides have virtually the same goals and are keen to use identical methods to achieve them.
  • Our Elves Are Better: They look more like over-grown fairies than anything else, with their wings. The game also loves playing with how vain and concerned with their looks they are.
  • Our Orcs Are Different: Mostly Warcraft style, though a bit darker. While working for The Empire, their main goal is fairly sympathetic.
  • Our Zombies Are Different: Arisen are undead, but also cyborgs. They have mechanical limbs and a love for science and magic.
  • The Political Officer: the Empire has them in place of priests and paladins. The Imperial paladin is called "Commissar", and the Imperial healer "Political Officer".
  • Patron Saint: every character has a patron Martyr and can pray to them for healing and buffs. The Martyrs grant more powerful abilities as the characters level up. In addition, during a festival in honor of a particular Martyr, a character with this Martyr as patron can spend "Jubilee Coins" to get gifts.
  • Psychic Nosebleed: An implicit, non-psychic variation. In the Empire tutorial, a Kanian Cleric has created a barrier preventing you from moving forward. He's currently locked in a struggle with two Xadaganian scientists. When you tip the scale and destroy the barrier, the Cleric dies as a result.
  • Psychic Powers: Psionicists specialize in this.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Gibberlings, who always appear in threes. Yes, even when you play them.
  • Squishy Wizard: Mages. Summoners can qualify too. Strangely, this does not applies to healers at higher level.
  • Shattered World
  • Shout-Out: many. If you are not well-versed in Soviet/Russian culture and history you'll miss a lot of them though.
  • Stone Wall: Paladins, one of the tank classes that even has a special mechanic that lets one further mitigate damage. Warriors can also be this.
  • Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: With gibberlings, it's just about all hairstyle.
  • Wings Do Nothing: Played with, the Elves never run on their feet, but strangely the wings do not let them hover over water.
    • Prop wings are also a popular fashion accessory in the game. Of course they do nothing.
