Server HighlightsPayon Stories is committed to bringing you a Ragnarok experience unlike any other. Our staff has reviewed each aspect of the game to optimize balance and entertainment, while staying true to Ragnarok Online’s origins.
Low Rate Experience
While our server is technically a 1x/1x/1x rate server, each mob has been carefully tuned to provide natural leveling progression. We have refined the entire monster database to give players new opportunities to level in places otherwise ignored. Experience not just 10% of Ragnarok Online, but 100% of what it has to offer.
Return to RO’s Roots
Even though Ragnarok Online is nearly 20 years old, we feel that the earliest incarnation of the game is the most nostalgic. Starting from Episode 3, we plan to slowly progress through the history of Ragnarok Online while adding unique content (quests, new systems, general improvements) as the server grows, bringing you a modern, yet nostalgic experience.
Fun, Not Profit
Payon Stories is a timeless server, one that is fully funded to cover basic upkeep and additions to content. There is no donation system in place at this time and if one is ever added, it will be limited, with all proceeds going to major improvements or directed to charities or the player base. We are here to have fun, not turn a profit.
The staff includes not only lovers of Ragnarok Online, but also people who are deeply familiar with the inner working of the game’s code. Additionally, collaboration with the community’s best programmers, developers, and artists means that content and experiences built on Payon Stories will be unique to Payon Stories.
Emphasis on Your Journey
The team at Payon Stories is devoted to creating a multi-faceted journey for your characters. Grinding on the same monsters day after day is an outdated MMO trope. In Payon Stories, you will be faced with multiple means of leveling: quests, events, and interactions with the world of Ragnarok Online. Our goal is to create one of the largest repositories of high-quality quests to provide you with not a grind, but a journey.
Payon Stories is more than a name, it is a pledge to our players and community. Our server is not just a copy of base code, but a reworking of the game. We will continually improve the experience of Ragnarok Online by adding components that improve the entertainment of the game, while maintaining the core essence of the game.
