Silkroad is a 3D fantasy MMORPG published by Aeria Games. The game is set in the magical-fantasy world of Saphael, which has been ripped by war and left to rebuild. You play as a young hero descended from the old "Sprite Messengers" who once sought to bring balance and peace via connection to the old ways. You are tasked with fighting a new evil as well as maintaining that connection via your own customizable sprites, which act as the game's pets. You can find many new pets during your adventure, each with its own class, level, and attributes. These sprites accompany you and can even gather materials and craft weapons and armor for you.
