Wow! This place is amazing!

I loved all the play on names for the mythological creatures. I loved the scenery. I think Achae and Illios are my favorite places cause I get to see so many variations of the creatures I grew up reading about (and still do ).

Most excellent job, KI!

I knew Aquila would be just like the Greek Mythology tales from reading about it on some fansites. I'm a HUGE Mythology fan and one of my favorite tales is The Oddessy (think I spelled it wrong ), so my first thought was, "Where's Troy?! I wanna go to Troy!!!"

This is SO visually stunning. I spent a Long time just getting beautiful screenshots for my desktop wallpaper before I even thought about starting one quest.

Hmmm...what did I thought about Aquila first? .......Oh yeah!

Three months ago
'' Oh, sweet pelican! (
I literally thought that ) It's beautiful- the color, the brightness, the eagles and ... Wait, it's just like ancient Greek! Does that mean I'll meet the gods of Olympus on the way!?....Well then, let's see what we got here.

When I first saw Aquila I literally dropped my mouth in amazement! It is so beautiful! After about a half an hour staring at the scenery I got into the story line, only to realize I will be docking the ships quite often in the skyways. My Mooshu galleon doesn't stand a chance against Aquilian ships!

Welcome to the message boards Princesa. You will find us very helpful and quite imaginative and fun.
Try sailing in a busy realm like Avery and join in and help with any ship fights you see. You will gain gold and nautical xp quickly that way and you will be able to get your Eagle ship in no time. Also several fan sites host Nautical xp parties all the time and you can really gain levels and gold VERY quickly that way. Have fun in the beautiful skies of Aquila.

"It's very sunny here, isn't it?" - See, I grew up somewhere dark and cold for most of the year, making me opposed to anything very bright. I didn't like Mooshu very much for that reason, though it was still quite stunning. While Aquila's terrain and area options are great, I find the need to turn my brightness down.

(I think the second was, "Okay, that Harpy is huge.")

My first thought was.... "THIS....IS....SPARTA!!!!" and then I proceeded to go to Sparta so I could actually be right. No, actually I thought is was a magnificently beautiful place and like so many others I love Greek and Roman history (I thought taking bits and pieces from both cultures was brilliant), any mythology as well. In first viewing it was truly a sight to behold.
