The Bible Online <The Bible Online: Ch1. The Heroes> is based on the first book of the Bible, Genesis. Players can meet and play the real heroes of Genesis, Abraham and his descendants. The game is designed for users to actually experience the Book of Genesis by fulfilling quests of Abraham, which is based on the true stories of the Genesis. As a MMORTS, players are to lead their tribe, build buildings, maintain resources and engage in warfare with other tribes. However, players do not stay in one place, but will go on a quest to go to the Promised Land. Players will lead Abraham’s tribe from Ur to Haran and finally to Canaan. <The Bible Online: Ch.1 The Heroes> also offers additional elements of RPG. When Abraham dies, Isaac becomes the tribe leader and after Isaac dies, Jacob leads the tribe. There are also quests for users to experience Genesis according to the history of the Bible. For example, as it is written in Genesis 14:13~14, there is a quest for Abraham to lead 318 men to rescue his nephew Lot.
In the beginning God created the world and made men with his breath of life. Men lived in paradise, the Eden, and did not know suffering nor death.
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day. …the LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being. Now the LORD God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden; and there he put the man he had formed. And the LORD God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. (Genesis 1:1, 1:31, 2:7-9)
God gave men one command. They should not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Otherwise they would die. The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it. And the LORD God commanded the man, "You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die." (Genesis 2:15-17)
However, the mankind fall into serpent’s temptation and sinned. Since the first man Adam sinned, now sin flows in the blood of the mankind. God cursed the mankind to work hard in this world to survive… but with the fate to die and go back to the earth. To the woman he said, “I will greatly increase your pains in childbearing; with pain you will give birth to children. Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you.” To Adam he said, "Because you listened to your wife and ate from the tree about which I commanded you, 'You must not eat of it,' "Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat of it all the days of your life. It will produce thorns and thistles for you, and you will eat the plants of the field. By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return.” (Genesis 3: 16-19)
Several thousand years passed by and the cursed mankind forgot God. However, God did not forget them and planed for their ultimate salvation. On an ordinary day some 4000 years ago, God chose an old man Abraham (Abram) and begins His great history of the world salvation… The LORD had said to Abram, "Leave your country, your people and your father's household and go to the land I will show you. I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you." (Genesis 12: 1 -3)
The tribe leader Abraham is a hero of mankind, who followed God’s calling to the Promised Land. Through playing <The Bible Online. Ch 1. The Heroes>, you will meet the Hero, Abraham, and see the hope of God for the salvation of mankind.
