- Summon characters
Einherjar owns an interesting feature, like in real life. That is the aging process of characters. When time passes by, all in-game characters will age and die eventually. Their basic indexes will be high when they are at young age and become weaker as they get older. It is this aspect that makes the game more challenging because players must think wisely to use their characters for a long progress of playing.
- Cold Sleep
Einherjar sets a certain limit to the amount of active characters allowed according to players’ level. They cannot summon more characters if the limit is exceeded, unless one or more of their characters die on the battlefield. However, the game also provides a convenient function called “cold sleep” to help players overcome that problem. That means moving a character into an ice coffin to freeze that character. As for the characters in “cold sleep” state, their age will stay the same although the time keeps on passing. And players will be free to have more characters to strengthen their armies.
- Marriage & Birth
Another lifelike aspect of Einherjar is the ability of letting characters marry and give birth. And of course these characters must be over 15 (the legitimate age in this game) to get married. Just as in real life, isn’t it? And speaking of birth, there is certainly the heredity. Sometimes an advanced skill of parents will be passed to their children. This feature makes the game more exciting and amazing.
