Welcome, traveler!

Wrestle honey badgers! Start forest fires! Save the world as a beekeeper! FARA is a text-based roguelike that runs in your browser and has over 50 classes, a never-ending supply of dungeons, and countless secrets. The goal of the game is to collect enough Key Fragments to complete the Astral Key. Fragments can be found in many places - the depths of dangerous dungeons, the bottoms of lakes, or even in the pockets of unwitting strangers.  Most notable actions in the game add to a score, and when you die, your score is added to a persistent total that unlocks new options the next time you play. FARA is in the alpha stage, and is buggy as hell. Feedback and bug reports are desired and encouraged!

Bug reports are particularly helpful at this stage, since there may or may not be a ton of issues, and they have the nasty tendency to stop the game dead in its tracks.

The desktop versions of FARA are updated monthly (with the exception of critical bug fixes), and the web version is updated a few times a week.


Use the [ Arrow Keys ] to move, press [ Tab ] to cycle through targets, [ E ] to interact, [ A ] to attack, and [ T ] to take things. There's way more to FARA, but that should be enough to get you killed started. Collect 10 Key Fragments to save the world! 

Latest Patch - 2018.11.16

- Added a few more starting recipes
- Reduced party size from 5 to 4. Commanders may have 5 member parties.
- Reduced the health of Mercenaries slightly
- Entities attempting to join your party when it is full will now get rejected instead of joining and booting the oldest member.
- Animals must now be in an ecstatic mood to join parties.
- Players can now tell their human allies to attack certain targets with '/say attack (name)'. Shouting will issue the command to everyone nearby.
- Cat Whisperers can no longer summon cats via self-inflicted injuries
- Key Fragment revivals now interrupt whatever action the revived entity was performing
- Changed the elemental item symbol from + to ::
- The + symbol is now one of several indicators of crafted item quality:
--- "-Name-" is poor, meaning any positive stat bonus the item normally provides is lessened, and it has half the durability of the standard version
--- "+Name+" is good, meaning the item has twice the durability of the standard version
--- "{Name}" is a Masterwork, meaning the item has three times the durability of the standard version, twice the stat bonuses, and hits twice as hard.
--- In light of these changes, the Blacksmith and Tailor classes have been altered. Their abilities now allow them to craft good quality items without knowing their recipes.
- Fixed some anomalies with moving stackable items between entities using /hold and /brandish. This also addresses a freeze caused by /removeall.
