GLOSSARY


RAHO Game Terminology:

  • Rage Against Heaven Online (天に対して怒りレージ アゲンスチ ヘブン オンライン) or RAHO (ラホ) was a very popular MMOFPVRPG, the third of its kind that was developed and published by RAINSTORM-INC, a joint United States-South Korean Game Company, in Japan it was licensed by SHINOSOFT that localized the game for Japanese speaking audience. It was a part of Rage Against Heaven series, a popular console Motion Capture Action RPG. Even after many FPVRPG was released and RAHO was in its 6th year, routine expansion release and added features made this game still popular worldwide, especially in China and ASEAN region. Only had 1 server (how they manage it was company secret) where many player from all the world roam the 'All Creation', the game world. Player entered their action using specialized controller and voice-to-command. No Voice Chat available (although the NPCs and PCs had voice data), all conversation between player was performed with text (the official reason was 'limited bandwidth'). As the player wear HUD, typing the chat was performed using voice-to-text input (integrated in HUD) although regular keyboard can also be used (if the player can type without looking).
  • DSL (神聖の破片度) Divine Shards Level : RAHO didn't use the classic Level definition that was used in retro RPGs. DSL represent player 'Divinity Power' that was capped at 128 (as per 6th Expansion). DSL level influenced how many 'Job' the player can possess and its 'Tier', also the degree of 'Character Tier', and the player status. DSL was obtained by defeating certain 'Instance Boss' with the in-game-story of absorbing the False Gods' Divinity Power.
  • Character Tier (化身階層) : Represent Character evolution from a Mortal Hero into Full Divine God. All Character started as Tier 0 Character (DSL 0/128) that represent a normal human being. After getting their first Divine Shard they will reincarnated into a new being, if the character keep collecting DSL then his/her character will evolve into a higher tier. A high tier character had significantly higher status than lower tier character. The tier was : Tier 1 (DSL 1-16) - Legendary Hero (伝説的英雄), Tier 2 (DSL 17-32) - Mythical Hero (神話的英雄), Tier 3 (DSL 32-64) - DemiGod (半神) , Tier 4 (DSL 65-96) - Lesser God (神の種), Tier 5 (DSL 97-127) Fledgling God (若神) and Perfect (DSL 128) - True God (真の神).
  • Job () and Job Tier (職階層) : RAHO had about 108 'Job' that was divided into 'General Job' that was available to every user, 'Race Job' that was only available to a certain race, 'Derived Job' that was available if he character had the prerequisite Job at certain tier. There was 4 tier: Beginner, Intermediate, Advance and Master. Each tier had 10 level each, the job level raise by spending 'Souls' to buy a skill, but to raise the Job tier character must be at a certain Character tier. Although RAHO encourage its user to held many job, most people only invest their time for a certain Job ('Main Job'), while the other job was for support the main job. For example a user with Knight main job and Priest said job could tank and heal at the same time. But because there are stat correction effect, the melee user only choose job that was considered as 'Melee Class' to raise their physical stat, while avoiding taking 'Magic Class' that would decrease their physical job. In reality, most user was a 'Physical-Magical' class hybrid. In the story, Stellahymne's job was full 'Magic Class' with no 'Melee Class', while Haimona's job was full 'Melee Class' without 'Magic Class'. The other character had both class in different proportion.
  • Skill : By expending 'Souls' that was dropped from monster, a character can buy skill from his job. A Job usually contain 30s skills that usually divided into Attack, Defend, and Support, although some job didn't always follow this scheme, and some skill can only obtained if the user had a certain skill proficiency or job tier. Because a Job was limited to 10 per tier, a character only can had 10 skills per job tier. Also because the cost to buy the skill will exponentially raised for every skill the character had, most user didn't buy skill they didn't use even if they can. The skill set that the character choose will change the character Job moniker, the so called 'Built'. For example Iusticia job 'Slayer', because she choose skills that mainly used for hunting a certain monster class effectively like: DragonBane, Sky Divider, GiantBane, Shell Slicer, etc (mainly for Dragon and LargeMonster class), her Job built was changed into 'Genocider'. Even after 6th year, new built was still discovered by the user.
  • Proficiency : A game concept of how well the user performed a skill or weapon. The proficiency raised when the player use the skill in a meaningful way. The proficiency level cap was depend on player race, job and character tier. For example a tier 3 Alfar character with Tier 2 Summoner as her main job and no melee class only had maximum Sword profiency of 75 (Race: 75 (3*25). Job: 0 (0*2)). While a tier 1 Theria character with Tier 1 Swordsman as her main job and Tier 1 Warrior as her side job and SwordMastery passive skill can had maximum sword profiency of (Race: 50*1 + Swordsman: 100*1 + Warrior: 75*1 + PassiveSkill 100*1 = 325). The maximum value of proficiency is 1000, proficiency bonus over this limit is ignored, so player usually planned ahead what jobs they want choose.
  • Heaven Lord (天主)  : How RAHO called its User. The in-game explanation because the Player was destined to join the Heaven's Hierarchy. The NPC in quest also use this term to refer the player.
