Silkroad Online is an MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online RPG) that puts the player deep into ancient Chinese, Islamic, and European civilizations. The Silk Road, was in short, a major cultural and economic trading gateway. Roads connected between ancient Asia and Europe that have disappeared into the forgotten history of glory and adventure.The Triangular Conflict system, known as trade runs in-game, is one of the most popular features of Silkroad Online. It separates players into three distinct groups based on the historical battleground of the ancient Silk Road: Merchants, Hunters, and Thieves. Merchants purchase valuable goods and try to sell them for a profit by traveling to sell their wares in a different town. While they are en route to their destination, Thieves try to ambush the convoy and steal the goods, selling them for their own profit on the black-market. Hunters, the third side of the triangle, are guardians that are hired to protect the Merchants. They share the profits of the trading run if they safely escort the convoy to the final destination. Triangular Conflict provides some of the most intense battles in Silkroad Online, and it is one of the fastest and most lucrative ways to make money in-game.
