Brotherhood System previewed for Legend of Martial Arts
Legend of Martial Arts – Perfect World Entertainment’s redesign of Kung Foo! – has now previewed its Brotherhood system in advance of the open beta on December 15th.
The Brotherhood is a small guild-like system in which six total players may join together in a pact. They may be created by a character above level 60, and each player can have their own unique title.
A key aspect of the Brotherhood is its Vengeance system. If a member of a Brotherhood is killed by another player, the enemy player will show up on the Brotherhood’s Enemy List. The Brotherhood can then teleport to their fallen comrade, and get vengeance or track down and kill the enemy later. Doing so earns them Brotherhood Points, used to buy special skills for the group.
Perfect World Entertainment also publishes Perfect World International, Jade Dynasty, Battle of the Immortals, and Forsaken World.

One of Legend of Martial Arts’ most unique features is its all-new Brotherhood System. A Brotherhood is basically a small, close-knit group of characters that works together to attain powerful rewards. Any character level 60+ can create and name a Brotherhood, and then invite up to five of his or her friends to it. Each member can then assign himself a title to fully personalize the system.
One of the main parts of the Brotherhood system is the Vengeance PVP aspect. Basically, if any member of your brotherhood is slain by another player, that PK’er instantly goes onto your brotherhood’s “Enemy List”, and you’re given the opportunity to instantly teleport to his corpse, where you can take vengeance right then and there. If, for some reason, you’re unable to do this, though, you’ll have to do it the old fashioned way– tracking him down. This is where the hunt begins.
Enemy players are tracked on the Enemy list, and their current connection and realm statuses are visible to all members of your brotherhood. If you manage to find your enemy and destroy him, your brotherhood then gains “Brotherhood Points” which can be used to buy special powerful skills for all members of the group. Through this and other daily tasks, your brotherhood, if loyal and cohesive, will be able to reach any number of goals to increase the power of each of its individual members.
For our Closed Beta testers who want to try this system out right away, please head to the NPC named “Avatar” in Old Capital, Golden Dragon City. He’ll get you set up with your Brotherhood application.
See you in-game, and don’t forget, Open Beta starts December 15th!
