The various regions of ''[=MapleStory=]'' have differing backgrounds and plots. In order to really notice this information, the player has to finish certain quests and then connect the dots while looking through their completed quests log. These quests can be fairly boring since most of them are [[FetchQuest fetch quests]] requiring you to collect TwentyBearAsses. However some quests are worthwhile and have good rewards, but you [[GuideDangIt won't know this until you look at your 'In Progress' quest log AFTER accepting a quest (which most of the time shows the reward) or reading a quest guide on the internet beforehand.]] Interestingly, a few quests actually have some unexpected plot twists in them, [[PlayTheGameSkipTheStory but these tend to be ignored since the player is just clicking "Next" and not reading the text.]]

Later ''[=MapleStory=]'' expansions[[note]]As early as the release of the fifth Adventurer class, the Pirate, with many quests in the Nautilus referring to the Black Mage[[/note]] reveal that an entity called the [[BigBad Black Mage]], his [[TheDragon Commanders]], as well as an affiliated organization called the Black Wings, are responsible for the activities of some of the major bosses, as well as the chaos happening within the regions where these bosses reside.

There are currently five[[spoiler:six if you count the Sengoku from Global/Japanese servers]] main character factions: the Explorers, the Knights of Cygnus, the Heroes, the Resistance, and the Nova Race. All of them have been affected by the Black Mage in some way, with some factions having more[[note]]the Legends and the Resistance[[/note]] and some less[[note]]Adventurers[[/note]] to do with him. These factions are not to be confused with the five job classes in Maplestory that players can choose, which are warrior, magician, thief, archer, and pirate. Think of the factions more as organizations, each of which comprises members of a variety of job classes.

''[=MapleStory=]'' is a [[AllegedlyFreeGame free-to-play]] [[SideView side-scrolling 2D]]{{MMORPG}} from {{UsefulNotes/South Korea}} that is both loved and hated for its unique graphics reminiscent of 16-bit games. Oh, and there's also an [[Anime/MapleStory anime version]], which has a plot with nothing in common. Like most [=MMORPGs=], ''[=MapleStory=]'' is crawling with all sorts of people, including (but not limited to) kids, tweens, teens, adults, noobs, hackers, [[StopHavingFunGuys people who take it too seriously]], and normal people who want to have fun.

** The five heroes are said to have two mages and no pirate because Pirates didn't exist back then. The introduction of Shade as the sixth Pirate Hero is hand waved with the character having suffered a case of {{Retgone}}, but that doesn't really address the notion that there weren't pirates at all.

* MythologyGag: Whenever a storyline is completely replaced with a new one, the old storyline is generally still referenced as events having happened in the past. For example, the revampped Cygnus Knight questline features a re-enactment of the Master of Disguise attack from the original questline as a training exercise.
