-->-- '''Garavin''', in the opening quest

''[=WarpForce=]'' is the fifth Creator/ArtixEntertainment game and, like the others, is [[WebGames browser-based]]. The game is an expansion of sorts to the original ''VideoGame/{{AdventureQuest}}'', and as such takes place during ''VideoGame/{{AdventureQuest}}'' and uses the same gameplay as it, except [[RecycledInSpace in out-of-space]] following the [=WarpForce=] group. On [[http://forums2.battleon.com/f/tm.asp?m=19370410 July 27, 2011]] it was announced that new content would be released on a bimonthly schedule[[note]]having been moved from it's original monthly schedule to lessen the workload on the creators[[/note]], with each release usually containing at least one quest. The game is mostly free-to-play, but gains income from a one-time upgrade called [=WarpGuardianship=] which unlocks [[AllegedlyFreeGame extra quests]] and [[BribingYourWayToVictory items]], as well as offering Z-Tokens which can also be used to get exclusive items.

The [=WarpForce=] is LaResistance from the planet Lore, a fantasty land filled with magic and dragons, focused on fighting the Network who are an evil group of (mostly) aliens who go around [[CrapsackWorld enslaving and killing]] many aliens and people. However, magic is not as widespread in space as it is in Lore, and the [=WarpForce=] must use more tech-oriented gear. TheHero goes aboard the LSS (Lore [=SpaceShip=]) Alteon, and then goes around sticking it to the Network, resolving environmental problems, and arresting wrongdoers, which were completely unrelated to the Network.

The player can choose to be one of three races: human, elf, and [[OurDragonsAreDifferent drakel]]. The game, as said above, uses the same gameplay as ''VideoGame/{{AdventureQuest}}'', except with "Gauntlets" instead of shields, "Tech" instead of spells, and "Battlesuits" instead of armors. Each battlesuit has a few extra skills installed, making it similar to a [[CharacterClassSystem mini-class]], though some weapons also have special attacks. The game is fond of [[ShoutOut Shout-Outs]] to other works, so much so that it now has [[ShoutOut/WarpForce its own page]].

!!This game provides examples of:
* AllegedlyFreeGame: In order to access some of the quests, you must be a [=WarpGuardian=] which costs a one-time fee of $19.95. Or $9.95 if you're upgraded in any of the other Creator/ArtixEntertainment games.
* AntiPoopSocking: The game has daily caps on how much experience and gold you can get.
* BareYourMidriff: [[http://img6.imageshack.us/img6/8917/erith.png Erith Kesai]].
* BountyHunter: Erith Kesai, Rhapsus and [[StarWars Arty Dedeux]].
* BreathWeapon: Gristlespine, Zorbak's [[{{Dracolich}} undead dragon]], which shoots darkness out of its mouth.
* BribingYourWayToVictory: Being a [=WarpGuardian=] or buying Z-Tokens allows you buy the best equipment. You can also level higher if you are a [=WarpGuardian=].
* CamelCase: The game's name is ''[=WarpForce=]'', no space.
* ChestBurster: [[ShoutOut In reference to]] ''Film/{{Alien}}'', a thing with a tail latches onto Sgt. Lucky's face and apparently put eggs down his face which will hatch and burst of his chest, killing him. [[spoiler:It turns out he just has gas.]]
* TheChewToy: [[IronicNickname Sgt. Lucky]], who has fallen through thin ice and into a lake when going to prep the ship's engines, getting caught up in vines when parachuting into a jungle, getting randomly hit by an enemy's laser after the player and him defeat some Nechron scoutships, and having his ship blown up by Defilers.
* {{Crossover}}: The Shearhide War, with ''VideoGame/{{AdventureQuest}}''.
* DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist: You don't lose any equipments or penalties, you just get kicked out of the current quest you're in.
* {{Dracolich}}: Gristlespine, an undead dragon created by Zorbak.
* ExperienceMeter: It's a yellow bar with the number of experience points you've gained this level in the center. If you click on it, it'll show you how many experience points you need to get to the next level.
* {{Expy}}: Robotic 'Zorboz' looks similar to Zorbak- especially since Zorbak created him ''in own his image''. He also looks similar to one ''VideoGame/MechQuest'' character [[spoiler: TWILLIE]], except more complex.
* ForcedTutorial: At the start of the game Zorbak comes and tells you how the battle system works. He then brings and then reveals his "friend", an [[{{Dracolich}} undead dragon]] who attacks you.
* GameOverMan: DEATH 2.0, a robot version of TheGrimReaper, appears when you die. Fortunately, DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist (for you) and he sends your soul back, just so he could "continue to marvel at your antics!". It also includes [[spoiler: a shop where you can buy Darkness weapons]]
* GoshDangItToHeck: The ''Series/{{Star Trek|The Original Series}}'' "Dammit, Jim, I'm a doctor, not a..." [[MemeticMutation meme]] is referenced through the Sick Bay's LoadingScreen as "Darn it, I'm a doctor, not a magical creature with huge ears!"
* HappinessInSlavery: Some dwarves kidnapped and taken into slavery in the "Series/RedDwarf" quest are loyal to Lord Terror, their captor. However, not all of them feel this way, as evidenced by an SOS sent to the [=WarpForce=].
* HelloInsertNameHere: You may choose your character's name, but everything else?
* HeroicSacrifice: Lt. Amada, son of Admiral Amada, puts his fighter pilot between an asteroid and Lore in order to stop it from hitting the planet, killing himself in the process.
* HookHand: Captain Frolgar, also from ''VideoGame/{{AdventureQuest}}'', has this as part of his traditional pirate outfit.
* HunterOfMonsters: The [=DarkSeekers=] were this, defending people from werewolves, vampires and undead, before their numbers eventually dwindled to one leaving only [=DarkSeeker=] Z left.
* InSeriesNickname: Sergeant "Lucky" Gibbs, nicknamed so for his [[IronicNickname bad luck]].
* IronicNickname: Sgt. Lucky [[TheChewToy frequently ends up in horrible dangerous situations]].
-->'''Player:''' I hope you realize by now that even though his nickname is "Lucky," that he got that name because he actually ISN'T very lucky. In fact, he's downright UNLUCKY.\\
'''Admiral Amada:''' Well, ahem... I figure he'll live up to his name someday. Besides, at least he's survived everything. Now THAT takes luck.
* LevelGrinding: The game's story takes a very ''long'' time to progress once you hit level 30+.
* LifeMeter: Like the ExperienceMeter above (except without the ability to click on it), only red.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfSidequests
* ManaMeter: Or rather, [[ManaMeter Energy Meter]], which is used up when using technology. Just like the LifeMeter above, only blue instead of red. There is also the green SP bar, which is used for certain skills and running away in battle.
* {{Necromancer}}:
** Zorbak is one of these.
** Zorbak's robot Zorboz, which accompanies the [=WarpForce=], is able to make undead versions of robots.
* [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent Our Fish Are Different]]: Enchanter-Fish, a ''beautiful'' Were-FISH which [[spoiler: Trinni turns into]] when she falls asleep.
* RedShirt: [[ParodiedTrope Parodied]], however [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] in that said RedShirt never dies but still gets seriously injured.
* ShoutOut: [[ShoutOut/WarpForce Has its own page]].
* SpacePirates: Karlina and Jayson, who freeze a planet's water in order to make it take up more volume as ice when they sell it. This ends up killing most of the animals who lived on it due being adapted for a warm planet. They come compelete with a [[TalkLikeAPirate pirate accent]].
* SpaceX: There's SpacePirates (as mentioned above) as well as Space Vampires. And Space Leeches.
* TalkLikeAPirate:
** As said above, the SpacePirates speak like this. When you defeat the Defilers defending them, they start speaking normally.
** Captain Frolgar, who also appears in ''VideoGame/{{AdventureQuest}}'', talks like this, in addition to his traditional pirate look.
* {{Technobabble}}: Sometimes this happens in game, causing TheHero to provide a simpler explanation.
* VampireHunter: The quest in which [=DarkSeeker=] Z appears and the [=DarkSeekers=] are mentioned is entirely focused on vampires, and [=DarkSeeker=] Z's attire is very similar to the traditional VampireHunter clothing.
* WalkThePlank: [[SpacePirates Jayson]] threatens to make the PlayerCharacter and Vogenvuld "walk the plank into the fusion coolant".
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: The player can choose their character's hair colour (and eye color), including mundane colours or others like blue, pink and green. Even purple.
