If I remember correctly, they made that one with gnomes. A cruel practice that should have been outlawed years ago.

South Korea is not a signatuary in the International Gnome Labour Protection Treaty. As a result, many companies setup shop there as a way around the law. Ragnarok Online was produced in the same Gnome sweatshop as ROSE Online, which used 700 Gnomes, 100 for each world.

This practice is highly unethical. As a gnome myself, I find the treatment of gnome labourers in Korea deplorable and these sorts of sweat shops should be shut down. Of course, as a realist and one who respects the sovergnty of Korea, I can't see this happening unless the gnome labourers do something about it themselves.

Didn't South Korea lose their membership in the UN Human Rights council because of their MMORPGs?

I don't know the answer to your question... but I do know that there is an application which claims to be a Ragnarok server emulator made by dwarves: eAthena

I'm hearing all this "practice of GNome" stuff. But what are you talking about with sweatshops, practices, ect.

It's a game & I want to know what they made it with.
