Wolfpack has updated the site for their upcoming 3D MMORPG Shadowbane with part one of four history segments featuring different "Ages" that form the backstory for the game. This first update features the Age of Kings, the most recent period of history in the mythos surrounding this title. It's an impressive piece of work, and worthwhile reading if you're a fantasy buff looking forward to Shadowbane. Here's a clip:
We shall begin with Shadowbane’s third coming, in the Age of Kings that so recently and darkly ended. This was the Age of Men, when the Ten Kingdoms of old stood as the pinnacle of young Mankind’s achievements. It was the age of the High King, the Fire of Virtue, who fought not for power but for Justice. His great Code and the deeds of his shining Champions united the Sons of Men. Glorious as this age was, it was also an age of war. Cambruin won his crown on the field of battle, and fought long, bloody fights with Orcs, Northmen, and even Giants. Yet all these wars pale beside the War of Tears, which in the end was the undoing of both the High King and his dire enemies, the Elvish Host.Check out the rest of the article for much more. It's good to know Shadowbane will have such an in-depth story to back up this Mac-friendly massively-multiplayer title. For new media of the game, check out the new background image and screen shots available at the official web site. Other new images are also available at GA-Source, so have a look there as well. Shadowbane is currently in closed beta, and it is hoped the title will be available later this year.
