The Legend of Shadowbane - Part 2
9:07 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
Shadowbane, Wolfpack's upcoming Massively-Multiplayer Online RPG, continues
to reveal its already incredibly rich background story. Recently posted on the official
Shadowbane site is Part 2 of The Legend of Shadowbane. For those unfamiliar with the story,
The Legend of Shadowbane details the history of a sword responsible for shifting the course of a world
three times over. Known by many names, its most famous name (and the namesake of the game itself) is Shadowbane.
Part 2, entitled The Age of Days, tells the
tale of Beregund Bladeseeker and the War of the Scourge. Besides weaving a good story,
it gives more insight into the working dynamics of the game itself, including the histories and motivations
of the various races:
So began the War of the Scourge, the direst conflict in all the History of the World. Yet even in this dark hour hope
was reborn, for the Elves, Men, Centaurs, and even the Giants joined together in a mighty alliance to save the World,
forgetting the enmity that had divided them since Time began. So all of the All-Fatherís children stood as one for the
only time in the History of the World. Alas, even all their might together could not stem the foul tide of Chaos. Battle
after battle was lost, and many heroes whose like shall never again be seen died in that terrible conflict.
The Legend of Shadowbane
If you're eagerly anticipating Shadowbane, or you just like fantasy literature in general, the Legend of Shadowbane is definitely worth a read. Shadowbane is currently
scheduled to be released sometime late this year.
