Shadowbane Bard's Tale
9:24 AM | Mike Apps | Comment on this story

The latest Shadowbane Bard's Tale was recently posted on the Shadowbane website. As with previous tales, this latest Bard's Tale takes a look at the latest happenings in the Shadowbane game world from the perspective of one of its characters. These stories highlight the main aspect of Shadowbane that makes it stand out, the ability for the players themselves to write the history of its world.

This tale focuses on revent conflicts, here's a preview:

My dearest Turlindiel Callromir,

While visiting the city of Knights Bridge as part of the ongoing Aerynthian Codex project, I have found the streets awash with the tidings of a new war raging across Tyrranth Major. The details of these engagements make my head spin - you know me to be most uninterested in the makings of war, and unimpressed with those who have a propensity for the shedding of blood. I care little for the company of generals and their strong arms. But one tale has arisen from this conflict that has captivated the fancy of most everyone who has ears to hear.

You see, the now infamous leader of the Burning Legion, the one who goes by the name Bone Dancer, is rumored to be afflicted with a shape-shifting condition. Specifically, he has become a Wererat!

Some say he really is a vermin who can take the shape of a man, but I have seen little to support that assertion. Although, I can admit that the notion is not yet completely discounted.

Shadowbane is currently in Beta stages, and is being developed for both Mac and PC. Both versions are to be published by Ubi Soft. For more information, or to read the whole Bard's Tale, follow the below links.
