New cinematic trailer for Runes of Magic recounts the story of the Shadowforge Dwarves
With an impressive cinematic trailer, Frogster has entered the home straight for the release of Runes of Magic: Chapter V – Fires of Shadowforge on 12 June 2012. In a sequence of breathtaking shots, the story of the Shadowforge Dwarves unfolds as the new playable race that lends its name to the chapter. For generations, they lay undiscovered in suspended animation. Now they are set to unleash their magical powers and advanced smithing on the demons of Taborea.
The Shadowforge Dwarves, who once belonged to the clan of the Fireboot Dwarves, experimented with dark magic and control of the elements from time immemorial. When a dark magic experiment went terribly wrong, all inhabitants of their underground kingdom were turned to stone. Not until centuries later did royal reconnaissance patrols discover their dormant bodies and lift the curse plaguing their race. Soon Runes of Magic players will be able to create their own dwarven characters and have the option of playing as two new exclusive classes: the Champion and the Warlock. The Shadowforge Dwarves have slept for long enough; now they must rise to action!
Frogster is also hosting a special event in the form of a live stream on Thursday, the 7th of June. Anyone interested can tune in via the hosting service own3d.tv from 8pm CEST to watch a group of players take their first steps into the new region. In addition to the new race and its exclusive classes, the new high-level instance, the Aeternal Circle, will also be presented.
