Sorry about this, while getting the April newsletter ready we realized that the March newsletter hadn't been posted here! Faction Wars went quite well and there is a ton of new lore on the site. The April newsletter should be out tomorrow, but here is the March newsletter for those who missed it: March Newsletter
Our February newsletter went out yesterday, jam packed with loads of new information and updates to our community site! Most substantially, we have completely overhauled the lore sections of the site, pulling together the stories in our stories page, and releasing all new faction info in the faction pages!
You can read the newsletter in full here: February Newsletter
The Faction Wars Begin!
The time has come. Light the beacons, sound the drums and gather the faithful. The Faction Wars have begun!
As some of you might have read in our February newsletter, we're launching the Faction Wars event. We were so inspired by the community's interest in the factions that we decided to support your war efforts with a series of art, lore and music releases.
Our team was eager to take part in these friendly clashes alongside our community so we've all chosen sides! It's time for you all to follow our example and pick your side in the Faction Wars!
To help you choose – and to make it more exciting – we’re opening the campaign with our Faction Wars Competition!
Read an excerpt from the Chronicle of Rhemen and explore the myths of Caerloth. This week Rhemen tells us why the priests of Brytach Tor cut out their tongues, and unveils the Wordless Sage of the Chulheri! Get it right here:
