Frogster has confirmed that it will be releasing the fifth chapter to the online role-playing game Runes of Magic in June, entitled Fires of Shadowforge. The expansion will bring new zones complete with dungeons as well as a brand new playable dwarf race, offering players a choice between two original new arcane classes- Sorcerer and Champion.
Chapter V: Fires of Shadowforge sees the reappearance of a race of Dwarves that has lain hidden beneath the ground of Taborea- Shadowforge Dwarves. Bearing, curious tattoos for distinction, the Shadowforge Dwarves are close relatives of the Fireboot Dwarves and share their unique ability to manipulate dark elements to improve their mastery of blacksmithing. However, after a dispute with their dwarven brethren, they were banished below the surface of the earth to live out their existence. While founding a new kingdom within the cave systems the east of the region, the Shadowforge Dwarves spent their time channelling spiritual energy and perfecting the art of runecraft. The years spent underground out of reach of the sun, coupled with their ardent experimentation with the dark elements, have drastically altered their appearance, making their skin pale and their eyes the fieriest among their kin.
Details will be released over the coming weeks on the two classes and their skills as well as more information on the new regions. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details about Runes of Magic.
