Together with the main release of ‘Chapter III – The Elder Kingdoms’ on the 18th of May, the miry wastes of the ‘Southern Janost Forest’ open up in the north-west of the Thunderhoof Hills. The new Runes of Magic zone contains numerous new quests for adventurers at character level 57 and above.
The stifling air of the Southern Janost Forest hangs damp and heavy and the swampy landscape is full of dangers. This is the home of the principality of Shador, a people of forest dwellers who have taken the art of the bow and arrow to new heights of perfection. The mother of the race, Jenny ‘The Thousand Feathers’ Giant was long ago a close ally of the venerable King Kalume. Over the centuries, however, the splendour of the race has paled and now Thousand Feathers’ descendants campaign in the marshes cut through with rocky mountains against the brutal forces from the Warnorken Castle. The bastion of the barbarous Baron Reuen von Jura is the source of all evil in the Southern Janost Forest. But brave adventurers – despatched by the child king Callaway – now gather in the swamps and seek solidarity with the noble people of Shador.
Yet players first of all have to win the trust of the shy forest-folk. There are abundant quests in which adventurers have to win the favour of the Shador. In the whole zone there are over 100 new quests which relate to the history of the Southern Janost Forest. These can be experienced from the 18th of May!
