*slap* "Stupid insects!", the aging warrior growled while trying to make his way through the swampy puddles, flailing his arms this way and that to repel the mosquitoes zeroing in on him. His helmet's visor didn't make things easier.
"You should have listened to me," the mage said. "This potion of mine might not smell too nice, but it definitely would have solved *that* problem for you." This said she focused on her spell that keept her hovering just millimetres above the surface of the slimy swamp's surface. Rolling up the sleeves of her robe she said with a smirk "As you can see: not a single sting."
"Oh, do shut up! Keep looking where you are going, lest you tumble over and your spell makes you land head-first in this slurry!" the warrior replied, only provoking a wider grin and a giggle.
On their way exploring the newly discovered lands in the north-east of Ravenfell, the two were met with exotic plants, high as mountains, and these marshes full insects lusting for the blood of wary travellers. And they met the all but peaceful Tiktaalik, creatures half fish, half man, chasing them through half the bog they now were stranded in.
Some of the adventurers exploring these lands before them, mentioned a human settlement. That was where they were heading. It couldn't be far, just behind those trees over there! Maybe they knew more about the Trolls and the Naga - and maybe they had a quest or two that would pay for their expenses and reveal more of the secrets these foul creatures might harbour.
Welcome to the Weeping Coast!
The next big update to Runes of Magic already is already heralding its approach!
Before "Chapter Two: The Elven Prophecy" will be released, we already implement a new zone for Runes of Magic: "The Weeping Coast".
The swap landscape with its branching channels lies north-east of Ravenfell and crawls with the fish-like Tiktaalik, Nagas, Trolls and many more dangerous creatures. With the release of that zone we will raise the level limit to 52 and introduce 200 new quests.
Scheduled for August this year the release of the 'Weeping Coast' marks the start of the multi-stage launch of 'The Elven Prophecy'.
