May 2016 Teaser
« on: May 17, 2016, 11:20:40 AM »
Teaser 1:

The lush and ancient forest of Elimar stretches for miles across the island. Mosses and vines silently creep across the forest floor, invading cracks and crevices of the stone beneath it. Animals, sensing the danger creeping towards them, flee the floral doom that silently twists across the rocky terrain.

The portal from Shadowfall to Elimar shimmers with an eerie blue glow. A thin covering of green mist can be seen flowing around the portal, investigating.

Those attuned to magic can sense the slight push of energy flowing outward into Elimar from Shadowfall, flooding the land with power.

The forest can sense the rush of magic into Elimar. This growing season will be the greatest ever, better even than when the enchantments were first laid. The fleshy beasts will be devoured and their blood will feed the new spawns that are beginning to ripen.

Teaser 2:

He strolls through the broken and cracked stone halls, deep under the ruins above. He stops at another cell and peers through the open doorway. Another empty one, the situation is worsening. He frowns at the thought.

His guards have reported activity at the old Biata village. People from another place, again. Will they come here? Can they survive the trip? His thoughts are broken by one of his guards interrupting.

The Lizard folk from the swamp are responsible this time? The Beast is free, another frown forms on his face. What of the break out last month? Were the Lizard folk responsible for that one as well?

These escapes are becoming more frequent. He shifts his thoughts to the control room. Suddenly his vision blurs for a fraction of a second and then focus' on the panel before him. So many gems have lost their glow that he can no longer spare the guards to search for escapees.

He frowns again.

Teaser 3:

Ancient metal armor grinds against itself as the figure walks the long corridor, his glowing eyes providing enough light for him to easily navigate the familiar halls.

He reaches his destination, a double door that was once ornate and gilded, now covered in tarnish and rot. He reaches his gauntlet entombed hand out and pushes the doors open, they complain as they usually do, and he enters the great hall.

The hall is filled with the spirits of the dead trapped by necromancy to serve the Lord of the Great Hall. The spirits move about, reliving their final moments, screaming garishly as the knight crosses their path on his way to the throne.

A figure sits quietly on the throne, a spectral crown fades in and out of existence on top of a bony skull. Slowly, the lich raises its head to look at the approaching knight.

"Sir Brack, what brings you to court today?" asks the lich in a grating voice from beyond the grave.

"Your Majesty, it is as we feared. The magic flowing from the portal has awoken Kazelthrym." reports the Death Knight.

The lich straightens his posture, the rune covered bones twist and clack against each other under withered ancient flesh. Wisps of green mist flow from the lich's mouth as he speaks to the Death Knight. "Organize our forces, Sir Brack. If she has awakened, the others will not be far along."

"Yes, your majesty." nods the Death Knight.
