  • The Hundred Days War...

    GameSpot has the last installment of the developer journals on their site that give us a glimpse of the lore behind ArchLord. This week's addition talks about the Hundred Days War.

    1.15. Dulan 522--The Beginning of the Hundred Days War

    By now Ugdrasil had gone very far down the dark path the prophet had spoken of. He saw ultimate power as the only source of peace, and from his studies into the darkest corners of Elemental magic he began to crave the ultimate power of an ArchLord.

  • Diary #2

    Gamespot has another addition to the ArchLord dev diary on their site. In this entry we are treated to more of the history of the world and a bit about the races within it.

    When Cyripus' men didn't find the Archons in Gracia's village, Cyripus supposed she must have left them elsewhere for safekeeping. The safest place she would have known was the main temple in Serend, so that is where he turned his attention next. Dikain, a monk of the highest level, guarded the temple. He was a formidable force all on his own, but since he was surrounded by his people, he was invincible. Cyripus knew he had to destroy Dikain from the inside if he had any hope of gaining any Archons that he guarded.

    Worthplaying has put up a write up of the playable races expected for ArchLord. Not only do they have this fantastic information, but they have screenshots and a new trailer as well!

    ArchLord will feature three distinct races, each with their own unique skills and abilities: the majestic Humans, the towering Orcs and the seductive Moon Elves. Each race has various sub classes: the Human race features Mages, Knights and Rangers, while Orcs have Hunters, Berserkers and Sorcerers. The Moon Elf classes include Rangers and Elementalists.

    ArchLord has recently witnessed an explosion of interest with over 800 fan sites registering online. When the Beta test sign-up began, over 20,000 player applications were made within the first within two hours. ArchLord’s game world, Chantra, is set to be a heavily populated one, so prepare to decide where your allegiance will lie.

  • You're getting a double shot of Archlord goodness today. First, there is an interview with CM Tim Hodges over at IGN.

    Then you can make your way to RPG Vault where they have a set of new screenshots.

    Enjoy the trip and then you can come back here to find more Archlord News.

    On a side note... what's the deal with all of this pre-E3 coverage junk? Like you guys aren't smart enough to figure out that it's a gimmick to get your pageviews. *sigh* Aren't you glad we don't resort to that kind of nonsense?
