Shroud of the Avatar Previews Kas Ruins, Custom NPCs Needed

shroud of the avatar kas ruinsThis week’s Shroud of the Avatar newsletter gives readers a quick look at the new Kas Ruins. An open PvP zone inspired by the Rocky Mountains and the Grand Tetons. Level Designer Esteban Zaldivar writes:

“The Kas Ruins are one of the six ruined cities found in Novia that date back to the period in Novian history in which the Obsidian Order rose to power. (As described in the Sword of Midras prequel novel by Tracy Hickman and Richard Garriott). The exact history of some of these cities has been lost to time, but it is rumored that some of them may have been abandoned even before the rise of the Obsidians. Kas is the site of the ruins of an ancient Paladin fort high atop a mountainside. At the foot of the mountain is an abandoned village with a small graveyard. The entire area has become overrun by the undead.”

The developers are also starting to populate Harvest with NPC inhabitants. Backers with NPC creation privileges who want to have their NPCs placed in the port town should submit their entries now. If you want your NPC placed in another area, like Brittany, for example, you’ll have to wait for further notice.
