Shadows of War: Queen's Death Revealed

The Shadows of War Saga Finale Continues This Weekend

The war is over. Your allies have survived intact – for the most part – but your battle is not yet done. This weekend, fight your way though the depths of the Timestream and the remains of the timelines Malgor left behind. Hidden deep inside these dead cycles, the ShadowLord is waiting… and so is the full truth about how the Queen of Monsters really died.

This weekend, /join worldscore and prepare to:

  • Battle alongside Gravelyn as you explore deeper into the Plane of Mana
  • Discover where Princess Tara has been all this time, and how she survived her death
  • Meet her "friends"  -- powerful entities that wish to assess you, and how much of a threat you are
  • Discover more about who, or what, the Old World Order is

The Story so Far...
