FROGSTER CELEBRATES SPRING RAIN FESTIVAL IN RUNES OF MAGIC
Series of Events Go Live In-Game to Celebrate Spring
Frogster America, Inc. today announced that it will be celebrating the Spring Rain Festival in Runes of Magic, the Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (MMORPG) that is redefining the standard for free-to-play titles. Beginning today, players have a new series of adventures to discover and challenges to master as the game continues to add new content on a weekly basis since its March 19th launch.
The Spring Rain festival is rooted in ancient legend and is a symbol of the Earth’s rebirth. Legend tells of a traveler named Castor, who, a long time ago, appeared in a village where the inhabitants were suffering from hunger and were in great need since their harvest had failed that year. So, the traveler gave them a gift which was a special rainbow egg. The following spring, the seeds from this brightly colored egg sprouted with lots of trees with leaves and blossoms in the most beautiful rainbow colors and the time of misery came to an end. From this time onward, it then became the custom in Taborea to exchange brightly colored rainbow eggs between adventurers in honor of Castor during the Spring Rain Festival.
There are numerous quests surrounding the Spring Rain Festival with a wide range of rewards. For example, during the festival period, there are the wondrous rabbit-like ‘wabbits’ cavorting about the Runes of Magic world and they hold some surprises for players. They will be handing out gift parcels in reward for completed tasks, which among other things may contain a ‘wabbit’ pet or a drink which briefly turns players into rabbits themselves.
