FROGSTER TO ADD PLANT SYSTEM TO RUNES OF MAGIC

Green Fingered Players Will Gain Access to Valuable Resources

Frogster America, Inc. today announced that it will soon introduce a new plant cultivation system for Runes of Magic, the Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (MMORPG) that is redefining the standard for free-to-play titles. The new feature gives players the opportunity to grow and harvest plants from the fantasy world of Taborea, giving them access to valuable crafting resources. The plant system will be deployed across the servers in one of the up-coming updates and is currently live on the test server.

For successful planting, players will need a pot which they can then set up in their player’s house. There will be a wide range of different plants to choose from, and seeds can either be dropped by slain foes, or bought in the Item Shop. The quality of the seeds defines the yield of the plants once they have grown to maturity. Players who regularly water their plants and fertilize them with magical runes will find that within three to seven days they will have a harvest. The plants have the chance of producing a rare yield and will need to be cared for especially well. If players neglect their plants, they'll wither and die after a few days.

Once the plants have grown, players will finally see the fruits of their labor. The extent of the yield from the plants ranges from special runes, which adventurers can use to upgrade their character's equipment, to ores, wood and new plants. With the right kind of seeds, the harvest can even produce rare "blue" crafting material.
