ASHERON’S
CALL EVENT: "TO RAISE A BANNER OF FLAME" NOW UNDERWAY

 

Microsoft
announced today that the "To Raise a Banner of Flame" event is now
underway in the dynamic world of Asheron’s Call. Veteran and new players alike
are being called upon to take up arms against a slew of hideous new creatures.
Players are encouraged to utilize new weapons, including strong variations of
maces and spears, as they battle the latest threat to the land of Dereth.

 

These
days in Dereth have grown dark indeed with the sun’s light filtering through
motes of ash in the air. Along with these darkened skies and the orange
burning sun, the threat of impending danger fills the realm. High-level heroes
have been seen staggering back to safer towns, claiming to have come from a
hereto unseen land. Their claims have been questioned, however, since none of
these survivors seem able, or willing, to map this land’s location. They
vehemently warn all listeners against retracing their steps, and warn that
it’s not a land for the novice. According to their tales, new and stronger
monstrous kin have surfaced in Dereth. Whatever beasts these men allude to,
true evidence of fearsome monsters has surfaced just east of the Direlands.
The areas of the northern and southern mountains, as well as deep in some
forests, have become flooded with more vile creatures. The challenge awaits!

 

Asheron’s
Call is a massively multiplayer role-playing game playable exclusively on
Zone.com (http://www.zone.com/) that draws together thousands of players
within a dynamic, 3-D online world. Players can create truly unique characters
by choosing between extensive combinations of visual appearance, attributes

online players. An extensive system of allegiance and influence greatly
enhances social interaction. The online nature of the game facilitates an
evolving and dynamic adventure inside a consistent universe. The game will
never be solved because there will always be more areas to explore and quests
to complete.
