Do you fancy yourself a lore buff? Searching out every book, every note, every sign, and every single inscription ever laid on any medium within an MMO? If you do I say good on you! I for one cannot muster the mental focus necessary to read small text within an MMO. I’m here to loot and pillage dammit! But alas I do enjoy a dash of lore from time to time.

Cryptic studio hears my cries and produces from its depths a trailer that meets the needs of the lore masses. A trailer that showcases how a monastery can be more than just a place where bald individuals go to reflect and throw punches faster than the human eye can see.

Ok so not all monasteries are for reflection or honing superhuman combat skills. In the case of the monastery within Helm’s Hold in Neverwinter, it is a place where demonic horrors corrupt the souls of the recently deceased or dying. Yeesh, not a good place for a relaxing day at the spa.

For those fearing the trailer holds nothing more than a disembodied voice speaking over landscape pans and concept art, fear not. The trailer comes equipped with plenty of in-game action for us to scrutinize and make early judgements about.

  1. When the voice-over was talking about devils I realized something…Nothing in that video looked like a devil, or acted like one(granted we didn’t get to see much so who knows what it will really be like). I mean, correct me if I am wrong, but a devil is a lawful evil being who offers contracts to individuals for many reasons(from power to popularity to money), but they don’t normally(from what I understand) actually enter the battle. From what I know, devils cannot be defeated without knowing their true name, which could make the fights kind of interesting, but it is also worrying how they might include that into the game. No matter what, however, I will still me playing this game when it comes out!

    Also, Helm’s followers have always and will always be a problem, those who cannot compromise always lead to war.
