Today, Dark and Light released what could only be considered to be a teaser for the upcoming opening of "Settlers of Ganereth", which in and of itself is only a preview of the game to come:
Settlers of Ganareth Launches on December 8th, 2005
As the seething mass attends it's tasks in the camp, few take notice of the shadows that emerge from behind the hill… Fourteen shapes walk down the mountain...they neither hide nor flee. A few battalions begin to take up arms, and prepare for the fight. Dragoon’s General is not disturbed; he is convinced that his name is sufficient to make any mortal flee in terror… But those who walk down the hill are not mere mortals. They are the Immortals – they are the vengeful arm of Gothar. They walk boldly down the hill, eager to fulfill their master’s command. The Orcs and Trolls line up downhill, facing the fourteen Immortals. They sense that these fighters are not their common prey; they show neither fear nor anguish. It is Dragoon's legions who have become the prey, but they have yet to realize it! The fourteen fighters disband after crossing the valley… In their wake, they leave only smoke and bloodless Dragon corpses. Now the Fourteen's quest is to seek out mortal disciples and instruct them in the Immortal arts. Men, Elves, Dwarves, Gnomes, and many more will train and grow strong – these are the Apostles and it is they who will lead the first force to truly challenge Dragoon’s power.
You are about to enter a world of chaos and desolation: You will have to repel Dragon armies, recapture wild lands, and build the first fortresses to hold what you take back… With time and the Apostles’ teachings, little by little, economic activity and the first traders will re-appear… You are the chosen ones, the front line in this crusade: You are the pioneers of the resettlement. The greatest among you will learn Teachings from the Apostles themselves. You are Gothar’s first soldiers in the massive army He is gathering for the survival of all - and for a new hope in the world of Ganareth.
