Drowned Shore Visited in New Developer Blog

Drowned Shore Visited in New Developer Blog - Neverwinter -

Content Designers Scott Crawford and Brian Gillmore have posted a new developer blog on the Neverwinter site that gives players both lore and design backgrounds on the Drowned Shore zone (formerly known as "Blackdagger Ruins) that will arrive with Module 6: Elemental Evil.

In the first half of the article, players are provided with the back story behind Drowned Shore.

A tidal wave of disastrous effect has slammed into what was once known as the Blackdagger Ruins and all members of the Neverwinter Guard are assumed dead. Elemental Princess Olhydra appears to be behind the disaster and has brought a legion of aquatic monsters with her and has found willing allies in cult members made up of pirates, rogues and sailors. Players will be working with the Emerald Enclave and forming an alliance with the Sea Elves, Alu'Tel'Quessir, in order to bring peace back to the region.

From a design perspective, Gillmore said:

In each of the Elemental Evil zones, the focal point of the cult's power is a towering elemental beacon. Here, that beacon is the fortress called Reclamation Rock. The Elemental Cult gained entry to the city claiming to be the Black Earth Mercenary Company, but soon turned on the people of Helm's Hold. To cement their hold on the city, the Cult of the Black Earth raised a towering stone spire in a single night with their powerful elemental magic. Adding insult to injury, their fortress burst from the ground right where players originally launched their counter-attack on the Ashmadai. Cultists now patrol the streets of Helm's Hold and stalk the forests. It will be up to the players to thwart their forces, which include armies of soldiers, elementals, and classic D&D monsters like gorgons, the slaadi, and the dreaded bulette.
