Crypt of the March Wardens Screens & Lore

Crypt of the March Wardens Screens & Lore - MMORPG.com

Rift devs have released several screenshots, a piece of concept art and lore behind the Crypt of the March Wardens near Freemarch. The crypt was the peaceful resting place of the protectors of the area until the Rifts came. The Endless Court has come to plunder the tombs, not of riches, but of the bodies of the fallen March Wardens.

Who but the Endless Court would disturb the slumber of the March Wardens? They have broken into the tomb, torn up the stones with their rude digging, and even raised the bodies of noble leaders as lethal undead thralls. Alsbeth the Discordant, mistress of the Endless and right hand of Regulos, has enslaved many of the Wardens’ souls to build a force of elite ghosts. Three of these leaders, Laric, Darribec, and Humbart, now haunt their monuments as Alsbeth’s tortured protectors.

Unliving filth wanders Iron Tomb, zombies and mummies and worse ready to chew the flesh of pilgrims and break the bones of heroes. Poor Caor Ashstone was once Eliam’s most loyal servant, the only commoner honored with a place in Iron Tomb. His corpse has risen, tortured by Death magic and concern for his master, to fall upon intruders in a misguided frenzy.

Check out the screens in our Rift Screenshot Gallery.
