Throne of Oblivion Overview

Throne of Oblivion Overview -

UbiSoft released a nice overview today for their upcoming second expansion for Shadowbane - Throne of Oblivion.  Here is an excerpt from this page:

We recently announced the second Expansion Pack for Shadowbane entitled Throne of Oblivion that spotlights the sudden appearance of its namesake, the dreadful island of Oblivion.  This is where the Lich-Queen Ithriana marshals the unholy legions of the Void. Strange sorceries somehow managed to "reflect" the island across the scattered fragments of Aerynth, appearing everywhere as a foreboding deaths-head of malice. The Expansion Pack includes a variety of new content such as the new Vampire Race to an extensive new system that allows Guilds to claim rulership over an entire realm, gaining power and prestige.  To learn more, read on.

Shadow of the Vampires
Throne of Oblivion introduces many new character options, as well as a wealth of new systems and features. The title of the Expansion points to the two main themes running through the expansion. The most obvious theme is the last, "Oblivion," referring to the undead content. As depicted on the cover art, the expansion introduces an entirely new character race: the Vampires. Vampires are the chosen generals of Oblivion, fiends who have been claimed by the black powers of death, body and soul. Whatever form they held in life, when claimed by Oblivion a Vampire's body is completely transformed. Wiped away are any vestiges of their old selves - tinted or tattooed skin crumbles into dust, revealing pale flesh as hard as granite. Their pale skin, red glowing eyes, and bestial ears offer visible testimony to their dark allegiance. Vampires are blessed with uncannily high attributes, resistances, and a natural fortitude that makes them very hard to kill in battle. All their powers, however, come at a high price: the Blood is the Life, and Vampires must constantly feed if they hope to survive.
