Sword Coast Legends Articles
Tomorrow marks the official launch of Sword Coast Legends, and today we’re happy to present to you the final four main characters you’ll be accompanied by on your journal through the main campaign. Read on to learn about Larathar, Jarhild, Izhkin, and Soronil!
It’s been kept pretty tightly under wraps, but the Sword Coast Legends single-player campaign is tied closely to WotC’s overall plans with D&D. To get you prepped for the cast of characters you’re going to meet with the story, we’ve got these exclusive bios of the cast. Today we’re meeting four of the eight main characters you’ll fight alongside. So buckle up and dig in!
We've shown off a lot of Sword Coast Legends' more prominent and known monsters this week, but today, we're getting weird with the Vrock and the Otyugh. Seriously, these are not your typical D&D monsters. Read on for the details on the winged harpy-like Vrock and the nasty bulbous Otyugh!
Sword Coast Legends, due out at the end of this month, sports a lot of the creatures from Dungeons and Dragons' illustrious history. But, unlike most RPGs, you can actually play as these monsters should you decide to take on the role of Dungeon Master, in our third of a series today we're pulling back the veil on the Duergar and the Drow... two races you'll face deep in the Underdark of the Sword Coast.
In the meeting halls of the Grand Sheraton Hotel in downtown Seattle last weekend Rob Lashley sat down to play Sword Coast Legends for the first time. He was limited in time, only 20 minutes, but these are his first impressions as playing as the DM.
Sword Coast Legends' multiplayer component is a (up to) five player experience set in the classic Dungeons and Dragons region of the Sword Coast. Or if you prefer, Neverwinter, Baldurs Gate and Icewind Dale can all call the Sword Coast home. Classic Dungeons and Dragons. Dare I say, proper Dungeons and Dragons? That I'll leave up to dyed in the wool D&D fans to debate.
One of the absolute highlights of E3 2015 was finally getting hands on with n-Games upcoming multiplayer RPG Sword Coast Legends. You’re likely following this one already, but just in case you’re not: it’s essentially the second coming of Neverwinter Nights, and it looks and plays gloriously. What’s more? It’ll let you build your own campaigns from scratch and lord over four players as a benevolent (or in my case, sadistic) dungeon master.
Call it Baldur’s Gate nostalgia, call it Planescape: Torment elitism, but I’m a sucker for 3D isometric, party-based RPGs, and doubly so for games based in Dungeons and Dragons-inspired campaign settings. Enter Sword Coast Legends, a new Forgotten Realms-based RPG from n-Space and Digital Extremes that is being touted as an evolution of games like Baldur’s Gate and Neverwinter Nights and draws its inspiration from 5th Edition D&D.
