Dev Journal: The Design of Slywood

Dev Journal: The Design of Slywood -

The Chronicles of Spellborn official site has been updated with another dev journal from their art department.  This week's journal looks at the design of a place called Slywood.

Slywood is a dark place amidst the lush and green lands, which compromise most of upper Ringfell. Ringfell in the old times was a coastal area. What is now called a lower Ringfell (one of the three areas) was then a bottom of an ocean, which now is long dried up.

Slywood though hasn’t always been quite as dark and gloomy as it is today. There have been times, very recent times even, when it was as bright and fertile as the other regions. That’s not to say it wasn’t always a bit peculiar. The crops growing on the fields were known to be different from crops growing anywhere else. Not even three mills could handle the amounts produced each year.

And the strange gargantuan sword that towers over the Balemeadow, has been the source of many fantastic stories. No item of this kind was ever found on any of the known shards. It’s not even certain who or what put it there.
