Cabal Siena The Queen Story Teaser 3

Here is the conclusion to the amazing story behind the upcoming patch for the Philippines' top MMORPG, Cabal - Siena the Queen.

Maku Sha's charge towards us stopped abruptly, shadows lifting up from the cracked stone floor, weaving through and around those huge legs. The beast roared at us, a loud, animal noise that had nothing in common with the speech that came from its mouth only moments before.

"It will not hold for long." The Force Blader spoke, and I thought I detected the tiniest amount of strain in his voice. "I really suggest we take care of this as fast as we can." He stepped past me and the Warrior, his left hand moving through the forms of binding and weakening. I've encountered those before, on the field of battle, and barely escaped with my life. I remember that terrible weakness, my blades suddenly almost too heavy to lift, unable to move...

I hate these guys...

The momentary coldness of the gate was enough to make me shiver slightly, after the damp humidity of the Mutant Forest, and I was almost grateful for it, rather the cold than that godawful humid heat. My relief was very short-lived, as I emerged from the gate to find the area on the other side even worse than the outside. The first thing that struck me was the smell, a cloying, sickly-sweet stench that made it hard to breathe, and I heard one of my companions gasp as they entered through the gate behind me. The room was eerily silent, not even the slightest rustling or far-off noises that was the constant background sounds of the Mutant Forest.

My eyes took a moment to adapt to the gloom, and it became apparent that I was standing in a large room, rather than a cave, a broken-down, collapsed room, covered with twisted plant-growth and illuminated by whatever the hell was growing on the broken walls, but a room nonetheless.

What happened to the builders? Victims of the Great Destruction... This ruin was supposed to be a temple, but how long ago, and dedicated to what...

The voice was quiet, and low enough that I could feel it rather than hear it.

"You dare to step into this place?"

Blade and Soul: What Makes It Stand Out

The game Blade & Soul had gained worldwide praise when it was unveilled by NCsoft 3 months ago. Recently NCsoft releases a new record for players, and schedules to launch it in 2009.

What makes Blade and Soul stand out from other games in its genre is its unique art style and its combat focus. Many MMORPGs have a medieval style, and focus heavily on Norse-type mythologies; dwarfs, elves, fairies, swords and sorcery, etc.

Blade and Soul models it's characters from artwork by renowned Korean manhwa artist Hyung-tae Kim, whose Asian flair is prominent throughout his work. Blade and Soul, embracing this flair, focuses on Asian martial-arts and fantasy instead of European, making for pleasantly unique and exciting visuals.
