Black Chicken Studios Announces the Release of College Morvidus: A Friend in Need!,

***

San Diego, CA– February 25, 2011– Black Chicken Studios is delighted to present our sixth free DLC for Academagia: The Making of Mages, A Friend in Need!

Unlooked for, in the final hour before the ships sailed to the Onyx Isles, the host of King Morvoldr came out of the mists of the north, axes ready in their hands and war-beasts at their sides. Having heard the rumor of King Durand in even his far-off kingdom, Morvoldr would not allow the men of Rimerta to sail into the unknown east friendless. Such was the generous friendship of the northmen that they came without promise of treasure or the consolation of pride, for they knew and valued the sacrifices that had been made without them.

But are there limits on friendship, and the high costs it can incur?

This DLC includes:

·         7 new Adventures, set around the College of Morvidus: more than one plea for aid awaits!

·         20+ new Events, dealing with the fellowship and fortitude of the Students of Morvidus

·         1 new Skill, over 15 Items, and lots of new Abilities, Actions, Locations and Spells for new ways to establish your Character in Elumia

Additionally, Mod Tools are now available so that players can create their own stories, mysteries and magic!

Academagia: The Making of Mages retails for $24.95 and includes all the fun and adventure of the original game with all new content from College Morvidus: A Friend in Need! as well as our five previous free content releases . It is available from www.academagia.com as well as through digital distribution at Beamdog, GamersGate and Impulse.
