AUSTIN, TEXAS - (MARCH 30, 2010) -- True Games Interactive, an international multi-player online game developer and publisher, along with award-winning developer, Petroglyph, today announced that its highly-anticipated online, multiplayer action/RPG with strategic game play, Mytheon, which is now in closed beta at www.MytheonGame.com, has revealed the details behind the exciting stone merge system in the game. Players or“Stonecasters” can combine one of six different sets of stones that, when paired together, create a“super weapon.” Below are details on three of the unique sets that can be created in the game, including the Warcaster’s Avatar of Nemesis, the Elementalist’s Ritual of Elemental Fury and the Eidolon’s Avatar of Gaia.
“The power stone system in Mytheon is already a unique gameplay feature, but the merge system adds an all-new element with its power to create“super weapons,” said Peter Cesario, Director of New Business and Product Development at True Games Interactive. Added Randy King of Petroglyph,“Players will appreciate the collectible nature of the stone sets, along with the incredible abilities that these stone sets will give them when they transform into spells, structures and minions.”
Warcaster merge set --AVATAR OF NEMESIS
By casting the triad of Nemesis Stones, Warcasters can summon to their side the menacing Avatar of Nemesis. The avatar consists of three Nemesis Stones that burn with power and rage: the Wrath, Shrine, and Champion of Nemesis. Donning a shroud imbued with the earthly element of fire, the Avatar of Nemesis directs its vengeance upon the vile and hate-filled creatures who dare to attack mankind.
All three Nemesis Stones aid in the heat of battle, but only the Avatar of Nemesis grants the god's true power to Warcasters. Its quick counterattacks and deadly arrows against the minions of the gods can assist mortal warriors in gaining the upper hand. Blazing strikes leveled at the avatar are immediately deflected from its form and are fired back upon the attacker. Tapping into divine powers to pinpoint foes hidden among the brush and ruins on the battlefield, the Avatar of Nemesis dispatches flaming arrows that explode on contact, leaving enemy battalions in disarray.
Elementalist merge set --RITUAL OF ELEMENTAL FURY
The four elements of nature create a potent, fantastical effect when cast together by Elementalists. Power Stones possessing the essences of Earth, Air, Fire, and Water use these principal aspects to deal tremendous and spectacular destruction. Calling upon these elements taps directly into the raw, primal forces of the universe. Elementalists were gifted these wondrous elements so they may restore harmony to this war-town world and free humanity from the gods’ destructive whims.
When an Elementalist casts the four elemental stones to perform the Ritual of Elemental Fury, a massive storm of nature’s forces is unleashed. Winds tear down from the skies and rain down ranged attacks that sharply diminish the attack power of opponents. The trembling earth stuns all grounded foes, leaving them frozen in place for a time. The element of fire dispels any beneficial enchantments enjoyed by enemies, and foes’ movement is severely hindered as their limbs and muscles begin to feel as though icy waters were coursing through their veins.
Eidolon merge set-- AVATAR OF GAIA
The goddess Gaia is the primal personification of Earth, and three unique aspects form her nature. Individually, the Courage, Rage, and Will of Gaia Power Stones cast by the Eidolon summon spectacular allies to the battlefield. Siding with mankind, she has gifted her aspects willingly to the Fates so that mortal Stonecasters may reign victorious in their battles.
Wearing a leathery tunic and plated guards of petrified oak strong enough to deflect most mortal weapons, the Avatar of Gaia is protected from even virulent attacks. She faces down the loathsome monsters of the gods with unparalleled resilience and fortitude. She emits an aura of destruction that cascades upon foes and dispels all undead adversaries and spirits. A powerful combination of Power Stones, the Avatar of Gaia can quickly clear the field of enemy onslaughts.
Mytheon is an online, multiplayer action/RPG with strategic game play where players experience classic mythology come to life and challenge legendary gods to define their own fate. Players, or "Stonecasters," are powerful humans imbued with the ability to cast spells, summon minions, and erect structures that aid them in battle. An assortment of classes are available that approach combat differently and offer a range of unique, cinematic abilities.
