New Starter Zone Revealed

7 March 2013 - Hampshire, UK/... In Dragon’s Prophet, players will be able to choose where they want to start their adventure from after being attacked by a band of traitors. Having introduced the starter zone Bakra last week, Infernum Productions today wants to guide you through the many wonders of the second starter zone, Satuma. Adventurers will be able to complete more than 200 quests in order to unravel the dark plots that are threatening to tear this once-peaceful region apart, and reach level 30.

Satuma is located in Mangard, which forms the western part of Auratia. This large area consists of wide plains surrounded by high mountains. Numerous battles were fought here during the First Dragon War, each changing the area a bit more and eventually transforming it into a massive natural lake where all the main rivers of Mangard meet.

Water is an important element in the life of Satuma. Many villages are populated by fishermen who make use of the vast resources of the surrounding lakes and rivers. The village of Hunak is no different, except for its location just above the Kylar Abyss, at the point where all the rivers in Satuma meet. To the east of Hunak lies an ancient and lush woodland, the Avanah Forest. This large and flourishing forest is the main source of construction materials for the village. However, it also shelters a great threat which looms over the nearby villages: the Forest Giants, fierce and terrible creatures that never miss an opportunity to attack lumberjacks foolish enough to venture too far into the forest.

The Avanah Forest is not the only place where danger awaits our players. In the northwest part of Satuma, a fortified city was built halfway up a mountain by the famous and sly General Deyarka, who once led an evil army during the First Dragon War. The city was badly damaged in battle and captured by Osira forces afterwards, but the ruins are now home to another species of sub-humans, the wolfmen, who gave the City of Deyarka its new name: the Wolfman Stronghold.

Players will have a difficult, but rewarding time exploring Satuma, searching for clues about the traitors who attacked them and their motivations. Many abandoned dungeons await players and up to four of their friends for a group experience with three different levels of difficulty. But they will surely appreciate the hospitableness of Tahkar, in the northern part of Satuma. This picturesque little town is famous for its great hospitality and the large number of hotels it harbors. In order to entice as many customers as possible, the innkeepers here spare no effort to outdo each other with colorful signs and delicious food, making it a welcoming place for our weary adventurers to rest.
