Silkroad: Design a Fellow

Players of the legacy title aren’t being left out of the fun either!  Designs will also be accepted for a new Silkroad Fellow to be showcased in Silkroad Online.  Players will be challenged to ensure their designs fall within specific rules, such as being focused on either attack or defense.  Once all the submissions have been received from the Silkroad Online forums and the official Facebook, players will have the opportunity to vote for their new companions.  Three lucky winners’ designs will be given to the Silkroad team and turned into a real Fellow inside the game for all players to enjoy, and winners will receive their design as a special thank you gift.

Travelling across Jangan, from China to Constantinople, players can make their fortunes as merchants, prey on the rich as thieves, or be protection-for-hire as hunters.
