Lord British might be about to be busy dunking himself in the ocean, but his castle in Shroud of the Avatar is going to be under attack as part of an upcoming adventure scene, which was previewed in the latest newsletter. The preview grants a whole lot of vanity shots of Lord British’s castle as well as offers a general blurb of just what players are going to have to face while in the location.
“Lord British’s Castle! Frequently under assault by those who want to slay the ruler of New Britannia or pillage the vast fortune rumored to exist within his private vault. Even now, deadly enemies have breached its walls and overrun the stronghold’s hallowed halls. Your reasons to venture to Mistrendur and into Lord British’s home will be your own, but know that each room will throw you against waves of the toughest enemies you have ever faced!”
According to the post, the difficulty of enemy waves will continue to grow until enemies are unable to be overcome. At which point, presumably, Lord British will arrive on the scene in a combat-capable deep sea diving suit to lay waste to everything (though that probably won’t happen, but now I bet you wish it would).
The adventure is due to arrive soon, but will only be available to those who have bought up episode 2 early access. What, you think castle upkeep is cheap? Silly you.
