The MOP Up: Runes of Magic gets a headstart on Thanksgiving


It’s still early in November, but Runes of Magic has already laid out a tasty spread for its Autumn Banquet in the game. Eat up, my friends! Gotta stretch that stomach for later events!

“Travelers that happen to pass by are also warmly welcomed to join the festivities,” Runewalker said. “Travelers that learned of the origins of this festival from the villagers spread the news of this inspirational event, letting more people know and giving them the opportunity to share in this lovely event.”

And this is just the beginning of the rest of the news! Read on for a roundup of other smaller MMO news stories and videos from this past week in this edition of The MOP Up (and if you don’t see a news story that we should have covered, drop us a tip)!
