Frogster, the publisher of Runes of Magic has just revealed details about the fourth region called the Ystra-Highland. It has a downright wintery scenario and is quite pleasant to the eye and also packed with things to do.
It received its name "Ystra" from the Minotaurs who live in this area. Besides the bitter cold climate, it is these furious and belligerent creatures and the Ice Fairies with their cruel elegance that impress visitors the most. To defend against both races and to safeguard the free and secure passage on Khazor's Mountain Road, the Order of the Dark Glory positioned a formidable army here.
Even though magical teleportation has dampened the importance of this place for transit, the number of people who travel through here has not diminished. In part this can be explained by the many legends and myths entwined within this region with its enormous skeletons on the Sea of Snow, the ancient texts from the Tower of Wailing Winds, the secret treasures of the Cyclops and many other arcane mysteries.
