'Runes of Magic' Celebrates Halloween With In-Game Events

by Rainier on Oct. 21, 2009 @ 4:56 a.m. PDT

With an extensive range of features Runes of Magic prepares to redefine the standard of free-to-play MMO games. Even at the beginning Runes of Magic conveys its absorbing story in over 5,000 quests embedded in an atmospheric world.

Runes of Magic features a unique dual class system enabling players to combine one of eight primary classes with a secondary class. The result is a deep player experience that expands upon the game’s deep customization offering. There are two different playable races, Elves and Humans, from which players can choose. Each dual class combination produces its own powerful elite skills. Another popular feature is the opportunity to furnish your own completely individual virtual home, and guilds can construct guild castles, which can be expanded with additional buildings. Thanks to comprehensive crafting and reputation systems, gripping PvP features, deep customization and demanding dungeons, Runes of Magic has something for everyone.

Over the next two weeks, the publisher will be giving away Halloween-themed in-game items, holding real world and in-game decorating contests, running special events and selling special Halloween bundles.

“Halloween is an important holiday for most MMO games, but we really get into the holiday spirit at Frogster America,” said Jeremy Monroe, director of marketing and business development at Frogster America, Inc. “With a lot of different events, giveaways and contests for the community, we want our players to know that we appreciate their support and we’re constantly working to make the game better and more enjoyable for our users.”

Here are just some of the events that Frogster America has planned over the next two weeks:
