Trivia

Roger "Rall" Oldroar Tribute

Roger "Rall" Oldroar was excited for the release of this game but sadly passed away before the game's release. After receiving letters about him from his guildmates, the developers decided to pay tribute to him by the addition of a historian who talks about Tribune Rall Oldroar. The warrior was wise beyond his years and never lost in battle. "He retired to teaching at fahrars, and eventually passed into the Mists with a honored soldier's salute."
