GuildMag Issue 10: Frozen Tales

Join us on an expedition through the Shiverpeaks, the land of snow and siege. Together we’ll visit magical places throughout this icy realm, and delve deep into its lore, stories and creativeness that have been shared by those that claim it as their homeland. Whether you’re an avid lore guru or just a casual bypasser, we invite you to explore these lands together.

This issue has been designed as your ultimate guide to the Shiverpeaks. Our first article explores the length and breadth of the snow-covered mountains, with useful links to the rest of our articles for those short on time and looking for a reference point for future reading. The rest of the issue is packed with everything from the history of the Priory and explanations of the various Shiverpeaks religions; to tales of an icy dragon far up north, and the culture of the land’s inhabitants. As per usual, we’ve also got a tonne of fan-made creations to share, including art, fiction and even music covers! And as if that wasn’t enough, in preparation for the culmination of the current Living World story arc, we’ve summarised everything that’s happened leading up to this very moment in-game.
