November 2022



By now the floodgates have been opened and Test Realm is online! Speak with Maulwurf von Trap to find out what is going on with the Spiral! A mysterious shard has appeared over Catmandu, a region in the world of Mooshu, let’s see how we, the Wizards, can help!

Arc Four continues! The World Synthesizer in Lemuria was destroyed and then, almost immediately, strange shards appeared over several worlds of the Spiral, connected to each other through magical gates. Together, they form Novus: a new world, a bizarre world, a gift to the peoples of the Spiral, a gift from… Something. The Wizard must reach this place, explore it, master new forms of magic, and navigate the complex politics of the Spiral’s Empires to preserve Novus from those who would corrupt it.

Novus has been forming! Something strange is hovering over worlds we know, and some we have yet to explore. The Wizard is always right where they need to be, let’s see if they can help!

Adam Roush is our Senior Concept Artist here at KingsIsle Entertainment. Sometimes Adam will create a series of concept art for a particular scene or character and post them on his social media. Here are a few concepts of his most recent pieces this month:

“Here's the Shadow Webling pet from the Spiral Villains Hoard pack. Just a cute little spider pet. :)” - Adam Roush

“Here's the Cerberus Master gearset. This was really really fun, easily one of my favorites to have designed this year. I especially like the backpack. :D” - Adam Roush

"Here's the Cerberus Master Weapon from the Cerberus Master Pack. It's a mix of dog chew toys." - Adam Roush
