The Bard’s Tale IV Kael’s Axe and Fire Horn:
The Fire Horn is a relic from long before the days of the Three Great Evils. It was the creations of the dwarven smiths of the Haernhold. Having also been commissioned by King Aildrek of the Baed. Making it for him a battle horn that would set aflame the ships of Gotten raiders. Also doing so before they could enter Skara Brae’s harbor. This was before Aildrek became known as the Witch King. So the dwarves did not yet know of his villainy. They were soon to learn.
Regarding the Fire Horn, this has been a long wait for me. A year ago, we did a backer survey asking about which returning weapons you most wanted to see. We didn’t list the Fire Horn, and easily our largest write-in answer was “FIRE HORN!!!” and variants thereof! Finally the Fire Horn is making a triumphant return!
Centuries before Mangar encircled Skara Brae in ice. The great bard Kael, one of the founders of the Adventurers Guild, had been given foresight of the city’s peril in a dream. Kael thought to kill the Dark One before he struck, so he commissioned from the elves an enchanted axe. Weapon in hand, he then sought Mangar’s tower, which manifested like a cancer in many realms throughout the ages.
Though the axe defeated all the enemies which Kael faced. It sadly could not protect him from the madness which seeped from the tower’s walls. While leaving him gibbering and lost before he was able to confront Mangar.
The launch of the website represents another milestone as inXile quickly approach the release of The Bard’s Tale IV: Barrows Deep. Which is also coming to Linux, Mac and Windows via Steam and GOG. We do have an official release date, September 18, 2018. But that demo though… what!?
