Remember that DD Online Store service BioWare announced? Well, RPG Vault has taken a look at one of the modules that will be made availible when the store launches, Shadowguard. here's their preview.
The setting and story are both rather nicely developed, especially within the naturally limited confines of a module. You play as the child of Okaris, the Magistrate of the imperial city of Ghaarak, which lies along the disputed northern frontier of the Sharakhan Empire. While studying at its Imperial Academy, from which you are about to graduate, you have somehow attracted the interest of the titular group, and you'll soon be drawn into mysterious circumstances involving some of its agents. Shadowguard makes use of an interesting ration-based rest system. It also features new music, and comes with a re-mastered version of Bartel's Witch's Wake 1.Hang on... you start in an academy? Again? I'm not trying to nitpick here, but geez.
