The Chronicles of Spellborn

Citadel of Ail screenshots released for your scrutiny.

The Hague, 2008/12/18: Spellborn NV, developer of the MMORPG The Chronicles of Spellborn®, releases today new Screenshots about one of the instances of the game: The Citadel of Ail.

Located in the former lush Green District of Quarterstone, the building was the main Rune University, but was also used for experimental research on the various effects of magic and minerals.

Although certain parts of these experiments were conducted in total secrecy, everything was later exposed during what was called the Arcane Surge in 994 AC (After Collapse).

The Arcane Surge was a blast of rogue magic that shot forth from the Citadel of Ail and destroyed everything in its path killing hundreds. But it was the aftermath that proved even more deadly. The explosion deposited Arcane Infused Ore Residue – also known as AIOR – all over Green District, causing the first signs of the Tempest Disease to emerge.

Adventurers of The Chronicles of Spellborn® will be able to venture forth in the Citadel ruins and try to discover what precisely happened.

The instance is designed to accommodate a group of four players of Fame Level 30.

To illustrate the Citadel of Ail, the developer, Spellborn®, releases today screenshots of the interior of the Instance, showcasing its AIOR infected inhabitants, the Shunned, which can be found on the official website of The Chronicles of Spellborn®,id157,patch_1_0_1_screenshots_citadel_ail.html

In addition, an extra lore and gameplay article featuring exclusive artworks and sketches was released yesterday, shedding more light on the background history of the Citadel and on the encounters and bosses that are awaiting the players.

The article and its artworks can be found at the following address on The Chronicles of Spellborn® official site:,120,citadel_ail.html
