VIA TOUCHARCADE
The game starts off thrusting you straight into the action as a soldier embroiled in battle with your enemies the Dark Elves. This opening sequence serves as a tutorial as you're introduced to movement, aiming, jumping and attack and defense moves. After taking on several groups of archers and swordsman with your AI buddies helping out at your side, you encounter a massive Troll who you must carefully defeat. Shortly thereafter, a huge explosion out of nowhere brings literally everyone around you to the ground, yourself included.

You awake to find yourself in bed with a fair maiden watching over you, not totally unlike the beginning of the original Ravensword. She tells you that during that great battle the strange explosion killed everybody there… except you. Everybody is curious as to why you were the only one spared, including yourself, and thus embarks your journey to find answers in Ravensword: Shadowlands.

From here, you're pointed in the direction of the local Guild Master who will start you off on a series of "main" story quest, and roaming around the town and talking with its inhabitants can net you some interesting side quests too. Eventually, you can leave the confines of the town walls and explore the vast world of Ravensword: Shadowlands, and it's been a delight for me to do so thus far.

I've put just a few hours into the newRavensword so far, completing several main quests and a couple of side quests, but it's still very obviously in an in-development state. The framerate can be erratic, though it never drops low enough to impact your playtime and when it does hit that glorious 60 frames mark it's truly stunning. Glitches, pop-in of long distance terrain, and a few rough bits of environment are present, and totally normal for an in-progress build. I imagine most of these issues will be ironed out before release. Ravensword: Shadowlands, despite its in-progress nature, is still very playable, and most importantly very fun so far. It's also beautiful, and should really be a showpiece for the platform when it releases.

I've been recording my adventures in Ravensword: Shadowlands, and cut down more than an hour of footage into this more-digestible 16 or so minutes. In it you can see me exploring the terrain and marveling at the giant "Dino Cows", traversing through one of the early towns and its beautiful scenery, visiting a camper in the forest, and having my tail handed to me by a group of goblins at their hideout. Of course, I go back and give them what for in a subsequent retry (and from the safety of higher ground). Finally, I visit one of the blacksmith shops in town and outfit the virtual representation of my bearded self with some extra weapons and armor. Enjoy!

Workshops are very important where people gather and gain knowledge and through that we can know several interesting things.

Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it.

Of course, these are not bad things. “Deep well of Kentucky nectar” makes its own case; and Bards town location in the epicenter of the Kentucky bourbon belt assures it a steady stream of tourists and the prosperity they provide
