Arachnophobia: Into The Darkest Of Shadows

Ancient whisperings tell of a mortal mage whose pride was no match against the envy of those controlling the Echo. Twisted and transformed for the pursuit of magnificence, a great and terrible abomination now lurks within the shadow.

Desperate to share its suffering with all who seek to follow magic’s path, the Shadow Weaver quietly plans, tirelessly. Only by finding true light in the dark can we hope to illuminate the tangled webs hidden in the darkest of shadows.

The Arachne Weaver, a dark and malevolent spirit of old has cast its many eyes upon our world. It's up to mages of both Academies to put an end to the certain destruction this tormented spirit will wreck upon us all.

The ‘Arachnophobia’ campaign will begin Monday, September 26 at approximately 11:00 AM PDT and will run for one full week. Individual rewards will be provided to top contributors at the end of each round and total energy gains can be tracked on the leader board.

We will be rewarding the first mage who obtains one of the new Arachne Sigils from Banishing an Arachne Weaver from the time the Arachnophobia campaign begins, with an official Shadow Cities T-shirt, customizable iPhone 4 skin and an exclusive interview highlighting the experience published on our blog. The announcement of who actually earned the first Archane Sigil and the interview will be posted after the campaign ends.

The latest update, 'Shadow Weavers Anguish' has brought about many unique changes to Shadow Cities, such as battlegroup wide buffs, and a new shared reward system, where all players participating in a spirit's banishment will share reward. The full details of the update can be found here.
