We recently learned
of the dark prison city of Wheloon that Dungeons and Dragons Online
players will be entering when Shadowfell Conspiracy
releases this August. Turbine
sent us several new screenshots of the interior of Wheloon, showing us that the slammer isn't always the jovial, cheery place that the movies make it out to be.
Wheloon used to be a normal town, but when it became infested with Shar cultists, the King of Cormyr walled it off and turned it into a massive prison. As if it weren't already a place to actively avoid, the Shadowfell plane has opened up into Wheloon, inviting a bunch of nasty monsters to mix it up with hardened criminals. And yes, you'll be sent into the mix because that's what heroes do
. Well, that and start up internet petitions.
