Back when I was content lead at Spellborn Works, I created multiple ‘mood pieces’ to reflect upon the universe of “The Chronicles of Spellborn”.

This one was intended to convey the game mechanics of combat into Spellborn reality. Enjoy.

She jumped backwards out of the way and slapped her hand on one of the Crests adorning her armour.
