Run for the hills! Dragons
have been spotted in southwestern Mythador, unleashing a power greater than a hundred ogres on those daring enough to approach their volcanic territory!
The Realm of Sssilistra is dragon territory. Its landscape is the stuff of childhood fantasies, though few ever set foot in that wild and powerful place. Amidst the blackened trees, fires spew from the volcanoes, which rumble ever angrily. Once every few decades, an elf is drawn to this violent land, hearing a music so raw and intense it cannot be ignored. Not many return, but one who did is the elf named Allios, a nhoblio older than most trees. It is from his rambling accounts that most knowledge of Sssilistra has been gleaned.
While these the dragons and dwarfs will not playable factions upon Dawn of Fantasyís initial release, their lands can be visited by the most daring of armies, offering plenty of loot and experience for those who step foot in Sssilistra and a chance to steal from the legendary dwarven gold deposits in Dunn Erghast. The Elves of Nhobíru, ancient enemies of the Dwarfs, tend to stay away from the mines, making their way to Sssilistra where their mighty magic can help drown out dragon fire, severely weakening the brutesí strength. The greedier Men of Teria and Orcs of Nhobíru, on the other hand, can often be seen clinging to the walls of the underground dwarven mines, but they all pay the price of their looted gold in blood.
In addition, Dwarf and Dragon units can be recruited as mercenaries to fight in your army. Select mercenary units can be recruited from the Dawn of Fantasy Booster Shop with Influence points, a rare resource that can be either purchased or received through Player versus Player combat and quest completion. The units vary in price, with the dwarven infantry and the small green dragon available to most built-up estates and the elite Royal Dragon available only to the greatest of empires, thanks to its hefty price. Mercenaries act like any other player-controlled units and can be grouped into World Map armies or left to defend your homeland, and can be levelled up through combat or healed at an ally NPC town.
Once on your side, these units will greatly increase the strength of your forces. With the introduction of dwarven gunpowder and dragon fire power, your enemies will be left scrambling and praying for a quick death as you walk right into their highest keep.
