First Look At Dauntless: The Coming Storm
This is The Coming Storm, Slayers. This is how you can expect Dauntless to grow and change in the coming months.
New challenges call for new tools. Slayers looking to down Behemoths at range will have access to Ostian Repeaters. Striking from range doesn’t equal safety though, and Slayers who pick up the repeaters will still need to get their hands dirty. As Koshai’s threat has grown more prominent, the usefulness of attacking from a distance – especially if you’re held in place by brambles and thorns – has become clear.
These handheld mechanical marvels come straight from the forges of Ostia and have benefited from their artisans’ love of tinkering. The result is a paired weapon with interchangeable parts, allowing Slayers to customize different aspects of their repeaters to suit their needs. The materials needed to create these weapons and the training required to wield them will challenge even devoted Slayers. But for those who give their time, passion, and archonite, there’s something truly lethal in store.
HAIL TO THE SOVEREIGN
Every Behemoth has the potential to devastate settlements, spread chaos across the frontier, and kill the Slayers pursuing it. Any Slayer worth their archonite knows that taking a hunt for granted is a recipe for a painful demise. But few Slayers have faced a foe who takes control of the battlefield like Koshai, the Sovereign of Thorns.
This new Behemoth emerges from beyond the frontier, riding a churning aetherstorm that pummels and tosses even the most stalwart airships. Ostia, a society renowned for its industrial accomplishments, resolved to take this beast down after it laid waste to their territory. But instead of coming back with glory, their hunting parties found only defeat and death.
