Today marks the start of two eventful weeks for the players of the fantasy MMORPG Runes of Magic. Berlin-based publisher Frogster is holding a new competition with prizes worth over €10,000 for the winners.
The main prize is a bar of gold currently worth approximately
€9,000. The competition takes places between the 28th of July and the 11th of August across all European game servers. Whoever comes across an elusive gold bar, which can potentially be dropped by any monster, will automatically be placed in the running for the real gold bar or a range of other sought after prizes.
The competition begins today at 15:00 CEST (2pm UK) and ends on Thursday the 11th of August at 11:00 CEST (10am UK). During this period all monsters will drop a black bar when killed and once players have collected 50 of them, they can trade them with an NPC for an item package up to three times a day. Players can also rely on the support of another NPC who will supply them with Guild Runes and Guild Contribution Packages to help in expanding their guild castles. Those lucky enough to find the sought-after gold bars should keep hold of them until the end of the event at which time they will automatically be entered in the prize draw.
Up for grabs alongside the main prize of a real gold bar, are a silver bar worth approximately €600, several item packages; and a ROCCAT gaming set consisting of a mouse, keyboard and headset.
