New Sisterhood enemies

The operation versus Caldaria is picking up speed.

High House Sima has received much needed reinforcements from some of the other houses.

More importantly, the three Orders have also expressed their interest in Caldaria.

The Mercantile Guild in particular has sent envoys to the independent Entrussar villages in search of allies and merchandize.

Sisterhood stikes back

Both Rhalley and Syrran enemies place great emphasis on their female troopers. The Sisterhood are out there to prove no one outdoes them when it comes to cat fights.

New enemies: Rhalley and Syrran

House Sima has done it again!

With the help of their patrons from House Oshiro, they've expanded the patrol grid, effectively doubling the number of patrol locations.

It is not like they had much of a choice. The Sima-led campaign invasion has been threatened on both flanks by new enemies.

The first reports about the new enemies came through on December 21. It's probably not a coincidence, since it's the Winter Solstice (and the shortest day of the year).

High House Sima has finally launched the Caldarian offensive!

The good news is you are no longer limited to patrols and skirmishes. Now you can beat Caldarians as many times and as often as you like.

The bad news? Caldarian heavy infantry are not that easy to beat!

The mission rewards are more than worth it. There are 14 missions to go through and each mission brings new loot including superior armor upgrades.

That is doubly true for uncommon and rare missions. With the latter, you are practically guaranteed to get excellent loot. Read more »

Halloween mount: Felsteed

"Trick or treat" has been gaining traction with Riftforge's mount trainers.

It is a modern take on the more traditional, carrot-and-stick approach, when it comes to breaking in wild mounts.

Yet, when it comes to the felsteed and the nightmare, no training has managed to put a dent in their obstinate, undead nature.

The docile Cerberus mount, their close relative, has proven its value a thousand-fold in the hands of the elite Grenadier battalions. Still, the Halloween mounts stay true to their infernal nature regardless of punishments and rewards. Read more »

It has been a year, since we pledged our support for Apple devices.

(It's also an year since Apple's founder Steve Job's death.)

We are happy to report that we've just tested Riftforge on the new retina iPad. All battles are now playable on the iPad.

One thing we've noticed is that the new retina display doesn't render the artwork at 100% but scales it up. Pixel art usually gets distorted when displayed in any resolution other than native. However, in this case, it looks pretty nice and at least on the new snow maps, the troops pop with excellent clarity. Read more »
