There will be five companions to team up with in Spiders Studio's Bound by Flame that's due out next week. Here's a rundown of these characters ranging from a mage to an undead (their official descriptions in captions).
"Randval the warrior excels at hand-to-hand combat and will divert the attention of your opponents, leaving you free to attack safely and to cast your devastating fire spells!" "Sybil, the young mage, provides excellent long-distance back-up and uses a special skill that enables her to heal you during combat." "The witch, Edwen, has mastered certain hitherto unknown dark and mystical arts. She is able to devastate adversaries at long range with powerful magic spells, and can temporarily take control of an enemy's mind and turn it against their allies." "Rhelmar the elf is an expert in ranged combat and will rain arrows down on your enemies while you charge into the heat of the melee." "Last, but not least, Mathras is no ordinary undead... more ancient than the Ice Lords themselves, Mathras has perfected the art of swordsmanship and melee combat over the last several thousand years. Like Edwen, he can also reverse the allegiance of an opponent for a short period using his willpower alone!"
