Today’s Asura article comes from an update to the Asura race page on the official site, introducing some new wallpapers and an awesome tour video of Rata Sum, their home city. We also have another treat from VG24/7 with an interview with Ree Soesbee and Jeff Grubb talking a bit more about the Asura.
Browsing through the main page update I noticed a peculiar thing, when the Great Destroyer, a minion of the Elder Dragon Primordus awoke and started to wreak havoc, he used the Asura own technology, the Asura gates against them and it spread out its minions and drove the Asura upwards, out to the surface. What makes you great can also be your downfall.
Driven to the surface, they squatted in an ancient ruin and over time though sheer determination and resourcefulness, they built Rata Sum. Rata Sum is a giant floating city in the shape of a cube and it really reflects the ingenuity of the Asuran race.
