For Immediate Release

Seattle, Washington - February 27, 2014 –  Forged Chaos LLC is pleased to announce that on February 26, 2014 the “Light the Forge” campaign –  a fundraising campaign designed to help produce a technical demo of Trials of Ascension and a successful promotional video for a future Kickstarter campaign – has reached its $20,000 goal.

Anyone who donated while the campaign was between $19,000 and $20,000 will receive extra treasury storage limits for all characters on their account. In addition to these rewards, all who have donated during the Light the Forge campaign (up to the $20,000 goal), will receive an in-game grab bag, as well as their T.O.Egg Statue upgraded from copper to silver. New items were also unlocked in the Light the Forge store.

As part of the $20,000 goal reward, anyone who donated to the Light the Forge campaign, had their names placed into a random drawing for a chance to name a region of TerVarus, the continent of Trials of Ascension!

Forged Chaos LLC also drew an additional five winners. The first two winners received the opportunity to join the development team in a pre-alpha network demo that is currently in development. While the remaining three winners received a Writ of Time (5) pack (when Trials of Ascension launches.) Each Writ of Time is an in-game item that can be redeemed for one month of subscription to the game or can be traded within the game.
