DA Contest, Redemption, and Other Updates

April 14, 2013 in Dark Ages News by Jaicen

Announcement: DAWorld.org Site Registrations is re-opened. Join now to view additional content! 

The Temuairian Travel Agent Contest!
“In recent Deochs there have been fewer Aislings assisting me and as such I have found myself in a conundrum! Without the Dark Things such as those items brought to me by fragile chrysalis, I am afraid I can no longer continue my studies of the dark arts. Therefore, I am calling upon all Aislings to compete to become the first Temuairian Travel Agent. Send out your pigeons, scrolls, and arcane magics through the veil of the dream world to reach the fragile chrysalis in the lands beyond — so that they might awaken themselves here in Temuair! You will be handsomely rewarded for your troubles, I assure you…”  – Dar, Mileth’s Dark Magic Master

03.29.13 – Spring Events & Redemption

April 1, 2013 in Dark Ages News by Jaicen

Update:
Just fixed a javascript bug with our anti-spam plugin that would trigger a false positive alarm on Norton Anti-Virus and McAfee. Sorry for the scare, april fools? :)

Spring Floppy Event

There have been rumors of a giant creature on the outskirts of Mileth. Aingeal heard it from the beggar, Teague, in the Mileth Tavern a few suns ago; however, I wouldn’t trust anything coming from that old run-down drunkard.
Some of the farmers, though, are becoming concerned about their crops; this creature is said to be able to devour entire fields in the matter of moments!
I’m not going to get all caught up in it, but you may want to see what he has to say. Teague does have a tendency to be right about these things.

Riona
Mileth Innkeeper

((This event will also start on March 29th and last until April 12th. Registered players only.))

Redemption
Three summers ago, Aislings gave worship to one of three deities during the Eulogy ritual. Three unique Eulogies were held: One by the Grimlok of Pravat to Adranuch, their Lady of Gold. One by the Kobolds of Astrid to Arpina, their All-Mother. And one by the Mukul of Mehadi to their Goddess of the Sun-heart. Just over a moon from now, the Evening Star of Hesperos will align with the smile of Danaan, the sun. The keepers of each worship site have begun preparations to hold the Redemption ritual during the alignment. History shows us that a gentle Aisling may worship along side the same species that they did during the Eulogy ritual, provided that the Aisling has not slain one of their race and is devote. The priests of these races seek an artifact bestowed on Aisling-kind during the Eulogy. If given willingly, these rare items will be empowered with the ability to combine together with two unlike its own during the upcoming Adoration ritual. The priests rely on Aislings to repel any dubhaimid or Anaman interference.

Kalliope
Bard of Undine
((The Redemption Ritual will start on April 12th and last until April 24th. When performing the Redemption, the item you received from the Eulogy will be exchanged for an item for the Adoration.))
