The Wonders of Elanthia

From the Crown of the Colossus in Wehnimer's Landing to the Chamber of the Dead in Pinefar, and the hidden shrines of Lunule Wealde, extraordinary places lay hidden across the reaches of Elanith, but so few receive the attention they truly deserve. Scholars from all over Elanith have come together to showcase sites of wonder and magic as they unravel the mysteries and secrets, and share the forgotten lore that surrounds them.

Wonders of Elanthia will take you to all of the places that you forgot you knew as scholars regale you with history, expose hidden treasures, and leave you a little bit wiser about your world.

Tours and Services

Each of our scholars will guide you through their favorite Elanthian niche.  Hear historical tales, legends, and anecdotes, and see the many details that make up the spectacle of Elanthia!  In celebration of this worldwide event, select travelers will receive the opportunity for very special services.  Afterwards, some of our scholars will offer additional services for the crowd.  While you’re there, do not forget to collect the complimentary souvenir from each location!

Our experts are eager to impart their knowledge to as many travelers as possible.  To that effect, they wish their schedule to be known.  Please plan to meet at the designated location a few minutes early so as not to miss the start of the festivities.  Each event is expected to last 2-3 hours, and fees for the services will be posted at the event location.  One event will be held in Mist Harbor as a special treat for those that visit the Isle of Four Winds.

Scholars will give additional information regarding their skills and materials of choice at the time of service.

Raffles and Shopping

A small cottage has been built in a central location, with magical portals around the lands.  In this cottage you will find special prizes being raffled.  Each raffle is considered a major prize; therefore if you win one, you will not be eligible for the others.  Special services obtained at the scheduled events will not affect raffle wins.  Please see your ticket for drawing time.

A special map of Elanthia was commissioned for this event to serve as an ornate holder for the event’s souvenirs.  If you missed getting yours at no charge at the events, you may purchase them here.  Also for sale is a custom case, designed to hold the many beautiful items representative of our event locations.  The case offers a special surprise when each of its compartments is filled.  Be sure to pick one up, for nothing of its kind has been seen before!

Notes on Special Services

Our scholars have the tremendous privilege of offering some rare services to a few lucky travelers.  While the special services are limited in availability, others present at the event will be offered different services to enhance their experience, as time permits.  Since some areas are rather out of the way, runners will be available to make the trek to the nearest bank (cost for services will be posted at each event).  More details will be given at the time of service as is appropriate.

OOC CLARIFICATION: The following services will be limited in release.  Therefore, if you obtain one of these special services, you will be ineligible for another during the Wonders of Elanthia event.  UNLIMITED release services do not apply to this rule.  Any additional services offered after the special services (as listed in the schedule) will be "as time permits."

Traveling Information

In cooperation with the captain of the Glaesen Star, the town of Kharam Dzu has graciously agreed to increase the frequency of runs between Teras Isle and Wehnimer’s Landing for the duration of this festival.  Schedules will be posted at the docks as usual.  There will be no training restrictions for boarding the Star during this time.

With the promise of increased overall income, the Chronomages have promised a 50% discount on inter-realm travel for the duration of this event.  Further trips within short periods of time will be charged at the usual cost.

Please be aware that some locations may involve more skill than others to reach.  Travelers should be prepared for the inherent dangers of the lands, as well.
