It Is Time
Posted on 10/10/2008 04:29 PM CDT by Producer


When it began, it seemed harmless enough.  Was it just a case of dirty spectacles or out of focus telescopes?  The stars in the sky seemed different, but how?  Odd visions of starless skies and eerie feelings confirmed that indeed the stars were dimming.  Was it the work of the gods as the clerics proclaimed?  Or just some twist of fate beyond our understanding?
Zealous Clerics and crazed Moon Mages latched on to the dimming, finding reasons to espouse their once personal theories to the world.  The dimness spread and was soon noticeable to all of Elanthia.  Even the animals sensed the change and fear took over, stampeding from their homes, unsure of what was transpiring.  Elanthians, too, wondered aloud what to make of this strange phenomenon.  Some turned to astrologers, others to the clergy, and some chose to look within themselves to find their own answer to the mystery.
 

As they pondered the cause, the problem only grew worse.  The sky lit up with all shades of fiery reds and oranges, as flaming fragments hurtled towards Elanthia.  These burning rocks struck the ground, causing tremors that could be felt to the very core of the planet, as well as the core of their souls. Those unfortunate enough to be caught in their wake were left burned, battered, or even dead.  Fragments of these meteors have been found, some glowing, their origin still somewhat of a mystery, their purpose an even larger one. 
 
They have struck everywhere, from the deserts to the islands.  To make matters worse, undead seem drawn to them.  Waves of undead have followed some of the larger strikes.  Skeletons and zombies have been found carrying the fragments and now, the planets themselves have vanished from the sky.   Are these fragments pieces of our missing celestial bodies?  Have the gods forsaken us?  Is Elanthia doomed to disappear next? 
 
Throughout it all, while scholars have turned to magic and science, seemingly without answer, one message has been steady.  Those closest to the gods, those we trust to restore us to life and bless us, have preached a message; a message of respect, of trust, and of reverence.  The gods, need and deserve our faith and our love.  For too long have we merely paid token attention to them.  How many or us make them a daily part of our lives?  How many pay homage to the gods beyond the offering of a simple token when favor is sought?  It was the gods who created us and the gods who placed the heavens in the sky for us to ponder and aspire to.  We must not forget that

We must remember our place, as well as theirs, and gather together to celebrate all that They have given us. 

It is time for all of Elanthia to assemble and to
honor those to whom we owe so much. 


It is time for a Festival for the Gods!

Finally, and most importantly, every character who attends the festival* will also receive a fabulous, wondrous, and mysterious unique gift that has multiple special features and abilities!  These special items will allow their owners to truly show the gods they they have not been forgotten, while providing everlasting benefits to your character that are not to be missed!

Ticket prices start at $50 and are available in the Box Office for Prime, Plat, as well as The Fallen!

*Special Ticketing Information:
Due to the nature of the special gift items, tickets for this festival will be handled differently than ususal.  Base tickets will provide access to the first character on the account who passes through the Festival Gates, however, there are tiered tickets available to allow access to two, three, four, or ALL characters on the purchasing account.  These higher tiered tickets will allow multiple characters on the account to participate in the festivities, raffles, games, and special events, as well as allowing them to receive the special gift.
