eVENT sTAGES
stage 1
The Radiant queen has granted mobilization orders to all empires.
Years ago, the Radiant queen sent out ships to explore further, looking for new lands and if there were any, new life that exists within these lands. It took some time for new lands to be discovered, but with the first of her ships returning word of not only new lands, but new life, she has put out an order for all those seeking new lands to go forth and assist or explore. 
What she didn't expect, was not one, but two new lands. 

Players will be exploring two new lands: The Floating Isles and the Sunken Realm. Both of these new worlds have unique challenges and within them their own lore. 
The Floating Isles is a land of islands that are suspended into the air by magic. Rivers flow off of them and many cities stake claim to various different islands. Some islands are taken by nature. They range in size from massive to smaller, but almost always you can see floating islands in the background. This is a land of rich landscapes and while here, even the most flightless find that they can simply, float between islands. It is almost as if gravity can turn off with the power of thought and will for yourself alone.
The underwater depths are a network of oceans with the entrance being the sinkhole in the ocean. These locations are all imbued with a magic so strong that you can breathe within these areas. The magic lingers, allowing you to escape the ocean, and even enter it, safely without fear of drowning. Much like the Aether, a lot of the light here is from bioluminescent plants and animals, and it can be easy to get lost.
TIME FRAME: 4 mONTHS

Stage 2 unlock conditions: This stage features special lore books which can be obtained throughout the event. Each lore book will unlock for the community as a whole. Once all books are unlocked the second stage will unlock, or, the second stage will unlock on February 15th, 2024. Whichever condition appears first.

Diving to the deepest reaches of an endless Abyss 

As magic swirls around you, you find yourself able to breath and sustain even the most crushing depths. Is this the magic that the Rayfins have held secret for so long, and is it something you could tap into and harness for other purposes? You find yourself able to swim into the depths of an abyss, and much like the world hidden within the Veil, you find yourself surrounded by bioluminescent lights dotting the ocean. Only enough light for you to find your way. The tide seems to pull you deeper and deeper, until you see it: a brilliant glittering portal tucked away within the seaweed. Massive enough to make the largest Warden dragons look small, massive enough for ancient Rayfins to easily pass through. Encrusted within rock and plants, you make your way to the portal. 


Depict your character as they navigate this treacherous landscape. Do they hesitate to enter the portal, or wander off under the protection of the Rayfin magic to explore the darker reaches. Beware, Aemon has been sighted in the area.

Depict your character exploring the sunken depths and this new underwater world. They can searching the oceans for pretty much anything, or interacting with other Rayfins, dragons, etc. There is ultimatley no wrong way to depict this prompt!

Soaring into the expansive sky full of islands

As the storm recedes, you see the fruit of the journey you have made. Dozens of ships and soaring dragons make it to the land uncovered by the storm. Magic is electric here and you feel something sinister in the air. The storm is ominous, a dark omen. 

Ships pull into port, a sprawling city atop a landmass that rest on the water, looking as if it is floating in place, and not fully attached to the depths of the ocean. Something magical seems to hold it in place. Those who are magically inclined feel a huge surge of energy, here they are strong and full of life. You see many take off into the air, and as your gaze lifts to follow them you see the true nature of the magic around you. 

Floating islands of various sizes and shapes held aloft in the air, teeming with life. Your quick eyes scan the area and you begin to notice the creatures gliding from one area to the next - their faces ending in pointed beaks, the front half of birds and hind ends of animals. Their enormous wings carried them easily across the expansive space. Without a second thought, you begin your search, this new land yours to explore. 


Depict your character as they arrive at the floating isles. What do they explore first, the bustling cities? The water surrounding the island that floats along the water never moving from its position, or the untouched islands where the storm no longer rages? As you try to peer deeper into the storm ravaged islands, you think you see bright purple eyes stare back at you. Perhaps a trick of the light? 

Depict your character as they encounter different things in the floating isles. This can range from exploring different islands, caves, rivers, cities, etc. You can show your character interacting with Gryphus species or with other dragons exploring the isles. This is a free form prompt and the sky is the limit to what you show!

 
stage 2
As you have explored, your meddling has been noticed. 
The aemon have spotted you and your efforts - they do not take kindly to those who would interfere in their plans. Chaos has ensued as the elders of the rayfins and gryphons have emerged to fight you off and defeat you. 
It is up to you to rescue these elders, save them from their corruption and help those who are in danger! 
1 OSAS gem is earned per starter cleansed. A starter is cleansed when a prompt is submitted for them. There is no combat in this stage. Submit to the OSAS Gem collection prompt to obtain your gems once your prompt is approved.

Nothing is Untouchable

 

Toggle Spoiler

As the days have passed since you arrived to these new lands you have explored the surroundings, found hidden places and discovered things you have never seen before. Perhaps even had your own adventures. But it is not over yet. As You continue your journey today you stumble across other creatures. Some you have never seen before either. They look like the creatures you have already spotted but you notice something about these is different. Signs of corruption are written all over their bodied, some are aggressive and disoriented, others seem in trance. The corruption that has plagued your home has spread here to these seemingly untouched spaces in time. Your findings of lore have discovered that these people are just as ravaged by the ailments that you suffered. The elders that exist in this world are corrupted.

Depict your character as they they try to heal the corrupted gryphons and rayfins! Do you fight them into submission or use your magic? Perhaps you gather the ingrediens and brew them a potion? Maybe bringing loved ones to try to aid them - if they are not too far gone! 

**NO COMBAT WILL OCCUR IN THIS STAGE! One OSAS fragment is awarded per Starter "cleansed" (one prompt = cleansed!). There is no pass or fail objective.

Damage Control

 

Toggle Spoiler

The corrupted elders have descended, seems your presence has become known and the hive mind that is the aemon have sent down the corrupted to stop you. While some choose to fight - others choose to help. Citizens young and old are either choosing to fight back, or fleeing. This leaves many hurt and vulnerable! 

Depict your character as they aid the citizens of the floating isles and the chasm. Perhaps you are healing fighters, or helping others escape? 

This Prompt does not award any points towards defeating the corrupted rayfin and gryphons.
