Christmas magic has been usurped by a dark force, stealing its energy
and using it for the darkest of deeds. Christmas magic is precious and
can only be used once a year; it’s the very fabric that enriches hearts
and souls for the entire year. It is needed to keep harmony within
Althea. If this most precious magic is used for evil tasks then the
world could turn dark... forever. The priests of Noel are the keepers of
the core, the mystical centre of Christmas magic; it is from this core
where Christmas magic is sent into the world. An ancient pine tree is
the access point of the core and it is from this where the invention of
the Christmas tree originated. The dark force has managed to cause a rift
within the tree, sending its energy to create powerful golems of snow
and ice… dark snowmen.
There will be a priest from the Noel order at your sanctuary waiting to
inform you of the troubles happening with Christmas magic. He will ask
to enlist your help and then send you off to his homeland, which at the
moment is a frozen wasteland. Your only chance to survive in such a
harsh environment is to acquire the coveted crest of ice; it’s a shield of
tremendous magical defences and you will need to obtain an enchanted
weapon; one so powerful it will destroy the dark snowmen… permanently.
You are tasked to help the order of Noel retrieve the stolen magical
energy, they will instruct you on forging an orb of Christmas magic –
that has the ability to absorb magical energy from slain dark snowmen.
Once you have collected enough energy from slain dark snowmen, you must
track down the dark force that is the root of all these problems. The
priests are now able to sense a location that was previously cloaked to
them, they will guide you there where you must destroy this unknown
enemy and in doing so you will save us all. You will be rewarded greatly
should you succeed. Should you fail… then we are doomed!
We wish you luck for the event and we hope you have an amazing Christmas!
