2023: Chronos in Retrograde

Au'eir, the rogue Chronomancer, has approached the Hero to rectify a problem that threatens the flow of time. A lifeform known as the Retrograde Maw has been born, seeking to eliminate Chronomancers and erase any trace of their existence. It must be defeated to keep the timeline stable. /join timeretaliate to begin your adventure!

If you're impatient for 2023 to get here (like I am) take out your rage on the 2023 Ball monster as you wait for it to drop and ring in the new year. And while you wait... It's TIME to REAP the rewards of our New Year's release!

Plus, if you have the original Jolly Frostval Attire armor, Santa Hunk helm, or Santa Cutie helm, you can /join northlandlights and head to the daytime version of the map (made by Despera). Click on the gift box to start quests to dye your gear a festive forest green!
