Magic Thief Event This Friday!

Chaos in Your Veins... and in Lore's Magic!

Magic, malice, and mayhem... and Chaos! When a corrupted mage in the duchy of Wellmet gets Chaorrupted, the most powerful mages on Lore go missing, but no one knows why. Not until the stars of author Sarah Prineas' series The Magic Thief gets involved!*

Chaorrupt ALL the magic!

* Check out her website here!

Join Conn, Rowan, and the rest of The Magic Thief cast along with Cysero and Warlic as you journey to a new land to save the lifeblood of your home - Lore's magic! Rescue the missing mages and sever Pettivox's connection to the magic of Lore... or NO one will be able to use ANY magic again without being tainted by Chaos!

The Rysa are servants created from pure magic
combined with Pettivox's blood.

We are incredibly excited that she has allowed us to tell a whole new story set in Lore with the characters and land that so many of her fantasy-fanatical fans know and love! We've been in talks about this event since November, and work began in earnest this past January. Since then, I've read and re-read The Magic Thief in preparation for the event, and can't wait to begin the next books in the series!

No mage is safe from Pettivox and Drakath's plotting!

The magic of The Magic Thief universe is surprisingly similar to that of Lore, and so is the rest of its world. Populated by monsters, villains, and more than a few mages, Wellmet is a town where you will feel right at home! (Unless your home is in the slums of the Twilight. Then you'll probably want to move across the river.)

The Sunrise Palace it ain't, but the Twilight slums are
home to many of Wellmet's citizens.

In the Magic Thief event, you'll get a chance to learn about how magic in AQWorlds operates: ley lines, nexuses, and focus stones are all crucial if the mages of Lore are to guide and guard the home they love! Look for a new piece of information on Lore's magic each day until we reach Friday and the event kicks off with a magical BLAST of Chaorrupted insanity!

The Magic Thief Cast of Characters!

Meet the cast of The Magic Thief series and AQWorlds event! Thieves, mages, and nobility... they fit right in with the rest of the characters in Lore!

Street-thief turned mage

A talented thief… until he picked the wrong pocket! After attempting to rob the wizard Nevery of his locus magicalicus – what mages on Lore call a focus stone – Conn became his apprentice and began learning the ways of a wizard. Quick of wits and deft of hand, Conn’s past serves him well as he learns the ways of magic!

Wizard to the Duchess, Chaorrupted
Corrupt and Chaorrupted, the wizard Pettivox is not afraid to get his hands – or his locus magicalicus – dirty if it will bring him power. Drakath dupes him into kidnapping many of the most powerful mages on Lore in order to taint ALL magic with Chaos!

Conn’s friend, Duchess’ daughter
Smart, sassy, fiercely loyal and independent, Rowan is NOT going to sit and sew while dangers threaten her home and friends. A student at Wellmet’s Academy of Magic, she’s ready to use the resources at her disposal to help her friend Conn save the world!

Conn’s friend, servant to his teacher
More bodyguard than street-brawler, Benet is the servant of Conn’s teacher, Nevery. He knows his way around Wellmet and prefers baking biscuits to breaking heads. He’ll help you navigate the town when you first arrive… IF you don’t threaten those he protects.

Duchess Willa
Duchess of Wellmet, Rowan’s mother
Guardian of all who dwell in Wellment, Duchess Willa is strong and determined to safeguard her lands. She’s badly served by her court wizard, Pettivox, who cares more about power than protection. She is ready to help those who wish to keep her people and home safe from harm.

Magic on Lore: Lesson One**

Magic on Lore is contained in ley lines, which run across and through the planet like haphazardly-placed latitude and longitude lines. Where these ley lines intersect, there are nexuses of magic which act as reservoirs. There are two central ley lines: the Verix, running North-South, and the Horix, running East-West. To perform feats of magic, a mage must draw on the magic contained in one of Lore's ley lines or nexuses.

** All magic lessons will be placed in Arcangrove's magical tome after the event is over.
