Shadowlord Finale Event Plan

Key Plot Lines:

Distracting Decisions

The Shadowlords mislead the people of Britannia to fight monsters and hunt treasure in Tokuno while they comb the world for their sought after Artifact. The monsters have the treasure, of course, because the Shadowlords are providing the distraction.

Strangers Bearing Gifts

Grey robed strangers appear at Empath Abbey, the Lycaeum, and Serpent’s Hold called “Seers.” Unlike the event manager versions, these NPCs foretell the future, and offer players a way to convert the Cloaks of Corruption into the Cloaks of Life, Death, or Power.

Cloaks of Command also become available in faction strongholds

Manifestations

Manifestations of the Shadowlords appear in Tokuno, searching for the Artifact after exhausting the other facets. They spawn at halfday intervals in three locations. Once dead, they drop Cloaks of Corruption to the top three attackers, and give ToT minor artifacts to all.

Dawn of Hope

Dawn returns to the land, vowing to save Britannia

Cloaks of Silence will be available from the EMs

Armageddon

The location of the Artifact is revealed. The Crimson Dragons are prepared for a great battle with the Platinums for dominion over Britannia, as the Shadowlords make their move. The outcome of this fight (which the players can assist in) will determine if the Chaos aligned factions (Shadowlords, Minax) receive benefits after the event arc, or whether Order does. This battle is the prelude to the finale.

The final battle with the Shadowlords. Rewards include three “Shards of the Gem of Immortality” (one per Shadowlord), and major artifacts.

  • Treasures of Tokuno, Minor Artifacts
  • Major Doom Artifacts
  • Cloak of Life
  • HP Bonus: 2
  • HP Regen: 1

Summoned monsters act the same as monsters/animals from the "Summon Creatures" command with the following details:
  • Requires one control slot
  • Cannot friend/unfriend or transfer
  • Summoning requires the same base requirements as the "Summon
  • Creatures" spell (mana/skill, chance of success), but doesn't consume reagents
  • The Ogre Lord's summoned version, however, is *much* weaker than its wild counterpart
An exceptionally rare item that responds to the user’s karma to play upon the fate in the worlds within
