As winter approaches Amia, life continues throughout towns and cities. The growing season of agriculture draws to its end as farmers relieve themselves of all tension from their hard work. The general population wrap themselves warmly in their homes and light their fireplaces. Families toast merrily in remembrance and nostalgia of a long year, hoping for the best outcome, that their past efforts have paid off for the next year. A natural state of Nightal some would say. However, the year hasn't ended just yet.

News spreads of a growing snowstorm at the Skullcrag Mountains. The militia of Guldorand warns adventurers to tread there carefully.

// An event begins on the 5/12, 9 PM GMT.

Lightning strikes thrice just atop the Crystal Spire, west of the Skull Crag Peaks. Following that came the roaring sound of thunder. The snowstorm continues to stir heavily and rocks begin to fall tumble down the rocky mountain tops! The citizens of Guldorand were warned to stay indoors. The temperature had dropped. The wind howled aggressively as the snowstorm continued. After those hours of turbulence, in which a group of mix-and-matched adventurers have returned, a new traveler has taken temporary residence at the inn. Her name was Ellena Redseal, garbed in blue and turquoise hues. Hearsay suggests that the bizarre weather and misfortunes may unravel for the mountain town.

A more and more familiar face visited each major settlement on the island with information regarding the incident. He would attempt to bring it to whoever is in charge, or at the very least the Captain of their Guard. Cordor, Bendir Dale, Kohlingen, Wharftown, the Grove, and a brief conversation with Kampo and the Crouching Lemur Monastery.

The Coldest of Winters


Amians, I give warning that this winter may yet be the coldest one yet. Near the peak of the Skullcrags by Guldorand, a small party of adventurers and I went to investigate a strange occurrence, where we discovered a portal being opened from the Para-Elemental Plane of Ice. Venturing forth, we fought with many constructs made of ice before discovering a Frost Mage from Neverwinter named Ellena Redseal who claims that Cryonax is attempting to bridge the Para-Elemental Plane of Ice with our own Prime Material Plane. We were able to stop the intrusion that caused the first storm, but I fear this is only the beginning. Any information regarding Cryonax or a Great White Wyrm named Albrathanilar should be shared as we plan a defense against this planar threat.

I urge you to prepare your peoples for intense cold, but do not overextend your reach for the forests' lumber or hides.

Heavy snow falls and begins to settle near the mountain town of Guldorand. A snowstorm slowly picks up once again at the Skull Crags, this time at the 'Upper Mountain' region. Other than that, nothing appears out of the ordinary in the meantime...

// An event begins on the 6/12, 9 PM GMT.

Whilst Guldorand and the Skullcrag Mountains have experienced drastic weather changes, such as turbulent winds and heavy snowfall, average temperatures have dropped all over across Amia. Even more so than the usual month of the year...

Against a winter that seems almost literally demonic, the commoners and non-magic folk have little they can do to stave off the worst of its effects. All-powerful mages and living avatars of the gods could barely catch so much as a shiver, but not everyone is beholden to such arcane protections. And yet, there is a difference to be made in spite of this.

A lithe half-elven scout makes her way to Arwen and Aluvard's, commissioning as many outfits of sturdy, reinforced wool as she can. While there, she also grabs a few cloaks in 'extra-long' sizes to act as makeshift blankets. She drops by Cordor Central to make sure the beggar there knows the situation, dressing him up in some of the hearty attire and offering him some advice to help survive the chill.

Afterwards, she ventures to Cordor South. When snow alights on the ground and the desperate seek shelter, there are only a few likely places to go, and the Hospice seems to her to be the least equipped for a flood of cold but uninjured people. Therefore, she drops by to provide them a ready supply of outfits and blankets for the needy.

Even the temple of Ilmater earns a quick stop on her 'tour', although given their access to a literal deity, this is less to fill their cabinets and more to make sure they understand the situation. She makes sure to close the windows on the way out, to keep the chill at bay.

She's last seen making her way to the vicinity of Kampo's, but it's pretty clear she'll make herself known again if the situation worsens, when and where the commonfolk are absent the sight of the kings and mages who make the world turn on edge.

Quite a sight as the beggar often lingering around central Cordor was wrapped in reinforced wool. The hospice and the temple workers were grateful of the kind donation made by Montana, and the fair institutions would make use of them for their occupants during this harsh winter. As snow begins to fall across the island, some have experienced ice elementals arriving at their homes. It starts with heavy snow, a thick mist, and sleet forming on the ground... The wind continues to howl, foreshadowing the worst to come. The frost mage Allena Redseal residing at Guldorand has recently attracted the attention of adventurers and commoners alike, offering insight and advice where she could.

As Winter's Wrath grew day by day, Guldorand would suffer the most from the weather. Snowstorms continue to brew from the Crystal Spike, Skull Crags. On one particular day, a heavy and deep-freeze mist settles into the mountain town. Several of the citizens find themselves covered in sleet, frozen-statues, though alive as the mist through their nostrils suggest. Tales from the residents would tell of some brave adventurers who brought them into the inn to melt and warm up during the blizzard, as well as bravely venturing the peaks. However, there was no longer any sight of the frostmage Ellena Redseal within the walls...

The number of guard patrols and shifts would drop this winter at Guldorand. Most have decided to spend most of their days within their homes until there was an assurance the current weather would end. Even so, there was a brief period of respite as only snow fell and the winds remained calm.

As the weather only gets worse and worse, Jacob decided to offer his help at Wharftown. As the town has seen snow falling the last days, and the temperature everyday seems to be lower than before, he offers his help to any that would ask... and even to those that doesn't. As he offers to magically ward against the harsh element to those working at the docks or just to anyone who spends most of their time in the opens.
Should the guards of the town need any more assistance, he would collaborate with them.

The weather has taken a drastic turn! Residents of Amia could feel strong gales like none other than before the past month, and all spectators by coastal regions of the island would watch the sea currents pour forth onto the surface in heavier waves before receding. Luckily there were no damages in docks of Amia's town's and cities. Meanwhile, the snowfall continued on some days.

// Running an event on the Thursday 3rd, 9 PM GMT!

Three letters were sent to Kohlingen and one, surprisingly, to Shrine of Eilistraeen from Winya Ravana. As time to act was forthcoming, a meeting was to be called.

Winter continues without a drastic turn of weather change. Whether it snowed or not, all appeared to be as natural as it should be. Ellena would stop by one last time at the mountain time, saying her farewells before travelling to Cordor. Should anyone ask her whereabouts, they would say 'Neverwinter', to live a simpler life. The residents of Guldorand returned to their duties, preparing for a new year. No portals opened at the Skull Crag mountains and the local inhabitants came out of their hiding holes. Cyronax's forces were no longer to be seen.

People of Amia,

Let it be known that the vile Arcomental, Cryonax, the self-proclaimed Prince of all evil para-elementals of Ice, recently threatened the balance between the Material Plane, and the Places of Air and Water. Set in his ways, Cryonax, in his impulse, sought to freeze the movement of Water and Air, to ensure the entire world in ice, to harvest the powers of Air and Water for his dark purposes - to spread his domain of ice and eternal winter.

A heartless entity he is, who would force us all into slavery and bondage, lacking any integrity or solidarity with others. In his dire promise to expand his province, he called upon his evil subjects to bring upheaval and discord, raising beacons to weaken resistance between the Planes and to carry out his foul treason against the balance. Setting his legions of evil para-elementals against our beloved homes, he used these beacons to breach portals between the Para-elemental Plane of Ice and our own world, bent on turning Amia and its surroundings into a permanent outpost of ice and snow.

So adverse an event could not be tolerated, and so brave and resourceful men and women rallied to thwart Cryonax's plans. With the purity of Elemental Water and Air threatened, the Material plane was struck by his evil intent, and Cryonax, in his arrogance, was assured of his success. His plans, however, have been decisively thwarted, and in collective measure, we thank these courageous and stalwart individuals for their unerring support for our cause:

Aerith
Ania Viranirn
Almare
Arkam Brightwood
Clobberknocker
Le'mon Zau'ana
Lyelanna
Mai'ethil
Niss'assa Kenlyl
Kieler Almstedt
Ruce
Ryrik Follenstein
Sali Aphaeleon
Sylveera Guststride
Tal'afay Tinnerai
Wilfire Strongfeet

These individuals valiantly kept taking a stance against Cryonax's desires, time and time again, and never faltered in the ultimate goal of defending and securing Ellena Redseal, whose actions ensured Guldorand's safety until she herself fell into the claws of the enemy. Joining forces to remove this evil, they set aside their differences and not only managed to secure Ellena Redseal from the enemy alive, but also destroyed the construct by the border of the Para-elemental Plane of Ice and the Material Plane.

To them, and to all parties attending this stance in defence, we extend our sincere gratitude, and hope their heroic actions in unity will be remembered.
