Hollow Eve Festival 436/Teasers
The Ocean Is Stirring...
It is a rare sight few have seen. Where only moments before there had been an endless expanse of blue on blue, an unbroken horizon where sea and sky touched without land or life of any kind to disrupt the view, now bubbling and frothing as if the seas themselves were expelling a breath held within their hidden depths for too long.
Domed towers are the first to pierce the churning water, the sun's reflection glaring from mirror-like glass panes lining their parapets as they rise slowly above the seas. Decorative coral clusters of countless colors cling to the rising sandy structures. Revealed are gardens of glowing fan worms and tube worms, spiraling sea cabbages, so much life unknown and indescribable by we who walk the lands of Elanthia. It has been placed, grown, and shaped perfectly over hundreds of years -- all rising, climbing, reaching higher and higher into the sky as cerulean waterfalls cascade from balconies and buildings of all shapes and sizes. A city, a palace, risen and revealed, sitting atop winding roads dotted with smaller but no less vibrant structures and landscapes.
Andreshlew. Living home of the Merelew. It has been more than half a century since its sandy beaches last welcomed the unwebbed feet of outsiders. But you have not been invited to feast. You are summoned, requested to meet with their representatives.
Will you answer their call?
Hollow Eve Begins On Sunday, November 1st!

Andreshlew Is Calling!
Our last sight of the Massive Metal Arachnid was a vision of smoke pouring as it leapt off the cliffs and into the ocean. We were glad to be rid of the danger, and it didn't occur to anyone that what was no longer our problem became a major issue for someone else.
Our allies, the Merelew, have been polluted by the remains of the metal contraption and in their efforts to keep their piece of our world clean, there has been some shifting within their society.
Andreshlew has seen some political changes as a result! Six prominent factions have risen in power, each with their own ideas about how to best clean up the island and serve its people. While they each have their own views, they all have the shared goal of bettering Andreshlew.
The Depth Shapers, the Inverted Crucible, the Trickling Sun, the Red Fan Traders, and the Supplicants of the Tide are all, separately and collectively, asking for our help. Meanwhile, the Gillborn Loyalists believe it a breach of the trust of their people to allow land-dwellers, outsiders, onto their island to meddle in their affairs.
Adventurers would be advised to keep an eye out for the dangerous Loyalists, but you can support *one* of the remaining factions –- be aware that lending support for one faction reduces your efforts to support all others! [Note that adventurers cannot support the Gillborn Loyalists!]
Hollow Eve is here again, and some things have changed! We'll no longer be visiting the Spider and all of the shops held within, but instead, will be riding the dolphins out to Andreshlew. There will be shops, events, and live merchants all month long for you to enjoy! Grab your Kronars and come check it out!
Some of the games you've played in previous years will return, and some Merelew games will be open too!
And of course, there are dozens of shops new and old fully stocked with awesome items for you to peruse! Check out the shop list to see if your favorites will be there. The Sleeping Dragon Corn Maze will be open in its usual place near Arthe Dale. Tickets go on sale starting Friday, November 6th!
The Hollow Eve Festivities Begin This Sunday, November 1st!
