    Welcome to the nexus of adventure, mayhem, and daring. The forests, dungeons, and shores of Britannia have seen flame, mangled burning flesh stacked to the waist around many adventurers, and valiant ships left as timbers hardly suitable to clean mutton from an incisor. These hallowed lands are also witness to the joy of unions pledged through eternity, and friendships bonded in fatigue ... savoring well-earned victory. If you are here, you have seen it all, mastered it easily, and still thirsting for more. Well here, let your eyes search no more, bring your skills and set your shoulders for what's to come. We bring to you the rest of the adventure, that which you have yet to see or master. Welcome to Britannia.

    Mad Mage: March 28th - March 29th

    Blackrock - the world's most valuable ore. Nearly impervious to the fires of forging and magics alike, yet a violent reagent in spells best forgotten - the bane of the Britannian government and its great hope. Entire cities have been wiped off the face of the map, and every rumor, every whisper points to this mysterious substance. It's been known to drive men mad and beasts wild. More than one infirmary houses raving lunatics, with their imaginary voices, and victims of vicious blackrock infected monsters.

    At last, one mage believes he's found a way to locate blackrock en masse, with a cunning artifice of machinery and arcane power. Even when his own fellows abandoned him and his work, Kronos found unexpected support in the government, eager to fund his work. He's worked his entire life just for a moment like this, and Moonglow will be forever remembered as the place where his legacy was born. His machine, aided by an ancient artifact and a sample of blackrock, will at last prove his theories... he knows it will.

    But more eyes are on this project than even the government knows. Beyond the benign alchemical research lies a darker power. Friendships will be tested, loyalties questioned, and a future forged by the actions of those who come and bear witness to this "Mad Mage."

    Could they be any more vague? Looks interesting though.
