Saga Finale AND Birthday? WHY?!!?!?!
Good question! Artix wanted to have the 2 finale releases come one right after the other. We were planning to release them at the end of September, but once I heard what the finale plot was... I convinced him to make this our 8th birthday event, as well.
The birthday event will also hint at the darkness to come in future releases, unlike the one-off birthday events of the last few years. We've hinted at dark things happening in Swordhaven, in Darkovia, but really... the entire WORLD is battling the darkness and chaos that came with the release of the Queen of Monsters.
