Return to Shadowfall

The Empress Strikes Back!

Together, Good and Evil form the Alliance, but as Chaos continues its attack on Lore, it does not move fast enough for Empress Gravelyn! She has grown tired of waiting for King Alteon to order the attack on Chaos. Tonight, she summons you to Shadowfall to test your loyalty. Will you serve Evil and help the Empress save Lore from Chaos... and then rule it? Or will you remain steadfastly Good?

You'll need to adventure all over Lore, fulfilling the tasks General Tibias and General Cynari set you in Gravelyn's name. Journey all throughout Shadowfall and then to Yokai, Poisonforest, Lair, and Swordhaven!

Your Choice is Final!

At the end of the first cutscene, you will need to choose between Good and Evil... and you cannot change your mind once it has been made! The quests you go on, the cutscenes you watch, and the rewards shop you unlock are all based on the choice you make tonight. Think hard, Hero, because you are deciding how you will interact with Empress Gravelyn for the rest of this storyline!

WHAT THE?!?!?! Story Questions!

It's already been asked by a lot of you guys, so here are some answers to your release questions:

  • This does NOT take place after Doomwood. Gravelyn has not learned what you do in Doomwood Part II. (So don't tell her!)
  • Stealing candy, betraying villagers, and undeadifying puppies is mean. But you're Evil, so it works out well.
  • To slay the Shadow Munchers, head down the hall to your left. They're in the room with the Shadowy Beings.
  • Join Poisonforest to slay the bandits.
  • ANY monster with Chaos or Chaorrupted in its name will drop the Chaos Gems to get the Chaos Slayer armor!
  • If you do not see the Chaos Slayer quest available, that will be fixed on Monday.
  • YES, your choice is final. IF you choose to ally with Empress Gravelyn, for the remainder of this storyline, you're Evil. It works the same way for Good/Alteon, too.
