Forgiveness (Winter Comes)
New Cruxshadows 2015 Holiday Song!
I just saw Rogue (Lead singer of the Cruxshadows) tweet that they released a special holiday song. Every year our games do new special holiday events… but I never heard of a band doing it before. Apparently it is their 3rd year releasing an original song to pay tribute to the season. This year’s new song, Forgiveness (Winter Comes), is forlorn and beautiful. I will not ruin the songs meaning for you, but it is definitely my favorite of the three. I secretly slipped it into my home’s holiday music selection-- I am eagerly awaiting Trinni’s reaction when she goes, “Wait… what is this?” She will probably instinctively ask if it is Voltaire. Then I will explain, “No, no! It is the Cruxshadows.” followed by how this counts as official Holiday music and if she can have hers on the play list I should be allowed a few slots too. I mean, how many times can one man listen to that song about the guy trying to convince a girl to stay “...because it’s cold outside.”?
The new song and all of the previous ones are available now on the Cruxshadows Website for a single donation of your choosing. Most of their fans give $5. Crazy mega fans go much higher to show their support.
P.S. I was honored that the Cruxshadows appeared in our Anniversary event this year. If you did not know, we met the band and watched them perform many years at DragonCon. They agreed to do the event on short notice, with no compensation, on only a handshake-- just because they thought we were nice people and liked the creative things we are doing. So, when I saw the tweet I personally donated $25 and downloaded a copy of all the holiday songs, then I wrote this post for you to help spread the word. The song is called Forgiveness, but I am celebrating Gratitude. If you enjoy their style, and enjoyed the event, this is a nice way to give a little thanks to them directly.

Tis the season for... ADVENTURE
Frostval is finally here friends! ...and you know what that means? Presents! New adventures! DOOOOOM? An infamous super villain has just returned to destroy the spirit of Frostval. Will you draw your weapon and open your spellbook to save this magical season? (What if we told you that your presents were at stake?) To make this adventure unique, you must choose whether to be naughty…. or nice… on your quests. Different “Good” and “Evil” options will present themselves as you help save Frostval from a very, very, very naughty not-so-little boy.
Showing the spirit of Frostval.... literally!
New Quibble Items
Everyone’s favorite traveling sales moglin is in Battleon—and he’s staying put until the new year! He’s got 3 new RARE lunar eclipse-themed weapons in addition to his 27 Frostval goodies. No one knows if Quibble’s items will ever return, so make sure you get his gifts while you can!
Holly Knight? ... where is the Silent Knight?
Gifts in Battleon!
It looks like Santy Claws came early this year! Members: get your 5 wrapped presents from the giant red bag in Battleon! These presents will magically open at the start of the new year… including a CLASS. That’s right—not an armor, but an actual Class! The Frostval seasonal shop has also made its way to town, loaded with 2010 Frostval Seasonal Rares!
Make sure to talk to that little adorable purple Moglin in Battleon too. That’s Tinsel and she has 2 quests you can go on to get 3 additional presents! These too will open at the start of the new year.
Gingerbread House and new House Items
Get your very own seasonal rare Gingerbread house in Blizzy's House Shop after you have saved Frostval! He…she… well I don’t exactly know what gender Blizzy is… but Blizzy also has a few festive house items to decorate your humble abode with.
Don’t forget that there are seven new houses in the Centaur 21 Realty shop, too. Visit Penny the Centaur by joining the buyhouse map. Here is your chance to upgrade your current home to the Skyguard Cruiser, the Volcanic Cave, the Cloister Tree House, and more!
