Prepare to Cross Over
The Mirror Realm is Calling You Back.
Many of you were not here for the 2010 AQW Birthday Event, hosted by Paul and Storm with special musical guest Jonathan Coulton (which was amazing).
You can read a little bit about the fun we had HERE and you will also be able to re-watch the cutscenes from the event in the new Mirror Realm event starting TOMORROW! Before you cross over to the crazy backwards town of Battleoff (where Aria is a butcher, Warlic is a dim-witted scientist and Alina is a short-tempered poison mistress... and a blonde) there are some things that you need to know.
In this strange reflection of our own existence Drakath is gathering the Lords of Order to help him fight the powerful darkness sweeping across the land. Gravelyn The Good leads the Lightscythe army from her palace in Brightfall, while evil King Alteon the Imbalanced threatens to destroy everything with the crushing force of his undead army.
Crossing over to the Mirror Realm (or them coming here) takes an enormous amount of power and whatever crosses has to trade places with its reflection, unless you come from OUTSIDE the Multiverse (like Paul & Storm, the interdimensional bards) or you are you.
You are very special. For an unknown reason there is no reflection of you so crossing over takes much less energy. Unfortunately this has tipped the scales of dimensional balance and as you have grown in power, the imbalance has become greater and greater.
In such cases the multiverse can heal itself by removing the problem and erasing you from ever having existed in space-time. Your good friend, Drakath (the one from the other side) has not forgotten what you did for him and his friends on your last visit and will stop at nothing to help you find some way to balance your existence in his universe... but what could possibly balance out the vast effects that you've had in your own reality?
Find out, tomorrow!
