Some time ago, in the middle of the Second Age, a great battle waged
between the lich Zaikkra of the Material Abyss and the peoples of Serin.
The lich Zaikkra was banished, and a dark time took hold of Serin, known as
the Mourning. Such devastation had not been seen in Serin for millennia, but
its people persevered.
Davairus, at the height of his power, began to rebuild Serin. Sethronu the
Frozen Hearted Warrior and his Fortress of Warlords were scorched in a sea
of flames, their faded banners and faded honor burned with them. He granted
immortality to the Herald Vanisse, so that her good fortune might spread
across the land. Vhrael, Commandant of the Seringale Watch earned a place
in the heavens by establishing order in the crumbling streets of Seringale.
Finally, Olyn, Valour's Hand of Light, was raised to immortality so that
Valour would be rebuilt around the three ideals now known as the Virtues -
Honor, Courage, and Respect. The Herald cabal was successfully reformed in
a peaceful manner, and Patrons and Nobles began to populate Serin, thus
beginning the New Dawn.
Today marks the anniversary of the New Dawn, and so the people remember and
the people celebrate, but they will never forget that dark times have come
before and may come yet again if they are not vigilant. During this day of
celebration and remembrance, players will receive double experience points,
similar to a surge. There will not be increased training or gold, except
during any regularly scheduled surge.

Every twelve Celestials, the moons align for a
unique renewal known as the Ether Renewal.
As Serin celebrates this beautiful occurrence,
adventurers will enjoy double experience gains.
Enjoy your double xp holiday!

Welcome one and all pinnacled persons of the Arcane inclination! Today
is your lucky day, or perhaps just a frustrating one depending on how well
you do! Regardless, you are all invited to run the Mystic Maze! Oh the fun
you will have! For some it will be a hair pulling, brain gnawing event that
tests your mental mettle! But fear not! For all who finished will be
rewarded with at minimum wisp essence! The top three will have reward
ranging from gold to a Custom Title for fastest of all!
Don't be the only one not to run the Mystic Maze! It will be the talk of
all of Serin! You may be able to tell others who have run it due to their
lack of hair, and or muttering and lack of motorskills.
*Disclaimer* The Heralds and Mystics hereby give notice that they hold no
responsibilities due to hair loss, brain eating, or general loss of sanity!

The Serin Race is baaaaack!
The Heralds will be hosting the Great Serin Race for all to join. For those
of you who don't know what The Great Serin Race is, it is a race and test of
wits. For to find where you must run to, you must answer riddles. To enter
the race, you only need to contact a Herald, they will sell you a ticket for
1000 gold coins which will go towards the Herald's coffers for prize money.
After you have your ticket, the Herald will start the race, allowing you to
run wild and follow the riddles to the markers. Once there, you will
receive a riddle on an item you must gather and turn in. You will then be
given a riddle to the next post.
1. No recalling. This is you going across Serin to test your wits and
2. No flying or riding on a steed, whether a Knights or a Dark-Knight's
3. No outside help, you may ask the Herald running it for a clue.
The Herald running your race will be able to give you three hints, but it
will add time to your run and delay your total time. Breaking of any rull
will result in your disqualification.
There will be prizes awarded to the first, second and third fastest in this
race. As well as a chance to win some Herald chips for just participating.
So, if you wish to try your luck and prove you're not only the fastest, but
wittiest Serin around take a chance and run The Great Serin Race.

Fellow adventurers and gamblers alike,
Please hoist your eyes to the Wicked Ale! A special game of tarot cards
will be held and there will be lots of refreshments. The ante is upped
as Fanatiel's roulette of death will come into play for players who might
pass their turn instead of guessing, or other insidious ways.
That's right! Players will be acting out their tarot cards without a word!
The ones guessing correctly win a point, and the first to three wins. There
will be different variations of the game, so do not fret. Rule sheets will
also be available to glance over whenever you want.
So come and join us, come and be apart of the Wicked Ale Winter Bamboozle!

Greetings people of Serin,
I, Libera, am here to present to you an event that will hopefully be fun.
This event is rather simple as it doesn't involve a lot of running and doing
stuff. All you have to do is send a note to Herald with what you feel is
the most creative way to cook or bake a gnome. The type of food is your
choice. The winner will be chosen by the Heralds and myself. The winner
will receive a prize of 50, 000 coins while the two runner ups will receive
receive a prize of 25, 000 coins. So, get to thinking and stir those
creative juices. The winner and the runner ups will also be featured in the
Mystique as well for all to enjoy their methods. There is no limit on
creativity, so please be as creative as imaginable.
Hope you all have fun.

You are cordially invited to join the Heralds in the first ever annual
Dragon Egg Round-Up. The Heralds have hidden eggs all over the
Western portion of Thera (nothing past the East Gate of Seringale).
Some of these eggs contain great prizes and some contain gold,
while others are filled with not so great things. Look hard and be
careful as you search. While I know some of you are expert explorers
please leave some eggs behind if you already have some so others can
find some as well.
Be sure to write a note to the Heralds stating what you found and where
you found it so we can reward you with a quest for joining our Dragon Hunt.
You can either smash the eggs when you find them or hold on to them as
souvenirs. There are also three Golden Eggs. These eggs are worth 25,000
gold and a special Herald Quest so instead of smashing those, bring them to
nearest Herald to receive your rewards.
Please let us know if you have any questions and happy hunting!
The only hint I will give you is to look in the places that you would
normally not find yourself in.

Greetings Therans of all ages,
I, Trompi, am proud to introduce to you a new event, Trivia of the
Miscellaneous. The event is quite simple. Once a renewal, or elven day in
older speech, there will be a riddle put on the Herald Board outside of
Mocker's Tavern. The riddle indicates a certain item in the realm that will
have some sort of effect. Your job, as participants, is to sent a note to
Herald with an answer and what the item does. If you speak to a Herald
directly the answer will not count. It must be submitted by a note.
The event will run for three renewals including today, in which at the end,
the winners will be awarded a prize and a Herald quest for winning the
Trivia. If one person happens to get two answers correct, the prize will
increase, but will still only be rewarded one Herald quest.
Good luck to you all, the answers and winners will be displayed in next

who finds it I will grant riches and a quest!
So please dear Therans help me find my pillow!

ol' recipe and send it in. Or if you feel inclined to, go out and create a
new recipe. Make it something unique, like Jellied Drow Fingers. The
recipe doesn't have to involve eating other mortals, but that's just
something to go out there.

Years have passed without with holiday of Stryth being observed, but some
of the underlings from the underworld have crawled up from their lowly
graves to celebrate. Come see them at nightfall in some of the Seringale
shops, anytime after the date of this event.
When these creatures are around, they will respond to 'Trick or Treat',
but be careful, their tricks are tricky and their treats...well you'll
have to discover that for yourself.
