Event Information

War of the Wings
(2023-10-17 - 2023-10-22 - Site opens at 11:00 AM & Closes at 12:00 PM)

Welcome to the enchanting dance that unfolds amidst the interplay of light and darkness, where the spirits of saints and sinners intertwine in the mystical embrace of All Hallows’ Tide. Prepare to enter the realm of War of the Wings XVI. In a world veiled by twilight, where the line between righteousness and temptation blurs, the eve of All Hallows’ Tide emerges as a nexus of profound power. It is on this night that an ancient conflict awakens, as the souls of saints and sinners clash, each seeking dominion over the realms of the living and the dead. As the moon ascends its celestial throne, a symphony resonates, casting an ethereal glow upon the spectral plane. The radiant spirits of saints descend from the heavens, embodying divine grace, while the shadowed specters of sinners rise from their eternal abode, draped in echoes of remorse. Within this existential battle of morality, all beings find themselves entwined within the cosmic tapestry. Mortal souls, bearing both virtue and vice within their hearts, stand as pawns caught in the dichotomy of saints and sinners. Their choices and actions hold the key to restoring equilibrium and guiding the fate of the realms. Our Kingdom lies torn asunder as the illustrious monarchs of Atlantia become deeply embroiled in this epic struggle. Our beloved Queen Mary Isabelle has heeded the call of darkness, turning to the sinners in her earnest attempts to save them, persuading all to join her cause. Meanwhile, His Majesty Ragnarr, adorned with grace and wisdom, seeks refuge among the Saints, striving to bring Mary Isabelle back to the light and safeguarding her from the unfolding conflict. Which side will you choose?
