RIFT news » PRIME: Exodus of the Storm Queen
All the sigils point to the certainty, for those with the skill to see the cold truth – Crucia’s time is nigh!
If you listen at the shutters, closed against the chill, you might overhear the plotters, the supporters of the ice queen. You might even hear that the very leader of the Icewatch, the Scriptkeeper, Chekaroth is working to enable her escape… except that had you overheard this, you’d soon lie cold and lifeless, your body abandoned on the lake. Better you keep your secrets.
All according to plan
Though Crucia lies bound beneath Iron Pine Peak, her icy tomb – cracked with the sundering of the Ward – cannot contain her powers over mind and thought.
She converses with emissaries and ambassadors through the voices of her captors and converts alike. From Watchman to magister to courtesan to king, she reaches into the affairs of the Ascended, using Guardians and Defiant as cogs to hasten her release.
Her machinations are accelerating: First, she unmade the Blood Storm, turning Maelforge against his own just when victory over Telara seemed assured. Next, she inspired the escapes of her trapped brethren so that they might stand – and be slain – in turn. Now, she sets into motion a plan to remake the fabric of the planes and loose her armies on all who oppose her dominion.
The Storm is nigh
Crucia’s minions whisper that time runs as thin as late ice, and that only one path remains. All should embrace her call, and heed her summons to the Gate…
Chekaroth returns to the Chancel of Labors to complete his betrayal of the Ice Watch.
Will you be there to bear witness and challenge the Exodus of the Storm Queen?
Winter arrives September 27…
