Release Title: Reversing the tides of Chaos
The mastermind of Chaos, Drakath, has started pulling the strings to his new puppet: US!
Threatened throug what we hold most dear to us, our friends, Drakath plans on making us his latest chaoslord. Without the hero to stop a chaoslord, he wins, and so far, all kinds of plans and schemes to get rid of the said hero had failed, except one: Drag him to our side. Already divided between good and evil, we must now work with chaos, while we think of how to end up this situation! And fast, because Chaos build up in our soul like a fungus over dead matter!!
The release will basically be a reverse chaoslord. We would unwillingly follow Drakath's order to become a Chaoslord from beggining to end. ChaosLordship 101. We fought against a chaosbeast? Now we fight to CREATE a chaosbeast. We fought against corruption? now we CORRUPT! Everything must be done carefully to become reversible...once we find a way to start reversing our own mess. And it seens Drakath has set the board to his disturbing game: the mirror real, where chaoslords do not exist. And where it's balance is most delicate due the fragile nature of mirrors.
Basically, we would make a short, reversed version of Mobius chaos saga, we would create chaos, turn mirror-Mobius into, roughly, what Escherion did in our world, fight the Hydra to tame it and make ou chaosbeast, and later, fight the chaos building into ourselves to cleanse everything we have done.
Map of choice: Mirror realm
Map Suggestion: /Mathemathicus* (a reverse of Mobius)
The idea is that making two places in the mirror realm and real world the same will cause an inbalance that cna shatter the area and cease it's existance.
*Art-wise, mathemathicus would be like mobius, but un-reversed...for now
Mirror Renn and Zio
NOTE: similar to that release where we switch with Death, during this release, the map would give us a temporary armor of chaoslord, just, something chaos-like to wear.
Guardian eye (reverse of chaos eye)
Guardian spirit (reverse of chaos imp)
Elf (the most opposite I can think of an Orc)
Sub-boss: Hydra (I think we could make a full-body Hydra this time, instead of just heads popping out of the water, but thats up to the artists's opinion)
Boss: Chaos self (a humanoid shape of chaotic energy with eyes blinking inside it's silhouette, the surrounding of this battlefield could be the guardian tower partially dragged into the chaosrealm)
Guardian eye: Guaridna eye pet
Elf: Elf armor and weapon
Hydra: Evolved version of the Hydra armor, helmet and a weapon of the artist's choice.
Boss drops: Prismatic Chaos armor and a matching set of cape, helmet and weapon.
-Chaos armor (non-temporary) and matching helmet, cape and staff.
-Mirror Escherion Helm
-Mirror Escherion armor
Link to book of lore's chaos shaper class. Feels like a good idea to remind ppl of the existance of this class that fits the release like a glove. A bonus to legendary players with more than 15 months of membership.
Mirror Drakath talking with Mirror Gravelyn, purple shade darkens everything and both NPCs scream. Pass to Hero, casually walking in Mobius, overseeing the reconstruction of the damage caused by the battle against chaos, when he suddently gets a message (could be a bottle leaping from the well and hitting him on the head).
"Dear <hero>, things are suspicious here in the mirror realm, we suspect Drakath (the Drakath from YOUR world) is up to foul plans once again, request your presence IMEDIATLY"
Before the hero completes the reading, he is dragged to the mirror realm (maybe a chaos tentacle from the well draggining him inside)
Hero spots a silhouette of Mirror Drakath, but finds out is OUR drakath. His plan is to make us a chaoslord, starting with chaorrupting the mirror Mobius, causing it to collapse with our mobius and cease both it's existances. His threat to convince us? He will do the same with the mirror version of our allies. He also throws a chaotic energy on us to give us power to corrupt.
Hero destroys the Chaos self, which will backslash and cause some inconvenient tingle in Drakath, like a connection of pain, and he will retreat, saying that this is not over, and chaos will always grow into the heart of the weak. We reply we are not weak, and Drakath finishes with "that we shall see" As Chaos starts to wither and die around Mathematicus.
We untie Mirror Drakath and Gravelyn and head back to our world, to make sure Mobius and Mathematicus suffer no more with any kind of interdimensional consequence.
Lets start, it "hero", As you remembered, Escherion was quite an ARTIST with Chaorruption, he easilly swarmed Mobius with Chaos eyes, Imps and orcs. I expect you no less. Go defeating those creatures and use parts of them as chaorruption seeds. Their eyeballs and auras must suffice. And one elvish rune to catalize the ritual.
Defeat 13 Guardian eyes and place their eyeballs in locations nearby their own.
Defeat 13 Guardian spirits and place their aura likewise.
Defeat 1 Elf and take(drop) a rune.
Drops: 13 eyeballs, 13 auras, 1 rune
You almost pleased me, but that is a start
"Fly, my eyes!"
Now stop looking at me like that and activate the corruption! Once you reach the circle with the Elvish rune, its all a matter of trying your new chaos withim to make everything around you withering in Chaos and Corruption!
"using the elvish rune..." you will create chaos infections where you placed the eyeballs and auras so the chaos eyes and chaos imps are bornt from where they are. This quest simply requires you to walk to the center of the city and click a runic circle that will appear on the floor, done.
Drops: 1 ritual started
MARVELOUS! You do have potential to be a chaoslord...if you were only willing to do it
"Inversions and Conversions"
It is all about location, location and location. We must estabilish the mark of our Chaos. Since we are mirroing Mobius, nothing more fitting than twist the very space around the city to make it inside out, just like Chaos is.
Each House in one of the rooms will have HP in their doors like a common monster. Defeat'em during this quest and they will become inverted (The artist is free to design this inversion or corruption, just need some hint Chaos is affecting that house)
Drops: 4 or 5 Houses twisted.
I gotta say, this place does look prettier this way...
Inverting the city is not enough! The citizens MUST feel themselves bent to your twisted will. Subdue all of them! make Chaos the very air they breathe!
Some citizens will have HP and will fight back. Defeat about 20 citizens to chaorrupt'em. 1 of the citizens will drop a book of Chaos.
Drops: 20 citizens corrupted and 1 book of chaos
Thats more like it...And you? feeling...unwell?
Hero having a slight emotional breakout as he doesn't have the guts to continue, Drakath points out to a vision of the real world, focusing in his allies, a reminding of what he can do. We glance at mirror Drakath nodding at us to move on and humor Drakath. We nod to Drakath (actually giving a message to mirror Drakath behind him) and move on, thinking that we will find a way to escape this situation, thinking about the book of Chaos we found. Feeling an unconfortable tingling from the Chaos inside us.
*written in the book* Chaos can be misteryous and elusive, hard to study due it's lack of physical manifestation in this realm, but magic must be studied, this Compendium shows safe ways to study chaos.
We enter an inversed house and have to Defeat 5 chaos eyes peeking at us. Once done, Click the book in a desk to learn how to fake chaosrruption, which can be easilly reversed. "the counterfeit Chaos is weak, but convincing, it can infect real chaos and drain it to look real, in the end, both real and fake chaos will whither and die as both loose energy to sustein themselves).
Drops: 5 "shut" eyes and 1 book studied
*inside the bool* Conceal no corrupt, thats an easy task if you fake chaos, which is enough to study it's nature and even fool the eyes of the most expert in the field of Chaos. However, it wont last long, and you need some real source of Chaos to keep the fake Chaos's heart beating!
Where have you been? No, nevermind, We have more improtant tasks to fulfill. Spread more chaos, I can't feel this place has enought of it!
Create fake chaorruptions to slowly drain the real chaorruption. By that, we must defeat 20 elfs to make'em fake chaos orcs
Drops: 20 "chaorrupted" elves
Very good, this chaos is perfect! Now we can move towards our plans to...bigger targets
unlike what you might think, Chaosbeasts don't grow on trees, unless you chaorrupt one, hahahaahaha! *ahem* We must tame or raise a beast, a powerful one, to turn into a Chaosbeast. The folk of Mathematicus are fascinated by the Hydra in the lake and it's unique ability to sprout heads in a mathematical fashion of multiplication. Boring, I know. Subdue it to our will and we shall have a chaosbeast!
Defeat the hydra that dwells in the lake of Mathematicus to turn it into a chaosbeast
Drops: 3 Bowing Hydras (refering to their heads)
Feel the chaos built withim you, with the taste of irony, "hero"
Once again, location, location, location. Do I have to say more? Get rid of the guardians in the tower and...Oh! It seens Mirror Escherion wants to defend his home, how cute. get rid of this buffoon!
Defeat 5 guardians in the Guardian Tower and the Mirror Escherion to render the tower defenseless and invert it with Chaos.
Drops: 5 fallen guardians and 1 fallen Escherion.
Now we are all set, prepare to become....huh? Where are you going? And why is the chaos whitering?
Hero suffers anotehr breakdown of Chaos shocking him from the inside, with a final burst of energy and a torn page of the Chaos book, the Hero manages to rip off the chaos energy inside, it manifests inbto physical form and we proceed to attack it
"Flipping the board"
Hey, mirror Drakath here! Quickly, you must defeat the chaos that built up inside your soul! Don't worry, it wont hurt, this chaos energy is not part of you, I can feel it! And I think Drakath will feel it too...
Defeat the Chaos that built up inside the hero to cleanse all Chaos in Mathematicus and start the withering of chaos as conterfeit Chaos empties all chaos around.
YOU DID IT! Drakath is furious, but he can't stay much long in the mirror world! He didn't tell ya that, but I can see him desappearing, back to his world. You too should "desappear".
"Here, There and Back again"
Glad to see you want to help and clean all this mess...er...you caused. Well, no hard feelings, you did well and acted noble. Just try not to hurt the victims of chaos when cleansing them, HERO.
Defeat Any enemy to cleanse the chaos inside'em. Do it 20 times to turn in
Drops: 20 cleansed victims
They will be hurting for a while, maybe dizzy, but I'm glad they will be themselves now and forever.
You might get one of these, randomly:
Mirror Renn armor
Mirror Zio armor
Chaos self morph armor
Mirror Escherion Staff
*requires rank 1 in Chaosshaper*
Aaah, I see you have a knack at taming Chaos, I wouldn't recomend dwelling in these dangerous arts, but for now, lets make use of it. Control the Chaos remaining in the soil to make an anti-chaos "infection", Slowly, t will creep throughout all of Mirror Lore, making it Chaos-repelant.
*an additional room will be avaible with Chaos eyes and imps inside*
Defeat 10 of the Chaos monsters to cleanse and spread the purification
Drops: 10 Chaos monster
Great! I can already feel the order shielding this place!
This quest offer the same rewards of the first legendary quest, but with a way higher drop rate. and Escherion staff will come with additional damage to chaos monsters as a Bonus.
I always wanted a reverse chaos release, we would know what is to be in the skin of chaos, and exploring further how costy it can be...
