Making updates does take time, but uhm... patience is a virtue! Much has happened since the last update, but the next one will not be quite as far away, I promise. Now, on to the news! As you can see above, Meldrath the Malignant has fallen before us, opening up the end zone of the expansion, Crystallos. More on that next time, first a tour of the Mansion...

Shortly after beating Breakneck and Krond, our secret team of gnomish scientists figured out how the Brinda Sprockets event works, letting us concentrate our efforts on the next event:

...which we quickly found did not actually require that much effort, as Seneschal Bargangle Tinkerson fell that same night.

Next up, Meldrath made us put on our best dancing shoes to beat his Prototype in the Battle Room, and we rose to the challenge!

Finally, Meldrath himself awaited - though we first had to go through his pet dog, various undeads, four resurrected Mansion bosses and a lot of steamsuits of course. The rest is now history as we started gathering flags to begin raiding Crystallos...

In the meantime, we started exploring the new expansion, Seeds of Destruction. What we found in our time travels were a couple of events that seemed to be just right for us:

The Blackburrow gnolls were up to no good even back in those days, though to Stop the Ascension was a little more difficult than anything Fippy Darkpaw ever threw at us.

Next up, Antonius Bayle asked 118 118 for some pest control after they found Queen Malarian hiding underneath the site where he wanted to build a new shopping mall. Who you gonna call? That's right, Ancient Dominion.
