                                              The Great White Dragon

A small novel page dashes into the Queens throne room.

"I saw it, your Majesty! The Great White Dragon." He pants for a few moments as if sucking in a breath for the first time since his encounter.

"Slow down my boy, what did you see?" The Queen asks in a cautious tone.

"The Great White Dragon! It was exactly like the stories Pa used to tell before before bedtime." The boys eyes glaze over remembering the oft told story.

Up north in the snowy mountains, lived an old white dragon. The townspeople had named the dragon Eisdrake. 200 years ago, Eisdrake woke up and ravaged Novel Kingdom and several others nearby. Men were found huddled under blankets in the stables to stave off the chill. One poor woman was found frozen solid, a page of the book she was reading half turned, frozen forever.

The townspeople rallied and pulled together their strongest magiks to fight the dragon. Fireball magik to melt her ice. Earth magik to ground her wings. Air magik to make the winds fierce.

Eisdrake was driven back to the mountains, wounded and unable to return. The battle was so fierce that it drained the lands of magik. Slowly the knowledge of the magik was lost to time and Eisdrake become but a legend in the minds of men.


The Queen looks at the boy with concern showing in her eyes. She turns to her knight captain and quietly says, "send runners to verify." Queen Skye then turns to her audience and announces, "there's no need to panic, but we shall start gathering supplies so we are prepared if the worst should occur."

She requests the following total supplies:
- 20 swords
- 20 shields
- 20 armors
- 20 rations
- 50 reinforcements

All Quests are repeatable until supplies have been gathered by the heroes. A hero may repeat a particular quest 4 days after completing it before. Report gathered supplies to your fellow heroes here.

Moderators of NBRC | 28481 comments Restore the Magik

The small novel page named Erik and his best friend and fellow page Thomas are taking much needed break after hauling all the supplies the townspeople gathered to the staging area.

Erik climbs up on top of the largest box, spreading his hands wide to keep his balance as he walks along the edge. Thomas laughs as he watches him.

"Let's go visit the caves! They won't need us for awhile." Thomas shouts up to Erik.

Erik agrees and they slip away and head up the grassy hills. After a short trek they come to the plot hole caverns named after the late Mister Plotteus. The boys climb inside to search for hidden gems. Suddenly Thomas hears a rumble and a shout. "Erik!" he screams as he sees Erik fall out of sight as a huge area of the cavern gives way.

After the dust settles, Thomas peers into the hole and hears a distant "I'm ok" yell from Erik. Thomas slowly makes his way down the new embankment. Halfway down the slope, Thomas trips on a rock and slides down the hill in an avalanche of tiny stones.

Erik reaches out a hand to help Thomas to his feet and they peer around. A large ornate stone statue appears before them with a single white stone set in the center of a dragon's head. Erik slowly reaches out a hand and pokes the stone. The floor begins to rumble again and the boys yell out in fright. The dragon statue slides back into the wall exposing a small box with a book inside.

Thomas reaches out and takes the book and wipes away the dust on the cover. He gasps in surprise. Along the top of the book in large script lettering is the word Magik .

Erik turns to Thomas and excitedly says "we must get this to the Queen right away!"

The boys carefully climb up the slope then rush back to town and present the book to Queen Skye. Her adviser, Fred the Magician, rushes to take the book then caresses it gently in his arms. "Oh what a wonderful discovery," he says as if talking to the book himself. The Queen thanks the boys for their service and asks Fred to investigate what might be done with a book of such unique interest.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
One Week Later
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Fred rushes into the Queens dining hall and excitedly starts talking. "It contains the spells needed to bring Magik back into the kingdom! All we need to do is execute each of the spells to release the elemental ethers back into the world." The Queen agrees this would be a good idea given the dragon situation and enlists the townpeople to help gather the supplies.

General Rules
• These quests are only active during The Great White Dragon Event Part 2.
• Quests may still be done and monsters may still be killed after the necessary parts are gathered (but the special part will not be useful.)
• Duplication effects (whether by potion, item or mercenary) do not affect event items turned into Fred (e.g. essences, etc.)
• Quests may be repeated by a hero however:
      • If a hero has completed a particular quest once,
            they must wait one week to repeat that quest.
      • If a hero has completed a particular quest twice,
            they must wait two weeks to repeat the quest again.
      • Three times -> three weeks, and so forth.
• Increasing wait times do not affect monsters. They maintain their own consistent timing.

Restore Fire Ether
Timed Event Monster (1 Weekly during The Great White Dragon Event Part 2)
Fire Elemental - The Fire Elemental is a small little flame. With so many years with Eisdrake in power, the flames have become small and weak, barely more than a flicker. Collecting their essence destroys the elemental but you hope that it is for a greater good.
5 attack 5 HP

Reward: 2 Experience, 1 Fire Essence.

Firehawk
(view spoiler)

The System is a Bit Buggy
(view spoiler)

Fred requests the following to unlock the Fire Ether:
• 50 Fire Essences
• 20 Captured Flames
• 20 Fire Bugs




Restore Earth Ether
Timed Event Monster (1 Weekly during The Great White Dragon Event Part 2)
Earth Elemental - The Earth Elemental is subdued sort of magik. Slowly creeping along, barely moving until BAM! It whacks you with an earthquake style boom.
5 attack 20 HP (Every third attack is 15 attack power)

Reward: 3 Experience, 1 Earth Essence.

Between a Rock
(view spoiler)

The Hard Place
(view spoiler)

Fred requests the following to unlock the Earth Ether:
• 50 Earth Essences
• 20 Rocks
• 20 Hard Places




Restore Water Ether
Timed Event Monster (1 Weekly during The Great White Dragon Event Part 2)
Water Elemental - The Water Elemental has grown strong in the rule of Eisdrake. Eisdrake has been in power so long that the Water Elementals have turned partially to ice and can throw spears of icy magik in the direction of those who think to drink their juicy goodness.
20 attack 40 HP

Reward: 4 Experience, 1 Water Essence, 1 Potion Token.

Water is 60% of Life
(view spoiler)

Animal, Mineral or Vegetable
(view spoiler)

Fred requests the following to unlock the Water Ether:
• 50 Water Essences
• 20 Water of Life
• 20 Goblets of Spring Water




Restore Wind Ether
Timed Event Monster (1 Weekly during The Great White Dragon Event Part 2)
Wind Elemental - The Wind Elemental can be blamed every time you go to put on a hat and *whoosh* it's blown off again, or every time you rake up leaves and *whoosh* they're all over the lawn. This elemental is the trickster of the bunch, the class clown as it were. You hate clowns. You're definitely going to enjoy taking out these little buggers.
15 attack 10 HP

Reward: 3 Experience, 1 Wind Essence, 1 Acorn.

Let's go Fly a Kite
(view spoiler)

Up, Up and Away!
(view spoiler)

Fred requests the following to unlock the Wind Ether:

• 20 Balloons




Restore Life Ether
Timed Event Monster (1 Weekly during The Great White Dragon Event Part 2)
Life Elemental - The Life Elemental is a tiny fragment of soul left over when someone (or something) departs from our world. They flicker around and cause havoc in the lives of those still living when given a chance. Frankly, they're somewhat like ghosts, just more circley.
15 attack 15 HP

Reward: 4 Experience, 1 Life Essence, 1 Minor Heal Potion.

Get Thee To a Snuggery
(view spoiler)

And From Words Bring Forth Life
(view spoiler)

Fred requests the following to unlock the Life Ether:
• 50 Life Essences
• 20 Comforts of Home
• 20 Manifestations of Life

Moderators of NBRC | 28481 comments Learn the Magik
Fred the Magician is gleeful at the spread of ingredients before him. He mixes one part life with 3 parts comfort. He pauses, eyeing the mixture.

BOOM! Everyone hits the floor! Fred peers warily over the counter. His hair is askew and slightly singed. "I think that might have been too comfortable," he murmurs.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Three Days Later
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A weary Fred wanders into the throne room. Queen Skye looks up quickly and motions him forward. "What do you have for us Fred?"

Fred holds up the book. The word Magik glows on the cover pulsing faintly.

"I have unlocked the magik, your Majesty. Magik is once again alive in Novel Kingdom."

A huge collective gasp is heard from the others in attendance. "Can it be true?" one man cries out. A woman off to the side faints in a dead heap.

"Yes, yes, it's perfectly true," replies Fred. "Though, I must caution you, my Queen. We must train our knights in how to use the magik. For now it reigns free, untamed by any soul."

"See that it is done. I shall send my best heroes into your care. Train them well dear Fred."

Queen Skye stares into the sky as people file from the room. She whispers quietly to herself, "we don't have much time."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Notice
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
WARNING heroes of Novel Kingdom! The Great White Dragon has been sighted flying towards the kingdom. It is estimated that we have 2 months before Eisdrake arrives. Prepare!

Moderators of NBRC | 28481 comments General Rules
• These quests start during The Great White Dragon Event Part 3 but are available after for heroes needing to learn magik.

Spells
Spells may be cast instead of a physical attack. Casting the spell will use up the casting materials.

Certain monsters are susceptible to certain types of spells. If no notation is given, the base attack of the spell takes affect. Otherwise, the modifier for any specific type of spell will be listed.

Typically:
- Water is strong against Fire
- Fire is strong against Earth
- Earth is strong against Air
- Air is strong against Water
- Life is strong against Death
- Death is strong against Life

Additional modifiers may exist for specific creatures.

Example: (not a real creature)
Skeleton - An undead creature brought back to life by the great Necromancer.
10 Attack 30 HP - Modifiers: Life magik hits for double. Death magik is negated fully.

Firebolt
(view spoiler)

Tremor
(view spoiler)

Whirlwind
(view spoiler)

Note: All heroes will be able to participate in the Great White Dragon battle. Being trained in one or more spells will assist in your ability to fight the dragon but not having spells will not be a barrier to participation.

Visit July's update to find your supplies.

Moderators of NBRC | 28481 comments The Dragon Sighted
Erik hops off the north tower and sprints back into town and into Queen Skye's chamber. Everyone in the room freezes and stares at the small boy.

"I saw it! The Great White Dragon is heading right towards us!"

The Queen immediately starts shouting orders to the room. She instructs the staff to start handing out supplies to the knights. Fred heads off to brief the knights on magik usage during the battle.

Here's your chance to be part of Novel Kingdom History! Are you brave enough?

Every hero will receive a supply package upon entering their first battle with Eisdrake.

Supply Package
- 3 Potion Tokens
- 3 Major Heal Potions
- 2 Mercenary Coupons


message 8: by Moderators of NBRC, Sinner's Gatekeeper (last edited Sep 06, 2016 10:05PM) (new)

Moderators of NBRC | 28481 comments The Battle
This battle will require the efforts of everyone in Novel Kingdom. Unlike normal battles, the Great White Dragon can be battled in parts.

You may engage in battle at any point when your health is above 0. You may drop to 0 health during the battle however, as soon as that occurs you are knocked out and must remain out of any battles for the next 3 days. You may also disengage from the dragon early with no penalty. Leaving the battle or being knocked out does not count as an end of battle for items that provide benefits for that, it does reset any growing benefits as the turn count will return to 1.

Eisdrake - The Great White Dragon.

20 Attack 20,000 Health - Last health count remains for the next attacker.

Spell Effects
Earth Magik - Roots Eisdrake in place for one round to freeze an attack. May only be used once per day per hero.
Fire Magik - Increases the next hit (next turn) by 20% attack power.
Air Magik - Lowers the return attack of Eisdrake by half.

Note: Eisdrake is weak to Air, Fire and Earth Magik.

Reward: For every 10 health that you remove from Eisdrake receive 1 experience. (Partials are kept until the next attack and health is tracked per hero).

After Eisdrake is defeated, everyone who participates will receive a token of the event.

Moderators of NBRC | 28481 comments Reward
Queen Skye pronounces the Great White Dragon is dead!

Fred the Magician climbs up near the throne and mutters a series of quiet words while waving his hands in an elaborate pattern in the air.

Suddenly a small dragon familiar appears on the shoulder of every knight who participated in the preparations or the battle. Fred smiles broadly and explains.

The Great White Dragon exists as a cousin of the Phoenix. When he perishes, new dragons are formed to serve those who vanquished the prior dragon until their new master perishes.

Dragon Familiar Level 1 - Each monster killed who drops gold will drop one additional gold.
