The Night King approaches...

Questnews

(  1)  Zistrosk     10/09/17     The Night King approaches...

Reports have come in from across the realms that mysterious ice fissures have
been appearing in the ground, and in one instance an eye witness reported
seeing an individual that fit the description of the legendary Night King
creating the fissure simply by pointing his finger at the dirt. Upon close
inspection, the Arcane Heraldry of Darkhaven have determined that the realms
may be under attack, most likely by white walkers and other cold denziens.

Duke Luther has asked that the heroes of the Realms gather once again, and
help stave off this chilling turn of events. If allowed to progress, it surely
cannot be good for the cities of light. 

Scapezist's Note: This quest will run throughout the month of October, with a 
climactic end-event at 8pm mud time on Monday, October 30th. This quest is
for any level but non-AV questors should avoid fighting the mobs. Be IP1 in
the area, and if player corpses are on the ground at a fissure please select
another target to attack. Quest activity will be tallied automatically.
Declare your quest character to me please before you start via tells/mudmail.
Undeclared questors will recive no credit. AV Scoring will be a composite of
all KBs. Non-AVs scoring will be the total of fissures disabled. If you have
yet to start this quest you have until reboot the morning of the 29th to join.

There were technical difficulties ....

(  2)  Zistrosk     10/01/17     The Night King takes the Night Off

The Night King lost his left shoe.  Until he finds it, he is unable to continue
his attack on the realms.  Oh, and his shoelaces are gone.  He'll need those
too.  As soon as he gets that sorted, I'm sure he'll be back.
 
-Scapezist
p.s. I'm no longer in trouble for not being in trouble enough.

... but they got worked out!

(  2)  Zistrosk     10/02/17     The Night King is back on the hunt after a relaxing night off

The Night King found his formerly lost left shoe, and got a new set of laces.
Now that he's all laced up, rested up, and done "chilling out", he's back in
action.  And so are his cold minion buddies.
 
-Scapezist
p.s. Jon Snow: You know nothing, Zistrosk.
     Zistrosk: Yeah, I knew that.

Mechanics

The Night King makes an appearance at random locations across the mud, turning the ground into an icy fissure and summoning a White Walker to protect the fissure.

A wide fissure underfoot is filled with the Night King's black ice.

Zistrosk's Thawing Fissure . . .


Players search the room, and find valyrian steel spikes and valyrian steel masks. Non-AV players can spike the fissure to damage it for a time and weaken the forces of the Night King. AV players can attack and kill the White Walkers, who lose a hand that will attack separately. When the White Walker is dead, the Night King resurrects the White Walker's corpse as a Wight. An AV player can fight the wight, who may also lose a hand that will attack separately.


An icy mask made of valyrian steel glows with an aura of power.

The White Walkers are extremely hard unless the AV player is wearing a valyrian steel mask. The mask weakens them and makes fighting them much easier. A spiked fissure also weakened the White Walker and made the fight a little easier. Killing a White Walker has a high chance of causing the mask to fall to the ground and disintegrate.

The Night King only hangs around for a few seconds and is very hard to kill. There was a non-obvious way to get the Night King to stay, and killing him required a large group, but the one to get the KB on the Night King got a lot of points.

Once a non-AV has spiked a fissure, or an AV has killed a White Walker, they are unable to do another one for about two hours. There is no timer limit on summoning and killing the Night King.

Point Value per quest objective:

  Night King 100
  Walker      10
  Wight/Hand   1
  Spike        1

Mobs

Night King

The Night King stares at you with ice blue eyes of cool hatred.

Here stands the supreme leader and first of the White Walkers, having existed
since the age of the First Men. Older than the trees, this ancient being has
been ageless since he was converted by a dark ritual cast by the Children of
the Forest into a master of cold, dark, evil powers. Able to convert humanoids
into White Walkers, raise corpses into shambling wights, create fissures in
the earth with a gesture, and withstand the full onslaught of dragonfire, he
has proven himself a difficult force to be reckoned with.
The Night King's essence seeks out another fissure to regenerate his failed body...
The Night King laughs quietly to himself, and disappears in a waterfall of tiny ice crystals.
The Night King refuses to lower himself or his minions to your level!

A White Walker, servant to the Night King, narrows his eyes at you.

Similar in appearance to the Night King, this White Walker minion has blueish
tinted cold looking skin. His ice blue eyes stare intently, filled with a
chilly hate for all those living among the warm races. It is said that his
attack can shatter all but the most blessed of steel. Narrowing his eyes
slightly, he tightens his grip and looks prepared to attack.
The White Walker laughs at your feeble protection from the Night King's power.
White Walker says, 'Your puny steel and inferior metals cannot harm me!'
The White Walker's powers are greatly reduced due to the influence of the valyrian steel mask.
The White Walker draws power from the Night King's dark icy fissure.
The White Walker is frustrated in his efforts to draw power from the icy fissure.
The White Walker's hand is severed from his body, but doesn't die!

Which spawns:

Severed Hand of a White Walker

The severed hand of a white walker is grasping for your throat.

This hand was severed from the White Walker in battle.  However, it does not
seem to have figured out that it should have stopped moving...

On White Walker death:

From afar you hear the Night King's voice echo: 'My servant, obey me, you are not done yet!'
The White Walker's corpse stands up again as an undead wight.

Which spawns:

Wight

A wight animated from the corpse of a white walker obeys the Night King.

Though severely damaged, the tattered pieces of the White Walker's corpse have
come back together to do their master's bidding one last time.
The wight's hand is severed from his body and begins to crawl about.

Which spawns:

Severed Hand of a Wight

The severed hand of a wight is crawling menacingly towards you.

This hand was severed from a wight during battle. Just as its undead host,
this hand will continue to fight for as long as it can move.

Finale

(  1)  Zistrosk     10/30/17     The Night King is marshalling his forces...

While the Night King's campaign of icy terror has been thwarted, the Arcane
Heraldry of Darkhaven has detected a growing aura of cold to the west
of DH. Prepare yourselves, honorable Heroes, to repel this threat!
 
Note: This event will start around 8pm mud time on 30 Oct 2017, and is for
level 50s only. IP1 on any one character you want. Participation in the
previous month long quest is not required to join in.

In addition to a fully powered Night King the questors also had to contend with:

A White Walker Lieutenant

A White Walker Lieutenant to the Night King attacks the legions of light.

Tall and lanky, with powerful arms and blue skin everywhere, this cold looking
man cooly regards all that come before him with an air of dismissal. He has
defeated or turned every assailant that has ever been brave enough to engage
him in battle, and clearly expect to do so again.

The White Walker Lieutenant trudges on towards Darkhaven.

A White Walker Berserker

A White Walker Berserker to the Night King attacks the legions of light.

Berserker to the core, this tall round man is massive in nearly every way that
matters. His thick arms look ready to rip up trees, and his muscular legs
look strong enough to stomp boulders into dust. His long white beard is 
stained rust in places, probably from the blood of his slain enemies. Only
the bravest would stand a chance against this monolithic behemoth.

The White Walker Berserker charges onward towards Darkhaven.
