Overview Reed Thought Lost Fairy Tale Ice Abyss Echo Black White Puzzle Wind's Gift

The Ice Abyss Echo event was an event that involved playing through stages by visiting locations to collect clues and unveil a story. It awards Dews Dews.png for the Wind's Gift event.

The overall premise of the event was to give insight into the past of Nidhogg, with Smoke of Ages telling about his childhood, Yesterday's Snow telling about his time training as a Knight, Yellowed Time indicating his relationship with Louie, Ashen Glory explaining why he left the Knights, and Dark Night telling about how a certain sword, the Dark Verdict, came to be in his possession. It also gives insight into characters like Agata and to the Blood Curse.

  • Old Man: Later, he won many battles on the land he protected and became the god of Frigidfog City. He had his first child and named him Nidhogg. He put high expectations on him.
  • Old Man: But his way of doing things was too overbearing. He was hated and envied and finally got framed.
  • Old Man: I remember that it's a very cold night when he was arrested. All his fortunes were confiscated, his families expelled out Frigidfog City, and his men dismissed.
  • Old Man: In the chaos, I could only get his wife to a safe place. When I returned to the mansion, Lord Nidhogg was gone...
  • Old Man: The whole place was like just be ransacked. Like the doomsday... Yeah, it is the doomsday of Frigidfog City.
  • Old Man: I've been asking around for the information of the young lord but found no clues. Later, I knew the whereabouts of this pipe, so I found it. It's the only thing I could do.
  • Old Man: It's his favorite pipe. He always took it with him. It's like a token of him...
  • Old Man: Today, all the feats he did became the past, like the smoke in the pipe vanishing in the air...

[Diary of Agarat]
10th Feb., Year 670 New Era
On the third day after the storm quiets down, I finally came to Black Water City. The little dot on the horizon finally became the towering walls as I approached it. I crossed the wide moat and looked up at the high gate. It's much more magnificent than I thought. I'll sign up for the Knight of Kingdom after day breaks. You still remember our agreement? But... Naga, I still cannot believe it today. You are just missing in the snow...
11th Feb., Year 670, New Era
Knight of Kingdom rejected my application. The reason is I'm too young... I cannot believe it. Luckily, I met the Knight Commander, an honorable knight. After knowing my request, he allowed me to join the training of the order. If I can prove myself, I'll be able to join the qualification of Knight of Kingdom. My training will start tomorrow. The training must be much harder than that in Harrod. But you know, I never failed any training, so I must be able to handle this. Naga, I miss those days when we were practicing swordsmanship together.
27th Aug., Year 670, New Era
The end of August is coming soon. It's the day of the annual qualification of Knight of Kingdom. I applied on the first day. I'm not sure if I can get selected, but today, Knight Commander, no, I should call him my teacher, said I had the gift and heart to be an excellent knight. But he doesn't know it's just the first step of our plan.
31th [sic] Aug., Year 670, New Era
The contests is intense just as anticipated. For several times, I thought I was out, but luckily, I passed. Naga, from today, I'm a knight. I'll bring peace to this land with my horse and my weapon. Just as we planned.
1st Sep., Year 670, New Era
Today, my teacher told me he saw the shadow of Nidhogg in me. It turned out that Nidhogg passed the qualification and became one of the Knight of Kingdom when he was 13, just like me. But what's different is he passed neatly in the first place. Teacher said he's like an obsidian dagger, cold, sharp, and emotionless. Those confronted him are nowhere near a rival. I cannot wait to take him on during the training.
5th Sep., Year 670, New Era
I got to know more about Nidhogg from the old knights. Six years ago, he came to Black Water City as a wanderer. Teacher adopted him as his son. I guess Teacher must appreciate him very much so that he treated him just like his own son Louie. But from their tones, I can see that they don't quite like him. The friendship between him and Louie is also taken as a deed to 'flatter Knight Commander'. 'He's just a talentless nobody.' 'He's nothing compared with Louie.'
I cannot agree with them. His ability is commonly recognized and he does take Louie as his own brother. What's more, speaking ill of people behind their backs is definitely not knightly. Anyway, thinking of the praises by Teacher of Nidhogg, I got to work harder. Naga, you will cheer for me, right?
15th Sep., Year 670 New Era
I asked Nidhogg for a trial today during the training. He agreed, but I could see that he didn't use his full power at all. When I said do not look down upon me, he smiled and said, 'You are too weak to be my rival.' That's too much. One day, he will have to face my challenge very seriously.
10th Oct., Year 670, New Era
Today, to find out who's the better successor of the position of Knight Commander, Nidhogg and Louie had a trial on the training ground. Though both of them are still no match for Teacher, it's quite obvious they would both be awful warriors in the future. And I will continue working hard for our plan. I will work hard for both of us, Naga.

Dear Mother, It has been a while since I wrote to you last time. I'm sorry but I cannot say I'm doing good this time.
A big incident happened to the Knight of Kingdom recently and I assume you've already heard about it. Please don't worry. I'm just slightly injured and I'll recover soon. However, the future is so uncertain that I don't have any idea of it... I think the whole order is in vibe too, confused, angry, and sad.

  • Weapon Shop Owner: Welcome, we have a lot of weapons for you to select.
  • Ask
  • I: Hello, have you seen some letter fragments?

Yes. We can't just let the Captain's death slide!
The riot came from nowhere. It came with death and desire. The horn was blown at midnight. Countless armed rioters broke into our camp. It wasn't my first real battle but my hands were trembling...because I knew it was set up by my so-called 'teammates'. It was a political war, a war between the parties, and it was so disgraceful that it had to happen at night. There were so many enemies. Although we were elite warriors, we could not handle the endless attacks. We gradually lost our advantage. I saw the Captain defeated waves of enemies while I was swinging my shield and sword. The two sons that he was proud of were also having trouble. At that moment, I swear, we were just trying our best to survive. We weren't fighting for the glory of a knight.
  • Weapon Shop Owner: Thank you. If you are looking for something similar, you can go to the Arena Entrance and asked the guard.

Arena Entrance[edit | edit source]

As time passed, we were not only suffering from exhaustion but also the increasing backlash of Curse of Blood. The pain was burning our hearts and we could hardly focus. But the enemies were fighting more and more easily like they were immune to the curse. At that moment, I remembered the rumors about the secret potion popular among the elites in Black Water City, but I was not sure. I once talked with Nidhogg, the adopted son of Commander, about this. I was so naive and thought this could be the key to free us from Blood Curse, but Nidhogg woke me up... 'Without the curse, people can become tyrants.' That's true. If we all recognize Blood Curse as a rule, then anyone who dares to violate it shall bear the punishment. No exception. However, the potion breaks the balance. Those who break the rule will not be punished, instead, people who follow the rule will. Just like Nidhogg said, 'Maybe this order should not exist in the first place.'
  • Arena Guard: An incredible competition.
  • Ask
  • I: You got some clues of the letter fragments?
  • Arena Guard: Sorry, not anymore. You can wander about in the city. Maybe it's left in some corner.

Old Letter

The riot happened that night was a war and the war ended with the death of Commander. However, the Commander wasn't killed by anyone's blade. It's the Blood Curse who consumed his heart. As his tall heavy body fell and let out a loud thud, everyone froze.
The strongest human alive was defeated by the potion. The mountain in my heart collapsed. Knight of Kingdom - the blade and shield of the Royal City has become the laughing stock of the world.
It ended quickly after we lost. Most of us were imprisoned and the rest escaped. As for the two sons of the Commander, some said they were killed on the night, but others said they have escaped. I have no idea. Even if they are alive, I cannot imagine what they are being through now...
I'll step on the road of escape myself after finishing this letter. I'll take good care of myself, for the day that I will reunite with my family.
Take care.
  • Tailor Shop Lady: Did you find the missing pages of the letter?
  • Found it
  • Tailor Shop Lady: Thank you! This is the last letter from my son... I haven't seen him since Knight of Kingdom was besieged. I went to the Nameless Ruins in Northwind Tundra, but found nothing...
  • I: The Nameless Ruins?
  • Tailor Shop Lady: It's an old base of Knight of Kingdom, and the battlefield of my son's final battle. It doesn't have any proper name... After the besiege, the base was moved to Black Water City.

Clue: Go to Nameless Ruins in Northwind Tundra

  • Elaine: It's the memory of Rachel about 'that night'. That night of blood.
  • I: The night of blood...
  • Elaine: If you wish, I could take you to the illusion of the stele. You would see what happened that night. But it won't be very clear. It's the memory of Rachel and mine after all.
  • I: Okay.
  • (Elaine touches the stele and starts chanting spells. The words on the stele take us to another zone.)
  • (In the darkness, blurry red gradually gathers, into the blood moon in the end.)
  • (It feels like the sound comes from behind a thick wall and the vision is twisted. I seem to be in a vast water area.)
  • (I cannot feel light or see the exit, until the young man in white jumps in.)
  • (He quickly swims away, leaving a serious [sic] of bubbles behind. I follow up hurriedly.)
  • (It's getting deeper and deeper. The water around begins to take a crimson color. I finally reach the red center and see the young man again.)
  • (There is a sword in his hand, a sword which has pierced the chest of another person. It gives me a shudder.)
  • (The black hair of the person flutters in the water gently. It's like time has frozen on him.)
  • (The young man frowns. At the moment he draws the sword out, the water has an even more violent shaking.)
  • (My hands cannot grab anything reliable. I'm flushed to the lake surface.)
  • (Strange spells were chanted again and at the last moment, I saw the blood whose colors are very striking against the red background.)
  • (The next time when I open my eyes, I'm lying beside Lake Bovaly, my clothes soaking wet.)
  • (The morning sunshine falls on my body in the tweet. The forest morning is so cozy. My headache seems to be better.)
  • (I sit up and look around. There is someone by the lake.)

  • (It's the young man in white. He's all wet too, legs submerged in the water. It seems that he's used up all his strength.)
  • (I can still remember the sword. It gives me shudders even now, but he holds it in the hand like it's nothing special.)
  • (The morning light also sheds on his body, somehow looking very peaceful.)
  • (He raises his head a little to look at the sunshine sieved down. His face is tired, but his eyes are bright like stars in the windy north night.)
  • (That air of attachment feels like belonging to another person compared with the one who draws blade.)
  • (The tree shadow on his body moves slowly. Wind wakes up the fairies and animals in the forest.)
  • (He closes his eyes and when he opens them again, all the light there was gone.)
  • (He left the forest, taking the sword with him.)
