Information

Auld Lang Syne

The True nature of the mysterious entity called Father Time is unknown. Is he an ancient god? An extra-dimensional being? A stage in the life-cycle of a chrono-entity? A personification of time manifested out of the collective human sub-conciousness? No one knows for certain, and it will likely remain a subject of debate long into the future.

Contact Unlocked

Old Father Time urgently requires your help! You my find him in the chalet in Pocket D

Initial Contact

Heroes, villains, all are welcome. For I am Father Time, and a grave threat is upon us all...

Badge Mission

Rescue Baby New Year from Snaptooth!

Briefing

I am Old Father Time, and as this year comes to a close, I must pass my mantle onto the Baby New Year, so that time may continue to flow. But that scoundrel, the Red Cap Snaptooth, has kidnapped the Baby New Year, and plans to take him to the Fey lands! If that happens, time will grind to a halt. Heroic hopes and villainous plans, all will come to naught! So, I ask the mightiest of mortals, whether they be hero or villain, to help me and rescue Baby New Year!

What's more, heroes and villains may work together on this mission, such is its grave import!

Mission Acceptance

You will have to fight your way through a cold and wintry realm. Snaptooth has gathered Tuatha, the Winter Horde, and other Red-caps to him. You will have to defeat the Winter Guard in order to open the icy caverns where Baby New Year is being held. Once you have him, bring him back to the fairy ring to make your escape.

And do not forget that heroes and villains may work together in this task!

Unnecessary Solicitation

Baby New Year is still a captive of Snaptooth! Perhaps you should find some more allies?

We've gone and done the greatest crime,
We've captured little Baby Time!
We'll hold him 'till he's old and ill,
To keep the world in winter's chill!

So shiver, witches, in the cold,
And pumpkin-heads will rot with mold!
The human world will freeze and slow,
And people will be filled with woe!

For human time will be like Fey,
Unchanging! Always time to play!,
They'll know that this was Snaptooth's plan,
We'll terrorize the world of man!

We've gone and done the greatest crime,
We've captured little Baby Time!
You'll never save the little year
For Red-Caps are the ones you'll fear!

Mission Objective(s)

It looks like winter has come to Croatoa.

  • Rescue Baby New Year!
    • Find the key to the cave!
    • Rescue Baby New Year!
      • Lead Baby New Year out!

You have rescued Baby New Year!

You pull a key made of ice from the Winter Guard!

Debriefing

Baby New Year is safe! Let time flow once more!

Defeat Lady Winter!

Briefing

The forces of evil are on the rise, looking to take advantage of the period of time where I, Old Father Time, will pass on my mantle to the Baby New Year. One such force is a diabolical woman named Lady Winter. She has used her powers over the cold to freeze over Agincourt in Nerva Archipelago and seeks to freeze over the entire world! You must stop her and her plan to turn the world into her personal ice palace!

Mission Acceptance

You must be careful, as Lady Winter is dreadfully powerful. Take solace in the fact that you will not be alone. You will find strange allies in the Tuatha, who have arrived at the scene to stage an assault on the fortress Lady Winter has made for herself. Speak with the one named Nuada and he will help you with the siege of Agincourt.

Unnecessary Solicitation

Lady Winter still remains in control of Agincourt! She must be defeated!

Mission Objective(s)

Old Father Time wasn't kidding when he said Lady Winter had frozen over Agincourt.

  • Defeat Lady Winter!
    • 3 winter obilisks to destroy
    • Defeat Lady Winter

You've saved Agincourt and stopped Lady Winter's attempt to freeze the world over!
