- 1 Festival Overview
- 2 Events
- 2.1 Silverspring
- 2.2 Thunderhoof Hills/Dalanis Gates
- 2.3 Dust Devil Canyon/Valley of Scars
In the past, when the frost and snow fell and the moon disappeared from the sky, the Frostmoon Demon Beast Thysdyr would awaken from his sleep and cause destruction everywhere. At the time, the people had no way to stop him, so they could only flee. They would wait for Thysdyr to leave, then return to rebuild their homes. The villagers lived through this nightmare year after year, until one year at this time, a strangely-dressed traveler came to visit even though he knew the terrible beast would attack.
That night, as Thysdyr's angry roar drew nearer and nearer, the traveler sat in the empty city, quietly waiting... The next day, the villagers returned to find their village untouched. Surprised, they asked the traveler what had happened. It turns out that Thysdyr was afraid of rune-catalyzed flame. This exciting news spread quickly to all the nearby villages. After that, every time the Frostmoon Beast awoke, he could only continue to hide in the darkness.
Many years have passed, and Thysdyr hasn't been seen for a long time. But every year when the snowy season arrives, people build a giant pyre and dance around it, throwing in rune catalysts. They celebrate day and night, and call the celebration the Festival of Fire.

Hint: We strongly recommend you use 2 rows in your bags to keep the food organized so you know at a glance which foods you have and which you have yet to perfect. Every time you cook, strive to fill one of the holes.

- The chariots have a very large turn radius
- The mouse moves your viewpoint only. Only WASD and up-down-left-right will move the chariot. Think of it like driving a tank.
- The altars tend to be among obstructions to force you to eat time getting in and out.

You receive a chess piece of a certain color. Clicking on a Pure Rune Crystal will change it's color into the color of the chess piece you are holding. When 3 or more chess pieces of the same color line up your team will score. Think "Bejewelled". Diagonals work as well as straight rows or columns.
- After registration, you must wait 60 seconds to start the game.
- Up to 4 challengers may play at the same time.
- Registration is closed while the game is being played.
- Chess Piece colors are: Red, Yellow and Blue. The color changes after each use.
- work each row or column from the ends toward the middle so you get 5 gems instead of 3. This increases your score considerably.
Advice when playing in a team: Agree beforehand to assign a specific color to each row or column.

To light a fire:
- You have 60 seconds to reach and maintain the instructed flame intensity. The acceptable margin of error is +/- 3.
- The fire will randomly grow or shrink.
- Use Water Bucket (Alt-1) to Decrease flame intensity a random amount.
- Use Catalysis Rune (Alt-2) to increase flame intensity a random amount.
There is no transport NPC to send you to Dalanis Gates so you will need to use other means. Transport via Snoop Portal from Varanas, first to Ancient Kingdom of Rorazan and then on to Thunderhoof Hills, will cost you 4,400 total.

Aishas Gracia tells you that they need Flame Rune ×3 or Ice Rune ×3 to power the device to attract Thysdyr. The devices power will only last for 5 minutes so Thysdyr must be contained within that time limit. Additional Flame Runes will need to be used to defeat him.
