July 17, 2022 --- New "Midsummer" Instance Event
« on: July 17, 2022, 10:57:46 PM »
At the height of summer, when the sun is at its hottest, the barriers
between elemental planes grow thin.

At these times it is common for druids to perform rituals to worship the
greater Elementals. However, there are reports of one such ritual going
horribly wrong in the Sandy Cove south of Balifor. If a rift between planes
has been opened there is no telling what might come through, and the
dangers it might represent to this world if left unchecked...

The seasonal Midsummer instance zone has a 24-hour lockout, meaning each
character can only enter once per 24 hours. There is also a 90 minute
'timeout' timer to complete an instance. Should players perish in the
instance, corpses will automatically be cast out of the rift after the
instance expires (approximately 5 minutes after being empty, or when the
'timeout' timer expires, whichever happens first.) The seasonal event will
be available for a few weeks while many of us remain indoors to avoid the
summer heat waves.

Thanks to Jorquin for creating this seasonal zone for us, with Alecto's
help on many room descriptions.
