The story for main quests of the Summer Solstice 2017 event began to be developed in late December of 2016.  The idea of having the gods be dissatisfied with the current petitioning setup, that is, wanting more unique supernals and neutral agents instead of angels, was originally conceived by '''Dentin''', who intended to use it as catalyst for an anniversary event that never happened.  Dentin's idea was much more complex, with each individual deity expressing their own wishes and desired for their petitioning, such as Byung wanting blood aspects.  '''Shadowfax''' picked up the idea the following mid-March, who modified the concept to better fit with established lore and simplified the idea into four conflicts, which became the quests for the four event areas.  The event was approved by Dentin in April, and Shadowfax and Draak began to build the areas in May.

Story

During the Drakdrol Crisis of 671 RD, long-lost knowledge of clerical petitioning rituals were once again made known to mortals. Nineteen years later, Dentin officially sanctioned these rituals for use with the High Pantheon. The other gods have had the past decade to evaluate these petitioning rituals, and many have found the terms to be less than desirable. Some are threatening to pull out of the Unified Accord, the great pact that governs the use of supernals, unless their demands for new supernal forms are met. Others wish to terminate their clerics' interdependence on the angel choirs and return to dealing with more reliable beings, such as demons. The Order of the Silver Flame has made it their mission to rectify these divisions and keep the Pantheon satisfied and united. To this end, they will be mounting expeditions to the Planes of Light, the homeworlds of the angels, in order to bring peace and harmony to the universe. It is rumored that they are recruiting adventurers to complete their more dangerous and less savory missions.

Puzzlewood Forest

The Puzzlewood Forest Survival Challenge started on June 10th, it mimicked the events of two years prior, with waves of random mobs of increasing strength and a boss mob to cap off each wave. There were seventy waves in total to complete, numbered 0 to 69.

Differences to previous years

To keep the action flowing and to help groups survive the higher level waves mobs had a chance to drop recovery items such as wands, scrolls and staves, also completing each wave gave a special recovery item, to give characters a much needed boost and help them prepare them for the new hordes. Quests were advanced by killing mobs of the appropriate wave however players could also kill higher level mobs as well, this was to promote fluidity in groups, so players could help each other catch up.
