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.

The puzzlewood forest survival challenge started on June 10th, it mimiced 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, with a ring of infinite possibilities awarded to the player or players who conquered all seventy waves or came the closest.
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.
For completing each wave.
