    O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree -- how angry are thy branches...!
    O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree -- how much you embody the rage of nature and bring the wrath of the elements down upon us all!

Once again The Nate Before Christmas blesses our doors, and this year we are visited by a bouncy bundle of joy: Springy, the Patchwork Plush.

New Tier 7 Crusader: Springy, the Patchwork Plush

Tags: Event, Support, Gold, Animal, Male, Supernatural


A new day, a new planet. You've been trekking through the tangled weeds, grasses and trees from the portal opening when you almost trip on a hard flat object in the ground. Glancing around, you see the foliage isn't as dense and you can make out a structure in the distance. As you approach, you note a sign that says " G M L" on it mounted on the side of the structure.

You see a door and step inside, smelling an oddly familiar cinnamon and popcorn scent on the stale air. It's an alien mall! And some franchises are just that powerful. You walk in further, eyes adjusting to the gloom of dirty skylights.

A rustling noise draws your attention. Something seems to be approaching you. As it gets closer you hear a rhythmic thumping and the tinkle of something metal hitting the tile floor. It thumps into a brighter patch of light and you see a kangaroo plushie made of assorted fabrics just before it jumps on you and you thud to the floor.

"Friend?" the creature asks.

"If I say yes, will you get off me?"

The kangaroo ducks their head and carefully steps off you. "Sorry. It's been ages since someone visited."

"You're here all alone?"

The kangaroo hops. "There's the occasional mouse that I stomp on, but they don't talk, so they don't count."

You scratch your head. "My friends and I are travellers, and we're a pretty large band. In the spirit of the season, would you like to join us?"

"Would I still get to stomp things?" they ask.

You smile. "Definitely."

Springy, the Patchwork Plush has joined your party.

    COTLI: Emo's New Moon Tier 7 

      It's close to midnight, and something Emo's lurking in the dark...
      Under full moonlight, you see a sight that almost stops your heart!

    Wait — this thriller night has happened six times before! And it's back again tonight! Emo's New Moon has returned, bringing ghosts and ghouls to the neighborhood schools where Crusaders fight for their lives from now until November 9th at noon Pacific!

    New Tier 7 Crusader: Xochitl, La Llorona

    Tags: Event, Female, Demon, Supernatural, Support, Gold, Evil


    Rayna, Snickette and Morrigan were off hiking in a forest they'd found on the edge of a desert, exploring the interesting foliage and chatting away. The sun, still visible through the canopy, bathed the trees in a warm glow.

    As they ventured further down the path, Rayna started getting an eerie feeling and glanced around, but all she noted was that the light seemed a little less bright. She watched as Snickette and Morrigan ran forward to investigate a stream that ran alongside the path and her feeling of wrongness grew stronger.

    Right before Rayna's eyes, Snickette was suddenly dragged under the water. Morrigan tried to grab her friend's feet but Snickette was already gone. Rayna raced up to the water and pulled Morrigan behind her, readying a Fire Storm charge, which she directed at the spot where she could still see Snickette's cloak.

    Nothing immediately happened. 5 heartbeats...10 heartbeats….20 heartbeats, and then the water erupted, revealing a ghostly figure.

    "Give me the other child," it rasped. Rayna and Morrigan exchanged puzzled looks. The ghost pointed at Morrigan.

    "Oi, I ain't no child ghostie," Morrigan said. "I'm a leprechaun, thank ye very much. And so's my friend you got there. Give her back!"

    "I'm not a ghost, I'm Xochitl, La Llorona!" the ghost announced. Rayna and Morrigan looked at her blankly. The ghost hissed and tears started flowing down her cheeks. "Surely you must have heard of me?"

    "Sorry dearie, but we've been lots of places and can't learn the myths of all of 'em," Morrigan replied. "Now, give back my friend!" Rayna readied another Fire Storm charge and gestured toward the ghost.

    The ghost clenched her fists and the river splashed around her, but then she let out a sigh. With a flick of her wrist, a drenched Snickette was thrown from the river and started choking out water on the bank. "Fine, have her back. Just no more fire." She started to drift back down into the water.

    Sucking in a breath of air, Snickette gasped "Treasure!" and Xochitl paused. More coughs racked her small frame, but Snickette managed to say, "the ghost had a lot of treasure down there."

    Xochitl raised an eyebrow. "Those trinkets? They just happen to collect around me."

    The three crusaders exchanged looks. Treasure was always handy. "Say, how about you come with us for a little while?" Rayna asked as she dismissed her Fire Storm. "I think you might have some fun."

    Xochitl looked at the river and the tranquil forest. It had been getting a bit quiet lately, as the rumours had started to spread. "I'm in."


    Xochitl, La Llorona is a Support and Gold Crusader. When you want to add her to your formation, you can find her in slot 24.

    Flap...flap...flap.

    Flap...flap...flap.

    The hairs on the back of your neck rise as you enter the tent, a pungent smell filling your nostrils, something that smells like dust and dry earth. You look around for the source, hoping your eyes adjust to the dim lighting soon. You try to think back on what the sign outside the tent said, but you were running too fast to have read it properly.

    Flap...flap...flap.

    That odd sound happens again, closer this time. You turn around, trying to find the entrance to the tent again, thinking it might be worth facing the creatures outside rather than whatever is in here. And then you feel the hand on your back.

    A small squeak slips out of your mouth, adventurer or no, and you turn back to whatever touched you. All you can see is wings.

    COTLI: Song of Thrones 6! 


    Click...click...click...from out of the depths of the mountain cave scurries your newest Crusader friend.

    A Song of Thrones 6 has arrived, bringing with it the hard worker, Zuczek the Fire-Blooded.

    This year's event runs until Tuesday, July 27th at 12:00 PM Pacific Time (UTC -7), introducing Zuczek the Fire-Blooded and bringing back Imani Saskien, Holddoor, The Wolf King, RoboQueen, Zombie Winter, Leerion, the Royal Dwarf, and Brogon, Prince of Dragons!

    New Tier 6 Crusader: Zuczek the Fire-Blooded

    Tags: Event, Female, Animal, Support, Supernatural, Good


    Deep down in the mountainside, where no human was supposed to have been able to reach, Zuczek and her hive lived. A harmless worker drone, Zuczek was off gathering supplies when the slaughter happened. She felt the deaths through the hivemind as one by one her fellows were killed. She rushed back, her anxiousness making her claws slip and slide on the stone as she scurried along.

    Zuczek burst into the entrance of the home cave and managed to glimpse a view of a man-like figure just before the cavern erupted with a burst of light which knocked her out. When she woke up, her worker's body was now covered in a warrior's carapace and a new fire flooded her veins - a fire for revenge. Whatever miracle had saved her life was bittersweet, but if she transformed once, maybe in time she could change again. She tidied up what remained of the corpses of her family into the burial chamber, and then left the cave for good, looking for the creature that did this to them.

    By joining your crusaders on their travels, she hopes to one day find her nemesis.

    Zuczek the Fire-Blooded is a Support Crusader. When you want to add her to your formation, you can find them in slot 37.
