Area Lore/Back Story

The Hall of Memory

It is said that the Tapestry contains all things: all the souls of those who have lived, all of the events that shaped their lives, and all of the places that were the focal point of those events. The Weaver of Fate, Cordir, who maintains the Tapestry, is rumored to have walked the passages of time to draw out those most ancient of places -- the temples of the gods -- to bring them out of obscurity and into the waking memories of those alive today. But not only the stone foundations and towering pillars and portals of these places were brought forth... Over this place, She wrought many a spell, and set into place vigilant guards, that the sanctity of those holy grounds not be marred with the stain of violence. Visitors are invited to explore with respect and with caution.
The Hall of Memory is built in two sections. Both are recommended for players 40-50.

General Information/Trivia

Hall of Memory: Lower Hall

  • Portobello was the first to enter the Hall of Memory, followed about 3 seconds later by Sagan, both of whom entered it entirely by accident. (they were blown in by the Vortex winds)

  • The first player to complete a mob mastery in the zone was Marian, who killed the ghost of a worshiper of Grimace for mobmastery level 72.


Hall of Memory: Upper Hall

  • Portobello was the first to enter the Upper Hall, followed immediately thereafter by Strad.

Mobs

There are Avatars to each immortal in the Hall of Memory. Some are located in the deity's temple. Others in a general area of worship if the Temple could not be found, or the Immortal pre-dated the use of temples. Others are in a blackened pit of disgrace. The majority of them are based on specific individuals who served that immortal, where such an exemplar could be recognized. Wherever possible, the Immortal was contacted and their personal choice used.
