Ashes of Creation

Woe Within the Woodlands

Monday, October 5, 2020

Each living being is endowed with some measure of sentience, and the great forests of this land are not so different. Some inevitably cultivate energies of a darker nature, and the landscape begins to twist in kind. A few devotees have dedicated themselves to a life within these transcendent places, eager to discover the secrets that lie within the land’s understanding.

The Woe Within the Woodlands cosmetic addons will be available in the Ashes of Creation shop from October 7, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific until November 4, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific. Don’t forget that the Heat and Harmony addons will be removed on October 7, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific when the new cosmetics swap over.


Gloomroot Cap

1. Accessory PNG original Accessory Cosmetic Skin *

A bedraggled and grimy hat, choked by deadened vines and eerie fungi. This would normally be the extent of its foreboding nature, if it weren’t also possessed of a sickly aura that seems to dull the senses and sap the spirit. Doubtless a perfect accoutrement for one of an equally blackened soul, it appears to infuse the very earth with its gruesome essence.


Sabletooth Cub

2. Pet PNG original Pet Cosmetic Skin *

All across Verra, there lie forests and jungles ancient and silent. A deep shadow reigns over these places as massive trees seem to steal the very warmth from what little light manages to crawl through. Wildlife is irrevocably changed here, with this particular cub possessing a coat of pure night, as if a feline phantom made manifest. Its eyes glow a bright blue, yet like the land itself, it casts a cold, solemn glare.


Steed of the Frayed Copse

3. Mount PNG original Mount Cosmetic Skin *

Not content with simply spreading their influence through their environs, the few individuals who have made the darkened woodlands their home have taken to imbuing the denizens of the forest with power to better suit their own needs. This steed creaks and cracks like a swaying branch, its body and mane pulsing with a strange, lonesome energy. It is no weaker for its transformation, for it no longer tires or possesses desires of its own.


Guise of the Withered Woods

4. Costume PNG original Costume Cosmetic Skin *

This is the mantle donned by those captivated by the deep serenity of the forest, and in particular, those who revel in the entropy that precedes the decline of life. These witches value their solitude, content to perform their incantations in secret. Those who are unlucky enough to set foot in their domain find themselves at the receiving end of crippling, debilitating hexes, too weak to even retaliate before they quietly expire.


The Crumbled Cauldron

5. Caravan PNG original Caravan Cosmetic Skin *

Both a repository for tools and a repository of sorcerous power, this cauldron is a critical contraption in a witch’s collection. It can be relocated at a moment’s notice, either to escape potential danger or to observe changes in the ecosystem. The enduring nature of the horse makes the witch notoriously difficult to track down, especially within the gloomy, winding paths of the forest.


Hovel of the Faded

6. Building PNG original Freehold Building Cosmetic Skin *

In the most dense and secluded sections of the woods, the witches make their permanent home. Within these desiccated walls, they ruminate and deepen their understanding of growth, life, and decay. Illusionary magics pervade the structure, melding with the forest to hide the hovel from prying eyes. Paths wind and air stifles, confusing those who try to seek this solitary place.
