Strangely Gooey Holiday


The smell of cookies and nog hangs heavy in the air, and there is a magical glow glistening in the ice crystals that cover the window panes; Wintersdance is but a few short days away! This wondrous celebration is beloved by nearly everyone across Zyathé, and even the household of the esteemed archmage, Alphinius Goo, is caught up in the holiday cheer. Yet the approach of the season each year fills the wizard with as much irritation as mirth. His wife’s favorite decorations were ensorcelled most wickedly many years ago by his rival, forcing Alphinius into a grueling battle to subdue the knickknacks that drains much of the fun of Wintersdance. He’s had enough! Fortunately, a band of adventurers have turned up on his doorstep just in time to retrieve the wanton adornments – but they’d best hurry, as Ms. Goo is on her way home, and expects to find the tower properly decorated!
