Celebrate a year of RIFT™! There is no question: Without the Ascended, the Blood Storm would have utterly destroyed Telara, but thanks to the valiant efforts of Guardians and Defiant alike, Greenscale and Akylios lie slain. To honor their saviors, Telarans are holding a worldwide festival: the Carnival of the Ascended! Both factions head to Fortune’s Shore to rejoice with games and challenges, piñatas, parades, and prizes. But how long can peace last between immortal enemies? And what of Laethys and Maelforge scheming in the jungles of Ember Isle?
