Act 2 Story Quest

The first chapter of Shadows Amidst Snowstorms finishes on a cliffhanger after finding that Albedo is a creation from Khaenri'ah.

We also find out that Albedo and Durin have a common origin. Not only that, the energy of Durin combined with the Ley Lines in Dragonspine also allows creatures to replicate Albedo.

A clone of Albedo is messing with the Adventurer's Guild training, to the point Eula, Amber, and Bennet can not find their way back. So Albedo sheltered them in their camp.

The following day, our heroes finish in the middle of an Avalanche. Albedo and Bennet are missing. After an extended search, Albedo shows, but Eula and the Traveler perceived something odd. We'll let you discover the rest.

Act 3 Story Quest

The third and last chapter of the Shadows Amidst Snowstorms will release on December 4th, and we're in for a big conclusion!
