The Unweaver struck at us, but we held firm. Aetherea suffered and, even as we suffered with her, hands turned to her aid. We watched, we worked and we supported Alia Baroque as he constructed the new Aetherea.

We’d like to thank Alia for his tireless work in both attempting to heal the original region and constructing her new sibling, and all those who supported him with their efforts and good wishes through this difficult time.

Aetherea has passed through her darkness and has re-emerged to share her light with us. Let us all draw hope and inspiration from her journey.
