The Risia Ice Festival has been a fixture in DDO since nearly its inception, offering a chance to upgrade random weapons, learn a now-obsolete level of Glaciation, and in Eveningstar, skate your way to a very minor armor upgrade.
But that is not the best part. The best part is the snow, falling anywhere in DDO, on your airship, in the desert, anywhere.
The snow is lovely. Especially at night. But don’t take my word for it.
Snowfall on a Winter’s Night
The snow falls gently
Frozen tears from heaven they seem.
The reflection of the moonlight,
A comforting soft glow on the snow covered ground.
A wondrous display like no other,
Beauty to which none can compare.
A silence like no other
Peace of mind an easy find,
In places such as these.
The snow then stops its angelic descent from above
Lying still on the ground
Like the powder on a doughnut.
Eerie stillness and quiet,
Yet comforting as well.
The dawn is coming,
The time is near.
Yet ugly compared to what I have witnessed here.
