Winter is blowing in across the bay to Paragon City™, and settling on the Rogue Isles™ like an icy blanket. New presents and threats await both heroes and villains this holiday season.

By simply logging in and visiting Paragon City or the Rogue Isles between December 14th and January 2nd*, your character will receive the Cold Front badge and a Fuzzy Earmuffs costume piece, so you can look stylish and keep warm while patrolling the streets (or committing nefarious deeds!).

You’ll also receive the Holiday Spirit Temporary Power, which grants 24 hours of Debt Protection.

And what’s more, you’ll receive the Holiday Cheer Temporary Power – a real gift of giving. You have to target another player and use Holiday Cheer on them. It will reward them with a random, Mystery Gift – possibly a Temporary Power, a sack full of Influence or Infamy, or maybe even a very recognizable hat.

Time of Cheer

Sounds of holiday cheer not only lighten the hearts of heroes and deepen Recluse’s frown – they also seem to lure old foes back from distant defeats to the present time …

And time is what it’s all about! Also beginning on the 14th (through January 2nd), a new contact will be found in Pocket D – Old Father Time. The keeper of the new year has a crisis on his hands, one that can prevent time from moving forward, and thus bringing an end to the universe. Heroes and Villains can band together to tackle this task, a task that sees an old foe Snaptooth make a vengeful return.

Snaptooth is back for the renewal of the year, and with a cunning plot to grind time to a halt. Snaptooth has kidnapped Baby New Year in order to keep Old Father Time from passing on the chronological mantle. If he keeps Baby New Year locked away forever, guarded by the Red Caps and allies among the Tuatha, winter will never give way to spring, and the universe as we know it may come to an end.

Old Father Time can be found through a doorway in Pocket D that leads to a ski chalet built on a piece of the Shadow Shard. If you help him out, he’ll give out a choice of one of several fabulous holiday presents.

Naughty or Nice!

On top of everything else, the Gamester is loading the streets and rooftops with gifts once more. His presents might hold an Inspiration or Temporary Power, or they might reveal less favorable items like a Lump of Coal (though some find this a good thing), a Snowbeast, or maybe even the Winter Lord!

The Gamester’s presents will be found throughout the Cities from December 18th until January 2nd.

Let the holiday fun begin!

*Event will end January 2nd at 11:59pm EST.
