Many of us have been to the Sea of Spores, by Hunters' Guild quests, cleaning up PK counter or for some other business. Gigantic roots hang above your head and disappear in the acid mist, which makes it difficult to breathe. The place doesn’t fit for almost any form of life because of huge mushrooms and countless spores. Enormous spiders can’t wait to sting you, and their poison is deadly, so you need to be careful. In the most inaccessible place of this sea dwells a creature, which enjoys the environment.

Its name is Orfen. Many poisonous spiders are watching over it, and its den is entwined wuth nasty, sticky web. There’s only one good thing about the place: this creature cannot cross the borders of the Sea of Spores, as great magic protects the world from spreading of this pest, keeping it inside the perimeter closed with spells.

This monster surprises both by its looks and its history. She’s Arachne, a high, spider-like creature and once had been a friend to the races of Elves and Men, but now attacks everyone who gets close or tries to lure them into the web. It’s not easy to kill it and takes many a man to challenge it. When Orfen wakes up, she wanders around the Sea of Spores. If you attack her, she’ll escape to her nest located in the middle of the location. If you’re lucky, she will not flee. It’s more difficult to kill her in the nest, but still possible.

How did this place appear? Why does Orfen hate the races of Elves and Men so much? Long time ago the place was a huge forest where mushrooms grew. But it was deformed with magic energy during a terrifying war.

The place had become a frightening battlefield where the Elves and the Men fought for domination over the continent, but fell into ruins because of powerful forbidden magic used by the Elves. As a result, high concentration of magic energy destroyed the ecosystem, and the place became a “rotten marshland”. The spores from the marshland started spreading over the neighboring region. To stop the "rotten marshland" and prevent it from spreading any further, the wizards of the Ivory Tower placed a tower with protective magic field.

The war left its traces, and even now the remnants of the battle can be seen. The towers with protective magic field prevent the marshland from spreading around, and the wizards of the Ivory Tower look after them. You can still find mushroom plantations around the place, like Elves’ Great Tress, Cruma fields, etc.

In general, the sea reminds of a white desert, it’s cold and beautiful at the same time. White spores, like snowflakes, fall from the sky, creating a quiet and peaceful atmosphere… Except for Orfen. Sea of Spores Map.jpg

Trying to stop the terrible war between the Men and the Elves, Orfen was badly wounded. She got into a trap in a cruel battle. Then she fell asleep for several hundred years.

When she woke up and saw the place devastated with the battle which once had been a beautiful forest, she got angry and started attacking both Men and Elves in the vicinity.

Then the wizards of the Ivory Tower gathered to stop her insane assaults. Nerupa, Orfen’s elder sister, says that the reason for Orfen’s madness are poisonous fumes of the “rotten marshland” which destroyed her brain.

Orfen’s goal is to destroy the Men and the Elves, she dreams of sucking out all their blood and of covering the world with her long, thin web. Even now she spins “the threads of future” to make her appalling dream come true.

Belmont, the archmage of the Ivory Tower, was sent to the Town of Oren to lead the group of four wizards who manage the magic barrier and keep it safe, so the Sea of Spores couldn’t spread out anymore. He always gathers information about the “rotten marshland”. Thanks to their efforts, the Sea of Spores and its owner are under control, and the world of Aden can sleep peacefully.
