Frostfell Wonderland Village

In 2006 SOE introduced the Frostfell Wonderland Village. To get there you need to find a magic closet (or wardrobe) in one of the cities. When leaving the village, you can choose any city of your alignment (Exiles can only return to Haven) to go to.

Within the village players can partake in crafting, receiving presents and many, many quests! There are several services inside the Wonderland Village such as a banker, mender, merchants and a mailbox.

There is a short cool-down timer between each gather of the snowballs. You can then use the snowballs to throw at mobs or other players, causing them to go through a special animation sequence.

Lore

Frostfell is a Deepice celebration whose origins are shrouded in mystery. It is widely thought that the festival was started by a demigod who hid gifts of food and other goodies for the citizens of Norrath. No one knows when the tradition first began; it could have been during the Lost Ages when all of Norrath was shrouded in a curse laid by the gods.

During this time, no gods bestowed their grace upon Norrathians save one, who in visited Norrath in secret and hid special prizes from the planes about Norrath to aid what was left of the populace. Some historians theorize that it may even have been Quellious in disguise. Either way, over the years it has developed into a tradition celebrated by all Norrathians.

The Dark Elves and other evil races also participate in this festival. No one really knows why, it could just be that everyone loves to get presents. Naturally, to preserve their image, they maintain that they aren't really receiving gifts, but rewards earned through their own superior skills.

Frostfell has four significant days: Kinship Day - A time for families and friends to spend together, celebrating and renewing bonds; Feasting Day - A shared day of feasting on all the bounty Norrathians have collected throughout the year (a favorite day of Halflings!); Gifting Day - Everyone gives and receives presents; Frostfell Day - The final day of celebration, spent in song (or for those races who can't be seen singing, quiet contemplation), parades, dancing, and other fun winter activities.

Frostfell is the live event for December, introduced in 2005, in celebration of winter holidays.

Frostfell
Occurs annually during the winter holiday season.
Frostfell 2013 is planned to run from 12/12/2013 through 01/9/2014.

ZAM credits this article at EQ2 Traders Corner for the list of crafting components.

Trivia Our very own Calthine is mentioned in the poem, 'Twas the Night Before Frostfell in SOE Podcast #53 (minicast #6) (or at least, her fruitcake is!)
