Flame and Frost (achievements)
The Flame and Frost story content progresses over time. You will not see everything today, tomorrow, or even the next day. Expect subtle changes at first. Maybe you'll encounter some familiar characters. Perhaps you'll be introduced to some new ones. You might see a new structure where there wasn't one before. The Living Story content is initially about the thrill of discovery. We'll put some markers on your map, maybe send you a letter, or parcel out details through certain characters, but the rest is up to you. As the weeks progress, you'll notice bigger changes in the world. New events may appear. Plots will advance and characters will develop.
