The Sunbreeze festival is returning to Vana'diel, which means that the Mighty Maidens Mumor and Uka will be making another grand show...or they would if something hadn't happened to Mumor! What has befallen our heroine and what does this spell for the fate of the Sunbreeze festival as a whole?
Starting July 29th and running to August 19th, the three starting nations of Windurst, Bastok, and San d'Oria, as well as several surrounding areas, will become abuzz with festivities. Special minigames, goldfish catching, special event vendors, and much more will be available to make this the best Sunbreeze celebration Vana'diel's seen!
Excited for the event's return? Let us know about it over on the ZAM forums!
In a time so far gone that many have forgotten, a meteor plummeted from the heavens, striking in a long-since abandoned area of Vana'diel. Bursting forth from this rock most foul was Ullegore, the Demon King, whose sole calling was to twist the world in eddies of boredom, sucking every last drop of fun from festivals and wrenching smiles from people all throughout the land.
Laughter, however, has a way of striking back. In this most dire of times, when smiles were all but drained from the faces of even the most jovial, one lovely young girl emerged from the wastes to bring happiness back to the world. Our heroine, a songstress supreme, had the uncanny power to turn the support of her adoring fans into energies that could face even the most sinister of evils.
Together with Uka, a former lackey of Ullegore who renounced her evil ways, they formed a dazzling dance duo—the Mighty Maidens—and won the affections of Vana’diel festivalgoers of all stripes and colors. At last year’s Sunbreeze Festival, the two battled their way to victory over the Dashing Dreamers, a terrifying troupe from Adoulin that sought to enthrall Mumor and Uka with their masculine wiles.
The time of this year’s Sunbreeze Festival is close at hand, but Mumor is nowhere to be found! Diva, sensing her chance at stardom, closes in to wrest control of peoples’ emotions.
In a world filled with right, how could things go so wrong? A new, unexpected rival aims to ascend to stardom! Will Mumor and Uka emerge victorious, their voices singing an anthem of victory? Or will they succumb to the villainy within, relegated to but a footnote in history? Their fate lies in your hands!
|Currently touring the land as a top-selling stage performer, Mumor is the only daughter of Professor Sarmoega, undisputed genius inventor and head of the Research Institute for Paranormal Phenomena (RIPP). Her true identity, however, is that of a superpower-imbued fighter who has received special training specifically in preparation for her destined battle against the evil demon king, Ullegore. With her father's miraculous invention, the aptly named “Miracle Wand” in hand, Mumor transforms from an affable if somewhat ungraceful young lady into the irresistibly adorable superheroine, Fantastic Fraulein Mumor. Her claim to fame is the ability to convert the boisterous support of loving fans into a formidable force which, when fully charged, can be used to unleash an ultimate attack against the enemy for massive damage.|
|Formerly of Ullegore’s Four Archfiends, Uka’s troubled childhood rendered her vulnerable to the demon king’s wiles; his honeyed words of praise for her talent in mimicry enough to win her over to his malign cause. She was sent in her master’s guise to gauge Mumor’s strength, and through that first encounter mastered dance. Her second meeting with Mumor, however, came to an unforeseen conclusion. Realizing her love for dance in defeat, Uka renounced her loyalty to Ullegore, choosing instead to accept Mumor’s invitation to form the Mighty Maidens. With the power of their Dancing Force combined, no night exists that cannot be turned into a sunshiny day!|
