Trader Bob disappeared for a time to dimensions unknown but was able to communicate through a bubble that appeared in the Basin. Though communication was garbled, he was eventually able to communicate that people needed to come together at the base of Avechna’s Peak. There, a cube of energy appeared. It was discovered that gems were needed to help Trader Bob in his latest venture. When enough gems were provided, the cube split into the Aetherplex Chamber and three portal chambers, one each in Serenwilde, New Celest and Magnagora. Thus, Trader Bob succeeded in striking his greatest business deal yet as these chambers allow access to aether manses, private abodes in the Aetherways. New shops have opened which sells mystic items and artifacts that allow construction of these dimensional wonders.
