On the 33 and 1/3 anniversary of the death of Old Cashel Connlaodh, King of the Leprechauns, the leprechaun population gathered to celebrate his reign. However, as the green ale flowed, old arguments rose about who should lead the leprechauns, which finally resulted in overthrowing Eileen Connlaodh as the reigning queen, calling for a new contest to see which of Old Cashel’s children should rule the leprechauns.
Thus, Seamus Connlaodh and Gilligan Connlaodh have returned to try to wrest the crown from their sister Eileen.
You can help the leprechauns to choose their new leaders by helping either Eileen, Seamus or Gilligan, who each have a rainbow on the path of nature on Avechna’s Peak, where you can visit them. By helping the leprechauns, they’ll give you a shamrock of their faction.
These shamrocks can be traded in for dingbats or they can be eaten for a blessing. They can also be combined into groups for easy carrying–IF YOU EAT A GROUP OF SHAMROCK, THAT IS YOUR LOSS. YOU WILL NOT BE REIMBURSED.
This coming Sunday, whichever faction has given out the most shamrocks will become the new leprechaun leader and will stay as a permanent quest in Lusternia! After the coronation, no more dingbats will be given out so make sure you trade them in before then.
Oh, by the way, there’s a little known fact about leprechaun magic: they gain the power of invisibility when they’re drunk! How one can overcome that, we’ll leave it for you to discover.
