Nothing To Worry About
An announcement on June 17, 2007 revealed that "Some strange weather has developed over parts of the Kingdom. I'm sure it's nothing to worry about." This weather was a precursor to the events of NS13.
On the date of NS13's implementation, it was revealed that the storms had actually been the weather magic of the Naughty Sorceress, allowing her to enter the grimacite site, and steal an artifact of such power that it had "increased her power by approximately two levels". Talking to the penguins working there reveals that this artifact was, in fact, the core of the grimacite site itself, and that the smiths there are now forced to "start making stuff out of the leftovers."
