The Legacy Arc is the sixth major arc to take place on the Dream SMP. Directly after the Empowerment Arc, on the 28th of November, 2021, it began and is currently ongoing.
The arc follows Dream's breakout from his imprisonment in Pandora's Vault and the fallout after. After Ranboo allowed himself to be murdered, Technoblade and The Syndicate seek answers, with the only clue being a map depicting an image of MICHAEL. Meanwhile, Tommy finds himself hunted by Dream once again, and seeks shelter from the coming onslaught. Sapnap reckons with the escape of Dream and the continued decline of his fiance, Karl. In Las Nevadas, Quackity mourns the loss of his heir and braces for a fast-approaching reckoning; Las Nevadas also opens up, marking the finale for the Las Nevadas series.
Aftermath of Dream's Escape
Main article: Dream's Escape Battle/Aftermath
Key Dates: November 28th
After Techno, Dream, Connor, Niki and Phil escaped, Sam let the rest of the SMP know that Dream was at large. Punz broke off from his allies, agreeing with Sapnap to split up and search for Dream. Punz used the opportunity to secretly meet up with Dream at a rendezvous point and restock him with supplies. Geared up again, Dream set off to collect the Axe of Peace and gave it to Techno, returning the favor he owed to Techno when Techno gave him refuge and escape from Pandora's Vault.
Tommy began to prepare by building bee-striped walls around his base (out of yellow concrete and obsidian; given to him by Quackity, meant to remind him of Manberg), blocking up all of its entrances and exits, as he knew that Dream would go after him to obtain the Discs. Tommy encountered Dream at the remains of Logstedshire when he tried to find the Axe of Peace (he'd hidden it underneath the cross next to the Tnret) before Dream, but somehow, Dream had found it first, using the axe to attempt torturing Tommy again. While chasing and threatening Tommy, Dream told him that he would manipulate everyone into thinking that Tommy was crazy and make his life hell; Tommy hid inside Phil and Techno's house. Phil admitted that he had helped Techno break Dream out of prison but also said that he would kill Dream if he tormented Tommy again. Quackity also agreed to help Tommy.
Tommy completed the walls around his base with the help of Eryn, Phil, and Boo, ensuring full lockdown on his base.
Main article: 1.18 Update
Key Dates: November 30th
Away from the lore (or, as a dubiously canonical event), with the Caves and Cliffs: Part 2 update being released, the Dream SMP was updated to 1.18. Skipping the 1.17 update, the server receives new height limits as well as new cave biomes. Although, on the 1.18 update, to get new features faster and easier, a realm portal was created for Dream SMP members to enter the brand new 1.18 world.
The DreamXD Statue and Fan Club
The Revival Book
Key Dates: January 14th
On January 14th, Dream released a small video about events that happened at an unknown time before he was put into jail. Dream spoke with his old friend Punz, as they work out if the revival book truly does work, hunting down Vikkstar and LazarBeam to kill and act as Guinea Pigs for their experiments, citing that no one would notice if the two of them had gone missing.
