Winter Solstice Festivities 2017


Gather round, gather round! Snow is falling on the ground, and the spirits are getting quite high around the Keep! Let's take a sneak peek on what will be going on!

Gifting
  • Gifting starts on December 19th at midnight EST
  • Gifting ends on December 24th at 11:59PM EST
  • Gifts can be opened on December 25th starting at 5AM EST. They can be opened at any time between that and early May.
  • Gifting works thus: Next to any unfrozen egg and hatchling there's a "Give" button. Click that and you are taken to a screen where you write a receiver's name, and a short message, if you want. Click "Submit" to send the gift. If you want to hide your name click "Anonymous" on the sending screen. You can send as many or as few gifts as you like, the only limit is you can send a maximum of 3 gifts per person. You can receive up to 25 gifts. To see how many gifts you've gotten, go to your Keep and scroll to the bottom of the page. There, under a picture of a Tree you'll see the text "You've got X presents, but you can't open them yet! " where X shows the number of gifts you've received. If you don't see the picture of the tree or the text, that means no-one's sent you any gifts yet.

New Creatures
  • New creatures are available starting from December 19th in the Stream and elsewhere. The stream will flood up to and until December 27th. More detailed information about the released creatures will be posted in the Creature Release News thread. There will be creature releases on more than one day of the event.

Solstice Caravan
  • The Solstice Caravan will appear on the 19th and remain up to and until December 27th.

Egg limit
  • Due to the downtime earlier, the egg limit was raised to 6 eggs, 8 if the last two are donation pet eggs. This egg limit raise will be in effect for the whole of the Winter Solstice Event.

Other stuff
  • There will also be some other stuff happening during the Winter Solstice Festival, so stay tuned!

One of the new items can now be used! Check out your Inventory to use the Breeding Restoration Potion.

The Potion can be used on any species of creatures that have limited breedings. This includes Coal and Tinsel Wyrms, Arkais and the Ornamental Penguins.

If a creature has used up all its breedings you can use the Breeding Restoration Potion to reset the creature's breeding count and thus breed it again within that creature's breeding limit.

Last one of the new items can now be used! Check out your Inventory to use the Fine Tuning Glass.

The Fine Tuning Glass is a concept from 2016 January Item designing competition and the last of the winning three to be implemented.

The Fine Tuning Glass can only be used on creatures based on certain conditions:
-The creature must be an egg or a hatchling. The Fine Tuning Glass cannot be used on adult creatures.
-The creature must be frozen.
-The creature's stage percent must be over 0% and under or equal to 5%.
-The Fine Tuning Glass will adjust the creature's stage percent to be anything between 0% to 2%.
