Day of The Whittling Fools

Today is the Day of the Whittling Fool. All across Movoda people are taking time out to do some crafting. You may notice somewhat shorter timers or some extra exp while crafting as well as some extra items that can be made for a limited time.

mskwik: For those thinking ahead the plan is that exp/time bonuses are just for the day, but the items will be available for a week. After today they will just be available in a single tent without the bonus exp on them.

%50 Exp Bonus and -30 sec to the crafting timer

Gambler's Draw

Sorry I don't have any big new things to introduce this year, but we'll try and shake things up somewhat anyway. I know this isn't one of the more anticipated/exciting holidays but we don't want any skills to feel left out, now do we?

As per the usual I'll add new cards and retire cards spread out throughout the day. The polls about which cards went well enough last year that I've tried to keep some player input as part of the process.

So to start with you will find a card show in Echtin that anyone can visit and trade cards at. It will select from all cards you have in your inventory and trade them randomly with other players there so be careful what you are carrying when you enter. It will also give a small amount of cards exp for as long as you maintain an active botcheck so you can train cards afk for the day. It is also keeping track of all the cards traded there, at the end of the day I'll take the top 3 from the ranks there and include them in the retired cards list so consider carefully what you want to trade...

Retired Items:
Wood Card
Greenhouse Card
Golem Card
Elephant Card

New Items:
Item: Frog Card
Weight: 0 stones
Class: card

Item: Golden Gardening Trowel Card

Today is the Sorcery Solstice. The whole world is covered in magic, so thick you can almost see it. A lot of skills done out in the open will gain a little magic XP as well as the usual drops today as long as you have the MP to handle it. Also check out the celebration going on at Haldos Outpost, you might even be able to coax a little something extra out of old man Haldos for the next couple days.

+1 MP Restore for 1440 mins from Haldos

While woodcutting, mining, and fishing at some spots you randomly get +4 magic xp for 1 MP

Alternate fishing day

So through a combination of illness and technical difficulties it seems I lost a few days the beginning of this week (including a certain fishing holiday). At this point instead of trying to schedule another single day as a replacement I think we'll come up with something that can all be done at a time of your choosing. Not going to make any promises at this point, still a little bit off, but I'd like to aim for early next week and probably have it available for you to choose 24 hours out of the week to have festivities open.

New “Holiday” Tents put up on the 16th

Quest in Ponat Pier for -5 Fishing for 1440 Mins
This quest opens up Party Tents in 4 Locations with no crowding.
1: Ponat Pier is 1 place and able to fish Mackerels here with a 50% XP bonus and very low timer.
2: Port Baron is another place, Higher lvl fishing is required (lvl 50+) and the catching of Barracuda (for 99 XP each)
3: HMS – also has a “party tent” with many different types of fish and XP depending on your lvl.
mackerel 19
flounder 25
haddock 28
sandbar shark 37

Lost Miners Festival

Today is the Lost Miners Festival, a day in memoriam of all those who went into the mines and never came out. Grab your pickaxe and give mining a try, you'll get some extra experience today and may even find some new spots to try out your skills.

Earthquakes exposed random ore deposits in random towns. Possible to mine higher ores than your mining level. Crowding in the random spots, no crowding in the normal mining spots. Ores gave extra XP

Re: Lost Miners Day

Okay, don't think I'm going to stay awake until the end so here's the story (so hopefully I don't have a bunch of bug reports in the morning). The “normal” mining spots should go back to normal at the end of the day, but the extra spots will remain with the same exp/timer until they are depleted. In addition they will continue to respawn (at gradually increasing intervals) for about a week with somewhat less bonus exp than today but still more than normal (and with the usual world chat line announcing their arrival but not their location).

Golden Harvest Fest

Happy Golden Harvest Fest. In celebration you'll get some extra exp for planting or harvesting anywhere today. The public greenhouses will be in full swing and you may also find some other farmers who are looking for a little help.

mskwik [Admin]
2011–10–23 00:01:37 Where do these NPC farmers come from anyway...

Just to keep things interesting we have a new cast of characters this year. At Barin Plains, Farmer Joe has a rather large field of wheat that has overnight acquired some mysterious circles and a rather ominous arrow pointing at his house. Now to throw the aliens (because where else would they come from) off the scent when they return tomorrow night he has decided it must all be harvested today and you can keep whatever you take so long as it all goes away.

Now in Baron Plains (just to keep you on your toes), Farmer Bob seems to have (in an accident involving alcohol and a lawnmower) inadvertently eradicated one of his neighbor's fields. Now he is looking for help to get it back before the neighbor in question notices. Due to some minor nearsightedness on the part of the neighbor it apparently doesn't much matter what you plant as long as it is “green and leafy”.

And there will be some other things later in the day that are destined to be permanent, but I will want to keep a closer eye on as they get added.

Picking Wheat at Barin Plains – No Crowding – 13xp per Bundle of Wheat – 10 Sec Min Timer
Planting at Baron Plains – You provide the Crop (Grapes, Cilantro, Spinach, and/or Parsley) 50 xp – No crowding

Planting guild greenhouse – 26 exp – Normal crops; 32 exp Higher crops
Grinding Wheat guild flour mill – 19 exp
Refining sugar guild refinery – 26 exp 

3 New Permanent quests added – Sage, Black Pepper, and Garlic
