Announce Post #3285: Solstice Activities

With Solstice in full swing, here's a full rundown of what is happening right now!


From this post onwards, those logged into Lusternia may find themselves receiving a visit from Ironbeard, bearing a present for the lucky recipient.


Keep an eye out for Jolly Bundy sending his fellow gnomes out with a few more presents into the Basin of Life every once in a while. When you find one, just influence them with Charity (AB INFLUENCE BEGGING for full details) to get hold of a present. Remember that you can only get a present this way once an hour - so if you find a Solstice gnome and you've already had a present, share it with your friends!

Holiday Credits

As we do every year, we are enabling the HAPPYHOLIDAYS command from December 19th through to December 25th. It will allow you to claim all 20 daily credits in one go, no work involved!

Solstice Quests

Cities and communes of the Basin of Life have quests of their own happening right now and their Solstice stores are open. For more information see the previous post (Announce #3284).

Solstice Court

Finally, the baying of unruly huskies heralded the opening of the Solstice Court. Eager visitors can visit it by CATCHing snowflakes drifting upon the highways or taking one of the husky-pulled sleighs parked along Stairs of the Last Nine, right outside the Aetherplex (ENTER SLEIGH). That scenic route offers room for a party of four and the leader decides how fast the sleigh will go. To return, simply PULL the rope within the manor or ENTER one of the sleighs at the sleighgrounds departure site for a quick return.

Once there, be sure to visit the bridge where several retired gnomes have taken up residence and peddle their wares. If you forgot to bundle up before leaving for such icy climes, you can purchase warm clothes on the bridge too. Be sure to swear the vow with Steward Tombin to receive your leaflet which will guide you through the Solstice quest and the various activities there. The reward is a stocking that you can hang for yourself or others.

Be sure to check out the improved and challenging skating experience, meet the guests, send gifts and not just postcards, enjoy expanded postcard stamping options and sleigh travel lines, the new ambience and furniture in the shops, and more.


A reminder about closing times for the festivities, all dates inclusive:
Until December 25th - You will be able to claim all daily credits with HAPPYHOLIDAYS.
Until December 31st - Ironbeard and gnomes will be making appearances.
Until January 8th - Solstice Quests and Solstice Court closes.

This is not all that we have planned just yet either so stay tuned!
