Hey there, looks like you just wandered in. Why not have a look around and stay for a while, maybe even start your own adventure, if you're into that.

Welcome to February!

Hello everyone! Welcome to February, we hope you're staying warm and hydrated!

Our 32nd month of limited shops has arrived:
January's theme is the Ancient Abyss!

The great and endless depths call to you with a unique song.
A light appears in the distance, then another, soon joined
by more and more, but they are not stars.

RAVAN'S STORY AND SHOP

Hope to see you there!

SILVIE'S MINE BALANCING
We're currently testing and finalizing content for the Silvie's Mine Balancing update. We meant to release it within January but due to some delays moved it to this month. This update will be released in the first week of February! We hope you enjoy the upcoming content.

WINTER EVENT PREPARATION
Our artists and writers are hard at work on content for the upcoming Winter Event, it will feature the familiar Gifting Event along with a new area, NPC's, and lots of fun content to collect. We'll also be hosting some forum contests and giveaways during the event. We're aiming to launch everything around the end of February but will need to observe our progress to finalize any dates. Looking forward to revealing more!

IRL OBLIGATIONS & CUSTOM STATUS
You might have noticed a few delays over the last couple of months, this was due to key members of staff going through some unexpected IRL related circumstances that needed to be prioritized over working on the game. February will be a busy (and short) month IRL for some staff members as well, so we may need to shift some priorities around in order to accomodate this. We're looking at shifting the release of the current batch of customs if we absolutely need to!

STAFF RECRUITMENT
We're preparing materials for the recruitment of new Jr. Moderators and Community/Event Managers, as well as updating our current internal staff organization system to be more efficient and well organized. Once this is done, we'll be ready to release a recruitment post!

ROADMAP RELEASED
Recently, our Roadmap thread was released, we'll be updating it as time goes on as well as adding more information to it when we're able to provide it. We hope you're excited for some of our long term plans!

AFTERWORD
While working on the Silvie's Mine Balancing update, we were experiencing some unexpected IRL related delays. Because of this, we decided to shuffle things around a bit to get this update released first. We're currently still testing the newly balanced dailies along with finalizing the other items on our list, and hope to get them out as soon as we can. Thank you for your patience this month as we sort things out! We hope you enjoy this update, we've parceled out our stockpile of new Wishing Well content and this is the first installment.

SILVIE'S MINE BALANCING
We'll be releasing the Silvie's Mine Balancing update some time this month! Included will be daily quest rebalancing similar to our previous daily balancing updates, with tons of new NPC shop items and pets!

ROADMAP & BETA CHANGELOG
While we were planning to get these up last month, December was unexpectedly hectic IRL for much of our team. We'll be ready to release this and tick it off of our priority list at long last this month. Thank you for your patience all this time!

NEW WISHING WELL UPDATE
We have produced a pretty big stockpile of unreleased wishing well content, so we'd like to do a wishing well update some time this month!

WINTER EVENT PREPARATION
We've made the decision to postpone Thalies' story event to next fall, and tackle a more casual Winter Event instead. The plan for this will be a not too lore heavy event with gifts and fun new content all around. More news on this will arrive when we've progressed further!

Witches War Conclusions

Hi everyone! Thank you for partaking in the Witches War event. We had so much fun with everyone and hope you enjoyed your time dueling for your witch and experiencing the story. Congratulations to all of Mycel's friends and herself for clinching the final victory.
portrait-2-4t.png
Thank you, my lovely companions. I never thought we could
work this hard for something together, but here we are.
I have a newfound trust in our ability to weather difficult
times, and it puts my heart at ease.

2857-7sejRUJTM1-strangers-mire-thicket.pngstranger.png2872-0But1M4rrS-the-red-tower.png
newpermcontent.png
The event's conclusion brought in a new NPC and a new town, complete with daily errands and a full NPC shop, as well as possible future content!
  • The Stranger's initial quest line starting from "Amid the Murk and Mire"
  • You will unlock a shop at the quest's conclusion which requires Crimson Energy
  • "Traversing the Warring Forest" can be completed twice a day from now on, allowing new players to unlock the later content in 8 days instead of 15.
  • The New Daily Errands - Amount of Crimson Energy gained per quest completion has been raised from 5 to 10, negative route completion has been raised from 2 to 5.
  • The Various Witch Fruit hatchable recipes have been moved to the Officiator's Record Office
  • The Stranger's Wares shop has disappeared along with the Summer Seasonal clothing sets, which will return next year in a different event.

All Witches War quests are now part of a permanent side storyline that will unlock the new area for players.
Any players that have not started the Witches War storyline can begin the "Amid the Murk and Mire" quest in their own time after completing the initial main storyline in 3's Forest, namely after completing the "Returning to Trout" main quest.

future-plans.png
Here are some plans for improvements for future events like this that we've accumulated from hosting this event!
  • This was our first event with permanent content unlocked as a result, and we're excited about new functions that we were able to code in for future storyline mechanics.
  • We're looking forward to doing more permanent content releases through events and a bigger variety of content!
  • Team Selection -  We'll be looking into ways to give users more agency and choice in the team they help, while still keeping the teams relatively balanced.
  • We'll be making it so that draws by default and draws from duel responses give different rewards, draws by default should give the default less amount while draws from duel responses should get a bigger reward.
  • We'll be looking at the daily losing team point gain boost to make it more balanced and give teams more agency.
  • We'll be looking into various ways to safeguard against cheating both through coding as well as balancing.
  • We'll be adjusting the team insignia code to allow them to linger for a time after the event ends.

Our next event will be a fun Winter themed event with a more casual, less lore-heavy story some time this season! More news is incoming when we're ready.
quicklinkimg.png
You look back on your time fighting for your witch, and see instead
the four witches now standing together, united.

They look content and wistful, perhaps hopeful for a better future.
The moment the hand of generosity and benevolence was
extended - that was the moment the illusion broke.

A Final Bewitchery...

witch-war.png shop.png custommakergiveaway-smbutton.png worldmapbutton

In the thicket of battle, the stranger's red energy begins to swirl with a life of its own. It's being harnessed by forces unknown, hiding amongst the legions of world-hoppers defending their respective witches.

Dopplegangers? Wizards? A mystery until their sudden disappearance, along with their influence. The Witches War rages on.

dividerS.png

whathappened.png

Recently, we discovered a few instances of rule breaking which skewed the points in the Witches War. This was too significant to ignore, so after extensive investigation and some deliberation, we've decided to do the following.

44,283 points will be removed from Team Glume on December 10th, 4AM DVT

The Witches War event has been extended to:
Sunday December 11th, 8PM DVT
This will give all teams a final fighting chance at victory.

  • After rollover tonight, the bonus point gain will be reduced to just 1%, effectively giving the teams a relatively even battlefield for the final showdown.
  • We're hoping that these updates make the best of a difficult and unique situation, and we'll also be looking into ways to safeguard against this for other events of this type in the future.

maintenance.png
  • A 15 minute maintenance will occur on December 12th 12AM DVT - 4 hours after the team battle ends - to conclude the storyline.
  • The Stranger's Wares shop stock will be moved to a new place, with the seasonal summer clothing continuing to be available for purchase there until December 16th.
  • Complete the "Traversing the Warring Forest" quest for 14 days in total in order to unlock more content after maintenance!

afternote.png

We'd like to ask that in the future, if anyone sees possible examples of rule breaking, to please report it through the ticket desk only and refrain from discussing it publicly on site or in our Discord Server. This kind of action can unintentionally lead to witch hunts and harassment, which are against our Rules of Conduct and harmful overall to the community. Rule breaking should not be grounds to be harassed by other users, allow us to be the mediator. Thank you very much!
