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.

Future-Plans.png

Here are some plans for improvements for future events like this that we've accumulated from hosting this event!
  • We'll be adding more areas to obtain embellishments such as more daily quest rewards, other site mechanics, etc! This way, users will have an easier time getting embellishments and wrapping up more presents for the pool.
  • We'll also be looking into some additional daily reward claims to add to the tree.
  • Mostly after introducing the reroll button near the end of this event and the improvements listed above, we just need to work on balancing improvements for next year!

Our next event is going to be a Spring Event some time in April with revamped co-op style mechanics! We'll be back with other updates in the meantime.

As you take one last look at Soll's Ruins with Astra, you can see a
small twinkling light at one of the stone peaks. It expands into several
blossoms - Pellumi is sending you off with some farewell fireworks.
You wave, hoping he can see as the morning sun slowly meanders
over the horizon, and the Ruins disappear without a trace.

    Just letting you guys know that there are a lot of missing links in the post.

    In the Creativity Contest Winner's section - in the second row CopperSunset's, Doku's, and the whole second-last row of Rosre (#16323) • Roxy_Lalonde (#34545) • Rylaigh (#5465) are missing links to their entries.

    I'm not sure if the Avatar Contest Winners section should have all the winning submissions linked but, if so, those are all missing as well.

    This event had the best storyline yet! I gobbled up every bit of that good, good Astra content. Pellumi was also very endearing! Huge ups to the writers on this one.
