-STUCK- JUNE EVENT!
Posted on 2019-05-31 20:50:45
The June event launches on June 1st at 00:00am LDT, and will end on June 30that 11:59pm LDT. All unused event currency will be stored on your account until next year.

JUNE EVENT - RISE OF THE SERPENT


So, you've probably noticed earthquakes shaking the ground in Explore during the entire May event. An ancient Egyptian rebellious deity, the Serpent of Chaos, has been waking up and is now ready to emerge! Start your storyline, which is located on the EVENT page, and the earthquakes will stop. If you do not wish to start the storyline, the earthquakes will remain for you, as the Serpent will not rise.

Please keep in mind that the whole event is inspired by Egypt's ancient culture, and it's Lioden's take on the theme. We will not be diving into historical accuracy, and we will not be explaining the mythology. We'll just use it as inspiration and celebration.

Mechanics
There is no event bar this month. We're taking a new twist here, and we're focusing fully on the story itself, with you unlocking the progress based on specific dates and options. On the 1st, Chapter 1 is available to you. A few days later, Chapter 2 will let you progress further and enjoy daily quests. On the 20th, Chapter 3 and the story's finale will become available. It will not shut off daily quests.

You will be given the option to choose an ancient Egyptian God to align with - but don't worry, it's quite flexible! You will be able to change your alignment dozens of times as you please when Chapter 2 opens up, until Chapter 3, where your final choice will bind you to the story's reward and close the option to change your alignment.

Each Egyptian deity has their own shop in their temples, which will open to you with Chapter 2.
The shops share some of the same decors among them, but some have unique goodies tied to the temple you're located in. We're happy to give you so many options to change your alignment, so that you can switch the shop anytime as the shops are unlocked, just in case you end up liking another deity's decors much more. If you can't be bothered, trading with other players is a great solution!

Explore
At first, the new explore encounters may be difficult, as you're a lion battling against ancient demons. That's okay though - try using the good ol' Pound move to stun them! As you progress in Chapter 2, you will receive a BATTLE BUDDY! Just like in January when Laharu joined your side, your chosen god's animal form will join you in explore battles - but it will only join when the demons appear. They won't interfere with your normal, natural enemies. All deities will boost your fights with their unique skills and let you reap the rewards from defeating the Chthonic Snakes.

In this example, Seth adds 3 DMG to your 15 DMG, meaning you hit for 18 DMG total.

The Snakes will drop Khepri Beetles if your battle buddy is present. This new currency will allow you to buy things in the temple shops.
The Snakes also drop Chaos Scales, which can appear no matter if your battle buddy is present. You can craft them into Slithering Snake decors, and even the existing Gorilla Enclave's Apophis decor!

Storyline
The storyline is linear. This means there are no multiple endings; HOWEVER, there is a CHOICE. You can pick the god you align with. The benefits are as follows:
- Different Battle Buddy skills
- Access to unique shop decors
- Different lore and art experiences during the story
- The final storyline reward is an applicator aligned to the god you have chosen

Remember that the entire storyline can be found on our official Wiki, linked at the top of each page. You are free to use our Wiki to help with your decisions in this event!

The storyline also features a few animated scenes during "visions". If you're struggling with epilepsy or slow internet, you can turn off animated parts in the storyline's settings.

Rewards
The storyline's rewards are base applicators. They may not be obviously related in art to the proper god, but they have their reasons, along with their genetics.
2018 reward applicators will now be available in the aligned god's shop.

Seth will reward you with Sha, a Red Dark Solid Special base.
* With the dark blood of slaughtered enemies, the red breath of the desert, blue royal lapis and turquoise from Sinai, these shades make the Sha base vibrant with a tinge of chaos - just like Seth himself.

Bast will reward you with Alabaster, a Cream Light Solid Special base.
* Obviously tied with Bast and Ancient Egypt, we found this stone fitting as her reward, and we achieved these light pastel colours as a result from mixing these bases together: Bast, Cairngorm, and Soul.

Anubis will reward you with Velvet, a Black Dark Solid Special base.
* We found this fitting not only visually, but also because Velvet was strongly tied in with African empires and even Egypt in medieval times, when Cairo was the largest producer of velvet.

These applicators are called Favour of _____.
But, that's not all! They're also components of a special combo base. If you breed any of these bases together, you may get a Rose Gold base - just like last year, the component bases are the current story reward apps - and only those three. Sha x Alabaster, Sha x Velvet, and Alabaster x Velvet can produce this combo base, as well as a mix of any of these with Rose Gold, OR even Gilded with Rose Gold. Last year's bases (Bast, Seth, and Anubis) will only produce Gilded.

Rose Gold is a Red Medium Solid Special combo base.

2019 Updates and Information
Aside from the storyline rewards, the following are new this year:
- 8 new Chthonic Snake enemies and their decor versions - craftable in the Monkey Business area
- A unique Chaos Snake Scale craftable background, Temple of the Slithering God
- 20 new decors in all three shops, both universal and exclusive! We might add more during June's Friday update if time allows.
- Chapter 2 will open few days earlier than last year because there's no more technical issues - this means the shop will open sooner as well. We aim for this to happen on June 3rd after rollover.
- Velvet suggestion - LINK - Thank you!
- Rose Gold suggestion - LINK - Thank you!

Note; If by any chance within those last few hours there's any groupie that happens to feature any of these bases, it'd be purely accidental and we ask you to Modbox it for a replacement of Interstellar base
We will make a sweep on June 1st anyway to be extra sure.

In Future Years
We will be interested in doing "side quests" for each temple with other gods that are allied with the "trio". These shops would feature decors dedicated to them as well; for example, Hathor would be allied with Bast, Nekhbet with Seth, Thoth with Anubis, and so on. The main storyline won't change, but you would be able to expand the experience beyond that. We're excited about this idea, but it's only an idea for now.
