July Event Rehaul info - 2021

July 2020 Event News

The July event launches on July 1st at 00:00am LDT, and will end on July 31st at 11:59pm LDT. All unused event currency will be stored on your account until next year.

Falling Stars!


July has started, and as is commonly known, the greatest meteor showers will begin this month, especially over the southern hemisphere where Africa gets bombarded by millions of tiny meteorites! The Earth is hit with roughly 40,000 tonnes of space debris (bits left over from the Solar System's formation) EACH YEAR. Crazy, huh?!
Your lions have noticed that the lights also appeared within forests as fireflies! Is this all connected? What's the mystery behind that?!

Remember to check out the Wiki for information about the July event!


Clouded Forest & Fireflies
A beautiful Clouded Forest will open its thicket to you if you pay your toll to an eagle guard. Once per 30 minutes you can hunt for fireflies and work towards unlocking the amazing Firefly Shop! Make sure to sit down and enjoy the dancing fireflies before you catch them!

New in 2020
A plethora of brand-new Zimbabwe decors and two backgrounds! There's a lot of decors coming up. Our art team is busy preparing all the files, and they should all be visible within the Lion Wardrobe and Item Catalogue within a day or two. We may edit this section to reflect the decor set once they've been added!

Important Note: To prepare for the upcoming 2021 changes, all Celestial-themed decors will be relocated to Tefnut's Temple (and given Silver Beetle prices!). They will not be available this year in the Firefly Shop.


Celestial Lion & Meteorite Shards
This month as well, a mysterious self-proclaimed god Apedemak appears on Lioden's lands and asks you to gather Meteorite Shards in Explore.
The more shards you collect, the more amazing stuff you can unlock from his far-away lands. Meteorite Shards are useful for Celestial Lion's Tier 1 Zimbabwe Exploring, but they can also be spent in Tefnut's Temple!

Thank you, Skullface ☠️ (#47620), for the suggestion!

New in the Oasis
The new background in the Oasis this year is Colliding Black Holes, inspired by the recent LIGO observations.



Celestial Tiers!

The tiers are unlocked by gathering Meteorite Shards!

Tier One: Zimbabwe Explore
Here, you'll spend your shards! One (1) Meteorite Shard = One (1) minute of exploring.
This will send your lion scavenging for treasures. Depending on the amount of time you spend, the results will actually vary! 10 minutes spent scavenging will differ from 54 minutes spent, and 54 minutes will be less exciting than 130 minutes! Obviously, you will find unique items depending on the time you spend, so have fun discovering!

The new area that you guys voted for is Lake Chivero! There are new items to be found there!
Exclusive decors are South African Shelduck, African Spoonbill and Slaty Egret!

In addition to this, there is a unique African Sharptooth Catfish food item! Much like Vundu, it has a decent chance of granting you a stat when eaten.

Tier Two: Celestial Raffle
Just like last year, every 12 hours, a new lioness will appear with a base, markings, and eyes that are unique to this month!

2020 releases the Stratosphere base paired with Galaxy eyes.
This year, there will be a 50/50 rotation of Type 1 and Type 2 Celestial lionesses. There is no set order - it is random which type will be generated.

Type 1 will have Celestial, Skyward, Sidereal, or Sunset markings in any slot, the Stratosphere base, and Galaxy eyes.
Type 2 will have the Celestial, Skyward, Sidereal, Sunrise, Sunset, or Leonid base, and Dawn, Starshine, Sunglow, or Draconid eyes. It will also feature a new set of Leonid markings!


The Stratosphere base's genetics are Black Light Countershaded Special, and it is tied to Blue skin.

Suggestion, originally called "Morning Glory". It fit our project of lifting off from Earth and leaving our stratosphere for the 2021 celestial world. Thank you ♥Amour {3G Frost.} (#29257) for the design!

Leonid markings were suggested by many people, here or here, for example. Thank you, 🌾 honey | g1 fringe (#32043) and Katze 🏳️‍🌈 (#3), for the concepts! We picked a few that we liked, plus a new Feline design...

Oh, by the way, Feline 9 is out!


The new Feline 9 markings will start appearing this Friday, and their applicator versions will be added in the upcoming July development update!

What about the eyes!?
Galaxy eyes are a new Celestial Raffle eye colour, with the following genetics: 35% Galaxy, 30% Sapphire, 15% Blue, 15% Pink, 1% Dawn, 4% Starshine

Cosmic eyes are a new combo eye colour, much like how sectoral eyes work. They require Factor 1 + Factor 2 eye colours from each parent to be produced.
Factor 1: Galaxy, Jasper
Factor 2: Dawn, Draconid, Starshine, Sunglow

They have following genetics: 35% Cosmic, 15% Crystal, 15% Mint, 15% Paradise, 5% Blue, 10% Storm, 5% Green


Since Galaxy eyes were taken, this eye suggestion was turned into the Cosmic eye colour. Thank you, Roxanne (Clean G1 Sunrise) (#121082), for the design!

Tier Three: Murder Stone... Er, Celestial Stone
When you sacrifice a lion that is not pregnant, not nursing, not in a reverse breeding, not a broodmother, not in a trade or on a trade cooldown, not frozen, not secured, not hunting, not patrolling, or not in a raffle, you will receive a wonderful reward for brutally killing sending the lion to Apedemak's world. Rewards vary, and remember - we cannot bring back a lion that you've sacrificed on accident. There's many confirmations, though. It's best to name those lions "KILL ME" or "MURDER STONE" just to be sure.

* Cubs cannot be sacrificed. Even if the cubs were chased, the mother is still considered nursing until 16 days of cooldown pass.
* The Celestial Stone does not affect karma.

And, of course, near the end of the month, the Frivolous Apedemak decor will appear in the Oasis to be purchased as usual!


2019 Storyline

The Civil War begins...


The Novels
The Novel, filled with many decisions, will reveal to you the story behind Apedemak's origins, Menhit's purpose, and Apollyon's originals as well. Your choices can stray the outcome of a Celestial war. There are multiple endings - five, to be exact. Which one will you end up with?

During the chapters, you will be able to pick sides; but, as you learn about the lore and situations, maybe your opinion will change? Maybe you will crave something else that you thought would be great for you? Sure, the Celestial path sounds great if you want a Celestial mane, but... maybe Apollyon was right all along?!

There are extra quests WITHIN the Novel that you must finish before you can progress. Oh, and there are rewards for quests AND the chapter endings - and they can vary, depending on your choices. That's why we recommend using the Wiki if you have specific needs.
Hey, don't worry. The Novel quests are made to be done with fairly fast. We even made Apollyon appear during the day to make it easier. <3

You can align with an NPC around Chapter 5 for the final time. While Menhit's ending is pretty linear, aligning with Apedemak and Apollyon can change everything by 180 degrees for both of each of the NPCs' endings. You could say that the guys have both "good" and "bad" endings, but is there truly such a black-and-white outcome? Only time will tell. The outcome of the whole storyline will lie in your paws, brave lions.


Novel 1 will begin immediately in the "Civil War" banner storyline that will appear in the EVENT tab. We strongly advise you to bookmark that page so that you have swift access. Daily quests will be in that same place, unlocked after you finish a Novel.

Daily Quests
* After Novel 1 introduces you to the storyline you will be taken to a default NPC setup. You will face 3 NPCs you can do quests with, however you can only take 1 quest at once, and when you're done, there's 12 hours of cooldown.
* Cooldown is only started once you finish a quest.
* During your questing progress, other NPCs will become "locked" - and will unlock after the cooldown passes.
* Daily quests are randomised from 5 possible options and will always reward same rewards, but the event currency will be randomized to a degree.
* Every NPC will have different quests and different roleplay quote blurbs (for example, Menhit will ask you to gain karma, while Apedemak would prefer if you killed lions in your pride).
* Every completed quest will also grant you 2 reputation with your chosen NPC.
* Once you reach 40 reputation with that NPC, the others will become locked.
* Reputation does not matter other than for locking other NPCs.
* The ending of the storyline will affect the daily quests.
* Apollyon is not introduced on Novel 1. He appears after Novel 2.


* The daily quests do not affect the storyline.
* There are extra quests inside of the chapters.
* Finishing a chapter should reset your daily quest cooldown.
* You can reset your preferred NPC's reputation up to Chapter 5 during the storyline a few times, so don't fret!
* Chapter 5 will give you a final choice and determine your daily quests for the remainder of the month.
* Chapter 5 will determine what kind of ending decision you will face.
* New chapters unlock on specific dates - 1st, 5th, 10th, 15th, 20th, and 25th of July.
* If you start the storyline or join in later in the month, you will finish each chapter in order before getting to the daily quest setup.
* The ending you receive may affect explore encounters and daily questing visuals.
* If you prefer an ending but desire other rewards, you have to trade with other players. Rarity is the key here.

2020 Changes
* The Heavenly Serenity base applicator will now be purchasable within Tefnut's Temple.
* Chapters 2 and 3 reward you with new decors.
Divine Sparkles
Chapter 3, Apedemak
Protecting Stars
Chapter 3, Menhit & Apollyon
Evening Light
Chapter 2, Apedemak
Morning Light
Chapter 2, Menhit

For finishing the whole Novel, you get an Astral Fire applicator. This is a base that you guys voted for years ago to appear in 2020, inspired by Apollyon's story!


The Astral base's genetics are Red Light Countershaded Special, and it's tied to Red skin.

Good luck, lions. The fate of the Celestial world depends on your choices.


Tefnut's Temple


Tefnut's Temple area appears on the EVENT page. Similar in the concept of the community working together, we're presenting a temple to a beloved Celestial Lioness being built this year. Due to our plans for Celestial event changing in future, the characters will be retired and there will be no story tied to this shop, but the temple will stay as an interactive monument to old memories, applicators and decors.

This year, you can donate your SB or special crafting items (such as Large Rocks) to help with the construction. Once the temple is built, a shop will unlock where you will be able to find Sunset marking applicators and Tefnut-related decors for Meteorite Shards.

2020 Items
* New Sunrise Markings applicator, a sister set to the Sunset Markings applicator.
* Heavenly Serenity base applicator.
* New decors.
* The Celestial decors have been moved out of the Firefly Shop into Tefnut's Temple and given SB prices.

Thank you all for the suggestions for Sunrise markings! We've picked four from the many shapes proposed: by Havoc (#128752), by Telephone (#51014), and by Chickpea [Clean Orchid Pie] (#148003). Thanks much for the suggestions!


A Reminder of July's Combo Base
This is your yearly reminder that the Pulsar base can now be bred again! What's unique about Pulsar is that it can ONLY be bred during the month of July, with the following factor bases.

Base Factor 1: Arctic, Pulsar
Base Factor 2: Anjeer, Blazing, Inferno, Prune, Pulsar

Outside of July, you can only breed Pulsar x Pulsar to produce more Pulsar lions.


Another Look at Interstellar


Journey to the Vredefort crafter will be now accessible through this month in the Adventuring section of the Crossroads. Once you take the quest, you can finish it any time in the year.

Whoa, so pretty!

In regards to the achievements, it'd be sad to not be able to get them anymore but it seems lots of people were very confused over the event and a new storyline seems nice and fresh to have!
