The November event launches on November 1st at 00:00am LDT, and will end on November 30th at 11:59pm LDT. All unused event currency will be stored on your account until next year.

November Event - Whispering Ancestors

This month, a group of nomadic lion shamans have arrived from faraway lands to offer their services.

Humans aren't the only ones that believe ancestors are linked spiritually to the living. Some lions believe that, during a trance, they can speak to the spirits of those who have passed into the afterlife. You can gain Piety for the ancestors by doing deeds for the lion shamans. In return, you will be granted spiritual rewards. Your Piety might unlock something special, so make sure to respect the spirits, and they will provide. Alongside this, you can gather many herbs in Explore for crafting, nesting, quests, and for your battle beetles!

Visit the Shamans

On the EVENT page, you can pay a visit to three different lion shamans. Each shaman is a bit different and will provide unique daily quests for you. You can fulfill up to 3 deeds per day for them, and in return, you can gain Piety - between 6 to 9 Piety per day at maximum. The ancestors of lions who have passed will reward the lions who live and show piousness. You can exchange these Piety points for body and mind enhancements.

We believe the rewards will make all players happy, no matter what part of their lion's body they strive to improve.


Fossil Crafting

In Explore, you will find many fossil items! They can only be used for crafting in November.


This feature is accessible via Monkey Business's Crafting section. It unlocks when the Piety bar reaches Tier 1. You can craft multiple fossils, some of multiple types, into decors and applicators.

New 2020 Content: There's a new set of 4 extinct African animals for you to restore to life in a smaller, safer form, as well as a unique decor!

15x Ancient Fossil
15x Ancient Fossil
15x Cracked Fossil
15x Crumbled Fossil
Jewelry: Charming Chains [Ammonite]
10x Ammonite Fossil

You can also craft a new base!


The Cretaceous base is Golden Dark Countershaded Special and is tied to Marbled skin. This was suggested by Jasparrow (#41652), thank you!
Cretaceous Body
10x Ammonite Fossil, 10x Ancient Fossil, 10x Cracked Fossil, 10x Crumbled Fossil

The matching Cretaceous mane colour will appear within the Shaman Pit - more details later!


Gem Crafting

The gems to be crafted for this month are Gem: Carnelian, Gem: Fire Opal, Gem: Moss Agate, Gem: Nuummite, Gem: Rough Opal, and Gem: Sparkling Opal.

New gems added this year for November are Gem: Bloodstone and Gem: Cat's Eye.

Because the new gems were introduced very recently, they cannot be crafted into applicators this year. We're starting with fresh gem applicators in February 2021 as usual! Bloodstone and Cat's Eye will be craftable in November 2021.

This feature is accessible via Monkey Business's Crafting area! It unlocks when the Piety bar reaches Tier 2.

This year, Moss Agate can be crafted into a new mane colour.

Shards: Moss Agate
30x Gem: Moss Agate
Jewelry: Black Ornate Blindfold

Visit the Shaman Shop!

In the Shaman Shop, you can exchange Scarab Beetles (abbreviated as ScB) for some fancy items. The more tiers you unlock through event bars, the more fun stuff will appear within the shops!

Tier 3

* A new base applicator: Windfall! Suggested by dogepauus [Clean Fringe] (#148444), thank you!


The genetics for the new Windfall base are Red Medium Solid Special, and it's tied to Orange skin.


We really liked the markings that the suggestion included. Even though November's never had a matching marking applicator before, we've decided to make an exception. When Tier 2 opens, you can craft the Windfall Markings applicator, much like gem items!

Windfall Markings
50x Carnelian, 50x Fire Opal, 50x Nuummite, 100x Underbrush, 10x Phantom Quartz

The mane applicators for both Cretaceous and Windfall are only found via Ancestral Whispering Rewards, unlocked in Tier 3.


Piety Bar

The Piety bar counts the total Piety gained throughout Lioden's lands. It unlocks tiers that provide lions with some awesome stuff from the Shaman Shop and the Shaman Pit.

Note: markings added via Piety will be applied in the first free slot available, so plan your designs carefully!

New 2020 Content
* The event NCL markings released in February, April, and September 2020 have been added to the Piety Ancestry's list!

Shaman Pit

This mysterious pit is being prepared by the shamans. The more piety that lions show, the stronger the ritual's effect will become!

New 2020 Content
Whispers in Tier 3 will have a chance at dropping Windfall Body (the Windfall base applicator), Windfall Fur (the Windfall mane colour applicator), and Cretaceous Fur (the Cretaceous mane colour applicator), along with all prior years' Whisper items.


Within Explore, you might notice herbs that you can collect, or encounters you can interact with. Some of these are specific for quests, but won't do much if you're not on that particular quest. If you're not on any quest and you meet a Tsavo lion, nothing besides a battle will occur. However, if you're on a quest to defeat a Tsavo lion and you win, the quest will be fulfilled, and you can return to the shamans to complete your deed!

New 2020 Content
* Each Shaman NPC has received 3 new quests to offer to you, with all of them requiring interactions in Explore.
* 12 new encounters have been added. For each NPC, there are 4 themed encounters. 3 will show you an option if you're on a matching quest, and one will be a similar "dud". If you are not on the quest, you can enjoy other interactions with these!
* November event encounter rates have been raised!


You might notice you can once again turn your carcasses into Rawhide. Rawhide is required for some Shaman Quests. It can also be used for crafting within the Monkey Business's Crafting area!



Remember that the website (and the admins, if needed) will run a mass Rabies removal once November begins. If it needs some extra attention, please give our coders a few hours to wake up as we're in a different timezone than Lioden's server!

Be sure to utilise our official Wiki to the fullest during this month!

NOTE: Please keep in mind that bases and mane colours will appear within the Lion Wardrobe in a few days. The same applies to adult male versions of some decors. We always strive for good quality with our art and we prefer to give the creation process a bit more time, rather than rushing it.
