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

January Event - Great Hunger


Horrible rumours have been circulating for a few days, and sadly, they appear to be true - prey is scarce due to the snow-induced migrations, and the carnivores within the surrounding African lands are suffering from Great Hunger. With this month's event, you must all work together to create a great food resource for the hungriest lions to ensure your species will survive! Other animals are suffering too...! Maybe you can "help" them die out to have more food for yourself? Or you may prefer to save them...?

Event Areas
Food Pile: add all food that you can to the pile and unlock free hunger boosts for the rest of the month! You can consume food from the pile once per day per lion. Added in 2019, a "Feed All" option will appear within the Food Pile if you have the "Feed All, Play All" tool active on your account.

How can you help? You can deposit a carcass to the pile straight from your hoard or the food stack!

Note: This only affects your choices on what to do with your food and how you work as a community. It does not affect hunting, etc.

Carrion Shop: the second bar is boosted by killing event-exclusive scavengers, which unlocks a special shop that uses Silver Beetles as currency! Both bars have three tiers, however the Carrion Shop has four tiers in total.

Carrion Eaters and Carrion Shop
The "Carrion Eaters defeated" bar will raise based on your actions in Explore with all event-related explore encounters. As the tiers raise, more things will happen in Explore! Tiers 1, 2, and 3 will unlock more and more encounters.

Vultures, starving animals, and scavengers will be pesky annoyances, so you can decide if you're going to be evil and kill them, or be nice and rid them from these lands. Yes - some encounters do affect karma!

The Carrion Shop will open when you unlock this bar. Due to everyone having free food from the Food Pit, we realise you guys will be mostly donating and selling your food to earn SB.

This shop is different from other events - the prices are in Silver Beetles (SB). This is a great SB sink that will help deflate food prices, while not being mandatory to buy from. It contains more than just decors, including Lion Meat in Tier 3! Yay!

Remember - you can tear some carcasses into meat chunks!

Leather Beetles? icon_dermestid.png
You will gain a Leather Beetle for almost every battle won from creatures during the Great Hunger event. As tiers open, there will be many new encounters in Explore that will let you collect Leather Beetles!

* Leather Beetles can be spent in a special shop called the Boneyard.
* The Boneyard will unlock when both bars reach Tier 1, and it will unlock further as both bars progress.
* The Boneyard is a little different from normal shops. It will let you Dig for 2% energy to find wares, or you can Donate bones and skulls (amusement items) to do the same! Every Dig/Donate will show you a few items that you can purchase for Leather Beetles.
* Items that you find will stay in the Boneyard so long as you do not Dig/Donate again. When you do, new items will replace the previous ones.
* Boneyard donating will take any bones and skulls from your hoard. If you want to save some for crafting, playing, trading, etc., we recommend to bury them, put them in trades, or use them up.
* Some items are exclusive to Digging or Donating - you can get different results from each!


2021 Changes
* The Carrion Shop will feature new backgrounds and decors.
* The Boneyard will feature new backgrounds and decors.
* The Storyline will reward you with a new set of applicators.
* More event decors (shops and storyline alike) might be introduced in the update on January 8th, as we got a little busy with the sparkly update.

January's Daily Quest and Story
This is a small addition to the event that focuses on daily quests in order to help you farm currency and fun rewards.

Launching on January 5th, a special NPC will appear in the EVENT tab to give you daily quests. We've decided to give January a tiny novel, similar to what Wenet had, with a few steps requiring a rollover in order to progress. If you join in the last days of January, you might not be able to finish the novel.

The story is separated into 3 stages, with each novel unlocking on specific dates: January 5th is the beginning, January 10th has a tiny expansion to dailies, and January 20th is the finale with a player's choice! We will try to make it so they unlock at rollover and not midnight, so there isn't any timezone discrimination. :D

The final choice will only affect the achievement, karma, and one reward you receive. If you're not sure what to do, please visit the official Wiki to find out what the best choice for you is!

The final choice will not stop daily quests!

Be sure to utilise our official Wiki to the fullest during this month! You may also find the January storyline Wiki page helpful.

2021 Changes
Applicator: Hyena Spots Heavy, Applicator: Hyena Spots Scarce, Applicator: Hyena Stripes Heavy, Applicator: Hyena Stripes Scarce, and The Hyena base applicator will be retired to Tier 4 of the Carrion Shop at a high price.

There will be a new reward at the end of the novel to replace them. Along with Applicator: Hyena Blots Heavy and Applicator: Hyena Blots Scarce, we're introducing Applicator: Lycaon Heavy and Applicator: Lycaon Heavy Inverted!

Applicator: Lycaon Heavy
Applicator: Lycaon Heavy Inverted

Thank you for your votes in the past year's polls regarding these markings. We're launching this type with a Heavy variation and Inverted type, and we're curious about how you'll like them! You might also notice a new marking colour with themβ€”Resin! The colour matched the marking set a lot. If you enjoy this colour, we may add more recolours of it in future!
