-STUCK- JUNE EVENT!
Posted on 2021-05-31 23:48:37
The June event launches on June 1st at 00:00am LDT, and will end on June 30th at 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 Apophis decor!

Be sure to utilise the official Lioden Wiki to the fullest! Here is a link to the June event page: https://www.lioden.wiki/june

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! You can find the storyline page here: https://www.lioden.wiki/rise-of-the-serpent

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.

The 2018, 2019, and 2020 reward base applicators will be available to purchase in their respective god's shop.


2021-jun-bases.jpg



Seth will reward you with Sutekh, a Red Light Countershaded Special base, tied to Quartz skin.
* The red desert dunes and their everchanging shapes and patterns reflect in the Sutekh base.

Bast will reward you with Ubaste, a Red Light Solid Special base, tied to Dusky skin.
* With a gentle pastel colour and flunctuating patterns of alabaster skin and flushed lips, Bast's base reflects the feminine side.

Anubis will reward you with Inpu, a Cream Dark Countershaded Special base, tied to Dark skin.
* The base reflects the dark coat of Anubis in his hybrid vessel.

These applicators are called Vestige 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 Ogdoad base! Just like years prior, the component bases are the current storyline reward applicators.
This begins a new set of divine combo bases - a planned total set of three, again.

Ogdoad Factors: Ubaste x Inpu, Ubaste x Sutekh, and Sutekh x Inpu all have the chance to produce the Ogdoad combo base. These three bases can also produce the Ogdoad combo base if they are bred to Ogdoad. Ogdoad bred to itself can also produce Ogdoad.

This new combo base will not work with the old combo bases (Gilded, Sphinx and Rose Gold) as it is not part of their set.

Ogdoad is a Red Medium Countershaded Special combo base, tied to Tawny skin.

2021 Updates and Information
Aside from the storyline rewards, you will find many new decor and background rewards in the shops!

Now, there's something extra you voted for this year, instead of adding new enemies. On June 11th, we will add a new shop dedicated to Apophis. The snake temple will be added separately from the storyline and you will be able to access it anytime, no matter what deity you are aligned with.

We're working hard on the rewards, and we keep getting inspired, so expect a bigger Egyptian content update on 11th than usual - not only for the new shop, but for the usual shops as well!

This will also mean the Recipes for Chaos Snake Scales will be removed on June 11th as the new shop will cover those items, instead. The new shop's currency will be Chaos Snake Scales!

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, as July event wipe is now a priority.

*Technical Note*
The bases will be updated for mutations within the following days.
