Alganon October Newsletter
Greetings from the QOL dev team.
Pumpkin Smash 2012
As is tradition, each year the citizens of Alganon gather together in the capital cities to celebrate the season and enjoy its festivities. The high point of these festivities spells excitement and treats for people of all ages and disaster for the clean streets of Asheran and Xanjuix Karr. The annual Pumpkin Smash has returned!
Doomgourds (pumpkins) have been placed around both main capital cities (Xanjuix Karr and Asheran). Break open a gourd by attacking it to receive candy and other goodies such as armor dyes and the rare Horseless Headsman. With every pumpkin smashed you'll have a chance to win the following:
- Repair Tokens and Dyes
- Halloween Masks and Candies
- The Horseless Headsman (Ghost Pet)
- Bag o' Bones (Skeleton Pet)
In addition to the items above you also have a chance to find a rare Golden Ticket in each Doomgourd you smash. These tickets are each worth 100 Tribute when traded in to a GM after the event is completed (please see the forums for turn-in specifics)! The event runs from October 29th at noon PST through noon PST on November 1st. As with last year the tickets have no limit and each player can hold as many as they find, so good luck to all and let's get smashing!
With the completion of Alganon's first main expansion on the horizon, we wanted to update everyone on the status of the Rise of the Ourobani and show you all a little of what we've been working on. The expansion is on track and and we are busy testing and adjusting much of the new content in order to get ready for its release. We will be releasing more specific information in the coming months. We know our players are anxiously awaiting new content and we are extremely grateful for all of your continued support while we wrap up our labor of love. We're extremely excited to get this content out to everyone as soon as we're able and can't wait to see many Ourobani running around the world!
