❄️ 🌸 Seasonal Update ☀️ 🍂

Posted 2 weeks ago :: Last edited 2 weeks ago by Sleepy

════════════════╡✦ ❄️ 🌸 ☀️ 🍂

Hello everyone, we hope you're having a lovely new year so far!

We have an exciting change to share. Thanks to the latest bug fixes we're able to launch a big change we've had planned! Going forward we will be having seasonal rotations live every season. Things like seasonal crafting, shops, bonuses and seasonal gift art will no longer be tied to events and instead have set times that they will open and close yearly.

The current rotational dates are as planned:

❄️ Winter: December 1st to February 28th
🌸 Spring: March 1st - May 31st (CURRENTLY IN DEVELOPMENT...)
☀️ Summer: June 1st - August 31st
🍂 Autumn: September 1st - November 30th

Though there's only a bit over a month left of winter, we will be launching these changes live today, with winter crafting, shop, and bonuses closing in a month on March 1, 2023 2:59 AM Site-time.

Quick Links: ✨

Winter Merchant  ⚒️
Seasonal Crafting Recipes  ✍️
Winter Gift Art 🎁

Also, as a thank you for your patience we've restocked a free winter gift, so be sure to claim that before the season ends! 🎁 

════════════════╡✦ 🌸 Spring Approaches...

Alongside this new change, we are also in the process of working on including spring as one of our seasonal rotations! There is currently a lot in development for this such as new traits and items, which involves a lot of asset art! For full transparency, due to other things being worked on, it's currently uncertain if we'll be able to have this live for this spring, but the rest of the seasonal rotations will go live as planned!

As winter once again spreads across the Celestial Seas the mysterious Giftbull is sighted hiding amongst the snow, sneaking within the alleyways and leaping from building to building.  In the dead of night they quietly leave behind gifts for others to find. Leave a gift on your doorstep when the Giftbull is in town and somehow it will always make its way to where it needs to go, and in return you may wake to find a gift left behind for you.

If you no longer feel comfortable using the website following this update please contact staff and we can close your account at your request. 

We appreciate everyone's understanding of this change!

Thank you for reading everyone. We hope you enjoy all the new updates and changes to the site! A HUGE THANKS to Newt for helping us immensely to get all of these updates live and working! 

Thank you everyone for sitting tight while we got everything ready! There is much more to come this year. >:)
