Happy Rainbowstorm Renaissance 2024!!!!

Posted 4 days ago :: Last edited 2 days ago by Key

Happy Rainbowstorm Renaissance, everyxyn!

Happy Rainbowstorm Renaissance! The rumblings of the rainbowstorms have begun and daring xyns are once again out storm chasing! The rainbow lightning and warmer air has all of Lunerest excited. Xyns all over gather to watch the brilliant storm displays, chase the storms or just sit and watch the rain with a good book and cup of tea. There's often games, dares and competitions going on during the storms and xyns all over are preparing for the bursts of flowers and spring after the storm.

 Get to this prompt by going to World -> Prompts -> Event Prompts 

Fields of rainbow

Looking up, your xyn notices some suspicious clouds above... The Rainbowstorm Renaissance clouds are usually multi-coloured but this year, the clouds are straight up glittery rainbow coloured!
Perturbed; your xyn watches closely as the clouds move in. Suddenly, the sky seems to open up and the ground shakes with the tremendous BOOM of thunder. Rainbow lightning streaks rapidly across the sky and rainbow-coloured rain pours down at intense rates. The wind whips up and your xyn has to use their magic to ground themselves. Your xyn hears cries as pixyns are swept up in the intense storm. Knights are hurriedly scrambling to help the endangered xyns.

After the chaos of the storm, the ground started to rumble once more and to everyxyn's suprise huge, vast blooms of rainbow flowers burst forth. More flowers than anyxyn has ever seen in years!
The pixyns are having trouble keeping up with all of the flowers! They need help tending to them, harvesting them and bracing against the intense rainbowstorms this year.

Will your xyn lend a paw to help in the rainbow fields? The pixyns will reward you with a nice little bundle of rainbow flowers!

Happy Frostfall Festival + New Year!

Posted 2 months ago :: Last edited 2 months ago by Key

 

Happy Frostfall Festival! The xyns of Lunerest are getting used to the chilly weather! There's lots of snow and ice around during this time, so many snow/ice-sculpting contests are held! Xyns take great pride in their art, and there's competitions with wonderful prizes throughout the month. Xyns also celebrate the falling of new snow by having get-togethers and singing songs. Sometimes xyns will leave offerings for the snow gods on top of huge mountains! However, during the winter months, the wilds get more dangerous. There's predators looking to prey on xyns during this time so xyns are extra vigilant to bring trained guards when going out!

Rules/Item Changes

Lunerest has been busier than ever, thank you so much, everyone! With ARPG growth comes growing pains, so we're going to be issuing some balance changes:

-Knight Quest buff: backgrounds will now earn +3 charms instead of +2 charms
-Shading bonus: shaded pieces will now earn +1 charm (+1 festival currency for the monthly festival prompt)
-New rule for breeding: no inbreeding (this was an oversight on Key's part, it was meant to be part of the rules but was never added, xyns who are related to each other are not able to produce an egg together canonically)
-Jar of Vapour change: jars of vapour will no longer be earnable via prompts, they can be bought in the charm shop or moonstone shop with a monthly limit of 2 per month per person (breeding requires too little investment right now, so we're moving things around to see if we can take some of the strain off of Key)
-Removal of breeding prompts: vapour prompts are being removed since the jar of vapour will be available in the charm and moonstone shops now
-New general prompts: we're recycling "Connection" and "Dating Sim" into general prompts as well as adding "Profession"
-Plushie Buff: since the "Generalist" plushie now has more requirements to be earned, the bonus charms have been upped from 20 charms to 35 charms
-Knight Titles: Your xyn can now earn titles related to their knight status! You can put in a claim with the title you're looking to get added. Please list the titles you are claiming, you may only claim titles related to achievements your xyn has already done. For example, if your xyn is a royal knight, a scout and a royal knight captain, you may claim each title for that one xyn!
-Double Trouble: Reduced in price by 5 charms.

---

Due to these changes, for charm-earning prompts submitted in the past month, you may retroactively claim the charms you would have gotten from the knight quest adjustment or shading bonus. We will not be manually hunting down every prompt, you must submit a claim with a link to each prompt you want to retroactively claim charms for as well as the amount of charms you are claiming. We will not be doing charm calculations for you this time. (This does *not* apply to retroactive festival prompts.)

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue balancing Lunerest to make it fun for everyone! ❤

New Extensions and Features

New Criteria feature when submitting certain prompts! We are rolling this out so it may not be available for all prompts yet. Click the "Add Criterion" button (right below the comment box) and fill out/toggle the boxes according to your submission! Try it out on your next Brighthollow Banquet prompt! ;D

Titles!

-We're adding earnable titles to Lunerest! We've added the knight ones as additional prizes for those who complete knight quests but we're also experimenting with adding limited edition ones!

Titles are still a work in progress, we are working on custom code to make them better.

Temporary Down Time

Posted 5 months ago :: Last edited 5 months ago by Key

Hey everyone! In case you aren't in the Discord to see the announcment, we are temporarily closing claims and prompts for the site rollover this month. We have so much to implement and it's going to effect quite a few prompts! Thank you so much for your patience, see you all tomorrow! (⌐■_■)

Leafdusk Fete and Free MYO Month + Referrals!

Posted 6 months ago :: Last edited 6 months ago by Key


During the Leafdusk Fete, the plants around Lunerest are fading from their normal colours to bright yellows and oranges. The xyns celebrate the changing of the seasons with the Leafdusk Fete! The weather is cooler and the days are getting shorter. Many xyns enjoy this change from the hot months to the cooler ones. During the Leafdusk Fete there’s always a huge scavenger hunt! Ryu and Yuhi hide dawnberry flowers among the changing leaves and xyns that bring one to them are rewarded with sweets! There’s a huge sky-dance among the changing leaves that happens every night around bonfires. Xyns start to sell cozier accessories like scarves and earmuffs and there’s a craft market that starts up! There’s always good food and merriment to be had during the Leafdusk Fete!

Happy 4 years of Lunerest!!!

Note from Key: I am eternally grateful for everyone's love, support and enthusiasm for Lunerest. Every day I am excited to wake up and work on new things, interact with the amazing community and enjoy playing in the huge world we've built together. I am looking forward to many more, I hope you all enjoy your MYOs and I look forwards to partying with you all!

As usual, we are doing a free MYO month for September! There is a new MYO box in Spright's Charm Shop.

We're also doing a referral bonus! This month- if you refer a friend and have them sign up, you will both receive an envelope from the queens!

To claim your envelopes, please have the referrer submit a claim with the username of the person they recruited.

New Traits 108-image.png

Limited:

Tapestry Ears: Long, horizontal ears with fur dangling off of them. (Fur can be short or long)
Wisp Fur: Magical fur that resembles wisp-shapes! It gently flows upwards like real fire.
Crescent Horns: Horns that are shaped like crescents.

Alchemy:

Size-Shifter: Allows your xyn to temporarily change the size of their body! It requires effort so it cannot be maintained for long periods of time but xyns can size-shift either parts of their body or their whole body! (For example: making their wings small or making their legs extra long).

Rare:

Cotton Puff Ears: Large ears filled with significant amounts of fluff.
Standard Ears: will now be a rare pixyn trait.
