30 Days of Twilight [2008]

Postby Ryme » Tue Oct 14, 2008 7:39 am

I'm officially announcing the upcoming nonsensically named "30 Days of Twilight" to celebrate the upcoming 1-year anniversary of the Twilight Heroes beta. Starting this Halloween, and running through the entire month of November, BIG THINGS will be afoot in the city of Twilight.

Among the things you can expect during those 30 days:
  • At least one new quest
  • A properly working verison of PvP
  • At least 2 "holiday" one-day events
  • Some massive contests and giveaways, courtesy of some of the other players
  • Special events on Halloween, the actual anniversary
  • Some kind of contest here on the forums
  • Lots of little updates and interface adjustments that are long overdue
  • Some kind of special anniversary memento. (Hint: log in and play on Halloween--that's 31 October to anyone who doesn't know when it is. Seriously. You've been warned now.)
  • Possibly some earlier content if I can get things ready sooner than the 31st
  • 1 new Item of the Month (well, yeah, we always have them, but ...)
  • Cake, too! Lots of moist, juicy cake. Er, not juicy. Frosted?
  • And more!

It's kind of hard to believe that it's already been almost a year. That's just crazy.

There will be a giveaway as Ryme mentioned in the month of Nov most likely over one of the weekends.

The Tenkplus account that has been a donation dump account for most of the last year will be opening up the coffers and giving back to the player base.

The most fair way we think to distribute these items will be in raffle, some tickets (numbers) given out in chat, others in the forums. We will try to spread out the chances as much as possible so that most people can get in on the fun.

What are we (PFE) giving away you ask? Well this is a short list of the highlights (and yes the (number) is the amount to give away)!
IotM and Rares
Roderick's Boots (1)
Amazing Technicolor Dreampants (1)
VHF-1 Fighter (1)
Wolley's Index (1)
Fighting Club (2)
King's boomerang (3)
Ring of Fellowship (3)
Zorromir's double tower shield (3)
boomstick (7)
Ebon Eye of the Deep (3)
Ultimate Aviator Goggles (3)
filthy sock puppet (12)
corrupt amulet (6)
special wooden cup (15)

And thanks to a very wonderful player who for the moment is going to be unnamed we will be giving away a PEGASUS as well!

Check the memento case on Tenkplus as the month of Oct. goes on we hope to be adding to this collection of items all month as well as many other things.

Wow, you're really outdoing yourself, Ryme! Sexy new graphic. I didn't think we'd be seeing this many new changes so quickly!

Corrupt Shadow gets most of the credit for the new logo. He demonstrated some excellent photoshopping skills and a steady patience in the face of a very picky Ryme while we worked to get the image right. I'd been saving it for a busy night (like election night) where I wouldn't have the time to do anything more creative on my own.

Yeah, Ryme was a picky bastard. ;) ;)

Okay, so I guess the 30 days is wrapping up. Other than the very first promised item (a new quest), I managed to hit all the rest. Next year I'm going to pace myself better or set more modest goals, because 30 days is too long to be that aggressive about development. Maybe we'll have anniversary week, or something.

I am still working on that new quest, and it's my priority for December.

Anyway, hope everyone had fun.

I am fully excited and pleased. The recipe contest was most surprising, and great. If you think you need a week to create a new zone, and a new quest, and do other things, instead of a whole month, I get it...

It was great, well done and thanks for all the hard work. :)

I really don't like fawning forum sycophants posting "gosh admin you're so super at everything" (*cough* Torn City *cough*) but sometimes it's got to be said. So, erm, gosh Ryme you're so super at everything!

Officially bumped down from sticky status, as it's over. Also tagged it with [2008] in case.

Enjoy your day.
