05/01 New Quests!
Today we've got a few new Hourly Quests and an update to the Quest Log page! Please keep in mind that it may take an hour or two for the new Quests to become available for your account.
We've divided up the Quest Log into three pages for each type of Quest: Hourly, Daily, and Unique. After going through all your helpful feedback, we decided the best course of action was to give the Quests names that were simple and easily understood. We're also working on an improved navigation (coming very soon!) that will help ensure new users can find all these different pages easily!
Unique Quests are now sorted by each "chain" or "storyline" they belong to. This should help keep the page organized better as we move forward with lots more stories to tell!
Kith Update: New Stages & Quotes
It's time to introduce the Hermithog's new Heroic and Tattered Stages! You can find the Heroic Medallion and Tattered Shred in the Headmaster's Office, each with the option to choose the Hermithog's new transformation.
And "speaking of" Kith, we have new Kith Quotes! Your Marketplace notifications will now come with Kith commentary. Anyone without an Active Kith will still receive the default notifications.
Our last update of the day is most intriguing... Piper has installed a camera on her latest game, Stumped! Now you can see your own Active Kith meeting that roly-poly bug for an exciting game.
This new code is based on the ability code that was recently added to the games, so it should work by default. However, we ran into a few snags with caching while testing this, so please clear your cache and reload from the site before reporting any technical difficulties! I've set the link to Stumped (New!) just in case we have any problems due to the new code. In terms of programming, I'm very pleased with where this could lead in the future: maybe your Kith will be able to comment on games, or even "play" along with you! :D Read More »
Recipe Update: Designs
Good morning, everyone! It's a bit early, but Club and I have an update to the Recipes that we're rolling out starting now.
Due to confusion about Hope vs Enchanted Forest Kitchen items, specifically Tools and Recipes, we've created a new Recipe template for the Enchanted Forest. Now you can tell at a glance when a Recipe is made in the Enchanted Kitchen!
We'll also be adding some generic text at the end of descriptions to indicate if a Tool or Recipe are only usable in the Enchanted Kitchen. Read More »
New Items: Drinks!
I don't know what it is about cold weather, but I'm always so thirsty from the dry, freezing air! Lucky for you all, I’ve got just the remedy. After talking with Robin for far longer than necessary, I've convinced her to add the Black Tea Bag to her stock rotation so that you can all make a Cup of Black Tea and Sweet Iced Tea at home.
Robin tells me there’s been some grumbling about microwaving your tea and I realized I have been a little unfair. I haven't been sharing my stock of Instant Coffee Mix, keeping it all for myself! I'm sorry everyone, you all deserve quick coffee like you do quick tea. So now you can make a Mug of Instant Coffee or, if you prefer it cold, an Iced Coffee. Some days, this instant coffee is the only thing keeping me going; it's great.
And of course I know not everyone likes these kinds of drinks, so I also have some sweet new juice recipes as well. Cherry Juice is an uncommon drink, and stains very easily, so be careful. I have no idea when or where I got this Pink Lemonade, but it was mixed in with the bunch so I must’ve simply forgotten...
I’ve also been asked to stock a Bottle of Water for students to carry around, particularly those of you running off into the Tatters and finding new worlds or what have you. Don’t go drinking strange river water! I mean it! That’s how you make yourself sick! Just because Kith can do it, doesn't mean humans should do it too!
Happy New Year!
2016 is ending, and we've made so much progress in such a short time. I'm excited to see what the next year will bring!
To celebrate, we have a few updates to close out the year, including a new game: Stumped! I'll let Piper tell you all about it. I've modified the Paper Airplane game to show your tree count and when you receive a Kith ability point as you play, in the hopes that helps you high-score-happy people! The Memory level-freeze bug still continues to elude me, but I'll keep hunting for a solution.
I've also added a few new Hourly Quests to the Enchanted Forest. They don't celebrate New Year's Eve, but Hope does! Andre has some formal evening wear to offer anyone with enough Shards.
