Refugee Days

Added by Stories of Atys almost 11 years ago

The Refugee Days celebration will soon be here! This is the time that we celebrate having made the perilous journey to secure our future in the new lands and explore the past of our ancient history. Following are some of the special events lined up for Refugee Days*.

Gubunnies: Docile gubunnies appear to spawn about every 5 Jena years and are known to leave special gifts wrapped in decorated yber eggs in random locations throughout the lands. These special gifts are a boon to all homins and therefore, Refugee Days coincides with their spawn. It is unknown where these gubunnies come from and what their plan might be, but whatever it is it can't be bad! Can it?

Scenic Challenges: Exploring is the wanderlust skill that all refugees posses. Without this desire to seek and learn many discoveries would have been left unknown. Throughout the celebration, you can test your visual knowledge of the flora, fauna and landmarks of Atys with 4 different challenges. The level 1 challenge has you searching for Wa Ji-Do throughout the "calmer" regions of Atys starting in Zora. The level 2 challenge starts in Pyr as you hunt for Zekollo through the wilds of the lesser used regions of Atys. Yrkanis is the start of the level 3 challenge where Bevaldo tests your skills in the more formidable areas of Atys. Thoddan's search, the level 4 challenge, starts in Fairhaven and takes you to the most arduous locations on the surface of Atys. To begin a challenge look for the first hint near a city tourist guide. You can only participate in each challenge one time. For all that finish any of the challenges a special gift will be rewarded. An additional surprise will be given to the homin that finishes each level first.

Celebration Outfitter: Don't miss your opportunity to receive a special outfit made especially for the Refugee Days celebration. An outfitter will be traveling around Atys to make 10 lucky homins signature refugee gear. During the celebration the outfitter will oversee various games to determine the winners.

Corrah Egg Hunt: Unravel an ancient folklore tale of Borrah and her daughter Corrah as the tale is recreated for your pleasure. In this modern variation, Corrah's nest has been looted and it is your job to help locate all her eggs and find the one responsible for this dastardly deed!

Petting Zoo: All refugees learn quickly that recognizing the aggressive and non-aggressive creatures can mean the difference between a pleasant stroll and resurrection sickness. Due to the nature of of the agressive critters, we rarely get to see their most striking features, at least not for long. That will soon change as the Magical Menagerie has returned to Atys, in miniature! Check out cute and cuddly pet-sized versions of the most fearsome beasts of Atys.
