Spring Promotion 2020
Between April and June of 2020, a reactivation promotion was run to encourage returning players. The promotion would give an account premium access for 90 days if it met the eligibility requirement. Along with this were some no-additional-cost events for all players.
The promo was extended on May 25th and ran through the end of June 2020.
There were some special in-game events with this promotion. These are scheduled to run through June 30, 2020:
|Day of the Week||Promotion||Notes|
|Sunday||Bonus to maps||You will see an increased amount of treasure maps dropping from monsters.|
|Monday||Bonus to REXP||Increased rates for Rested Experience. (4x rate, versus normal 3x rate)|
|Tuesday||Bonus to REXP||Increased rates for Rested Experience. (4x rate)|
|Wednesday||Bonus to REXP||Increased rates for Rested Experience. (4x rate)|
|Thursday||Bonus to coins||Monsters will drop more cash.|
|Friday||Bonus to scrolls||You will see an increased amount of spell scrolls dropping from monsters.|
|Saturday||Bonus to gems||The gems that monsters drop will be worth more.|
- The BONUS command can be used to check the status of active Bonus Events. Note that Rested Experience Bonuses are not tracked by the bonus command.
In addition to these events, we have pushed the revamp of our Quest system up to the top of the pile. This is ready to go (04/06/2020) and will be opening the new quest nexus up for players tonight!
QUEST CLAIM will spawn a quest orb for you for FREE, and you can do it once per RL hour. This will be Premium only until 4/9 -- will auto open to all subs at midnight Wednesday night / Thursday morning. F2P cannot access the system at this time, but we'll be adding the orbs to the SimuCoin store on the website in the future for everyone after the promo preview ends.
This week, we're reopening Akigwe's Legacy. Each week, we hope to add another quest to the nexus for you. The incidental and end prizes have been removed from these events - it's meant to just offer you an experience to share with your friends - and I've put a couple of promotional items in the treasure room instead. Once this promo period ends, these items will be removed and we'll finish the last part of the quest revamp, which is to refresh the treasure available.

The medals from the eight quests are part of a "collection", and assemble into a promotional gift (an electrum kathla of eight incongruous medals depicting adventures of yore). While the medals (and figurines) are transferrable, the kathla is bonded, and is not meant to be sellable or transferrable.
Finally, I'm periodically running chats on Zoom. There's no schedule for them, it's usually spur of the moment when I have some free time to sit and chat with people. With so many of us "stuck" in the house for an extended period, it's nice to see faces and laugh together! Watch Twitter and/or the player-owned Discord server for links to these chat sessions.
A few shops have been opened for the event:
- Northern Exposure Clothiers
- Usk'elneg Pell
- Monkeying Around
- This Little Piggy
- Flower Gazebo
- Desert Delights
- Poetry in Motion
- Strawberry Patch
