50,000 Users Celebration
March Toward 50,000
We are about a thousand users away from a massive landmark -- 50,000 user accounts onsite! This calls for great celebrations -- including the 50,000 Prizebox Field! But… but wait… we must hit 50,000 before the prize field unlocks ;)
The Prizebox Field will be fifty thousand boxes with prizes inside. Users will be able to grab a box every twelve hours until they're all gone. The smallest prize is 50,000 BP and a useful item, so it'll definitely be worth your time to snatch items from it-- and the biggest prizes, well, I'm sure you can imagine.
50,000 Users Referral Contest
Between now and the acceptance of our 50,000th user, the people who refer the most players will receive the following prizes:
$250 USD (or 300 GP)
$150 USD (or 200 GP)
$75 USD (or 100 GP)
50,000 User Celebration Stretch Goals
When the 50,000th user is accepted onsite, a one month counter starts. A month from now, every user will be able to collect a 50k Prizebox from the Advent Calendar with prizes depending on which stretch goals are reached during that month:
If we hit 50,500 before one month... every user will get 100,000 BP
If we hit 51,000 before one month... every user will get 500,000 BP
If we hit 52,000 before one month... every user will get 1 SP
If we hit 55,000 before one month... every user will get a Luna Berries
If we hit 60,000 before one month... every user will get a Blue Crystal Shard and Silver Crystal Shard
If we hit 70,000 before one month... every user will get Lesser Breeding Pebble, Breeding Pebble, and Platinum Breeding Pebble
If we hit 100,000 before one month... every user will get Lotus Egg
These prizes stack! If you hit a certain threshold of users onsite, that level and the prizes below it will be included in the prize box.
The other staff have other celebrations planned for the great moment we hit 50,000 users, so be prepared, more is coming! Also, be sure to keep an eye on the Welcome Back page to see the highest user accounts and how close we are to 50,000 and the opening of the Prizebox Field!

This is your local reporter Sheldon with an eye on Ay's evening weather! A-ah-choo! Excuse me folks--! As you can see out in the field here it's completely frozen over, with temperatures plunging below freezing already. We expect --sniffle-- for heavier snow to fall in all Ay regions overnight, and total snowfall may reach several feet in low-lying areas. Bundle up, Aywas! It's going to be a cold one!
This developing storm system is forecasted to last for the next week, so we'll be sure to keep you all updated. Stock up on those blankets and be sure not to go outside, you don't want to get lost adventuring out in the wilderness!
Beware of any particularly hard hail or ice falling from the sky-- ow! -- including some odd coins that residents are already stockpiling for some reason. Strange weather causes strange behavior it seems!
Stay tuned for more information during the week on the blizzard, there might be more to come in this storm!

The art gallery has been judged!
The theme was Design a Book Cover, and I must say, I wish these were all real books so I could read them!
Here are our featured winners:
The current theme is Real Life Pet Dress-up*.
This is a starred theme, so anyone may enter, regardless of if you've won recently!
For this contest, yes, you have an excuse to dress up your furry friend as an Aywas pet/something Aywas-related.
Be sure to include a piece of paper or something with your name and ID on it visible in the photo. :3

Our favorite wispy souls seem to be sensing something on the horizon.
You have a little over 24 hours to collect all the souls you want to get, as they will be disappearing after May 19th at 11:59 p.m.
After that, you will have an additional 24 hours to turn in all souls that you may be hoarding. Your leaders will be accepting souls through May 20th at 11:59 p.m.

Accidents and newbies!
Uh oh, someone broke a fancy mirror! D:
You can pick up the restocking shattered trinket in the Explore Shop.
Why would you want a silly old broken mirror filled with bad luck, you ask?
Because it works just like the Clover Stone, except it attracts very common and common pets in Adventure!
(If you have both a Clover Stone and a Broken Mirror equipped, the mirror will dominate.)
This idea was developed directly from a user suggestion, so thank you for the idea. :3
I also wanted to take a moment to spotlight a new Think Tank thread I posted earlier this week, which centers on the Newbie Tutorial. Click here to share your thoughts how we can improve the tutorial for new players!
