Candy Canes!

Site Update

Goto News Post

collectable_candycane5pack.pngcollectable_candycane10pack.png

The Candy Cane 5 Pack and Candy Cane 10 Pack have both been added to Famine's Feast for snowflakes.
(They can't be in the Seasonal Shop due to the premium discount setting there.)

Also, Slash wants me to be nice or something (gosh), so we've added the 10 Pack to the GP shop for 1 GP.

Enjoy!

Make sure you check out the snowball raffle posts below as well. :3

Snowball Battl--Raffle!

Site Update

Goto News Post

Good morning!
So, I hear it's going to be a white Aymas weekend. :3

magic_snowball.pngmagic_snowball.pngmagic_snowball.pngmagic_snowball.pngmagic_snowball.png

That's right--it's time for some Snowball raffles!
I'll be starting a few different raffles today, all of which will take snowballs as tickets, and they will all be drawn some time on December 30th!

The first one will be starting shortly. c:
Good luck!

*Merry Aymas!*

Site Update

Goto News Post

collectable_wreath.png20307816.pngcollectable_wreath.png

lunaris_santa.png

Ho, ho, ho! Merry Aymas to all!
The Seasonal Shop has opened its doors and is inviting you in with sweet treats and pets galore!

collectable_snowflake.pngcollectable_candycane.pngcollectable_snowflake.png

The Seasonal Shop will be open through January 3, 2014 at 11:59 p.m., a full week (plus a little extra)!
You can adventure in the Holiday Lane until December 31st at 11:59 p.m., giving you 'til the end of the month.

Now grab a cup of cheer and curl up in a comfy chair, because I'm about to give you all of the secrets that the Seasonal Shop has in store for us this year. :3

fauna_polarbear.pngfauna_snowman.pngfauna_arcticfox.png

Our snowy forecast attracted some arctic friends! You and your pets can now enjoy companionship from three new fauna--a Polar Bear cub, a loving Snowman, and brisk Arctic Fox!

We also have a second troupe of fauna, but they're not quite as... cuddly?

fauna_strippedsnowman.pngfauna_strippedlizzard.pngfauna_strippedcandycane.pngfauna_strippeddeer.png

You might recognize these guys as some of the monsters from Holiday Lane, just considerably smaller.
All of them have been turned into "stripped" fauna since losing their menacing monster status and shrinking down to mischievous pet companions. *wink*

If you've been playing Aywas for a while, you'll know that all of these monsters originally had typos in their names and were identified as Stripped instead of Striped. This was one of the few typos on the site that made staff giggle and therefore stuck around, but it was cleaned up this season to reflect the correct word. However, we have immortalized this little joke in fauna form and hope you like these silly things! <3

Moving on to more serious matters--food!

foodenergy_fircake.pngfoodhunger_popcorngarland.pngfoodhunger_simpleyulelog.pngfoodenergy_cranberryjelloshot.pngfoodenergy_gingerbreadhouse.png

What's a holiday without a smorgasbord of edible delights?! Not much of a party, that's what.
Thankfully, we have plenty of energy and hunger foods to go around!

On the platter above, you'll find a Fir Cake (regenerating energy item), Popcorn Garland (be careful, there might be pine needles on it), a Simple Yule Log, a tasty Cranberry Jello Shot (warning: contains alcohol), and a perfect Gingerbread House.

If you're looking for something edible, or rather, drinkable, but want to alter your appearance, there are a few elixirs I'd recommend from the top shelf!

magic_lightpolepotion.png

The illuminating Light Pole Potion will turn your active pet into a random coloration from the Holiday Lane!

magic_jinglebellpotion.png

This shining Jingle Bell Potion (which makes a little jingle jangle when tipped) will change your active pet into one of the pet colorations from the Seasonal Shop.

magic_wintermintbox.png

Yes, though this might look like a pretty wintergreen box with a creature hidden inside, it works like a potion and will change your active pet into one of 8 hybrid colorations exclusive to the Winter Mint Box. All of the pet possibilities are listed for your convenience in the description, but here's a little sample of what you'll find inside:

miizu_oldworldsanta.pngdrazi_snowpixie.pngkitsera_reindeer.png

Want a little more control over your pet's transformation?
Then you might be interested in one of our magical custom creators!

magic_wreathpotion.png

The Wreath Potion will allow you to create one of the Holiday 2013 shopkeepers with up to 30% edits.

We do have a tiny hiccup here, though. Our wonderful site artist was unfortunately having some technical issues and was unable to deliver the final shopkeepers to us, but we are expecting them tomorrow. To give you an idea of what they'll look like, we will have a: Grinchy Itoa, Gingerbread Gael and Holiday Unus. I would suggest holding off on purchasing the potion, though, until we announce the images/PSDs just so you make sure you're buying exactly what you want. :3

magic_icerocks.png

Mined from the coldest parts of Holiday Lane, we have unearthed some Ice Rocks, which will allow you to create a Winter Soli shopkeeper custom with up to 30% edits! If you are a veteran player or know your Aywas history, this creature will look familiar to you:

winterkeeper.png
Click here to download the PSD!
(This was recreated at 300 x 300 pixels, so you'll want to size down to 200 x 200 before uploading.)

If you're looking to spice things up a bit, though, you might like one of our new breeding items!

magic_winterscarf.pngmagic_tangledlights.png

The Winter Scarf and Tangled Lights are both breeding add-ons compatible with BC and HBC breedings.

The Winter Scarf will tell the breeding artist to add snow or cold-weather edits to the offspring. Whether it be piles of snow ready for a snowball fight, icicles reminiscent of a frozen iceland, or enough scarves and mittens to protect against a blizzard, this add-on is perfect for those that savor subzero temperatures.

Using Tangled Lights will tell the breeding artist to add some festive light edits to the offspring, perfect for decorating any surface. You'll have to figure out how to untangle these first, however... that's one daunting pile of holiday cheer.

Now that your pets are all set, you probably want some festive garb to match. :3

clothing_holidaydaywallpaper.pngclothing_holidaynightwallpaper.png

Keep holiday memories alive all year 'round with the Holiday Day and Holiday Night wallpapers! These are both wearable backgrounds for your HA.

collectable_snowmanwardrobe.png

This chilly Snowman Wardrobe is filled with piles of snow, but also 6 wearable items for your HA!

clothing_snowmanstickarms.pngclothing_snowmanhat.pngclothing_snowmanface.pngclothing_snowmancarrotnose.pngclothing_snowmanbuttons.pngclothing_snowmanbody.png

You'll find stick arms, a hat, face (eyes and mouth), a carrot nose, buttons, and of course a snowball body!
If you are going to wear this adorable ensemble, please check the weather first and keep an eye on the Lepu population in the area. We don't want any melted HAs or ones with missing noses!
(You can check out the wearables through Preview Wardrobe.)

To help you protect your holiday haul, we also have a trio of weaponry!

weapon_hollyandivyshield.pngweapon_polarbeargauntlets.pngweapon_toboggan.png

The Holly and Ivy Shield, Polar Bear Gauntlets and Toboggan will all offer you freeze resistance in battle, with varying stats in power, toughness, and speed.

If you are not a fan of the holidays and despise everything cheery, don't grind up all of your candy canes just yet!

collectable_lockedpresent.png

The Locked Present will unlock the forum title/achievement "Grinchy."
Enjoy? D:

collectable_candycane.pngcollectable_snowflake5pack.png

We also have options to exchange your snowflakes for candy canes and vice versa.
I'll also be adding the 5 and 10 packs of candy canes for your convenience. :3

And, last but not least, we have a plethora of holiday pets that would absolutely love to find a forever home this season!

ozoa_ornament.pngusaro_polarplush.pngheggal_christmaspudding.png
lepu_evergreencape.pngmelo_winterscarf.pngkoaf_gingerbreadhouse.png

Remember, though you can buy these pets individually, you can also grab a Jingle Bell Potion if you want to try your luck at turning your active pet into one of these 18!

Please note that items/pets may take around 60 seconds to show up in your inventory/lair since you are "crafting" them with your Candy Canes and Snowflakes!

*Let me know if you encounter any bugs/problems with anything from the shop. I'll be hanging around for a bit. c:*

We hope you enjoy the goodies!
Thank you for celebrating another Aymas with us, and we wish you all a very happy holiday season online and off, no matter what you celebrate.

collectable_wreath.png20307816.pngcollectable_wreath.png

And to all, a good night! :3

Seasonal Shop Warning!

Site Update

Goto News Post

collectable_a-snowflake.png

Evening, folks!
Our elves are busily working behind the scenes to get the Seasonal Shop shined up, so I have a few disclaimers to announce while they're adding finishing touches. :3

This is your standard warning to not make any purchases from the Seasonal Shop as we are inputting pets/items, as they could change price or function. As always, refunds or exchanges will not be offered for premature purchases.

Thank you!

(Also, if you have any favorite holiday/winter music suggestions, please note it in the comments below! I'm always looking for new tunes to have in the background when I do stuff like this. XD)
