Thanksgiving 2012 Turkey Event

Code: Select all

Disaster has struck AGAIN!!!!! After a year without any incident,
the sinister thieves have made an appearance. An even bigger 
disaster than prior years has struck the special Thanksgiving Turkey 
Kitchen  of the Genesis Admin. The sinister thieves have raided 
and they stole not only the turkeys, but the turkey 
stuffing as well! In order to help recover the stolen items, 
the AoE team is distributing separate rune stones of turkey 
and stuffing detection to all who are willing to help. Each 
stone is tuned only to find turkeys or stuffings, but not both.

You will find these detecting stones in the common rooms. Each
stone will be tuned to a few items at a time. You should <choose>
a target to hone in on, and <activate> the stone. If the stone detects 
the item nearby, it'll help you find it! Note that you can only have 
one type of stone throughout the event, and cannot switch.

We also need some help to stuff the turkeys, and they must be
done quickly after finding them. If you find stuffings, you
can <offer> the stuffing to someone with turkeys to have it
be stuffed. If you are made such an offer, make sure you only
<accept> the offer from those you trust. You never know if
they are a sinister turkey thief themselves! Work together as
a turkey/stuffing team to stuff the most turkeys.

Finally, there are special arch turkeys running around that
can't be found by the stones. Try not to <poke> them or disturb
them too much, or they may get angry. Collect the whole set
of arch turkeys for special bonuses.

The event will run until 21.00h on Friday, December 7.
There will be different types of turkeys and stuffings, some 
more rare than others. Rarer items are worth more points. Stuffed
birds are worth even more points. You can only stuff birds with
the same type of stuffing. The major goal of the event will be 
to gather as many points as possible. Points will be given for 
finding and collecting the stolen items before others get to them.
The sinister thieves have gotten wind of this event, however, and
may throw in some fake items. Be on the watchout for them!

Your score will be remembered when you leave the game, 
and if you enter the game once more you will be able to 
continue your search. Because the event runs for two weeks, we
will also give awards for most points achieved in each week. We
hope that will incentivize those who get a late start.

The winners and runner ups will be announced and rewarded
in due time.

This event was made possible thanks to the generosity 
of the people of the realms, who donated generously
into the event box in the Mvsevm of Events. 

Happy Thanksgiving from the Event Team of Genesis!

I know players have tons of tips and tricks on finding turkeys. Share your tips here for others to learn from.

One thing to be careful of, if you log out anything you collected disappears. It doesn't specifically state this so thought I would clarify. So collect and stuff as much as possible at one time or you will not be able to stuff those turkeys should you log out.

Yup! That's a good thing to point out, Greneth.

To clarify, you can't stuff anything that you didn't collect that session. But all turkeys and stuffings you collect count towards your overall points, throughout all your logins. In other words, no need to stay logged in for two weeks!

What about arch turkeys, can they be stuffed? All need to be found in one session to get the bonus?

Turkey event stone glitch?

I was looking for a golden stuffing in Calia.
Everywhere there was only one star showing on the stone
until i entered Amazons Guild.
There were two stars... but - as with just one star - the stone could not
point me to the stuffing...
The area is small so i checked all the rooms but found no stuffing.
Sometime later the stuffing dissapeared from my list.

Similar thing could happen a few times but i was not sure
that i checked all rooms.

So it happens that even with two stars the stone does not point you
to the stuffing/turkey.

Is this intentional? Some 'really fake' stuffings on the list that one can not find?
