It’s… it’s May? Really??
This month’s OotS is Superstar, along with their Mini Angel Wings and Magical Ribbon Mantle! This month’s coat and items were created by Meru. You can purchase this set in the Out of the Shadows shop through the end of the month!
Coats for a Cause
Our Coats for a Cause campaign recently came to a close. In total, you raised $975 for charity! $780 of that was for the Animal Welfare Institute, and the remaining $195 for the Red Cross. Great job, everyone!
April’s monthly roundup has been posted and all stickers and prizes have been distributed! This month’s prompts have also been posted.
Going forward, instead of awarding gems for participation in the Creative Collective, we will be awarding Golden Tickets. You can sell these items from your inventory in exchange for 3600 nuggets — this way, those participants who wish to buy gems can still do so, while those who prefer having nuggets on hand can also do so!
Our monthly Productivi-Day will be held on Friday, May 15th! We look forward to spending a day productive-ing with you all!
Moocena Cave was sent out to pasture
Our April Fools’ activity, Moocena Cave invited our community to come together in some light-hearted, dairy-related hijinks for a couple of weeks. We hope you enjoyed our particular brand of silliness! It is our hope that some version of the Mushroom Milking game will soon be added to the site - so keep an eye out for future announcements regarding that!
Our Profile Drive and Bin-GO RP! activities are still ongoing! We’ve really enjoyed seeing the progress you’ve made on your characters’ profiles and reading along with your roleplays, and hope that you’re enjoying the activities, too!
A couple more player donations were added to the shops! Additionally, the Bag of Wonders appears to be hiding another new piece of equipment!
This month saw the release of Mycena Cave’s official Discord server! We’re very pleased with how well the launch has gone, overall, and are really enjoying the additional community engagement it’s providing. You can learn more about our Discord server and how to join in this announcement thread!
On the Horizon
This is our behind-the scenes section! It contains a little information about WIPs. A lot of this we can’t go into greater detail about since we’re still working out the details ourselves, or we’re unsure of the timeline, but we like the idea of sharing some of the things we’re currently working on!
A note from Myla: covid continues to affect lives in strange and profound ways, and we hope you, your family, and friends are all staying healthy and doing as well. Our staff team continues to be impacted by covid, and we emphasize prioritizing physical & mental health, family, and safety above all else. This community continues to be a light in my day, and the small, everyday interactions I see keep me afloat—I’ve seen some truly bizarre words being sent in the event (along with beautiful poems?!), really amazing art being posted, interesting & intricate roleplays and character plotting, and heartening interactions. Thank you everyone for continuing to be wonderful to each other. <3
The Reign of the North Wind
Our Spring event, Reign of the North Wind is set to wrap up in the next few days. With the Guardian Spirits quelled Stonecrest Cavern’s deep winter thawing once more into spring, focus has shifted from desperately slinging spells at the corrupted Spirits to playful word volleying between Mycenians. This event is set to come to an end after 12:00 ST (noon) on May 4th, so be sure to rack up those points while you still can!

Really loving these behind-the-scene updates!! I think I said much the same last month, but it really makes me smile!

heh I’m sure some of the bizarre words were from me.
Anyway, I love this event, it’s really fun. And the April Fool’s event was SO cute!

Love the Slumbering Sands toggle! I wanted just the silks and now I have them.

Quick Adventure interface update
One of the more common pieces of feedback we received with the Adventure Editor was that being able to see the entirety of a command’s actions at once makes editing a command much easier, because you can visually see what it’s doing. One consequence of moving away from the JSON editor was that many actions took up more vertical space, and so in some cases made it harder to keep track of what was going on.
This is a relatively small update, but one that I hope represents a nice quality-of-life improvement for those of you who enjoy creating adventures :)
