[EVENT] The Walk of Three (Jan 23rd - Feb 6th)
The morning of the first day of spring, Mycenians gather in the heart of the caves and celebrate the Three—the sorceress, the wanderer, and the Bone Monster. This tradition began in the early years of the cave, and comprises of a day-long festival, followed by three separate expeditions to honor the three most important figures in the history of the caves.

The festival lasts from the early hours of the morning until sundown. Mycenians enjoy bountiful feasts and play a variety of games, while elderly Mycenians gather to tell stories of the early days of the caves. As the sun begins to set, they begin to prepare for the second part of the their gathering. They separate into three groups, all of them bearing baskets full of ripe fruit and fresh flowers.

This is a really nice event. It incorporates mycena lore and a user submission, isn’t super stressful, and has a few different options for addressing each part. I like it a lot, and love seeing everyone else’s entries!

Cave capsule 2021 seems to be bugged. Every time I open it, I get another cave capsule.

Still haven’t managed to open it.

I really loved this event, it was very low-pressure and REALLY fun and the prizes were awesome, I love that we get to pick old stuff we might be missing or want extras of! ;w; Plus it was great looking at everyone’s submissions :D

I’d love to see more mini-events like this in the future, or even see this again next year :D Thanks staff for putting it together, and thanks sweaters for having a Giant Brain :D

This event was really great, and I like the way we can choose our prizes, but I think I may have found a glitch - even though I posted and took part in the Bone Monster: Gift Or Gallop activity, I didn’t get an Arcane Scars item yet, even though I already got the Cave Capsule and Glowworm Lanterns. I’m confused. Either way, this was fun!

Not a glitch - Crow has to hand out the Gift or Gallop prizes manually so the scars are getting handed out with the other prize you picked from that event! As soon as you get your choice of prizes from the prize thread you should get your scars too. :>

Thanks for clarifying that, Purr! :’) I knew I forgot to do something last night (like making a post on the forums to explain that point haha). Now that I’m rested and not staring at things with midnight-eyes, I will work on getting the arcane scars out to participants!

In the interest of fairness, we can’t make exceptions to the prize guidelines.

This was a really nice low pressure creative event. ^^ Also, fun to have the prize drops being pick an old item.

Cave Capsule 2021 has been fixed! :D

I really liked this event! The prizes were very generous, and it was amazing to see everyone’s creativity for the Carve a Companion activity! There’s so many gorgeous designs in there that I would adore seeing on the site as permanent additions, so I’m excited to see which ones get picked!

(I was about to say “it’s a shame only 3 will be made into Forever coats”, but looking back to the thread, I noted that it says “at least 3”, so that’s very exciting, because again, there’s so many good designs in the submissions!)
