BURNOUT IS DEFEATED! PLUS, LAST CHANCE FOR FALL FESTIVAL ITEMS

Last Chance for Fall Festival ItemsEdit

Pet-Wolf-Spooky

This is your last chance to get all Fall Festival items before they vanish! This includes Limited-Edition Outfits, Seasonal Shop purchases, Seasonal Edition Skins and Hair Colors, and yes, even Spooky Hatching Potions. Grab them all while you still can!

World Boss: Burnout is Defeated!Edit

Mount Phoenix-Base

Burnout has been defeated! All Habiticans have received rewards, including a phoenix pet and mount, assorted candies, and the Savior of the Flourishing Fields achievement. Well done! Here's how it happened:

With a great, soft sigh, Burnout slowly releases the ardent energy that was fueling its fire. As the monster curls quietly into ashes, its stolen energy shimmers through the air, rejuvenating the Exhaust Spirits and returning them to their true forms.

Ian, Daniel, and the Seasonal Sorceress cheer as Habiticans rush to greet them, and all the missing citizens of the Flourishing Fields embrace their friends and families. The final Exhaust Spirit transforms into the Joyful Reaper herself!

"Look!" whispers @Baconsaur, as the ashes begin to glitter. Slowly, they resolve into hundreds of shining phoenixes!

One of glowing birds alights on the Joyful Reaper's skeletal arm, and she grins at it. "It has been a long time since I've had the exquisite privilege to behold a phoenix in the Flourishing Fields," she says. "Although given recent occurrences, I must say, this is highly thematically appropriate!"

Her tone sobers, although (naturally) her grin remains. "We're known for being hard-working here, but we are also known for our feasts and festivities. Rather ironic, I suppose, that as we strove to plan a spectacular party, we refused to permit ourselves any time for fun. We certainly won't make the same mistake twice!"

She claps her hands. "Now - let's celebrate!" by Lemoness, Baconsaur, Aiseant, and SabreCat

BURNOUT STRIKES AGAIN! PLUS, SPOOKY POTIONS VANISHING SOON

World Boss: Burnout Uses Exhaust Strike!Edit

Npc daniel broken burnout
Many Habiticans have been hiding from Burnout in the Tavern, but no longer! With a screeching howl, Burnout rakes the Tavern with its white-hot hands. As the Tavern patrons flee, Daniel is caught in Burnout's grip, and transforms into an Exhaust Spirit right in front of you!

This hot-headed horror has gone on for too long. Don't give up... we're so close to vanquishing Burnout for once and for all!

World Boss: Burnout Uses Exhaust StrikeEdit

Seasonalshop broken

Ahh!!! Our incomplete Dailies have fed the flames of Burnout, and now it has enough energy to strike again! It lets loose a gout of spectral flame that sears the Seasonal Shop. You're horrified to see that the cheery Seasonal Sorceress has been transformed into a sorrowful Exhaust Spirit!

We have to rescue our NPCs! Hurry, Habiticans, complete your tasks and defeat Burnout before it strikes for a third time!

World Boss: Burnout Uses Exhaust Strike!Edit

Npc ian broken

Oh no! Despite our best efforts, we've let some Dailies get away from us, and now Burnout is inflamed with energy! With a crackling snarl, it engulfs Ian the Quest Master in a surge of spectral fire. As fallen quest scrolls smolder, the smoke clears, and you see that Ian has been drained of energy and turned into a drifting Exhaust Spirit!

Only defeating Burnout can break the spell and save our beloved Quest Master. Let's keep our Dailies in check and defeat this monster before it attacks again!

WORLD BOSS REVEALED: BURNOUT!

Burnout, Scourge of the Flourishing FieldsEdit

Quest burnout

It is well past midnight, still and stiflingly hot, when Redphoenix and scout captain Kiwibot abruptly burst through the city gates. "We need to evacuate all the wooden buildings!" Redphoenix shouts. "Hurry!"

Kiwibot grips the wall as she catches her breath."It's draining people and turning them into Exhaust Spirits! That's why everything was delayed. That's where the missing people have gone. It's been stealing their energy!"

"'It'?'" asks Lemoness.

And then the heat takes form.

It rises from the earth in a billowing, twisting mass, and the air chokes with the scent of smoke and sulphur. Flames lick across the molten ground and contort into limbs, writhing to horrific heights. Smoldering eyes snap open, and the creature lets out a deep and crackling cackle.

Kiwibot whispers a single word.

"Burnout."

Quickly, Habiticans, we have to save the Flourishing Fields from incineration! All of us will battle this World Boss together by completing tasks, but it won't attack us individually. However, the more Dailies we skip, the closer we get to triggering its fearsome Exhaust Strike, which will target our NPCs!

Knowing your enemy is the first step to defeating it. Read more about World Bosses here.

by Lemoness

Fall Plot-Line ContinuesEdit

Although we are now well into autumn, the Flourishing Fields are locked in a sweltering heat wave. The candies grow sticky in the sun, and the Spooky Pets lie panting in the shade. But this is minor news compared to the calamity that has just occurred.

The Joyful Reaper is gone.

The citizens of the Flourishing Fields are working frantically to find their lost ruler, but many of their search parties have not returned. Those few that do make it back are empty-handed. Worse yet, they report frightening hordes of spirits drifting at the edges of the Fields.

Redphoenix grimly gathers her scouts. "If these spirits are a threat, we need to face them directly," she says. "There's no point in procrastination." Without fuss or fanfare, they set off into the night.

Fall Plot-Line ContinuesEdit

In general, we've all been enjoying the Flourishing Fields. Habiticans are posing in fun costumes, taking pictures of the orange-and-black wildlife, and casting Spooky Sparkles on each other.

Unfortunately, there does seem to be a serious problem with production for the first time in the history of the Fields. Deadlines are being missed. Shipments are not arriving. As you walk down the street, you overhear worried whispers among the citizens, speculating on the cause.

Some blame the unseasonal heat wave that has begun in the past few days. Others point to the difficulty of the tasks, and their ever-increasing quantity. And a few people -- just a few -- murmur that some of the hardest-working citizens have been disappearing, one by one, leaving their obligations abandoned. But surely that is nothing more than rumor?

Fall Festival Plot-Line ContinuesEdit

Last minute preparations for the Fall Festival are underway! Lemoness has been bustling about with tomes of potion-brewing, and conferring with the artisans in cheerful conspiracy. SabreCat has been seen in the smithy, toiling on projects that he has loudly announced to be "very hush-hush." Even the elusive Royal Chancellor, Redphoenix, has taken a break from sending Boring Business Letters to roast marshmallows outside the Tavern. Everyone has happily gathered around her little campfire, which she is feeding with a steady supply of envelopes.

Only one thing has disrupted the anticipation. You catch Lemoness frowning as she reads a message attached to the latest shipment from the Flourishing Fields.

"They're apologizing for not sending as many pumpkins as they promised, due to an 'unanticipated setback,'" she explains. "There's no need for them to be sorry, though -- they've sent us hundreds already! They said the same thing last week about the candy vegetable harvest. I told the Joyful Reaper not to worry about it, but she just promises to work harder."

Well, soon the Festival will launch, and they'll be able to take a break. Nothing to be concerned about!

Fall Plot-Line BeginsEdit

Lady Lemoness has tacked a notice to the Seasonal Shop:

"This year, the Flourishing Fields have agreed to host our annual Fall Festival! It will launch very close to the equinox, so get excited.

For those of you who are less familiar with our geography, the Flourishing Fields are the most productive area of Habitica. The people living there are among the most hard-working, heroic, and happy Habiticans in the realm. (Please don't be deceived by their overwhelming fondness for orange and black.)

Of course, nobody works harder than their ruler, the Joyful Reaper, who is well-known for her sweet heart (and sweet tooth)! Since the Fields are extremely fertile, the Joyful Reaper and her citizens are also famous for throwing fabulous feasts. We're in for a treat!"

Well, it certainly sounds like it! With such a diligent group planning the party, the Festival is sure to occur without any kind of unforeseeable calamity. Hip, hip, hooray!

iOS Update and iPad AppEdit

There’s a new iOS update! One of our awesome open-source contributors, Shadallark, has made our Habitica iOS app Universal so that it natively supports iPads. Enjoy all the new space for your tasks! We've also fixed several bugs, and excellent contributor kylefox has added a search bar.

If you like the direction that we’ve been taking the app, please consider leaving us a review. It means a lot to us :) Questions? Concerns? Don't hesitate to email mobile@habitica.com and we will happily help you!

This is an example of our fantastic open-source community at work - since our developers are spending all their time on the Android app, it would have been a long while before we could develop an iPad version if it weren’t for our excellent volunteers!

Speaking of which, we are now accepting translations for the iOS app on Transifex here. If you speak another language, we’d love your help!

Gryphon Contest WinnerEdit

Mount Gryphon-RoyalPurple
After sorting through over 1600 entries, we finally have a name for our Royal Purple Gryphon: MELIOR! "Melior" is Latin for "better," because Habitica is a place where everyone is striving to become better at their goals in their quest to improve their lives.

The name "Melior" was submitted by awesome user NobleTheSecond, who has received their prize. Congratulations! A secondary prize has also been awarded to TangyDragonBBQ, who independently submitted a slightly different variant of that name.

Thank you so much to everyone who submitted names! They were very well-thought-out and very entertaining, and it was extremely difficult for the staff to make a decision. We hope you will join with us in welcoming Melior into the Habitica family!

HABITICA NAMING DAY ON JULY 31ST!

Habitica Naming Day is July 31st!Edit

We are pleased to announce that the final day of the Summer Splash Festival, July 31st, will be the inaugural Habitica Naming Day! On this day, HabitRPG will officially become Habitica. Our old name was unfortunately very confusing to people ("HabitZPR? HabitGRG?"), so we've decided to name our app and website after the land of Habitica, where all these adventures take place.

We will be celebrating with some fun surprises, so get excited! What will change?

In almost all cases, your accounts will still stay exactly the same and work normally! Only some of the names and references will be different. Here is a list of the changes:

The URL will be changed from habitrpg.com to habitica.com for all links, and habitrpg.com will automatically redirect to habitica.com. All in-game references to HabitRPG will become references to Habitica. The HabitRPG chest logo will change to the new Habitica logo. Our affiliated sites, such as the Wiki, Trello, Twitter, etc. will use the new Habitica name. We don't anticipate any issues with third-party tools, but we will be actively working with developers to help them make any necessary updates. You can help us by reporting broken third-party tools at Help -> Report a Bug. When will it change?

Changing our name is a pretty enormous task, so it won't all happen in an instant! Some changes may start switching over slightly before the 31st, and some may take slightly longer, but the majority of the changes and all of the celebration will take place on July 31st. Thank you for being patient with us! More questions?

If you have any more questions, drop by the Newbies Guild and we'll be happy to answer them!

NEW iOS APP: HABITICA!

We are proud to announce the beta release of our new native iOS app: Habitica! It features an all-new interface, smoother performance, reminders to complete Dailies, and tons of features including skills and better party chat!  Click here to down load it - It's a new app, not an upgrade of the clunky old one.

This is a beta release, so please report any issues using the in-app Send Feedback and Report a Bug buttons, under Menu > About. The repository is open source, so anyone can jump in and help out.

Finally, if you like what we're doing with the app, please consider leaving us a review! We'd really appreciate it.

by Viirus

What about Android?Edit

We are hard at work on the native Android app as we speak! It's coming along very well. We will announce as soon as it is ready to download, never fear.

Why Habitica?Edit

Habitica is the land where HabitRPG takes place - a land where players ride dragons and slay Dailies. Plus, it's now the name of the mobile app. Soon, it will also be the name of the site!

The decision to switch from HabitRPG to Habitica is a big one, and we've been talking it over for a long time. We've gotten feedback since the beginning that it was confusing, especially for the many people who aren't familiar with the acronym. ("HabitPGR? HabitRZG? What was your name again?") We feel that "Habitica" keeps the fantasy flair without the confusing abbreviation, so it's the best of both realms.

So far, habitica.com redirects to habitrpg.com, and it's the name of the native mobile apps. Look forward to an upcoming announcement of the switchover date, when we will be ringing in the name change with our inaugural Habitica Day celebration!

REPEATING TASKS, START DATE, AND MOBILE APP UPDATES!

by Blade and fallenpanda

New Repeat Option for DailiesEdit

Dailies now have a new Advanced Option: Repeat Every X Days. You've wanted this feature for a long time, and it's finally here!

First, please note that this new option is OPT-IN only. We won't make any changes to your preexisting Dailies without you knowing it. We wouldn't do that!

That being said, here are the new features:

Repeating TasksEdit

Use the "Every X Days" function under Dailies Advanced Options to create tasks that repeat after a certain number of days have passed, whether every 2 days, every 15 days, every 30 days... You choose the number that works for you!

These Dailies are only due on those given dates. Need to pay your rent every 30 days? Take medicine every other day? Water your plants every 4 days? No longer a problem.

Start DateEdit

Dailies now have a Start Date. They will not be due before this date. This means that if you want to add a new Daily while you're thinking about it, but not have it be due until later, you can achieve that by setting a future Start Date!

Mobile App UpdatesEdit

New Android and iOS updates are available to support this feature. Please, update your apps before using it, or the new repeating Dailies will not display normally on the mobile apps!

Other NotesEdit

For a short period of time, the Data Display Tool will not be able to calculate damage correctly for Repeat Every X Dailies. We'll get that updated very soon so that it will be accurate again!

If you still have questions about Repeat Every X Dailies, don't hesitate to ask in the Newbies Guild!

NEW ANIMAL SKINS AND ACCESSORIES, INN IMPROVEMENTS, COPY CHAT TO TO-DO, AND EXTRA INFO

New Animal Skins and Accessories Available!Edit

Animal Skins Example

They say that owners resemble their pets, and now that's truer than ever for Habiticans! The Animal Skin Set and Animal Accessory Set are now available in the Customization shop. Time to let your avatar walk on the wild side.

by Painter de Cluster and SabreCat

Inn ImprovementsEdit

Now even when you Rest in the Inn, your Dailies will refresh each day. Important note: your Dailies still do NOT hurt you while you're in the Inn. We wouldn't do that to you!

It used to be that the Resting in the Inn froze all your Dailies so that they wouldn't refresh the next day - even for important Dailies like "take medicine" or "feed pets." This was very frustrating to a lot of users who relied on these features, even during periods of time when they needed to rest in the Inn for finals, illness, vacation, etc.

Now if you're in a situation, for example finals period, where you don't have the time or energy to do most of your Dailies, you can still complete some of them every day while Resting in the Inn. It's much more flexible and convenient!

If you're in a quest, you still won't deal damage/collect items until you check out of the Inn, and your Dailies will not damage your party members, but you can still be injured by a Boss if your Party mates skip their own Dailies. You also still do not gain Mana overnight until you check out of the Inn. If you have any questions about how Resting in the Inn works, be sure to ask in the Newbies Guild!

by hairlessbear and Blade

Copy Chat to To-DoEdit

Now you can copy any chat message into your To-Do list! If your roommate posted in party chat and asked you to grab groceries, or your friend reminded you about the history quiz tomorrow, you can save it right into your To-Do list. Awesome!

Skills Rebalancing

Skills RebalancingEdit

After over a year's worth of complaints on Trello and countless bug reports on Github, and after almost five months of dedicated debating, coding, and testing, we have finally rolled out an overhaul of the skills and mana system. Thank you so much to everyone who contributed opinions, time, and effort! Here's what happened:

HABITS DAMAGE BOSSESEdit

Now it's even easier to damage a Boss without skills! It was definitely high time that HabitRPG counted Habits towards battles. We were not living up to our name.

MANA DIRECTLY LINKED TO PROGRESSEdit

Mana was pretty broken: you gained it overnight no matter what you'd done the day before, and it was only linked to To-Dos. This meant that using skills was pretty detached from how well you were doing in your real life, which defeated the purpose of the game!

Now you can gain Mana from Dailies and positive Habits as well as To-Dos! You still gain Mana overnight, but how much you gain depends on how many of your Dailies you did.

You can also lose Mana by hitting negative Habits. Yikes! Better not indulge...

SKILLS STRENGTHENED AND WEAKENEDEdit

Some notoriously overpowered skills have been weakened, like Backstab (which often granted over 1000GP per cast), Burst of Flames (which allowed you to 1-hit KO most bosses regardless of how much or how little you'd done that day), and Valorous Presence (which caused the notorious "I checked off one Daily and gained 997 levels" bug reports).

Some painfully UNDERpowered skills have been strengthened, such as Tools of the Trade and Searing Brightness. We think you'll like these much better now!

For a full description of what changed, check out this blog post.

GIVING FEEDBACKEdit

We understand that these changes may be disruptive to some of you. We're sorry! We hope that with time, you will find them to be a drastic improvement. We will be waiting two weeks (so that everyone can get used to the new system), and then on May 15th will open up a new Trello card for comments and feedback.

For those of you who want to reallocate stats now that you have the new system, please post your User ID in this Github ticket. (Your UUID is found under Settings > API; do NOT post your API Token.) That ticket is also being used to debate a possibility to make it so that reallocating stats does not cost gems. If that's a feature you would like (or would hate), definitely drop by that ticket and let us know!

by Alys, Verabird, brandonjreid, ShilohT, betaveros, SabreCat, chimericdream, and everyone who commented with feedback on Trello and Github. You guys are great!

SITE DOWNTIME EXPLANATION (AND SLEEPING AVATARS)

SITE DOWNTIME EXPLANATION (AND SLEEPING AVATARS)Edit

As most of you probably noticed, the site was down yesterday. We got a surge of new users from Imgur who absolutely flattened the servers by registering all at once, and it proved very difficult to start up again. You can read the technical details in this Github ticket. We're sorry about all of the frustration!

At about midnight PST we checked all active users into the inn, "freezing" their accounts so that their incomplete Dailies would not hurt them, in hopes that this would prevent most of the undeserved deaths due to server troubles. That's why your avatar is sleeping! To check yourself out of the inn, go to Social > Tavern > Check out of inn.

If you died before we could check you into the Inn, you can restore your streaks under task edit, and all other stats under Settings > Site > Fix Character Values. You should be able to buy back all missing items under Rewards. If you cannot, please post in Social > Tavern and a moderator will help you!

Thank you so much to all of our intrepid users who answered questions on social media and in the chat rooms, and to everyone who sent us kind messages while we were scrambling to save the site. You guys are incredible, and we feel constantly lucky to have such a caring and positive community.

And welcome, Imgurians! Sorry your introduction was so rocky, but we can't wait to get to know you. There is a Camp Imgur Guild that you might enjoy.

Now, back to productivity!

VICTORY! The Abominable Stressbeast is DEFEATED!Edit

We've done it! With a final bellow, the Abominable Stressbeast dissipates into a cloud of snow. The flakes twinkle down through the air as cheering Habiticans embrace their pets and mounts. Our animals and our NPCs are safe once more! Stoïkalm is Saved!

SabreCat speaks gently to a small sabertooth. "Please find the citizens of the Stoïkalm Steppes and bring them to us," he says. Several hours later, the sabertooth returns, with a herd of mammoth riders following slowly behind. You recognize the head rider as Lady Glaciate, the leader of Stoïkalm.

"Mighty Habiticans," she says, "My citizens and I owe you the deepest thanks, and the deepest apologies. In an effort to protect our Steppes from turmoil, we began to secretly banish all of our stress into the icy mountains. We had no idea that it would build up over generations into the Stressbeast that you saw! When it broke loose, it trapped all of us in the mountains in its stead and went on a rampage against our beloved animals." Her sad gaze follows the falling snow. "We put everyone at risk with our foolishness. Rest assured that in the future, we will come to you with our problems before our problems come to you."

She turns to where @Baconsaur is snuggling with some of the baby mammoths. "We have brought your
Pet-Mammoth-Base

animals an offering of food to apologize for frightening them, and as a symbol of trust, we will leave some of our pets and mounts with you. We know that you will all take care good care of them."

by everyone who completed a Daily or a To-Do during the battle!


1/21/2015Edit

THIRD STRESS STRIKE!Edit

The World Boss in the Tavern has used a third Stress Strike! Justin the Guide is trying to distract the Stressbeast by running around its ankles, yelling productivity tips! The Abominable Stressbeast is stomping madly, but it seems like we're really wearing this beast down. I doubt it has enough energy for another strike. Don't give up... we're so close to finishing it off! Complete Dailies and To-Dos to damage the World Boss! A World Boss will never damage individual players or accounts in any way. Only active accounts who are not resting in the inn will have their incomplete Dailies tallied.

Stressbeast Desperation TriggeredEdit

We're almost there, Habiticans! With diligence and Dailies, we've whittled the Stressbeast's health down to only 500K! The creature roars and flails in desperation, rage building faster than ever. The monster is --- AHHH! --- swinging me and Matt around at a terrifying pace, raising a blinding snowstorm that makes it harder to hit.

We'll have to redouble our efforts, but take heart - this is a sign that the Stressbeast knows it is about to be defeated. Don't give up now! Please?

The Stressbeast raises its Rage and Defense! Complete Dailies and To-Dos to damage the World Boss. A World Boss will never damage individual players or accounts in any way. Only active accounts who are not resting in the inn will have their incomplete Dailies tallied.

by Lemoness, Kiwibot, and SabreCat


1/19/2015Edit

Second Stress StrikeEdit

AHHHHHHHH!!!!! IT'S GOT ME!!!!! Oh, Habiticans, why didn't you do your Dailies?!

The World Boss in the Tavern has used another Stress Strike, and this time it's attacked me, Bailey the Town Crier! To save me and the other NPCs, complete Dailies and To-Dos to damage the World Boss! Incomplete Dailies fill the Stress Strike Bar. When the Stress Strike bar is full, the World Boss will attack an NPC and regain some health. A World Boss will never damage individual players or accounts in any way. Only active accounts who are not resting in the inn will have their incomplete Dailies tallied.

The difference is that "King of the Dinosaurs" is a normal pet quest, like all the others, whereas "The Dinosaur Unearthed" has less HP - but also a Rage bar (a la World Bosses) that allows it to heal if you skip too many of your Dailies. Both bosses still attack your party based on how many Dailies are incomplete. Users will be able to buy Tyrannosaur eggs after defeating either boss twice or both bosses once.

Have fun!

STRESS HAS STRUCK!Edit

World Boss: First Stress Strike!

The World Boss in the Tavern has used its first Stress Strike!


Despite our best efforts, we've let some Dailies get away from us, and their dark-red color has infuriated the Abominable Stressbeast and caused it to regain some of its health! The horrible creature lunges for the Stables, but Matt the Beast Master heroically leaps into the fray to protect the pets and mounts. The Stressbeast has seized Matt in its vicious grip, but at least it's distracted for the moment.


Complete Dailies and To-Dos to damage the World Boss! Incomplete Dailies fill the Stress Strike Bar. When the Stress Strike bar is full, the World Boss will attack an NPC. A World Boss will never damage individual players or accounts in any way. Only active accounts who are not resting in the inn will have their incomplete Dailies tallied.

World Boss: The Abominable Stressbeast!Edit

Quest stressbeast

A new World Boss has appeared in the Tavern! All of the completed Dailies and To-Dos of Habiticans damage the World Boss. Incomplete Dailies fill the Stress Strike Bar. When the Stress Strike bar is full, the World Boss will attack an NPC.

A World Boss will never damage individual players or accounts in any way. Only active accounts who are not resting in the inn will have their incomplete Dailies tallied. Read on for the details!

Winter Plot-Line: The Abominable Stressbeast Attacks!Edit

The first thing we hear are the footsteps, slower and more thundering than the stampede. One by one, Habiticans look outside their doors, and words fail us.

We've all seen Stressbeasts before, of course - tiny vicious creatures that attack during difficult times. But this? This towers taller than the buildings, with paws that could crush a dragon with ease. Frost swings from its stinking fur, and as it roars, the icy blast rips the roofs off our houses. A monster of this magnitude has never been mentioned outside of distant legend.

"Beware, Habiticans!" SabreCat cries. "Barricade yourselves indoors - this is the Abominable Stressbeast itself!"

"That thing must be made of centuries of stress!" Kiwibot says, locking the Tavern door tightly and shuttering the windows.

"The Stoïkalm Steppes," Lemoness says, face grim. "All this time, we thought they were placid and untroubled, but they must have been secretly hiding their stress somewhere. Over generations, it grew into this, and now it's broken free and attacked them - and us!"

There's only one way to drive away a Stressbeast, Abominable or otherwise, and that's to attack it with completed Dailies and To-Dos! Let's all band together and fight off this fearsome foe - but be sure not to slack on your tasks, or our undone Dailies may enrage it so much that it lashes out...

Testing Fix for Cron BugEdit

Today we will be testing a possible fix for a bug that sometimes causes Dailies to not reset correctly on the following day. It's a big change, so we will be keeping a close watch on the site to make sure that it doesn't break anything. If you experience any problems with day start or Dailies reseting in the next few days, please let us know immediately on GitHub. Thanks!

Date Format AdjustmentEdit

There's a new option under Settings that lets you adjust the date format. Now you can list dates as MM/DD/YYYY, DD/MM/YYYY, or YYYY/MM/DD.

Spread the Word ChallengeEdit

In honor of the season of New Year's resolutions, we're running our second Spread the Word Challenge!

Winter Plot-Line ContinuesEdit

After a fun-filled New Year's Eve, Habiticans wake to a rumbling that shakes them out of their Absurd Party Hats. Running to their windows reveals.... a stampede?

A thundering herd of mammoths charges past, sabertooths roar, and dinosaurs both feathery and scaly slither by at top speed. Habiticans stare open-mouthed, but before anyone can react, the stampede has swept through Habit City and is gone into the distance, leaving only pawprints in the snow, the howling wind, and some trampled New Year's cards.

Habiticans are advised to keep calm and not give in to stress during this confusing and difficult time. We've sent SabreCat after the frightened animals from the Stoïkalm Steppes, and he is working to calm them down so that we can bring them back to the safety of the Stables. We hope to have an explanation for this strangeness soon. In the meantime, keep all of your own pets and mounts indoors.
