Epic Week 2022: WIN!

Vision or hearing impaired? Read a description of this video here.

A dark mist swirls around the feet of the characters in the cavern, red lightning occasionally crackling in its depths. The characters look at it nervously. They are gathered around the obelisk.

Adventurer 1: That Balrog is going to reform any minute now...

The hero grips his sword and narrows his eyes with determination.

Hero: If it does, we’ll be ready for it.

Princess: What are you talking about? That was exhausting! We used so many potions!

Adventurer 2: Just a little more... There!

The obelisk lights up. As its light intensifies, the black mist is driven back, retreating into the shadows. The adventurers cheer.

Princess: We did it!

The Hero visibly slumps back against the obelisk and looks relieved.

Hero, recovering himself: Now we celebrate our victory!

Princess: Happy birthday, RP Repository!

You did it! Together, you completed all 30 challenges, defeated hundreds of monsters, planted crops and crafted potions, and helped Doubutt send a steady supply of weapons to warriors. This game is only possible to move through with intense teamwork. Be proud of yourselves!

Look at these treasures we found -- new character styles for everyone! 'Za, Hanging Herbs, Spices, Fruit Salad, Clockwork, Swamp and Mechanic.

This influx of new food related styles meant that we also now have a "food" style category you can search. Custom style makers with food related styles out there, consider updating those categories! :)
