Congratulations, my friends! You've done it! You managed to restore all 3 enchanted seals and prevent Mount Ovation from erupting! The undead hordes have been eliminated - or at least driven back underground - all is quiet around the Kudos Mountains again!

What's more, you didn't just save the land, you made sure that the refugees who were displaced by this mounting disaster were kept safe, fed and sheltered throughout the crisis. I could not be more proud of you!

This was easily the most complex Epic Week we've ever put on, with two completely new elements (farming sim and the research library) in addition to the traditional monster combat, puzzles, riddles, contests, and even crafty quests. It took a whole lot of teamwork and a whole lot of focus to achieve this victory.

If helping digitally made you feel amazing, I strongly encourage those of you with some disposable income to consider donating to a charity that aids refugees in your area! :) <3


Everyone who participated in this Epic Week will receive this exclusive accolade on their profile to commemorate the occasion:

Special Thanks


Thanks to onion for the Doubutt game
Thanks to Darth_Angelus for the EW videos
Thanks to Auberon for the EW comics, as well as the pixel versions of the cake icon and pitchfork icon
Thanks to Justine for the EW items, cake and monster designs

FAQ


Where are the character styles as prizes?
To be totally honest, creating the farming sim and the research library took up ALL the time I might have made the new character styles in! I promise there will be some soon. ;)

What's going to happen to the farming game now?
It will stay up in its current form for a few weeks, but eventually, it will be moved to its own server and expanded on.

However, this is NOT THE LAST you have seen of avatars and maps on the RPR. Remember when I said this?

What's my big, over-arching RPR goal for this year?

I'm going to experiment with ways to add real time, interactive avatar and map support to the site. I'm not ready to promise that we'll get this yet, but it's a really sincere goal and I'll be trying all kinds of experiments to see what the most likely techniques will be to get us there.

The farming sim was one of those experiments! :D I'll have a lot more to say about this in the coming weeks, and I'm sure we'll all chat about it a LOT at my next Office Hour!

My inventory is an utter mess, can I throw out all this party stuff?
Use this link to donate all of your Epic Week items to the armory in one go. Tada, clean inventory! :)

This was fun! I didn’t get my last song submitted but that was because I fell asleep last night in my chair with a cat trying to contribute with his keyboard dance.

And the whole eleven thing....

Happy 11th Birthday RPRepository!

(Anyone suspect that 11 was removed from the D100 for the 11th birthday?)

\o/ A fabulous celebration for a fabulous community!

The research materials were just so compelling aside from all of their tricky puzzles. (Please please please tell me that Usim and Rhozora stayed a thing for a long time after they averted disaster together. *wibbles*)

Also: saving the land through the power of pie-baking? Yes.

Thank you so much, Kim and everyone else who made the week possible! It's always a blast.

I’m so sad it’s over, but MAN did I let out a sigh of relief at success. It always passes too quickly. This made me remember just how much I missed being active here.

Can’t wait for next year!! 🎉🎉🎉

That was fantastic, thank-you so much Kim! I'm really excited to hear whatever ideas you have in store for avatars and maps. :D It was a lot of fun having a game where we could interact with other users so collaboratively.
