Grabbed my two, although the lag made it very challenging.
I love that the event is a return to last year's game - that was a ton of fun!

EDIT: I was gonna play the decorating/game now, but it looks like I'll have to wait until the lag dies down a bit.

|Merry Christmas everyone!|
|Posted by: Lurhstaap Dec 25 2016, 12:06 AM|
| Oh wow, I was able to catch one already! Usually it's tougher early on. I must've had a very lucky click.
And now that I can see it, this is officially my favorite holiday egg of any holiday and that is NOT easy to say because I love all the holiday dragons and their eggs are all gorgeous. Easily one of my favorite eggs in the entire game. My goodness. It's like a Christmas tree ornament. It looks like blown glass. I want one IRL. O.O
|Posted by: pollyfirstfirst Dec 25 2016, 12:06 AM|
| Playing the event now! Too many people trying to grab eggs.
Edit...I"m stuck on the first page. If someone would mind telling me or PMing me instructions on how to play it, that would be appreciated.
|Posted by: Evolutary Dec 25 2016, 12:06 AM|

| Ooh I hope they grow up to be white like the eggs.
Merry Christmas to everyone!
|Posted by: andromedae Dec 25 2016, 12:07 AM|
|Beautiful event! It reminds me of the Pokemon games quite a bit. Amazing work, I am extremely thankful to everyone who could make this happen. Just grabbed my first egg - Will have to wait for grabbing another until tomorrow, when my hatchlings grow up.|

| Merry Christmas!!!
Also playing the game instead of hunting haha. Glad the NPCs don't seem to remember all the last year's bad deeds.
(and what the heck are we suppose to be doing to Reno & Ronin's cats to be making that squeeky sound? )
|Posted by: arjunvohra Dec 25 2016, 12:11 AM|
| Got 2 and happily egg-locked
I'm on a phone so I can't play the expedition right now ;-;
|Posted by: Retsam_Nogard Dec 25 2016, 12:11 AM|
| Happy holidays, everyone!
Ah, I'm loving the eggs already! Interesting colors with the shimmery white and green and gold. I can't wait to see the adults!
|Posted by: Naughtrish Dec 25 2016, 12:12 AM|
|Wooo! Merry Christmas! The eggs are gorgeous|
|Posted by: georgexu94 Dec 25 2016, 12:12 AM|

| Finally managed to catch my two eggs. The lag was terrible this year.
I'll check out the event tomorrow. Good luck to those still hunting through the lag for these eggs!
Thank you TJ and spriters!
|Posted by: Lythiaren Dec 25 2016, 12:12 AM|
| So um.
|Posted by: greycat Dec 25 2016, 12:15 AM|
| haven't caught an egg yet. lag and slow internet not helping at all. i might have to wait awhile.
edit...ha ha ha i just got one, yay!
|Posted by: Jazeki Dec 25 2016, 12:15 AM|
| We still only get two, right?
Also, got mine super early so I can play the game.
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Dec 25 2016, 12:16 AM|
|I caught my two eggs and playing the minigame on my phone. Where am is supposed to go?|
|Posted by: arjunvohra Dec 25 2016, 12:16 AM|
|Lytharien you can only get 2 CB Christmas and valentines dragons|
|Posted by: Lurhstaap Dec 25 2016, 12:16 AM|
|Can't believe it, but I already have my pair. I'm usually not able to get both this fast. I always work hard to get both on Christmas Day, but I don't think I've ever managed it in the first 15-20 minutes before. Off to a great start! Now to breed my Aegises and other stuff.|
|Posted by: Sunfeathers Dec 25 2016, 12:16 AM|
|I was all hyped to catch the new eggs but then I realized that I am still locked lol. I guess I'll check the event out instead.|
|Posted by: Lurhstaap Dec 25 2016, 12:17 AM|
Yes... exactly. Those limits should be showing on that page and don't seem to be. o.O
*crosses fingers this isn't just a bug*
|Posted by: glamoursea2 Dec 25 2016, 12:17 AM|
|Got my two. They're very pretty. Happy holidays everyoneeee|
|Posted by: Sapphira_Majoram Dec 25 2016, 12:18 AM|
| I'm playing the game but GAAAH I got stuck in an area >^<;;; it glitched on me when I was making my way south from that area where there was Quilt the Pillow Dragon right? To go back home? I ended up in the woods to the east/right of the map e.o now I'm stuck E.e like literally invisible amongst the trees e.e I don't wanna loose all the stuff I just gained for decorating my house GAH! Help? D:
Edit: Aww I clicked to reset my location and now I'm starting the day over again ._.
|Posted by: Lythiaren Dec 25 2016, 12:18 AM|
You seem to be misunderstanding the point of my post.
Which is that the Christmas dragons, which normally have a temporary limit of 2 during their release, are not currently listed on the Breed Limit page.
I'm currently waiting for an ER egg to speedhatch before I can Science.
|Posted by: gigglymonkey12 Dec 25 2016, 12:19 AM|
|hahah this game reminds me of harvest moon. I'm kinda in love|
|Posted by: Fortune86 Dec 25 2016, 12:19 AM|
I got stuck there too. Had to reset.
|Posted by: Dianacat777 Dec 25 2016, 12:19 AM|
| So excited to see this game back!
But there's one spot in the game with a narrow brown path heading straight downward, at one point nearly blocked off by two ledges, and when you follow it to where it loads another screen, you end up 'trapped' out of bounds - you can't see your character, just a bunch of trees, and you can't move.
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Dec 25 2016, 12:20 AM|
Wait, am I supposed to be going south or north? Could have sworn I read north o.o
|Posted by: blackdragon71 Dec 25 2016, 12:21 AM|
|Okay, who broke it?|
|Posted by: Lurhstaap Dec 25 2016, 12:21 AM|
Well, I tried to catch a third of the new eggs and got the usual message, so I think it's just a bug. Alas!
|Posted by: georgexu94 Dec 25 2016, 12:21 AM|
There's no more limit for Christmas dragons. They were abolished. Only the current Christmas dragons have a limit of two. Next year, you can breed and grab as many as you can.
|Posted by: Sapphira_Majoram Dec 25 2016, 12:21 AM|
|Oh wait I didn't have to restart the whole day I still have all my items including those won in the sledding game.|
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Dec 25 2016, 12:22 AM|
|Can someone tell me where Bill is?|
|Posted by: Jedi40 Dec 25 2016, 12:22 AM|
|Got my 2 eggs but in the event I can't find the Post office no matter where I look for it.|
|Posted by: greycat Dec 25 2016, 12:23 AM|
|i think i might not play the game just yet. i remember last year i kept getting stuck in glitches at the beginning. maybe i'll wait for a while.|
|Posted by: dragonluva711 Dec 25 2016, 12:23 AM|
|Merry Christmas and happy holidays everyone! So excited for the dragon and the event!|
|Posted by: Xocowolf Dec 25 2016, 12:24 AM|
| Got my two in record time Forest and Volcano.
They're beautiful. Thank you and Merry Christmas, TJ and spriters!
|Posted by: azila Dec 25 2016, 12:25 AM|
| Only problem for me is that there doesn't seem to be any way to get rid of the misplaced items in your house within the event. Unless I'm missing something, which is entirely possible
That is one beautiful egg! Can't wait to grab as many as I can.
|Posted by: Lurhstaap Dec 25 2016, 12:25 AM|
There's still a limit on CBs, and that should be showing. Shouldn't it? I could have sworn those showed there.
|Posted by: Stormcaller Dec 25 2016, 12:25 AM|
|Merry Christmas to all!|
|Posted by: StormBirdRising Dec 25 2016, 12:25 AM|
| I can't believe I got my two so fast.
I can't figure out how to play the game. It won't move
|Posted by: angelicdragonpuppy Dec 25 2016, 12:26 AM|
| Ten seconds in and I have already found the town hottie. All according to keikaku.
Is that a tiny black dragon next to him? So cute!
|Posted by: Fortune86 Dec 25 2016, 12:26 AM|
|How do you beat the sled game? Even without hitting anything it still takes 40+ seconds to reach the bottom.|
|Posted by: Phioxse Dec 25 2016, 12:26 AM|
|House decorating yaaaaaas!!|
|Posted by: cbussiere Dec 25 2016, 12:26 AM|
|Oooh, green and gold!! I'm so excited, this dragon has such a lovely color scheme!|
|Posted by: jis99 Dec 25 2016, 12:27 AM|
I got caught in a bunch of trees by a fence and had to click to re-set, too. I hope this isn't a trend. Very frustrating.
|Posted by: Wends Dec 25 2016, 12:27 AM|
| Word of advice - don't place a rug in front of your door in your house (like that attractive carrot rug). At least, don't put it lengthwise in front of your door. Your character will glitch out and you'll be incapable of entering, exiting, or altering your house no matter what you do. Even clicking the 'out of bounds' link doesn't help. Talk about a massive glitch. First day, too!
That on top of the multitudes of times I've followed a trail to a new screen to end up in the middle of a forest with no way out and had to click the 'out of bounds' link... this little game, while it holds promise like the last one we did, is obviously not play-tested and needs a heck of a lot more work to make it playable.
Edit: for those who've been stuck in the forest with the fence, there's two other forest screens you can get caught in. Unfortunately, this seems to be a common trend for now.
|Posted by: StormBirdRising Dec 25 2016, 12:27 AM|
How did you get past the sign in page?
|Posted by: kiramaru7 Dec 25 2016, 12:27 AM|
| Happy Holidays everyone!!
I was hoping we wouldn't be getting this game again. Last year it FROZE on me after the 4th day & I couldn't finish it. This year, I can't respond to anyone who talks to me. Plus how to play is just too vague for those of us who DON'T play games like this. I can see I'll have a house empty of decorations & full of frustration.
|Posted by: s0r0k4 Dec 25 2016, 12:28 AM|
highlight: Go to where Avery is in the town square. Bill is in the house to the bottom/right of him
|Posted by: IOU Dec 25 2016, 12:29 AM|
| Oh god YES!
And here comes the lag of everything
|Posted by: DollyMadison89 Dec 25 2016, 12:29 AM|
| Happy Holidays!
Got my two, can't wait to see what they look like.
|Posted by: Shokomon Dec 25 2016, 12:29 AM|
| IT CHRISTMA
Also, HURRAH, event!
Let's see what this is about!
Have to wait to catch an egg though.
Edit: Also, HAPPY HANUKKAH!!!
Because I found out that today is the first day of Hanukkah.
So Happy Holidays everybody!

| these glitches are so awesome i don't want to play the thing anymore
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Dec 25 2016, 12:31 AM|
|I'm going to have to wait to play this on PC cause phone ain't working right x_x|

|How do I round up the cats?|
|Posted by: DragonLady86 Dec 25 2016, 12:32 AM|
When editing/putting out new stuff. mouse the square cursor over anything and hit enter. it will ask if you want to move it or place it back in your inventory. even works on the bed and table that you started with.
|Posted by: Lodrelhai Dec 25 2016, 12:32 AM|
Also rugs apparently get put down on top of tables, not under them.
I do love that light blue rug though!
|Posted by: Guillotine Dec 25 2016, 12:32 AM|
|Oh dang, that's a pretty egg~ Looking forward to seeing what hatches from it!|
|Posted by: Vrack Dec 25 2016, 12:32 AM|
|Gah! I want to stay and play the event but I'm being forced to bed by my family! I'll have to wait until later to play this game. At least I got my two eggs, good luck to everyone else!|
|Posted by: angelicdragonpuppy Dec 25 2016, 12:32 AM|
|I love how tropical this Christmas has been. Alola, Moana, now Alhira... maybe it's a sign since I'm going to the Dominican this year|
|Posted by: Lurhstaap Dec 25 2016, 12:32 AM|
|I have to admit, the game does seem glitchier than last year. But I'm sure they'll have it fixed ASAP. It's only been up less than an hour.|
|Posted by: Data_Girl_3 Dec 25 2016, 12:33 AM|
| Oh, where's that hide and seek dragon hiding?
|Posted by: Fortune86 Dec 25 2016, 12:34 AM|
|Is there anyway to speed up in the sledding game?|
|Posted by: acm1923 Dec 25 2016, 12:35 AM|
|So how do you know you did everything for the day?|
|Posted by: Lurhstaap Dec 25 2016, 12:35 AM|
|Just bred my Pacified Aegis to Kingcrowne and have decided it is officially my favorite pairing for Pacified Aegis. Magnificent.|

|Posted by: 11th Dec 25 2016, 12:36 AM|
|Doing what I did last year, even if my game gets reset to day one again later. P: Who should I PM glitches I find to?|
|Posted by: DragonLady86 Dec 25 2016, 12:36 AM|
The instructions are at the bottom. Use SPACE or ENTER to talk to Perl. A/S/W/D or the arrows let you move arourd.
|Posted by: Ylvanne Dec 25 2016, 12:36 AM|
| Happy holidays everyone!!!
Thank you so much for the event and the new dragon! <3
|Posted by: Wends Dec 25 2016, 12:39 AM|
Hit the ice patches, avoid the obstacles. It's easily accomplishable in 14 seconds with hitting only 2 ice patches. Good luck!
|Posted by: DragonLady86 Dec 25 2016, 12:39 AM|
Assuming it works like last year, when you've done everything possible it will give you a message "end of the first day".
but last year was more straight forward with only one quest each day. So, maybe it's just "open world" concept and you can do most/all in a day.
basically, we don't know yet.
|Posted by: Shokomon Dec 25 2016, 12:40 AM|
Okay, so i'm not the only one this happened to:
(I got stuck here after trying to leave the North part of town back to the town square.)
Maybe I'll wait to play when it's morning...
|Posted by: Hanelli Dec 25 2016, 12:42 AM|
|Oh, that's it? After I deliver the package to Perl, I can't do anything else?|
|Posted by: LaHaine Dec 25 2016, 12:44 AM|
Avoided all obstacles, hit all ice patches, the max I've gotten is 36 seconds... The game is running slow for some of us I think
|Posted by: StormBirdRising Dec 25 2016, 12:44 AM|
Thanks, I am so clueless on these type of games, even though it was a similar game last year. Thanks.
|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Dec 25 2016, 12:44 AM|
| The intro graphic is cute. I can't wait to go see the awesome art in the extension of this year's game!
And congrats to whomever this year's spriter is. ^^
|Posted by: Nyxity Dec 25 2016, 12:44 AM|
|I knew I felt dread when I saw the event... I helped Hand and delivered something to Perl, got three types of things from him, went to my house, started putting things up and then when satisfied hit enter and since then I have been stuck in my doorway. Cleared cache, history, clicked the link for when you are stuck and refreshed. Ah... T-T|
|Posted by: Fortune86 Dec 25 2016, 12:45 AM|
Thank you for the advice, but even with hitting four ice patches and nothing else, I still have 40+ on the clock.
|Posted by: gigglymonkey12 Dec 25 2016, 12:45 AM|
So far I've only found one other thing besides Perl, but apparently there's some sledding one in the game(?) that I haven't found yet.
|Posted by: Lady_Nightfox Dec 25 2016, 12:46 AM|
| Ok I got stuck in the Pine Forest of un-escape-ability. I'll wait until tomorrow when it's fixed.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Festivus, Happy Holidays, Happy Sunday to all!
|Posted by: wingedcat Dec 25 2016, 12:46 AM|
|1 minute in and this holiday event is blowing my mind|
|Posted by: Process Dec 25 2016, 12:47 AM|
did you try the out of bounds button?
|Posted by: Zonatailurus Dec 25 2016, 12:47 AM|
| Anyone else get stuck in their own home? I went to edit it and when I came out of editing my character did this running motion to the door and then froze. Can't go back to editing mode, can't move, and resetting the game does nothing...
On another note: to those who are wondering, there's multiple activities you can do around town for decorations. You help the dragon east of the starting town, for example, with the cats. You can go to the post office too, and get an item to give to Pearl, which the postal worker will reward you for. When you travel through the teleporter there's a person who lost their glasses in a maze, as well as a hide and seek game with an orange dragon (haven't found them yet and can't due to glitch mentioned above). I checked around quite a bit before I got stuck and they, correct me if I'm wrong, seem to be the only four npcs at the moment that give you items.
|Posted by: Fortune86 Dec 25 2016, 12:47 AM|
| The sledding game is the second screen to the north, just slightly west of the pillow dragon.
How do you find something to give to Pearl?
|Posted by: gigglymonkey12 Dec 25 2016, 12:48 AM|
Go to the post office.
|Posted by: Lady_Nightfox Dec 25 2016, 12:48 AM|
Yes, and then I got stuck in a different location. It resets my incomplete things progress each time I do the reset so I'm just going to wait until it's all resolved.
|Posted by: Pinch of StarDust Dec 25 2016, 12:48 AM|
|Well I'm frustrated. Besides finding the glitches others have, having to click reset, I was back in my house for the umpteenth time and I saw there was a faded pencil symbol next to the sound so I clicked it and it took me upstairs? Then there was another faded symbol like a chest of drawers so I clicked on that a a blank purple dialog box appeared but I couldn't enter anything so I clicked reset and it appears I am forever stuck in my house upstairs.|
|Posted by: birdzgoboom Dec 25 2016, 12:48 AM|
|There are bugs hiding that didn't show up until now, and are now in the process of being squashed.
If you guys could hang tight for us for a little bit, many random major bugs should hopefully cease to exist.

Ah... I remember you from the last time this game came about. Poor coordinators. *Pats*
PS - I'm pretty chill (numb) this month, so hopefully I won't have a mental/emotional breakdown this time... and if I do begin to, I'll catch myself in time and just avoid typing anything on the forum. Cheers.

|Unfortunately, some bugs don't appear in testing, even if you're thorough. Sometimes they relate to scalability, for example, and it's very hard to test that sort of thing unless you're an actual game studio. I have every confidence that the DC "staff" are doing their best to make it work.|

I went up out of the main town, talked to Ned the Pie Maker, decided to go back down to the main town and then suddenly I'm in a small enclosed area of trees that I can't get out of.

The reset button only moves you back to your house. You will keep all the furniture
|Posted by: Nyxity Dec 25 2016, 12:57 AM|
I love you for sharing that.
I kind of miss being able to interact with more than people and dragons, though... like talk to the snowmen. The headless one was a nice touch last time.
|Posted by: Zonatailurus Dec 25 2016, 12:58 AM|
Your items won't disappear when you reset. Resetting mainly just gets your character unstuck.
|Posted by: Zonatailurus Dec 25 2016, 12:58 AM|
Pearl is in the forward facing house on the south west corner or the town center.

| I got stuck in the forest people have mentioned earlier. Did the sled race, saw the quilting dragon, then hit the edge of the map and tossed into the trees I couldn't get out of.
This is the location you get sent to if this helps in fixing the bug.

| Another possible glitch?
I can't get out of my house. I was playing fine ealier but accidently hit reset. Now I can't get out of the house at all. When I go through the front door, the screen loads but then just goes black.
I've tried resetting again multiple times, shutting down the computer. Nothing helps.
Help? Anyone? I'm using firefox on mac.
P.S. Also tried on chrome. Same problem.
|Posted by: Zonatailurus Dec 25 2016, 01:11 AM|
You hover your box selector over a part of the furniture and press the activation key (space), which will trigger a dialog box to appear with options, to do thing such as move, put back in the inventory, or toggle if it is a changeable piece of furniture (not all furniture can be toggled).
|Posted by: Leashedragon Dec 25 2016, 01:12 AM|
Get the square over them and hit enter. Then a little menu should pop up to return it to inventory or move it.
Unfortunately, mine keeps freezing when trying to remove a bunch of carrot windows that are randomly stuck in places. I'm not sure if it's the carrot window causing the issue, or the slightly transparent versions I have that I'm trying to get rid of.

I really loved last year's event, but I'm just not in an adventuring mood this time around. I loved how clean cut it was last year, (i.e completed a task brought you back to your house and completed the day). I'm not sure what the heck I am doing in this one, and I cannot remember where the houses were at nor the rest of the locations. I do, however, appreciate the effort and time people have put into this game. Seeing it again makes me smile.
|Posted by: Zonatailurus Dec 25 2016, 01:13 AM|
I had the same problem earlier, the problem kind of fixed itself (or those that are working on the game are really fast with fixes). I just waited and reseted a few time, finally was able to walk out the door after a couple of resets and browser closings.
|Posted by: Lodrelhai Dec 25 2016, 01:14 AM|
Post office is west of your house. North is where the new teleporter is.

What would be the best place to start actually doing something? Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks....but when in the furniture edit mode in my house it shows a white square outline, I've disappeared. I can move that square with the arrows all around my house but that is all. I tried clicking enter but nothing happens to the white square outline. The faded chest of drawers appears and when I click on that the purple blank dialog box shows up. When I click on the faded chest of drawers again I go back to the view of the white square outline.
I've been to the post office and delivered the package to Perl. What am I doing wrong?

the white outline is a guide for "I intended to place furniture here"
to place furniture the dresser lets you choose from what you've collected doing the quests

| I loved where the game was going until I entered my house, then tried to go back out but the game seemed to have frozen? The little music was still going and my computers fine, but no matter how much I refresh the page or even reopen the thing, I can't continue. x'D Guess I won't figure out how the whole game was meant to be played...
P.S. Unlike others who have mentioned they got stuck in their house, I didn't even own any furniture to place yet to get me stuck. x'D My house is just the death house and doesn't want me to move so I can escape. x'D
|Posted by: s0r0k4 Dec 25 2016, 01:35 AM|
| Any hints on the hide and seek? It's driving me crazy and I've been all over the map.
The sledding thing...try restarting the browser/re-opening the page? I noticed mine was lagging, the ice wouldn't even speed it up any (or sometime it would, but after a second it wouldn't work any more - you would literally see yourself slow down to a crawl) And my "best" time was 25 seconds . Restarting the browser and reloading the game fixed it for me...and indeed it was easy to beat in 13 seconds flat.
|Posted by: Kakaru_of_DOOM Dec 25 2016, 01:36 AM|
| Yay, this event looks fun! I hope nobody will notice that my character seems to have forgotten where everything is...
Wow, though, the lag is overwhelming. I hope that tone down after today.

They're in the orange tree in the grassy patch, near where you first meet them. Their wing nubs stick out, and move a little bit.

|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Dec 25 2016, 01:40 AM|
The breed limits page hasn't had holidays on it ever since limits on bred holidays were removed. I do not think the page can actually correctly list those dragons because there are now two different limits. It is something that some of us on the mod team have been talking about trying to return, but TJ's been really busy with holiday stuff and hasn't had time to chime in. If you want, you could create a Suggestions thread on it (not sure if it's a glitch and would go in Help or if it was an unintended side effect or just an unavoidable one), but its own thread in a separate place would gain a lot more attention than posting about it here in News, where it keeps getting quickly buried. ;3

| Whoop. Unstuck... and I got to meet "Will the Bench".
Thanks for the kitties, Odeen! Though I wonder where mine from last year is now?
EDIT: Ah... nevermind. I found her!
|Posted by: missy20201 Dec 25 2016, 01:43 AM|
| Hah! I'm so glad we're back in town with Perl and 'Snowa'! I haven't run into any 'major' glitches yet, although I did have to refresh when I froze the game by putting furniture next to each other, and they'd start stacking (one would jump onto the same tile as another, and trying to move one off that tile seemed to confuse the game!)
So far all I see are some minor clipping issues, and one random square of white background/snow that clips over Snowa so s/he can hide behind it entirely
Got my eggies too! I'm excited for them to hatch!

|Posted by: jewel21 Dec 25 2016, 01:47 AM|
| I don't understand this game. I went to the post office, agreed to deliver a package to Bill and did exactly that. I went back to the post office, got 3 items to decorate my house with (a giant stuffed lion, a couch, and a moose head.) Now what? It's not saying the day is over, going back to the post office just says to come back tomorrow and Perl just keeps asking if I've decorated my house. Yes, Perl. I have decorated it. I've wandered around and people just babble stuff to me.
Is there anything else that needs to be done? No one is approaching me for tasks. I'm so confused.
|Posted by: greycat Dec 25 2016, 01:50 AM|

|Posted by: tishavara Dec 25 2016, 01:50 AM|
I found him behind a building with only the tail sticking out. I wrote in white.
Up from the orange tree there is a guy behind a counter across from him you should see a gold tail moving about.
|Posted by: s0r0k4 Dec 25 2016, 01:50 AM|
On the other hand, also found the haunted named bench!
EDIT: Nope, game not glitched. Hiding place was just different for me. The "move a little bit" part were the key words! (My Bord was hiding behind the column of the house directly north of Sanne)

You have to to click on "move to inventory" if you don´t want to have your furniture on the place you like to have it. Than it will be return to you inventory and is not longer in your house.
Well, it seems to be a glitch on the harbour of Alhira. I´m frozen. Nothing works. Load the game second times but no progress.I´m in the harbour of Alhira. Right hand, going north to the wood bridge. If I would goo.

|Anyone else find the hedge maze? (I'm still trying to find where the hide and seek dragon's gone D: )|
|Posted by: Laurelin Dec 25 2016, 02:23 AM|
| Alright. I was frozen but I clicked "Out of bounds? Click to reset your location." And now I´m back home. But seems to be glitchy. Now I´m frozen at home. I only see a black picture instead of my home. I think I will wait until glitches are repaired.
But very nice until this point. Thank you developers!
The hedgemaze is in Alhira down to the market. On the shore . You have to walk south.
You have to click "enter" than your furniture is on the right place and when you leave your house it should be on the place if you are back.

Yes. I get the irony of not being able to find them.

| Game looks fun, however..what's very quickly ruining it for me is the house editing glitch.....
also, where is everyone else getting the quests from? Perhaps I have just ran around too much and not found anything x.x but yeah...
Anyway, house editing glitch = not fun when it keeps messing up.
|Posted by: Gealach Dec 25 2016, 02:28 AM|
Where is that?
|Posted by: Fortune86 Dec 25 2016, 02:30 AM|
Through the teleporter and head south. There is a girl in front of a maze.
|Posted by: andromedae Dec 25 2016, 02:31 AM|
| Ok, so now there's a Holly Dragon in the center of Nulhora that I can't talk to?
There's also a man standing next to the Teleport house that I can't interact with.
Edit: Can talk to the dragon now.
|Posted by: xXLatiasxXxLatiosXx Dec 25 2016, 02:34 AM|
| Aaaa! I love these type of events!! Can't wait to play it!
Also is there any way to reset your game? I accidentally misspelled the name I wanted to put in the game and I clicked "Play" before I noticed and now I'm distressed about it. OTL
|Posted by: Kiwiana Dec 25 2016, 02:34 AM|
And yes I clicked enter and everything looks nice and stays until I leave the house lol. Maybe its bugged^^
Just did the maze, happy I found the glasses, wasn't as hard as I feared lol
|Posted by: Fortune86 Dec 25 2016, 02:34 AM|
|Can anyone please tell me where the hide and seek dragon is?|

Thanks a lot, found it!
|Posted by: Coyote Dec 25 2016, 02:47 AM|
He'll be somewhere around the area that you initially talked to him. It's in a slightly different place for everyone...
|Posted by: jewel21 Dec 25 2016, 02:48 AM|
Geez, thank you. Apparently I don't know West from East. Rounded up the cats, now there's a hide and seek thing? I want to go to bed, lol.
|Posted by: Fortune86 Dec 25 2016, 02:49 AM|
I haven't even found him the first time yet.
|Posted by: andromedae Dec 25 2016, 02:51 AM|
| I feel like since there's 3 activities (that I know of) taking place in Nulhora, there should be another 3 in Alhira instead of 2. If only a third could be found (if there is one). I can't seem to talk to this guy at the pub behind the counter btw. Or the guy on a pirate ship.
Edit: Can now talk to the Pub guy. Feeling really sick so I'm off to bed. Hoping we can know more about the game and have it function smoothly tomorrow.
|Posted by: Fortune86 Dec 25 2016, 02:54 AM|
I found him!
Through the teleporter and to the east.

| I havent got a 'day complete' message...(is there even one?) Do you NEED to complete the sledding minigame to complete the day? 'Cuz that's a pain in the neck and I don't want to fail it again...I delivered the package to Perl, and finished rounding up cats and found (finally) the hiding dragon.
Am I missing a task?
Edit: I did the maze too.
Edit 2: Finished the sled race. still no 'day complete' message.

| I delivered the package to Bill, not Perl. I did talk to Perl though.
Rounded up the cats.
Beat the sledding game.
Found the glasses at the center of the maze.
And STILL have not found Bord. >^< Is he like inside or outside? Do you have to randomly click enter in front of items until you find him or is it something you can see from above or something??? C'mon! Give me a little hint here! The one that he is hiding in the area you initially talk to him in was helpful but I need more! TT_TT

| Merry Christmas everyone! The eggs look wonderful! Can't wait to see the hatchlings and adults
So far I've done the Sled Race (just under 18 seconds ) and delivered a parcel to Bill and thus far received:
Art nouveau Chair
Green table (small): In the inventory the table graphic doesn't show up, only the text in the menu
Hannukah bed (large)
Miscellaneous mint plush
Toys chicken: in the inventory the graphic doesn't show up, only the text in the menu.
I do remember receiving both items that don't show up as a graphic from Bill and the guy from the Sled Race though. Once I select them, they do show up in my house.
|Posted by: Chaos Rider Dec 25 2016, 03:28 AM|
|I'd almost enjoy this game better than last year's. if Bord were in the same place for everyone. With the size of the new map he doesn't need to hide. He could be standing out in the open and I still wouldn't find him *grrrr*|

Hide and seek:
- From teleporter house, go to the town, you will see the market. Then go right to another screen. Find https://i.imgur.com/bfoHef6.png (right and a bit south, near some dragons on the beach) and agree to play hide and seek.
Reported hiding areas: https://i.imgur.com/8LqcLFG.png, https://i.imgur.com/iPhcmb0.png (notice tail behind roof), https://i.imgur.com/fZPeMI3.png and https://i.imgur.com/TM4tRgm.png
- After that, from the Teleporter house, keep going south until you find https://i.imgur.com/xI2JUAL.png (you will go through the market, then a bridge and then through a beach as well)
- Go to the Dog Park (North of Alhira) and talk to https://i.imgur.com/8fEydcM.png and help him find his lost dog Patch
https://i.imgur.com/HQ5NtPC.jpg for orientation. Maze is in number 4, Hide-and-seek is in number 10, lost dog is in number 8.

|Posted by: Laura-Lana Dec 25 2016, 04:20 AM|

Can anyone help me find the maze. I get stuck on the docks and can't continue southward from there, because all the ways seem to be deadends. What am I missing?

from the docks go west then south for a while
|Posted by: Nine Dec 25 2016, 04:22 AM|

|Posted by: Shay555031 Dec 25 2016, 04:22 AM|
When I found him, he was behind a pillar and all I could see was his folded wings on either side of the pillar.

Cleared my cache, but no different.
|Posted by: Sapphira_Majoram Dec 25 2016, 04:33 AM|

For anyone else still searching and finding nothing behind pillars or buildings, try here!
Stand there and wait to see if there's any flickers on either side of the tree from his wings animation.

Um.. most of the quests give you three items. How many did the quest with the dragons who wants sweaters on the cats want? I only got one item, because the game froze after he gave me one. I don't know if he give you two more or not.
|Posted by: CharonDusk Dec 25 2016, 04:55 AM|
| Okay, so word of advice; don't try the sledding thing on a kindle. It lagged out mine so bad it crashed. Twice. And rather than acknowledge I beat it, it made me do the game again both times. Despite it obviously knowing I had won because it didn't give me anything the repeated times.
Edit; Okay, make that three times now. Despite me being in a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT AREA. Checkpoints? What are those?

| Really pretty egg; can't wait to see the stages of it. ^^
And cool event! I wasn't expecting a game for my first Christmas event.
Oh man, that text scrolling noise is killer, though, especially when sped up. :S And using the arrow keys doesn't lock to the game, so every time I move up or down with those the page moves, same with space...
Anyway, looks really awesome! Very unique, and I can tell a lot of effort went into it. I will do it more later.
|Posted by: MissK. Dec 25 2016, 05:18 AM|
| Wow, this is quite the massive map for the mini game, I'm a little bit overwhelmed by that sort of thing but it seems like a well-made game and the interactions with people were quite fun. Patch staring at me intently made me giggle.
However I'm not sure I understand how to use the editing mode to decorate my house. It seems that every time I exit the house and go back in everything is gone. It's happened twice so far and I don't really feel like attempting it again if it's just going to disappear.
Edit: Welp...I attempted to reload the game to see if perhaps the furniture reloaded and now I'm standing outside my house, frozen. At least I finished the quests for today but hopefully it might be fixed by tomorrow...

What I'm most excited about is that my row of badges is full now. Wow, have been playing around on DC for a loooooooooooong time.
Not really liking the game, though. Last year was fun until the moment my pretty stocking badge turned into that boring present. Had I known before, I wouldn't have completed the game. Still a bit miffed about that.

I can't believe another even larger mini-game like this has been made, incredible work to all those involved, thank you! I feel like it's quite a shame though that this game is released during one of the most busiest times of the year- I get that it fits the season theme, but I can't be the only one spending time with family and feeling a bit sad to not be able to spend more time on this amazing little game. Fingers crossed it gets released afterwards for a replay like the original did

|Posted by: CharonDusk Dec 25 2016, 05:55 AM|
| 5, from what I've read.
I've given this up as a bad job, after the game decided I STILL haven't done the sled game enough Apparently checkpoints only work when they WANT to work with this. That's if they even exist outside of the ING SLED GAME.

Dragonpaw for hide and seek, after exiting the teleport house in Alhira, Go right on the path with golden diamonds on it until you reach the second grassy area, and there should be a gold dragon there.

The sled racing game is way up north in Valkemare.You should meet a kid there

In Alkyria, you have to find a small gold dragon.

Merry Cristmas and Thank You for this nice Event!

Got my two eggs, now off to explore.
|Posted by: Kiwiana Dec 25 2016, 06:36 AM|
| Hm I did all the quest, but got no message - do we get one at all?
does the delivery quest have more than one package to deliver? he told me to come back tomorrow, so I didn't check yet. but thats the only thing I could imagine I am missing.
|Posted by: Laura-Borealis Dec 25 2016, 06:37 AM|
| Merry Christmas all! Happy holidays!
I got my eggs last night... so pretty! I haven't tried the event yet. Not sure if I want to attempt it now, on my phone, or wait till later when I have PC access. Oh the joys of travel! Is it working well on mobile?
|Posted by: Mysfytt Dec 25 2016, 06:43 AM|
| Still stuck in the trees when I moved to a next screen. Going back in doesn't help. It says click to reset but click what? On a tablet. Help.
Also, found a heap of cats but the dragon just said the same thing. Is there more than 7?
|Posted by: Cameko Dec 25 2016, 06:44 AM|
| The concept of having a classic wintry/snowy scenery and a tropical area with a beach on the contrary is quite nice. People down under celebrate Christmas in their summer months, so it does make sense to me that there is another side.
I like this event just like last year. Thank you so much! And the eggs are pretty. Can't wait to see the hatchies. ♥

|How do I activate the teleporter?|
|Posted by: Cameko Dec 25 2016, 06:47 AM|
You have to talk to the dragon. He will ask you if you want to teleport.
|Posted by: GuardianOfBelief Dec 25 2016, 06:51 AM|
The only kid I found just said "That dragon up ahead won't let anyone get by."

|Walk a little to your left and you can go upwards then.|
|Posted by: Sapphira_Majoram Dec 25 2016, 06:56 AM|
I think you're going too far north.
The teleporter building is just above your house really. If you go out of your house and then go north a bit, you'll see a HUGE building there. The biggest around. Go into that one and then inside there'll be a dragon you can talk to. If you go from that map area into another map area, then you've gone too far and need to head back to the center of town again.
Does this help?

same here, did everything and got no message that I am finished for the day. also saw someone mentioning a ladder which I do not have
Edit: I also do not have a stuffed lion, only two different chicken plushies. guess that is from which of the two packages you get to deliver.
so I really would like to know if someone got the finished for today-message, but noone wants to answer that question so far

His house is in the city center right in front of the willow tree.
Had the same problem finding him , the map on the wiki proved to be useful.

I got Bill for the parcel delivery quest. It might vary from player to player who you have to send the package to.
|Posted by: Felischia Dec 25 2016, 08:08 AM|
Package delivery. It's either Pearl or Bill. For me it was Pearl.
|Posted by: Dogzilla Dec 25 2016, 08:09 AM|

ok, i'm thinking the missing kitty is a glitch, but i don't want to go back to the beginning again *sigh*

Where is Glasses in Maze quest?
EDIT: NVM! Found it!
|Posted by: Wends Dec 25 2016, 08:24 AM|
| Well, went to bed, slept for a goodly number of hours, came back to the game.
STILL glitched. STILL stuck by my own rug. STILL can't move, can't access inventory to delete the darned thing, can't do a single thing in the game other than toggle the music on and off.
To say this is mildly frustrating would be an incredible understatement.
It's now been seven hours since this glitched (and since I posted that glitch in the forum)... and clearing cookies, clearing history and doing hard reboots doesn't help.
Game coordinators? Help? Please? I'd /really/ like to play this dumb thing. Just looking at my silly sprite standing in his doorway in front of a carrot rug is frustrating as snot.
For those who haven't seen, DO NOT DO THIS:
You will be trapped in house-hell forever, apparently, because you can't walk on top of rugs. Hopefully this is fixed before tomorrow so I can actually finish the quests for today; the only reason I know of the rest of the events is my daughter pestered me already this morning to help her on her scroll, so I got to see all five on hers (and get her to not make the same mistake as me when she was decorating). Just hoping that's not a permanently game ending mistake.
|Posted by: SkyWolf25 Dec 25 2016, 08:28 AM|
| 1825 view and not even a crack? Really, new eggs?
Anyways, am back to finish the quests. Quest on!
|Posted by: Ruby Eyes Dec 25 2016, 08:28 AM|
Funny, for me that was a boy (Erik Erikson) Also, that is actually east
Also, parcel delivery seems to vary between people: PERL or BILL.
BORD seems to hide right behind the orange banana tree, or a house, or behind a pillar (his wings stick out )
Decoration item rewards seem to vary between people, too.
I wonder what other things are different

| I did all 5!
What about the person and the dragon I talked to and they walked north in Nulhora?
|Posted by: olympe Dec 25 2016, 08:35 AM|
| Me, I cannot decorate my house any more. I could delete the furniture I had, and use the furniture from my inventory exactly once. No way to move them to another spot (the game got stuck, but could be restarted with F5. However, the glitch repeats if I try to move furniture again.) Also, even if I put the furniture back into my inventory, I cannot place it again or the game gets stuck, too. Which is pretty annoying for me, too.
ETA: What does it take to complete day 1? I played with a bored Bord, delivered a parcel, found the glasses and did the sled mini game. Oh, and I caught the cats for that dragon. Anything I missed?
|Posted by: Wends Dec 25 2016, 08:36 AM|
Multiple times, actually. So nope, still doesn't work. :/

|I can confirm that it's not possible to walk over rugs so be careful if you place them in front of the door or you'll get stuck if you don't remove them. The terrain tag for these objects might be wrong.|

|Posted by: s0r0k4 Dec 25 2016, 09:49 AM|
You have to go through the portal.
For the hide and seek, once you exit the teleporter building, head East until you're on the next map screen. Talk to Bord.
For the maze, once you exit the teleporter building, head South. Waaay South out of town.

I walk on them fine.
The only problem I have is all my decorations are gone when I leave the house. So I after I finished the quests I decorated and left the game hopping it will stay come tomorrow's quests.

From the guy with the felled trees, head back up a bit until you see the bridge into town (but don't go in), then head East as much as you can, and South again - it's in the same grassy area, just more eastward

move the select cube over it and select you can then move, activate some items or put them back in your stash

I think I'm going to pass on the game. I managed to get through it last year because every time you finished something you were told where to go next. This year you have to figure it out on your own. I delivered the package to Perl and am now just wandering around with no clue what to do. It's frustrating and boring. I don't like these types of games at the best of times, this I just can't do.
|Posted by: Asketil Dec 25 2016, 10:52 AM|
|The decorating is being very finiky on me and keeps freezing up and putting item back I removed o.o|

|So do you get anything for completing the game? I really don't like it and find it frustrating and not fun at all.|
|Posted by: Shadowflame Dec 25 2016, 11:00 AM|
|I navigated away from the page and when I go back to "continue playing" I can't move at all. Does that automatically get fixed later or?|
|Posted by: jewel21 Dec 25 2016, 11:02 AM|
Thank you so much! I was tired of having to redecorate over and over again only to have it disappear. This worked!
|Posted by: CitrusFlavours Dec 25 2016, 11:03 AM|
Wait, you delivered a package to Perl? Mine was to Bill (I think?) I guess there's a variation on who the packages go to?
Every time I decorate, when I try to put a certain three items down, the game freezes so I have to restart. Guess I can't have any art nouveau wardrobes or cat rugs in my house

|Posted by: Alia Dec 25 2016, 11:06 AM|
| The eggs are lovely.
I'm kinda sad that the game is so slow on my iPad, I'm probably not going to be able to play it. It took my character like five minutes after leaving Romeo to get back to the transporter building. The village is slightly faster on moving, but the other town is basically unplayable for me.
Thanks for the work that went into the game.
|Posted by: Beldarius Dec 25 2016, 11:08 AM|
| ...Game froze right when I was decorating my house. I refreshed, only to find myself back in Alhira with all my progress lost. I'm NOT going to spend two hours just to get that progress back - the lag is so terrible, it takes me a minute or two just to get past a single screen. ...Oh, right, this game eats 1 million RAM on my laptop. WHAT?
I'm not going to play this game until all the glitches and lag are fixed. Seriously, I'm about ready to punch the next person who comes to my room to ask me why I'm swearing.

|I have absolutely no clue where Bord is, I have ran around what I think is the whole map twice. Can he be behind the roof of a building?? Is it randomized each time?|
|Posted by: LaHaine Dec 25 2016, 11:24 AM|
|If you are confused with the game, read below. This is just so everyone can have an opportunity to play the game too.
You are free to put this in the wiki, if you want to.
I'm keeping this post updated, so keep checking back for any tips.
Since this is spoilery, I will just link to my previous post:
For each area (the numbers are the same as in the general map):
What quests are there to do?
As of December 31st, Day 7 of the event, there are 6 repeatable quests and 6 story quests*:
* Day 1 story quest was simply to talk with Perl at the beginning of the game, so I'm not counting with it.
Is there something that tells you when you finish everything?
You get a green checkmark on the icons on top of your screen. These reset everyday.
You can only deliver a package to Bill, Perl, Janus or Galys, it's random each day. If you delivered to Bill, there's nothing to do with Perl.
I had to redo all my quests because the checkmarks were gone, what happened?
The checkmarks reset daily, so you can repeat the quests to get new furniture for the house. You don't need to do them if you don't want to. Your old rewards don't go away.
The checkmark on the book means that you have completed all story quests.
How do I activate the story quests?
Enter your house, refresh your browser and exit again.
Exiting my house doesn't activate the story quest.
If going in and out of your house doesn't activate the new quests, please try the following options: refresh your browser, hard refresh your browser, clear your cache, reset your position, change browsers.
Avery won't talk to me in the Temple, what do I do next?
Clear your cache, exit the room and enter again. If that doesn't work, reset your position to go back to your house (click the Reset text below the game instructions) then clear your cache.
How do you clear your cache?
Who is Gladys/Galys?
Gladys' name was changed to Galys. They are the same person.
Where is Galys?
Why can't I give the parcel to Gladys/Galys?
Glitch. Try to refresh while in her house, according to:
How do I beat the Sledding game?
Avoid the obstacles and try to go through the ice to speed up. I find the right side better than the left.
The game is perfectly doable in the 18 seconds or less. If you are taking a huge amount of time (30+), your game is probably slowed down. Try to change browser, close and reopen the tabs, etc. I had the same problem, I'm not sure how I made mine normal again...
How do I activate the Teleporter?
Talk to the dragon next to it. Talk to the belly, not the head.
Where's the hide and seek dragon hiding?
Bord hides in different places for people. Use https://forums.dragcave.net/index.php?showtopic=177178 for help.
Reported areas: https://i.imgur.com/8LqcLFG.png, https://i.imgur.com/iPhcmb0.png (notice tail behind roof), https://i.imgur.com/fZPeMI3.png and https://i.imgur.com/TM4tRgm.png
I believe he's always outside and in the same area, so don't run around to other screens.
How many cats are there to round up?
The dragon stops you when you are done, don't worry about counting.
How do I round up the cats?
Get next to them and press space. They move away quickly, so be prepared to press space.

| While I really like the idea and the continuity with last year's event, I have to admit I'm not a big fan of the execution.
The (kind of) open world feel is a nice touch, but a quest marker, a map or something would be really useful to help people find quests faster since running around aimlessly interacting with everything for 12 days just to find a quest (or multiples if Day 1 is any indication) will just get tedious fast. Personally I almost gave up trying to find the maze quest.
Not to mention the busy time period this event falls in.
Also, end of day message? What end message?
|Posted by: The Dragoness Dec 25 2016, 11:51 AM|
I'm having a similiar problem. My character either freezes inside my house or takes one step and the next screen loads...and loads...and loads. The bar doesn't even pop up, just a black screen. Resetting my location/refreshing the page only restarts the cycle
|Posted by: Cassie_Fenix Dec 25 2016, 11:53 AM|

| I didn't get an end of the day message, but I did manage to complete all five quests (assuming there are only five). Maybe there isn't going to be a message? Even though that would at least help us realize when we're done...
Alternately, maybe these five quests were meant to keep us busy for a few days. If that's the case... oops, I guess!
|Posted by: Wolfs_Bane Dec 25 2016, 11:59 AM|
I could've sworn that's what it said the last time we had the rpg game. Something along the lines of:
"Would you like to end the day?"
Unless I'm remembering it wrong. In which if that is indeed the case, I do apologize for any misunderstanding.
Also, much like everyone else, it would be nice if we had a quest log or a book telling us our objectives. I've played ((and watched)) meany rpg maker games. And most of them have a log book of some kind or an objective in order to see just what we are supposed to do.
Running around blind isn't really all that fun. Unless your in a horror game, running from a killer in a bear mascot costume.

| Last year I didn't had any problems with event, but now...
When I click on "pencil" at my house - I get black screen (music plays but nothing happens).
Sometimes I get stuck on entering/exiting houses.
I delivered the present from Post office, went left, talked with Gilded Bloodscale Dragon, but when I click on any cat - it teleports inside the fence, but after that I get black screen (music plays but nothing happens). If I reset the game - all cats are out (so I can't progress any further).
Something somewhere is really wrong...

| Ugh, I just can't play the game on my tablet. The screen flashes black every second (or more often) and it gives me a headache after only a minute or so. Maybe when I get home in a few days, but does the game even allow you to catch up or will I just miss out?
I am looking forward to grabbing the new eggs when I unlock!

However, I miss my cat from last year
I was so happy to get one as a present at the very end of the game - and sad at the same time, because it was the end of the game and I wouldn't get to spend time with it. Now the game returned with an empty house.. no kitty at home anymore. *sob*
I soooo hope it returns somewhen later in the game !

| Beautiful new egg -- greens and golds maybe for the new dragon? I am anxious to see. The eggs are very easy to catch right now. I fought lag to get two last night but decided to abandon one and try for one with a z-code. I actually saw one in the coast at 12:27, went to my scroll and abandoned an egg, went back to the coast and it was still sitting there at 12:29!
I can't seem to summon much interest in the new game. I'm sure I will join in because I have participated in all the past events, but I'm completely unfamiliar with this sort of game and struggled last year to get through it and it sounds like a lot of folk are having trouble getting stuck again this year.
Oh, before I forget . . .

I'm enjoying the game, but seem to be missing two reward items. I've done the 5 quests but only have 13 items.

I could echo all of that. This is so awesome. I don't know why, but this little game makes me absurdly happy, I love everything about it. I spent some time exploring the maps, discovering so many cool new things, but also meeting old friends and acquaintances - why, even Quilt is still there, happily knitting and getting angry if you try to step on his yarn, lol! And those maps are *huge*! Can't wait for tomorrow and the next bunch of quests. Oh, and I have a feeling we will have another shifting-things-around game, teehee.
So thank you, TJ and everyone involved, for making this happen! I wish we could have chosen a colour for our character's outfit like last year, but apart from that, it's perfect.

|Okay, FINALLY finished the game, after it decided I just HAD to do the sledding game again, it's just so much fun after all! Felt like some kind of Twilight Zone time-loop Anyway, done that and all the other quests AND get the checkpoint to save to my house. Turns out there was no point, though, because whenever I try to decorate, it freezes the moment I select something Hope this gets fixed for tomorrow.|
|Posted by: Ruby Eyes Dec 25 2016, 01:43 PM|
| So ...how do you PLACE items?
I click the pen. I click the drawer icon. I select an item using the up and down arrow keys - and now? How do I place the item I selected? None of the usual suspect keys (enter, space, tab, escape, back, left and right arrows) seems to do that. I also cannot get out of edit mode anymore at that point, no matter what I click or do - except F5.
How do I make starter furniture STAY IN THE INVENTORY?
I click the pen.
I move the marker square to the initial furniture, hit space, select "return to inventory" and hit enter.
Every time I click the pen and leave the house, upon returning, it's all back. If I just do F5 (hard or soft) in any stage of decoration, it's back to starter furniture ONLY.
Couldn't this part of the game have been a drag 'n drop thing? *sighs*
|Posted by: cbussiere Dec 25 2016, 01:48 PM|
| Is Bord actually visible on the map? Or do you have to interact with trees and such? He's a sneaky little fellow...
Edit: Also, does resetting really undo your progress? Or will you keep the furniture from quests you've completed? I've gotten stuck, it seems.
Edit again: Resetting does not undo all your progress, and you keep your furniture.
|Posted by: Ravensilver Dec 25 2016, 01:50 PM|
I interacted with stuff, and found him behind a tree (it actually looked like I was *in* the tree... ^^;; ).
|Posted by: Laura-Borealis Dec 25 2016, 01:53 PM|
Hitting enter works for me, for placing items. W,A,S, and D work for me to move items. But when I leave the house, everything goes back into the inventory. It won't stay placed.
I also can't find the guy who I'm supposed to deliver the package to, and it's been long enough now that I can't remember his name. Bill, maybe? Can't find the teleporter either. I heard it was just north of my own house, but I looked there and couldn't interact with anything.
I did gather all the cats and did the sledding, though.
Is there a guide, or a help thread? I looked a little while ago and didn't find either.

The GAME OMG. *hates* *so much hate* It's very, very slow for me, no matter how many times I restart/refresh/etc. I figured out how to run, which helps a minuscule amount. I really, really don't like RPG games in the first place, I cried multiple times last year getting stuck in the stupid quests, and now we have it again this year?! I was hoping it would be something different this year.

|I'm breeding my remaining stock into the AP. Just wanted to publicly issue a huge thanks to the members of the Birthday Gifting Club for their incredible generosity this year. Thanks to being overrun by gifts of G2 holidaykin earlier in the month, I'm being able to breed FAR more perfect G3 checkers into the AP this year, rather than just as-pretty-as-I-can-manage evengens. Even though most of the pairings aren't ones I like enough to plan to keep eggs from to continue the line on my own scroll, I find it extremely satisfying to look at each new set of perfect checkers being born and imagining how happy they'll make other people. So thank you very much.|

They're in Nulhora, somewhere in the northwest if I recall correctly. In one of the wild areas there's an NPC who says something about a dragon who really likes cats, they're in that area.

I have the same question
|Posted by: Marie19R Dec 25 2016, 03:06 PM|
|Bord seems to stay sorta close to where you first saw him, but he hides well. Like, I went around the place three times before I found him and I only saw him because it's animated.|
|Posted by: walkinslow Dec 25 2016, 03:06 PM|
Not sure if his hiding place is the same in every game, but in mine, he was hiding very close to where we started out. I ran all over the map in search of him and then stumbled upon him by mistake when I went back and tried to walk behind a column. (hint, hint)
ETA: Big hole now! We should have a first hatchie any minute!
|Posted by: Jazeki Dec 25 2016, 03:09 PM|
|Is the glasses quest down by the ship or have I gone too far?|
|Posted by: BatPopsicle Dec 25 2016, 03:11 PM|
In my game he was in the same area. There is a building with two black poles with gold accents. He was cleverly hiding behind the pole on the right. But I have seen where some people found him behind the edge of a roof or other objects.
|Posted by: s0r0k4 Dec 25 2016, 03:12 PM|
| For me, Bord was hiding behind the columns here:
There were 2 other areas people posted pictures of though -
Behind the orange plant near his original location:
and behind the building here(his tail is sticking out from behind the roof):
|Posted by: Angelina Gienah Dec 25 2016, 03:19 PM|
|Based on what the wiki says and what else I've seen, Bord always hides in the same map chunk|
|Posted by: prpldrgnfr Dec 25 2016, 03:19 PM|
| So can anyone tell me what to do to get off the dock/bridge/whatever in the tropical part? I just wanna get to the maze so I can be done with this.
ETA: I'm trying to go south and I'm at the edge where one screen is supposed to change to the next, and it just.won.t move. But the water does.
|Posted by: s0r0k4 Dec 25 2016, 03:27 PM|
| Erm you shouldn't be on the docks? Start on the map where the building with the Teleporter is, and head straight down. Pass between the Inn and the Pub, and just keep going South. You should be able to cross that bridge into the grasslands.
(If you're on the docks, you'll need to move West first)

|Posted by: Ashywolf Dec 25 2016, 03:53 PM|
| After doing all the quests the map section with Bord is terribly laggy. This is the only map area like this for me. It is really bad, feels like there is a memory leak somewhere.
Bord was here for me:
|Posted by: cbussiere Dec 25 2016, 03:53 PM|
| Phew, I finally found Bord under that roof. I'm assuming he has just a few set spots (maybe even just those three) and randomly moves to one. I think I'm done with questing now, so it's time to decorate!
So, a primarily white Western with a gold mane/frill and green eyes? I guess it's a bit early to form judgements, but I'm still excited about the color scheme. I'm also excited to see what other markings it gains when it grows, since I'm assuming it won't just be mostly white. My guess is ribbon-like stripes, just based on the egg. Hopefully the green will be more of the foliar hue of the egg than the seafoam color that the eyes currently are. Also, green and gold are interesting choices for a snow-based dragon, assuming the codes are telling.
Come to think of it, isn't it unusual for a Western hatchling to already have premature wings? I hope that means the adult will have very large and prominent wings, I love big wings.
|Posted by: prpldrgnfr Dec 25 2016, 03:53 PM|
| Finally figured out you actually need to click *on* the part that says click to reset your location, not just click anywhere.
Yay, I'm unstuck!!!!

However, I completed all the quests (mail, cats, sledding, maze and hide-and-seek), decorated my house before going to the other town for those quests, and when I came back, my decorations were gone! I was expecting to get some kind of end-of-day message, but I was simply greeted by an empty house.
Edit: Also, selecting some of the furniture causes the game to freeze.

|Posted by: walkinslow Dec 25 2016, 04:12 PM|
No day complete message this year. To make your decorations permanent, refresh (F5) when you're done. F5 also works against freezing (at least for me).

Before you leave the house, do a hard refresh (F5). Then the furniture will stay where you placed it.

|Posted by: walkinslow Dec 25 2016, 05:19 PM|
I think only the total number of new holiday dragons on your scroll counts.
Don't do a hard refresh (= Ctrl+F5) since that will clear your cache and cookies. Just refresh (F5).
|Posted by: cbussiere Dec 25 2016, 05:23 PM|
| Woo, I've finished decorating~. I had very many freezes, items seemingly randomly not wanting to be placed next to certain walls, items going underneath rugs, items randomly warping to other items' locations when I try to move them, items randomly warping after I refresh, and one time when I clicked on the pencil I was teleported outside my house. What an adventure. |D But I really like the fact that we can toggle some items and that you can place as many of a certain item as you want, I'm looking forward to tomorrow's items! If we get as many each day as we did today, I'm going to be wishing I had more rooms. At least if not, we won't have to spend so much time finding the quests. But if there's one thing I want, it's for rugs to be permanently beneath all other items, that would open up so many options.

I was in the alternate world, I needed to return home. The portal is in the house with the two waterfalls in the other alternate world.
I can't figure how to decorate my house. The two dimensional floorplan is confusing for me. I've just stored everything. Would anyone be willing to share their house plans so I can figure out what I'm doing?
|Posted by: Drakelina Dec 25 2016, 05:59 PM|
|Well my character has refused to start moving with either the WASD keys or the arrow keys. I got stuck in stairs that lead to a 2nd floor, and when I tried to reset, I ended up at my house, but unable to move at all. There is nothing blocking my way, I just seem to have no control over the character at all now. I have reset quite a few times now.|

| What out of bounds button? I get some text to that effect as it loads but there is nothing to click and it just loads automatically and I'm where I was.
Tried again, all I get is the text.
out of bounds? Click to reset your location
No button or anything to click.
I bash the text but nothing.
Then the load bar goes and I'm in the trees.
bash the two colored dots and the move arrows.

A lot of gorgeous sprites in this game--want all the toys that were at the tropical market RIGHT NOW, and some of the trees (especially that frozen willow) are so lovely! And, of course, the dragons are adorable. As are some of the male NPCs. Muahahaha!

You have cats and tiny dragons you could add to you house? Could you share a picture I am curious .w.
|Posted by: fuzzbucket Dec 25 2016, 06:17 PM|
Well, spoiler - the cats are kind of a bit north of the reindeer enclosure you may recall from last year. West of the town centre. And the sledding is well north. The other two - glasses and hide-and-seek (NIGHTMARE ! Bord ISN'T in the same place for everyone !) you have to go through the portal in the big big building- (go speak to the Magi dragon - at stomach level, not his head - and he'll do it for you.

|Posted by: Asketil Dec 25 2016, 06:24 PM|
I've noticed only some furniture rotates.
Also if you remove anything at all, you need to hard refresh after each item or it will magically reappear...At least that is how it is for me.
|Posted by: evangeline5432 Dec 25 2016, 06:25 PM|

Can anyone tell me how many "quests" need to be accomplished on day 1? I've done the package, sledding, cats and H&S. Wil the game let me know?
|Posted by: EscapistLore Dec 25 2016, 06:43 PM|
You are missing one more. White text.
The maze is in the southern part of the tropical town
|Posted by: Asketil Dec 25 2016, 06:43 PM|
You need to find the glasses in the maze still, and no, at the moment there is no notification when completed.
|Posted by: cbussiere Dec 25 2016, 06:43 PM|
There are five quests at the moment. Look back in the thread for more information on them.

No. It just goes to colored load bar whether I hit it or not.
|Posted by: Silverphoenixx Dec 25 2016, 06:53 PM|
| Not sure where I should point this out, but one of the people in the tropical place (can't remember how to spell its name right now) pub named Yvete says "This is a nice place to relax after a long day's" which I'm pretty sure is incorrect.
Oh yeah and next to the top leftmost house, there's this one tree standing alone slightly above another one that looks the same. If you stand to the right of this tree, this weird patch of snow either partially or completely covers your character, depending on how far up or down you stand. Another similar patch is just a few steps down and to the right.
|Posted by: Aie Dec 25 2016, 06:56 PM|
| Love the mini game! However, after the loading screen I need to move my character before the surroundings appear, which means I've accidentally backed to the previous area more than once... Decorating my house was getting on my nerves because it froze pretty often until started to hard refresh every time after removing an item.
I think it's great that the game is different for everyone, although I am pretty envious of some people's items... Would love to have better windows. Well, more to look forward to, I guess!
I like the hatchling's colours too.

Don't worry if you don't have them yet, it's looking like everyone gets different random items each day but presumably we'll all have everything by the end ^^
Also some people may insist my dragons are mere plushies. HOGWASH! They are as real as my kitties! As they say:

The new eggs and hatchlings look great! I can't wait to see what the adults look like. ouo
Aegis eggs were harder to catch than I expected (enraged moreso than pacified) but I'm happy I got a start on most of the lineage pairings I like. :3 Definitely won't be caught off-guard next year and plan for trades/swaps prior to holiday breeding season!

If you put the white square over them and press enter, it should give you options to move or remove them.
(Also lol. xP Bet that looks great.)
|Posted by: Lagie Dec 25 2016, 07:46 PM|
I put my mis-placed items back in my inventory.
After you click the pencil, move the white square onto the item.
Then either space or enter (I can't remember which) will give you a choice box, one of which is 'return to inventory'.
Then you can restart...

I can't figure out what the dark brown parts are. Is it the roof? Are they the outdoor porches? Are they the walls?
And is that bed the one that came with the house? How did you move it?
|Posted by: cbussiere Dec 25 2016, 08:17 PM|
Do you mean the logs? Those are walls. And you can move the default bed and dresser just like any other item, and if you return them to your inventory you can even place as many as you want like the other items.
|Posted by: whitestar Dec 25 2016, 08:20 PM|

If I'm understanding this right--there may be two quests I've missed! ...I thought I talked to everyone talkable (my game has been essentially glitch-free so far, besides the one need to refresh while decorating), but maybe I need to go look again?

I was running around to the west and south so I headed back to go due north. When I got to where the new section would reload I got an ERROR with a RIP tombstone. Makes me think that the dog park wasn't to have been released as yet. Will check again in a few.
was able to go back and found the dogs and patch. The faded icons also appeared on the top of that part of the map.
When I got home the faded icons were in my house with a green check mark by the book and the paw print not any of the others that I already did today. Guess I'll go back to do the sled and see if I get a green check mark.
|Posted by: Asketil Dec 25 2016, 09:54 PM|

Updates made to the game are as follows:
- various bugs have been addressed, from small to large
- New progress markers for various mini-games (story, letter delivery, sledding, Bord-and-seek, cat collecting, new finding Patch, and mazes)
- Yeah, a new mini-game has been added, Finding Patch. The mini-game is located in northern Alhira in the dog park, and the NPC to talk with is Jade.

This one doesn't work for me The view is just one huge glitch, and I can only see my character and the dogs on the bottom of the screen. I get a similar glitch view after every load screen, but usually it becomes normal once I move my character. (Luckily, I managed to find Patch by randomly using the arrow keys and repeatedly pressing the space bar like crazy. )

I don't know but while re-doing my quests when I got back to my house the book had a green check mark. I didn't see any orange folks at the beach though

On another note...anyone know who Gladys is?
|Posted by: Hermeline Dec 25 2016, 10:33 PM|
| Hm, that's weird. I fulfilled the 5 quests this morning and got a reward each time. I decorated my house and went offline.
Now I just felt like visiting the game again and look around although there was nothing new to do... But now there are these little icons indicating which quests you did and only the book icon is marked.
It looks as if I had to do all of the quests again. It though "well okay, that's sad but I'll do it.."
After repeating the cat quest, however, I realized that I got new rewards in addition to the old ones, which are still there. That's not supposed to happen, is it?
Now I'm not sure what to do ^^" Do the quests again, so the game knows I did them, or leave them, because I would be taking advantage of a bug..?

|Posted by: andromedae Dec 25 2016, 10:49 PM|
|I have been inside every house (that allows entry) and talked to every NPC that responds in Nulhora but no one is named Gladys???|
|Posted by: Pinch of StarDust Dec 25 2016, 10:51 PM|
| Some one posted screen shots of where Borg could be found. I have to find him again and he isn't behind the orange tree where I found him last time.
I need some help please so I can find Borg again.
|Posted by: Slaskia Dec 25 2016, 10:55 PM|
| I also need to deliver a package to Gladys.
I'm also getting a bunch with the cat quest: whenever I catch a cat, the screen goes black and stays black.
|Posted by: cbussiere Dec 25 2016, 10:55 PM|
He'll be in the same section of the map he started in, you don't have to go wandering all over the land. So just keep looking in that one area, and look for his wings or tail sticking out. He's been behind pillars and roofs in addition to trees.

|I found Bord around the beach where the two other dragons are. He's next to some sort of building.|

|I redid all quest except deliver one. I just found day one's quest was six, not five.|
|Posted by: Grandmother_cathie Dec 25 2016, 10:59 PM|
I just spent 20+ minutes looking for orange people. grrrrrr
By up-o-date on the story, do you mean that the game recognizes that you played last year or something different?
And then I did a hard refresh and all the other checks are gone and now I'm being told to look for Gladyos too.
I appreciate that a lot of time and energy HAD to have gone into this, but this is insane.
|Posted by: LaHaine Dec 25 2016, 11:01 PM|
The only orange people I ran into was the guys outside the teleporter house in Alhira
Did anyone find Gladys?
|Posted by: Pinch of StarDust Dec 25 2016, 11:02 PM|

Now all I have to do is find his hiding place this time.

Edit: Did it!
|Posted by: birdzgoboom Dec 25 2016, 11:05 PM|
You don't have to re-do them if you don't want to. If you already did them once, then you don't need to. It's just you can right now if you want to.
No, the game this year has story quests that will be added periodically as well. Today's story 'quest' was simple, it was literally just talking to Perl in the beginning of the game, and that got you your check mark on your book icon.
|Posted by: LaHaine Dec 25 2016, 11:05 PM|
New quest, talk to Jade in the dog park
|Posted by: lanette Dec 25 2016, 11:05 PM|
EXACTLY! I have been all over, but yup, it says Gladys:
No Gladys. I even went to Perl's place wondering if she suddenly decided to change names!!
|Posted by: LaHaine Dec 25 2016, 11:10 PM|
|Since Hand asked us to come back tomorrow to help him, my theory is that Gladys is supposed to be the new delivery quest, so it might not be active yet? :/ I ran around both towns and didn't find him. I just didn't visit the pub and the inn because my game crashed on that map.|

The game does seem a lot more stable now. At least, I can now run in Alhira without slowing down to a crawl. Not being teleported into the trees on map switch is a plus too
And heeey Will-on-a-bench's invisibility spell wore off!
Wasn't Gladys the person from last year's story that lives on a farm? (regardless, both farm houses are inaccessible so I dunno :/)

Ok. I'm done with the game now. Honestly. I can't repeat the quests an endless amount of times, I have other things to do. It's frustrating since I would like to advance in the game without having to restart at random, over and over again.

Then I go to do the sixth quest. Get it done. THEN the check-marks for all the OTHER quests disappear as if I hadn't already done them TWICE. All I wanted to do was finish things so I could progress onto Day 2 when it began, but instead I'm stuck in an infinite loop. I hope that this will be fixed too?|

You can do the minigame quests every day.
It hit midnight DC time, therefore they reset and you are able to do them again.
The reason that happened is because it hit midnight DC time, so quests were reset for the day so you can do them again and get more furniture.
As far as triggering the Day 2 quest, going into your house and then exiting should make Day 2 start. :) It'll be like that for story quests.
eta: Day 1/day 2/etc are technically 'complete' once you do the Story Quest that's available, if there is a story quest available. The minigames are their own separate thing, that you can do once a day, and they should reset at midnight, cave time, every day.

| Thank you for explaining the weirdness about the quests resetting. Maybe now I have a chance to get the cat plushies YEEEE
Also my "dark blue" wardrobe and chair are... WHITE. Not dark blue. Is there a glitch there? O.e
What helps me with the decorating the house is (albeit it's time consuming but no glitches and things stay!) just click on the pencil icon to edit. Click on the dresser icon to access my stash, then choose ONE item. Place that where I want it. Click the pencil icon to get out of edit mode. Make my character walk around a bit. Then click on pencil icon to edit again and repeat the process. As long as I limit each one to just ONE item, and get out of the edit mode after every single one, then my items stay and there's no freezing.
Hope this helps others too! <3

Yeah, I was wondering the same thing, but turns out, Dark Blue is just the set name.
There's also art Noveau, Light Blue, Carrot, etc.
It's called dark blue because the chairs and beds of the set ,I believe, have dark blue cushions/ bed sheets.

|Ah... okay, so even though I hadn't completed the side games, the main story quest was done so everything was "complete." Good to know. I wish there was something that signaled that, because I thought that all of the check-marks vanishing (especially the one on the book, which I guess signifies the story quest) meant I'd lost all of the ground I'd gained. But it looks like it also means that every day we have to herd cats again? (And, apparently, in my quest to complete the tasks I thought had been deleted from my history, I did everything and will have to wait another 23 hours to have more to do?)|

| Woo, tons of intriguing glitches today while decorating the house (and this doesn't involve Gladys, that invisible *insert word of choice here*).
Like placing a cat tree will suddenly cause the cat bed to vanish. Moving it will cause your windows to rearrange and your small blue table to suddenly be on the wall. Trying to return it to inventory will make your beds do intriguing and possibly censorable things with one another. And no matter how many times one walks in and out of the house to try to reset and/or save alterations once stuff's been (hopefully) fixed, it all resets. Yup, I have a table. On my wall. Forever, apparently.
Game gets wackier as time goes on. But I'm not going to complain (much), because the carrot rug's no longer holding me hostage in my house.
Edit: Oh, and now the cat bed will never stay put - leaving the house causes it to vanish. Bah! It's my favorite thing so far!
|Posted by: Pokemonfan13 Dec 26 2016, 01:16 AM|
| I have two game related questions.
1. My friend was told to give a package to "Gladys", not Bill or Perl. She's on a slow phone and so can't run around talking to everyone easily, and I can't find a Gladys. Help?
2. I get stuck when I try to put away the original bedside table and then bring out a new item. The game just freezes when I go into the list of stuff after I put away the table. And I really want that table gone...

| On Day 1 when the faded Icons appeared I went back to all the quests and got all the Icons green check marks including the book.
Day 2 Perl was outside my door and I finished the quest she sent me on. I went back to my house and all my faded Icons had no green check marks any more. I did all the quests again and all but the book now have green check marks. I also go a lot more things for my house....but....my book lacks its green check mark.
This is very frustrating! What happened to green check mark for my book??? Does any one know if all the Icons need green check marks or not?
|Posted by: aussieJJDude Dec 26 2016, 01:22 AM|
For me, my green check marks sometimes disappear but then come back when I "enter a new area"...
The struggle is real trying to decorate.... I spend longer decorating than I do doing the minigames due to the amount of times I have to re-do everything as it seems to play musical chairs.... Obviously the misfit draggies are doing it?

| Whew! Cleared my browser cache/cookies and got the icons and other quests. Delivered firewood, redid all the quests, talked to the Thalassians, etc. I still can't get the package for Gladys, though, as Hand just says thank you again. Maybe I won't get that package ever oh well, if Gladys doesn't want to show up anyway, I don't care for her package.
Glitches and all, these games are really so cute and fun! A huge thanks to everyone involved.

| Is the firewood to Jade the first day or second day? I saw some post that said that's the second day and it got me confused.
And the Gladys guy.. then is this person's quest the second day or third day??
Shouldn't people still be on the second day at this moment?
|Posted by: birdzgoboom Dec 26 2016, 02:19 AM|
The quest with Jade is the newest story quest, yes.
Galys is part of just a sidequest that restarts every day and has no impact on the story quest (the delivery quest). Her NPC is currently bugged out and will be fixed.

Is there eventually a glitch and I can´t find Patch?

and ohh, repeatable quests, this is going to be fun

|Posted by: Yumi1 Dec 26 2016, 02:56 AM|
| Alright, I'm INCREDIBLY aggravated and confused. I didn't see any icons when I played yesterday and thought that there would be SOME KIND OF PROMPT if there were anything beyond delivering something to someone. There wasn't so I explored a smidgen and stopped, thinking I was done. Last year, other areas opened up as the days progressed.
It wasn't easy to explore anything, still isn't, because everything is very finicky for me for some reason. No matter which key set I use, arrow keys or WASD, it's like my keys are sticking or something, but I don't know if it's my keyboard. I'll transition into a new area and my character will start walking or running and be running into something when I look back. Other times, everything's randomly unresponsive and I'm jabbing at my keys to move a little bit and talk to someone.
Beyond that, I feel like I'm missing A LOT. I have no idea what people are talking about on here with dogs and dragons playing hide-and-seek, I can't even figure out where I'm taking some firewood. "Here, take this to this place!" doesn't tell me where that place is! A direction from the main area would be super helpful, I'm not going to remember anything from a year ago but it's like this is assuming that I do. What are new players suppose to do? I was thinking that a warmer area was South, but It won't let me go that way. I just did another lap around the map that I have access to and South won't let me go, while North East had a knitting dragon that won't let me pass. I can't go anywhere else and I don't see any green-haired characters. The key sticking thing also makes decorating difficult because I press an arrow key and nothing, nothing, one slot, one slot, ZOOOOOOOOOOM, ZOOOOOOOOM OTHER DIRECTION, one slot, one slot, etc. Am I glitched? Am I missing something? I feel incredibly stupid for missing EVERYTHING from day 1. Today I gathered cats, delivered another package to the Pearl chick, and discovered that I'm trapped and confused.
..........................Alright. Never mind. Just found the teleporter. NOTHING told me that there was a teleporter. I tried to talk to that dragon yesterday and didn't get a response so I assumed that it was something that would open up later. The dragon in the main area doesn't talk to me. There wasn't a teleporter last year. I'm out. It looks nice but I'm sick and I do not want to run around on wild goose chases, bashing on my laptop keys and trying to figure out what does what and where what is. I just found a green-haired character. I have no idea why the game assumes that I know who and where a green-haired character would be when the map was not like this last year.

| I had a bit of trouble with the cats again at first since the one seemed to insist on being in with the reindeer ... but then later when I came back and tried doing it again they were fine... so if you find them out of bounds just leave the area and return see if it resets.
My problem is when I remove anything from my house sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't and sometimes when I come back half the stuff I put in is gone.
|Posted by: Process Dec 26 2016, 03:06 AM|
| UPDATE LOG:
The updates made to the game are as follows:
- various bug fixes (cat/dog-related, furniture, etc)
- Galys is now accessible for the delivery quest (her house is in the north of Nulhora, on the left side)
- small beds and lamps are better positioned
Please keep in mind: New content will be added periodically, but side-quests/games (so everything but the Story quest) will reset every day and be available to play again every day so you can obtain more furniture.
|Posted by: whitestar Dec 26 2016, 03:09 AM|
|I can't arrange anything in my house, and when I remove the original items that were in the house at the start, they keep reappearing. Also the check marks keep disappearing over the game icons.

There are icons today. ^^
Take a look at the signs hanging outside some of the buildings (up above the doors somewhere). The teleporter building has the teleporter symbol (on the actual teleporter) on its sign. ^^
Make sure you're standing close enough and facing the dragon. I've done that with a few people and missed getting a response. =p

What's the book icon ?
|Posted by: Samona Dec 26 2016, 03:17 AM|
| Hand says I'm still delivering the package to Gladys.
Reloading a few times fixed the issue but only reloading on another screen from North Nulhora.
|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Dec 26 2016, 03:18 AM|
Maze is in the other town, down, down by the grassy islands. Teleporter is a fairly big building with a little fancy do-dad symbol sign hanging around the door. It's somewhere right above your house in the starting town and around the center of town near the fancy gem statue in the other town, the building with the two waterfalls.
|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Dec 26 2016, 03:19 AM|
Did you try delivering again? Or just talk to Hand again?
|Posted by: Samona Dec 26 2016, 03:22 AM|
I resolved it by reloading a few times in a different screen from North Nulhora. That seems to fix the bug with Gladys.

| This may be the first DC event I don't complete. Not because it's bad or glitch, but because I can't bring myself to care.
Why was this done after Christmas and not before. I spent the entire month waiting for the event to be announced as it's part of my pre-holiday tradition now. But now? Christmas is over, go home. Bah humbug.
Also, as much as I enjoyed the RPG thing last year. This year is just too big and tedious. I don't want to do multiple quests every single day and spend hours walking all over just trying to find them. Not everyone has that kind of time. No maps, no directions as to where people or places might be....This is not fun.

I tried to 'reset' as I'd never finished doing day one, but it looks like I'm getting day two content anyway. Are you sure? Is the conversation with Perl about warm weather supposed to happen on day one? I don't remember it from before.

Oh no... so I don't get to do day one then? Darn... I'd better not miss any more days... honestly, that's not a change I like at all. Makes it feel more like a task I have to hurry to complete before I miss the chance. Last year you could be more leisurely about it.

Talking to Perl as in the very first bit where she wakes you up? That was literally all?
|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Dec 26 2016, 03:54 AM|
You don't have to do any quests. You can do as many as you want, with previous requests resetting each day (so far at least), to get more items.
|Posted by: Process Dec 26 2016, 03:55 AM|
somethings can start out slow then ramp up
|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Dec 26 2016, 03:56 AM|
Because it's a nice way to start the new year.
Also, if you've taken a look around at all the new and amazing art, I'm sure this took a while to 1) get art done, 2) get the text and quest ideas figured out, 3) get the game actually set up, and 4) do some testing. Please remember that the people who contribute to this site are much like you: human with non-DC lives to take care of. ;3

|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Dec 26 2016, 03:59 AM|
Look at the top of your screen on the left. There's icons for each task available to complete. The story quest doesn't give items but the mini-games do. The book icon is the story quest, the rest are mini-games. Games from previous days reset (so far) so that you can complete them again if you want to get more items. And a new game was released today (hint: it's the paw print, so maybe it has to do with dogs... ;3 )
|Posted by: DragonLady86 Dec 26 2016, 04:01 AM|
I do understand that Sock. It's not that I mind. I certainly didn't when it was announced it would be after. It's just that I can't seem to get myself into the spirit of the game now that its here. A personal failure, not an attack on the hard workers who do all this work for us with no compensation except our thanks. My apologizes to all if my statement came across otherwise.

|How the heck does one catch any cats? Nothing I do is working. My house is so glitchy that I keep getting multiple pieces of furniture.|
|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Dec 26 2016, 04:10 AM|
No problem. I can totally understand that. <3
Catch cats in the mini-game or decorate your house with cat items?
Catch cats in the game: approach them and press space or enter. You have to be close enough to them and should be facing them for it to work.
Decorate your house with cat items: items are randomly given, so you'll have to wait to receive some cat items before you can use them to decorate with.
If you place the white square while in furniture editing mode over the item and press enter or space, you should have an option to remove those glitchy extra items. :3
|Posted by: RagaDal Dec 26 2016, 04:12 AM|
Catch cats in the game. Nothing is working. The only decorative items I have right now are Toy Blusangs, but I don't know how many because the decoration thing is glitching like crazy. I keep getting multiples of the same item. I've been trying to catch the cats for Ronin, but nothing works. Thanks. I was doing the right thing, just isn't working.

They should be just right around the area after you exit the teleporter building.
Someone earlier said they needed to reload a few times while away from the post office and Gladys to get the fix to appear and be able to deliver to Gladys. Maybe also try resetting your position with the link? Might work.
Yes, so that you can get more items to decorate your house with. I'm guessing there are quite a few possible to collect, considering the range of stuff I've gotten so far.

I clicked space and the frame vanished and didn't come back, no message and I am stuck with the dogs now in that place.I sure don't want to use the stuck-click, cus it warns that it will set back all you did that day and I already repeated almost all of yesterday.
so is there anything else I can do with the dogs atm?

I don't think you have to. Jade gave me my stuff.
|Posted by: Tindra Dec 26 2016, 06:51 AM|
| I love Valkemarian Tales, but here's a few things:
1. In Alhira, the area where you arrive works just fine, but when you change screen the FPS drops to like 2 or 3, making it nearly impossible to do anything. (This also happens in places where it doesn't snow).
2. In house decorating, there's some issues with items.
-Cannot place things near the wall, even though in normal situations they could be.
-I can only place the Wreath on the floor. Now, I'm not an expert, but I'm pretty sure you usually hang wreaths on the wall or door.
I don't think I have anything else right now. Keep up the good work.
Some of the items disappeared from their places after I went out from my house.

| I have a question for the game-makers. I have a friend who has been trying to play on her phone - and - well, NO. So she is going to catch up when she gets back to her PC.
You can repeat things to get more stuff, on the next day. What about people who are trying to play the whole game on - say - the last three days - can they just go in again and repeat several times on one day, or do they just end up with less stuff to choose from ?

| This is rather nice game.. altough it's too slow to move around the map even when you run The mini-games and "story-games" are rather simple. At least now when you know where to go and what to do.. (however, it is only the 2nd day.. ) Yesterday when I played with my phone it took much more time as it froze few times. Also you don't see the "bending" tasks as you do see them on computer. Other than that it worked fine with phone.
Bord has been hiding in the same place for 2 times. Rather easy to find him. Hopefully tomorrow he'll find some other place to hide so it'll get little more difficult.
Thank you for everyone who has worked hard to bring us this nice event! (As much as I like this game I also would have rather had it before christmas. It does take time to do all the games just to keep up with the "story" (although I did complete everything faster today than yesterday as I knew where to go). And as someone said dragcave holiday event has also been my pre-christmas thing, to get me in the holiday spirit)

I guess that they aren't supposed to be in the colour their name is showing, the colour name is rather some kind of collection name for you to know which pieces of furniture are supposed to fit together. Furthermore, you can click on some of the items again and use "toggle". Some of the tables get a blanket if you do so. (The dark blue items get a dark blue blanket for example.)

I haven't had to deliver to her, but she's near where you get the firewood (in a house).
Instructions (highlight to view): From Nulhora main, go east into the next area, then north into the next area, much like you would to get to the sledding quest. Go to where you would normally accept the sledding quest (but don't take the quest, obviously). Head down from there, keeping to the right, staying in the area you're currently in. You'll come across a T-shaped house with fencing. Gladys is in that house.

Woo, 15 seconds exactly!
Someone was saying yesterday that they didn't hit anything and still weren't getting under 18 seconds; the ice makes you go faster, so you want to hit that.

| When I came back to the game this morning all but my book icon were checked so I went off to re-do the quests to get more things and try to find the orange folks on the beach that others reported talking with...I haven't seen any such folks since I began the game.
All of the quests with a green check mark wouldn't let me re-do for more items. Even doing the sledding quest and beating the time didn't get me any more things.
I went to the dog park and found Jade, as I did when I played at 1230a EST this morning only this time Patch was standing next to him and there was no dog park. I went back headed for the teleport and there was Jade standing near the crystal fountain thingy. He thanked me for the firewood...that was a first! I went back to the dog park and there was Jade with Patch, where I had just left him I decided to go to the teleport and looked for Jade on the way but he was no where to be found.
For the 2nd time my book now has a green check mark.
I went to my house to decorate and after I got it the way I wanted it save for a window lying on the floor that would allow me to place it any where else and wouldn't let me move or return it to inventory because there was no way to get the white outline square on any of the corners I gave up and left.
When I came back into my house all my new refurbishing was gone including the window on the floor
What I've figured out is that when you get all the icons checked there is nothing to do unless one were to do a total refresh and I don't feel like doing that. Too much running around too many times yesterday.
|Posted by: LaHaine Dec 26 2016, 10:39 AM|
There's the story quest - Enter your house and exit again to make Perl talk to you. She will send you on a mission to get firewood and deliver it to Alhira

| Word to those with issues concerning furniture glitching or Gladys not accepting her darned package:
Refresh your browser while you're in your house (for the furniture reappearing/rearranging/whatevering).
Refresh your browser while in Gladys' house (for her refusal to acknowledge you pushing a package in her face).
It solved both problems for me. Now I don't leave my house after fiddlin' with furniture without hard refreshing the browser first. Gotta love command-R.

| So I did all the quests of daz one, got proper check marks, went off.... and now that I came back, Perl told me about the weather and stuff, but the icons show me the quests of the first day again. All unchecked now. It's snowing in Aliha, Jade is in two differet spots and I can only redo the quests I already did. But I won't get a new check mark on the book... And don't seem to be able to actually start the firewood quest anywhere.
Any advice at what I shall do? I'm also afraid now that if I go offline, everything will be gone again. Did I miss something about how to save progress or is this a glitch or something (with having to redo quests and such)
|Posted by: Isuzu Dec 26 2016, 12:02 PM|
X-Mas dragons switch every 2 years (eg. Winter Magi and Wrapping Wing were male, Mistletoe and Solstice were female, Aegis was male), it's V-Day dragons that alternate every year.
|Posted by: Asketil Dec 26 2016, 12:05 PM|
I could have sworn I remembered at Valentine's day last year TJ said they alternate after each holiday get the same gender. Or I am hallucinating, I did see the Christmas pattern a page back after I asked so it makes sense it is every two years.

There's a guide for this event https://forums.dragcave.net/index.php?showtopic=177164&st=500entry9372693. It comes with maps.
Trying to answer some questions:
I had to redo all my quests because the checkmarks were gone, what happened?
The checkmarks reset daily, so you can repeat the quests to get new furniture for the house. You don't need to do them if you don't want to. Your old rewards don't go away.
The book means story quest, the checkmark is there to say if you have completed the daily story quest or not. Today, the story quest is the firewood one.
How do I activate the firewood quest?
Enter your house and exit again, Perl should talk to you.
Where is Gladys?
In her house, north of Nulhora, below the sledding race place.
Why can't I give the parcel to Gladys?
Glitch. Try to refresh while in her house, according to:

You can do it if you want to in order to get more items. The quests are reset every day, but doing them is not necessary to advance in the story. As for the quest that is made for the second day, you have to deliver firewood to Jade in Alhira.

The paw one has to do with a new quest that was added yesterday. It's called finding Patch. You go to Alhira to the dog park and talk to Jade (green-haired fellow), he'll ask you to find his dog and you'll get some items as a reward. For the book icon, you have to deliver firewood that Hilde gives you (she's in the North of Nulhora), and give it to Jade in Alhira. There's two Jade sprites in Alhira though, the one you want to give the firewood to is near the crystal fountain/ornament thing.

The book is the story quest. To activate it, walk inside and then outside of your house again. The story quest is delivering firewood to the other town. The paw print is a new minigame you can receive decorative items for. Hint: It's a paw-print. We already had a cat quest, but we did see another animal with paw prints. Maybe check out that area of the game again to find that new game. ;3
As for your edit, (did you talk to them?) I guess we'll have to wait and see how that plays out with the story. Otherwise, they could just be introducing us to more DC lore with the thalassians (sp?).

Someone else said they had to go to the other town and refresh a few times before Gladys would accept their package.
|Posted by: prismatika Dec 26 2016, 02:36 PM|
|I finally figured out where to get the firewood, but the whole thing freezes as soon as I receive it. I've restarted a few times now and it keeps doing it. I'm not a fan of this sort of game and I was rather disappointed to find we had another event like this, something my current issue isn't helping. I know how much work went into the event and I greatly appreciate all the time and effort that went into creating it, but I desperately hope we have something different next year.|

My problem is GLADYS not giving the quest dialogue. The furniture stays put.
I followed the instruction to refresh inside her house and I still get the same greeting.
I refreshed inside her house and the dialogue was still a non-quest greeting.

And in response, Sockpuppet, yep, spoke to them. They're Zora that have been in a spray-tan booth too long? Certainly interesting to see a bit more lore, though, especially that there's not just humans and dragons as the resident sentient species.

|Posted by: missy20201 Dec 26 2016, 03:46 PM|
| ... Alright I understand that the game has issues and can be confusing till you get your bearings but I can't be the only one frustrated at the amount of people having to repeat the same answers to the same questions, especially when the answers are repeatedly said in the page or two before the poster. Even if you don't want to read back, if you google 'dragcave christmas event' or something more specific you'll probably find what you're looking for. Don't get fed up and yell 'I hate this game for not saving my progress so I had to redo everything!!' without a cursory glance, because then you'd see that's an intended feature, etc.
Sorry for mini-rant. It just bothers me how rude some people are being. The coders worked really hard for this! It's meant to be a fun thing everyone can enjoy, and if you hate it then you don't have to play it.
That being said, I wonder if Gladys will be a little tamer tomorrow, since I ended up giving Bill a second package today? May have to try some of y'all's tips and tricks if she refuses to accept my package

|Posted by: Lagie Dec 26 2016, 04:50 PM|
| Thank you for the check mark icons! those are a great help!
I've also realized we do expect a lot from our game organizers, as we fuss (guilty as charged) about not getting some item or the other. Seriously, though. In real life, if someone asked you to take mail to the post office, would you really be getting three items of furniture in return? No, you wouldn't, and even if the person who asked you gave you a little something, would you really say to them, "Oh, I wanted something else."? So, I'm going to collect what I can while I can (the internet here keeps poofing for HOURS at a time), and then leisurely arrange things when I have many more items to work with.
Thank you to all those who made this event possible!
Happy Boxing Day, everyone!

| Done for today, completed all quests without any spoilers, no glitches, either. The added quest marks are nice, although I first misread the first one as a book (instead of logs of firewood). My sledding gets better and better, down to 13 seconds in my third attempt (I have no idea how to speed this up, "running" doesn't work, and yes, I'm using the icy patches as accelerators). Oh well, never mind, as long as I beat Abe.
Finally got my cat bed (yay!) and some much nicer rugs than yesterday (I really like the Renaissance one). Fun fun fun.
@creators: People, I can't thank you enough, absolutely brilliant!
|Posted by: ViperaUnion Dec 26 2016, 05:40 PM|
| Somehow the glitch where it didn't show an updated house has fixed itself in my game the next time I loaded it.
I filled every wall that permitted it with windows, because that is a must in my dream home.
So, anyway, am I the only one who kind of wonders if at the end of the game, if there's going to be some sort of snap-shot of our fully-decorated house when we finish? That's actually the main reason I'm playing it, under the circumstances that there's going to be something like a badge or lingering thing on my scroll.
...Well, that, and I figured out that if my game freezes, if I reload the page by right-clicking with my mouse button, it fixed the bug and just set my character outside the inn. The freezing only happened once, though. I'm actually kind of enjoying the game now, because there's something really nostalgic about it.
...that, and I love stories. The weather's going weird, and that might have been initially thought of as a glitch, but now it seems that was intentional. There's also that mean guy with the black dragon that scoffs at you and walks off on the first day.
|Posted by: fuzzbucket Dec 26 2016, 06:06 PM|

|Posted by: meirelle Dec 26 2016, 06:22 PM|
The game was updated, and I have the icons at the top of the screen, and I was able to do yesterday's quests again and the new one where you have to find the dog, but I still can't talk to Perl.
I got it! All I had to do was reset to my house and then leave the house for her to show up!
|Posted by: Jennie Dec 26 2016, 06:37 PM|
First I tried figuring it all out on my own. Then I came to the forum and tried reading all the posts about the event, but I couldn't find the info I needed. Then I went back to the game and tried on my own again. Then I came back here. Then I went to the Dragon Cave wiki, and I googled about the Dragon cave christmas event, and so on and so on. Finally I posted a tiny little question about how to find something. No one answered that first question, so I went back to trying to figure it out on my own. I nearly gave up, but finally was successful. And so the second time I had a problem, I looked for the answers here, got tired of scrolling through page after page, and just asked a question. This time I got the info I needed.
I wasn't trying to be a nuisance, and I'm sorry that I'm not one of those people who can just figure out these games all on their own. I love the game, but I'm tired of scrolling through thousands of answers about how to play it without finding what I'm looking for. There comes a time when it doesn't seem worth it to play when it takes so much time and there is so little reward.

The only question I have left is, does anyone else have trouble with certain pieces of furniture when customizing their house? The Nulhora chair I can't place at all without the game freezing, the blue table I was only able to place one and asking to place anymore causes it to freeze; things like that. Each item seems to be different.
Anyone else having troubles or limits on the number of item types in the house?

|Posted by: Jennie Dec 26 2016, 07:21 PM|
I agree. Despite my frustration at my own cluelessness, I love the game. I appreciate all the work that TJ and the spriters put into it. I also appreciate the help from the people on this forum. I do wish I could figure out more on my own, but as I get more practice I am doing better. I found Bord without checking out the maps of his hiding places, and I won the sled race all on my own, too. I rounded up the cats even faster the second time. So, I think I'm doing okay, if not great.
Thanks again to the people who designed and worked on this event. :-)

Each day has 6 repeatable quests- they can be considered "side quests" as the quest that matters is the main storyline, marked by a book icon in the top left of your screen. The repeatable quests do NOT need to be completed- they can be completed each day to give you new items to decorate your house with (quest rewards).

OK so far I had no major problems but just to clarify
a - was the dog quest functional on day 1? (I didn't see anyone who had that yesterday)
b - what was the 'story' quest yesterday?
Not all that important I can't change anything anyway but I'm curious
|Posted by: bluesonic1 Dec 26 2016, 07:59 PM|
A- Technically yes, it was added right near the end of day 1, though Birdz (or maybe Process) is quoted as having said it was "new" so some consider it Day 2 content.
B- Just talking to Perl at the start of the game was the storyline quest (confirmed by Birdz or Process)

Are you sure you haven't done day 2 already? Did you get asked to deliver firewood - maybe you missed the day 1 quest (not sure if you do old quests or just the new day's quest)? Day 1 is the day where they prompted you to go to the post office IIRC, day 2 they ask you to deliver firewood.
Did you re-enter and exit your house?

Lost dog is when you go talk to the green-haired person (Jade?) in the dog park, a teeny bit west of the gaggle of dogs playing around in the park.
Firewood should be prompted when you enter, then exit your house again. If that's not working for you, then try the usual troubleshooting (try entering and exiting your house after each of these you try or try them all and then enter and exit your house): reset your location with the text button with the game, refresh, hard refresh/clearing cache, clear DC cookies, or a different browser.

In the fansites section with all other fansite threads.
The new dragons seem rather horse-inspired to me, so drakes are interesting speculation. The egg size could be irrelevant and Fini has had a lot of drakes here, but I would doubt it just because of the eggs. xP

Kind of holidayXnon-holiday checker-forcing/favoring that would be... and it's not true so far with all of these being nicely of one breeding group! (holidayXholiday of the same type both may pass as an almost PB, still checkerish() but at least minimally related as in opposite to a holidayXnon-holiday or holidayCxholidayV), and completely unrelated checkers are possible any way...
Also, aren't draks too dumb to be a Christmas or Valentine breed? For Halloween, sure, a wild animal beast attacking everything on sight or sth like that, but the 2 other holidays? Just imagine, would sth this un-intelligent be even able to get any idea of any of those 2 holidays it woudl be supposed to eb a spirit of? I don't think so really... And it's one of the reasons why I definitely don't want a drak non-halloween holiday dragon in particular... and I'd feel REALLY weird seing a 2-headed Valentine... nope... To me it's like seing a skeletal zombie dragon being a Val or Chris spirit too grotesque!
The egg here wasn't of a drak, so this should be a regular dragon, a western judging from the S2. the drak egg size is already established for new releases. And I'd rather not accuse TJ or any artist to trick people like this in such case... that would be cruel... some people probably already have some particular lineage plans for this white-gold guy and it's with the true dragons because the egg indicated a true dragon.
PS. I'm saying 'Christmas' because 'holiday' is as broad as to cover all 3 holidays we have releases for^^; and I dont' know how to properly differentate that I mean this holiday and this is how it was called for almost all this time...^^; Maybe this could be called Jolly or Jollies after the Jolly Follies we had here last year(?)? it's still to be about cheer after all

I'm sorry you had trouble with the game. I wasn't calling anybody out in particular. But I feel it's worth mentioning that, if you checked the wiki and the forum and couldn't find the answer, then... this wasn't about you? It was about the people asking the same thing five other people did within the past three pages etc.
As for those having trouble getting the day to turn, I had the same problem! I had to clear cache and cookies for it to move onto the next day :/

| Just sent my third batch of new Holidays to the AP. This is the first year I've been confident enough in my catching skills to toss mine for other people, and it feels good to do that.
Managed to grab one more Aegis today, and now I'm totally satisfied with my Holiday haul.

Wondering how long those will be staying in the AP till sb still able to have any finally shows up to take them hehe Very-latecommers only?
It's sooo easy to grab those with just 2 CBs limit... really, I like it easy for grabbing the releases but this is just impossibly easy I caught mine within a few hours after the start (normally the greatest hype and lags and stuff) and it was easy-peasy and I was on my slow phone and not even trying to be fast...
I think I'll drop 1 of mine too, 7h to hatch but anyway, I still need just 1 since I can't have 5CBs to make a gay family (I's like the catchdate to be the 25th)
I wish the community would flood the AP and make it stuck for a few hours with those ungrabbable eggs:P that would be a sth!

| Why can't I do this blasted game. I have yet to do the post office thing and deliver to Gladys
I caught 5 cats but the 6th one is escaping time and time again
I managed to do the sled race in 17 in seconds
Nothing else. Sighs. I can't manage to do these things. I liked the snow fort event and trimming the Christmas tree. I could do those and enjoyed it, especially the snow fort. Next year could we have an event geared for those who like me have problems doing these follow the directions and do quest events. Not everyone is enamored of games like this one or the Minecraft thing which was also an exercise in frustration for me. I look forward for months to these events and get so frustrated when I can't do them. Not everyone is good at video games of any sort. Please!
To me this is a week of frustration. I can't even manage to follow the cheat sheets. Sighs.
People in charge and artists - I love the eggs. They are beautiful. I know the event took a lot of time and planning but between my very bad luck with games like this and the glitches and time lag. Argh.
Thank you for trying to give all of us a wonderful week. I know many people are joyful and happy with the game and everyone seems to like the eggs. So my thanks for your work. I know it took a lot of time effort and brilliant thinking and careful work. It is just me, my no see it brain and clumsy fingers and lack of computer skills.

Is the ice puzzle just navigating the ice to get into the temple, because if so, yes. Now I'm in a big room but Avery isn't talking to me at all and I'm just wandering around. There's little dragon head statues and small sundials but nothing is reacting to me. Could it be a glitch?

Got all my stuff done today, no glitches, yay! Just a little bit of lag with the snow in the other place.
P.S. Since the doggo finding was added late on the first day (i.e. I didn't do it because I didn't know it was a thing until the next day), will this hurt me in getting all the things for my house? I want all the things D:
|Posted by: Process Dec 27 2016, 12:48 AM|
Missing a daily quest won't hurt you in getting everything
|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Dec 27 2016, 12:49 AM|
I believe what you are on right now is the ice puzzle. Did Avery tell you to go first and that he'd follow? You need to cross that block of ice and get all the way clear to the other side before Avery gives any more instructions.
|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Dec 27 2016, 12:51 AM|
If you look at the icons in the top right corner, you should see a green check mark on the book icon, as Avery is the story today. So yes, that's "it" for today. You got returned back near your home, yeah?

Try refreshing outside your door before you enter and exit? Try refreshing while in your house before you leave it? Try resetting your location one more time? Someone else had this problem, tried all the usual troubleshooting, and suddenly the next time they tried resetting their location, it actually worked to prompt the next story.

The story quests are added one per day and can be done all at once. there are also 5 repeatable quests. they can be done every day if you want for more furnature. So, the story progress does save.

| Ya I'm in the ice temple and he won't talk to me either, the ice puzzle is also impossible to do in reverse AKA you can't get back once you've completed it.
I'll do a "out of bounds" reset. maybe I was supposed to talk to him before the ice puzzle
Resetting Worked!!! When I finished the ice maze this time Avery slid over and completed it too which he didn't do last time.
Not sure why the bug happened but this might help others!

|I had the same problem in the second room of the temple, after the ice area - I interacted with everything, tried to talk to Avery, hard-refreshed, still Avery ignored me. Then I tried to walk back to the previous room and he called me back to him, and I finished the room. So I don't know. But keep trying?|

| 3 glitches where the views don't fully load. I got screen shots of 2 of them the other is the dog park before I talked with Jade. The white areas don't allow passing over them but luckily I was able to go around them to finish my quests.
Once I completed the quest where the white was the white disappeared and the view was in full color. That is why I don't have a screenshot of the dog park. I was blocked by the white until I found Jade. After talking with him the view was in full color and I could see and go to the dog park.
Hope this makes sense.

I've entered the temple, and reached the room with the patterns on the floor.
What happens is this: Dragon drops us off, I enter the temple with Avery following.In the ice floor room, I try to talk to Avery and he says nothing. I cross the ice floor room, and Avery doesn't follow. I cross into the room with patterns on the floor, and he's already there but won't talk to me. Then nothing happens in the room with patterns on the floor. It is at that point that I reset.

It's 6 repeatable, the book is for the story (if it's checkmarked, it means you are up to date with the story).
For the paw, talk with a green-haired guy in the dog park in Alhira
For the "bird", search for a baby gold dragon, east of Alhira, near two adult dragons

That's 69 items so far (unless I made a counting error). I think I've done the quests as many times as currently possible, on the first day you could do them again after around 21:00 DC time with the introduction of the icons so I think people who were on between then and midnight may have gotten an extra item collection. Sorry for repeats, I haven't looked at others' item lists to avoid spoilers. I'm assuming that each rug has four variants (small, medium, large, square), each bed has 2 (small, large), each plush has a "plush" and a "toy" (set in center or corner), etc. And of course if an item is labelled "2," there's going to be a "1." But I can't be certain, I wouldn't be surprised if some sets were missing things like an armoire or some items only had some of the variants (or just one), since that would be a LOT of items.

|What are you supposed to do once you get to the top of the ice temple? Thanks for any help!|

Oh, thank you very much!
With the help of http://www.dedupelist.com, I got rid of duplicates and was able to update the list on the wiki to include double the items!

What do you mean by top? What's the last dialog box you saw? Or the last action you performed?

I went across the ice slidey thing and into the next room and I can't find anything else to do there.

Did Avery follow you? They should tell you where to explore next (to the left). If Avery didn't follow you, try: refreshing, doing a hard refresh/clearing cache, and resetting your location.

|Looking at the problems other people are having with the temple, can anyone help me because after the ice sliding puzzle nothing happens and I don't know how to do the stuff other people are doing to fix the problem.|

The reset your location is a text option button with the game text explanation.
