February promotion: Arrows!

Tiur is away but he left me this to post for February's promo, enjoy!


Online at https://www.aetolia.com/credits/ you will find packages of arrows for sale. Now, somewhat chaotically, these arrows do not exist physically and are merely tied to your heart. To fire an arrow like that, you'll need a Heartstring Bow... CALLFORTH HEARTSTRING. Then it's as simple as finding someone who needs a little love and SHOOT <person> (LoS or in the same room, some combat restrictions apply)

Being shot will get Easy Katy's attention! Katy will find those that have been hit with arrows and pass out a bag of prizes for them. That prize is limited to once a Howling. In addition, the person who shoots the most targets before the howling, and the person who has been shot the most times, both will get 25cr! All ties split those rewards.

At the end of the day, around the Howling, Katy will start looking for people who have been shooting her arrows, and much like Ironbeard.... you get a present! 25 arrows fired nets a gold purse, 5 a silver, and singles a bronze. If they don't divide easily you'll get a mix of purses in descending order gold->silver->bronze. This resets on the Howling, so if you want gold purses, don't spread out the shots!
- NOTE: If there is demand, I will make a command to just call Katy. That way you don't have to wait if you've shot all you want to. Let me know in the forums!

So let's summarize:

Buy arrows online.

    ..no. Again. Really hope he gives them out retrospectively if he adds them later...

    Katy never actually showed up for me after I was shot with an arrow and had shot others with arrows. Then again I can't be on at howling frequently.
  • CzciborCzcibor Member Posts: 172 ✭✭✭
    It took me a while after logging in to get her.

    Posting through pain meds (got my wisdom teef out) so sorry if sense not making.

    Promo will update to do org creds when I'm back. Will also make Katy summon ability.

    Get better soon!

    Some quick feedback: having the ability to summon Katy is about the only thing this promo needs, so I look forward to it! I like promotions like this where there is a stated minimum value at the very least. USD. It puts a floor on the value of my purchase and makes decision-making a lot easier.

    +1 for summoning Katy please, I’m impatient and spoiled from other promos
  • IesidIesid Member Posts: 182 ✭✭✭
    Weird aside for feedback: during months like this, perhaps we could cycle in some temporary purchase options?

    Example: offer token of passage for credits til end of Feb - this way players can get that, if they want, and not feel screwed by RNG (which would be spitting credits into their hands to use on the aforementioned purchase). Just put a pricetag on it. :(

    Is there a way to transfer arrows? Either to trade or split a purchase between alts?

    Hm, I suppose I can put in a way to transfer arrows! Update incoming, I'm just slow.

    Orgs now get credits for Valentine arrow purchases.

    You may PROMOTIONS HURRYUP to act as though the howling occurred and ready yourself for Katy's
    visit. This means she may not appear immediately, but you are now on her list. It -should- only take
    5-10 minutes. If it does not, message me, and I'll fix that. Anyway, once she appears she rewards as
    if the day were over, so make sure you shoot however many you want before you do this.

    PROMOTIONS ARROW GIVE <#> to - need to be in the room, but gives your arrows over. As always,
    any abuse I'll just shrub you.
