An event is a special activity, almost always put on by the Gods. Upcoming event details are
usually given using the show event command, a few days or so in advance of the real thing.
Types of events
Some of the kinds of events that have been seen on the game include:
- Death march: a god runs a large group through hard mobs. The god tanks the mob, but does no damage.
- exploration contest: The players' knowledge of the game world is tested, usually by putting a board somewhere out in the wild and seeing who posts on it first.
- area tour: a god walks a group through an area and gives historical information or interesting stories about the area. Tours someties have a lot of mob killing involved, and can turn into death marches.
- temporary quest: Players participate in a quest during some time frame. Most of the anniversary celebrations have a temporary quest of some sort.
