Main Organisers Shadowfax
Theme volcano
Summer Solstice 2020 was the version of the Summer Solstice Celebration that took place during the final half of June 2020 and ended at the beginning of July 2020. It is the eighth such event. As usual, it was organzied by the world builder Shadowfax. Fellow world builder Morpheus assisted with the event this year.

The 'event show' command displayed the following throughout the event:

The Summer Solstice Celebration has begun!

The first event area available is the Starving Rock, a single player zone
designed for players of all levels.  The strength of monsters within will
scale up with your level.  The goal of this area is to kill 1000 monsters
by the time the event ends on the 29th.  You can exit the area at any time
and pick up where you left off later.  Use 'event start 108' to enter the

The next available event area is the Puzzlewood Mire.  This area is
intended for high level group who know what they're doing.  The scenario
involves defeating wave after wave of monsters of increasing strength.  All
waves must be completed in a single instance.  You receive credit any mob
of equal or higher level than the wave you're currently on.  There are 31
in this year's event.  Use 'event start 137' to enter the area.

The main event area is Mowami Island.  The volcano on this island is about
to erupt, and villagers have prayed to the gods for deliverance.  You can
be the answer to their prayers!  Type 'event start 154' to be transported
to Mowami Island and start the scenario.  Fight fires, lava and poisonous
gases to keep the villagers safe and prevent their huts from being
destroyed.  If your character doesn't have a lot of magic, try levelling up
the Firefighter bonus class to give yourself the tools you will need.  The
scenario scales in difficulty with level and takes about a half hour to
complete.  (If you fail the mission, you need to start again in a new
instance.)  There is a strategy guide about how to complete this scenario
on board 8 if you need more help.

Please connect to the 'event' channel and refer to the 'event schedule' for
further updates.

Subject: Summer Solstice Celebration 2020 Prizes!
Post-event prizes for the Summer Solstice Celebration 2020 are now
available!  Talk to Xena in room 1388 to receive your prize(s).

If you completed Wave 0 in the Puzzlewood or 100 kills on Starving Rock,
you get a participation award: a commemorative frisbee!

If you completed the 1000 kills quest on Starving Rock, you win a ring of
limitless possibilities.  This will randomize its stats every time you cast
dispel magic on it and will adjust to your level.

If you completed two of the three event areas (1000 kills on Starving Rock,
Wave 30 of the Puzzlewood or saved the people of Mowami Island from the
volcano), you win a prize voucher that can be exchanged for a piece of
equipment.  Turn the voucher in to the class guildmaster of your choice in
Ralnoth.  For example, for the gauntlets of the fire warrior, you give the
voucher to the guildmaster of swordsmen.

The gauntlets are all hands wear location pieces of equipment with 1
castlevel and absorbfire by 5.  They are class flagged.  For example, the
mage version looks like this:

Item: 'gauntlets red flames fire mage' 
Weight: 1  Size: 1'0"  Level: 38
Type: ARMOR   Composition: METAL   Defense: 2 ac-apply
Object is: MAGE 
Wear locations are: HANDS 
Item has other effects:
Affects:  MAGE_CAST_LEVEL by 1
Affects:  ABSORB_FIRE by 5

If you change your mind, return the gauntlets to the guildmaster to get
back a voucher.  (This will be disabled in about a month to prevent
crafting abuse.)  Gauntlets from previous events can also be returned for a
voucher, if you so choose.

For completing all three event areas, you win the grand prize: a cloak of

If you don't want your ring of limitless possibilities or cloak of flames,
you can give it back to Xena for a prize voucher.  You can also turn in any
rings of limitless possibilities from previous events.

If you don't want to trade your voucher for equipment, you can give it to
Xena for 2000 gold.

Also if you're interested in completing the 'Obtained Soul Eater,
ultramarine form' feat but have since lost your Soul Eater, you can get
another one from Xena by giving her 10000 gold.  This will give you a
carnelian form Soul Eater.  You must have done the prerequisite quests of
rescuing Lady Lyonors, slaying Lady Morgana and having had Lynette explain
Soul Eater to you to obtain the feat.  (There is no advantage to gaining
multiple Soul Eaters, so don't waste your gold if you already have one.)

Xena will be available until the end of the Feast of the Sacrifice event on
August 6th.

TL/DR Talk to Xena until she stops giving you stuff.


The event was originally scheduled to end June 26th.
