Here is the official announcement thread for the Fall Festival of 2018!

The Fall Festival is not only a celebration of the yearly harvest, but also a time where Sylestians enjoy everything spooky and frightful! It is an especially celebrated time of the year because it marks the yearly return of the Ryories! Over the next few weeks, you can participate in many various activities to obtain unique rewards, to find unique pets, and most importantly to have a lot of fun!

Explore the Festival Zone
https://www.sylestia.com/explore/newzone/?zone=umbrasveil
This zone is recommended for players using pets of Level 10 and above!

The above will take you to the Festival Zone for the Fall Festival, Umbra's Veil. Please note, if you are exploring another zone in Astryl's Vale, you will have to exit the zone first. If you are in a battle, you will have to finish your battle first.

The zone is currently host to 33 Wild Themed Sylesties, 17 of which are new this year, 7 Named locations, Mysterious Pumpkins, Sylesti Nests, hidden Treasure Chests, and so much more! Umbra's Veil is a brand new map and is the largest map yet for any Festival.

While not yet active, there will also be a zone-wide Event available with extra Named and extra goodies! We will post an announcement regarding this Event as soon as it becomes available.




Sylesti Brewing
https://www.sylestia.com/festival/festival_fall/sylesti_brewing

Sylesti Brewing has returned!

All players will start out with two free Cauldrons to use. You can always purchase additional one-time use Cauldrons for Diamonds, Gold, or Chocolate Coins! To begin brewing, just click on your Cauldron and fill it with Broth. After that you will need to add a Brewing Catalyst to your brew, which will determine which Themed Pet the Brew will produce when completed. You can find Brew Catalysts by participating in almost any of the Fall Festival's features or by purchasing them directly from the Festival Shop or the Diamond Shop.

Please note, some Catalysts are marked with "Aged". This means that is was a Themed that was available in the previous year.

Once you have your Sylesti Brew started, you will need to watch over it and keep it cooking at a good rate. Sometimes, the Brew will be out of balance and you will have to use a Brewing Agent to normalize it. Doing so will decrease the amount of time the Sylesti will be required to cook.

There are also Quality and Bonus measurements. Preventing your Brew from having lingering Conditions and continuing to counteract Conditions will improve its Quality. If you keep your Brew at Perfect Quality, it will receive a Bonus every hour. If a Brew has certain amounts of Bonuses by the time it is completed, it will receive up to two special bonuses to the resulting Themed Pet! This may be a tad confusing, so I will try to break it down further.

There are four different tiers of Quality:

Normal: Slowest rate of Hourly Progress and Agent Progress towards completion. No Hourly Bonus. No Agent Bonus.
Good: Double rate of Hourly Progress towards completion. Slowest rate of Agent Progress towards completion. No Hourly Bonus. No Agent Bonus.
Great: Triple rate of Hourly Progress towards completion. Double rate of Agent Progress towards completion. No Hourly Bonus. Single Agent Bonus.
Perfect: Quadruple rate of Hourly Progress towards completion. Double rate of Agent Progress towards completion. Double Hourly Bonus. Single Agent Bonus.


Using an Expedient Brew Agent on a Brew will increase all Hourly and Agent Progress and Bonuses by 300% until the Brew is completed.

If a Condition is ignored for too long, then every Hour a Brew's Quality will decrease by one tier until settling back at Normal.

Each Brew can unlock two Bonuses. This can easily be tracked in the list of information for each Brew. For any Brew, the first Bonus is an additional boost to the resulting Themed Pet's Statistics, equal to two additional Ranks of using Spectral Essences. For Majestic Catalysts, the second Bonus is an additional two Ranks boosted to Statistics. However, for all other Catalysts, the second Bonus is an additional Carried Trait to an empty slot.

Furthermore, you can also use Brew Additives to alter characteristics about your Themed Pet!

Exceptional Blood Vial: The completed Brew will be a 3-Visible Pet (2-Visible if Majestic).
Greater Blood Vial: The completed Brew will be a 2-Visible Pet (1-Visible if Majestic).
Lesser Blood Vial: The completed Brew will be a 1-Visible Pet (2-Carry if Majestic).

Expedient Brew Agent: Removes the waiting period between incurred conditions. This allows repeated application of Brewing Agents until the Brew is complete. Additionally, triples both the passive growth and the Brew Agent growth until completed, as well as Bonus gained if in Perfect Quality. These can only be used once that specific Themed Pet has already been created once by anyone on the Site.
Spectral Essence: Boosts the Base Stats of a Pet by 100 Health and 5 Str, Int, Dex, and Agi. Can be used four times. Requires 2 per use.
Sticky Goo: Allows you to guarantee a Visible Trait in a specific eligible slot. Requires 2 per use.
Vampire Dust: Guarantees that a Visible Trait will have a hidden Carried Trait. Requires 2 per use.
Gummy Puppy Tail: Guarantees that the Pet will be a Male. Requires 6 per use.
Sugar and Spice: Guarantees that the Pet will be a Female. Requires 6 per use.


There are a total of 26 unique Themed Pets available from Sylesti Brewing. There are 4 Restricted Trait Majestic Themes, 8 Fabled Themes, and 14 Regular Themes.

Lastly, there are a handful of unique Titles available from Brewing!

Premier Brewmaster / Premier Brewmistress: First Player to finish any Sylesti Brew.
Majestic Brewmaster / Majestic Brewmistress: Finish a Majestic Sylesti Brew.
Fabled Brewmaster / Fabled Brewmistress: Finish all Fabled Sylesti Brews.
Brewmaster / Brewmistress: Finish all Regular Sylesti Brews.
Wondrous Warlock / Wondrous Witch: Finish one of all 24 Sylesti Brews.
The Perfectionist: Finish a Sylesti Brew with 2 Bonuses.
Benevolent Brewer: Use Brewing Agents on other players' Brews 25 times.

Trick or Treating
https://www.sylestia.com/festival/festival_fall/trick_or_treat/

Trick or Treating is back! Visit all fellow Sylestians with your best Trick or Treat. Hosts can then either give you a complimentary Piece of Candy or give you a personal item (from a list of approved Festival-related items) from their Inventory. As a Trick or Treater, your goal is to collect each of the 21 unique Pieces of Candy. Once you have at least one of each, you can turn them into a Handful of Candy, which can be opened for awesome rewards!

You can also hand out Trick or Treating Baskets as gifts to other players to give them awesome rewards! Be the door that everyone flocks to!

You can view the status of your candy collecting by viewing your Trick or Treating profile. There are unique Titles that are available by participating. They are as follows:

-Trickster: Trick or Treat 500 times as a Visitor
-Candy Dispenser: Hand out 500 Pieces of Candy
-The Sweet Tooth: Create 5 Handfuls of Candy
-The Kind-Hearted: Hand out a Personal Item





Explore the Haunted House
https://www.sylestia.com/festival/festival_fall/haunted_house/

The Haunted House is now open! Visit the link above to play!

You must purchase an entry with either 250 Diamonds, 500,000 Gold, or 800 Chocolate Coins. If using Chocolate Coins, be sure to consume them from your Inventory first to add them onto your account.

There are 3 Stages to the Haunted House: the Gloomy Cemetery, the Haunting First Floor, and the Eerie Basement. You begin in the Gloomy Cemetery with 8 Shovels and must dig from the available spots to find either buried treasure or the Ghostly Key. Finding the Ghostly Key allows you to advance to the next Stage, the Haunting First Floor.

In the second Stage, you get 6 Brooms and again must sweep for hidden treasure or the Ghostly Key. Finding the Ghostly Key again will allow you to enter the third and final Stage, the Eerie Basement.

In the final Stage, you get 4 Torches to use to reveal hidden treasure before the game ends and you can play again.

For each Stage that you advance to, the available prizes get better and better.

As you play, you will notice various tiles in all Stages covered with different Objects. Objects can be removed by consuming one of your Tools for that Stage and often hide the more rare prizes underneath!

Additionally, if you run out of Tools on a Stage, you can opt to purchase more Tools for Diamonds. However, you can only do this once per Stage.

Lastly, as a new addition to this year's Haunted House, you will sometimes find the Genie's Lamp! The Genie's Lamp is a special item that allows you to summon a Genie and be granted one of three available wishes. The Genie's Lamp also carries over from one game to the next until it is used, meaning you do not have to use it during the game that you found it! You can wait to use it at anytime! However, once used, it will be consumed until you find it again.

The available wishes will change depending on the current situation, but are grouped into 3 basic functions:

Remove All Objects
Grant the Ghostly Key
Grant Additional Tools


For all available prizes from the Haunted House, please refer to the bottom of the Haunted House page where all prizes are listed.




Leaderboard Contests
https://www.sylestia.com/festival/festival_fall/sylesti_contests/

The 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th Place finishers of each Contest will receive a 2-Visible Brewing Pet of that Species. All top 15 winners will receive a Contest Leaderboard Pouch which can contain some of the Festival's best items!

Last year, the Halloween set was exclusive to the Haunted House. That has been retired and now the Golden and Steel versions have replaced it.

The other 3 sets were in the Festival Shop last year so they are again this year for those who didn't get them or for those who are new.

Yea, as Hdawg said, whatever shows up is approved.

I do plan on taking a closer look at the list though and making any necessary adjustments. I didn't get a chance to yesterday.

But mostly, it's what I deemed valuable consumables or at least semi-valuable Avatar Items.

Here is the Leaderboard Contest Schedule:

Contest Schedule:
Enemies Defeated Contest #1: 11/2 at 12:00pm - 11/4 at 11:59pm
Enemies Defeated Contest #2: 11/8 at 6:00am - 11/11 at 11:59pm
Enemies Defeated Contest #3: 11/13 at 12:00pm - 11/17 at 11:59pm

Pets Nurtured Contest #1: 11/2 at 12:00pm - 11/4 at 11:59pm
Pets Nurtured Contest #2: 11/8 at 6:00am - 11/11 at 11:59pm
Pets Nurtured Contest #3: 11/13 at 12:00pm - 11/17 at 11:59pm


The dates are a little odd... I was trying to avoid Election Day in the US and the Thanksgiving holiday. So it didn't leave too much wiggle room to fit 3 contests in that didn't all run on the exact same days of the week. I hope this is enough of a variance for people of differing schedules to be able to partake in at least one or two of them.

Good luck! First set begins tomorrow at noon.
