Happy New Year,
It has been a while since we did a news update and we wanted to take the opportunity to announce our plans for 2022 that need attention. In 2021 we finished some of our planned automations, introduced a lot of new items, lore, and art, and completed some of our massive backlog. We completed the Companion resource pages which took most of last year. Even with the amount of backlog that we have been working on, the ARPG and group has been a blast to run. With our super efficient mod team and amazing community we have had a great year. The community has submitted great feedback throughout 2021 which a lot of was either implemented or added to our future todolists. So keep the feedback coming!
We are hard at work on our backlog and we have decided to host some smaller prompt events for the rest of the year, since we did not plan on creating another big one. In these prompt events you can collect tickets, unlock forms, and purchase collectibles. Instead of these being a surprise we wanted to test out announcing them ahead of time. A prompt event has no extra games, so stay tuned for some relaxing art time, fun lore, and cute collectibles to match the event themes! You will be getting to know some of the NPC’s as well.
Dragon Migration | September 15 - September 30
We have some exciting news today! We have completed the automated version of Treasure Hunt for the site. Participation no longer needs to be approved through DeviantART comments and users can now play it each week just by having an account on our site and an approved Griffolk.
This news update is a heads up for upcoming content for 2021. Also we are going on our annual holiday break December 15th - January 4th. Mods will be returning on the 4th of January. Time Loot for January will be done on January 10th instead of the 1st so keep a close eye on the Griffia Discord. The extension will give mods time to catch up on all jobs related to Time Loot and give users extra time to prepare coming back from their own holidays.
Other things to be aware of. Games will not be closing for the break!
Weekly games will be updated and re-opened each week but they will not be banked until the Mods return on the 4th.
We are making some changes to how Magic Familiars are redeemed to further streamline the process for users. Users will no longer need to go to Magic Familiar Redemption to get their Magic Familiar gifts banked. Instead they will be banked automatically with activities and games upon approval. We will be updating all of the comments to reflect this, the old chain will still be open until November 25th.
