[Sticky] Longest Night Approaches!
+9

As the tribes of Elyria count down the months to the Longest Night, each prepares for the coming winter in their own unique way. The Brudvir spend their Winterswatch fortifying their holdings against winter and the threat of raids, while the Kypiq ward off the Sunsleep with raucous displays of light and festivity. The Hrothi observe the coming of the Longest Night by recognizing the virtue of charity; providing gifts, packaged together in a bundle to be opened one at a time. Sometimes simple, but often quite elaborate, these packages contain all the seasons’ small gifts, cunningly stored together.

We hearken to this tradition with the Elyrian Longest Night Calendar. Inside each calendar-shaped gift-box is a collection of 18 different items, one for each month of the three-year long, Longest Night. Items in the box are composed of a random assortment of past promotional items, including some higher ticket items. In addition, each gift-box contains three unique items, only available in the Longest Night Calendar![1]

The Longest Night Calendar goes on sale Friday, November 29th and will be available for a reduced price of $60 USD (20% off) from Friday through Monday before returning to its normal price of $75 USD on Tuesday. The Longest Night Premium Calendar (Ltd. Supply) will go on sale for $75 USD on Friday through Monday, before returning to its regular price of $95 USD on Tuesday! What’s the difference? The Longest Night Calendar has a minimum value of $175 (with a max. of over $200), while the Premium Calendar has a minimum value of $275 in promo items (with a max. over $300)!

Longest Night Calendar Mechanics

Beginning Wednesday, December 11th and going until Tuesday, December 31st, each Longest Night Calendar held in the inventory of an account with an Elyrian Package or higher will deposit an item into the user’s inventory every Elyrian month (every 28 hours) with a value ranging from $6 USD to $30 USD, while each Premium Calendar will deposit an item ranging from $10 USD to $40 USD. If a calendar is purchased after the start of the event, all unclaimed items from the gift-box will be deposited into the holder’s account during the last opening on the eve of December 31st.

As a final note, there’s no limit to the number of gift-boxes that can be held in your inventory, and both the items found inside the box, as well as the gift-boxes themselves are all giftable!

Note: Each box contains a limited number of items. Transferring the box to another does not replenish any previously “opened” items.

The Season of Gifting

'Tis the season of gifting! We’re pleased to announce that Gift Cards will once again be making their way to the store on Friday, November 29th and will remain in the store until December 31st before returning to hibernate in the vault.

[1] Promotional items may appear in future Kickstarterversaries.

We will continue to add to this as questions (and their answers) come up! Most of these were collected from you, our community. Keep asking us questions and we'll find you answers if we can!

Will each calendar box of the same value have the same items as other calendars of that value? E.G. Player 1 and Player 2 both buy Premium Calendars. Do they get the same items?

EDIT - The FAQ was posted as I wrote this. Never mind.

Loot crates are a chance at getting a random item that is lower than the price for which you paid.

The calendars are literally you doubling + the amount of money you spent. It’s not a loot crate because you aren’t losing money with the chance of hitting it big. You’re getting a bunch of items worth more than what you paid.

That's gambling ;)

Wow thanks for describing what loot crates are. The value you get out of it doesn't change that it's a loot box.

You literally released a sketch picture of animals from a while back (which is completely subject to change), and then released loot boxes an hour later as a promo. Wait sorry I mean my 75-95$ Christmas calender. Judging by some of the comments, at least I'm not the only person who was unhappy.

This is a holiday sale. Loot boxes are a form of gambling in that you might get something worth less than your purchase. All of these items are worth more than the purchase total. It's just another form of a sale, made into an game-themed advent calendar, for people who were going to buy things on sale, regardless. They hadn't promised anything at all, so if you're uncomfortable with them, don't participate.

If these are the "loot boxes" that you're afraid of, I'm not sure what to say.

Happy holidays!
