The holidays are here on TalonRO! December is a special month in Midgard - with lights and fresh snow beginning to enter the landscape, and towns beginning to set out their presents as winter fills the air. With festive spirits just around the corner, we're getting ready to celebrate a month of wonderful surprises, events, additions, and more! As usual at this time for the month, we have started our annual Charity Fundraiser, the Advent Calendar and more! Also, enjoy a new TamTam's Odyssey, Monthly Costume Box, and a bunch of bug fixes! We hope that you enjoy it!
TalonRO is pleased to partner once more with GoFundMe Charity this holiday season in our annual fundraiser to benefit Doctors Without Borders. Best known for its projects in conflict zones and in countries affected by endemic diseases, Doctors Without Borders is active in 70 countries with over 35,000 personnel mostly local doctors, nurses and other medical professionals, logistical experts, water and sanitation engineers and administrators. Doctors Without Borders provides medical assistance to people affected by conflict, epidemics, disasters, or exclusion from healthcare. Their teams are made up of tens of thousands of health professionals, logistic and administrative staff - most of them hired locally. Doctors Without Borders' actions are guided by medical ethics and the principles of impartiality, independence and neutrality.
100% of all proceeds go directly to Doctors Without Borders through the GoFundMe Charity partnership.
From now until December 31st, 2020 - TalonRO will thank those who have donated to the Doctors Without Borders TalonRO Fundraiser with a unique in-game gift. Keep in mind that these donations do -not- give you any Talon Cash like a donation to TalonRO would.
For more information, please visit the Charity Fundraiser topic.
In the previous chapter of An Unexpected Alliance you helped get the Dimensional Device to work! When the gang first tried it out, they saw some strange...entity who tried to contact you! Who is this person and how is it that they're contacting you?!
This next episode of An Unexpected Alliance brings the story to its conclusion. We hope you all enjoyed our little event quest for the past months and... are excited for more things to come!
If you're unfamiliar with this concept, Advent Calendars are special calendars which mark each day from now through Christmas Eve. Behind each day on the calendar is often something nice - a small gift in celebration of the big day coming on December 25th! This year, we're pleased to continue our holiday tradition to say thank you for being part of the TalonRO community and to celebrate you with countdown to Christmas - complete with a plethora of presents. Click on the image above, or here to visit the calendar!
Claim your Advent Calendar prize in four easy steps:
Visit the TalonRO Advent Calendar and look for today's date! You'll only be able to open a present from the calendar on that current day, so we hope that you won't miss any of them.
Don't forget: all days start and end on Midgard (server) time - so be sure to note what time it is on TalonRO!
Find the day's present in the calendar and click on it. Each present will have a special holiday greeting card, as drawn by members of the TalonRO community!
Along with the card, you'll receive a special unique code! Take this code to our Advent Calendar NPC in Lutie and enter the code exactly as you see it after opening your Advent Calendar present in the calendar.
Remember: each code is unique to your Master Account!
You'll receive your daily Advent Calendar prize if you've entered your code in correctly with the Advent Giver NPC in Lutie, It could be something small and useful, or something much more rare and wonderful!
All of these gifts are our way of saying thank you for being part of the TalonRO community!
All Advent Calendar Gifts this year are account-bound and will only be available on the day they are offered - meaning that you can't log-in and collect prizes from later dates. To receive all 24 gifts, you'll need to visit the Advent Calendar and the NPC in Lutie each day from now through Christmas Eve.
