Pet system released, plasma special, new charity, competitions & loads more

Hey vampires,

This is a pretty long blog as there is lots of cool stuff happening! I hope you're sitting comfy.

4th July fireworks
Hope you liked the fireworks, a total of 12,534 turns were giving out yesterday.

Pet system released
That's right vampires, you can go get your hands dirty. This months round begins right now, it will be only 3ish weeks instead of a full month. I hope you'll all take part in using the feature, report bugs, give feedback & make suggestions to make it even better. Want to know how it fully works? Read the FAQ posted on the pets page (must be located in Mount Tilia to view).

Just to clear up a few questions not on the FAQ:

- The VIP days are not taken from you, you are just required to have that many days to have that pet. If your get the 200 VIP day pet, and then your VIP days slip down to 199, that doesn't matter, you still get to keep your pet. Only if you discard your pet (coming soon) you will need 200 vip days to buy it again.

- I know there there wont be many kills to start with, as there are around 750 pets at the moment created, after this month, i'll make any necessary changes to accommodate the way pets work.

I have a couple more features to add to the pets... but for now, we'll run it this month with what we have. The QP wins needed, the battle timer limits etc may all change, we'll see how it goes. (This includes adding extra security)

There will never be any Paypal interference that will give you any game advantage in the pet system. Everyone has an equal chance to get prizes and QP.

New Charity!
In order to celebrate the release of the pets this month, it only seem fitting to have this months charity in aid of animals. 20% of the revenue from the charity packs and Trik's potions will be donated to the RSPCA. Thanks for everyone's support with the Help For Heroes campaign last month.

August Charity!
I know I'm getting a bit ahead of myself here, but to keep on the pet spirit, the August charity will be an adopt an animal campaign. Whatever it made from the packs will be spread out over a year to adopt an animal. But which animal? You get to choose! By buying a charity pack this month (includes potions) you get to have your say in what animal we adopt next month. When you've got an RSPCA charity pack, go to the Dead City under "government" and cast your vote.

New Dark Ruby Pack
As you probably know, each weapon and armour has 3 available ruby slots. Due to popular demand, I have added a Dark Ruby VIP pack which includes 3 sets of both (saves time of people having to buy the pack 3 times separately), there is also a bit of discount by doing this as well.
June Competition Winners
The top 3 dirt finders were:

1 - 1657 grams Aislinn (54285)
2 - 1633 grams Darren Iceshard (245670)
3 - 1598 grams Misha Keates (208044)

Congratulations.  Thanks to everyone who took part. If you had over 50 grams of dirt, you get a free QP!

July Competition
This month's competition is a nice and easy guessing game. The new lottery system opened on the 21st February 2010 (Can you believe it's been that long?) The winner of this month's competition is the person who guesses closes to the TOTAL amount of money that has been paid out. (Until July 3rd 2011). Everyone gets one free guess by posting on this thread, if you guess dead on, you will win 1000 plasma. If nobody guesses dead on, the closest person will win 25 plasma. No guesses will be counted if they're posted past the end of the month.

Plasma special
Due to several requests, there is a 2 week summer plasma special! (Don't forget to put on your sunscreen) All packs gives you a sun image in chats & forums too. Go get your hands on some cheap plasma & VIP!

And for those who pay by mobile phone...

I've heard & listened to your requests, and now offering special packs using phones too. Head over to the mobile phone packs page for more details. This will last for 2 weeks also. The specials are still up for ultimate game card and Wallie too, these will be taken off after this special too :)

This weekend (PROJECT RAHP)
This weekend I'm going to be doing something I've never done before, it won't be a permanent feature (as though many would like it) but every now and then won't hurt, right? Stay tuned to find out what Project: RAHP is.

Hope you enjoy =D

So where's the free stuff for the top players in the June contest? "Top 50 players in the June Competition will get QP. The top 3 placed players will get plasma." :P Just being a pain in the ass. XD

If we adopt an Animal, I do hope Ash will keep it and take pictures of it and post them around the site. I hopes a Wolf :D

Stumbled across something while I was wandering around the site... is there a hidden competition as well as this does not seem to be part of any quests.
