Cranky Christmas 2017

Post by Boomland Jenkins »

This is the 4th Cranky Christmas. Let's take a quick walk through the history of Cranky Christmas...

In 2014, we hunted down the holiday Cranksters whom were terrorizing the countryside.

In 2015, the Cranksters teamed up with McPry's crew and held down the orc fort outside the village of Cove.

In 2016, we helped the villagers of Cranky Town with their battle against the Cranksters.

In 2017, we need to return to Cranky Town and put a stop to the Cranksters once and for all! The threat has gotten so bad, that the mayor of Cranky Town has a quest for anyone brave enough to take it.

Cranky Mountain Getaway will be open until January 7th.

Image

During the holiday season only, Cranky Town has opened a moongate to Britain. Cranky Town is the number one mountain getaway in Kos Heb East.

If you haven’t explored Kos Heb East, you’re in for a real treat. The few who call it their home are the crankiest of all.

Image

South of Cranky Town lays the Kingdom of Krampus, a place of mischievous elves and holiday decor!

Image
Committing acts of (elf) murder around the Krampus Pole may create dangerous situations.

Beyond the southern forest, you'll find a red moongate leading to the lawless town of Buccaneer's Den's.

Holiday Event Details


A Quest to Save Santa
Santa has been kidnapped by the no good holiday Cranksters! Speak to the Mayor of Cranky Town to see what you can do to help.

Cranky Loot
All of the holiday creatures have a chance of dropping a variety of loot including: silver, Cranky Christmas trophy (surfer), and an exclusive, "Cranky Town" snow globe.

Ice Fishing
Just like last year, you will be able to go ice fishing at Cranky Town. You might even find something new and shiny in that frozen pond. Fishing will be available around December 23rd.

Battle in the Krampus Kingdom
Evil elves keep appearing all around the Krampus Pole. Kill enough of them and something extraordinarily evil will surely appear...

Christmas Day
Even if we don't manage to save Santa, he will magically arrive in Britain on Christmas morning and remain in town until the new year.

He will be staying at the Counselor’s Guild near Blackthorn’s Keep as usual. In this time, you can approach Santa and receive a gift. You can select from various items. You’ll have to wait until Christmas day to find out what is available.

Quest "Cheat Sheet"
Just in case there are any doubts about what creatures count for the quest...

Poison Elementals = Christmas Trees
Elf = Elves
Brigands = Carolers and Cranksters
Evil Mage Lord = Scrooge

Are there free roaming cranksters in the wilderness too?

You can expect the cranky pandemic to spread throughout Britannia sometime this week...

Someone on Discord last night claimed they got a wondering spawn in the wilderness...can you confirm that this is possible, or are we still waiting for the wilderness spawns?

I've seen the reindeer, and oddly a few over stuffed and red bourbon turkeys last night. The reindeer weren't carrying anything.

Turkeys huh??

Maybe they are being spawned as well since turkey is a popular meal for Christmas as well?

The ice fishing hole is now open for business! It's not the same old ice hole from last year. You can expect to fish up new items if you put enough effort (gold) into it!


The reports of roaming elves and reindeer are true. It's only a matter of time before the Cranksters get into Britannia too!

Though you'll probably see the same old ice holes hanging around trying to PK people there...

Sorry couldn't resist

The teleport gate in Cranky town was moved last night.

You can no longer double click the gate to leave the area. This is a great benefit for the PKs.


I thought it was suspicious that the (GB) PKs were talking about messaging Boom when I was hiding near the pond.
