The annual Festival of the Twelfth Moon is drawing to a close, and the Jester of the Festivult has already started to pack up his bag of treats. The Jester will be accepting the copper, silver, and gold festival coins until February 4th, at which time he will dispel his floating puzzles, and leave the city until the next Festivult! So if you have any remaining festival coins for the Jester, be sure to pay him a visit before February 4th.

From everyone at Turbine, we hope you’ve had a wonderful Festivult!

I really love the Festivult mechanic. The treats are very useful but not so over-powered as to affect game balance. I'd love to see something similar to this put into the game on a permanent basis.

We'll miss you, Jester.

That's right good little Adventurers! Soon I will make my magical voyage back across the Thunder Sea.


Jester of Festivult
Was a jolly happy dwarf
But he waved goodbye saying don't you cry...
I'll....be....
back next year...at...the...warf? No...
Next Festivult I'll...come forth? Again?
Ok I specialize in baking, not rhyming.

Merry Festivult!

One has to wonder if the Jester uses the Craft Wondrous Item feat or some previously unknown Bake Magical Confectionery feat to make his treats...

Well if you've ever looked at the ingredients, there's no short supply of them in Stormreach...

All I know is I think I want him in my party because he must be a kick ass player to generate enough XP to do all that crafting.

I just want to thank all the players who have dutifully carted chopped up bits of Xyzzy from the Subterrane for all those cookies... good work everyone...

XP is cheap in Stormreach. Have you run the Shroud? One run through there is likely to set up up for a long time.

Well, I wasn't supposed to tell... but I heard a rumor that Cupcake was hired to help keep up with demand. ;)

I wish there was something on going especially for lowbie chests. I found myself already missing the coins last night while leveling a lowbie. Just no excitement in opening most chests anymore unless you get to some upper quests or are a new player just starting out. Just one piece of masterwork gear after another. Would be nice for even a small chance for something fun.

lumps of coal you gave my paladin for SILVER coins. When you come back next year, she will be in a station of high respect, and will have access to ALL beings' records.

You'd better be nice the rest of the year jester, because she's making you the first one in her inquisition.

Oh yeah, none of my pc's got any unique items, but grats to those who did.

'Gasp'.
Mmm tables, charts.
Great job on the breakdown.
I have asked repeatedly about the 'special' items returned for gold coins. With no real response.
That's so cool to 'see'hear of a time with it working. I've wondered and asked about the variety, and chances of that happening. Coal and twigs actually have a use??!? ;) I have some saved from last year, because I'm compulsive. I knew the coal could be thrown. But, to now KNOW that gold coins are worth more than some cake or cookie(although I <3 the Rez cakes). I still am curious about the types of things available. Too have conformation is really really nice. I will be even more uptight about turning in my remaining one.

They should have used that wording instead of "floating puzzles."

In the Harbor and Marketplace you could climb a ladder and not have to do the jumping challenge.

But then, you already knew this and you were just posting the obvious.;)
