Achoo! Looks like there’s a new tournament.

Last week I asked the kingdom the important question: which season is worse? In the spirit of the holiday, I had two seregan assistants to help me. The results are in…


The Spring Seregan reminded us all that while the return of life is a beautiful thing, it is also a cursed thing - for my sinuses. Remember folks, don’t take your allergy meds as needed (unless told by a doctor) - it’s every. single. day!

Our next contenders are also quite smelly. But like, in a super fancy way. It seems there’s been a lot of debate between Acitians about two popular perfumes - Celestial Perfume and Macabre Perfume - and, of course, which one is better. The debate has gotten quite heated several times, and many MeTube famous users have had long-time friendships end over it.

I personally couldn’t afford either of them unless I sold an organ or two on the black market. Even so, I know which one I’d pick. What about you, Acitians? Which perfume do you think is worthy of the title The Best?

It is with a heavy heart that I must announce the end of the Firebird Festival. We seregans must return to our homes, as close or as far as they may be. But do not weep, dear Acitians! We will return once more next year. Until then, stay safe, laugh often, and enjoy yourselves at every possible moment!

Before I leave, that sweet little ferro, @Tinker+, asked me to let you all know that the Seregan Plushie set will be restocking in their shop for the entirety of the year!

Seregan Plushie, Dark Seregan Plushie, Earth Seregan Plushie, Fire Seregan Plushie, Ice Seregan Plushie, Light Seregan Plushie, Lovey Dovey Seregan Plushie, Voltage Seregan Plushie, Water Seregan Plushie, and Wind Plushie

I was also told by your game wardens that the carp that showed up in your lake spawned in great numbers, so it seems they will be available year-round! As a result, Giueseppe will continue offering to teach cooks how to make Steamed Carp.

Moreover, I have helped your archivists add the Firebird Festival holiday page to your encyclopedia!

Until we meet again. Farewell!

Holy smokes, what a crazy and exciting week it has been! The Firebird Festival has come to end, but please don’t be sad. Our awesome feathered friends will be back again next year to celebrate with us once more. This week we will pay a visit to my friend @Finneous+ and see what he has going on at the Boutique con Carne. Do you think you have what it takes to get through this Enigma with a glorious reward or will you fall into my trap? Good luck, everyone!

I am astonished by how many people I stumped with this one! I guess this was a lot harder than I intended. I am sorry! As with the last Enigma, there were a couple of ways to solve it but for those that I did manage to confuse, here’s how to easiest way to solve this puzzle.

First off, think of the sparkler as a flat 2D object rather than a 3D one. Cutting and unrolling the cardboard tube from a roll of paper towels will give a 2D representation of what this would look like.

Convert the inches to centimeters for the total length of the sparkler. 15.748 inches = 40 centimeters

6/8 of length of the total length of the sparkler is 30 centimeters. This is the portion of the wooden base that is covered by the explosive cord.

The space between each coil can be figured out by 30 cm total space / 10 coils within the space; 3 cm.

Using the Pythagorean Theorem; we will be able to solve for how long 1 coil is or C in the above diagram. From above we know: A = 4 cm [diameter of the sparkler] and B = 3 cm

10 coils per sparkler = 50 cm of explosive coil needed per sparkler

1250 centimeters of explosive cord is needed to make the entire box of Seregan Sparklers.

15 people participated and 0 got it correct

I have an honorable mention to @Charles as their guess of 3141.593; was the closest.

Holy smokes, there’s a new tournament! No pictures, please.

The results are in and Internetizens (get it? Denizens of the Internet) voted overwhelmingly in favor of Zanris, Bernadette’s current beau. “Even Fiyero is over this,” commented one user. But most importantly, Acitians, Bernadette is happy with Zanris, so we should be happy for her!

Neither Bernadette or Fiyero could be reached for comment, but Zanris’ rep let us know that the Zan Man is happy so many people apparently approve of his and Bernadette’s relationship, and that they should all swing by Club Diamond sometime!

Spring is in full swing and I couldn’t be itchier-- I mean, happier. With it has come many feathered friends to celebrate a new year, and I’m sure I speak for everyone when I say we couldn’t be happier to have them! But if there’s one thing I hate about spring, it’s the fact that summer will soon follow. Excessive heat, sunburns, obnoxious people at the beach - bleh, could it get any worse?

I enlisted the help of two seregans, a Spring Seregan and a Summer Seregan, to help me figure out which season is worse. What do you think, Acitius Kingdom?

Happy New Year

You all worked very quickly at solving last week’s puzzle! I expected nothing less from my fellow Acitians. I hope it was enough to shake the cobwebs loose as this week’s one should prove to be more challenging! In honor of the on-going Firebird Festival, this Enigma is dedicated to our visiting feathered friends. I want to give a special thanks to @Qiao+ for taking the time to meet with me and for sharing their knowledge of the festival and the infamous Seregan Sparklers!

The correct answer to last week’s Enigma was 21. There are a couple of ways to go about solving this; however, I think the best and probably the most used approach was to figure out each problem individually starting with the two Cubed Xlime. The only possible solution to this equation was 6. From there you could replace all the Cubed Xlimes with the number 6 and derive all of the other numbers; thus solving the Enigma.

Firebird Festival

Greetings, Acitius Kingdom! The cold, icy days are over and spring is upon us in full force. With the changing of the seasons comes new life, and as always, we seregans have returned once more to welcome another year full of endless possibilities, love, and laughter. How time flies, hm? Why, it feels like it was just yesterday that we were celebrating the Firebird Festival!

In honor of the festival, seregan will be adoptable in any number all week long!

I am honored to be the one to announce that the seregan species has had its art entirely updated!

Additionally, there is one new enchantment:

But that's not all, oh no, no, no! This year, we seregan have brought an abundance of items with us to share with you all. For a limited time, of course.

Baijiu, Baozi, Cashew Chicken, Gyoza, Spring Rolls, Zongzi

Boris is now selling this baked treat by the dozen:

Sun Cake

At Bound to Please, you'll be able to find the following books:

I've also been told by local fishermen that two new fish have been seen around your lake:

(I heard one of them absolutely loves bread)

Happy New Year, Acitius Kingdom!

Rise and shine, there’s a new tournament!

Last week we were asking the hard questions: is it better to be your own dream come true, or to be as plain and basic as everyone else you know?

In a surprising turn of events, the Default Potion crushed its competition. Literally. It broke the Phantasm Dust, and uh, let’s just say I didn’t know that was what’s inside of those cool bottles.

Please don’t make me talk about it.

Our next challengers have been creating quite a stir in the celeb-o-sphere (I just made that word up - nice, right?) after up and coming entrepreneur and Club Diamond owner Zanris confirmed in a recent interview that he’s dating Colosseum hot shot and lemonade mogul Bernadette. Rumors had been circulating for months when the two were caught by paparazzi outside of Demartio’s on more than one occasion, and now it seems those who still hoped she and Fiyero would get back together are unequivocally crushed and filled with despair at the news.

Some angry shippers (as some famous interweb people have called them) have taken to the comment section in various articles and celebrity gossip sites to reject Bernadette’s choice - and others have come in defense of her innocent relationship with Zanris. What do you think, Acitius? Does Bernadette need to rethink her choice in a man or do we all need to get our noses out of her love life and let her live?
