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
Posted by:  Maybelline@

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.

34 people participated and 28 got it correct

Firebird Festival
Posted by:  Qiao+

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.

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?

Get your thinking caps on everyone!
Posted by:  Maybelline@

Hey all! Maybelline here - just wanted to give you a brief little hello and to let you all know that I will be helping out with the enigmas going forward. I will do my best to help keep your minds sharp with my thrilling puzzles and riddles. As it has been a little while since you've had an enigma, my first gift to you is one that is a bit easy to help you get back into weekly brain busters.

For those who are wondering: @Petaline+ walks a whopping 3 miles a day! Which I must say isn't bad at all. I think I need to meet up with her and start walking more everyday.

The chances of @Elite's fruit being a tall, yellow, spiked plant with small leaves, and having a genotype of AabbCcdd was 0.0156.

Congratulations to all that figured these out and thanks again for being so patient with enigma releases! I look forward to stumping you all later on the future enigmas.

New Shop: Club Diamond
Posted by:  Zanris+

What’s uuuuup, Acitius Kingdom?! Got lots of money and nothing to do with it? Talk about first world problems. But I’m here to solve those problems with my shop Club Diamond!

At the Diamond, we only sell the most expensive, most luxurious, most hard to get items - at totally reasonable prices! Since my mom is the heir to the Tipsy Tuskers company, the Diamond is now the sole vendor of all Tipsy Tuskers drinks (sorry ‘bout that, @Jack+!) as a congratulations present for the Diamond’s opening.

I also recently did an interview if you're interested in knowing more about the Zan Man.

Updated Terms of Service, Privacy Policy, Rules, and FAQ!
Posted by:  Brian@

The Terms of Service, Privacy Policy, Rules, and FAQ have all been updated. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with these pages and the updates to these pages! The updates to the Terms of Service and Privacy Policy were minimal, but there are a couple key changes that I want to note in the updated Rules:

• In an effort to standardize rules and also clean up some of the profanity on the site, we are issuing a guideline of PG-13 for content on the site. What constitutes a PG-13 rating? Basically, the working definition for use on the site is a maximum of 2-3 uses of profanity per post (depending on the specific profanity used and other content of the post) and no posting profanity in back-to-back posts. We understand that this is a transition from the former site rules, and we will be issuing reminder mails/unofficial warnings to people who violate this rule. If the users continue to violate it, they may receive an official warning, a mute, or be banned. We understand that the site has a largely older group of users, but we also want to find a balance between allowing profanity within reason and not having excessive profanity on the site. In conjunction with this rule, we will no longer allow pet or user names with profanity in them. These names have been issued a "force change," i.e.: the user will be prompted to change the name before doing anything else on the site.

• In an effort to limit the number of pets per user and also crack down on users using multiple accounts to earn AP, users will be limited to one (1) account going forward. Users who created their side accounts prior to today, May 1, 2017, will be allowed to keep their side accounts. That being said, users have the option to contact me to request an account consolidation. This is a one time service that is free of charge. If you choose to request this service, I will take all of the AP, items, and pets from your side accounts and consolidate them onto your main account. Once this is done, I will ban your side accounts. You will be given credit for the number of pet slots you currently have on your side account(s). For example, if you can hold 16 pets on one side account, 20 on another, and 24 on your main account, your main account will have a total of 60 (16 + 20 + 24) pet slots. Again, side account consolidation is not required, and I am only offering this as a free service for your convenience. Due to expected demand for this service, it might take me a few days to accommodate all of the requests, so please be patient!

• New users going forward will be allowed to have a maximum of 48 pets on their one (1) account. The users will start with 12 pet slots when they create their account. They will then have the option to purchase an additional 4 pet slots from the Crystal Cavern and an additional 32 pet slots from the Webshop.

• In no circumstance will a user be allowed to exceed eighty four (84) pet slots, which is the maximum number of pets currently across three accounts. Eighty four (84) pets can be achieved, currently, through having three accounts (12 base pet slots each), buying 12 additional pet slots on each of those accounts via the Webshop, and buying an additional 4 pet slots on each account from the Crystal Cavern. With the ability to obtain up to 48 pet slots on your main account, please make sure that you do not exceed the 84 pet limit. If you do exceed this limit, your excess slots will be removed and you will be warned.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to comment on this news post. A staff member will respond to all questions, comments, and concerns.
