Teal Fireworks Laden Horse and Supergirl Launching



Well, well… I hadn’t spent much time at the 6th Anniversary Party because there was nothing new to get other than the Reveller’s Warsteed appearance (revellers-gilded-warsteed). However, yesterday, the Anniversary Party was extended until May 6 and new items were made available for bartering. The top billing on my radar was the Teal Fireworks Laden Horse!

There are also some new goodies that are modifications of similar goodies from last year that match this teal horse, including a cloak (5 tokens), another you-in-a-box outfit (10 tokens), a teal firework backpack (7 tokens), and a cake hat (10 tokens). I will go snatch them up tonight and give them to the lildanas to wear. To see previews of the cosmetics, go to CSTM (CSTM~new-anniversary-rewards) .

For now, on to the Horse!

The Teal Fireworks Laden Horse is a typical +62% speed horse with 200 morale, and is very much like the Fireworks Laden Horse (All the Steeds (special-steeds-62)). When bartering for him at the Games-Master, he is called the Teal Fireworks Laden Steed. I have no idea why these name discrepancies happen, but there he is. Here are a few pictures.

The new fancy horse and I go to visit my friend Elrond in Rivendell.

Ok, so Supergirl Red and Blue clashes a little with the horse’s green and purple. What I noticed when I headed back to the Moors was that the standard moors green outfit complements it really well!

We watch the Blood Moon rise in the moors tonight… a confrontation is coming…


Launching Beer Patrons
Since we had spent little time Partying this year, the lildanas were short on anniversary tokens and couldn’t instantly get the horse so off they went to Thorin’s Hall Beer Brawl. The beer brawl can be a lot of fun, especially when played with people who are trying to have a good time and not bent on spoiling the time of others. Thankfully, the lildanas found some like minded folks there last night in Tilley, Merdo, Dropsey, and Degenerate.

Danadelion got a few good launches, but I wonder if the big launches have been removed?  Also, I notice that outside the arena, there are no emotes allowed, because “it is serious business”.

In previous years, emotes were allowed over near Gisli, the Games-Master. Tilley pointed out that emotes are still allowed on the sides of the arena. Good to know! I had to scroll back to the 4th Anniversary Party to find some dancing pictures on Gisli’s platform. I knew I remembered it not being verboten before! :)

Some Launch Shots remembered!
I mentioned that big launches that were coordinated by a team were able to be executed in previous festivals. I didn’t notice anyone ever really being hit high in the brief time I was at this festival this year. I did promise pictures of previous festivals… because it did happen, lol! This next set is a time when I was hanging out with Superfriends at the 4th Anniversary party

Up, up, and away…

 Up, over the Dwarf statue…

Pressed against the ceiling… I wonder how high I would have gone if the ceiling hadn’t stopped me?

Over the dwarf’s head, off the ceiling, flying out of the room…

From ground launch… 

See the shadow rising as I approach the ceiling?

Over the dwarf’s head…

I also got to practice smacking others, I can’t have all the fun, hehe. Here is Aerlinneth having just dodged the dwarf head…

Kalamari exhibits a sonic boom effect as she rockets toward the sky…

And, I always got a chuckle seeing this picture of Lynrieth. She launched so quickly and so high that I nearly lost all visual on her; I caught this shot of her foot just at the top of the image.

Good times. Good times. May your Festival be high-flying fun!

I've only done this once; maybe I should give it a shot. Still ten token til I earn that new horse...

Danania Darzil said...

Oh yes, Cennwyn.

The beer brawl can be a lot of fun, and certainly there is great opportunity to earn tokens toward the horse. I would have to reread CSTM's festival guide, but I think the beer brawl is probably the fastest way to get tokens (3 tokens per round, each cycle is like 5 to 9 mins).

I am confident you will have enough for your horse in no time. :D

I'm not 100% sure, but I spent a little time doing the Beer Fight last weekend, and I noticed now and then an 'Immune' floting text. I'm guessing this is the cause of those missing "super launches". It certainly has decreased the chances of being knocked out of the arena as long as you are hit while standing far from the edges.

I love the outfit you are wearing on the horse. The second one, that it (green one). What are all the items?

Danania Darzil said...

Hey Korthe!
Not saying that you are right or wrong, but you can see the stack of "Immune" scrolling up in picture fly6 & fly7 above. I have no idea to what that is referring as it, at least used to, not be slowing down the upward acceleration when the hits were timied simultaneously. :)

You are right though in that something seems like the bash might be different now. If so, this set of flying pictures might be even more unique than I first realized.

Thanks Anonymous, the Green outfit above is the Runekeeper Moors gear for level 85. All sets (heal, fire, lightning) look identical. I'll look up the names and get back to you.

@ Danania: Oh, you are right about the 'Immune' text, I hadn't realized that wasn't new. Then I don't know. I've not spent more time at the Beer Brawl - the downtime between rounds is a bit boring, especially now that emotes cannot be used - but I've not witnessed a "super launch" this year, that's for sure, even when someone was hitted twice at the same time.
