    Get ready to feel the heat!

    The Scorched Sky Celebration is back and within the flames, all mettle is tempered—that which is weak, distracting, and fleeting is burned away leaving only the strong, pure, and resilient! Join us in lifting up the Tyrant of Fire and the Burning Prince, and you too will know the cleansing intensity of Fire.

    The devotees of Flame, worshipers of Fennin Ro and his son, Solusek Ro, can once again be found across Norrath celebrating their gods during the celebration. They offer a chance for all to rejoice in the primal power of Fire and Flame, with no grudge towards those who have embraced other deities.

    If you wish to perform a task as part of the festival, speak with Limora Roamhill in Darklight Wood, or Estmund Vynaan in Lavastorm. They would be thankful for any assistance. The festivities begin Friday, June 25, 2021 at 12:01 a.m. PDT, and end Thursday, July 8, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. PDT.

    I love Scorched Sky! Is it that time of year already again? And so fitting for Florida months of June-July when it begins that you can't even venture outside due to the heat & humidity not to mention the thunderstorms since summer is our rainy season also. But what I love about Florida is that 45 minutes ago it was a sky drenching pouring down rain, wind booming thunderclap storm and now the puddles are already drying in the hot sun that's come out to play again! No extended rainy days around here; what a drag that would be ~ so depressing!

    Anyway I'd like to get my Human Paladin Fyrelilly Wynde the title of The Scorched .. she already has a fiery glow around her that I somehow found. I think her mount of a flaming griffon will remain better than the fiery mount I see pictured here but my Ogre Fury Gorralok Grymm would probably like to ride that mount. Can't wait for the 2 days until Scorched Sky begins!

    I can...here in southern California, it's Fire Season in RL... X-P

    And frankly, I could go the rest of my life without humidity (I know, I know, but you don't get a lot of fires in a cactus desert ;->), but a nice, dry, baking heat, now... :D

    who's also testing Tinkerfest right now, too...it's exhausting sometimes, being on Public Test ;->

    Yes, thank you, Accendo! It's extra nice to get the write-up a couple of days ahead of time - that gives me more time to get my ducks in a row and my event trackers, shopping lists, etc. updated and ready to roll before the event starts. Thank you!

    And thanks as always to DenMum and Ocarinah for their information and presentation, respectively. Very much appreciated!

    Ducks ???? hmmmmmm I love roasted duck .
    I think last year we got some kebabs for Scorched Sky .
    Argh now I am really hungry.

    Sounds like a cool, wait, hot? event! I've never participated in one since I had a long hiatus from the game. It'll be good to see this one! Thanks!

    Well, Scorched Sky itself is a relatively new holiday; it's based loosely on the old Summer Fireworks thing, but since I think only the U.S. and France light off a ton of fireworks during the summer (July 4th for us, July 14th for France), it wasn't terribly "international." Grounding it more as a thing for Norrathians helps make it a better "local" holiday, I think, and they expanded the theme considerably by tying it into our pantheon (more house items! :D). :)

    Is it 100% bonus to adventure only or is TS xp included?
  12. Schmetterling Well-Known Member

    Why is the entrance to the instance required for " Feats of Burning Devotion " in Sinking Sands is blocked on Kaladim ?

    we did overland heroic after midnight with new quests picked up after midnight and we are members and got 24 coins
    base is 12- we should have got 36 at least or 48 but not 24

    please grant the missing coins retroactively and beware that the double ethereal event may not be active yet until dev interaction when they are back at work in san diego
  14. Rondo New Member

    I did a Weekly Solo and got 12 coins (6 and 6 for being a member) doesn't look like i got the "All throughout the celebration, enjoy double Ethereal rewards as well as double experience gains."

    Why druzzil and zerani dont have their own day? More zerani she isnt the goddess of hearth?
  16. WhysperWynde Well-Known Member

    Wow Schmetterling, thanx for the heads up! I SHALL get the fiery mount then in addition to the Title of "The Scorched!" I didn't realize it had a fiery glow around it or could fly. Yes that will match nicely the warm, cackley glow fires that Fyrelilly has when I have her standing alone not mounted on her fiery griffon mount.

    And now I've got to find her a fiery disguise, because on Sundays is my Visiting Day to others' decorated houses to rate as well as my day that all of my 20 gals don disguises .. so does anyone know of a fire gollum or otherwise flaming disguise a character can put on and wear when the Hide My Illusion Form box in Character Options is unchecked?

    Well, Solusek Ro is a confirmed deity...on the other hand, Prexus (much as I would love him to be) isn't, so hopefully he'll be the next one to "return" to be worshiped? At least he's a major deity... ;)

    Maybe they should've based Oceansfull on Karana; that way, it'd make sense that all the holidays are for returned deities so far.

    (And the folks on Public Test are exhausted anyway with the holidays piling up; we have Erollisi Day for January, then Brewday for February, then Bristlebane's starting for us in March and going on through part of April for our Live server toons -- hmm, nothing really for May, but who would be for then? -- then Oceansfull for June, Scorched Sky for July, Tinkerfest for August, then -- hmm, nothing really for September, then Nights of the Dead for October, then Heroes' Fest for November, then Frostfell for December? Dang it, Dusano, give us a break! :p)
