With the help of all of the residents of Nestor's World, the gate has been completed and Lulu is free to come and go between the two planets. Lulu can be found circling and playing around the gate, and offers their blessings to all those who wish for them.

A loud WHOOSH and crackle echoes throughout the entirety of Nestor's Wood as the second gate snaps open beneath Crescent Lake. Nessie and the nearby not-cats stare quietly, awaiting Nestor's cue that perhaps the efforts have worked.

The water around where Nestor is standing ripples and a large moose-y nose pokes out from under the water.

"Oh! Well look at this!" Lulu sings. "So this is where you have all been hiding for the last ten years! We're going to be able to play so many games together here now that I can join you."


fish1 Lulu is Back! And your Rewards are Here!

Lulu has been returned to Not-Earth as the second gate has opened up in Crescent Lake. As thanks for all the hard work last week, two copies of the beta reward clothing/decor and one copy of the soup of the sea have been deposited into your inventories.

Speaking of inventories, there were precisely 20k total users when the site went down! What are the chances of us hitting such a very specific and pleasant number at precisely the end of beta.

glitter Merkitties are here!

The mercat species is now available in game. Everyone has received one free Soup of the Sea (transformation specialty item), and additional soups are available at Lulu's Gate, set up as a "shop" in Crescent Pier (available as an option under the shops page) for 100 essence fragments. You can also get a Stew of the Land if you want to turn a mercat back into a not-cat.

specialStew of the Land


There is still some glitchiness around the cat sandbox, but otherwise mercats appear to be fully functional.

A note about mercat acquisition: Mercats are an outlier species in that they are available through a transformation item only. The vast majority of future species will be primarily acquired through in-game means, such as future city business cards and the meeting grounds. Mercats are different because they are the premium item.

The mercat transformation item has been added to Nestor's pool, though it is going to be really rare. I've got another in-game spot I'd like to put these, but it'll be some time before I can get that rolling.

goldgift The Accent Color Gene

Mercats (and some other future species) make use of an additional color gene, called the accent color gene. More information about this is available in the Other Species tutorial. There are 4 different letters, and each combines into 10 different accent colors.

A preview of all tail colors is included below:

panic This Update was Kind of a Miracle

Apologies for how distant and behind I've been all last week. As it turns out, the universe kind of had it out for me. My computer started dying on Tuesday and entered a state where it couldn't be on for more than 5 minutes at a time without blue screening. It took me a few days to get it so it could turn on for a longer period of time, but everything continued to unravel as it slowly lost track of all the rest of its hardware, ending in this scene I'd like you to imagine in your mind:

(Moderator) Remus and I, yesterday afternoon, having just taken the bus over to purchase a new laptop from a Target of all places because they happened to have one I wanted, wheeling it around the Grocery Store in the front seat like a child while we walk out with our arms full of ears of corn (it was 5 for $1 so we had to).

And then of course I lost power last night and was worried I would not even be able to get this update to you on time (fortunately and miraculously it came back in time for me to get all my files moved and everything re-set up so I could give you this update).

Anyway, I am still behind and probably will be for a little while, given the circumstances.

noodle2 Other Changes

- To reduce data bloat, queue tickets and images now are deleted. Cancelled queue submissions are deleted after 14 days and revise-resubmit and rejected queue submissions are deleted after 60 days. Approved submissions stay indefinitely at the moment.

- I hope I haven't forgotten anything in this update, but things should be mostly set to go since all of the mercat back-end was implemented last week and we worked out all of the bugs related to that. There are a few places where I locked certain information behind the admin log-in, so if something mercat-related looks missing, please let me know and I'll look into fixing it!

tea What's next?

There were some small things I didn't get done in time for this update which will be slid into the next one. These include:

- A permanent note on the front page about when the next registration window will be
- The forum migration / search
- Collectable page redesign (to distinguish event from easily available)
