New Winter-Exclusive Items

New plants are appearing at the gardener, farmer, and herbalist occupations! Your cats can soon begin harvesting, wearing, and decorating with Not-Holly, Forget-me-not, Crocus, Goldenseal, Snow Peas, and Snowmeowtoes.

These new winter flowers will be used for an upcoming series of "Winter-dyed" clothes and paintings.

Kitten Toys!

So, yesterday I added the worms off the string to Nestor's very rare pool under the assumption that this would make them long-term obtainable (and not April Fools exclusive), but somewhat rare. The thing is, I forgot Tiny Adventurers pull from Nestor's pool, but can only bring back trinkets and resources (not apparel or decor). Since there aren't many trinkets, this means that the babies had found my secret worm stash and were raiding it at quite high rates.... To compensate, I'm adding a large drop of Nestor/other trinkets, so that the babies have a larger selection of things to find and play with.

The following 29 new toys have been added. These will be very rarely given out by Nestor, brought back on a regular basis by tiny adventurers, and I'm adding some of them here and there as rare scenario or letter drops:

trinketsLeathery Feathery Ball
trinketsLeather Rainbow Ball
trinketsDried Rice Rattlers
trinketsEvil Beanigator

Other New Items

The following items are currently unobtainable, but needed to be added for adventuring development:

specialDenim Traveler's Pack
specialEmerald Explorer's Pack
specialGold Adventurer's Pack
specialBurgundy Hero's Pack

Gatherers can now rarely bring back the following Winter-exclusive resource:

resourcesFallen Meteorite

You can now craft the following winter healing item equivalent (for adventuring) at the apothecary:

gearWintermint Tea

Note about the apothecary: Currently there is not a winter recolor, but I do plan to add one before adventuring appears so that you can still craft healing items and such.

New Luncheon Recipes

Eight new delicious recipes have been added to the luncheon. From left to right: Snowpea Stir Fry, Eggs on Toast, Fish and Chips, Cheese Pizza, Fresh Winter Salad, Spicy Snowmeowto Chili, Crispy Fried Fowl, and Three-Layered Cake.

- Level 3 experience required count has been corrected on cat profiles
