Development Update - January [Updated]

Happy New Year, Lorfolk!

We're thrilled to kick off 2024 with a slew of new updates, including the Cooking Camp and Farming Festival weekly events and details about our inaugural seasonal event, showcasing the frosty battlefield of Icerun!


Icerun Seasonal Event

A winter's chill is in the air… the Icerun Seasonal event has begun!


Lore:

Rumours speak of a darkness that has touched the most desolate border of Icerun. Elders speak out, recounting old tales from their ancestors. Chaos, the malevolent force that once haunted Loria centuries ago, has resurfaced. No creature is free from his influence, and those that are too slow to escape become possessed, or as the lorwolves call them, "The Consumed." Rally your pack and join the Icerun fight against the first chaotic whispers that threaten to shake Loria to its core. Read about Icerun’s first encounter with The Consumed here.


How the Icerun Seasonal Event works

During the entire month of January, players can earn Icerun Vouchers by completing various activities around the site. These Icerun Vouchers can be spent within the Icerun Seasonal Event Shop.

How to earn Icerun Vouchers

Releasing Wolves

During this event, Icerun Vouchers are rewarded by releasing wolves to help fend off The Consumed along Icerun Borders. Icerun players will also earn double Icerun Vouchers when releasing wolves. Go to any wolf page and click on the Tree symbol to release wolves.


Seasonal Activities

You can locate these Seasonal Activities on your Activity bar by selecting the switch button on the top right, as well as the Icerun Seasonal Page under the Play dropdown. Like daily Activities, more Seasonal Activities will appear on the taskbar after completion.


Seasonal Progress

Completing the above Icerun Seasonal Activities will award points towards your Seasonal Progress to earn rewards and additional tickets. Note: Players may have made some progress in the seasonal event before release, so some seasonal activities may appear completed.
Update 1/7/24: We've updated the number of Icerun vouchers you can earn from your Seasonal Progress. (20 > 200, 35 > 350, 50 > 500, 75 > 750, 100 > 1000)


You can also unlock a Pebble Path upgrade of your Seasonal Progress for 200,000 pebbles to unlock the Epic Icerun 2024 Seasonal Frostbitten Winter Hunter Set. Optional copies can also be bought for Icerun Vouchers. The Winter Hunter Sets will be soft-retired after the event. As of today, our plan is that soft-retired seasonal items will be placed into the Frozen Icerun Cache that will be available for Seasonal Vouchers in future years. We welcome feedback on this information.

Games

Icerun Arena: A PvE version of the site's regular Arena mini-game. Players can fight against 5 packs of The Consumed with no time limit between rounds. Stand above The Consumed and take 1st Place for 5 Seasonal Vouchers. Note: We are aware of the bug with the rewards showing the wrong typo placement rankings. This is a visual bug, however the rewards are correct.


Icerun Trials: A version of the Gauntlet mini-game where players fight consumed enemies. Reorganise your team between rounds to push yourself to the limits. This game differs from the original, however, in that beating and earning rewards for each round can only be done once per seasonal event. How far will you go this season?



New Companions have surfaced in Icerun!

The Crystalapins and Frostspinners have been spotted across Icerun. Collect these Icerun 2024 Seasonal companions available for Icerun Vouchers in the Icerun Seasonal Shop. The Crystalapins and Frostspinners will be soft-retired after the event. As of today, our plan is that soft-retired seasonal items will be placed into the Frozen Icerun Cache that will be available for Seasonal Vouchers in future years. We welcome feedback on this information.


The Consumed are available to recruit

Are your lorwolves hopeful to aid, curious researchers or perhaps… agents of Chaos? No matter their interests, some of the Consumed Companions are willing to join your pack. You can find them every year available for Icerun Vouchers in the Icerun Seasonal Shop. The question now is will you be able to resist the temptation of Chaos that they bring?


Availability:

Icerun Consumed Companions will be available every year in the Icerun Seasonal

General Consumed Companions will be available every Pack Seasonal.


Notice: Consumed Boss and retired variants of the Companions are too powerful to be recruited and will not be available for purchase.


Icerun Apparel

Grateful for your help on the Icerun border, Icerun locals have set up apparel to buy for Icerun Vouchers. Keep warm with the Winter Hunt outfit sets and take a break to celebrate winter activities with a Snowwolf and Poinsettias.


The Poinsettia Garland, Poinsettia Headpiece and Snowwoof will be available in the Icerun Seasonal every year for Icerun Vouchers.

As this is our very first seasonal event, we welcome any and all feedback on how it can be improved in the Suggestion Forums. We aim to continue building upon these seasonal events and site lore as time passes, with more new items and gameplay to enjoy.

Farming

In addition to these new foods and recipes, the Farming Festival is also getting a few updates. Cotton, Leeks, Flax, Turnips, and Potatoes can now be farmed throughout Loria! Seeds for these new crops can be found in the Farming Festival Shop or occasionally in the Mole Market.



Lormusic

In other news, Lorwolf's first official soundtrack is out now! One of JimJim's favorite hobbies is creating music, so over the past year, he and Swell have thrown together a mix of songs to help bring Lorwolf to life. The album contains 14 short songs and is available in-game and on streaming services. The music player (seen at the bottom right of the game's window) can be used to listen to the music while you play. Additional songs are planned as unlockable content in future updates, so stay tuned. Check out our album on Spotify (Opens in new window or tab)!


Discord

In our continuous goal to strengthen and keep our communications and community-building efforts consistent to Lorfolk, we are sad to say that we have some difficult news to share with everyone - on Saturday, January 6th, we will be closing the official Lorwolf Discord server to the public. This was not an easy decision to make, nor one we take lightly, as we've enjoyed watching this community grow and flourish over the years, and Discord has always been a huge part of that. However, over the past few months, the server has outgrown our modest team's ability to manage it effectively. We understand that this news may be incredibly disappointing to some, and while we are deeply sorry for any negative feelings this may cause, we believe it is in the best interest of the development of the site and for our community moving forward. We hope this gives everyone enough time to wrap up any trades and conversations they may have within the server. While the Discord is closing, more focus will be assigned on keeping communications with our community onsite clear and open. With everyone in one place, we aim to foster a stronger bond between our staff, moderators and players.


Thank you all for your feedback across discussions, suggestion threads and Support Tickets. We look forward to the future of Loria hand in hand with our community.

Good luck on the Icerun borders, Lorfolk!

1/3/24 Edit: Due to community feedback and questions, we've updated to include the availability of seasonal items.

1/7/24 Edit:
Battlepass renamed to Seasonal Progress to better reflect feature.
Premium renamed to Pebble Path to better reflect feature.
Updated to offer more clarity on Seasonal Items, more information on item availability, Frozen Icerun Cache, Seasonal Progress and Pebble Path.
Updated Seasonal Progress infographic to reflect changes to Icerun Voucher amount.

Exciting!

I am curious to try out the icerun festival specific arena and gauntlet, and glad to see a bunch of new companions.
However, if there are companions that will not be avalable for purchase, in all fairness they should not be considered a companion and not show up in the companion overview. This is misleading. That being said, I think it would be great if they would be companions. Simply nerf them if they are too powerful to be obtained by users, so that they are no longer too powerful.

Love the new apparel!

I am sad to see the discord go, but I also feel it is moving in the right direction for LW's future. It will be really nice to see the forum become more active!
