Possibly a new game that allows for a chance to win prizes based on ice sculptures and how well they are created. Originally announced in the Briarmoon Cove official folder.

Forest Armor

The shop that sells this can only be reached by going through a quest in Kotwynn Forest (Quest information provided here). Forest armor has several tiers to unlock and offers mechanical benefits that only work outdoors. Original posts made in the Briarmoon Cove official folder.

Garli Jewerly

Jewelry items that hold gems found in a pile with a pull for a specified amount of coins. The process is similar to Fusion but works differently. Originally posted in the Briarmooon Cove official folder.

Prestige Champagne

Drink like its 5999 with these fun champagne bottles, teased by GS4-Sindin.

Snowball Satchels

Snowball satchels allow one to gather snowballs and store them for a friendly fight later on. Five fully unlocked satchels will be made available and grant the ability to generate a snowfield once a day to the owner. Initial teaser information can be found here.


A single slot gold ring holder will be given to attendees with special messaging exclusive to Briarmoon Cove which will allow everyone the chance to upgrade it to 2-slots via limited service as mentioned here by GM Galene.

A Letter From The Mayor of Briarmoon Cove

Originally posted in the Briarmoon Cove Official Folder

Prospective Attendees,

At the frigid and blustery mouth of the Olbin River lies our beautiful port city of Briarmoon Cove, cozily nestled among snow-covered craggy cliffs and deep caverns. While easily reached by traders and merchants arriving from the sea, those approaching from the inland trails are met with unforgiving environmental hazards and a harsh, nearly inaccessible terrain, making travel to this area largely unpleasant. Briarmoon Cove has remained a mostly secluded haven for seafaring traders and merchants because of such limited land access... until now!

The Chronomages, having become increasingly interested in merchant trade opportunities within Elanthia, have invested significant efforts and research in devising alternative methods to expand their reaches in goods transportation. Olthos Demache, a Chronomage well-known for his diverse knowledge of time travel and obscure methods to overcome restrictive challenges, sent a brief missive explaining their interest in the aggregation.

"The limitations of terrain and weather severely inhibit the ability to move goods from one town to another, resulting in lost income for that town and its merchants. With our assistance, towns may be eligible to experience and benefit from a vast new system, which we are promoting and scouting for here at Briarmoon Cove. We want to keep our eye on potential locations, so we will be appraising what they have to offer at the festivities of this groundbreaking event."

As the mayor of Briarmoon Cove, and the appointed ambassador for the festival, I welcome you all to join us in celebrating this worldly gathering of artisans. We have brought delegates from all across Elanthia to our seaside retreat, and they will be marketing quintessential offerings from their homelands. Be sure to stop by all of the shops from each represented area, as you will find a vast assortment of commodities, both unique and familiar. Some are even exclusive to Briarmoon Cove.

The residents of our town have been preparing for the much-anticipated arrival of visitors, and attendees will be able to experience such things as stunning coastal views of the night sky, street performers, ice sculpting areas, the Lighthouse Pub (best known for its warming spirits), the traveling airship known as The Revenge, and over twenty exclusive shops with wares from Icemule Trace to Ta'Illistim! We hope to see you all in a little over two weeks.

Briarmoon Cove awaits!

- Isabriel Fain
Mayor of Briarmoon Cove

Admission to Briarmoon Cove

Originally posted by GM Liia on the Officials.

Things will be heating up in the frosty town of Briarmoon Cove! For this event, we're trying something new. Instead of buying a ticket through the box office, anyone who wishes to visit the festival will buy a luminescent silver-gold orb from the Simucoin shop. This item will allow you to be transported via magical portal to the festival venue. Once you enter the portal, the orb will "lock" onto whatever character uses it, so there are no "admit all" options for this event (though it's something we can look into for future events, if the interest is there). 

The cost of the orb will be 3250 Simucoins. Orbs will likely show up in the box office before the event opens, but will not be made available to purchase until opening day. We don't want anyone losing orbs! The orbs will NOT be limited, so there's no need to worry about getting it early.

Thanks to SGM Sleken for his hard work on the new entry mechanics!

Additional information provided by GM Sleken on the Officials.

Just to re-iterate on the original announcement post...The orb locks (attunes) to the character that uses it. 


Q: Can I buy an orb and then give it to someone else?

A: Yes, as long as you haven't used it. 

Q: Could I buy orbs and drop them everywhere?

A: Sure, Mr/Mrs Moneybags. 

Q: Is the orb really only good for one character for this event?

A: Yes, just the one. One is the loneliest...I'll stop.

Q: Would these orbs be good for future runs of this event (if they happen)?

A: No. This event only. Plan accordingly.

Q: Will these orbs work for other events like Ebon Gates's'es?

A: No. 

Q: Does this fix that annoying feature of buying a box office ticket and having to log out and back in to get that ticket to show?

A: Oh yes, it does. It VERY MUCH fixes that issue.
