Games List


Those who are interested in jousting must first choose which side they will ride for—the Serpent or the Phoenix. They will then don traditional jousting gear, saddle up on their steed of choice, and prepare for battle!

Jousting wins will be tallied toward your faction’s total, and once the event ends, those aligned with the winning side will receive not only bragging rights, but new titles as well!

Fox Hunt

The fox hunt is a quick chase to find the cunning fox. Adventurers have 90 seconds to track down the fox to be awarded currency and other prizes! Finding other fauna in Rumor Woods will also come with rewards!

Transports players to Sylinar's Spire, Courtyard. From there they can travel to the existing Summit Academy which offers player customizations and to the Rumor Woods expansion area that offers the fox hunt, jousting, mounts with customizations, and mount specific gear.

Quest Info


Welcome to Rumor Woods and Summit Academy!

Many changes have come over Summit Academy since last we opened our doors to guests. Mysteriously, Sylinar locked up his spire and moved out, while Diriko of Atan Irith moved in. Her grandson, Siethidi, who is a young equestrian enthusiast, has cut down a large swath of trees in the southeastern sections of the Rumor Woods to create the grounds for a Grand Tourney.

Join the Battle of the Serpent and the Phoenix!

Joust for either side by entering The Lists! Whichever team wins the Tourney will earn bragging rights and new titles.

Summit Academy and its surrounding buildings are open to visitors. Customization Tokens can be purchased from the shop, "What Remains". (You'll need raikhen to buy the tokens. Silver is no good at Rumor Woods.) Be sure to pick up a map of the new expansion area! You can find one at the rumor woods junction on the stump.


Entry to Rumor Woods can be gained by purchasing a marker from the Simucoin store.
