Idle Champions: Icewind Dale, Part 3 
Posted in Idle Champions.

The Champions head to Caer Konig to investigate rumors of invisible dwarves pilfering the town. Along the way, they discover at terrifying new threat to Ten-Towns!

Note: you will need to have completed the previous two Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden Adventures, Moose Tracks and Civilization, in order to access these new Adventures.




Dwarven Rumors

We are headed to Caer Konig, to investigate a rumor about invisible dwarves pilfering the town, help the proprietors of the Northern Light Inn, the Shorard Sisters, look for their missing lantern, and get lost in the Rime (again)...
  • Variant: Mimic Perception — Explore a rumor about invisible dwarves in Caer-Konig while a mimic accompanies the party! Only Champions with WIS 13 or higher can be used. One of the Mimic Tavern Items (a Potted Plant) accompanies the party, intent on helping you find the lantern. In each area, the mimic plant gets distracted by something that is either blue, green, or red, thinking it is the lantern. It accidentally grants a buff to the enemies based on which color it's excited about.
    • Blue - Enemies deal 300% additional damage.
    • Green - Enemies' speed is increased by 100%.
    • Red - Gold Find is reduced by 99%.
  • Reach area 300.

Sunblight

Fortune favors the bold, right? The Champions use the teleportation circle and appear in Sunblight Fortress. We encounter a new terrifying threat to Ten-Towns.
  • Variant: Fortress Assault — Learn what you can about the duergar fortress with the strongest among you.
  • Only Champions with STR score of 15 or higher can be used.
  • Reach area 325.


  • See the in-game Change Log for more information, including a full list of changes and fixes included in this update.

    BW2: Generation 13 Pets are Here! 
    Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

    Gotta find 'em all!

    A new selection of critters are now available to be your companions!

    Those weirdly random abandoned eggs scattered all over Bushwhackia have been switched up and all new pets are ready to hatch when you accept the "Find an Egg" quest from Misty. She will also have all the Generation 12 eggs available to purchase for Bush Bucks during the "Find an Egg" quest.


    Other changes to Misty and Hank for Generation 13:

    • Misty will no longer let players abandon Gen 12 pet eggs that they are hatching (they're now too rare). Only current generation pet eggs can be abandoned during hatching. Please note that if you're in the middle of hatching a pet, then that egg will still hatch into whatever pet it would have been before.

    • Generation 12 pet eggs can now be found in Quester's Satchels (with the same limitations as the Generation 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 eggs, which will still be available in satchels as well.)

    • Hank now sells a random assortment of hatched level 1 Generation 13 pets (instead of Generation 12) for Bush Bucks in his pet store.

    PAGAS changes for Generation 13:

    • Generation 13 pet eggs are available to buy with DNA in the PAGAS store, once you have hatched at least five Generation 13 pets. This include 9 unique variations of the new pets.

    • The Pet Progress dialog now includes Generation 13 pets. Another 19 new pets that all players can unlock!

    • There are new PAGAS Pet Progress reward tiers for 700 and 750 unique pets for those avid collectors! A new unique pet named Cort, and 10 more Unique DNA, respectively.

    • You can now also trade down your rarer DNAs by talking to Vincent as choose the ‘I'd like to trade my DNA’ then ‘I'd like to trade DOWN my DNA’ chat options.

    Store Improvement:


    In addition to these new pets, all stores have been improved to show how many of a pet or mount you've owned or the amount of the inventory or ranch item you have when you mouse over the store item image!

    And now, without further ado, the information you've all been waiting for:

    Generation 13 Pets:

    • Wasp
    • Cootie
    • Robo Dwarf
    • Jellyfish
    • Blue Tang
    • Trub
    • Spooky
    • Roach
    • Luna Moth
    • Quokka
