BUN: LampNome, Petnome, Ravenwood Ball, and Latest Happenings (or lackthereof)

Hey, all!

It's been a long, long time since I've sat down and ticked the keys away into this digital journal.  Thanks to my new job and the beginning of summer school (get this, I'm taking a "truncated" class, so not only is a regular class condensed to a summer schedule, but this Political Science course is even shorter than the regular summer classes; think "honors"), I've been crowded with obligations and responsibilities and duties all around, inside AND outside the Spiral.

But, I'm still staying creative and active...  Hexy and I just come up with the nerdiest ideas, eh?  We became curious after doing a lot of lamp runs, noticing some patterns between our various characters.  Her young Level 1 Thaumaturge kept getting gold only, usually under 5.  So, we decided to test out a theory:  the higher level you are, the wider your window for different prizes of various quantities and qualities; the lower level you are, the smaller your opportunity becomes.  However, being Legendary doesn't mean you'll be exempt from receiving "Level 1 loot."  

And thus, the Lampnome Project (not to be taken as professionally as Petnome) was created.  Hopefully through this project, we'll be able to grasp an idea of what certain trends we'll see in all wishes granted by the Genie.

Speaking of the Petnome Project, check this out:


The Petnome Project's BIRTHDAY is coming up,  on Tuesday, July 19th!  

We're gonna celebrate with some AWESOME contests, giving out prizes. courtesy of KingsIsle Entertainment!  We'd like to give the Community some time to prepare for some of these events, so here's what you'll need to do:

1.  Follow @petnome over on Twitter; some events have time-sensitive objectives!
2.  Set your email inbox to ALLOW messages from petnome [at]

Be sure to check out Diary of a Wizard for an exciting event coming up!

Between the Petnome Staff and some close friends, we're creating some "Epic" contests to held within July.  Just for my blog audience, I'll leak a little info...

Think...Olympics...for the mind, body, and spirit...of you...and your pets.

Derby?  Yes.  Puzzles?  Yes.  Lucky drawings?  Absolutely.

Heck, if you've ever made a submission into the Petnome database (before the ability is revealed on our page) and have your name listed on the Pet Page, you've got a chance to win an awesome Promo Pet!  All submissions up to the day of that special drawing will be counted...but remember, we double-check entries vigilantly!  False entries may be subject to disqualification for the entire month!

Because we're still drafting out the rules and dates for these series of events, we aren't making it an entire public announcement, yet.  But, @Petnome will announce more over time, so keep an eye on that feed!


Last, but not least:  Ravenwood Ball.  This Saturday...I can't wait!  Hope to see you there ~ bring your kicking outfit -- Hexy and I have a neat theme going on, so be sure to find us every 10 minutes!

Heading out to catch up on some sleep~  See you in the Spiral!
