Greetings! I am a Goblin; everyone calls me Boblin. It is approaching the Winter season and it is a fitting time to introduce the story of Elvenezer Scratch and the three ghosts of Winter. Elvenezer is an old but rich Yeti who has spent his life producing (he would say) Elvenar's finest Elvenade. From a young age, and with his partner and only friend, Yecob Marlow, he has made his fortune selling Elvenade throughout the land. However, Elvenezer is a cold-hearted and distictly unlikeable Yeti. Profit and wealth are his only ambitions. Does he care?
My story begins...After the tragic loss of his partner Yecob in a factory accident, he became the sole owner of the factory. He was now very rich! He continued to produce and sell his famous Elvenade but his cold-hearted nature grew stronger. Those who knew him avoided him at all costs.
Decades later, strange events were to unfold. Late one night, an apparition appeared before Elvenzer: the ghost of his friend, Yecob Marlow. Yecob rebuked Elvenezer for the way he had spent his life and warned of the visits of three ghosts...
Follow my story throughout the Event and, hey, win many great prizes along the way.
In this event you will play a quest line that is divided into two consecutive sections, a story part and a bonus round that will let you finish endless quests. Each completed quest will give you Red Ribbons as rewards. Red Ribbons are automatically added to your Event Menu. These allow you to open different Gift Boxes to win unique and precious rewards, including the Daily Prizes! All Gift Boxes also contain a Candy Hammer , which you will need to build your Gingerbread House and win Grand Prizes.
By clicking the Event Menu icon you will access the Event Window which will give you plenty of information and allow you use your Red Ribbons and Candy Hammers:

You start the Winter Magic Event with 50 Red Ribbons and every Event Quest gives you more when completed. Use these Red Ribbons to open Gift Boxes. From time to time, you will find more Red Ribbons dotted around your city for you to collect.
Use the Red Ribbons to open one of the 16 Gift Boxes and gain many attractive and useful rewards.
Don't forget to also check your Mystical Object in the Magic Academy's Crafting tab. There will be a chance to gain even more Red Ribbons by completing Mystical Objects.
At the start of each day, you will be presented with a new selection of Gifts. To give you an idea of what you can win, the rewards are visible at first but you must "Shuffle" them before you can claim any. The rewards will then be mixed up and placed in Gift Boxes.
Use you Red Ribbons to open a Gift Box. Each one will give you a Candy Hammer plus one of many different rewards like the Daily Prize, Instants, Knowledge Points, Rune Shards, special Buildings or more Red Ribbons.
There are 3 Special Rewards within the Gift Boxes.
With the Candy Hammers you are able to construct your Gingerbread House. To use your Candy Hammers, click the button:
This will use 1 Candy Hammer and give you up to 3 Gingerbread Bricks for your House:
Once 20 Gingerbread Bricks are in place, you have a completed the House and you will receive the current Grand Prize.
Collect your Grand Prize and your Gingerbread House will clear so you can begin to use your Candy Hammers to construct it over again.
|Please note: All building values and effects depend on the chapter you are in at the time you add the buildings to your Inventory.|
