An all-new summer event has arrived for all to partake in!
This event runs until July 31st, 2022 23:59:59 EST
To see everything available for the season of Áthlympians, make sure to visit the event hub!
New Realm - Áthlima
A brand new realm has opened its doors for all who wish to enter! The Realm of Áthlima is now yours to discover, with the appropriate realm key of course…
New Companion Species - Skeye
Skeye are an avian-like species found only in the realm of Áthlima, where it is an ancient tradition to keep and train them. Thought to be distantly related to Chime Fish, these small metal creatures make a melodic whistling noise as air passes through their hollow heads during flight. This inspired the residents of Áthlima to train Skeye to be the referees for all their sports games, as they have excellent vision and can make loud whistling noises if they spot any foul plays or cheating.
Collect materials to make their lure and build up your familiarity with Áthlima to take one home!
(Skeye created by Cakebird and Raishiteru!)
This year, Aegeus is challenging all who are willing to partake in his 9 sports-themed prompts! Completing these will award you with unique prizes including the coveted Athlympian achievement!
Aegeus, a friendly Pygmy Jackyl, is the deity of athletes and sports. While his small stature and cute looks often result in him being underestimated, it is said he became the deity of Áthlima by beating his rival Pyrros – an infamously athletic Chuikha – in a one-thousand-mile race across the lands of the realm over a hundred years ago. Today, you can find him and his trusty companion, Nephele, teaching Lythians how to play many different sports over at the Stadium.
Completing each prompt gives you a sticker unique to that prompt’s sport!
Completing all 9 prompts gives you the “Athlympian” achievement and a special frame!
Along with Aegeus’s assignments, 12 vacation-themed prompts will also be available for those of us who would rather kick back, or need some chill time from all the athletics.
Completing at least one prompt gives you the “Summer Fun” achievement!
Completing all twelve prompts gives you an MYO Playable Species ticket!
Pyrros, a hotheaded Chuikha and Aegeus's long-time rival, has set up shop for those looking to take a piece of Áthlima home with them! However, unlike most other realms, the currency here is a bit different. All items here cost Daiko, the Áthlimian currency! You can get your hands on some Daiko by submitting art for any event prompt or Áthlima realm familiarity/general quests just like you would Loonoles.
Please include only one prompt per submission to ensure you receive your rewards!
Volleyball and Áthlimian Shelter Pets
Until July 31st, 2022 23:59:59 EST, you can visit the profiles of other members to start a game of volleyball with them! Like any game of volleyball, the goal is to keep the ball above the (inter)net between you and your friend. When you toss a volleyball, the user you serve it to will have the opportunity to hit it back, and vice versa. Every time you serve a Volleyball or pass one back, you’ll get a gift, and your Volleyball streak will increase by 1 with that person! If you manage to hit a streak of 10 with any individual on-site, you'll get the special “Ballin’” achievement.
Just remember, you can only serve or hit 5 times a day, so pick who you want to increase your streak with carefully!
Treats received from this feature can be used to feed special Athlympian-themed pets that are appearing in the pet shelter, also until July 31st, 2021 23:59:59 EST! You may also find some ingredients for crafting here too!
June is Pride Month!
Along with our pride-themed visual art contest this month, players who choose to join us in the Official Lythbound Discord will get a chance to earn some extra Loonoles and their choice of a Pride shark pet! Some lucky members might even get an RNG-granted Discord exclusive pet…
