Ongoing Lore Event 2020 - A Tale of the Past, a future's prophecy
Starting on March 12, 2020, the first in a series of eight images was posted to Reddit and to Discord (in plain text) by the developer. Originally the majority of the text was missing, however more was revealed with each new post, until on April 21, 2020, the final completed version was shared. The meaning behind the text is currently unknown, although the developer has hinted that it will be tied into new game content.
Long ago when the world was young there were 4 Gods. Each tasked to do their part in shaping the world. Working together with each other they sought to maintain the balance the world needed. As time went on, so did the complexity in their positions grew. Small quarrels turned to arguments, arguments turned to hate and not too soon after war was on the horizon. And so they went their separate ways.
With hostility growing between the Gods so did their ignorance towards the rest not wanting to partake in the war. Malcs, the leader of the lesser dragons at that time begins devising a plan. While not as strong as the Gods they knew something had to be done.
Recognizing that they could not defeat them they could instead seal them. Willingly they would sacrifice themselves in the process of creating a powerful seal under their leader. But it took a huge toll. Almost all perish in the end to complete the seal, but it works, with Malcs now a saviour in the eyes of others. Knowing that if he were defeated it would mean the end. And so he leaves in grief, exiling himself for an eternity.
In the long centuries that pass so does the creep of age affect Malcs, a long time has passed. One day adventurers unknowingly discover his location. Not knowing who he was, Malcs was treated like another trophy to get, and so he was targeted. Countless adventurers from all over took up this opportunity and so he fought, for years...until he no longer could. The seals break and in doing so 4 beacons of light strike up towards the sky with a vicious roar: Radiant Silver, Soft Blue, Mossy Green and Burning Red.
Rumors of mysterious colossal dungeons appearing at the origins of these light start to spread. The Gods prepare for their return. With you at the centre of this now, what will you do?
Aeris - The Air God, April 22, 2020.
Radiant Silver, wings of bountiful colors. Aeris is known as the Loving God. Given the power of flight she travelled the world radiating her love and beauty towards all the populace of Melvor. In the eyes of the people she was a beacon of hope and a symbol of peace in which the gods upheld. When trouble arose she would always be there as if a guardian was always watching over. During the early times she would often meet with the other gods to discuss the role she would play, however she considered only one a good friend. Over the many years that had passed her tireless effort had left her exhausted. "It's always the same." she cried. With all her effort she truly believed she was doing good. But the world is cruel and ever changing. Was she really ever needed? she thought. Upset and no longer wanting to feel this way she decides to exact the opposite of what she stood for. And so in the end the once loving god of Melvor becomes the recluse. Leaving the people to fend for themselves. "I wonder, what does all this power amount to when its no longer there, what do the people do when the hero leaves?"
Glacia - The Water God, April 25, 2020.
Soft Blue, a cold heart. Glacia is known as the Helping God. While managing the oceans and seas she would guide lost voyagers who had gone astray to safety. The explorers of Melvor called her the Ocean's Spirit, for when she was happy the oceans were calm and when she was not the waves echoed it. The role she played was not something she wanted to do, but she knew it was her duty to maintain. Her true dream was to be free above the clouds like Aeris. Being tied to the oceans it was the only thing that was ever on her mind. However the burden of not being able to lied deep within her heart. Despite knowing she was shackled she would still try time and time again but fail. To always see Aeris soar away after their meeting was enough to break her. And as time went by her growing bitterness towards her role eventually escalated to hatred when Aeris decided she would no longer fulfil her role anymore. Having clung to this dream for so long and seeing someone squander it was outrageous to her. And so they argued and argued for even longer until only what was left was nothing but pain behind her eyes. And after all these years it had already consumed her inner self. "Do you pity those who use their power for everyone else knowing they can never help themselves? they are the ones who tread the line between a blessing and curse."

April Fools Event 2020 - ArChAeOloGy
The ArChAeOloGy event was added for April Fools 2020 and allowed the player to scratch a tile to reveal a "prize". Sometimes the tile would reveal a joke, "Nothing LOL" for experience, or the image of an item, which awarded the item. The experience earned was equal to 50 times ArChAeOloGy level when scratching "Nothing LOL". It took approximately 15 hours to reach level 99, which when reached gave the player nothing. The item drop rates in order of rarity were: Lemon, Herb Sack, Bird Nest, Mastery tokens, Black Platebody and Ancient Wizard Boots.
Easter Event 2020 - Flappy Golbin
The Easter Event ran from the 10th to the 14th of April, 2020. The event added a "Flappy Golbin" mini-game, which is a reskin of the 2013 classic Flappy Bird. Flappy Golbin has three difficulty levels, Easy, Normal, and Hard. Easy has a wide gap between logs to pass through and awards 1 point per log passed. Normal has a smaller gap to pass through and awards 2 points per log passed. Hard has logs which move up and down, awarding 4 points per log passed. The player's high score for each difficulty is displayed on the event page.
The player's score each game in Flappy Golbin is converted to "Eggs" for the player, which is a currency that could be used to purchase items from the Easter Shop.
