Harvest Festival!
Return of the Harvest Goddess

Today's Event > Harvest Festival + BURP War! (Introduction the next Horseman: Famine!)

Once a year, the Harvest Goddess, Serenia, flies through the skies of Lore. As she soars over the war-torn fields, they are revived and restored to their former beauty. All must gather to make an offering of crops and flowers to thank Serenia for her blessings. Those that are fortunate enough to see her should consider themselves blessed to see such a glorious sight...
You can skip the cutscene at anytime.

«Scene: The usual harvest festival scene, outside of the Cider House.»

Kosefira: Helloooo-looo-looo, «You»! You are just in time for my yodeling lesson!
Doofus von Strudel: Go grab a pint of cider at the Cider House! It rules!
«You»: Oh wow-- you must be one of the fabled LEDERHOGLINS!
Doofus von Strudel: That I am! We Lederhoglins like to come out and play this time of year because the cider is sooooo good! Did I mention that this is CIDER?

«The scene zooms in on Kosefira.»

Kosefira: So we decided on a name for this holiday, finally! Festival of the Harvest Goddess was a little too long... Mog-Toberfest sounds like it happens in October...

«The scene zooms out.»

Doofus von Strudel: -- and Autumnival is just plain weird! My fellow Lederhoglins and I really liked Mog-toberfest...*grumbles*
«You»: So what is the name you decided on??
Doofus and Kosefira: HARVEST FESTIVAL!
«You»: ...........
«You»: Let's hold a contest to choose a name next year, mm-kay?
  • BURP War! (Continues below in "Return of the BURPs")
  • Harvest Quest! (Directs you to Harvest Festival 2009)
    Return of the BURPs

    You may skip this cutscene at any time.

    «Scene: Pestilence stands outside Battleon, where a dark portal is opened in the west. The portal is labeled "???" in the dialogue.»

    Pestilence: This action is yours...
    ???: Really? Must we do this again? You know it won't end well... besides, I thought we had averted the necessity of this.
    Pestilence: Only delayed. You have obligations. And recall that it is not only your own strength that the creatures fortify. I, too, require what they provide.
    ???: But must it be now, at my sister's festival? Why can we not maintain the balance as we always have?
    Pestilence: Do not be ridiculous. There is no balance whatsoever if you refuse to do your job. That is not balance. That is handing things over to the other side.
    ???: I notice you are not berating 'him' about the way he does his job...
    Pestilence: You attempts at deflection shall not avail you. Of course it must be now. The impact will be much that much greater by disrupting Serenia's little festival.
    ???: That's what I'm afraid of...
    Pestilence: The vermin are overdue. It is that time starvation and disease again plague the land. If you refuse your role, then we will act in your stead.

    «Famine exits the portal and the scene zooms in on the two Demipowers.»

    Famine: No... No, I will act. There is no need for threats.
    Pestilence: Why are you shifting between forms so much??
    Famine: Oh... yes. My hunger is running high these days. I'll be needing many more resources to keep my strength up soon.
    Pestilence: Have you selected a champion for this season?
    Famine: War's did him little good... and none of my previous 'champions' have been up to the task.
    Pestilence: Do you intend to hand them this struggle, then? Whose side are you on?
    Famine: On the side of continued existence.
    Pestilence: No matter. I have someone in mind. A creature after your own heart... A sniveling rat. He will act of his own accord and never need even know the service he provides.
    Famine: Who--?
    Pestilence: Shhhhh... it's a SeekRat...

    «Scene fades to darkness and returns to the Cider House.»

    Kosefira: Helloooo-looo-looo, «You»! You are just in time for my yodeling lesson!
    Doofus von Strudel: Go grab a pint of cider at the Cider House! It rules!
    «You»: ... hey, do you ever get the feeling we've been here before?
    Kosefira: What do you mean?
    «You»: It's just that I swear we've had this conversation before.
    «You»: This is, what, the fourth year of this holiday now? Surely you'd think things would be different after a while.

    «Farmer Eastman enters from the west.»

    Farmer Eastman: Help us! The BURPs have invaded our crops again!
    «You»: What, now? In the middle of the Harvest Festival?
    Doofus & Kosefira: How did you know...
    «You»: I told you. We've been here before.
    Farmer Eastman: The army is larger than ever! And their leader is some sort of talking BURP wearing a monocle!
    «You»: A talking BURP wearing a monocle... Oh no... not him again. He must have gotten tired spending so much time writing simple quizzes.
    «You»: But why would the SeekRat be leading the BURPs this time? And why would they attack NOW, of all times?
    «You»: Something doesn't add up here, but there's no time to sit down and figure it out right now. I've got BURPs to stop!
  • War!

    Harvest of Evil!
    War camp
    This season's BURPs are more organized than ever, and it seems that the SeekRat is leading them! But why would the SeekRat be in charge of the BURP army, and why are they attacking during the Harvest Festival?
  • To Battle!
  • Back to Town

    Guardians can click on the potion bag to refill their potions if they have less than 4 potions on hand.

    The Huntress is making a new life with the WarpForce, but has stopped by Lore for some pest control!
    Brontus is the warlord of the Orcs on the side of Unity!
    Robina Hood the ranger doesn't mind getting rid of a few pests!
    Lavistria is one of the greatest Elven hunters!
    ElBhe the Shadowkitten heard there would be tasty treats here!

    Twilly: Oh noes! WATS! WATS are everywhere!! Pwease help save us!
    Twilly: If you need to be healed I can help you.
  • Heal me please
  • Let me handle this!
    Twilly: There you goes! All healed up!
  • Thank you!
    To Battle!

    Who will you go into battle with?
  • With Brontus
  • With Lavistria
  • With Robina
  • With the Huntress
  • With ElBhe
  • By yourself

    Regardless of choice:

      Optional Full Heal
      Optional Full Heal

      «On the second set of battles, you have a 90% chance of fighting two random battles, and a 10% chance of fighting one "mini-boss" battle. See below for the full list.»

    After all 750,000 BURPs were defeated:
      Optional full heal after every other battle
    «Scene: Battleon»

    «You»: SeekRat! You're going to pay for raising another BURP army! Especially during a celebration such as the Harvest Festival!
    SeekRat: Another? What do you mean? This is the first time I've ever raised such an army.
    «You»: But this isn't the first time we've fought your kind. We seem to do this every two years.
    SeekRat: ... what?!? Preposterous! Are you saying someone else has STOLEN my idea?
    «You»: Your idea? Before you, it was BlackWhisker... and before him, the Pied Burper... How could you not know this? They were both HERE!
    SeekRat: IMPOSSIBLE! YOU ARE LYING! And if you insist on lying, then I'll beat the truth out of you, «You»!
  • Fight!

    «You»: You've lost, SeekRat. Now I want some answers. What keep causing all of these BURP Wars?
    «You»: If you're not the one pulling the strings, I want to know who is!
    SeekRat: You're... not lying, are you? So this really has happened before...
    SeekRat: But this can't be right. The idea just came to me, and clearly, no one else could have produced such brilliance!
    «You»: The idea just 'came to you'? You're sure you never talked to any of the other BURP leaders?
    SeekRat: Since when did I agree to tell you anything? We're enemies! Bah! I'll figure this out on my own, I don't need you!
    SeekRat: Don't think I have forgotten what you and that cursed shadowkitten did to me!
    «You»: Heheh... Yeah, we kicked your butt pretty good. Good times.
    SeekRat: No matter. I have other plans already in motion to exact my revenge on the both of you. You will see soon enough!
    SeekRat: The next time we meet, «You», I will have my revenge!

    «The SeekRat leaves.»

    «You»: He didn't know about the other BURP wars? Unless I'm giving him too much credit, he's too smart to have just forgotten something like that.
    «You»: And if he didn't get the idea from his BURP friends, then someone must have planted the idea, somehow.
    «You»: That could explain why the other BURP leaders started their wars, too. But who could be behind something like this?

    «Serenia enters.»

    «You»: Serenia!!
    Serenia: I fear that the one at fault is my brother. The BURPs are generally his agents, though I suspect he acts at the behest of another.
    «You»: Your brother? And who does he act for?
    Serenia: My brother and I are like two sides to a coin. We both work closely with the demipower of Fertility.
    Serenia: I am her second on years where seed takes root and there is growth and life. He is the opposite...
    «You»: Wait... Fertility? That 'Myrakul Grao' person was supposed to be Fertility's avatar. Vince said that if we did not act, then Famine would be forced to take over.
    «You»: So then, your brother is Famine?

    «Scene zooms in on Serenia.»

    Serenia: His name is Adel. Adel Gazamiento. But yes, Famine is his better-known title. He is among the Horsemen along with War, whom you defeated some time ago.

    «Scene zooms out again.»

    «You»: But the Germinators, we beat and reprogrammed them! We won, so your brother should not have needed to act this year!
    Serenia: No, he should not have, though the continued damage of many wars does not help. But even with that he alone would not have had to act...
    Serenia: And given what we last said to each other, I am certain he would not have either. It is far more likely that another is influencing him.
    «You»: Who??
    Serenia: BURPs do more than destroy crops and eat them. They also are carriers of fleas and other parasites. These things can spread rather terrible diseases.
    Serenia: The one who is most likely to have instigated this conflict is another one of the Horsemen. The one known as Pestilence.
    «You»: I think I recall hearing about a plague in Vandar being spread by the BURP tick actually.
    Serenia: Yes, that was a particularly horrible contagion, and one of Pestilence's more nasty creations. It made people sing off-key and go utterly tone deaf.
    «You»: They called it the Harmonic Plague... or the Black Deaf, I think. How horrible.
    Serenia: Indeed, but that only led to hearing loss. Pestilence has much more sinister illnesses in his repertoire. I think that we need to face the fact that Pestilence is active on Lore once more.

    «Scene fades to black and then returns to outside Battleon, where Famine and Pestilence are.»

    Famine: They have won. It is done. The SeekRat has been defeated, and another BURP war has ended. Your effort is a failure.
    Pestilence: Oh no... my effort has only begun, and it was a total success. YOUR effort is a failure, but then, you never really tried very much. I did not expect you would.
    Famine: This manipulation is ended. Do what you will. I will not be involved.
    Pestilence: Oh, I will. Yet rest assured, you will have no choice soon enough.
    Famine: What do you mean?
    Pestilence: We will have a long cold winter ahead... more figuratively than literally, but perhaps we will get lucky and have both.
    Famine: Spit it out. Stop playing games.
    Pestilence: I can spread disease through anything, dear Famine, not just people. Let them continue their warring, as you know they will.
    Pestilence: As they fight, my power will rise even more surely than War's did.
    Famine: And?
    Pestilence: And my diseases will be carried. Some will die, others will become ill and unable to continue their work.
    Pestilence: These things alone will kill crops, but then the diseases and blights that I have had your BURPs spread on the wind will germinate.
    Pestilence: Germinate with the first seeds, and then as the diseases I have released take hold, crops will die.
    Pestilence: It is called disaster readiness. Even should my direct effort fail, my secondary action will force your sniveling hand into action.
    Pestilence: That is, unless you want to get into trouble with the others, or with 'him', for failing in your duties, Adel dear.
    Famine: You are terrible, and I will have no more of this. I'm leaving.
    Pestilence: Go eat something before you waste away...

    «Famine leaves.»

    Pestilence: Of course, I do not intend to need your help. But it can never hurt to be too prepared...

    «Pestilence leaves and the SeekRat enters.»

    SeekRat: So «You» was right... these two monsters, 'Pestilence' and 'Famine,' DARED to temper with my brilliant mind?
    SeekRat: No matter how powerful you are, you monsters, you will come to regret this. I do not forgive or forget those who dare to use me for their own ends.
    SeekRat: Just you wait. When I have obtained the power I seek... every one of you will rue the day you crossed me!
