Christmas event 2015
Christmas 2015 icon
This year, we've created something extra special for everyone: An entire interactive adventure. Play through 12 different storylines (one per day), decide whether you want to be naughty or nice. If you play through all twelve, you'll get a special badge--though there'll be no other rewards for daily participation, so don't feel pressured to take time away from your real holidays. Don't forget to breed all of your past Holiday Dragons. Breeding starts now (00:00 on 12/19) and continues for exactly seven days, ending at 00:00 on 12/26. Past holiday dragons will continue to have no limit, so grab as many as you can find. Restrictions on keeping multiple eggs from a single pair continue to apply. Last (but not least) a new Holiday Dragon will be released at 00:00 on 12/25. It will drop for exactly three days, ending at 00:00 on 12/28.

As of January 29, 2016, the game is now re-playable here.

As of February 14, 2016, the Valkemarian Tales: Jolly Follies soundtrack is available for purchase here.

RONIN: "Oh, this is terrible!"

RENO: "One of our cats, Buffy, escaped from the den and went missing. Normally she would just come home again in a couple of days, but-"
RONIN: "There's a storm coming! If we don't find her before it hits, she could freeze to death!"

Day Three

Show/Hide

Player exits home; it's snowing hard outside.

ANSEL: "...!"
"Hey, wait!"

Ansel approaches the player.

ANSEL: "You're <NAME>, right? I'm the new courier, Ansel."

"I was supposed to deliver a few things to the Mining Outpost west of town, but all this wind and snow have made that bridge awfully unstead- and I'm terrified of heights!"
"The post office is swamped with mail for the holidays and now I'm behind schedule, too!"
"If you could just take these to Foreman Jude out at the Mining Outpost, I'd be beyond grateful."

"Really, you'll help? Thanks, you're a lifesaver!"

Player received: Cask of Oil
Player received: Bag of Beans
Player received: Quark the Magelight Pygmy

ANSEL: "Oh, I almost forgot. Postmaster Hand says that Quark the magelight is a handful. Try to keep him from damaging the goods, okay?"
"Thanks again, and happy holidays!"

Ansel leaves.
Player heads west and attempts to cross the bridge.

"You probably shouldn't carry all this over at once, or you'll slip."

Player lays down the two items as well as the Magelight Pygmy.

"Interact with something to pick it up. Carry the items across one at a time."

If the player attempts to cross having taken none of the items:

"Quark might try to eat all of the beans while you're gone."

If the player attempt to cross with the Bag of Beans:

"Quark might accidentally set the oil alight while you're gone."

If the player attempt to cross with the Cask of Oil:

"Quark might try to eat all of the beans while you're gone."

If the player tries to enter the Mining Outpost without any of the items:

"You can't just leave without the things you're supposed to deliver."

Puzzle is solved by: Crossing Quark first, taking one of the other items across, bringing Quark back to other side, take across the other item then return for Quark.
Upon completion, a special sound is played and the player collects up all the items before heading into the Mining Outpost.

JUDE: "Wonderful! You brought the supplies I ordered. Thanks for coming out in all this snow; I expected the shipment to be delayed."
(JUDE takes: Bag of Beans, Cask of Oil)
JUDE: "I need to put these away. If you could watch this little imp for a moment, I'll be right back."

If the player attempts to leave the Outpost:

"You shouldn't leave Quark alone. Maybe take a look around the room while you wait?"

Player has the option to activate the trinket on the counter.
Smashing sound effect plays, and the trinket is now smashed on the floor.

"... Ooops! What was once a pretty trinket of some sorts is now mere rubble."
JUDE: "What in tarnation was that?"
"What happened?"

Choose: 'Quark knocked it over' or 'I dropped it'

Player Dropped Option:

JUDE: "Ah, well, thanks for being honest. I never liked that old thing anyway. You did me a favor!"
"And thanks for delivering my supplies in this weather. My crew will definitely appreciate the extra provisions."

Quark Dropped Option:
JUDE: "Oh? That's a crying shame. My father got that back when he first established this mining outfit..."

"Ah well... thanks again for delivering my supplies in this weather."
Day complete!


Day Four

Show/Hide
"...?"

A person walks by the player and their house.
Player walks up to the town square and has the option to speak with the person, who is circling around the town square.

LIUD: "Not now, kid. Yesterday's snowstorm knocked down a fence at my ranch and all my reindeer escaped! If they find their way into town I'll get fined again- and what if a dragon gets 'em, eh?"

"Why am I tellin' you, anyhow? Kids these days only care about themselves."
"Wait. Ye mean ye'll actually help? That's a shock."
"I bet they got spooked and ran up the mountain pass north of my ranch, but all that fresh snow set off an avalance up there earlier and I'm worried they might've gotten hurt."

"I'd go meself but, well, my arm... Eh, forget it. Just take the road west out of town and then head north, past my ranch. Here..."

Player received: Reindeer Treats

LIUD: "If y'do manage to find them, they'd follow you anywhere for a taste of one those. Luck be with ye."

Liud continues circling in the town square- he can then be found in front of his ranch when the player heads west. If spoken to, the following message is given:

LIUD: "Luck be with ye."

The player approaches an ice skating puzzle. The rocks can be used to stop the player from skating around, and used in the right combination(s) can get the player to the path on the left.
Player is required to take the following steps: Up, right, down, left, up, right, down, left, up, left.

Player comes up to a large pile of snow blocking their path. Activating it will cause the following:

"You dig your way through the snowdrift."
*digging sound effect*

Player must then navigate a labyrinth on the right to reach the other side.
When activating a reindeer, the following message is given:

"The reindeer smell their favourite treat and begin to follow you."

This will cause the other 3 reindeer to teleport to the player and follow them.

Digging through the last snowdrift pile at the end of the path will cause the following:

"You found a Golden Pocketwatch buried in the snow!"

Reaching the bottom of all the ledges will cause the following:

"What would you like to do with the reindeer?

Choose: 'Set loose in town' or 'Lead back to ranch'

Lead Back Option

Player walks back to the ranch with the reindeer following.
LIUD: "Well I'll be... ye found 'em! This means a lot. My wife, she... well, they were always her pride and joy..."
"..."
"Ahem. Anyway. Thanks for bringing them back in one piece."

Set Loose Option

Player walks to the east with the reindeer following.
The player stands and turns to look in all different directions as reindeer run loose in the town center.
"Day complete!"


Day Five

Show/Hide

Player steps outside of house- a person is pacing around outside and the player has the option to speak with them.

ROMEO: "Oh, hey <NAME>! Are you busy? I was hoping to sort of patch things up with Alana, my ex, by giving her a gift. You know, for the holidays."

"The trouble is, now that I've got it I'm too nervous to go over and give it to her!"
"Pathetic, I know, but I really need your help."

"Could you just... give this to her and then tell me what she says?"

Player received: Festive Gift

ROMEO: "Thanks <NAME>, you're a real pal. Alana still lives over on the east side of town. I'll just wait here for you to get back, ok?"

If Romeo is spoken to again before the gift is delivered, the following message is given:

ROMEO: "Alana still lives over on the east side of town. I'll just wait here for you to get back, ok?"

Player enters Alana's house.

ALANA: "Oh, hello! Can I help you?"

"..."
"I see."
"I'm really sorry, but I can't accept this gift. I appreciate the thought and all- it's very sweet of him- but I've moved on now, and he should too. Would you tell him that for me?"

"Thanks- and happy holidays! I hope this wasn't too awkward."

Option to speak again with Alana gives the following message:

"I hope this wasn't too awkward."

Option to speak with Margo gives the following message:

MARGO: "Haha, yeah, this is a little uncomfortable"

Player speaks with Romeo again.

ROMEO: "So, how'd it go?"

Choose: 'Lie about Alana' or 'Return the gift'

Return the Gift Option**

ROMEO: "..."
"She said all that, huh? Bummer..."
"Ah, well. She's right. It's time I moved on, too."

Romeo turns to leave but then returns to the player.

ROMEO: "Go ahead and keep the present- I've got no use for it. And <NAME>..."
"Thanks for being honest."

Romeo walks away back to his house.

Lie About Alana Option
ROMEO: "Really? Oh man, this couldn't possibly have gone any better!"
"Thanks <NAME>! I'm gonna have to go talk to her myself someti-"
"tomorrow! I'll go visit her tomorrow."
"See you around!

Romeo runs off back to his house.

Either response will now result in a present being left on the sidetable at the player's house.
"Day complete!"


Day Six

Show/Hide

Perl approaches the player's house.

PERL: "Oh, hi <NAME>!"

Perl now approaches the player.

PERL: "I was just over visiting BILL and SADIE. Did you hear BILL got hurt in that avalance the other day? Scary!"
"I bet both of them could use some more cheering up. Their house is just north of yours- you should pop in for a visit!"

Perl leaves and the player heads north to the indicated house.

SADIE: "I'm sorry, now isn't a very good time. Come back later?"

"... Oh, PERL sent you? I see."

"My brother BILL has gotten quite grumpy from being stuck in this bed all day. I'd love to do something to cheer him up, but I can't leave him alone for a second or he's liable to do something stupid."
BILL: "I heard that!"
SADIE: "Maybe you can help? His favorite kind of winter flower grows like crazy in the fields east of town. If you could just gather some, I'm sure he'd cheer up."

If Sadie is spoken to again, the following message is given:

"His favorite kind of winter flower grows like crazy in the fields east of town."
# Special Note #
At this point in the story, it is possible to completely circumvent the day's nice or naughty choice. To do so, the Flower Fields map must be accessed instead by going from the Town Center map to North Nulhora, which will lead to the East Nulhora map that goes further east to the Flower Fields. Once the flowers are collected, it is still possible to experience the day's choice by going west through East Nulhora back to the Town Center; before reaching the town, you will be prompted with the day's choice. To avoid the choice completely, simply return using the same route through North Nulhora. It is unknown whether collecting flowers twice using this method will result in issues with the game- it is recommended to avoid this situation.

Having the player arrive in the East map from the Town Center map, or is already in the East map and is heading to the Town Center map, will cause the following prompt:

"...?"

Player approaches Rita's flower garden.

"These look like the flowers that SADIE described. Maybe RITA won't notice some missing."
"What would you like to do?"

Choose: 'Take some flowers.' or 'Leave them alone.'

Leave Alone Option:

"It wouldn't be very nice to steal someone else's flowers."

Player must then proceed east to the Flower Fields to collect their bouquet.

Take Some Option:
"Taking these flowers will save a lot of effort."

Player received: Bouquet.

Rita's garden is now left torn up and will stay this way from now on.

Approaching any flower patch in the Flower Fields map will prompt the following message:

"These look like the flowers that SADIE described."
"What would you like to do?"

Choose: 'Take some flowers.' or 'Leave them alone.

Taking flowers gives the following prompt:

Player received: Bouquet.

Player returns to Sadie.

SADIE: You brought the flowers! They're beautiful- I bet these are JUST what BILL needs to cheer up a bit! Thank you so much <NAME>!"
Day complete!


Day Seven

Show/Hide

Someone knocks at the player's door.

"... <NAME>, are you awake? I need your help!"
HAND: "Have you seen ANSEL? He hasn't come to work since that snowstorm blew through."

"..."
"Oh no... He was going to deliver some parcels to the town on the other side of the mountains to the north, but he should have been back ages ago! What if he's hurt?"
"We're so far behind on deliveries, I can't possibly spare the time to search for him. Would you please go see if you can find anything?"
"... Thank you! I'm lost without my best courier."

"You should start looking around on the northern route- that's where he should have gone. Please hurry!"

Once walking up the Mountain Route map, player automatically approaches the Solstice dragon.

LUNA: "Wait, traveler. One of your kind is in peril, and I cannot reach him to help."

"I tried to reassure him, but he has been trapped for three days and his spirit is failing."

"Come, I shall lead you to him."

Player and dragon walk a distance.

LUNA: "I can still sense his presence inside. Make haste!"

Player enters cavern.

ANSEL: "<NAME>! Th-th-thank goodness you came!"
"... Watch out!"

Player moves forward as a rock falls from the ceiling, blocking the path they came from.

ANSEL: "That was close. I-I'm really glad you're here, <NAME>."

"I-I was trying to deliver some parcels to the town in the north, but, well... I lost my way in all that snow a- and twisted my ankle really bad. I barely managed to take shelter in here."

"I think... I think I can walk if you help me, but... the cave-in... You'll h- have to find another way out."

If player interacts with Ansel again, the folllowing message is given:

"I think... I think I can walk if you help me, but... the cave-in... You'll h- have to find another way out."

Reading the signpost in the caverns gives the following instructions:

"[Hitchhiker's Guide To The Caverns]"

"Even though the rocks ahead look heavy, you can push and pull them with ease."

"Just press the "activate" button and start moving."

Interacting with rubble piles:

"You shove the pile of rubble out of the way.
*sound effect* "

Once the player has cleared the path:

"It looks like the path is clear. You should go help ANSEL."

The player is preventing from progressing any further and must return the way they came.

ANSEL: "You found the way out? Let's go!"
"I'm sorry you had to do all this for me..."

Player and Ansel exit the caverns.

LUNA: "ANSEL! It's wonderful to finally meet you. And your leg... dear child..."
ANSEL: "I-It's nothing, I'm sure I'll be fine."
LUNA: "Climb on my back, both of you. You will make it home far faster if we fly."

Screen goes black.

ANSEL: "...F - f - fly? Couldn't we just wa- AHHH!"

Player and Ansel are now back at Ansel's home.

HAND: "ANSEL!"
"You rescued him! And more or less in one piece, too- you're a hero, <NAME>! And... who's this lovely lady?"
ANSEL: "L-L-LUNA. She helped <NAME> find me."
HAND: "Well thank you, LUNA, truly. I'd be lost without this kid."

Player goes to leave but is stopped.

HAND: "Oh, <NAME>!"

"I hate to impose after all you've done for us already, but..."
"We're still way behind at the post office, and with ANSEL injured I can't see how we'll ever catch up."

"If it's not too much trouble, could you deliver a few letters for me?"

Choose: 'Decline' or 'Accept'

Accept Option

HAND: "You are too good for this world, <NAME>! Just deliver these to the individual named on the front. And don't mind JANUS; that old Holly dragon may look intimidating, but he has a heart of pure gold."

Player received: Letter to JOE, Letter to PERL, Letter to JANUS.

Upon speaking with Joe, the following message is given:
JOE: "..."
"Much appreciated <NAME>. You're a good kid."

Upon speaking with Janus the Holly dragon, the following message is given:
JANUS: "Ah yes, just the message I was waiting to hear."
"(JANUS eats the letter.)"

Upon speaking with Perl, the following message is given:
PERL: "Oh, thanks <NAME>! You look like you've had a long day."

Decline Option

HAND: "... Oh, I see. Well, we'll just have to make do somehow. Thanks again for finding my courier, <NAME>."
Day complete!


Day Eight

Show/Hide

Perl approaches the player.

PERL: "Hi <NAME>! How've you been? I heard about ANSEL- it's so cool how you rescued him. He's already starting to feel better. And seeing that Solstice dragon! I hear they're really rare."

"BILL really appreciated his flowers, too! SADIE seems relieved."
"Now I just wish my cousin VALA would cheer up. He's been moping around for days!"
"Maybe you can go talk to him? He's visiting the farm south of town today."

"Thanks!"

Vala can be found South, outside dressed in blue.

VALA: "Oh... hi <NAME>..."

"I'm trying to build a snowman, but the stupid snowballs keep falling apart. Will you help me?"

"Just push the snowballs together. Try not to hit any rocks, though, or your snowball will break."

Reading the signpost nearby will give further instructions:

"[Hitchhiker's Guide to the Winter]"

"If your snowball falls off a ledge, it will break!"

"Nobody likes a dirty snowball. Try to avoid patches of dirt!"

If any of the snowballs touch a rock or each other at any point, the following message is given whilst the playing field is partially reset:

VALA: "Oh... the snowball broke. I guess we'll have to start over."

Upon completion of the puzzle:

VALA: "You did it! That was actually fun; thanks for helping me."
"I'm sorry I was so grumpy before. It's just that I lost my grandpa's pocket watch in the snow the other day during that big storm. Don't tell PERL, okay?"

Choose: 'Give pocketwatch' or 'Keep pocketwatch'

Give Option

Vala spins around.

VALA: "Holy cow! Where'd you find it? Thanks, <NAME>, you're the best!"
"My grandpa passed away a few years ago- this watch is priceless."

Keep Option

VALA: "Thanks for not telling her. I just don't know what to do... that pocket watch was one of the only things we had left to remember him by since he passed away..."
Day complete!


Day Nine

Show/Hide
JANUS: "<NAME>."
"Would you mind helping out an old friend?"

Player approaches and interacts with Janus the Holly dragon.

JANUS: "Ah, <NAME>. It's hard to believe it's already been a year since that dreadful blizzard, isn't it?"

"Some days it feels like it never even happened at all- but here we are..."
"... Ahem. Pardon me. A friend of mine lives not far north of Nulhora, and this month marks a very special anniversary for her and her mate as well. I want to invite them to the [sic] our festival, but these old bones are not what they once were."

"JOE helped me write them a formal invitation. If you could deliver it to them, I would be most grateful- and I suspect they will be eager to meet you, too."

Player received: Special Invitation

JANUS: "Follow the road north out of town and into the mountains- and please make sure they receive the invitation."

Walking north once entering the Northern Forests map will trigger the following:

???: "Skreeeeee!"

Player approaches the situation.

BORD: "Help me!"
Howler: "Reeeeh!"
"If only you could distract them with a treat. JOE might be able to help you."

If the player does not have 'Mushroom Poppers' in their inventory, they must go to Joe's General Store and obtain them before the story can progress.
If the player has 'Mushroom Poppers' in their inventory, the option to select "Throw shroom poppers" will be available.

Howlers: "Skreeeeee!"

The player will move away and the Howler Drakes will leave.

BORD: "Thanks a bunch! I'm BORD. My mum ORELA is going to be really mad. I should get home, but what if those drakes come back? They're really scary!"
"You'll take me home, right? Our cave is on top of that great big mountain to the north."

If the player attempts to go South:

BORD: "Where are you going? I need to go home."

Player must go further north to the Northern Mountains, and enter the Northern Mountain, and navigate through it to get up the mountain side.

BORD: "Look, there's our cave! I think I can make it alone from here."

Choose: 'Let him deliver the letter' or 'Accompany BORD home'

Accompany Option**

BORD: "Oh, okay! Maybe it's better to be safe than sorry."

Continuing further north, the player will reach a final cave.

BORD: "Mum!"

Bord runs back to his parents.

KUNO: Thank you for bringing BORD home. Ever since he almost didn't hatch in the storm last year, we fret over him constantly."
"... Oh? What's this?"
ORELA: "An invitation from JANUS? That sly old dog."
BORD: "Are we going to a party?"
KUNO: "Please let JANUS know we wouldn't miss it."
BORD: "Yay! I guess I'll see you again soon, <NAME>!"

Leave Him Option

BORD: "Sure I can deliver the letter! I have to pay you back somehow."
Day complete!


Day Ten

Show/Hide
"...?"
MILO: "!!!"

Milo and the player approach each other.

MILO: "Ah, <NAME>- the person of the hour! I've heard about all you've been doing for the town lately, and as the mayor of Nulhora I'd like to thank you personally."

"Then again, I'd expect nothing less from someone like you! In fact..."
"Could you do me a quick couple of favors? I desperately need to catch my breath."

"Here; take these and just hang them up around town square like I did."

Player received: Garlands

If Mayor Milo is spoken to again:

MILO: "Thank you so much for your help."

Interacting with any of the pre-decorated or undecorated lamps will give the following message:

"The lamp looks much more festive with the decorations."

Once all the lamp posts in the town center have been decorated:

MILO: "Excellent! Now it'd be a huge help if you could take this over to ROBIN, the tailor, on the north side of town to be let out? It feels a little tighter than it was last year."

Player received: Tuxedo

MILO: "Thanks to you I might actually be able to finish everything I've got left to do before the party!"

Walking into the tailor's store will trigger the following:

ROBIN: "The mayor needs this let out again? All right..."

The player is about to leave when Robin speaks again.

ROBIN: "Oh, <NAME>- would you go check in on GALYS over at her farm? I've been meaning to lend her a hand with some repairs since she shouldn't be digging post holes anymore, but I've had my hands full all season."
"Her farm house is the big one at the end of the dirt path west of here- you can't miss it."

Walking into Galys' farm house will trigger the following:

GALYS: "Hello there, sugar! What brings you all the way out here?"

"ROBIN sent you to help around the farm? That's awfully sweet, but LIUD offered to come by after the festival. The man's so handy you'd never guess he'd lost an arm to that- well, maybe that was before your time."
"I tell you what. I promised NED I'd send him fresh currants for his pies, but this cold is rough on my joints."

"It'd be much appreciated if you could make the delivery for me."

Player received: Currants

Walking into the bakery will trigger the following:

NED: "Oh, thank you! These are just what I needed."

Walking outside again will cause the player to stop and observe the fresh pies on the table outside.

"These pies smell absolutely delicious."

Choose: 'Steal a pie' or 'Leave the pies alone'

Leave the Pies Option*

Ned steps out of the store.

NED: "Oh <NAME>, since you brought me those red currants I think I'll end up with a couple of extra pies for the party than I needed."
"I'd like you to have one. Consider it a token of my gratitude; and besides, you look pretty hungry."

Player received: Pie

Steal a Pie Option
Ned runs out of the shop to the player.

NED: "AHA! I saw that! These pies are for everyone to enjoy at the party tomor-row, not for some thieving pigeon in a parka to peck at. Go on the, off with you!"

"Who steals a pie? Honestly..."
Day complete!


Day Eleven

Show/Hide

Two people are talking and one walks away.

STEVE: "Hey there!"
"My name's STEVE, and this naughty girl is my best mate and assistant, BOSON."
BOSON: "Reee!"
STEVE: "As an explorer, I get to do some of the wildest things in the world! Right now, I'm chasing an ancient secret that could be hidden right beneath our feet. Trouble is, no one believes me!"

"If there is a dragon temple nearby, the information we could gain about ancient Valkemarians would be invaluable."

"You'll helo me out? Fantastic! I noticed something unusual along the north route after that big storm blew through- I'll go on ahead and you can meet me out there when you're ready. Come on girl!"
BOSON: "Reee!"

The player can find Steve in the Norther Mountains map, eastern side (where there were once many large boulders blocking the path).

STEVE: "I managed to clear a path, but I haven't checked it out yet. If we find anything, I want to share it with you."
"I think I see something to the east. Let's go!"

Entering the cavern will trigger the following:

STEVE: "Amazing! It seems to be glowing from within."

"And look at the door over there!"
"There seems to be some kind of crystal feature embedded in the door that looks like the crystal over here."

"Maybe the two are related?"

If Steve is spoken to again, the following message is given:

"This crystal... that mirror... and the door. Hmm..."

Interacting with the mirror will allow the player to push and pull it like a rock.
Pulling it into the middle of the path will allow for the beam of light to land on the door and open it, at which point the beam of light fades away.

STEVE: "Holy smokes! It's open!"
"Let's go inside!"
STEVE: "Fascinating... this temple must be at least hundreds of years old."
"The light from that crystal activated the light mana in the door. If we could just find a way to do the same thing in here..."

Once the puzzle is completed:

STEVE: "Great job!"

If the player attempts to stray from the main corridor of the new room:

STEVE: "Hey, <NAME>. Could you come over here?"

Continuing along the main corridor will trigger the following:

STEVE: "This dragon head looks completely different from the others- and look! There are three indentations in the eyes and mouth. I wonder what those are for."
"Maybe you should investigate the other corridors."

Interacting with the dragon head with no crystals in the inventory will give the following message:

"There appear to be three slots for something to be inserted."

Interacting with the southern dragon head will give the following message:

"There is a light mana crystal in the dragon's eye."

Player received: Light Mana Crystal

Interacting with the eastern dragon head will give the following message:

"There is a dark mana crystal in the dragon's eye."

Player received: Dark Mana Crystal

Interacting with the northern dragon head will give the following message:

"There is a magi mana crystal in the dragon's mouth."

Player received: Magi Mana Crystal

Interacting with the dragon head with all 3 crystals in the inventory will give the following message:

"You insert the mana crystals into the dragon statue."

A door to the south opens up.

STEVE: "Did you hear that? It sounded like another door opened up to the south."
STEVE: "How's that for security?"
"There's another door in the northwest side of the chamber. See what you can do about these mirrors!"

Once the puzzle is completed:

(Boson is missing at this point)
STEVE: "The door's open! See you on the other side."
STEVE: I never thought I'd see something like this in all my life."

"Holy smokes! That statue... The ancient Valkemarians must have built this temple to honor a Guardian of Nature. I've only seen drawings, but that likeness is dead-on. And look! The trinkets in that dish must have been left as offerings by the last people to visit here."

"All of this, lying untouched for eons... what things we could learn..."

If the player attempts to leave the temple at this point, the following message is given:

STEVE: "I'm not quite ready to leave yet. Let's look around some more."

Interacting with the bowl will trigger the following:

"It appears to be an offering bowl of sorts."
"The glint of an ornately-crafted amulet catches your eye."

Choose: 'Take the amulet' or 'Leave it alone'

Leave it Option

"You know better than to desecrate a temple."

STEVE: "I wish we could stay here forever; it's so peaceful..."
"But we should head back to town. Wait until people hear about what we've discovered down here!"

Take it Option
"Surely no one will miss a thousand year old necklace."

Player received: Amulet

STEVE: "... I've suddenly got a bad feeling about this place. We should head back."

"I think I've gotten enough information to turn the historical community on its head!"
Day complete!


Day Twelve

Show/Hide

Once stepping outside, the player can see many of the past characters they've interacted with standing in the town center.
Each of them must be spoken to in order to progress the story. Who is present, and what is said, differs depending on the choices the player made throughout all the days.

If the player attempts to leave the town center:

"The party's happening! Nothing else is going on in town"

NEUTRAL INTERACTIONS
(These occur the same whether nice or naughty options were taken)

HILDE: "Have you seen my daughter? She's a wild one, isn't she?"
RANKO: "..."
SADIE: "Let's just hope my brother doesn't find a way to break his other leg."
BILL: "Thank you for the flowers!"
JUDE: "QUARK has already been an invaluable asset to my miners. Thanks again!"
AVERY: "...? Oh, hey <NAME>. It's been about a year, hasn't it?"

"I told you I'd see you around sometime. Still got that avatar scale?"

"... Good to hear. Who knows, you just might need it."
JANUS: "It is so wonderful to be able to celebrate with friends after last year's horrific storm."
STEVE: "Thanks again for helping uncover the secret of the dragon temple. Crikey, this is going to change everything."
JOE: "We live in interesting times, kid."
QUARK: "Quark!"
BOSON: "Reee!"
ROBIN: "This is such a nice party!"
QUILT: "Knitting is love. Knitting is life."
GALYS: "Thank you for offering to help. It's difficult running a farm by yourself at my age."
MILO: "Here's to you, whose bravery and perseverance helped save us all one year ago!"
ANSEL: "Luna says she wants to stay here with me!"
LUNA: "For the first time since the death of my sisters, I don't feel so alone."

NICE INTERACTIONS
(These occur if the player completed the nice choices- the player will only be shown interactions from this list for the appropriate days they made nice choices for)

(Dragon will be standing on its hind legs)

RENO: "One of our cats had a very special kitten a couple of months ago, and..."
RONIN: "Since you helped us find BUFFY, we'd like you to have it."

(A black-purple cat now follows the player.)
LIUD: "If it weren't for you, I'd have lost more than just one reindeer in that storm. Thank you."
ROMEO: "I'm happy for ALANA. MARGO seems really nice!"
ALANA: "ROMEO was always a sweet kid, but he and I just would never have worked out."
MARGO: "ALANA seems way more relaxed now that she and ROMEO have agreed to just be friends."
HAND: "Thanks to you, we were able to get all of our packages delivered in time for the holidays!"
VALA: "Thanks again for finding my grandpa's watch! You saved my butt."
ORELA: "It was so sweet of JANUS to invite us to this festival. It's almost like a birthday party for little BORD."
KUNO: "Thank you for everything you've done."
BORD: "It was soo cool how you distracted those howlers!"
NED: "Thanks for bringing me those red currants! I might not have had enough ingredients for the party otherwise."

NAUGHTY INTERACTIONS
(these occur if the player completed the naughty choices- the player will only be shown interactions from this list for the appropriate days they made naughty choices for)

(Dragon will be standing on all fours)

RONIN: "BUFFY never came home..."

RENO: "I hope somebody else took her in... or..."
LIUD: "Kids these days... can't count on 'em for anything..."
ROMEO: "Why didn't you just tell me the truth? I made a complete fool of myself..."
ALANA: "I feel really bad about ROMEO..."
MARGO: "You made the ROMEO situation way worse than they needed to be."
HAND: "I wish that we had been able to deliver everything in time for the holidays. I'm glad ANSEL is all right, but I hate letting our customers down."
VALA: "PERL found out about the watch. I don't think she'll ever forgive me."
(Orela, Kuno and Bord are missing from the party.)
NED: "I've got my eye on you. Don't even think about stealing one of my pies."

Once all the townspeople have been spoken to, the story will continue:

????: "<NAME>! There you are! I've been looking all over for you."
PERL: "I think I picked the perfect gift for you. Go ahead, open it!"
If majority of player's actions were nice:

Player received a Festive Gift badge!

If majority of player's actions were naughty:

Player received a Lump of Coal badge!
PERL: "I think it suits you- don't you agree?"

Screen goes black.

PERL: "Happy holidays, <NAME>."

Credits roll with a final message:

Thanks for playing!

TriviaEdit

  • There were many returning characters from the Holiday 2014 Snow Warning event. Orela the Gold Dragon and Kuno the Nhiostrife Wyvern were featured in Snow Warning's Bonus Chapter 12. It told the story of Bord's birth, which is referenced in-game during dialogue with Kuno. Because of the 5 character limit on names however, Orela is shortened from Orelia. Janus the Holly and Avery are also returning characters from Snow Warning.
  • Avery, when spoken to on the final day, refers to the Avatar of Change scale from Snow Warning, and asks if the player still has it. This implies that the protagonist in Snow Warning and Valkemarian Tales: Jolly Follies are the same person.
  • Walking over ice patches had caused the player to slow down. Since Day 2, walking over ice turns the walk into a speedy slide. The direction of sliding remains constant until the player is stopped by a shore or another obstacle.
  • After a lot of users reported being able to bypass collision barriers or teleport outside of barriers, Day 2 brought a reset feature that allows users who get stuck to reset the chapter and free themselves.
  • If the player chose to keep the cat in Day 2, they can find the cat staying in their house- it can be interacted with where it will play a cat mewling sound clip.
  • If the player chose to keep the cat on Day 2, they would not have been shown the standing sprite of the Gilded Bloodscale.
  • Should the player find themselves up on a small ledge, they can jump down from it as opposed to finding the path back out again.
  • The tailor's shop sign indicates that the character's name is "Robyn" but speaking with the tailor will show their name as "Robin". It has since been confirmed that the latter spelling is the correct one.
  • The tailor is actually standing on the counter, rather than behind it.
  • When Day 4 events were first released, the ice skating puzzle could be avoided via following a thin ledge to the left and then skating upwards. This was promptly fixed with the addition of a large boulder.
  • The Gilded Bloodscale that appears in Day 2's events is the same one featured in Snow Warning's Bonus Chapter 11.
  • After speaking to Romeo on Day 5, opening the inventory displayed a glitch where all items (including future ones) appeared stacked on the side of the screen. They could not be highlighted to see their names however. This glitch occurs in various manners, with the giftbox item being removed completely and then being re-added but missing its name and flavor text.
  • From Day 5 and onwards, Joe's General Store can be visited and "Reindeer Sausage" can be obtained from the shopkeeper.
  • From Day 3 and onwards, the Town Center and North Nulhora will have houses and trees coated with snow due to the snow storm that hit (despite the snow storm effect not being present when the player visited North Nulhora).
  • Day 6 is the first day where the choice between nice and naughty can be skipped altogether without any consequences.
  • Day 8's nice and naughty choices are switched around from their usual order of presentation, with the nice option being first.
  • In Day 8's snowball game puzzle, the player can roll snowballs over dirt patches without any consequences to the game.
  • After Day 9, Bord can be found in the Northern Forests as well as the highest cavern with his parents. Neither forms of Bord can be interacted with however.
  • During Day 11's crystal collecting puzzle, the 3 dragon heads holding the different crystals are all molded in different ways. The one holding the Light Mana is shaped after the Avatar of Creation, as Light is the center element to the Creation group. The one holding the Dark Mana is shaped after the Avatar of Destruction, as Dark is the center element to the Destruction group. The last one holding the Magi Mana is shaped after the Avatar of Change, as Magi is the center element to the Change group. These 3 avatars can later be seen again on the Guardian of Nature statue at the end of the temple. The dragon head that holds all 3 crystals in the end is shaped after the Guardian of Nature.
  • The character "Steve" from Day 11 was based on the real life person Steve Irwin.
