This is when random numbers of monsters attack a place in Syrnia. A place that is being invaded will have all its features disabled. You will not be able to work there, access houses or shops or even thieve other players in a place that is under attack. Players must then work together to defeat the attacking monsters within a matter of minutes. If they are not killed before the timer reaches 0, the monsters will take control of the town and their numbers will increase, making them harder to kill. If they are beaten however, the top three players based on the number of kills, will receive a gold bounty for their hard work. See Combat
for more information on fighting.
The first to open the chest will get the contents. You will need to guess a number within a given
range. See Thieving
for more information.
These can be found in the Speed
section of the Manual, only found whilst walking
NPC Chase & random events
Occasionally Syrnia will be visited by a visitor- you can chase the character from place to place and they will travel to different islands in random orders. The Non Player Characters (NPC) appear in different guises, Jack Frost, Halloween Witch or the Easter Bunny etc. and will appear at the top of the Players list at the chosen town.
They will move every 15 minutes on the chosen days and their island location can be seen in red text in World Chat.
Once you find them you can thieve the character and successfully thieve an item or you may end up in Jail for 120 seconds! Lots of bailing and chatter usually occur in Region Chat . You should stay near the NPC for the time they depart and players may be awarded another prize, which may appear in your inventory.
It's random, so everyone at that location who has thieved the NPC has the same chance of getting a prize, so good luck and happy chasing!
Note: Players can only win once an hour, for example if you win at :01 you will not be able to get a prize again until after the :46 winners are announced.
Serpenthelm farms is an event added during Halloween 2019. It is a farming event at Rose gates where you can bring a spade and dig for farming experience and some fun rewards. Any spade will work at this event, but as you use better spades, the timer and drops get better. It's at Rose gates from when the NPC character for Halloween arrives to when it leaves.
