During the event "In Demeter's Name" there is war raging on the islands, and many people are on the run. Help them and be kind to those who are in need. Feed the young as well as the old. The goddess Demeter will shower you with rewards for your generosity and hospitality.
Over the course of the event (26 January - 10 February, 2017) you are the owner of a tavern wherein you will have the opportunity to serve meals! You will be able to use 8 different types of provisions to unlock prizes that will help you dominate your enemy. You can collect provisions every day, by performing one of the following in game actions: attacking and defending, constructing buildings, researching, casting divine powers or recruiting units.
Once you have enough provisions, you can mix them together on the main event screen, and you will be rewarded with a specific bonus. The served meal for that combination will then be stored in your Book of Meals for future reference.
In addition to the rewards you receive from serving meals, you will also have the opportunities to compete against your fellow players in the daily rankings. The top player of the day will be given the Master Innkeeper award, and the top 4 players of the event will be given the prestigious Lord of Innkeepers award!
In order to serve a meal you must first gather three provisions. It does not matter which provisions you use, and you may use more than one of the same type. Once you have the necessary ingredients you may put them on the plates by dragging them on an empty plate located on the main event screen. Once all 3 plates are filled you can click "Serve".
After you click "Serve", your ingredients will be combined and you will receive a reward from the guest. You may use the reward immediately, store it in your inventory if you have space or throw it away. You will not be able to serve another meal until you have collected your reward.
How to collect provisions
You can find provisions for your meals just by playing the game. Below are some common actions that will award provisions:
- Attacking and defending
- Recruiting units
- Construction of buildings
- Casting of spells
Each time you find provisions, you are informed by a pop-up. This pop-up also appears in the app version of the game to inform you about your progress. However, provisions can only be used in the browser version.
The amount of free provisions you can receive daily for free is limited to 10. You can buy as many additional provisions as you want by spending gold, although the price of each ingredient will increase with each purchase by the base price (and will reset at midnight).
|Name||Goat cheese||Kykeon||Soup||Roasted fish||Vegetables||Steak||Skewer||Red wine|
|Base price in gold||50||50||50||50||75||75||110||110|
Book of Meals
The Book of Meals will automatically save the combinations of provisions that you have completed, so that you can easily reference back to them! Meals, in the Book of Meals, will be ordered by the type of reward, and you will be able to filter through your provisions by availability or needed provision.
If you wish to unlock an unknown meal without experimenting, you may do so for a small amount of gold.
All players can compete against each other in terms of served meals on a daily basis. Every time you serve a meal, you will get a random amount of Hospitality Points (up to 10). The ranking is based on these points. No matter which meal you create, you always have the same chance to get points.
As soon as you serve the first meal in a day, you will be listed on the daily ranking. The winner of the day (rank 1) will earn an award, and an effect. Every day at 8pm (Server Time) the ranking gets evaluated and reset. The rewards get handed out as soon as the evaluation is finished.
Award: Master Innkeeper 2017 (Daily Award)
The overall ranking will work much the same as the daily ranking, but it will not reset. It will run until the event ends.
The top 10 players in the overall ranking list will receive several bonus rewards as soon as the event ends. Additionally the top 4 players of the event will be awarded the Lord of Innkeepers award to display on their profile!
